Aaron Kosins, MD MBA
Aaron Kosins: The most rewarding aspect of being a Plastic Surgeon is getting to see the results of my work and creativity on a daily basis. I get to see patients after surgery, and the newfound confidence is overwhelming. In my practice I specialize in rhinoplasty. I love this operation because it can really change a young person’s life. Seeing my patients come in with a big smile and new energy makes me feel good inside every time. Unlike a lot of professions where you may only get a “win” every few months, as a physician we often get them every day.
Q: What inspired you to become a plastic surgeon?
AK: When I was in medical school, Plastic Surgeons were the most skilled surgeons I worked with. On my first day rotating on the Plastics service, I saw them use a man’s fibula (leg bone) to make him a new jaw. They disconnected the leg bone with its blood supply and reattached it in the neck. I thought, “I want to do that!” And the first time I saw a rhinoplasty, I knew that would be my lifelong passion. The operation itself is the most difficult operation in Plastic Surgery, and every nose is very different. Making a nose fit the face and look elegant is very difficult, and so I have dedicated my career to doing that.
Q: Do you have any other passions besides your profession?
AK: Absolutely! I love being outdoors and traveling. Every year I try and visit at least four new countries, and I usually incorporate surfing into that. Next year I am going to the Maldives and I am very excited. Being active and doing activities outside is what makes me happy. Fortunately, my biggest passion is rhinoplasty, so I usually don’t feel like I am actually “working.”
