Meet Nashville Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Hueneke

Plastic Surgeon in Nashville, TN“My goal is to educate my patients during the consultation. A great deal of time is given to cosmetic surgery questions, and I do not persuade individuals to have surgery. I am BOARD CERTIFIED by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. I will also answer any questions by Send Mail.”

Dr. Hueneke lives in west Nashville with his wife, Martha and their two children; taking advantage of the family-oriented quality of life that the area offers. As a matter of fact, Dr. Hueneke has been living and working in Nashville for nearly two decades. After graduating from Vanderbilt University, he decided to stay local, develop his plastic surgery practice, and immerse himself in the community. Dr. Hueneke appreciates the beauty of Nashville and its wonderful people and reciprocates that feeling with his unprecedented personalized care.  Dr. Hueneke offers his patients straight-forward and insightful consultations, and calls patients the evening after their procedure to check on them and see if there is anything further he can do for them.

When not performing cosmetic surgery, he enjoys golfing, sailing, and music.

Care Philosophy

Many doctors and patients don’t realize who plastic surgeons are and exactly what we do. A plastic surgeon is someone who has completed a residency in plastic surgery and is recognized by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

There are numerous doctors who claim to be plastic surgeons but really do not have the same degree of expertise. A good comparison would be asking a carpenter to rewire your dining room. He could probably do it but would not be the most qualified person for the job.

In a nutshell, if you can see it on your body, we are the right doctor for you. We take care of almost everything on the skin and the tissue beneath the skin to give it shape. This involves bone, muscle, fat, blood vessels, and nerves.

Changing the way one looks can be a simple alteration, but sometimes, especially after an injury, we have to start from scratch to reconstruct a person’s features.

Medical Spa in Nashville, TN

Medical spa

We start to develop fine lines and wrinkles as we age. Too much exposure to the sun can lead to dark spots or blemishes on the face, and pollutants in the air may also give the skin a dull appearance. A combination of medical and spa procedures can eliminate these and other conditions so that you can look your best without having to undergo surgery.
