Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Hisham Seify holds many titles throughout the medical world. He is a fellow to the American College of Surgeons, a diplomate to the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and an assistant clinical professor to the students at UCLA's School of Medicine and the University of California at Irvine's Medical Center. He also travels internationally to perform surgeries and lecture to fellow surgeons. But his primary role is medical director to the staff and patients at Newport Plastic.
There, his expertise in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery extends to everything from breast augmentation to oculoplastic surgery. However, going under the knife is not the only option for patients. Dr. Seify and his team always explain all treatment options to their patients to ensure plastic surgery is right for them. The staff also performs noninvasive med-spa treatments such as microdermabrasion, laser hair removal, and ultherapy, a body-contouring technique that uses ultrasound, such as sound from an ultraloud stereo.
