The ever-increasing popularity of plastic surgery can largely be attributed to the diverse range of procedures available. Everything from fat grafting to complex reconstruction/enhancement or revision surgery is performed by plastic surgeons that must use both aesthetic judgment and extensive surgical training to better an individual’s appearance and function. Over time, Beverly Hills has become a popular location for plastic surgery, with countless surgeons operating on a diverse patient population.

He has been chosen as an expert commentator for numerous media outlets and publications. His media appearances include The Tyra Show, The Doctors, Extra, Inside Edition, Fox News, Discovery Channel, Telemundo, CBS News, and KTLA. More important than media appearances, however, are Dr. Ghavami’s peer-reviewed scientific publications. While media and web marketing are a necessary entity of today’s plastic surgery practices, it is up to the patient to carefully evaluate all aspects of their surgeon’s qualifications to determine if they have chosen the right surgeon for them.
