As a result of his years of training, Dr. Morrissey is board certified in Plastic Surgery and Reconstructive Surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). The goal of the American Board of Plastic Surgery is to promote safe plastic surgery practices and maintain high standards of patient care.
He currently works alongside Dr. Robert Wilcox, a seasoned gynecomastia surgeon who is renowned for leaving minimal chest scarring after the surgery. Dr. Morrissey and Dr. Wilcox opened their 11,000 square foot facility to create two surgical suites that meet stringent federal standards. Located in Plano, TX, the physicians, licensed pharmacists, and nurses at the Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas have access to state-of-the-art equipment and high-quality air filtration and sterilization standards for their procedures. Dr. Morrissey believes that every patient should feel completely comfortable with their medical environment, and maintains a state-licensed practice that complies with all Texas Department of Health standards.
At the Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas, Dr. Morrissey has performed hundreds of plastic surgeries and reconstructive surgeries. The practice is one of only three in the area that performs gynecomastia surgery (male breast reduction), which is Dr. Wilcox’s specialty – he has performed over 1,000 of these surgeries. The duo also provides skincare alongside a wide range of cosmetic surgeries and reconstructive surgeries.
Dr. Morrissey values aesthetics in all aspects of his work, and loves to see people who are thrilled with their results and feel confident in their looks. Generally, he performs reconstructive surgeries and cosmetic surgeries for the face and body. This includes his specialties: breast enhancements, tummy tucks, liposuction, and “mommy makeovers.” Dr. Morrissey also performs surgery at the Presbyterian Hospital of Plano, and Methodist Dallas Medical Center.
To remain abreast of developments in the field, he is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Dallas Medical Society, and the Texas Society of Plastic Surgeons.
