Dr. Reza Sadrian has over 20 years of surgical experience and the distinct honor of being one of the only plastic surgeons in the country to hold dual certifications in plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as oral and maxillofacial surgery. It is this extensive experience that gives him such a unique perspective when dealing with complex facial cosmetic surgery issues and that makes him such a valuable part of our team of La Jolla plastic surgeons.
Dr. Sadrian says that his training has given him a unique understanding of cosmetic surgery. “My strong medical training and my love of art contribute to every procedure I do. My additional training and experience in oral and maxillofacial surgery, reconstructive plastic surgery, as well as treating trauma patients has truly enhanced my cosmetic surgery skills.”
Dr. Sadrian is a diplomat of the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, as well as the California Society of Plastic Surgeons and San Diego International Society of Plastic Surgeons. He is also a staff surgeon at Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla.
According to Dr. Sadrian, one of the most rewarding aspects of his practice is having the opportunity to improve people’s lives: “Every day, I change lives and make people feel better about themselves. I help them bring out the internal beauty they have. What other profession can be this rewarding?”
Since each patient is so unique, Dr. Sadrian treats each procedure individually. One of the things that make Dr. Sadrian stand out is the time that he takes to listen to each of his patients. Before making any recommendations about procedures, Dr. Sadrian is careful to listen to the goals of each of his patients. He also engages in extensive follow-up visits to make sure that each patient is adjusting and to listen to any concerns that he or she may have.
When he is not working with patients, Dr. Sadrian enjoys being spending his down time near the water. He says, “I love anything you can do in or near the water.”
