SOUTHLAKE, Texas, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Local plastic surgeon Dr. Jon Ver Halen has joined the prestigious ranks of RealSelf's Top Doctors, a designation awarded to fewer than 10% of surgeons registered with the popular plastic surgery community website.
For a surgeon to achieve the coveted "Top Doctor" title, they must demonstrate an ongoing commitment to patient education by answering consumer questions and must also receive high ratings and positive reviews from their own patients. Dr. Ver Halen meets these criteria with flying colors; he has a five-star patient review rating and a quickly growing collection of consumer questions answered.
After deciding to pursue a plastic surgery career, Dr. Ver Halen performed his residency at the University of Washington, receiving instruction from some of the most skilled and experienced surgeons in breast, body, and facial plastic surgery.
Dr. Ver Halen was profoundly moved by his experiences with women undergoing surgery for breast cancer and developed a passion for helping patients who choose to have plastic surgery to repair damage that disease has done to their bodies. With additional training and a position as a Clinical Specialist at the Houston, Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, he built on his extensive surgical training to better help people who choose plastic surgery for reconstructive or aesthetic purposes.
Having become known both nationally and internationally as a skilled, insightful, and creative surgeon, Dr. Ver Halen holds a number of editorial positions in peer-reviewed medical journals and regularly attends and speaks at plastic surgical meetings. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, he's also an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, serving as co-chair of the Development Committee amongst other leadership roles.
Dr. Ver Halen is now based in Tarrant County, Texas, where he uses his training and skills as a plastic surgeon in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, helping patients achieve their body goals with advanced techniques and tools such as fat grafting and 3D modeling. Dr. Ver Halen is available for one-on-one consultations at North Texas Plastic Surgery in Southlake and Plano.
