Two Decades of Excellence
Our staff focuses on the unique needs of our individual patients, providing the elite service you deserve!
You will always get a real and friendly voice on the phone. Our staff is trained and knowledgeable to answer many general questions, however, please understand their limits of expertise. They should always refer you to consult with the physician to have your unique needs addressed. No two patients are alike and it would be unfair to treat you as if you were.
We have several staff members to serve your needs. We will happily find you appointments to fit your busy schedule, help with skin care and laser needs, help you maintain a youthful appearance throughout decades, and walk you through the cosmetic enhancing process.
We take pride in the service and care we provide to our patients, because we wouldn’t be here without you!
Mark Owsley, MD
Dr. Owsley grew up in the town of Wallace, Idaho, where he met his mentor, Dr. Hubert Bonebrake, a family practitioner. Dr. Owsley spent many Saturday afternoons on Dr. Bonebrake’s porch discussing his future in medicine (after the yard was mowed).
After graduating from Wallace High School, Dr. Owsley attended Carroll College in Helena, Montana. He worked his way through college in underground mines, like his father had done—his dad didn’t want his son to lose sight of his roots. This hard manual labor helped him establish his work ethic and sustain his enthusiasm to finish school.
Upon graduating, Dr. Owsley attended St. Louis Medical School and went on to his residencies at the University of Texas for a six-year general surgery program, followed by a three-year plastic surgery program.
In 1995, he returned to Idaho to begin the practice of plastic surgery. Dr. Owsley was the first surgeon in North Idaho to practice free-flap and tram-flap reconstruction of the breast, as well as endoscopic breast augmentation. Although he initially immersed himself in both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery, the practice is now 100% cosmetic procedures.
In fact, his recertification with the American Board of Plastic Surgery in 2010 focused on case studies and written exams on cosmetic procedures and the avoidance and resolution of complications.
This elite certification holds him to the highest level of standards and ethics, thereby making him an expert in his field. Because of this training and certification, Dr. Owsley will provide you with the confidence needed when choosing a plastic surgeon for your cosmetic needs.
Dr. Owsley’s interests outside of medicine include the great outdoors—he likes to camp, fish, hike and ride his mules in the backcountry.
