No one will know… Everyone will notice.

Dr. Judith Gurley brings surgical precision, artistic vision, and unparalleled compassion to her work as a Female Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

After attending medical school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dr. Gurley completed her general and plastic surgery residency at the University of Chicago. During her fellowship at Washington University St. Louis, she focused intensely on procedures involving the face, cleft lip and palate surgery, and surgeries of the jaw, orbit, and skull. Her experience with the most delicate patients influences the approach she takes to the adults and adolescents she now sees in her private practice.

While practicing as an Assistant Professor of Surgery at Washington University caring for adults and children, she was passionate about adolescent plastic surgery and advocated for surgical procedures for teenagers. There she saw firsthand the huge psychological impact plastic surgery can have on a patient’s well-being and sense of self.

Currently, Dr. Gurley in her boutique solo private practice office in Chesterfield, MO brings her love of art and science and more than 25 years of surgical, facial injection and laser/medical spa experience to men and women in the St. Louis and surrounding areas.

Dr. Gurley’s online presence is impressive with a highly informational website, educational blogs, real life videos and regular social media postings on Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and YouTube. What patients and physicians are most impressed by however and what Dr. Gurley is most proud of is her extensive Before & After Gallery. Dr. Gurley feels a before and after gallery helps patients appreciate her experience, her ability, and her eye for beauty, and it also gives patients the opportunity to self identify and envision their outcome.

Together, the collaboration established between the patient and Dr. Gurley is what ensures a great outcome and leads to an improved self-confidence, happiness, and peace.
