Erin Ostby, MD, is a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon at the University of Vermont of Medical Center in Burlington. In addition to her clinical interests, which include nasal obstruction and adult and pediatric facial trauma, she often cares for patients who are in need of rhinoplasty, nasal septal surgery, facelifts and or neck lifts, cosmetic facial surgery, otoplasty, facial trauma reconstruction, facial skin cancer reconstruction, cosmetic neuromodulator injections, and cosmetic injectable dermal fillers.
Dr. Ostby’s goal is to help her patients look and feel their very best. She works to truly understand her patients’ goals of care, and to help each patient understand their condition and both the surgical and non-surgical options available to them for treatment. She says that one of the most rewarding parts of being a facial plastic surgeon is “developing longstanding relationships with her patients and having the opportunity to improve their health and wellbeing, as well as their confidence.” She strives to provide an integrative approach toward her patients’ health and facial rejuvenation by incorporating lifestyle and nutritional regimens into her treatment recommendations, in order to enhance healthy gene expression and to promote long-lasting, natural beauty from within.
Beyond her clinical work, she has conducted research on a number of topics. You can read her work by visiting the National Library of Medicine. Dr. Ostby’s research interests include rhinoplasty techniques and outcomes, nutrition and aging, quality of life outcomes, and lifestyle medicine.
