Louis M. DeJoseph, MD
Louis M. DeJoseph, M.D. joined Premier Image Cosmetic & Laser Surgery in September of 2002 bringing with him the credentials, experience, and specialty training in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. DeJoseph's well sought after talents and exceptional medical skills were not over looked by any means as he was soon asked to become a full partner in the practice.
I believe relationships are important. Many people find cosmetic surgery to be the right choice for them. However, there is a process in learning about procedures and the choices are very personal. I strive to provide the information necessary in a comfortable and relaxed environment so that my patient can be candid with questions and expressing their desires.
My goal is to establish a trusting relationship from the start allowing for better communication and better results. I feel that by helping patients feel good about themselves, I am improving their quality of life.
|Why I became a plastic surgeon|
Having grown up in a family of medical doctors, DeJoseph never thought twice about his decision to study medicine. His father, a renowned cardiologist, took his young son on many rounds at the hospital and to his office. DeJoseph grew up not with a silver spoon, but with a stethoscope in hand. He would later fulfill his own dreams of becoming a highly respected and well sought after doctor of facial plastic surgery.
Dr. DeJoseph received his undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology, graduating Cum Laude in his competitive class at King's College. Subsequently he received his doctorate of medicine from the College of Medicine at Penn State. Dr. DeJoseph completed his residency in Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio and was one of only 38 surgeons selected worldwide to undergo further specialty training in facial plastic & reconstructive surgery in affiliation with Emory University here in Atlanta, Georgia.
|Choosing the right Plastic Surgeon|

Dr. DeJoseph is highly recognized by his peers and is very active in developing the latest, most advanced techniques in facial plastic surgery. More recently, DeJoseph was interviewed by Fox 5 and 11 Alive News stations on the development of the new low downtime QT Mini Facelift.
Dr. Louis DeJoseph along with Dr. William Silver at Premier Image Cosmetic Surgery recognized the need for a scaled down facelift for people on the go or individuals not quite ready for a full facelift. The QT Mini Facelift has allowed the individuals with little flexibility for down time the ability to return to work in 3 or 5 days. The QT Mini Facelift can be performed under local anesthesia and oral medications. Because smaller and fewer incisions are made, bruising and swelling are greatly reduced. DeJoseph prides himself on meeting the needs of others and recognizing the need for change in an advanced and competitive society.
