Meet Dr. Kasden
A board-certified plastic surgeon and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (F.A.C.S.), Dr. Scott E. Kasden focuses on serving patients in the Dallas, Fort Worth and Greater Metroplex areas with honesty and integrity. Dr. Kasden understands that plastic surgery is a want, not a need, so he and his staff take the time to educate patients on their options. He is committed to ensuring his patients have realistic expectations and that all of their questions are answered. Dr. Kasden's first concern is the safety of the patient as well as the success of the procedure. Dr. Kasden and his office staff work hard so that his patients are comfortable and enjoy their experience. With many years of training and experience,
Dr. Kasden performs many cosmetic and aesthetic surgery procedures designed to help his patients look more attractive and feel more confident. Since 1999, Dr. Kasden has focused his reconstructive efforts on cosmetic rehabilitation of massive weight loss patients (designed as a weight loss of greater than 50 pounds). The Massive Weight Loss (MWL) patient population has very specialized needs, and Dr. Kasden enjoys the challenges of these procedures and the medical management.
Since 1993 Dr. Kasden has enjoyed the technical aspects of plastic surgery, however it is the honor and responsibility, and relationship with his patients that he enjoys most.
