Dominic Vernon, MD, specializes in patients requiring cosmetic or reconstructive surgery of the face. Areas of expertise include: nasal obstruction; facial fractures/trauma; reconstruction after skin cancer resection; and free tissue transfer for extensive facial reconstruction and surgery for facial paralysis. Dr. Vernon also performs facial cosmetic surgery, including facelifts, browlifts, rhinoplasty and upper/lower blepharoplasty.

Dr. Vernon's academic interests focus on improving clinical outcomes for facial paralysis. One ongoing project is investigating gracilis free flap outcomes in irradiated patients. Future studies include work on incomplete facial paralysis (Bell’s palsy), investigating additional surgical options and earlier intervention for these patients.
