NewBeauty Top Doctor Since 2022

Dr. Daniel A. Hatef

Plastic Surgeon
6200 Highway 100, Suite 101, Nashville, TN, 37205
A Commitment to the Finest Results.


Recognized as one of Nashville’s top doctors by the American Institute of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Daniel A. Hatef has gained a loyal clientele base in seemingly record time. “Being named as one of the “Ten Best Plastic Surgeons” in the state after just three years in practice means so much to me,” says Dr. Hatef. “I work hard to deliver top-notch care, and to be honored like this is amazing.” Taking into account the emotional aspect of the transformations he performs, he ensures his patients are educated and prepared for the journies that lie ahead. “With my revision rhinoplasty patients having already gone through one or two procedures elsewhere, they may need a lot of hand-holding, which I’m happy to do. Patients undergoing a revision tend to have more swelling and more anxiety about that result.” It’s this specialized attention that ensures his practice continues to grow. “I credit our referral rate to a combination of happy patients with the best results,” adds the doctor.

A Minute With

  1. What are your most requested procedures?

    Injectables, facelifts, rhinoplasties
    and breast augmentations

  2. Why do you employ a less-is-more approach?

    Whenever we, as plastic surgeons,
    try to use injectables alone to
    recreate youth and “erase” lines,
    we risk filling too much and creating
    an unfavorable look. With injectables,
    less truly is more

  3. What surgical advancements are you most excited about?

    I’ve always been an advocate of the
    lip lift and perioral rejuvenation.
    There has been a huge increase
    in our specialty’s attention to this
    area. I have been a thought leader in
    Nashville when it comes to perioral
    rejuvenation, and I’m excited to see
    the improvement in results that
    come with this

  4. Career-defining patient

    My practice got an amazing jump
    start when I did a facelift on a former
    Playboy centerfold. She got a great
    result and told everyone in the music
    industry. It catapulted me to a volume
    of plastic surgery work that most
    people don’t see until they’re 15 years
    in. I’m blessed to have her as a patient

  5. What do you love most about your profession?

    From the start of my training,
    I have been interested in anatomy
    and beauty. I led the team that
    discovered the fat compartments
    of the face, which is the anatomical
    research that guides what we do
    now with fillers. I do thousands of
    expertly curated injections a year

  6. What are you best known for?

    Dramatic, yet natural-looking results

  7. My dream innovation

    Customized facial implants

  8. What upcoming procedure are you really excited about?

    Breast augmentation mastopexy
    will go from being something plastic
    surgeons consistently get inconsistent
    results with to being an operation
    with beautiful, predictable results.
    I know this has happened in my
    hands, and it’s so rewarding that
    I am achieving these results in such
    a consistent fashion

  9. Three words that best describe me

    Obsessive, artistic,

  10. How i would spend extra time in a day

    Seeing live country music
    shows in Nashville
