Dr. Henstrom's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Henstrom "Dr. Douglas Henstrom is a double board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and head and neck surgeon (otolaryngology). Dr. Henstrom joined Utah Facial Plastics in early 2017 after careful selection by Dr. Thompson based on his impressive credentials, experience and surgical results. Dr. Thompson has also had the pleasure of working with him on a number of medical missions in previous years and has witnessed his work first-hand. Dr. Henstrom believes "plastic surgery should not look or feel plastic," and provides natural-looking results, which is what all providers at Utah Facial Plastics are known across the country for. Prior to joining Utah Facial Plastics, Dr. Douglas Henstrom was considered one of Iowa's best-trained Facial Plastic surgeons. He first developed a love and passion for plastic and reconstructive surgery while working with his father-in-law, the late Dr. Blayne Hirsche of Provo. After receiving his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University in 1999, where he also earned academic all-conference awards as a member of the football team, he then completed medical school at the University of Iowa. He continued his training by specializing in Head and Neck surgery at the Mayo Clinic and was subsequently selected for a highly competitive two-year fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery at Harvard through the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, where he refined the necessary skills to become a leader in his field. He continued his efforts in research and clinical teaching at the University of Iowa and has published multiple articles and textbook chapters in the field of plastic surgery. For the last 5 1/2 years he has been the director of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery in the Otolaryngology department at the University of Iowa, perennially one of the top programs in the country. There he had the responsibilities of a busy clinical practice, as well as the education and training of the next generation of physicians. During this time he has taught and trained over 30 residents and fellows in the art and science of facial surgery. Dr. Henstrom excels at teaching, and has even provided lectures to the BYU pre-med students about how to get into medical school. With your face as your identity, Dr. Henstrom fully believes in the importance of choosing a facial specialist who can provide results that come without any telltale signs of surgery. His philosophy is simply about making patients feel happy and good about themselves. This is accomplished through a comprehensive approach utilizing surgical procedures, injectables, resurfacing techniques, and skincare to help patients look and feel their best. Dr. Henstrom listens with genuine concern to identify areas of improvement, provides education on the array of options available, and performs treatments and procedures with meticulous care. He aims to carry on the legacy of professionalism and perfection left to him by Dr. Blayne Hirsche. Dr. Henstrom continues to participate in annual surgical mission trips treating children with congenital deformities with the H.U.G.S. foundation. Dr. Henstrom is moving home to Utah with his wife and six children. He is an avid supporter of BYU athletics, loves the outdoors, skiing, travelling, working on bonsai trees, and most of all being with his kids."

Dr Henstrom did my consultation. It was great. I came in with concerns but not sure what procedures would make sense for me. Especially because I'm younger (30) but after carefully listening to my concerns he recommended the right procedure for me. Great experience.
