About Dr. DeRosa

Dr. DeRosa devotes her practice to facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, with a special interest in rhinoplasty (both primary and revision). Dr. DeRosa works diligently to address the needs of her patients in the safest and most meticulous manner possible, keeping her patients’ needs her top priority. In procedures such as rhinoplasty, she believes that optimizing function is equally as important as aesthetics. She strives to achieve natural results that will stand the test of time.

After graduating college with a Bachelor in Science with distinction from the University of Virginia, Dr. DeRosa obtained a Masters in Science at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute/SUNY @ Buffalo. She completed her Medical Degree at SUNY @ Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, graduating magna cum laude. Dr. DeRosa underwent Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery residency training at Boston University, acting as Administrative Chief Resident during the final year. She then pursued intensive fellowship training in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Dr. Jaimie DeRosa is a double-board certified Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon.

In 2008, she was recruited to the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary to further develop the Harvard-based otolaryngology residency training program within the division of facial plastic surgery and is an Assistant Professor in Otology and Laryngology at the Harvard Medical School. Seeking a more-personalized, boutique approach to caring for her patients, she entered into private practice. She maintains admitting and operating privileges at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. She also continues to be involved in teaching students at various institutions and is also an Adjunct Clinical Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology at Boston University School of Medicine.

Dr. DeRosa has been an invited lecturer both throughout the United States and abroad. She also is actively involved in both the American Board of Otolaryngology and American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery board certification processes and acts as the Chair of both the Fellowship Curriculum Compendium Subcommittee and the Women in Facial Plastic Surgery Committee for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. She is also Co-Chair of the 2017 AAFPRS Annual Fall Meeting.
