James F. Boynton MD, FACS
About the Practice
I am passionate about plastic surgery and see as truly an art and a science. My father was a well-known modern Texas artist, and I was raised with a strong exposure to and background in art. Plastic surgery is really the ultimate crossroads of art and science for me within the practice of medicine and has been my true calling within medicine. I strive to treat each patient as I would my own family in order to deliver the best and safest care. Whether it be an aesthetic procedure or a reconstructive procedure , the core values, attention to detail, and anatomy are really the same in plastic surgery, and I am passionate about being able to treat a wide array of conditions from aesthetic and cosmetic plastic surgery, to hand surgery , skin cancer and breast reconstruction and even wound care . I continually add and advance new techniques and technologies to my practice of plastic surgery in order to provide the best possible results to my patients. My goals are to provide the safest, highest quality plastic surgery to my patients in order to achieve beautiful and natural results .

Dr. Boynton’s goal with each consultation is to provide each patient with all the information they need to make a well-informed decision as to whether plastic surgery is right for them. Dr. Boynton plans to spend as much time as possible with each and every patient and tries to listen to all of their concerns and answer each and every question. He always makes himself available as well by email to answer follow-up or questions that may arise later and utilizes imaging technologies and information web programs and videos as well to educate his patients about the procedures. We ask that you allow approximately an hour for your consultation visit. To schedule a consultation, you can call our office or visit www.BoyntonPlasticSurgery.com
