Simeon Wall Jr
Simeon Wall Jr, MD, is an aesthetic plastic surgeon in private practice in Shreveport, LA. He earned his undergraduate degree from The University of Texas at Austin, and his medical degree from The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Dr. Wall Jr completed his combined General Surgery and Plastic Surgery residency at Stanford University Medical Center, where he met and trained with his future wife and partner plastic surgeon, Dr. Holly Wall. Upon the completion of their training at Stanford, the Drs.’ Wall joined Dr. Simeon Wall Sr, to complete Dr. Wall Jr’s lifelong desire to practice with his father. Dr. Wall Jr, his wife Dr. Holly Wall, and his father Dr. Simeon Wall Sr, are all plastic surgeons who specialize in cosmetic surgery, practicing together at The Wall Center for Plastic Surgery, a fixture in Louisiana for over 45 years. In 2009, they completed construction of their full-service aesthetic center- a 17,000 square foot facility housing a State-licensed, AAAASF-accredited, and Medicare-certified Ambulatory Surgery Center, comprehensive laser center & medispa, extended stay guest suites, private fitness center, and plastic surgery clinic.
Dr. Wall Jr’s practice is focused on primary and revisionary breast enhancement & body contouring, with an interest in facial rejuvenation and rhinoplasty. Dr. Wall Jr is credited with the development of SAFELipo®, a non-thermal, process-approach form of comprehensive fat management incorporating liposuction, fat redistribution (fat shifting), and Expansion Vibration Lipofilling (EVL). SAFELipo minimizes bleeding, tissue trauma, and contour deformities while maximizing smooth & even fat removal, and can be utilized with all excisional procedures safely and effectively. Dr. Wall Jr originally developed SAFELipo and EVL as effective techniques for use in revision liposuction and correcting contour deformities, but found SAFELipo and EVL to deliver superior outcomes for all body-shaping procedures, as many plastic surgeons now have throughout the world. In addition to his contributions in the advancement of primary and revisionary liposuction & body contouring, Dr. Wall Jr’s technique of full abdominoplasty with circumferential SAFELipo and targeted fat grafting (EVL) of the buttocks is widely accepted, as is his work in combining multiple procedures safely in an outpatient setting. The majority of Dr. Wall Jr’s practice consists of breast & body combination surgeries, including “mommy makeovers”, simultaneous short-scar mastopexy/breast augmentation, and simultaneous SAFELipo with fat shifting/fat grafting of the face, breasts, buttocks, and body.
In addition to his surgical practice, Dr. Wall Jr holds multiple patents for medical devices and is a founder of SurgiStem Technologies, LLC, a medical research company focused on fat transplantation and stem cell technology.
