Board Certified Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Bill G. Kortesis, M.D., FACS

“The coolest part of what I do is seeing the transformation in patients. It’s why I became a plastic surgeon.”

Past President of the NC Plastic Surgery Society, Dr. Bill G. Kortesis, MD, FACS is a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in both reconstructive and cosmetic surgery. With significant contributions to the field of plastic surgery, he has established himself as a talented and caring plastic surgery doctor with a genuine desire to help others within the medical community and beyond.

“I have a genuine belief that helping others reach their greatest self-esteem is the ultimate reward.”

In addition to being a co-owner and partner with the center, Dr. Kortesis mentors medical students and residents from UNC and Wake Forest, and teaches fellows from the UNC Plastic Surgery Department. He also lectures at local, regional and national American Society of Plastic Surgeons meetings.

“Being a plastic surgery doctor is so much more than moulding the anatomy of the body – we have a unique opportunity to help them achieve something far deeper than physical.  We’re moulding people’s self-esteem.”

Dr. Kortesis’ passion for giving back has taken him on mission trips to Bolivia with the Partners of the Americas to aid pediatric burn victims.  Dr. Kortesis is a competitive marathoner, half-marathon tri-athlete and adventure sports enthusiast who believes in the power of overall wellness. He and his wife are also  active members of the Greek Church and enjoy sharing their time with the local Greek community.

Kimberly Hayes

Dr Kortesis and his colleagues are great! They are very knowledgeable and were very sensitive to my unique case. All 3 Dr’s came to visit my room and discussed my options very carefully and they met my expectations. I’m looking forward to having my procedure with them in the very near future.

Taylor Mims

I was thoroughly impressed with everyone’s bedside manner and attention to detail! Dr. Kortesis was my surgeon for my breast augmentation. He helped me to calm my nerves and before I knew it, the surgery was successfully over. I have minimal to zero pain. Do your research so you can be very clear about what you do and do not want. Photos are a huge help to get your vision across. I HIGHLY reccommend. Best experience and a great level of comfort.

Catherine Joseph

I love all of the amazing staff, they are so kind and always offer great help. Dr. Kortesis gives attention to all the small detail and makes me feel completely at ease with the whole process from the consultation to the procedure. The follow-up care is more then I can ever ask for as a patient. I would highly recommend The Huntstead and Kortesis Center to anyone.
