Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center

If you’re seriously considering undergoing a cosmetic surgery procedure to improve the look of your face, breast, buttocks, or body, the most important decision you’ll want to make is who will perform your cosmetic surgery? You’ll want a surgeon who’s highly trained, board certified, skilled, and experienced in the type of procedure you’re considering.

Dr. Michael L. Thornton is a fellowship-trained, dual board-certified cosmetic surgeon and a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. Since 2008 and for the past 10-years, patients have traveled from around the country to visit Dr. Thornton at Mansfield Cosmetic Surgery Center, where he provides an extensive array of procedures in facial cosmetic surgery, breast augmentation, breast lift and reduction, body contouring abdominoplasty and liposuction, mommy makeovers, cosmetic surgery for men, buttock augmentation, and non-surgical aesthetic skin rejuvenation from his medical spa. In addition, Dr. Thornton enjoys performing complex revision and reconstructive cosmetic surgery, for those patients who’ve experienced surgical misfortunates.

Extensive Education and Training

Dr. Thornton grew up in Frisco and is a graduate of Baylor University. He completed medical school at UNT Health Science Center in Fort Worth, followed by a comprehensive five-year residency in general surgery in Michigan and fellowship in surgical critical care and trauma surgery at the internationally recognized R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, MD, where he acquired extensive knowledge in the management and reconstruction of complex traumatic injuries.

Following a creative passion for aesthetic surgery, Dr. Thornton’s surgical training ultimately culminated with the completion of a dedicated 12-month fellowship in cosmetic surgery accredited by the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery that focused on facial cosmetic surgery, cosmetic breast surgery, liposuction, body contouring surgery, non-surgical aesthetics, skin care rejuvenation, and laser medicine.

Pioneering Advancing Technology

Dr. Thornton routinely attends yearly national cosmetic surgery meetings and participates in advanced courses to offer his patients the latest techniques in cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Thornton is the immediate past president of the Texas Cosmetic Surgery Society and was recently elected to the Board of Trustees of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS) where has also been an oral-board examiner for the ABCS for the past several years.

Soft spoken, passionate about his work and devoted to his patients, Dr. Thornton’s appreciation for beauty and strong Christian faith are central to his relationship with his patients and his approach to surgery. Dr. Thornton is also a gifted pianist and is newly married to his wife, Raquel. Dr. Thornton’s innate artistry combines seamlessly with his meticulous attention to detail to produce beautiful results for his patients.

Personalized, One-on-One Attention

Dr. Thornton’s caring personality and genuine warmth are reflected in his chair-side manner as he personally enjoys getting to know his patients. Your private consultation is booked for approximately one hour and Dr. Thornton will spend as much time as necessary to establish a comprehensive and thorough physician-patient relationship. This level of personal attention from Dr. Thornton is what defines his surgical practice. Although well qualified, Dr. Thornton chooses not to use a patient coordinator, nurse practitioner, or physician assistant (PA) to perform consultations. In addition, he personally sees every post-operative patient following surgery and actively engages in the healing process to provide the highest physician-level care.
