Dr. Oakley Smith is proud to be involved in the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship program. This program is widely respected by the medical community and represents the finest post-graduate program in the world for the training of facial plastic surgeons.
As a part of the Fellowship program, Dr. Smith interviews and chooses a top graduated Resident, who is otherwise highly trained and ready to go into practice, to join his practice and spend a year with him. This official AAFPRS program enables Dr. Oakley’s Fellows to learn and perform his exact techniques in Rhinoplasty.
