Fellowship Programs: Facial Plastics & Reconstructive Surgery

Program Description:

This fellowship provides in-depth education in all aspects of aesthetic aging face surgery and rhinoplasty/revision rhinoplasty, cutting edge education in non-ablative treatments/injectables, and MOHS reconstructive surgery. The fellow will experience several different facial plastic surgery professional settings – group private practice, solo private practice, and academic. They will be permitted to take an active role in the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative management of patients at each institution, as directed by the primary surgeon. This training program also exposes the fellow to top plastic surgeons from around the greater Philadelphia area with a wide range of backgrounds. Unique among fellowship programs, this experience allows the fellow to learn multiple techniques and perspectives on facial plastic surgery. All surgeries are performed in an ambulatory setting, allowing the fellow to see patients in follow-up. The faculty will mentor the fellow in both the art and science of the patient encounter and the practical aspects of starting and developing a facial plastic surgical practice.


Operative Experience:

Case experience is a priority. The fellow will rotate with the faculty on their surgery days. The combined surgical case load of the faculty is over 1,000 cases per year. The fellow’s time with each faculty will be tailored to create a full and well-balanced experience. The fellow will have a facial plastic & reconstructive surgery focused clinic where they will be able to obtain surgical patients for treatment, operate on them, and perform their follow-ups back in clinic. Additionally, the fellow will be able to offer cosmetic surgeries (at discounted prices) to patients they recruit. These would be the fellows’ own patients, and their surgical care and management would be supervised by the fellowship faculty.


Research Opportunities:

The fellowship provides significant opportunity for clinical research and publication, including active clinical trials.


Requirements of Applicants:

Applicants must obtain active Pennsylvania and New Jersey Medical Licenses.
