Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Rutgers Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery provides exceptional care in the full range of plastic, aesthetic, and reconstructive surgery in the head and neck area. We provide treatment options for patients with complex deformities related to both trauma and cancer, as well as many other cosmetic issues. From Rhinoplasty, Blepharoplasty and Facelifts to Free Flap Reconstructive Surgery, our faculty offer great cosmetic outcomes, while stressing the importance of functionality.

Boris Paskhover, MD. A fellowship trained Facial Plastics and Reconstructice Surgeon, he is the department's full time academic expert on all aspects of Facial Plastics. He has a particular interest in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the nose, eyes and face including revision procedures. He also has training in all aspects of craniofacial deformities, trauma and facial nerve disorders. In addition to his facial plastics training, he is a board certified Otolaryngologist.

Chan (Richard) Park, MD. He is fellowship trained in Microvascular Reconstructive Surgery and provides treatment options for patients with severe deformities after cancer resection and/or trauma. The ability to preform ablative cancer surgery and reconstructive surgery within the department has enabled patients to achieve improved swallowing, breathing, and cosmetic outcomes.

Dylan Roden, MD, MPH. He completed his residency training at New York University (NYU) followed by a fellowship in advanced Head & Neck Surgical Oncology and Microvascular Reconstruction at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. Dr. Roden performs free tissue transfer (microvascular free flaps), able to use skin, muscle, and bone from other areas of the body to reconstruct parts of the head and neck. He also implements Virtual Surgical Planning (VSP) which utilizes computer aided design and simulations in order to more precisely plan these complex reconstructive surgeries. Dr. Roden also has a specific interest in facial reanimation, which helps patients who have facial paralysis to achieve better facial symmetry, and in some cases to be able to smile again. 

Paul Carniol, MD. He is a voluntary faculty member with the department. He is board certified in both Otolaryngology and Plastic Surgery. He has a clinical interest in performing aesthetic surgery as well as reconstructive surgery.
