Dr. Jejurikar’s interest in cosmetic surgery began at age 16 when he was introduced to plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas “Tiny” Benson by his father, who had recently undergone facial reconstruction surgery with Dr. Benson at Stonyfield Hospital in Dallas, Texas.” I was so amazed by the results that I wanted to learn more about it,” says Jejurikar, who then began researching facial reconstruction with Drs. Benson and Tom Lakin at Stonyfield Hospital. Within a few months I had an appointment with my pediatrician who recommended that I undergo reconstruction work.” Read more
“After doing some research, I found Dr. Benson’s website and saw his photographs of his patients,” he says. “I had no idea that the work he was doing would be so successful. It was a great experience that I will never forget.” Jacqueline Jejurikar, a professor of plastic surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, has already started her plastic surgery practice in Texas.
“I have been practicing with Drs. Benson and Lakin for over 20 years and feel that they are two of my favorite plastic surgeons,” she says. “They have helped me feel empowered by their knowledge and skill sets.”
“Dr. Jejurikar is an outstanding surgeon who has helped me to understand the importance of understanding my facial anatomy as well as how to achieve my desired results,” says Dr. Lakin, whose practice includes reconstructive surgery for facial hair removal and breast augmentation procedures . . . . “His expertise with reconstruction work is impressive.”
