John M. Hilinski M.D. San Diego Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Hilinski

My goal is to help patients feel a renewed sense of confidence by enhancing the facial areas that trouble them most.

Dr. Hilinski has dedicated his career to cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and neck. After earning his medical degree from Harvard Medical School, he continued to the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Medical Center where he completed a general surgery internship and a head and neck surgery residency. This training led to Dr. Hilinski being selected by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery for a prestigious fellowship in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.

Having such an extensive background in face and neck procedures, Dr. Hilinski has developed particular expertise in surgeries like rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, facelift, otoplasty, and more. In addition to performing a wide variety of procedures at his practice, Dr. Hilinski has published several articles and chapters in facial plastic surgery publications, and has been invited to lecture at surgical conferences around the country.

Dr. Hilinski is excited to introduce his new Aesthetic Nurse Kellie Hartmann, who specializes in non-surgical treatments including CoolSculpting® and BOTOX® injections.
