Academic Background

I first met with Plastic Surgery in 1993. I received training in this field for 6 years, namely for the duration of a medical faculty. I graduated as a plastic surgeon in 1999. I have been performing this profession for almost 13 years since then.

During my professional life, I had more than 50 scientific articles in the field of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery.
In recent years, my work focuses mainly on “nose function and aesthetics”. There are two surgical techniques defined by me for the first time in this field. I participated in various scientific meetings in Turkey and abroad on these matters as a speaker.

In addition to rhinoplasty and nose function, I have also published a study on another surgical technique that I have developed related to droopy eyelid. I am also preparing to publish information on larger patient series.

In the last few years, I have been intensively working on body contouring, breast and abdominal aesthetics. In order to follow current developments in this area, I worked in the USA for 3 months in 2012.

Plastic Surgery is a constantly developing and dynamic branch. Contributing to this process and following the progress are among the first of my academic goals.
