“The face represents our identity to the outside world, to our friends, to our family, and most importantly, to ourselves.

As a result, each procedure must be tailored to the individual patient.” as stated by the doctor.

Following medical school, Dr. Ward was honored to be chosen to pursue his training in otolaryngology—head and neck surgery at the University of Michigan, arguably the top facial plastics training program in the world. Following residency, he pursued further training with a fellowship in facial plastic surgery, where he also served on the faculty at the University of Michigan. This experience was one of the most meaningful experiences of his career as he had a chance to train with the internationally-recognized masters of facial plastic surgery at the University of Michigan. He was then recruited back to the University of Utah, where he joined the faculty of the School of Medicine as an Adjunct Associate Professor.
Upon arrival at the University of Utah School of Medicine, he brought with him new techniques in facial plastic surgery that had not previously been performed in Utah or the Intermountain West, including advanced techniques in rhinoplasty, facelift, blepharoplasty, reconstruction after skin cancer removal, facial trauma, and the treatment of patients with facial paralysis.
A Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, the doctor is board-certified in otolaryngology by the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, which serves the public by ensuring that diplomates meet the standards of training, knowledge, and professionalism through initial and continuing certification. Moreover, he is board-certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, 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.
A national and internationally known lecturer and educator of other surgeons, he serves on multiple national committees with the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, as well as serves as a member of the Founder’s Club of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery based on his dedication to facial plastic surgery.
