Dr. Steckler’s Story
A native of Natchez, Mississippi, Dr. David Steckler grew up on a family farm along with eight siblings. The Steckler children spent most of their days hunting and fishing with their father, a Pathologist. His father instilled in him a love of land, helping others, and most importantly, medicine.
After graduating from Millsaps College, he received his MD from the University of Mississippi and completed post-graduate training in General Surgery from UMMC. He completed a Plastic Surgery Fellowship at University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Dr. Steckler and his wife, Susan, have five children and are active members of St. Richard Catholic Church and St. Richard Catholic School. They travel back to their family land in Natchez to hunt and fish as often as they can.
The Mississippi Center for Plastic Surgery opened in April 2015, taking Dr. Steckler’s practice in a new direction. He is currently the only Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Madison County. The Center offers a more personal approach to the needs of clients. Our goal is achieve natural-looking results for cosmetic patients in order for them to feel good in their own skin. It is Dr. Steckler’s belief that a subtle approach to Plastic Surgery is beneficial to clients and leads to more satisfactory results.
Aside from cosmetic procedures, Dr. Steckler receives great satisfaction from clients with melanoma or undergoing reconstruction, especially breast reconstruction. Helping someone look and feel whole again after battling cancer is very rewarding. Dr. Steckler lost a sister to cancer 8 years ago, and he knows how this disease can devastate a family personally. For him, it is a blessing to be able to play a small part in helping someone feel normal again after beating breast cancer.
Dr. Steckler maintains a number of professional memberships in addition to his Board Certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
- American Society of Plastic Surgeons
- Southeastern Society of Plastic Reconstructive Surgeons
