SAGAR PATEL M.D.
Concierge Facial Plastic Surgeon
I am a fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon originally from Los Angeles, CA. I’ve spent time living in the United States, Australia, United Kingdom and the Middle East prior leaving home when I was 14 to attend boarding school at Phillips Exeter Academy in New Hampshire. At the age of 17, I was accepted into the highly selective Baccalaureate/M.D. program at the University of Southern California (USC), guaranteeing my admission into medical school upon completion of undergrad. As an undergraduate, I was highly involved in campus life, earning Order of the Palm recognition as well as serving as an elected Senator in the Undergraduate Student Government. At The USC Keck School of Medicine I really discovered my passion for facial plastic surgery and decided to go into residency in Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. I attended a five year residency program at Wayne State University in Michigan and was honored to serve as a chief resident in my final year.
I am very passionate about clinical research and have won numerous research and clinical awards while in residency and was selected into a fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery with the world-renowned Dr. Russell Kridel in Houston, TX. During fellowship, I published 7 papers on a variety of facial plastic surgery topics. I recently was also awarded the Ben Shuster Memorial Award for Best Research Paper in 2017 for my work on managing pain after rhinoplasty specifically looking at circumventing opioid abuse. Post fellowship, I took time off, traveled and while doing this spent time visiting surgeons in Miami, Beverly Hills and London to further refine my knowledge of the field.
In addition to English, I speak fluent Spanish and Gujarati. When not seeing my patients I enjoy cooking, hiking, playing golf, watching literally any sport on TV and traveling.
