Meet Dr. Rawnsley

Jeffrey Rawnsley M.D., M.S.

Dr. Rawnsley is more than your average facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon; he is trained in aesthetics and microsurgery, as well as head and neck surgery. Founder of the UCLA Facial Aesthetic Center, and renowned for helping advance cutting-edge procedures, Dr. Rawnsley is the surgeon who other plastic surgeons go to for training.

In addition to his private practice, Dr. Rawnsley actively serves as a clinical associate professor at UCLA's David Geffen School of Medicine. He consults regularly with other facial plastic surgeons from around the world, who seek his expertise on a range of medical and patient management issues.

He earned his doctorate in medicine, as well as a Masters Degree in health policy, from the University of California, San Francisco. He then completed his residency at UCLA Medical Center, where he also performed specialty training and a fellowship in Facial Plastic Surgery and Microsurgery.

Dr. Rawnsley is double board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery. Dr. Rawnsley is Co-Director of the Fellowship Program in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at UCLA.

The New York Times, Los Angeles Daily News, KNBC-TV, KABC-TV and Reuters Broadcast News have all featured Dr. Rawnsley's pioneering work.

A note from Dr. Rawnsley about his co-directorship of the AAFPRS Fellowship at UCLA

As the co-director of the American Association of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery’s Fellowship program at UCLA, it is my privilege and responsibility to mentor young facial plastic surgeons as they move into the final stages of an extensive training program which has required years of disciplined work to receive the additional designation of facial plastic surgeon, beyond what’s required to be a plastic surgeon.

I take tremendous joy in having a hand in shaping the surgical competencies and artistic eye of young surgeons who have chosen the technical and strenuous path of facial plastic surgery. It is a select group, with about 2,700 members as counted by the AAFPRS (a Specialty Society of the AMA). These young surgeons know that they will have the skills and aesthetic sense to perform the most delicate and the most subtle facial procedures.

In addition to getting to know and work with the new class of facial plastic surgeons each year, my involvement in the training program also helps me keep in touch with the latest advancements in our field. I’m truly blessed for the opportunities I’ve been given as mentor all of these years.
