Dr. Brian Dorner

Dr. Dorner is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. His awards include being named one of ‘America’s Top Plastic Surgeons’, the ‘Patients’ Choice Award’, ‘Strathmore’s Who’s Who’, ‘Kipling’s Who’s Who’, ‘The International Association of Plastic Surgeons Top Plastic Surgeon’, ‘Compassionate Doctor Award’, and others 

Dr. Dorner was also selected to complete a yearlong fellowship in cosmetic surgery as the distinguished Owsley fellow (only one plastic surgeon per year is chosen). He is the director of the Division of Plastic Surgery at Mount Carmel West Hospital and is the only plastic and cosmetic surgeon to sit on the State Medical Board’s Quality Improvement Panel.

He received his medical training at the University of Michigan Medical School. His general surgical and plastic surgical training were obtained through the combined plastic surgery program at The Ohio State University.

Dr. Dorner’s father was a plastic surgeon and his mother an artist. This combination immediately drew him to cosmetic surgery, and Dr. Dorner sought extended training in advanced aesthetic surgery. Selected from applicants across the nation, Dr. Dorner completed the highly regarded cosmetic surgery fellowship under John Q. Owsley, MD, one of the innovators of the modern facelift. During this fellowship in San Francisco California, he honed his skills in all aspects of advanced cosmetic surgery including facial rejuvenation, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, and body contouring.

Dr. Dorner uses modern techniques to provide natural results. Using a SMAS oriented face, neck, and cheek lift, Dr. Dorner is able to provide mid-face and lower facial rejuvenation in one procedure. His techniques help reduce recovery time while providing an uncompromised result without the usual stigma of facial aesthetic surgery. Dr. Dorner has had extensive experience in body cosmetic procedures, and his meticulous attention to every detail gives outstanding results.

Dr. Dorner prides himself in taking extra care and time with each patient to ensure that all their questions are answered and that each individual receives personalized attention. Make a commitment to yourself and call today for an appointment.

Away from the operating room, Dr. Dorner enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter and two sons. He also enjoys sailing, tennis, and tinkering with computers. Dr. Dorner has also written two suspense novels revolving around medicine and technology and is working on a third.
