Dr. Steve Byrd has been practicing as a plastic surgeon in Dallas, Texas since completing his residency in 1978. He is board certified by both the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He entered private practice at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas and was appointed vice-chairman to the Division of Plastic Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center following his residency.
Since those appointments, he has been distinguished as a full professor at the above mentioned University and has served as Chief of Service at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas. In addition, he is the Director of Plastic Surgery at Children's Medical Center, is past president of the Dallas County Society of Plastic Surgery, is a founding member and past president of the Rhinoplasty Society, and a former member of the board of the Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation.
In a recent poll, "Best Doctors in America", Dr. Byrd was elected by his peers as one of the top plastic surgeons in the United States. He accredits this acknowledgment to his uncompromising commitment to the highest standard of patient care, to the development of innovative and state of the art surgical techniques, and to the betterment of his specialty through the educational and governmental process.
Dr. Byrd's practice emphasis is aesthetic surgery. He is internationally known for his techniques in endoscopic facelift and rhinoplasty techniques. He has been invited to multiple countries where he has demonstrated these techniques.
Though Dr. Byrd's practice is characterized by a higher than average number of facelift and rhinoplasty patients, the aesthetic balance is found by a high number of aesthetic breast, liposuction, and body contouring patients. He is familiar with and utilizes a cross-section of saline implant styles, and commonly employs the endoscopic approach to breast enlargement. Similarly, he employs the latest techniques of liposuction and liposculpture including the use of syringe aspiration, tumescent infiltration, and fat grafting.
Dr. Byrd's operating facility, Dallas Day Surgery Center, is a fully acredited facility with a nationally quoted safety record for outpatient plastic surgery procedures. Of special note is "The Cloister", a six room hotel adjacent to the operating facility and designed for overnight patient stay. Nurses oversee the facility and food services are provided. In short, the practice is designed to accommodate local and out of town patients with a minimum of inconvenience and a maximum of attention and care.
