TRAINING

I grew up a native of Southern California. After completing my scientific studies at the University of California Berkeley, I was admitted to an Ivy League medical school, the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University in New York. My concurrent studies in figurative sculpture at the Manhattan School of Visual Arts integrated my perceptions of anatomy and form. After becoming a doctor, I completed eight additional years of rigorous surgical training, performing thousands of operative procedures and studying proven techniques of surgeons on both coasts before starting private practice as a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills.

I am fully trained in plastic and reconstructive surgery from the University of California Irvine and in general surgery from Lenox Hill Hospital and I am certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Additionally, I have co-authored a book chapter on aesthetic gluteal surgery, a manuscript in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive surgery, and presented my research at the national meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, The Rhinoplasty Society Meeting and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Rhinoplasty Symposium.

SPECIALTIES

Patients always ask me, “what is your specialty?” Without fail, I am delighted by this question as I perform many different procedures throughout the face and body. Some procedures that I really enjoy are facelifts, rhinoplasty, lip enhancement, breast surgery, abdominoplasty (mommy makeover), liposuction and gluteal augmentation. I feel it is necessary for my patients to have radiant skin and also provide essential skin care therapies. What thrills me the most about plastic surgery is that every patient is unique. So if you ask me, “What is your specialty Dr. Patel? – I will answer that my specialty is bringing out the best in YOU!!!
