Dr. Baron completed a clinical fellowship in Istanbul, Turkey assisting Dr. Sureyya Seneldir, a world-renowned rhinoplasty surgeon and one of the best in structural rhinoplasty. During this period, he learned the use of instruments developed by Dr. Seneldir known as Magic Saw, which allow performing osteotomies (fractures in the nasal bones) that generate less bruising and less postoperative pain. During his nose surgeries, he also incorporates piezoelectric bone surgery, which is a process that uses piezoelectric vibrations in the application of bone tissue cutting, thus reducing soft tissue damage.
