Our Founder

In Memoriam (1941-2023)

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. Dr. Smith relocated Faces to the Township at Colony Park in Ridgeland in 2008, where it continues to grow.

About Dr. Smith

Dr. Smith spent most of his life as a pioneer of facial plastic surgery in Mississippi. He was an innovator in medical skin care for sun-damaged and aging skin throughout his entire career. He was proud to have been the first board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Mississippi.

Dr. Smith was always passionate about using the latest advancements in cosmetic surgery to offer his patients minimally invasive, office-based procedures such as laser liposuction and cosmetic injectables. His emphasis, over many years and with thousands of patients, was always to achieve a natural, unoperated look under the safest conditions for the patient.

 Dr. Smith was a member of the clinical teaching staff at the University of Mississippi Medical Center and a contributing editor of a popular consumer’s guide to facial plastic surgery called “The Face Book.”
