My name is Dr. Robert James Troell and I would like to welcome you to my website’s blog. I am Founder and Medical Director of the Center of Excellence for Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and the Center of Advanced Liposuction.
I have been involved in the academic and private side of medicine nearly my entire career. I have been honored and privileged to have learned from some of the most well respected physician and surgeons in my fields of endeavor.
This format will allow me to educate the public instead of my customary audience of surgeons in the fields of cosmetic plastic surgery and reconstructive surgery.
My training began with graduating Magna Cum Laude from the University of South Florida with a Bachelor of Sciences degree in 1984. I graduated from the University of South Florida Medical School and completed a residency in Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery at Stanford University Medical Center and a fellowship at Stanford University Medical Center.
I completed a distinguished 12 year career in the US Navy as Chairman of Oakland Naval Hospital, Department of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery. My academic affiliation continued as a Volunteer Clinical Professor for seven years at the Stanford University Medical Center. I became accepted into the prestigious American College of Surgeons after my Stanford University fellowship completion.
I am Board Certified in three disciplines including by both the American Board of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery and the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and currently practice in both Las Vegas, Nevada and Newport Beach, California.
My memberships include the American Academy of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery, American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, American Society of Liposuction Surgery and the California Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. I am a recipient of the American Academy of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery’s Honor Achievement Award.
I am currently an editor of the first book to be published on the water-jet assisted liposuction technique, face & body fat grafting and the use of adipose derived stem cells. My academic achievements include being author and/or co-author on 14 book chapters on Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery as well as over 40 peer-reviewed publications.
My liposuction surgical training has had the privilege of being trained by the developer of the Tumescent Liposuction technique, being one of the first surgeons in the United States to use the Water-Jet Assisted Liposuction technology and was trained with Dr Harmut Meyer, the world’s leading authority. Since 2008, I have been a certified physician trainer in the United States teaching other surgeons in Water-Jet Assisted (also known as th BodyJet and Aqualipo) liposuction as well as facial and body fat grafting (Naturalfill).
In the past two years, Dr Troell has completed over 600 facelifts including standard, mini, and midfacelifts, 180 laser skin resurfacing procedures, over 300 cosmetic eyelid surgeries (blepharoplasties), ninety nose beautification procedures (rhinoplasties), over 700 body and facial liposuction procedures, over 80 face & body fat grafting procedures, and numerous other plastic and reconstructive cases. The significant number of cases surpasses most surgeons experience over this period of time.
The medicine and surgical topics of the blog will keep up with the new or changing methods for rejuvenating not only our face & body, but our self-esteem and confidence.
