Jason Nellis is a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in the Department of Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery at Johns Hopkins. He grew up in Maryland and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Maryland, then earned his medical degree at the University of Virginia. Subsequently, he completed residency training in otolaryngology–head and neck surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

After completing residency, Dr. Nellis spent a year pursuing advanced training in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Johns Hopkins and in Japan with Satoru Nagata, further broadening his expertise in microtia reconstruction, facial reanimation, rhinoplasty, and microvascular head and neck reconstruction. He went on to complete an American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery fellowship at the University of Minnesota with former academy president Peter Hilger and Harley Dresner, which included specialty training in rhinoplasty, aesthetic facial plastic surgery, total nasal reconstruction, Mohs reconstructive surgery, microvascular head and neck reconstruction, and facial reanimation. This fellowship also encompassed pediatric head and neck reconstruction, including otoplasty and cleft lip and palate repair. He has extensive training in cosmetic facial surgery, including facelift, blepharoplasty, brow lift and other facial rejuvenation procedures.

Dr. Nellis is passionate about international mission work helping patients with facial deformities, including pediatric facial deformities, such as cleft lip and palate, and adults with congenital and traumatic facial deformities. His research interests include examining social perceptions of facial deformity and investigating objective outcomes in cosmetic facial plastic surgery and facial reconstruction to better help patients seeking to improve their facial appearance through facial plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Nellis is dedicated to providing excellent care to patients at the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center in Bethesda and Sibley Memorial Hospital.

He is fluent in Spanish and Italian.
