Dr. Kevin Hanz
Plastic and Cosmetic Surgeon
The roads in Dr. Kevin Hanz’s life keep leading to Dallas.
The board certified plastic surgeon is a Northeastern Ohio native who attended Miami University in Oxford, OH. After earning dual degrees in zoology and chemistry, he pursued his medical education at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH, where he fostered an appreciation for the art of plastic surgery.
This passion took him to the prestigious University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center where he completed an integrated residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery. The residency has consistently ranked as the number one training program in the country for plastic surgery. It was here that he and Dr. Parker first met more than15 years ago, going on to work together for four years.
“My education in Dallas provided the opportunity to work with many of the world’s experts in all areas of plastic surgery. Many pioneers in facial aesthetics, body contouring, breast and hand surgery work as both clinical and academic faculty in the department of plastic surgery. The training at UTSW is simply phenomenal.”
During his time in Dallas, Dr. Parker introduced Kevin to his accomplished nurse practitioner, Carla Foley. The two married and headed east to South Carolina where Dr. Hanz established a burgeoning solo practice in Sumter. Performing approximately 1000 surgeries a year in all areas of plastic surgery, Dr. Hanz quickly became a leader in in aesthetic and cosmetic surgery.
