Dr. Tavoussi combines the Art and Science of Cosmetic Plastic Surgery to obtain unparallel results for his patients. His practice philosophy is to recreate the natural beauty of the human body by restoring natural harmony of shape and form with structure and function.
He has successfully restored the natural beauty to patient’s face in a number of very complex secondary procedures where there has been disruption of form and function leading to disharmony (see secondary rhinoplasty photographs).
