If you want to improve your appearance, working with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon may be an excellent option for you. This specialist usually has dual degrees in medicine and dentistry, and thoroughly understands the face and neck.
It takes 12 to 14 years of postsecondary education to achieve an oral and maxillofacial degree, according to the American College of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Graduates typically pursue a fellowship in one of four specialties: trauma repair, cancer reconstruction, cleft palate and lip surgery, and cosmetic facial surgery.
Dr. Cornell McCullom III, D.D.S., M.D., is one of only five African American oral and maxillofacial surgeons in the country with a medical degree. He specializes in facial aesthetic services to reverse signs of aging and correct facial imperfections. Patients who come to his practice, Timeless Beauty, for facial cosmetic treatment know they are working with one of the most skilled and dedicated doctors in the business.
Among the many procedures he performs in his aesthetic practice are fillers, lip reduction, NovaThreads for facial tissue lifting, Botox and Xeomin for wrinkle relaxation, chin and cheek implants and fat grafting for facial balancing, keloid scar removal, repair of torn earlobes, mole removal, neck and jowl liposuction, PRP and Vampire facelifts, and gum recontouring to correct gummy smiles.
Dr. McCollum attended Yale University for his undergraduate degree. He went on to earn his Doctor of Dental Surgery and complete his oral surgery residency at Howard University. After teaching at the University of Illinois Dental School and Northwestern Dental School, he returned to medical school at Northwestern to incorporate facial cosmetic surgery into his practice. Dr. McCullom also completed a year-long fellowship in general anesthesia at Cook County Hospital in Chicago.
He places great value on continuing education both for himself and other dentists. In fact, he often videotapes his surgeries for continuing education seminars.
Dr. McCullom is a member of numerous professional organizations and is even starting his own teaching institute in Chicago to pass along his knowledge. One of his goals when working with patients is ensuring they learn about the procedure they will undergo and its benefits.
