MEET DR. STEPHEN FINK – BOARD CERTIFIED FACIAL PLASTIC SURGEON
Dr. Fink is originally from Michigan and grew up in Jacksonville, Florida. Medicine is a family tradition established by his father, a plastic surgeon and mother, a registered nurse. Dr. Fink’s interest in plastic surgery peaked when he accompanied his parents on mission trips to Mexico and the Dominican Republic. He assisted his father in various plastic surgery procedures. As a result of his parent’s influence, Dr. Fink and both his siblings chose careers in the medical field.
Dr. Fink returned to the Midwest to attend Wheaton College, a well-regarded Christian liberal arts college near Chicago. Medical school followed at Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Post internship, Dr. Fink completed an ENT and Facial Plastic Surgery Residency at McLaren Oakland Hospital, a major trauma center in Pontiac, Michigan. Residency training provided facial plastic and reconstructive surgeries at other well-known hospitals including University of Michigan, Henry Ford Hospital, Wayne State University and William Beaumont Hospital.
Dr. Fink then spent a year in an American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship under the direction of Howard Tobin MD, the immediate past president of the Academy. Dr. Fink trained in a busy, full body cosmetic surgery practice where patients traveled from all over Texas to have cosmetic surgery. The following year, Dr. Fink returned to Michigan establishing his practice as an ENT/Facial Plastic Surgeon at St. John River District Hospital in the Detroit metropolitan area. He was the primary surgeon for facial trauma in the Emergency Department.
Dr. Fink had a solo practice for ten years when he was invited to join an expanding national company of Board Certified Plastic and Facial Plastic Surgeons called Lifestyle Lift. He and his wife, a registered nurse, relocated to Orange County in 2006. The next eight years were spent performing thousands of facelifts and other facial rejuvenation procedures. The facelift is performed using oral and local anesthesia providing a safe and effective procedure with minimal recovery time. Dr. Fink presents his techniques and experience as an invited speaker at the Annual American Osteopathic College of Family Practice for California at the Disneyland Hotel.
