Many people in the Bay Area require some form of facial surgery. This may be something as simple as a facelift in order to keep that youthful appearance, or it could be as the result of an accident resulting in facial trauma.
There are several maxillofacial surgeons in the Bay Area, but few have the amazing skills, years of training, and experience as Dr Alex Rabinovich. He began his medical training at Columbia University School of Dental and Oral Surgery in New York where he graduated with his DDS degree. Following this, he attended the State University of New York, Downstate School of Medicine, obtaining his MD.

Here he developed a special interest in facial cosmetic surgery and was invited to take a Fellowship at Georgetown University / Posnick Center for Facial Plastic Surgery. During his time here he worked with some of the world’s leading surgeons in the field of facial plastic surgery, occuloplastic surgery and craniofacial surgery from Georgetown and Johns Hopkins Universities.
