Meet Matthew Kienstra, MD

Named one of the best doctors in America, facial plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Kienstra has specialized in helping patients of all ages achieve a more refined and youthful appearance for nearly 20 years. With his extensive training in all aspects of facial enhancement combined with his guiding philosophy—if it doesn’t look natural, it doesn’t look good—he provides results uniquely tailored to each patient.

Dr. Kienstra provides everything from facelifts (SmartLaser Lift), rhinoplasty, eyelid procedures, and forehead lifts, to non-surgical facial rejuvenation, such as laser procedures, Botox, fillers, and injectables. “By balancing minimally invasive techniques with more traditional ones,” he says, “we’re able to achieve natural-looking, personalized results.”

Dr. Kienstra’s specialization exclusively in the face gives patients peace of mind, while his friendly, easygoing style promotes a comfortable physician-patient partnership. He encourages patients to ask questions, empowering them to make decisions with confidence.

Dr. Kienstra is board certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and otolaryngology (head and neck surgery). He completed a prestigious internship and residency at Mayo Clinic and a fellowship at the University of Michigan. For over eight years, Dr. Kienstra practiced alongside now retired facial plastic surgeon Dr. Keith LaFerriere, whose patients have since made the easy transition into his care. Dr. Kienstra currently serves as the Director of Facial Trauma at Mercy Hospital. His private surgical suite is accredited by the AAAHC.
