Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship


The objective of the fellowship is to provide opportunities for the fellow to be trained and competent in all aspects of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. The fellow gains clinical and operative experience in aesthetic, reconstructive and congenital facial plastic surgery throughout the fellowship year and is provided progressive responsibility intra-operatively as well as in the peri-operative management of patients. The fellowship experience is broad with extensive operative experience in both cosmetic (aging face, cosmetic rhinoplasty, injectable, laser procedures) and reconstructive (post-Mohs surgery and trauma reconstruction, functional rhinoplasty, facial reanimation, microtia reconstruction, and skull base) surgical cases. 

The fellow operates multiple days per week with Dr. Bhrany at UW Medical Center, his private practice, and two days a month are spent performing microtia reconstruction with Dr. Kathy Sie at Seattle Children’s Hospital. One to two days a week is spent operating at Harborview Medical Center with Drs. Kris Moe and Nina Lu. The fellow also has the opportunity to operate with Wayne Larrabee at the Larrabee Plastic Surgery Center and with local oculoplastic surgeons when the schedule permits.  The fellow completes approximately 700-750 operative cases per year. The fellow graduates with a comprehensive experience that prepares for an academic faculty or private practice career in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.

There are ample opportunities for both clinical and basic science research in which the fellow participates a part of an original research project approved by the Fellowship Committee and the Research Committee of the AAFPRS.
