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.

Only then does Dr. Lahijani set about performing face-lifts and rhinoplasty, augmenting and lifting breasts, and reshaping physiques with liposuction.
