In his own words...
Why Facial Plastic Surgery?
"I chose this field because of my early interest in the creative sciences - as a former architecture student and musician. This translated to an interest in the creative and spatial side of surgery. As I studied medicine and trained as a surgeon, from my hometown Kansas City to San Francisco to New York City, I found that Facial Plastic Surgery allowed me to hone my surgical skills with creativity along with the compassion and empathy requisite for every good physician. Practicing in this field demands that I carefully and precisely design the ideal result in partnership with my patients while using the most novel, efficient techniques available. It was a perfect choice for me. Hopefully my patients come to see how much my staff and I love our practice when they come to visit us in clinic."
Why Kansas City?
"Returning home to Kansas City after training and practicing elsewhere was one of the best decisions I’ve made - personally and professionally. The care provided by the Ascentist Physicians Group is more innovative, more detail-oriented, and - most importantly - more patient focused than anywhere I’ve practiced. Our hometown of Kansas City is becoming more vibrant and diverse everyday. Meeting and treating the people of my hometown is truly one of the greatest satisfactions of my career.”
Dr. Markey earned his undergraduate and medical diplomas in his home state of Kansas before traveling west to San Francisco to pursue surgical training at the University of California, San Francisco. He then further honed his surgical skills during a dedicated AAFPRS subspecialty fellowship at the Oregon Health & Science University, one of the oldest and most prestigious facial plastic training programs in the country. Dr. Markey then served as Assistant Professor in the division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at New York University Langone Medical Center in Manhattan, New York. Finally, Dr. Markey returned home to the Greater Kansas City area to continue to practice cutting edge rejuvenation and reconstructive techniques and top notch patient care.
Dr. Markey is one of the few double board certified facial plastic surgeons serving Kansas City. Dr. Markey is credentialed by both the American Board of Otolaryngology and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Thank you, Dr. Markey and Irene for being so terrific.
I was referred to Dr. Markey through my internist. My appointment was right on time. Dr. Markey is very personable and makes you feel at ease. He listens to your concerns and, in fact, found that I had cartridge growing in my left nostril that was inhibiting me from breathing correctly. We set up a date for same day surgery. His office team then helped me with scheduling. I messaged Dr. Markey with concerns and he responds right away. I am very glad I found him and would suggest his services to anyone needing a really terrific otolaryngologist. Thank you, Dr. Markey and Irene for being so terrific.
