Live Your Story
Expert training with innovative best practices.
Your beauty story is one of transformation. Along your journey, you will need someone who will help you reach your goal. Dr. Mike Nayak is a triple board-certified facial plastic surgeon and clinical professor who teaches other surgeons how to perform flawless facial plastic surgery. He is the creator of the Omakase Face Lift®. Omakase (お任せ) is a Japanese phrase that means “I'll leave it up to you.” It is based on the Japanese word makaseru (任せる) - “to entrust.” You can entrust Dr. Nayak to craft the perfect plastic surgery plan for your transformation journey.
Triple Board-Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon
From the beginning, St. Louis Facial Plastic Surgeon, Mike Nayak, MD, has dedicated his career to cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Nayak has a passion for precision and excellence and has created and refined some of the most innovative cosmetic fat transfer, facelift, and rhinoplasty techniques available.
In addition to delivering transformational procedures to his patients, Dr. Nayak teaches his advanced methods to other practicing cosmetic surgeons, including many in the St. Louis area. He is a frequent lecturer at national facial plastic surgery meetings and was recently named “Clinical Professor of the Year” by residents at St. Louis University Medical School.
Education is a vital component to the work Dr. Nayak performs for both his patients and fellow surgeons. As a surgeon and a top clinical professor of facial plastic surgery, Dr. Nayak knows that the key to creating flawless facial plastic surgery results is matching up patient expectations with the right procedures.
By helping you understand what is possible through surgery, Dr. Nayak helps you make more informed decisions that lead to the results you expect. In addition to answering your questions during your consultation, Dr. Nayak also produces a series of educational videos to demystify the facial plastic surgery process. Check out the videos below to learn more about what Nayak Plastic Surgery can do for you.
Just as important as medical expertise is an artist’s eye for detail. This is evident in the genuine, compassionate, unhurried care Dr. Nayak invests in each patient and their beautiful results. Patients love his innovative fat transfer procedure for its subtle, natural restoration of the soft contours of youth and his deep plane facelift and necklift for its dramatic results and fast recovery.
When Dr. Nayak built his practice, he made sure to surround himself with caring, capable co-workers who put the needs of patients above all else.
From a small team of just three employees, Nayak Plastic Surgery has grown to include some of the country’s very best operating room and support staff. Our consultation coordinators and OR team ensure that your procedure goes smoothly and your needs are met, from before your consultation to long after your recovery is complete. At Nayak Plastic Surgery, our incredible team will help you fulfill your dreams.

Dr. Nayak performs each rhinoplasty with an emphasis on results. You will know that you are in good hands and have a thorough understanding of what your nose will look like after your rhinoplasty. When you get a #nosebyNayak, Dr. Nayak uses advanced techniques to make recovery faster and easier, reducing the downtime between your surgery and when you get to truly enjoy your new look.
When someone says a neck lift or facelift is “deep” or “deep plane,” it means that the surgeon makes sure your facelift looks as natural as possible by keeping your skin and muscle from being pulled separately during your surgery. This extra bit of care from Dr. Nayak makes sure your facelift or #neckbyNayak results look like you, only younger.
Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) eliminates drooping eyelids, bags around the eyes, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Blepharoplasty is often a great procedure to have in combination with a facelift to achieve long-lasting improvements in the top and bottom half of the face. Dr. Nayak works with each patient to create custom eyelid surgery plans that take care of your specific needs.
Our St. Louis Med Spa offers a variety of injectable services to provide long-lasting relief from the signs of facial aging without having to worry about a lengthy recovery period. Our fillers can restore volume and augment natural lines along the cheeks, lips, and nose. We also have injectable treatments to remove wrinkles and worry lines for a smooth, natural-looking complexion.
Change your look with intense pulsed light or laser hair removal treatments at our St. Louis Medical Spa. These breakthrough treatments use the power of light specifically targeted to remove hair or damaged skin, resulting in a smoother, healthier-looking complexion - without surgery. These energy-based treatments offer longer results than more temporary solutions like creams or waxing.
