OUR PRACTICE

The primary focus of Dr. Dibelius’s practice is helping patients obtain an aesthetically beautiful, anatomically functional nose using advanced surgical techniques. Dr. Dibelius takes on a wide variety of cases, from those who are having their first “nose job” to those who have had severe nasal trauma, cancer resections, “botched” cosmetic surgeries, and major breathing issues. He also has specialized training in so-called “augmentation rhinoplasty” – or building up the bridge of the nose, which is a common goal for Asian and African-American patients. Dr. Dibelius is proficient at rib grafting through a minimal incision, which allows him to take on cases considered too complex by many rhinoplasty surgeons.  Dr. Dibelius strives to be considered one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in NYC and indeed around the world. 

MEET DR. DIBELIUS

Dr. Dibelius, an accomplished rhinoplasty surgeon, earned his undergraduate degree at Amherst College and pursued medicine at the State University of New York Downstate Medical College. Graduating at the top of his class, he completed an internship in Surgery at Beth Israel Medical Center and a surgical Residency in Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery at the NewYork Eye and Ear Infirmary.

Selected for a fellowship with the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), Dr. Dibelius studied under Dr. Dean Toriumi at the University of Illinois – Chicago, gaining exposure to advanced rhinoplasty techniques and complex cases. A member of prestigious honors societies and surgical organizations, he has presented research nationally and internationally. As an Affiliate Faculty at Charles E. Schmidt Florida Atlantic University School of Medicine and Clinical Instructor at the University of Illinois – Chicago, Dr. Dibelius is dedicated to advancing rhinoplasty science and art, making his NYC practice among the best in the field.

Dr. Dibelius is a member of the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha and Sigma Xi honors societies, as well as the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery. He has been active as an investigator and has presented his research at the national and international level. He has led courses instructing surgeons on updated techniques and new technologies in rhinoplasty, including the piezoelectric bone sculpting device and the use of fat-derived stem cell therapy in nasal reconstruction. In fact, he was one of the first United States adopters of ultrasonic piezoelectric technology in rhinoplasty under the recent FDA approval for the device in 2017. He has also authored publications in highly regarded medical journals in the fields of cancer research and facial plastic surgery, as well as several book chapters.

Dr. Dibelius was appointed Affiliate Faculty at the Charles E. Schmidt Florida Atlantic University School of Medicine in the Department of Surgery and has also served as a Clinical Instructor at the University of Illinois – Chicago.

Dr. Dibelius has dedicated his career to mastering the science and art of rhinoplasty surgery and his specialized practice is considered amongst the best for rhinoplasty in NYC.  

A DIFFERENT CONSULTATION EXPERIENCE

At the core of Dr. Dibelius’s practice is meticulous attention to detail, and the consultation process is no different. Your consultation is an in-depth evaluation for surgery with a thorough discussion of issues specific to your case. In an era where medical visits have been cut frustratingly short, Dr. Dibelius believes that there is truly no substitute for a thorough consultation.  He strives to make sure all your questions are answered as completely as possible, and to never make you feel rushed while doing so. We strongly believe that this makes our practice unique and helps make Dr. Dibelius one of the best rhinoplasty surgeons in NYC.

Dr. Dibelius uses state-of-the-art digital photography and computer imaging techniques to enhance communication about goals and expectations of surgery. A portfolio of work is available for viewing during the consultation.

COMPUTER IMAGING & DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY 

High-quality photography is an essential part of performing world-class aesthetic procedures.  In our practice we use state-of-the-art digital photography techniques to help our patients achieve outstanding results.  During your consultation we will take photographs that are standardized for plastic surgery. We then use these images to provide visual simulations of possible outcomes* of the planned surgery, and to help facilitate discussions of various aesthetic goals with the help of individualized visual aids.  This is an important part of the consultation process which helps ensure that the surgeon’s and patient’s goals for the surgery are aligned.  While it is impossible to perfectly simulate an exact outcome, these images are one of the most important communication tools we have to discuss visual concepts and ideas with our patients.

 

*simulated images are not a guarantee of outcome and are not meant to be construed or interpreted as such.
