Specialties

Dr. Babak J Mehrara has the following 2 specialties

    A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
    Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
    The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.

Dr Mehrara is not only a phenomal PS but he is a kind human being. He is definitely on point about what the outcome will be. I had two revisions by him and he made sure that I was happy with my results. He exceeded my expectations with my last revision. As a breast cancer patient, this is very important. I would highly recommend him as a plastic surgeon. Thank you Dr Mehrara was everything that you have done for me and all the other women you help.

The Absolute Best

An excellent surgeon and a true artist! Dr. Mehrara did my expander, swap, fat grafting and native side augment for symmetry. The results are truly beautiful and the best I have seen in an MX reconstruction - much better than I had dared to hope for. I could not be happier with the aesthetic results thus far. I have one surgery to go to reconstruct the nipple and some additional fat grafting. I have every confidence that Dr. Mehrara will do an excellent job as he has thus far. Cancer is a jarring experience, but he has been caring and skillful enough to have made all the difference in putting me back together. I look even better than I did before, and while I would gladly trade the results for a body that never had cancer, it is a nice consolation to look good and feel whole. I know that I could not have made a better choice in reconstructive surgeons. Truly the best!

Amazing Doctor

Dr. Mehrara and his team at Sloan, are amazing. I had a bilateral mastectomy for my 39th birthday and Dr. Mehrara did my multi-phase reconstruction. He took the time to explain all of my options and helped me to make a decision I was most comfortable with. I have moved several times while undergoing my reconstruction and I can tell you that every doctor I have seen (all in top rated, big city hospitals) is amazed at how beautiful my reconstruction/implants look. Dr. Mehrara coordinated my care so I could get expanded in the cities where I was residing. I flew back and forth to him for all the big surgeries. My scars are barely visible, I healed well, and my implants look amazing. Doctors can not believe that I had a bilateral mastectomy, that is how amazing a surgeon Dr. Mehrara is. I highly recommend him and would tell anyone I loved to go to him. Sloan Kettering does a great job coordinating your care if you are flying in from out of state, which I was. Dr. Mehrara is an amazing doctor. I agree with others, that he easily could be in California making a fortune, but the fact that he chooses to help people in need, recover from horrible diagnoses, tells you about his spirit. He is kind, compassionate, knowledgeable, and extremely skilled. I am so incredibly blessed that I found him.
