Meet Dr. Hayes

David M. Hayes, MD, FACS

Montana Center for Facial Plastic Surgery - Dr. Hayes - Facial Cosmetic Surgeon in Missoula, MT

“I knew I wanted to be a doctor when I was in the fourth grade. I have always been good with my hands and I strive for perfection, so cosmetic facial surgery is a perfect fit. My philosophy is to achieve a natural-looking result with every surgery and procedure – I believe less can be more. I also think the goal of cosmetic surgery is to help patients look like younger, more attractive versions of themselves."

“This is a very creative field that blends art and science. I love the fact that it is primarily elective – patients come to you not because they have to but because they want to make a positive change. It’s very rewarding to see the gratitude in someone’s eyes when you’ve been able to fulfill their expectations and improve their self-image.”

With five years of facial anatomy training to his credit, he offers patients a level of expertise that is rare in his field. His artistic eye allows him to provide his patients with exceptional surgical outcomes and beautiful, natural-looking results.
