Dr. Saul Lahijani draws upon extensive experience and education as he works to help clients achieve their aesthetic dreams. He began his education at USC, where he earned his undergraduate degree before obtaining a doctorate of medicine at Ross University School of Medicine, finishing at the top of his class. He next performed several residencies at Yale and Vanderbilt, before staying an international fellowship in Barcelona. Today, he welcomes patients into his clinic for non-invasive and surgical treatments, wielding lasers and scalpels to sculpt bodies with the precision of a bionic Michelangelo.
Prior to taking the helm of Beverly Hills Institute of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Soheil Lahijani first honed his craft at some of the top programs in the country and by the side of international surgical stars. What he learned as the chief resident at Yale University-Saint Mary's Hospital and in the operating rooms of Vanderbilt University and exam rooms of Barcelona, Spain, shaped him into a skilled plastic surgeon.
Before he ever picks up a needle, scalpel, or can of spray glitter, he and his staff educate prospective patients on their cosmetic options and counsel them on realistic expected results. Only then does Dr. Lahijani set about performing face-lifts and rhinoplasty, augmenting and lifting breasts, and reshaping physiques with liposuction.

He performs anti-aging procedures and corrects aesthetic imperfections with a seemingly limitless variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures.

He also continues his good works in the United States, providing information about post-reconstructive treatments to breast-cancer survivors.
