Dr. Ducic is board certified in both Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology-Head and Neck
Surgery. He has published a large number of articles in the fields of cosmetic surgery (including rhinoplasty, chin
augmentation, face lift, lip augmentation, laser resurfacing, and ear shaping surgery), reconstructive surgery
(including a number of different flaps to assist in restoring the face and neck), maxillofacial trauma, and skull base
surgery (including various approaches to access lesions of the skull base as well as a number of techniques to
optimize appearance postoperatively).

Although we focus our effort on the face, head and neck, we routinely harvest grafts (bone, skin, cartilage, muscle,
tendon) from other parts of the body to assist us in optimizing the esthestic and functional restoration of the face
and facial skeleton. This allows Dr. Ducic to improve appearance not only in cosmetic surgery patients, but also to
enhance the return of form in reconstructive surgery patients. This includes patients suffering from congenital birth
defects (cleft lip, cleft palate, skin lesions, craniofacial abnormalities) and trauma (fractures of the upper face or
mandible, scar revisions). The ability to perform many types of tissue transfers, including microsurgical
procedures, allows us to treat many head and neck cancers aggressively while optimizing appearance and
functional ability after loss of tissue by the tumor.

Dr. Ducic was born in the former Yugoslavia, moving with his parents to Canada at the age of 6. He grew up in
Canada’s beautiful capital city of Ottawa, where he completed much of his training. He moved to the USA to
complete a Fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Ducic then
moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Dr. Yadro and his wife, KaTrina have four children: Aleksa, Luka, Nikola
and Nadia. Dr. Ducic enjoys spending time with his family, sports and travel.

We will work with you to develop a treatment plan with which you are comfortable and allow you to make an
informed decision about your surgery. Many factors need to be considered before considering surgery. We look
forward to the opportunity to guide you in this process.

Dr. Pero has chosen to focus his training and practice on Plastic Surgery of the Head, Face & Neck only.  His
practice emphasizes health and wellness with an interest in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and
neck.

Dr. Colin Pero is Double Board-Certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and
the American Board of Otolaryngology/Head and Neck Surgery and has completed a Fellowship accredited by the
American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.

He is pleased to offer his patients surgical and non-surgical treatments that enable individuals to reflect the beauty
and youthful energy they feel on the inside.  He has a strong emphasis on natural-appearing results, and
avoidance of the “tell-tale” signs of poorly-performed plastic surgery.

As a native of the Dallas area (growing up in Allen, Texas), Dr. Pero is proud to be practicing in the North Dallas
area.  Following graduation from Allen High School, Dr. Pero attended Baylor University on a Presidential
Scholarship, earning the Dean’s List amongst other honors.  Following college, Dr. Pero attended the University of
Texas Health Sciences Center-Houston Medical School, where he excelled.  He was selected for the Alpha Omega
Alpha Honor Society, the only nationally recognized honor society for medical school students.

Following medical school, Dr. Pero performed his internship in General Surgery at the famed Charity Hospital in
New Orleans. His residency in Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery (Ear, Nose and Throat) was also completed in
New Orleans at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center.  Throughout his residency, he regularly
scored in the top 5-10% of all Otolaryngology residents on the annual inservice exam.

At the conclusion of his residency, Dr. Pero was selected for a fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive
Surgery at the University of Illinois at Chicago Medical School under the tutelage of Dean M. Toriumi, M.D..
Dr. Toriumi is a world-renowned Facial Plastic Surgeon with an emphasis on aesthetic and reconstructive surgery
of the nose and his fellowship is regarded as one of the premier fellowships in the world for the study of Facial
Plastic Surgery.

As an author of multiple peer-reviewed journal articles, textbook chapters and presentations at national and
international meetings, Dr. Pero has contributed significant scientific research to the fields of Facial Plastic &
Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery.

In addition to his private practice, Dr. Pero serves as an Assistant Clinical Professor with the University of Texas-
Southwestern Medical School Department of Otolaryngology/Head & Neck Surgery, where he trains the residents
in the field of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.  Dr. Pero lives with his wife, Roxanne, a local Obstetrician
and Gynecologist in Dallas.  They are active in their church and enjoy traveling, live music, playing with their dogs,
entertaining with friends and are avid CrossFitters, Dallas Cowboys, Texas Rangers, Stars & Mavericks fans.
