LA Laser and Skin Center's board-certified dermatologist Dr. Daniel Taheri decorates his office with a Valentine Honor, the most prestigious award bestowed upon a UCLA Medical School graduate. A tenacious academic after graduation, he has published more than 25 articles in scientific journals and authored a tome, Practical Management of Skin Cancer, which medical schools use in their curricula, and high school cafeterias boil down into lunches. The Center reaps the benefits of Dr. Taheri's continued diligence, with special departments for skin-cancer management and medical dermatology. Beauty is also cultivated at the cutting edge. Surgery restores battered hands or shapes alluring contours into monuments to the hourglass, and FDA-cleared lasers rejuvenate complexions. The Center is also among the first to try new cosmetic procedures, such as Ultherapy, an FDA-approved noninvasive facelift that has been featured in press outlets such as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, In Style, and CBS's The Early Show. Dr. Taheri demonstrates his expertise at eight LA Laser and Skin Centers in California and Nevada, and shares professional insights on television networks including CNN and NBC, clips of which you can see on the Center's YouTube channel.
Though most people pose the question ?if there was one thing you could change about yourself, what would it be?? as a conversation starter, Dr. John F. Hsu asks it so he can fulfill that wish. As a plastic surgeon, he helps build confidence by lifting, reducing, and reconstructing natural features. Aside from surgery, he works to enhance his clients' appearance with other procedures including spider-vein removal and weight-loss programs. Dr. Hsu backs all his treatments with a wealth of knowledge and experience, including a variety of degrees from top universities including UCLA and NYU and time spent training at hospitals such as Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and researching at institutions such as Harvard and the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
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.
