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.
Dr. Genevieve A. MacDonald has built her plastic surgery practice around the belief that adjustments to a patient's looks can have a positive, life-changing impact on their self-esteem. She specializes in procedures that redefine both the face and body, from face lifts to rhinoplasty, and from tummy tucks to breast augmentation. She also performs liposuction and liposculpture, but is known just as well for her pleasant bedside manner.
Dr. Adrien Aiache's years of experience in plastic and reconstructive surgery has brought a high-profile list of clients to his Beverly Hills and Tarzana clinics. But the work his steady hands do isn’t only meant for celebrities. Born in Morocco and trained in France, Dr. Aiache has always been on the forefront of new cosmetic treatments for his patients through the years. He’s also devoted his time to teaching up-and-coming doctors his art at teaching hospitals and university classrooms. Among his youth-renewing procedures, a slate of nonsurgical treatments also includes chemical peels, laser procedures, and injections.
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.
To Samson Hair Restoration's physicians, hair restoration is equal measures of art and science. Although some surgeons concern themselves with follicle count and price per graft, the Samson team takes a collaborative, results-based approach, starting cases with artistic renderings of ideal scalps to give patients a clear idea of their post-op cranial canopy or what they would look like with fettuccini for hair. Staffers draw on the Quadrian hairline technique—which focuses on the front hairline to create a natural-looking coif—and plastic-surgery tricks to help to minimize donor-area scarring.
