Joseph Spaniol, MD

Join us in welcoming our newest addition to the Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Joseph Spaniol!

A Kansas City native and University of Kansas School of Medicine graduate, Dr. Spaniol comes to us from Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia with his wife and four young children.

Dr. Spaniol has completed a full residency in General Surgery, and he was trained in an academic setting as well as the private medical setting. He says working in both settings gave him plastic surgery training in the best of both worlds. This also allowed him to learn the newest techniques in the field of aesthetics as well as reconstructive surgery. His breadth of plastic surgery experience makes him an expert in multiple areas.

Dr. Spaniol was first drawn to plastic surgery because of the diversity it offered. Dr. Spaniol provides the full gamut of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery including surgery of the face, breast, and body. Patients can see Dr. Spaniol for their facial aesthetics needs such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, neck lifts, and FaceTite. He offers the full range of breast and body aesthetics including breast augmentation, mommy makeover, Orbera, BodyTite, SmartLipo, and liposuction.

He is excited to join the longest standing private plastic surgery practice in Kansas. Dr. Spaniol says everyone at the Plastic Surgery Center is so welcoming. "There is such a sense of family here, and I could not be more excited to make it my home!"

Dr. Spaniol is now taking patients in all areas of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.
