Babak Dadvand, MD
What is your favorite quote or saying?
We all have hardships in life, some moreso than others. This saying is one that I say to myself silently in those times. It is very calming and puts things in perspective: "This too shall pass..."
What makes your specialties the right fields of medicine for you?
I come from a fine arts background with a concentration in oil painting, and plastic surgery gives me the ability to think outside the box and be creative in my approach to surgery. I was a general surgeon before becoming a plastic surgeon but general surgery didn't appeal to my artistic sensibilties. Aesthetic surgery truly is a fusion of science and art. I feel that my eye is trained to see things other surgeons do not, and this is a great tool that only serves to benefit my patients.
Finish this sentence: If I weren't a doctor I would be___.
an astronaut. I have always had a fascination with space and space exploration.
Can you tell us in your own words what you consider a perfect outcome of a surgical procedure?
A perfect outcome is based on the patient's satisfaction level and the surgeon's satisfaction level. When you know you have made a real impact on your patient's quality of life with the surgery there is nothing more satisfying.
What is your favorite procedure to perform and why?
Although I don't have a favorite, one of my favorite body procedures is tummy tuck because the results are so dramatic and the patients are so grateful. One of my favorite facial surgeries is neck lifts because it also makes such a difference in how patients feel and look at themselves.
