In 1985, we demonstrated that, following the institution of a specific curriculum in facial plastic surgery, the number of cosmetic procedures generated and performed by residents rose dramatically. We have now demonstrated that this increase has been sustained in the 5 years since establishing the curriculum. We continue to maintain that the key to a successful curriculum in facial plastic surgery is the presence of at least one full-time staff member whose primary function is the practice and teaching of facial plastic surgery.
