Meet the doctor
Dr. Compton completed his residency training in Otolaryngology – Head and Neck surgery at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport, LA and trained with one of the most experienced rhinoplasty surgeons in the world in 2012. He then completed his American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS) fellowship with Washington University School of Medicine at the prestigious Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, MO in 2013. This advanced fellowship training focused on both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures including facelift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and rhinoplasty (nasal surgery). He then started private practice in East Lansing
in 2013-2015 before bringing his talent to the Detroit area. He joined Oakland ENT in mid 2015 with Dr McBrien and Dr Sobol. He is a clinical instructor at William Beaumont Hospital and Oakland University School of Medicine, educating both ENT and Oral Surgery resident physicians.
Dr. Compton is a natural artist who started developing his gift as a child and has pursued this throughout his life. He is an award winning artist, enjoying many different mediums including photography, charcoal, acrylic paints, pencil, and pointillism using pen and ink. His artistic eye and attention to detail allows him to excel in facial aesthetic and reconstructive surgery.
During medical school, Dr. Compton participated in a medical exchange program in which he lived in a small city south of Nagoya, Japan. During his 5 week stay, he trained in transplant surgery and pediatric oncology services. During this time he also visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, Kyoto, Tokyo and concluded his trip by climbing through the night to the summit of Mount Fuji to see the sunrise.
