GUEST – Dr. Jonathan Kaplan

Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, a board-certified plastic surgeon, currently resides in San Francisco, where he has established himself as a prominent figure in the field of plastic surgery. His journey into the world of plastic surgery began at the age of 16 when he witnessed a plastic surgeon in his hometown skillfully address a skin cancer removal case. The surgeon’s ability to creatively use a skin graft from the patient’s neck crease to close a sizable wound left a profound impact on Dr. Kaplan, igniting his passion for the field.

After completing his plastic surgery fellowship at the renowned Cleveland Clinic, where he was trained by the same team responsible for the first US face transplant, Dr. Kaplan practiced in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for six years. During this time, he built a thriving cosmetic practice that encompassed a broad spectrum of procedures, ranging from facial and body cosmetic surgery to cosmetic medicine, including the use of injectables like Botox and fillers. His association with his brother-in-law, Dr. Mark Hausmann, a weight loss surgeon, also provided him with expertise in body contouring post-massive weight loss.

Dr. Kaplan’s commitment to transparency and patient-centered care led to BuildMyBod Health, a groundbreaking platform. It allows patients to obtain itemized estimates for various medical procedures, eliminating the common “sticker shock” often associated with plastic surgery consultations. This innovative tool connects patients with doctors and empowers them with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their healthcare. Dr. Jonathan Kaplan’s dedication to accessible, informed healthcare exemplifies his unwavering commitment to improving the patient experience in plastic surgery.
