About

doctor

DAN H. SHELL IV, M.D., FACS

Oxford Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

As a native Mississippian and a University of Mississippi graduate, the opportunity to start a plastic surgery practice has been a dream come true for Dr. Shell. During his general surgery training at The University of Tennessee in Memphis and plastic surgery training at The University of Alabama in Birmingham, Dr. Shell recognized the unmet need for plastic and reconstructive surgery in North Mississippi.  Dr. Shell is in private practice in Oxford.

Dr. Shell is certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, a member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

Dr. Shell provides a variety of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures to patients. The most common cosmetic procedures include; but are not limited to, breast surgery (reduction, reconstruction, augmentation and lift), body contouring (tummy tuck and liposuction), facial rejuvenation (surgical and nonsurgical), wound management and skin cancer treatment. Nonsurgical facial procedures such as Botox, Dysport and dermal fillers have become increasingly popular as patients seek less expensive alternatives with minimal downtime. Dr. Shell is currently on active staff at Baptist North Mississippi. At Shell Plastic Surgery, we strive to listen carefully to be sure that all treatments are customized to meet your goals. The latest technology is offered in a comfortable and confidential setting. We look forward to meeting you.

3D Photographic Simulation Brings a New Dimension to Plastic Surgery at Shell Plastic Surgery.

Vectra 3D imaging has revolutionized the way plastic surgeons perform a consultation. Moving beyond traditional photography to a 3-dimensional view allows you and your surgeon to get an extremely accurate picture of the expected results that can be achieved. With this technology, we can see the expected results from multiple angles, as if you were looking at them in person or in the mirror.
