reconstructive surgery since 1991. Dr. Richardson is a native to the
Magnolia state, born in Jackson and raised in the Delta town of Drew and
is a second generation physician in Mississippi. In fact, Dr. Richardson’s
early exposure to the medical profession influenced him as a young man
to pursue a medical career himself. In pursuit then of his dreams, he
attended Delta State University and was the 1981 Suma Cum Laude
graduate with a degree in Biology. He received his medical training
thereafter at the University of Mississippi graduating in 1985. Upon his
graduation he trained in the field of surgery at the University of Mississippi
and it was during his surgery training that Dr. Richardson became
acquainted with the specialty of Plastic Surgery and the betterment of
people’s lives through reconstructive and cosmetic procedures. From that
point going forward, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery became the passion
of his professional life.
Dr. Richardson entered specialty training in 1989 under the tutelage of
Dr. John Franklin, then chairman of Plastic Surgery at the University of
Tennessee. Dr. Richardson was the Chief Resident in Plastic Surgery from
1990-1991. While in Tennessee he developed a special interest in Reconstructive
Breast Surgery and the artistry of Cosmetic surgery. He honed his skills while
there and the lessons learned provided the skills necessary to launch a private
practice in Gulfport, Mississippi in 1991. Dr. Richardson completed his
certification in Plastic surgery by passing both oral and written boards in
1994 and that year expanded his practice to the Biloxi area.
Dr. Richardson has served in years past as Chief of Surgery at both Biloxi
Regional Medical Center and Gulfport Memorial Hospitals and maintains
active privileges to practice in all the greater Gulfport and Biloxi area hospitals.
He maintains Associations with the American Society of Plastic Surgery,
American Board of Plastic Surgery, Southeastern Society of Plastic Surgery,
Mississippi State Medical Association and the American Medical Association.
His surgical practice is comprised of 80% outpatient surgery and he provides the
majority of his outpatient care in Biloxi at Cedar Lake Surgery Center and in
Gulfport at Gulf South Surgery Center. He maintains offices in both Biloxi and
Gulfport to meet his patient’s need.
Our goal in providing care is to make everyone feel special through personal
conversation concerning one’s individual needs. No two patients are alike in our
doctor’s eye and he pursues a relationship with those that entrust their care to him
that transcends the doctor patient relationships common to most practices. He and his staff at Coast Plastic Surgery seek to meet the patient’s wishes through surgical and non-surgical approaches that embrace doing only what is necessary, not what is profitable, to make one whole and satisfied. Our business is Plastic Surgery, but out passion is to have you looking your best and happy with the road taken to achieve your wishes.
Dr. Richardson resides in Gulfport Mississippi with his wife Courtney. They have four boys, Stephen, Spencer, Brock and Joshua. Dr. Richardson’s outside interests include hunting, fishing, boating, skiing, scuba diving, and he is an active member at Bayou View Baptist Church.
