Dr. Dwayne Lett is a board certified aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon with The Surgical Clinic and the founding physician of The Lett Center. As a native Tennessean, Dr. Lett was born and raised outside Knoxville, TN. He returned to East Tennessee after attending school at Davidson College in North Carolina. Upon his return, Dr. Lett met his wife, who is a pediatrician, in medical school at The University Of Tennessee’s Memphis campus. Dr. Lett started as a general surgeon where he did his residency with his wife at the University of South Carolina. He and his wife both returned to Tennessee once again where he completed his plastic surgery residency and fellowship in Chattanooga.

“As far as plastic surgery, I have the opportunity to restore form and function in a person whose been given a diagnosis and treatment that leaves them powerless and they feel like they have very little ability to look and act the way they would desire. So, plastic and reconstructive surgery lets me do some of that.” – Dr. Lett

As people are healthier, and living longer, aesthetic surgery allows Dr. Lett to help improve the quality of life as we age. The Lett Center provides a variety of both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. Surgical treatments include in office procedures for reconstruction due to cancer, most commonly breast and skin cancers. We also provide aesthetic and reconstructive surgery such as breast augmentation, breast lift, facelift, facial rejuvenation, upper and lower eyelid surgery, liposuction and body contouring. Our team includes a full-time aesthetician who performs hair removal, skin toning and tightening, taking care of small varicosities, and a breadth of other options.

One of our more popular areas of treatment is the “mommy makeover” that includes breast rejuvenation, abdominoplasty and diastasis repair for tightening of the tummy, sometimes associated with liposuction (depending on the patient’s desires). It’s also become increasingly more popular for men to seek plastic surgery – particularly, facial rejuvenation, even facelifts as well as breast lift contouring and abdomen contouring in a male.

Dr. Lett currently lives in Lebanon with his wife Donna and his daughter Madeline. He enjoys a healthy lifestyle and believes in total wellness. He enjoys jogging and outdoor activities such as hiking or skiing. But his greatest enjoyment is being a husband, to his wife who is also a surgeon, and a father. Dr. Lett is a veteran of the Army Reserve and finds great personal satisfaction in using his skill and talent as a plastic surgeon to restore quality of life and dignity to those injured during military service. Dr. Lett is actively involved in community service, and serves on several local boards in the greater Nashville area, including Mt. Juliet and Lebanon.
