About Our Practice
Dr. Kenkel and his team bring decades of experience and a refreshing level of compassion to every interaction with their patients. Located on campus at the UT Southwestern Medical Center — where Dr. Kenkel trains some of the best and brightest future plastic surgeons — our practice in Dallas, TX, proudly combines a tradition of excellence with an upbeat atmosphere and warm hospitality. His second office, in UT Southwestern's Frisco location, allows him to provide a greater number of plastic surgery patients convenient access to this high level of care.
Our Approach to Patient Care
It's quite simple, really: We want you to look and feel your best. When you come to our practice, you can expect a candid, open conversation with Dr. Kenkel about how to best give you natural-looking results that meet your goals.
Dr. Kenkel strongly believes that a healthy lifestyle is an essential part of the equation, too. Cosmetic procedures can have a dramatic effect on your appearance, but once your recovery begins, you must do your part to complement Dr. Kenkel's work. Patients with health-conscious lifestyles invariably see the best and longest lasting results.
Our Office & Surgery Center
Dr. Kenkel is proud to practice on the campus of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, where he also serves as the Chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery. Our clinical practice resides in the outpatient building. This prestigious locale gives Dr. Kenkel (and by extension, his patients) access to world-class facilities unmatched by standalone practices.
Our surgical patients also have the luxury of staying at the on-site Medallion Guest Suites to begin their recovery in comfort and safety, with the added benefit of postoperative nursing care. Patients typically stay 1 or 2 nights after a procedure, and there is room for family to stay, too. Each room has the usual amenities you would expect in a hotel-like accommodation, along with optional meals, massage, and other services.
In May 2017, Dr. Kenkel began serving patients in Frisco at the UT Southwestern Otolaryngology/Plastic Surgery Clinic. This location provides residents of this growing community convenient access to his exceptional services.
Our team has been together for many years, and we truly enjoy working with one another and with you. We start taking care of you long before your procedure begins, and we strive to make you feel welcome from the moment you call our office. We are proud to have earned a reputation for treating our patients like family.
Because we want you to be as well prepared as possible for your surgery, we have put together a series of preoperative and postoperative instructions for our most common procedures. These documents tell you what to avoid in the weeks leading up to your procedure (e.g., smoking, birth control pills), how to prepare your body for surgery, and how to guide yourself to a successful recovery as you transition back home.
