Meet Dr. Saxon


Dr. Sarah Saxon facial plastic surgeon in Austin and Dallas, TX

Before Dr. Sarah Saxon was a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, she was an artist. Having had formal art classes starting at the young age of 7, she knew her talents and aptitude for portrait drawing would one day be incorporated into her professional life in some way. 

Dr. Saxon was born in North Louisiana, where many of her extended family still live, and then moved to Carthage, Texas. After high school, she went on to Baylor University where she graduated with honors with a double major in Biology and Sociology and a minor in Chemistry. 

Training and Expertise

After graduating from Baylor, she spent over a decade in the most rigorous training in facial plastic surgery which included 4 years of medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, 5 years of residency in Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery at University of New Mexico, and additional fellowship training in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Boston University under the mentorship of world-renowned facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Spiegel. 

In addition, she mastered the nuances of reconstruction of congenital ear anomalies (microtia) with the world expert in the procedure, Dr. Satoru Nagata in Japan.

Dr. Saxon then joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, where she taught residents and offered the full spectrum of both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures in facial plastic surgery including facial trauma at Parkland Memorial Hospital, correction of congenital defects at Children’s Medical Center, as well as functional and aesthetic procedures at UT Southwestern.

About the Practice

Dr. Saxon transitioned from academia to private practice in 2017 where she founded her surgical practice and medical spa in Austin. She is now one of the nation’s few experts in facial feminization surgery, using craniofacial and soft tissue techniques to create a more youthful and feminine appearance. Facial plastic surgeons from across the country seek her expertise in teaching her advanced techniques in hairline lowering and forehead surgery, and she is routinely asked to give lectures and participate in panel discussions at national meetings. 

Dr. Saxon never stops learning and growing as a surgeon. Because of this, she continues to learn from pioneers in facial plastic surgery such as Dr. Mike Nayak in his extended deep plane facelift techniques. No matter how big or small the procedure, she focuses on delivering the very best results for her patients and improving confidence with as little downtime as possible.

The practice quickly outgrew her small downtown Austin office. Because of this, Dr. Saxon has now moved her south office to a brand new, larger space in Southwest Austin which will also soon house a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center. Her satellite office in Dallas also opened several years ago and cares for patients from the DFW area, North Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and North Louisiana. Regardless of where patients are from, Saxon MD sets the standard in personalized care to deliver an exceptional experience.

Our face is the first thing people see. It’s what identifies us — what we show to the world of who we are. I get a lot of gratification from being able to give people more confidence in how they interact with others.
