Get to know Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jerold J. Olson, who served patients in Tucson, Arizona.

Dr. Olson is a highly trained facial plastic surgeon and rhinoplasty specialist who performs a full range of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures for the face, including facelift, eyelid surgery, and nose reshaping. He is the Co-Founder of Foothills Dermatology & Facial Plastic Surgery in Tucson, Arizona. 

As for his academic appointment, he serves as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology at the University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson.

A native of Southern Arizona, Dr. Olson was educated both as an undergraduate and medical student at the University of Arizona. After graduating from medical school, he began general surgery training at the University of Texas San Antonio, followed by a residency in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern. He completed a fellowship in facial plastic surgery at the prestigious Hedgewood Surgical Center in New Orleans, Louisiana under the preceptorship of Dr. Calvin Johnson.

In 1995, he returned to Tucson as section chief of otolaryngology and facial plastic surgery at the University of Arizona Medical Center (UMC). While he was there, UMC was nationally recognized for excellence in the area of head and neck surgery. Dr. Olson was the first fellowship trained facial plastic surgeon in Southern Arizona.

He established his private practice in 2001. Then in December of 2007, he teamed up with board-certified dermatologist Dr. Katherine A. Orlick and founded Foothills Dermatology & Facial Plastic Surgery.

A member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the doctor is board-certified through the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Inc., which was established in 1986 to improve the quality of medical and surgical treatment available to the public by examining for professional expertise in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Known for his expertise in performing rhinoplasty, Dr. Olson corrects both cosmetic and functional nasal problems. He has been an invited speaker on the topic of rhinoplasty both locally and internationally.

With a commitment to surgical excellence, he is affiliated with Northwest Medical Center, Tucson Medical Center, and Banner – University Medical Center Tucson.

Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It can be divided into two main categories – reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. A plastic surgeon’s primary responsibility is performing surgical and non-surgical procedures, and they use a variety of reparative and reconstructive techniques to get the job done. 

In every year from 2011 through 2021, Dr. Olson was selected by his fellow physicians as one of the Best Doctors in America®. This isn’t just another award—only about 4% of doctors in the United States are recognized. This means that not only do Dr. Olson’s peers hold him in high regard as a physician, they would go as far to say that they would seek care from him for themselves or their loved ones.

On a more personal note, Dr. Olson is married to Mercy Olson, RN, who plays an active role in the practice. They have two children and enjoy the many outdoor activities that Southern Arizona has to offer.
