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 over a decade ago.
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 and hair restoration.

Why Choose Dr. Verret?
Simple: Training + Experience. Dr. Verret specializes in rejuvenation of the face. Training for a facial plastic surgeon differs from many hair transplant surgeons in that facial plastic surgeons spend the majority of their training operating on the face. A person can become a hair transplant surgeon from any area of training, including non-surgical specialities like family practice or internal medicine. Medical residencies programs in the United States are overseen by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The ACGME does not recognize any training program specifically for hair restoration. Dr. Verret finished a head and neck surgery residency followed by a fellowship in facial plastic & reconstructive surgery during which time he studied hair restoration. With a background in head and neck cosmetic surgery, Dr. Verret has the ability to handle any complication associated with hair restoration as well as ensure that the results you get are natural and lasting as possible. After finishing training, he opened practice and now has over a decade of experience just in facial cosmetic surgery.
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 and is appointed as an assistant clinical professor. He is also part of the faculty for an American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery fellowship. 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.
