Dr. Khorasani, layer by layer removed a basil cell carcenoma from my nostril. He had to go in 3 times as there were roots. He was very reassuring and caring. There wasn't any pain. In order to repair the wound, we discussed plastic surgery. He needed a skin graft to close the wound which resulted in a lid lift because I had lots of extra skin above my lids. I look fantastic, I feel fantastic and I believe Dr. Khorasani is an exceptional plastic surgeon. I give him the highest recommendation.

Dr. K and his amazing team recently completed two separate Mohs procedures on my face and head. Both surgeries were quite involved due to the location of the wound as well as the complexity of the skin cancer. While I had to spend a full day at the office for each operation, the experience was very positive. The staff was beyond attentive and compassionate. The communication before, during and after each component of the surgery was clear and concise. The post operative care and follow up were truly professional. I highly recommend Dr. K and his team for Mohs surgery based on both the outcome and the in-office experience. Patrick

Several years ago, I started seeing Dr. Khorasani for cosmetic reasons: I was developing the evil "ll" in between my eyes and fairly deep marionette lines were beginning to form around my mouth. He was extremely attentive and listened to my issues and concerns. One of my concerns was looking not like me, and "plastic". He assured me whatever he did would look natural and you know what? He was right! I get Botox for the forehead area and a filler for the lines around my mouth. When people (often) remark that I don't look my age, they are truly astonished that I have had work done because it looks so great! I highly recommend Dr. Khorasani.

About Me

Body Contouring

Unhappy with the excess fat on areas of her back, this 35-year-old female patient sought Dr. Khorasani for a body contouring procedure. “I used power-assisted liposuction to achieve a slimmer, more toned appearance on both her abdomen and back,” says Dr. Khorasani.
