Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship

NYU School of Medicine offers a one-year fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery in our Department of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery.

Facial and reconstructive surgery fellows gain experience in the roles of both primary and assisting surgeon and split time between four high-volume practice settings. Your responsibilities include the following:

Surgical Training

Fellows perform the full range of cosmetic facial plastic surgery procedures, including face-lifts and neck lifts; liposuction; blepharoplasty; brow lifts; rhinoplasty; otoplasty; and placement of facial implants for the chin, jaw, cheek, nose, and temple. Other noninvasive, in-office services to treat aging skin include botulinum toxin (Botox®) and filler injections, laser therapy, and dermabrasion.

Reconstructive procedures fellows gain experience with the full spectrum of facial trauma surgery, reconstruction of skin defects after Mohs surgery, and reanimation surgery for facial paralysis.

Fellows have full operating privileges as attending physicians at Bellevue.

You are expected to significantly contribute to the division’s publication efforts and are responsible for coordinating medical student and resident facial plastic surgery clinical research.
