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. Amid the sea of plastic surgeons is Dr. Ghavami, a plastic surgeon who has strived to provide his patients with honest and educational consultations and surgical care. 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.

If Dr. Ghavami believes that a patient’s desired results are unhealthy or unrealistic, no amount of money will persuade operation. These ethical values go a long way in the plastic surgery profession and ultimately lead to more satisfied patients and improved outcomes.
