• About Dr Verret

  • Dr. Daniel Joseph “D.J.” Verret was born and raised in the heart of Cajun country, Lafayette, LA. He attended Tulane University where he earned a degree in biomedical engineering with honors. He went on to attend the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School at Dallas for both his medical degree and residency training. For further refinement of his skills, he applied for and was awarded one of only 38 nationwide one year fellowships through the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. After living in the Dallas Metroplex for nine years, Dr. Verret became enamored with the area and moved back to Plano to open his practice.


    Dr. Verret continues to stay abreast of the latest innovations in facial plastic surgery through attendance at various local, national, and international facial plastic surgery meetings. He regularly teaches at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and volunteers at various local civic organizations. He has been invited to speak at national and international facial plastic surgery meetings and he has been rewarded with numerous peer reviewed articles and book chapters. Dr. Verret is double board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, the American Board of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery, and fellowship trained in facial plastic surgery.

  • Why Choose Dr. Verret?

    Dr. Verret specializes in rejuvenation of the face. Training for a facial plastic surgeon differs from a plastic surgeon in that facial plastic surgeons spend the majority of their training operating only on the face. Dr. Verret completed one year of general surgery and then, unlike a plastic surgeon, completed a four year residency in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery. Most plastic surgery residents will complete a 3-5 year general surgery residency and then complete a 2 year plastic surgery residency in which they concentrate on all parts of the body, not just the face.

    Dr. Verret went on to refine his skills in cosmetic facial surgery in a one year fellowship through the University of Missouri at Columbia. During that year, he was involved with over 400 cosmetic facial plastic surgery procedures. Building on that experience, during his first year in practice, Dr. Verret performed more than twice the average number of facelifts as most plastic surgeons according to the ASAPS survey and has been growing his practice ever since. He welcomes the opportunity to help you explore possibilities for your own facial rejuvenation. Please call today for an evaluation and learn about the latest innovations in facial plastic surgery.

    Academic Involvement

    Dr. Verret is involved in many aspects of teaching and education. He is invited regularly to teach at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School Otolaryngology Grand Rounds conferences and is appointed as a clinical assistant professor at the University. These conferences are designed to bring in practicing ENT surgeons from the community and teach residents at the University about their specialty. Dr. Verret regularly lectures on facial plastic & reconstructive surgery topics.

    Dr. Verret is also proud of his invitation to be a part of the faculty for the latest American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery fellowships. With less than 40 fellowships nationwide, the AAFPRS facial plastic fellowship teaches the next generation of facial plastic surgeons the craft. Dr. Verret is proud to be a part of the fellowship and is eager to teach the next generation of surgeon the craft he loves.
