Richard O. Davila MD, Syracuse Facial Plastic Surgery, Facial Plastics

Dr. Davila is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and Facial Plastic And Reconstructive Surgery at Upstate Medical University. He obtained his medical degree at Georgetown University School of Medicine in Washington, DC. He then completed a 5-year surgical residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Upstate University Medical Center. There, he trained exclusively in surgery of the head and neck and received extensive experience in aesthetic facial reconstruction, maxillofacial trauma, and nasal airway surgery. He served as Chief Resident during his final year of training. After completing residency, he passed his Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery written board certification and was accepted into a highly coveted fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Kansas.


While at the University of Kansas under the mentorship of Drs. David J Kriet and Clinton Humphrey, he received high volume training in all facets of aesthetic facial, nasal, and neck surgery. This included facelift/necklift surgery, rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, lipo-transfer, and otoplasty surgery. He also trained extensively in and provided treatments using neuromodulators (Botox), injectable fillers, chemical peels and aesthetic lasers. Moreover, Dr. Davila’s reconstructive experience focused on caring for patients suffering from facial paralysis and facial nerve disorders, craniomaxillofacial trauma, facial skin cancers, nasal injury, and complex facial scarring.

Dr. Davila's current practice focuses primarily on aesthetic plastic surgery of the face and neck. He is passionate about facial rejuvenation surgery, nasal airway surgery (rhinoplasty), treatments for facial nerve paralysis, and non-surgical techniques. These includes treatments with neuromodulators (Botox), facial injectable fillers (Juvederm and Restylane), and Kybella.

He joins Syracuse Facial Plastics with a philosophy of treating all of his patients with the kindness, respect, and attention that they deserve. He hopes to build with every patient a relationship of partnership, understanding, and confidence.
