As the son of an Otolaryngologist, Dr. Rami K. Batniji was exposed to a career in medicine at a very young age. While at Williams College, Dr. Batniji completed his premedical courses but also used his time in college to major in History and study other areas of interest, such as Art History, and play baseball at the collegiate level. During medical school and Otolaryngology-Head & Neck Surgery residency, Dr. Batniji was drawn to facial plastic surgery because it is such meticulous work and requires careful attention to detail. It’s the perfect blend of his childhood passions for science and art. In terms of a career choice, facial plastic surgery enables him to help individuals ‘reconstruct’ areas of their face that have been affected by trauma or serious illness as well as provide options for people who would like to make aesthetic changes for more personal reasons (e.g. corrective surgery, youthful look).
Dr. Batniji is board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as the American Board of Otolaryngology. He limits his practice exclusively to facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. The most common surgical procedures Dr. Batniji performs include rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, facelift, necklift, and blepharoplasty. As well, he performs reconstructive surgery, including skin cancer reconstruction, laceration repairs, and facial fracture repairs.
