Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship

The Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship Program at Mount Sinai offers a 12-month comprehensive experience in the full spectrum of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery. This includes rhinoplasty, facial reanimation, skin cancer management and reconstruction, aging face/facial rejuvenation surgery, office-based injectables and lasers, and facial feminization.

The Surgical Experience 

Faculty consist of facial plastic surgeons and head and neck microvascular surgeons. The fellow’s activities encompass broad exposure to all aspects of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery through interactions with a large internal faculty, as well as department-affiliated Moh’s surgeons, dermatologists, oculoplastic surgeons and oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Specific surgical scope includes: 

  • Aesthetic, functional and reconstructive rhinoplasty 
  • Reconstructive surgery for management of non-melanoma and melanoma skin cancers, including local, regional, and free tissue transfer
  • Management of facial paralysis, from office treatment to selective denervation to local and free muscle transfers
  • Extensive experience with office-based injectables and lasers  
  • Broad exposure to both office-based and operative facial aging treatments and surgery
  • Comprehensive surgical management of facial gender affirmation

The Educational Program

Fellows participate in a variety of conferences including the monthly facial plastic and reconstructive surgery research conference, multidisciplinary skin cancer conference, Grand Rounds, educational rounds, and monthly facial plastic marketing meetings. They also participate in our annual cadaver dissection course and annual multidisciplinary facial rejuvenation and reconstruction course run in conjunction with dermatology, plastic surgery and oculoplastic surgery.

The Service Contribution

Fellows staff a ½ day, weekly Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery clinic. Operative cases generated from the clinic are performed with supervision from division faculty. Call responsibilities include 1 day per week of daytime consult coverage at The Mount Sinai Hospital and 4-5 weeks of weekday evening and weekend call at Elmhurst Hospital Center per year

Postgraduate Fellow Placement

The fellowship is built upon a long-standing foundation of facial plastic & reconstructive surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital dating back to Irving Goldman’s pioneering work and education efforts in the 1960 and 70’s. Leveraging the breadth of faculty expertise in the Mount Sinai Health System, the fellowship has grown. Fellowship graduates span the gamut of FPRS practice including academic and private positions throughout the country.
