Dr. T. Roderick Hester Retires

Dr. T. Roderick Hester

The Emory Aesthetic Center says goodbye to plastic surgeon Dr. T. Roderick Hester, Jr., founder of Paces Plastic Surgery. Dr. Hester has made the decision to retire after 40 years of practice. We wish him all the best and will miss him greatly.

A Letter from Dr. Hester:

Dear Friends,

It is with mixed emotions that I announce that I have decided to retire from employment with Emory Healthcare and the active practice of plastic surgery. This decision was quite difficult primarily because I will miss all of you very much.

I left Emory in 1991 to pursue my dream of establishing a center dedicated to the care of aesthetic patients. That dream became Paces Plastic Surgery. I came to the conclusion that joining with Emory Healthcare would insure the long-term survival of that dream. That being said, I am seventy-one golden years old and have had forty wonderful years of practice. It is time for me to spend more time with my wife, children and grandchildren and go fishing in Lake Oconee!

I appreciate all the work done by Emory Healthcare to make this union a reality. I have been most impressed with the staff and physicians who have arrived from Emory since early this year. I do not hesitate to assure you that you would by very well cared for by them if the need for plastic surgery occurs in the future.

From my heart,

T. Roderick Hester, Jr.
