Our Founder Dr. Smith

Dr. J. George Smith, Founder of Faces, PLLC in Jackson, MS

Dr. Smith began his medical career as an ear, nose, and throat surgeon. With well-established expertise in head and neck surgery and a passion for aesthetic medicine, he opened Faces, PLLC, in 1998 in the Lakeland Medical Building in Jackson, MS. A lot has changed since those early days. What started as a practice with one physician, an LPN, and a receptionist now functions as a full aesthetic medical clinic with one double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, two nurse injectors, three medical aestheticians, and nine additional support personnel.

Dr. Smith relocated Faces to the Township at Colony Park in Ridgeland in 2008, where it continued to grow. Ten years later, Dr. J. Randall Jordan took over the leadership of the business and moved it to our current location. Dr. Smith has retired and is no longer seeing patients, but Dr. Jordan and his staff will be happy to assist you with any of your facial rejuvenation needs, whether surgical or non-surgical.
