“It’s extremely challenging and rewarding to be able to treat people of all ages and from all walks of life, to be able to make a difference in their lives through the art of plastic surgery.”—Dr. Maxim Pekarev

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Maxim Pekarev, or “Dr. Max” as he is known to patients, is a specialist in breast, body and facial procedures. His goal is to provide positive, natural-looking change that helps people feel fantastic about their appearance. Men and women throughout the Fort Worth, Texas area rely on him for treatment because of his skill and low-key, patient-centered approach.


Dr. Max earned his medical degree at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey in Newark. He finished his general surgery residency at Drexel University College of Medicine (formerly MCP/Hahnemann) and trained for an additional three years through a highly prestigious plastic surgery fellowship at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.


In Fort Worth, Dr. Max spent several years serving patients at the Center for Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery before establishing MP Plastic Surgery, his private practice. He has the pleasure of sharing his office space with fellow physician, Dr. Dustin Derrick who is a plastic and reconstruction surgeon. He currently performs surgery and has hospital privileges at Texas Health Harris Methodist Fort Worth, Texas Health Harris Methodist HEB, and Texas Health Harris Methodist Southwest.
