About John Hilinski

MEET DR. JOHN HILINSKI
A San Diego native, Dr. John Hilinski was pleased to return here and establish his facial plastic surgery practice. Dr. Hilinski attended Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. After graduation, he completed a General Surgery internship followed by a Head and Neck Surgery residency at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) Medical Center. Throughout his residency, Dr. Hilinski focused his efforts exclusively on surgery of the face and neck.

Such specialty training and experience provided him an unparalleled foundation to become a facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Hilinski was chosen for a prestigious Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery fellowship sponsored by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He completed his fellowship in Chicago, Illinois under the direction of internationally renowned facial plastic surgeon Dean M. Toriumi, M.D. In conjunction with his training, Dr. Hilinski served as a Clinical Instructor in the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Illinois, Chicago College of Medicine. During his fellowship, Dr. Hilinski learned the latest advancements in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, encompassing all aspects of cosmetic facial enhancement. In particular, he received advanced training in rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty technique.

Dr. Hilinski is "double board certified" in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as Head and Neck Surgery. This places him in unique company among only a few plastic surgeons in the region that have dedicated expertise and qualifications to perform facial cosmetic enhancement. In addition, he is a member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery as well as the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. Dr. Hilinski has published numerous journal articles and book chapters on a variety of topics in facial plastic surgery. This includes an upcoming instructional guide for surgical residents on advanced techniques for scar revision and two recent chapters on rhinoplasty that appear in the online Plastic Surgery textbook for Emedicine World Medical Library. In addition to his publications, Dr. Hilinski has been invited to lecture at several national surgical conferences. Beyond his position as a staff surgeon at the prestigious Scripps Clinic, he also holds an appointment as Clinical Instructor in surgery at UCSD School of Medicine.

In his spare time, Dr. Hilinski enjoys spending time with his beautiful wife and wonderful kids.
