Now honored as one of Hollywood’s top five plastic surgeons, Dr. Payman Simoni has offered no shortage of contributions to his field. He earned an undergraduate degree at Yeshiva University and his medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York in 1997. From there, he served as a general surgical resident at Birmingham Hospital through the University of Alabama, where he pursued a specialty in face and nose surgery and successfully completed training in Facial Reconstructive Surgery, as well as Otolaryngology–Head and Neck Surgery. With his outstanding work, he received double board certification, positioning him among the most qualified facial plastic surgeons in Los Angeles.
Early in his training
On his way to becoming one of the leading nose surgeons Los Angeles has to offer, Dr. Simoni was determined to become a specialist who excelled in the latest techniques within the field. In an effort to perfect his skills and further expand his knowledge, he studied under some of the world’s foremost innovators in the plastic surgery and rhinoplasty fields, including Dr. Gaylon McCoulough, Dr. Russel Kridel, Dr. Louis Vasconez, Dr. Artemus Cox, Dr. Daniel Rousso, and Dr. Jeffrey Klein, whom invented tumescent liposuction. Soon after, Dr. Simoni provided the industry (and patients) with several groundbreaking innovations and techniques of his own.
Minimum Downtime Maximum Results
Dr. Simoni has been honored as one of Hollywood’s top five plastic surgeons, a distinction reserved only for leading innovators in the field.
In perfecting minimally invasive methods for non-surgical nose jobs, facial rejuvenation, and other common procedures, he has eliminated common risks associated with general anesthesia, while also delivering superior results. Using local anesthesia, he has made surgery a possibility for patients who cannot tolerate or would rather avoid general anesthesia. Furthermore, his use of local anesthesia makes it possible for patients to return home to recover almost immediately after their procedure has been completed. His minimally invasive approach means recovery time is greatly reduced--most patients will return to work within four to seven days.
Dr. Simoni is a trusted choice for Beverly Hills and Los Angeles’ high profile residents. His delicate surgical methods produce remarkable results, without the weeks of seclusion usually required before returning to normal social and/or work related activities. Fully understanding the need for discretion and privacy, he is able to ensure patients are camera ready in a much shorter period of time than other surgeons.
Dr. Simoni has spent over a decade perfecting his surgical skills through specialized training under the most prominent facial surgeons in America. His passion for perfection is reflected in the outstanding results he achieves for his patients. As a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, he is also one of a few specialists with the experience to restore beauty and function to patients who are not happy with the results of their primary surgery.
Dr. Simoni encourages anyone considering rhinoplasty to become as educated as possible before choosing their rhinoplasty surgeon. He provides extensive information on his website and empowers patients and prospective patients to use it as a base for their initial consultations. Asking questions is the hallmark of an informed patient and Dr. Simoni is delighted to answer any questions his patients may have before making recommendations.
Dr. Simoni is proud to be one of the top specialists in rhinoplasty. In addition to being a leading nose surgeon with thousands of rhinoplasties successfully performed, he has extensive expertise in facial plastics, including the following procedures:
- Eyelid Lift (Blepharoplasty)
- Facelift (Rhytidectomy)
- Mid-Facelift (Mini Facelift for Younger Patients)
- Endoscopic Brow Lift (Forehead Lift)
- Fat Transfer/ Facial Fat Grafting
- Cosmetic Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
- Tumescent Liposuction
