Meet Dr. Bryan N. Rolfes
After a dozen candidates were considered, Dr. Rolfes was our clear choice to become our very first cosmetic surgery fellow and we couldn’t be more excited to have him join our team. In addition to studying the art and science of the cosmetic surgery techniques that Dr. Ness has developed over the past 20 years, he has also started his own business, Omni Facial Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Bryan N. Rolfes graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College with a degree in Classics. It wasn’t until years later, after seeing his mentors struggle with cancer that he decided to pursue a career in medicine. Since then, he has trained for over a decade building his expertise in facial plastic surgery. His education includes 4 year at Chicago Medical School, an intensive residency in head and neck surgery at The Cleveland Clinic, a fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Boston University, under world-renowned surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey Spiegel, and a year as a senior fellow at the University of Minnesota’s Medical Device Center. Dr. Rolfes has focused his training on cutting-edge technology and procedures, and is very experience in minimally invasive, endoscopic, and transgender facial feminization surgery (FFS). His accomplishments have earned him 5 issued US and International patents for his novel developments.
Dr. Rolfes is a Saint Paul, MN native and graduate of Cretin-Derham Hall. He and his wife Marisela are happy to be back in the Twin Cities after years of intense surgical training. In the summer months, they enjoy running, swimming and sailing the local lake with their young son, and in the winter they enjoy dreaming about it.
