About Dr. Pero, North Texas Facial Plastic Surgeon

Introduction

Colin D. Pero, M.D., is double board certified by The American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS) and the American Board of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery (ABOto). He completed a fellowship specializing in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the nose accredited by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Pero was fortunate to complete his fellowship under the tutelage of Dean Toriumi, M.D., a world-renowned Facial Plastic Surgeon, whose fellowship is regarded as one of, if not the premier training opportunity in the world for the study of Rhinoplasty and Facial Plastic Surgery.

Extensive Experience

Dr. Pero has been in practice for over 10 years and is a well-known expert in his field with a record of excellence. He has chosen to focus his training and practice on Facial Plastic Surgery of the Head, Face, and Neck only and is pleased to offer his patients surgical and non-surgical treatments that enable individuals to reflect the beauty and youthful energy they feel on the inside. His practice emphasizes health and wellness with an interest in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and neck. With every case, he puts a strong emphasis on natural-appealing results and avoids the “tell-tale” signs of poorly performed facial plastic surgery.

Dr. Pero’s specialty is rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty.

My personal philosophy of rhinoplasty is to provide patients with results that make them happy. In doing so, I follow a conservative approach and utilize techniques that minimize the risk of long-term complications while ensuring excellent long-term cosmetic results. Each patient is unique and requires a similarly unique approach to achieve patient satisfaction. This approach involves careful consideration and conversation with the patient on an individual basis with the aid of computer photographs and computerized imaging to decide upon a treatment plan.

My training in rhinoplasty emphasizes adequate support of the nasal structure to resist postoperative scarring forces that result in contracture and “pinching” if inadequately supported.  This results in durable, long-time results that avoid the typical “operated-on” appearance characteristic of some traditional rhinoplasty techniques.

In addition to cosmetic improvements in the nose, impaired breathing can be corrected in nearly all cases. With all rhinoplasty procedures, unimpaired nasal breathing is fundamental to any successful outcome.

If you feel this approach is right for you, call today to schedule your consultation.
