Click here to learn more about our staff

dr. mark craigI would like to introduce myself and explain my philosophy with regard to my practice.  I am Dr. Mark H. Craig.   I have been practicing plastic surgery in Tupelo, MS since 1997.  I am a board certified plastic surgeon and a member of the American Board of Plastic Surgery.  I have previously served on the Board of Directors of South Eastern Plastic Surgery.

My practice includes not only cosmetic surgery and non-invasive cosmetic procedures, but also reconstructive and hand surgeries.  In addition, I truly believe that skin care is a very important part of maintaining one’s appearance.  It is for this reason that we have a full range of skin care products and services administered by trained staff which I personally medically supervise.  You will find a portion of this website is dedicated to skin care.  Please take time to learn what we have to offer.

While cosmetic surgery is an exciting and rewarding experience which can provide very positive changes in your life, it is not something to be taken lightly.  Even though I do surgery everyday,  it never becomes routine to me.  Every patient is an individual having different needs and desires.  In my practice,  I always evaluate each patient individually and assess their personal situation to be sure that we provide the best possible care and are able to achieve the best possible results.

You will find that my staff is a very important part of the service we offer you.  They were chosen by me and are well trained with respect to their duties.  I believe they offer the perfect combination of compassion and professionalism.

I hope this web site will help you become more familiar with all of the options that are available to you.  Please know that our door is always open, and someone is always willing to talk with you regarding the procedures and products we offer.  Do not ever hesitate to call or email.
