Meet Dr. Shagets
Dr. Shagets has a long history of success. A Joplin native, he attended the United States Air Force Academy where he finished in the top 10 percent of his class. Dr. Shagets later received his medical degree from the St. Louis School of Medicine, followed by a residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and a fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Iowa. The doctor's decades of experience and education allow him to provide high quality, state-of-the-art medical care and facial plastic surgery to each patient in a safe, comfortable, and cost-effective manner.
Most insurance companies do not contribute to elective cosmetic surgeries, which is why we offer CareCredit®, Prosper Financing, and Alphaeon Credit. These third-party companies offer low monthly payments and low-interest rates, so you can achieve your treatment goals without putting too much stress on your budget.

“My results are fantastic. Dr. Shagets is a profectionist, which I love. He is very gentle and thorough. He even came in on a Saturday to check out a concern I had... it was only a stitch! I would highly recommend Dr. Shagets.” P.H. - verified patient
