Dr Dan Robinson has had extensive experience in rhinoplasty with formal training in both functional and cosmetic rhinoplasty. He has completed a full one-year fellowship in Facial Plastic Surgery. He has also successfully passed the International Facial Plastic Surgery exam which is held once per year in Washington DC. This exam covers areas of advanced rhinoplasty as well as facial plastic surgery. Following completion of this exam he was recognised as a fully qualified Facial Plastic Surgeon by the Australian Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery. He is the only surgeon in Queensland who has this qualification.

Dr Robinson has a strong interest in rhinoplasty from both a functional and cosmetic perspective. Dr Robinson believes that the best results in rhinoplasty require a meticulous approach in pre-operative consultation, intra operative technique and postoperative management. Dr Robinson never rushes an operation and takes the required amount of time to achieve the desired result.

Dr Robinson is actively involved in research in rhinoplasty and regularly presents at conferences both amongst his contemporaries as well as with training registrars. Some of the topics that Dr Robinson has presented on include:

  • Aesthetic facial analysis.
  • Evolution of facial plastic surgery.
  • Application of the autospreader in rhinoplasty.
  • Management of the nasal valve.
  • Prospective analysis of rhinoplasty outcomes.
  • Approach to the bent nose.
  • Approach to the female overprojected nose.

Dr Robinson works at the Gold Coast University Hospital as well as at Pindara Private Hospital and Gold Coast Private Hospital. He is actively involved in teaching training ENT surgeons as well as junior doctors in rhinoplasty and facial plastics. He also regularly lectures at Bond University to medical students.

Dr Robinson completed a fellowship in Facial Plastic Surgery in Perth in 2012 under the guidance of Dr Tuan Pham. During this period Dr Robinson received advanced training in rhinoplasty with a specific focus on cosmetic rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty and severe nasal obstruction. He is the only surgeon in Queensland to have completed a fellowship in Facial Plastic Surgery, which is recognised by the Australian Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery.

Whilst in Perth, Dr Robinson also worked at Sir Charles Gardiner Hospital as an ENT consultant as well as working at Royal Perth Hospital as a fellow. He has completed several research-based presentations as a direct result of his time spent on fellowship.

During 2011 Dan worked in private practice in Sydney, Newcastle and as an ENT consultant at the John Hunter Hospital. Prior to this Dan completed his training in ENT Surgery in NSW. He received broad and extensive training across regional NSW and Sydney hospitals including Royal Prince Alfred, Sydney Children’s hospital and Concord Repatriation Hospital. It was during his training that he recognised that in order to achieve excellent results in rhinoplasty surgeons should undertake fellowship training in rhinoplasty and dedicate their career to improving their results.

Dan is in group practice in ENT Clinics and works locally with Dr Sam Dowthwaite and Dr Matthew Cronin who have an interest in Head and Neck Surgery.

Dan graduated with honours from Sydney University in 2002 and started work as a doctor in 2003 in NSW. Prior to studying medicine Dan completed a Bachelor of Information Technology and Bachelor of Commerce at Bond University with majors in both Business information systems and Finance. Dan has also worked in a merchant bank for one year after finishing his bachelor degrees prior to starting medicine. Dan was born and raised on the Gold Coast.
