Founded in 1970 by Paul Gwyn, M.D., Forsyth Plastic Surgery is the oldest and most established group of plastic surgeons in the Piedmont Triad. Offering the latest techniques in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, our doctors will make you feel comfortable and confident with your decision to undergo plastic surgery. In addition, most procedures can safely be done in our own state-of-the-art outpatient surgical center, the Plastic Surgery Center of North Carolina.

When you meet with one of our fully trained and board certified plastic surgeons, a problem-specific exam will be performed and your questions will be answered. Videos and brochures will be available to help explain most of the procedures, including breast augmentation, liposuction, abdominoplasty, and facial rejuvenation. Our staff of experienced registered nurses assists the doctors with both the pre- and postoperative care of our patients.

In 2019, Forsyth Plastic Surgery opened The VISTA, a state-of-the-art aesthetic center, after a $2.5 million expansion. The VISTA is now where all of our non-surgical procedures are treatments are performed in a gorgeous, light-filled space. The VISTA has its own website: www.thevistanc.com

Our Philosophy

Our goal is always to provide the best care for our patients. To do this requires a broad background in the art of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, as well as a commitment to the process of continuing education. By frequently evaluating new procedures and comparing them with “tried and true” ones, our surgeons are able to provide our patients with what is best for their particular problem or desire. You will not be talked into a procedure that is wrong or dangerous for you.

Each patient is treated as the unique person he or she is, and communication between the patient and physician is paramount. Consultation among the surgeons within our practice is available for particularly difficult problems.


Our goal is for you to be completely satisfied. No matter what procedure you choose, we will strive for the best result possible. Every surgical procedure, however, has inherent risks and potential complications. Possible complications include bleeding, infection, swelling and poor wound healing which can lead to undesirable scarring. Occasionally a minor touch-up is necessary. We are the first group in the area to enroll all our cosmetic surgery patients in CosmetAssure, an insurance program that protects against medical complication after surgery.

Your surgeon will discuss with you before surgery the potential complications and answer all of your questions completely. We do this not to alarm patients, but to ensure that our patients are accurately informed about the surgical procedure.
