About Dr. Samaha
Dr. Mark Samaha is an ORL surgeon specialized in facial plastic surgery who takes pride in the quality of care he provides for his patients through every facet of his practice. Dr. Samaha is trained in the most advanced rhinoplasty techniques. His priority is to make his patients’ vision for a beautiful nose a reality. His approach emphasizes a natural “non-operated” look to balance facial proportions and create esthetic harmony.
Dr. Samaha completed his undergraduate studies at McGill University, and went on to earn his medical degree with Honors from Queen’s University in Ontario. He then returned to Montreal to undertake a 5-year residency training at McGill University, which focused exclusively on surgery of the face, head and neck regions. Once his speciality training was completed, Dr. Samaha chose to undergo further specialization and was accepted to a prestigious fellowship at Harvard Medical School’s Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. This extra-specialized training focused exclusively on Nasal and Facial Plastic Surgery.
A skilled and meticulous surgeon, his technique is all about attention to detail. “I am extremely precise and attentive to detail . While this may be considered as a negative by some, it is definitely a quality many people, especially patients, appreciate in a surgeon, particularly one who will enhance their facial features” says Dr. Samaha. He believes that attention to detail is the cornerstone of an excellent result.
Patients consider the consultation as an opportunity to educate themselves about the surgery. Dr. Samaha therefore spends considerable time informing his patients about all aspects of rhinoplasty, and how it applies to them. “Through the years, after seeing hundreds of patients consulting for rhinoplasty, it became clear that there was a need for clear and objective information. I realized, from my patients, that they learned a great deal from the consultation because the information I provided them was unavailable from other sources. I therefore decided to create this website to educate my future patients and the public about rhinoplasty” explains Dr. Samaha.
Dr. Samaha has been practicing the art of rhinoplasty for many years. His expertise is widely recognized by patients as well as his colleagues, who call on his help for the most complex rhinoplasty cases. As an active member of the Faculty of McGill University, Dr. Samaha regularly teaches medical students, residents, and other physicians. Among many lectures, conferences, and teaching seminars he gives, he directs a yearly course to teach the next generation of rhinoplasty surgeons excellence in rhinoplasty and the latest techniques.
Dr. Samaha is double-board certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic Surgery and the American Board of otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. He is also certified by the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada.
