Dr O’Daniel’s first involvement was a segment titled, “Matching the Optimal Facelift Technique with the Patient’s Aesthetic Goals.” A facelift is one of the procedures Dr. O’Daniel has a vast amount of experience performing; therefore, he was able to share his knowledge on the intricacies of the surgery with the other surgeons in attendance, and Dr. O’Daniel’s skills were showcased when he performed a Live Facelift while at the event.

Named one of Louisville Magazine’s 2019 Top Doctors in Plastic Surgery, Dr. O’Daniel combines “…his love of fine arts to help people look their best by merging his inherent understanding of proportion, harmony and balance with his near unparalleled medical expertise.” https://voice-tribune.com/_/news/business/business-profile/dr-t-gerald-odaniel-a-cut-above-the-rest/

According to Louisville Magazine, “The results of our “Top Surgeons” survey comes right from the most knowledgeable source of all — the doctors themselves. To rate the surgeons, we mailed questionnaires to the 2,000-plus members of the Greater Louisville Medical Society. The survey asked: “If you or a member of your family were in need of surgery, who among Louisville-area physicians would you choose or recommend most highly to perform the following procedures?All doctors listed on these pages received multiple mentions from their peers…” https://www.louisville.com/top-doctors-2019

When asked about his lifelong vision to provide the very best, most innovative medical plastic surgery services available, Dr. O’Daniel emphasized, “Now that I have been practicing plastic surgery for 30 years, I feel I bring a rich store of life knowledge, wisdom and judgment to my patients. My accumulative understanding of the impact time and life have on the human face and body now put me at the zenith of my career to provide unmatched analysis and restoration of the human form and function. I feel the ultimate expression of plastic surgery is art informed by science…it is now obvious learning after education is what separates the very best of any discipline. Education is what people do to you. Learning is what we do to ourselves. I continue this educational process through my endeavors as an educator at both national and international plastic surgical meetings as an invited speaker to share my experiences…My experience allows me to restore and improve a person’s perception of him- or herself such that we empower people by making them feel beautiful about themselves…The anchor of my approach has always been to provide quality in everything we do with the utmost integrity. The highest compliment we receive is the trust and confidence our clients have in us.”
