Do you want a personal relationship with your plastic surgeon? Someone who wants to get to know you as the wonderful, beautiful person you are? Are you searching for a physician who truly understands your aesthetic desires, the effect of body image on your self-esteem, and wants you to be empowered to look and feel your best as a woman?
I’m here to do just that.
Hello. I am Dr. Alina Sholar. I am an Austin,TX Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery, owner of Sage & Sweetgrass Wellness Spa, Inc and Sholar Center-Austin, PA and Medical Director/O.R. Director of Serenity Creek MedSpa & Plastic Surgery Center. I LOVE helping women (and men) discover the beauty within, then reflect it to the outside. I help heal women and teach them to love themselves so they are empowered to change the world!
I am a Texas native who is proud to be a member of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. I received my BS degree in Biomedical Science with Magna Cum Laude honors from Texas A&M University (Gig ’em!) and an MD degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch on a full tuition merit scholarship. I was there awarded the prestigious Janet M. Glasgow Memorial Award and Achievement Citation for Women in Medicine.
After completing a full five-year residency in General Surgery at the University of Louisville, I continued my study of surgery by completing an additional residency in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Tennessee.
In addition to my more professional endeavors as an Austin TX plastic surgeon, I am a medical illustrator and an accomplished artist, with personal artwork displayed at Sage & Sweetgrass. My medical artwork has been published in prestigious medical journals and textbooks such as the Annals of Plastic Surgery, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Journal, Annals of Surgical Oncology, and Cameron’s Current Surgical Therapy. This artistic talent and understanding of human anatomy is demonstrated in my ability to create beautiful and natural enhancements in reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.
One more important thing about me… I love my weenie dogs! Our rescued dachshunds capture my heart with each sweet puppy kiss!
“While no plastic surgeon can promise perfection, I can promise a commitment to obtaining the best possible result for the individual I am treating. I believe in first getting to know my patients. I spend a lot of time just talking with them, letting them be heard. Then, I spend a while educating my patients as much as possible about the procedure they are choosing, even drawing out their procedures on paper right in front of them, so they understand everything we are planning to do. When my patient is well informed and thoroughly understands the benefits and limitations of what can be achieved, she or he is more pleased with the final outcome. Our practice is very unique in terms of how much we provide for our patient pre- and postoperatively, and you can be assured your experience here will be far beyond any other plastic surgery office around.
I hope to not only show our patients how they can look better, but also to make them feel great on the inside, too. That’s why I think plastic surgery is such a great field of medicine to be in. It really is the medicine of being beautiful AND living well. We’ll teach you how to love yourself beautiful!”
