Dr. J. Randall Jordan, Double Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon near Jackson, MS
The facial plastic surgeon you choose is important if you want to achieve the best results and have a comfortable experience. Patients who choose a board-certified facial plastic surgeon can rest assured that their procedure will be performed to the highest standard of care.
Although any practicing physician can legally perform cosmetic surgery, those certified by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery must undergo extensive training. They must also pass rigorous examinations to demonstrate their mastery of the field.
At Faces in Ridgeland, MS, we’d like to introduce you to Dr. J. Randall Jordan, one of our double board-certified facial plastic surgeons who is dedicated to patient satisfaction and has a passion for educating others.
Why Dr. Jordan Chose Medicine and Facial Plastic Surgery
Dr. Jordan knew he wanted to get into medicine early in his life. His family includes a long line of physicians, but what really drew him to medicine was the intersection of technology and science, and the many opportunities to help others. To Dr. Jordan, surgery seemed like an obvious fit.
What initially attracted Dr. Jordan to facial plastic surgery were the technical challenges of reconstruction he encountered while completing his residency, and later, during his fellowship, the finesse and skill required for a successful cosmetic outcome. One of the best rewards you could ever hope for in any profession is helping someone feel better about themselves, and Dr. Jordan felt he could do that whether by restoring beauty to an aging face with a facelift, achieving better facial harmony with a rhinoplasty, or helping a child avoid teasing through otoplasty. He considers it a privilege to perform facial plastic surgery as his lifelong career.
More About Dr. Jordan

Most of his work at UMC is focused on reconstructive plastic surgery of the head and neck.
One of Dr. Jordan’s greatest passions in life is teaching others, which also has the added benefit of keeping him continuously learning about the latest advancements in surgery and medicine.
The core of Dr. Jordan’s philosophy is that we should begin each of our days with the intent to improve what we do, and we should strive to learn something new each and every day.

Dr. Jordan is married and has two college-aged children, both of whom have their own interesting and exciting lives. He and his wife, Allison, live in Madison, MS with their miniature dachshund. When he is not at the office or hospital, Dr. Jordan loves to work in the yard, travel both in the US and abroad, take advantage of the plentiful outdoor activities in our beautiful region, and go saltwater fishing and bird hunting.

What to Expect When You Meet With Dr. Jordan
Dr. Jordan believes the best decisions are informed decisions. Once you’ve discussed your concerns and shared your wishes, he’ll review your medical and surgical history. After a thorough evaluation of your facial features, he will lay out all your options for improvement. He’ll begin with the non-surgical options and then discuss the surgical ones, listing the advantages and disadvantages of each approach. His primary objective is to help you make the best decision possible towards achieving your aesthetic goals. In some instances, particularly for a Rhinoplasty consultation, computer imaging may be used to better visualize the possible changes. Be assured that Dr. Jordan will never suggest a surgery you don’t need, nor talk you into a procedure you don’t want. The decision is yours. During your consultation you will also have the opportunity to meet with a patient care coordinator who will provide you with detailed financial information concerning the proposed treatment plan.
