Dr. Jason Wright was born in Spokane, WA and began his undergraduate training at Whitworth University. He transferred to Washington State University for his last two years and graduated with a BS in Biology. He then attended Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Bradenton, FL for medical school. From their he moved to Detroit, MI where he pursued and completed his 5 year General Surgery Residency. It was during these five years that he was exposed to breast cancer surgery and breast cancer reconstruction. The more reconstruction cases he was involved in the more Plastic Surgery intrigued him. This changed from intrigue to a passion. After completing his residency he then moved to Salt Lake City, UT where he then completed a total body Cosmetic Surgery fellowship through the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.
It was Jason, and his wife Sara’s, plan to always return to the Pacific Northwest. With family friends and colleagues in the Tri-Cities, WA, they decided to move to the Tri-Cities and open a Cosmetic Surgery Practice. With hard work and a passionate commitment to Aesthetic Surgery, Dr. Wright opened Wright Surgical Arts.
Patients say that Dr. Wright has a non-intimidating manner that makes it easy to communicate with him. This is exceedingly important to him because there should be no barrier when discussing realistic expectations, risks, or the course of your recovery. This barrier-free communication helps us reach a practical and rational surgical plan that ends in outstanding results.
Dr. Wright chose cosmetic surgery because he is fascinated by the technical aspects as well as the fact that in order to become an excellent surgeon, one must master being an excellent physician. Cosmetic surgery also requires artistic talent. This appeals to him as he appreciates that each individual is different, challenging him to think outside the box since no two procedures or patients are the same. Being a surgeon has been his life long dream. All the years of his surgical training and patient interactions have propelled him towards a passion for cosmetic surgery and understanding that each individual is beautiful and unique in their own way.
Dr. Wright absolutely loves what he does, and one of the most rewarding aspects of this is hearing from patients how a cosmetic procedure he has performed has helped enhance their own self-confidence. If this drives any one patient toward fulfilling a lifelong dream, or just stepping out of their comfort zone because they suddenly feel confident enough, then he is fulfilled. That is what makes Dr. Wright’s profession as a cosmetic surgeon fulfilling every day!
