Dr. Stuart H. Bentkover is an experienced facial plastic surgeon with board certification in both facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, and otolaryngology (ear, nose and throat). At the Bentkover Facial Plastic Surgery & Laser Center, located in the Boston and Worcester areas, Dr. Bentkover and his professional staff are dedicated to providing patients with exceptional facial plastic surgery and office services such as injectable fillers, Botox and skin care.

He provides the full range of facial plastic surgery and laser surgery, with a particular passion for rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty. In fact, rhinoplasty was the reason Dr. Bentkover went into Facial Plastic Surgery.  He has since become an innovator in the field, welcoming the most challenging and difficult cases. His goal for each rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty procedure is to create a natural-appearing, refined nose.
