Plastic surgery, says Dr. Herluf G. Lund Jr., combines science and aesthetics in a way that satisfies his “renaissance” nature: “It is not just a formula you follow to get the result, but a combination of science, analysis, and artistic sense. It’s a great job!”

Know Who He Is

About Dr. Lund

Dr. Herluf Lund was surrounded by medicine for as long as he can remember. He grew up following in the footsteps of some of the best surgeons in St. Louis, Missouri.

Coming from a family well-known in the region’s medical community, Dr. Lund found the science of medicine fascinating. At Tufts University, though, he majored in drama and sociology.

“I loved medicine, but I wanted something that engaged my other interests,” Dr. Lund says, “which included the challenges of the arts and social sciences.”

Plastic surgery, says the St. Louis native, combines science and aesthetics to satisfy his “renaissance” nature: “It is not just a formula you follow to get the result, but a combination of science, analysis, and artistic sense. It’s a great job!”

Dr. Lund describes his surgical approach in three different terms. The first is perfectionism. He gives his best effort in every case to get the best possible result. However, don’t mistake this for “perfect” results. No single being can perfectly control every process.

He is also an activist. Dr. Lund believes that if you’re part of something, you should take an active role. He has held leadership positions in national plastic surgery societies, including a presidency in The Aesthetic Society. Additionally, Dr. Lund constantly researches new techniques and treatments to benefit his patients.

Lastly, he describes himself as conservative. To Dr. Lund, this means he highly values our patients’ resources and researches new technologies to ensure they are effective, safe, and provide value to our patients. Safe and effective care is our top priority at St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery.

My experience with Dr. Lund as well as everyone at St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery has been amazing. Dr. Lund was my first and only consultation. He was professional and was very honest with me when answering my questions about size and possible results. By the time I finished I booked my surgery and cancelled the three other consultations I had scheduled for later in the month.

I decided to get a chin implant and chin liposuction, the process was very simple. I had a consultation with Dr. Lund. His bedside manner was great he made me feel very comfortable, very down to earth and how he treats his nurses and staff made me respect him. The day of the surgery I came to the office he went over everything again, made markings on my face and away we went. I was able to see the chin implant and agree on the size before he finished. I got a wonderful neck strap I get to wear 24/7 the next week.

Dr. Lund is great! From the first time we met, I was completely at ease. He is very knowledgeable, has a great bedside manner and he was very honest during the entire process. He did an amazing job on my tummy tuck! If I ever would want anything else done, he would be my surgeon for that procedure as well. Thank you Dr. Lund!!

Dr. Lund is amazing! He has great bedside manners, great communication, and is honest about what he can do for you. Breast augmentation he did for me had wonderful results. The staff is very friendly, and the office is gorgeous.

Just over three years ago I had a gastric bypass and have since lost a little over 100 pounds. When I lost all my weight, I lost my breasts as well. Dr. Lund was able to restore my breasts and remove some of the excess skin and I couldn't be happier with the results. If I need anything more done in the future, I will definitely be going back under his care.

I had my breast lift and implant surgery with Dr. Lund in April of 2021. I could not be happier! The entire process is seamless! The staff is amazing to work with - always friendly, helpful and professional. Dr. Lund was fantastic to have as my doctor. He was honest, courteous, knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner. I am so happy I chose the St Louis Cosmetic Surgery Center, and I highly recommend Dr. Lund!
