Dr. Jack Gunter Performs 5000th Rhinoplasty Procedure
For over 35 years, Dr. Jack Gunter has pursued excellence in the world of rhinoplasty, having written the book on the subject: Dallas Rhinoplasty: Nasal Surgery by the Masters. In addition to the recent translation of this surgical tome into Chinese, Dr. Gunter is announcing another milestone following the completion of his 5,000th rhinoplasty procedure.
Dallas Rhinoplasty: Nasal Surgery by the Masters is the surgical encyclopedia on the rhinoplasty procedure, edited in part by world-renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Jack Gunter. Following the 2011 Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium — a source of knowledge and expertise the world of Dallas Rhinoplasty has depended on for over two decades—Dr. Gunter is officially announcing his successful completion of his 5,000th rhinoplasty procedure.
At the Gunter Center for Aesthetic and Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Gunter and his associates, Dr. C. Spencer Cochran and Dr. Michael Bogdan, perform a range of aesthetic enhancement procedures, including rhinoplasty and revision, or secondary rhinoplasty. For over 35 years, he not only continues to refine the art and science required of one of the most complex plastic surgery procedures, but says he also focuses intensely on providing the surgeons of tomorrow with the skills and expertise necessary to transform the field of rhinoplasty in the future.
While Dr. Gunter contributes a great deal of time fulfilling his role as an educator both in the U. S. and internationally, he adds that his days as a performer and innovator are far from over. Already looking ahead to the coming year and the 2012 Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium, Dr. Gunter had this to say about the future of rhinoplasty: “Since the first modern day rhinoplasty was performed in the U. S. in 1938, plastic surgeons have been attempting to perfect his operation, as it is one of the most difficult procedures in cosmetic surgery. To this day, no surgeon has been able to produce consistently predictable results; however, we are getting closer and hope that with continuous advancement in the teaching of this operation, we can aspire to this in the near future.”
