Who Is Lexington Dr. Gerstle?

Dr. Theo Gerstle is the only Harvard-trained plastic surgeon in Lexington, Kentucky. He is known for his state-of-the-art techniques, which he honed alongside many of the country’s most respected plastic surgeons in Harvard’s Combined Plastic Surgery Residency Program.

Dr. Gerstle attended the United States Military Academy (West Point), majoring in Engineering Management. Gerstle has deep family roots in the Bluegrass, and while he was raised in New York, he has always felt like Kentucky was “his place” and Kentuckians were “his people.” He returned to the area for medical school at the University of Louisville, where he was elected class president every year and honored as the distinguished graduate. He then completed a residency at Harvard and returned to Lexington to open his surgical centers.

Dr. Gerstle views plastic surgery as an art form. He loves using his artistic talents and cutting edge training to exceed patients’ goals for their appearance.

“My best moments in practice come when a patient is able to overcome limitations to their confidence and feel fully comfortable in their appearance. That’s what I love about coming to work every day,” said Dr. Gerstle.

Why Patients Trust Lexington Plastic Surgery for Face Lifts, Breast Augmentation, and more

Lexington Plastic Surgery has earned the following prestigious accreditations for excellence in patient care and surgery:

  • AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care) is widely known as the gold standard for outpatient surgery services. To qualify, Lexington Plastic Surgery had to show excellence in inpatient care. They also had to excel in continuing education to stay at the vanguard of advances in cosmetic surgery.
  • AAAASF (American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities). If you want to ensure the highest degree of safety during your procedure, you should not settle for anything less than an AAAASF-accredited surgeon.

The AAAASF is very difficult to earn. Unlike with other accreditations, there are no partial awards. All recipients must comply 100% with each of the standards governing care environment, policies, facility safety, medical records, personnel, medications, and anesthesia. Accreditation is revoked if practices dip below standards.

The AAAASF is one of the largest and most highly respected American accrediting organizations of its kind.

Breast Augmentation

Deciding on a breast augmentation can be unnerving. It’s not like deciding on a haircut where a few months will fix a bad one; you need to get this right the first time.

Our Lexington, Kentucky breast augmentation team has helped countless patients who are feeling this same apprehension.After all, breast augmentation is one of our most requested procedures. We will listen to your hopes and expectations. Then, we will apply our years of experience to help you decide on the “just right” size based on your lifestyle, body shape and dimensions.

And size isn’t the only consideration. We can help you choose between fat transfer or implants. There’s also the choice between silicone or saline breast implants. Different procedures are best depending on your desired outcome.

We are known for our natural breast shaping. Nobody wants the bolted on look. We’ll make sure that your augmentation complements your contours and looks fantastic-–not fake.

You should feel comfortable and beautiful in everything from a swimsuit to a t-shirt to an evening gown. Whether you have always had small breasts, or they have grown saggy from breastfeeding babies or simply from aging, we can help you achieve your dream breast augmentation in Lexington, KY and never look back.

Neck Lift

Remember when you used to rock those plunging necklines? Or style your hair in updos without a second thought to leaving your neck exposed?  In spite of our best efforts, aging happens, and necks don’t lie.

Maybe too much sun exposure has caused your neck skin to wrinkle. Or maybe it’s the loss of collagen and muscle that caused neck sagging. Extra weight may have left you with a double chin that haunts you in photos. Or maybe your bone structure is such that it never gave you that tightness under the chin to create an elegant neck contour.

Regardless of what is causing your concerns with your neck, our Lexington, Kentucky neck lift team knows exactly how to make it better. We can lift, contour, and sculpt with surgical and non-surgical procedures to give you a taut, youthful looking neck.

Our surgical procedures include a full or partial neck lift and liposuction, depending on your needs. Our non-surgical procedures include Botox for smoothing wrinkles and neck banding, Kybella for dissolving the fat cells that create a double chin, and fillers to plump up saggy, lifeless skin.

Your care starts with an initial consultation with Dr. Gerstle, who is known for state-of-the-art neck lifts in Lexington, KY. After listening to your goals for your appearance, Dr. Gerstle will apply his years of experience with his master artistry to create a plan. Whether it’s a full neck lift or a combination of surgical and non-surgical procedures, he will help you achieve a neck you’ll be proud to show off.

Face Lift

That youthful glowing face that used to light up a room can give way to time and gravity, but it’s not out of reach. Our Lexington, Kentucky face lift team can help you restore it surgically or non-surgically.

It used to be that the main option for facial rejuvenation was a full face lift. This may be the perfect option for you, but we can also talk you through other innovative procedures that Dr. Gerstle mastered during his Harvard residency.

Skin lost its youthful plumpness?  Facial fat grafting in all of the right places can restore that supple fullness. Brows and eyelids sagging?  A brow lift or eyelid surgery can tighten things up. Tired of crow’s feet or too-deep smile lines or forehead wrinkles hijacking your pictures? Non-surgical procedures like Botox and fillers can work brilliantly to tighten and plump your skin.

You may not know what all of your options are, but our Lexington, KY face lift team does. We’ll present you with the best procedures for restoring natural, youthful beauty to your face.

The last thing you want is a too-tight face lift or fillers that distort your features unnaturally. We’re not here to create a whole new “plastic” version of you; we’re here to enhance your features so you can become the most attractive, confident version of yourself.


Cosmetic surgery has opened up a world of procedures to help women look and feel their best. Labiaplasty is one of those procedures that is becoming more popular with each passing year. A sagging or misshapen labia can affect your confidence and your comfort, but it doesn’t have to be this way.

You deserve to wear a swimsuit, lingerie, or leggings without worrying about your labia being too prominent. You deserve to enjoy intimacy without feelings of self-consciousness (or, in some cases, physical pain).

Perhaps you were born with labia folds that are too long or misshapen. Or maybe they have stretched out with age or childbirth. Regardless, a labiaplasty can refine and rejuvenate this part of your body.

Dr. Gerstle is a leader in labiaplasty in Lexington, Kentucky. He will perform a physical examination and talk to you about options for improving the appearance of the labia area. For most people, this will include trimming down the inner folds of the labia (so that they are hidden by the outer folds) and restoring symmetry between the outer folds. Depending on your goals, Dr. Gerstle may also recommend trimming the clitoral hood for improved appearance and enhanced sexual function.

Some people who have labiaplasty also choose to have vaginoplasty, This procedure tightens up the vaginal canal, which can get stretched out during childbirth. This can enhance your sexual experience.

Labiaplasty is a quick procedure, requiring about an hour. You will be able to return home on the day of the surgery and return to work in about a week.
