Home / People / Best Cosmetic Surgeon / Scott Runnels (The Runnels Center)


Dr. Scott Runnels had a love of art and science, and while in medical school, he began to see cosmetic surgery as a way to combine those two paths.

“Even as child, I remember having an appreciation for people’s perspectives, and I think art gives a person an opportunity to express their perspective,” he says on the Runnels Center website. “Plastic surgery seemed to me the best combination in medicine of the sciences and arts.”

He graduated from Mississippi College with a bachelor’s degree in biology in 1988 and then from medical school at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in 1993. He finished his general surgery and plastic surgery training at the University of Tennessee. He began practicing in Jackson in 1998 and then opened The Runnels Center in 2005. His specialties include aesthetic and cosmetic surgeries for the body, breast and the face.
