Plastic Surgeon in Columbus, Ohio – Meet Dr. Donaldson


Dr. Jeffrey H. Donaldson brings the country’s most current concepts in plastic surgery to his practice in Columbus. He is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery and has completed both fellowship and subspecialty-fellowship training with some of the most influential leaders in the field.

In addition to authoring many published articles about plastic surgery and presenting research at national and international meetings, Dr. Donaldson also teaches medical students and resident surgeons while serving as a media consultant on a variety of plastic surgical topics.


Born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, Dr. Donaldson graduated from Upper Arlington High School and attended Yale University where he majored in English with professors Harold Bloom and Robert Stone, and played quarterback for coaching legend Carmen Cozza.

Dr. Donaldson pursued his medical degree at The Ohio State University and a five-year general surgery residency at Maine Medical Center in Portland, Maine. He was selected from more than 100 surgeons to train in plastic surgery fellowship at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. After completing this program, he was selected for a highly prestigious and sought-after oculoplastic/aesthetic surgery sub-specialty fellowship at Paces Plastic Surgery in Atlanta with Emory faculty members Mark Codner, Rod Hester, Sonny McCord and Foad Nahai.

During the last 12 years of his medical education and training, Dr. Donaldson was invited to join his mentors and become academic faculty, but he decided to return to Columbus to establish a practice near family in his hometown.

Practicing in Ohio

Dr. Donaldson has hospital and operating privileges at Riverside Methodist Hospital, Dublin Methodist Hospital, and Riverside Outpatient Surgery Center. He specializes in plastic surgery procedures for the face, breast and body.  He has an accomplished background in reconstructive surgery for correction of birth defects, cancer disfigurement and motor vehicle injuries, but now he focuses solely on the needs of his cosmetic patients.

Offering more non-invasive procedures such as Botox, Juvéderm and Voluma for treating wrinkles, Dr. Donaldson champions an innovative approach to skin care and provides several lines of skin products that are only available in dermatology and plastic surgery offices.

Dr. Donaldson uniquely combines his Ohio roots and strong sense of community with world-class training and faculty exposure. He merges a personal attention to detail with warmth, understanding, and years of clinical experience.
