SMYRNA, GA, April 27, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — K. Keith Jeffords, MD, DDS, has been recognized as a 2023 Castle Connolly Top Doctor — the 13th time he has received the prestigious Top Doctor honor. Only about 7 percent of the nation’s licensed physicians are selected annually as Castle Connolly Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties.
Dr. Jeffords is a board-certified plastic surgeon and the owner of Jeffords Plastic Surgery in Smyrna, Ga., where he has been in private practice since 2002. Dr. Jeffords graduated from South Cobb High School and practices in South Cobb County.
He holds a dental degree from Emory University and a medical degree from Eastern Virginia. As a dual-degree doctor, he has specialty training in oral and maxillofacial surgery from University of Miami and in plastic and reconstructive surgery at University of Pittsburgh — a rare combination of training that fewer than 50 surgeons in the United States can claim.
Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Jeffords performs a variety of the most advanced aesthetic (cosmetic) procedures available for the face and body. He specializes in working with both men and women, with a 50/50 patient balance. This is unique since men comprise just 8 percent of plastic surgery patients.
He has been awarded many honors during his 23-year career. These include receiving a Proclamation from the Georgia House of Representatives for Heroism for saving a man’s life; being named a member of the 14-time Grammy Award-winning Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus (31 years); receiving the 1988 “Marion Luther Award” (Emory University as the outstanding graduate of the university); inclusion in Madison Media’s “Best Plastic Surgeons in America” for 11 years; receiving a Wellstar “Doctor of the Year” Award; and over 50 other awards and recognitions from colleges and organizations.
Dr. Jeffords has been published in over 20 newspapers, journals, and books. He has lectured 11 times at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Annual Meeting and was a featured speaker at the 2018 Aesthetica Meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
He has given over 80 lectures at both medical and dental meetings since 2000 and has been a guest speaker at four plastic surgery residency programs. He has been on many television programs and news outlets including Montel Williams Show, Discovery Health Channel, CNN, Entertainment Tonight, People Magazine, and many local Atlanta television news and magazines.
