Facial Plastic Surgery with a Focus on Rhinoplasty
Richard E. Davis, MD, FACS specializes in primary and revision rhinoplasty and limits his South Florida practice to reconstructive and cosmetic surgery of the face. Board certified as both a facial plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist (ENT), Dr. Davis has performed thousands of nasal surgeries, ranging from the reconstruction of noses ravaged by disease or trauma to complex revision rhinoplasty cases involving multiple previous surgeries.
Since 2002, Dr. Davis' practice has been devoted almost exclusively to cosmetic and functional nasal surgery, comprising approximately 85% of his surgical caseload. He performs 150 to 300 rhinoplasties per year, and on average, 60% of those are revision rhinoplasties. The majority of these surgeries are multi-faceted, incorporating the correction of unsatisfactory cosmetic results from previous rhinoplasties with structural repair and restoration of proper nasal function. Dr. Davis also occasionally performs other facial plastics surgical procedures in conjunction with rhinoplasty, including chin augmentation and eyelid surgery.
Dr. Davis is a frequent instructor and guest speaker at plastic surgery symposiums throughout the United States and abroad. Now in private practice, he served as Chief of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Miami School of Medicine at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida from 1999 to 2007; he continues to serve as Voluntary Professor of Otolaryngology at the University. After serving a four-year term as Southern Regional Director for the AAFPRS Board of Directors, Dr. Davis was recently elected to serve as Vice President of Education for the AAFPRS and its educational foundation.
This website is designed to be an educational resource for those considering rhinoplasty, whether for the first time or to revise the results of one or more prior procedures.
