Dr. Truesdale is the Surgeon of Choice for All Skin Tones

Dr. Truesdale hasn’t just studied diverse perspectives in beauty standards — he’s lived all over the U.S., and has practiced in the U.S. and Ghana. As one of very few African American facial plastic surgeons, he brings his own background to bear when he approaches a patient consultation. Diversity in his practice is one of his core tenents.

What is considered the “gold standard” for a facial feature is not always the goal for every patient. Dr. Truesdale has a nuanced understanding of facial proportions and cultural beauty standards that you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll notice a wide array of skin tones, body types, ages, and backgrounds of the patients in his before and afters. He is proud to serve a diverse patient population, and to optimize the unique beauty of each and every patient.
