Dr. Russell Kridel, MD
As a world-renowned facial plastic surgeon for more than 25 years, Russell Kridel, M.D., is recognized as one of the country's top surgeons by both his peers and his patients. He is often referred to as "The Doctors' Doctor." Triple board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the American Academy of Otolaryngology, Head & Neck Surgery, and the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Kridel is consistently named among the numerous Top Doc lists, including the acclaimed Castle Connolly Top Doctors, an accomplishment achieved by roughly only 2% of physicians. Dr. Kridel specializes in procedures for the face and neck, exclusively. He has pioneered surgical techniques for rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, facelift and septal perforation that are now taught in medical schools across the country. Regarded as "the" leading expert in facial plastic surgery, patients, including physicians and their family members, come from all over the world to have Dr. Kridel perform their surgery. He is the most noted, of only a few specialists, in the U.S. with an extremely high success rate for complex septal perforation surgery. Dr. Kridel also has extensive experience performing many other cosmetic procedures such as otoplasty, eyelid surgery, CO2 laser resurfacing, hair restoration, and other leading-edge, non-surgical treatments. Dr. Kridel understands that patients need individualized care based on their goals and expectations to achieve the most natural results. Through his extensive experience and outstanding surgical skills, Dr. Kridel leads his patients through this highly personal process of rejuvenation, whether it is a minimally invasive treatment or a complete cosmetic transformation. Dr. Kridel has published more than 100 scientific journal articles and book chapters on facial plastic surgery techniques, many of which he pioneered and are now taught in medical schools. His unparalleled surgical expertise and compassion puts his patients at ease so they can embark on their surgical journey with confidence. Always an activist for excellence in health care delivery, Dr. Kridel believes better health care for patients comes, in part, from physicians' dedication to developing medical advancements at all levels. Elected by surgeons from his own specialty, as well as, physicians across all disciplines, to numerous leadership positions, Dr. Kridel has served as President of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, President of the Texas Medical Association Foundation, and President for the Harris County Medical Society. In 2014, Dr. Kridel was elected to the American Medical Association Board of Trustees and continues to serve in this capacity.

Houston, TX |
I want people to be very careful about the Dr. they choose. This Dr. does not have certification through american board of plastic surgery. I drove from out of town and spent $200 on the consultation, which is more than other offices. I spent more time with his staff than him and I felt rushed. They quoted me a price and made it seem like they were doing me a favor by taking off $5000 but still quoted me $10000 for his services plus $5000 for hospital, a total of $15000. That was just the estim

I'm thrilled; it's even better than I expected! The results are subtle to everyone else, but make a big difference to me (which I think is what most people want from plastic surgery)! The doctor(s) and staff were incredibly friendly, thorough, and caring. I would highly recommend this office to anyone thinking of having a facial cosmetic procedure!
