“It may be those who do most, dream most”

Stephen Leacock

Since beginning his career, Dr. John Minoli has cared for thousands of nasal and facial plastic surgery patients.

Extensive Education and Training

Beyond the fact that Dr. Minoli is triple board-certified in plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, and head and neck surgery (ear, nose, and throat/otolaryngology), he has extensive training and clinical teaching experience. Dr. John Minoli has been educated and trained at nationally recognized, top-tiered institutions, and his intense training in plastic surgery, facial plastic surgery, and otolaryngology is unusual, even among surgeons.

Fewer than 300 doctors in America have achieved the level of advanced rhinoplasty, nasal, and facelift surgery training that Dr. John Minoli has.

While the average surgeon serves around 5 years in residency after medical school, Dr. Minoli continued his formal training for twice as long (over 10 years) to achieve advanced skills in plastic surgery of the nose and face.


Committed to Nose and Facial Surgery From the Very Beginning

During his first year of medical school, Dr. Minoli took a particular interest in the anatomy of the human head and neck. This continued through independent studies in medical school, involving advanced dissections of the head and neck, and eventually leading to a postdoctoral laboratory-research fellowship in otolaryngology and an extended residency in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery at Washington University (Barnes-Jewish Hospital) in St. Louis, Missouri. During his years in St. Louis, Dr. John Minoli regularly worked with Dr. J. Regan Thomas, a former president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and fellowship preceptor to the featured nasal-rhinoplasty surgeon on the plastic surgery television show “Botched.”

In the spring of 1991, Dr. John Minoli moved to Beverly Hills, California, to train with Dr. Frank M. Kamer, a former president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. At the time, Dr. Kamer was Hollywood’s leading facial plastic surgeon, caring for scores of movie stars, including Frank Sinatra, Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson and James Caan.

Dr. Minoli Has Worked With “The Facelift King of America”

All of these experiences occurred before Dr. Minoli’s formal training in general plastic surgery. In the autumn of 1992, Dr. Minoli joined an established head and neck surgery practice in New York City and began teaching resident surgeons at Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital. While here, he was introduced to Dr. Sherrell J. Aston (once referred to as “The Facelift King of America”). During this period, Dr. Aston encouraged Dr. Minoli to pursue further training in general plastic surgery.

So, Dr. Minoli relocated to Dallas, Texas, and trained at one of the nation’s preeminent plastic surgery teaching programs – Parkland & Baylor Hospitals, at the University of Texas. In Dallas, Dr. Minoli worked directly with Dr. Jack Gunter (one of the key pioneers of modern rhinoplasty) as well as with Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, Dr. Fritz Barton, and Dr. Steve Byrd — all internationally recognized plastic surgeons in the subspecialty of the nose and face.

After completing residency Dr. John Minoli relocated back to New York City where he continued work with Dr. Sherrell J. Aston while also expanding west where he worked with Dr. W. Grant Stevens of Marina Del Rey, California.

In the autumn of 2001, Dr. John Minoli finally launched into Las Vegas, Nevada, where he has been in private practice ever since.

A Dedicated Instructor and Lecturer

This dedication to education inspired Dr. Minoli to become a clinical instructor at the renowned surgical teaching institution in New York City — Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital. Since relocating to Las Vegas in 2001, he has continued to teach other surgeons while maintaining a private practice.

Every March, Dr. John Minoli helps teach an international audience of plastic surgeons at the renowned annual Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium. Dr. Minoli has lectured and performed live procedures, including non-surgical facelifts, for international audiences of plastic surgeons at society meetings.

Over the years, several plastic surgeons have referred difficult rhinoplasty and facelift patients to Dr. John Minoli because of his expertise in these subspecialties.
