Dr. Steven Daines

Doctor Steven Daines is a highly-skilled Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon, with an expert emphasis on the aging face and skin cancer reconstruction.  Dr. Daines offers beautiful results when reconstructing particularly sensitive, localized areas of the face, such as: nasal, cheek, eyelid, lip and ear. 


Dr. Daines is double board certified in Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery and Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. In addition, he is an active participant with SCARS Foundation, an organization dedicated to supporting the continuing professional development of physicians through education, research, and community service.

As a facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Daines is concerned with giving his patients the most sophisticated level of reconstructive care. By working alongside dermatologists, Dr. Daines and his colleagues at SCARS Center ensure that skin cancer patients are given the best treatment options. This is a key component to curing difficult skin cancers and is one of the reasons why referring physicians see such high success rates with patients they have sent to SCARS Center.

By combining advanced Mohs surgery with reconstructions and multi-stage reconstructions, Dr. Daines and his colleagues are able to provide patients with higher cure rates, less chance of recurrence, less chance of scarring, and an increased opportunity for cosmetically desirable outcomes.
