Jack Gunter, MD, age 79, died Tuesday, July 11, in Dallas. He is survived by his wife, Deborah; five daughters; three sons-in-law; and seven grandchildren.

Dr. Gunter, founder of the Gunter Center for Aesthetics & Cosmetic Surgery, which he ran until retirement in 2014, was widely recognized as a true pioneer in the advancement of rhinoplasty procedures and a champion of the open approach to rhinoplasty.

In the early 1980s, Dr. Gunter identified a need in plastic surgery training – and in 1983, he and Robert Oneal, MD, held the first of the rhinoplasty-focused training sessions that would soon become known as the world-renowned Dallas Rhinoplasty Symposium, which celebrated its 34th year last March.
