Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 14, 2015
Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery, a leading provider of medical dermatology, cosmetic procedures and plastic surgery in Central Texas, announced the addition of facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Minas Constantinides, to its medical and cosmetic dermatology practice. Dr. Constantinides moved to Austin from New York City where he has been practicing facial plastic and reconstructive surgery for the last 21 years. He is internationally renowned in rhinoplasty and complicated revision rhinoplasty, but enjoys every aspect of facial plastic surgery including facelifts, eyelid lifts, brow lifts, neck lifts, cosmetic injections and reconstructive surgery of the face.
Dr. Constantinides attended Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons followed by specialty training at Harvard in general surgery and at NYU in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery. He completed his fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery in Toronto, then joined the full time faculty in the Department of Otolaryngology at NYU Medical Center in 1994. He was director of the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery from 1994 to 2012, and founding director of NYU’s facial plastic surgery fellowship program from 1999 to 2014.
During his career, Dr. Constantinides has emphasized giving back to his community. He has helped victims of domestic violence with pro bono surgery and founded international missions offering surgery in Vietnam, Peru and India. He was awarded the Community Service Award by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) in 2010. He serves on the Executive Committee of the AAFPRS as Secretary, and is a Senior Advisor to the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
“Dr. Constantinides’ credentials are typically found in doctors practicing in cities such as New York and Los Angeles,” said Dr. Gregory Nikolaidis, president and founder of Westlake Dermatology & Cosmetic Surgery. “Austin residents have local access to a world-renown facial plastic surgeon.”
Born in Thessaloniki, Greece, Dr. Constantinides came to the US with his family when he was one year old and grew up in Rhode Island. He is fluent in Greek and Spanish, with a good understanding of Portuguese, having lived in Chile and Brazil as a young teen. His wife and oldest son graduated from the University of Texas in Austin and while visiting Austin for football and father-son fraternity weekends, Dr. Constantinides fell in love with the area. With his family’s strong encouragement, he sought out and found the perfect practice match with Westlake Dermatology. He and his family are looking forward to the more relaxed, outdoor lifestyle that Austin offers compared with Manhattan.
“Austin is a fantastic place for me to spend the next chapter of my life. I hope to expand the strong base already available here in plastic surgery by integrating my extensive experiences in cosmetic and functional rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty,” says Dr. Constantinides. “My family and I already love Austin. It’s the place to be.”
