About Us – Minneapolis Plastic Surgery, Ltd.
As one of the most-respected and longest-existing aesthetic plastic surgery practices in the Minneapolis / St. Paul, Minnesota area, Minneapolis Plastic Surgery, Ltd. has improved the body image and quality of life of thousands of patients since its inception. Our American Board of Plastic Surgery-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Richard H.Tholen and Dr. Douglas L. Gervais have over 55 years of combined experience performing plastic surgery of the face, breast, and body. Both have been peer-recognized as regional “Top Doctors” by Minneapolis / St. Paul Magazine for multiple years. We now are proud to announce the addition of a third plastic surgeon, Dr. Kuldeep Singh, to our staff. His plastic surgical training at the Mayo Clinic, followed by additional cosmetic surgical fellowships in California and overseas will bring innovation and new ideas to Minneapolis Plastic Surgery. All three surgeons’ goal is to always produce the most natural-looking results rather than a “tight,” unnatural, or operated-on appearance.
Accredited in-office Surgical Facility
Minneapolis Plastic Surgery, Ltd. features an on-site nationally-accredited (QUAD A, formerly AAAASF) surgical center with complete local-to-general anesthesia services. As one of few plastic surgical practices that offer this level of care, our cosmetic surgery patients can receive state-of-the-art outpatient surgery safely and privately in our own dedicated facility, rather than in a hospital or hospital-affiliated surgicenter surrounded by sick patients and nasty viruses or bacteria!
It is the sincere goal of the surgeons and staff at Minneapolis Plastic Surgery, LTD. to provide for our patients the highest-quality plastic surgery experience and most pleasing natural results. To achieve this goal we will abide by the highest professional standards and truthfully represent our capabilities. We will thoroughly inform our patients and scrupulously guard their confidentiality.
We seek to enhance, restore, and refine the natural beauty that every patient already possesses by the creative and skillful application of advanced, but proven, techniques. No surgeon who is honest can guarantee perfect results every time, but we promise that we will strive to provide the best care, effort, and outcomes we are capable of. No one will try harder to surpass your expectations, anywhere.
At Minneapolis Plastic Surgery, LTD. we want to provide our patients with a lasting positive experience that makes them “patients for life,” as well as making us worthy of their recommendation to others.
Reconstructive Surgery (and a Brief History of MPS)
Both Dr. Gervais and Dr. Tholen have completed full, five-year residencies in General Surgery after their M.D. degrees, and both were certified by the American Board of Surgery after successfully completing both written and oral examinations. They both followed with an additional two years of sub-specialty training in plastic and reconstructive surgery, and both were certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery after rigorous written and oral examinations in this sub-specialty. Dr. Singh completed a six-year integrated plastic surgery fellowship at the Mayo Clinic after medical school, is Board-eligible in Plastic Surgery, and has completed additional cosmetic surgery fellowships since his time at Mayo, both nationally and internationally, joining MPS in 2023.
With over five decades of combined experience since joining Minneapolis Plastic Surgery (Dr. Tholen in 1987, Dr. Gervais in 1996, and Dr. Singh in 2023), all three plastic surgeons bring extensive training in all aspects of anatomy, physiology, and the specifics of surgical expertise to bear on the most difficult reconstructive and challenging cosmetic surgical problems. However, Minneapolis Plastic Surgery has always been a leader in aesthetic (cosmetic) plastic surgery, often first in introducing advanced new techniques and innovations to other plastic surgeons in the upper Midwest and throughout the country. With the addition of Dr. Singh, MPS has now enhanced their extensive experience with an infusion of new ideas and capabilities.
