From there, she enrolled at Yeshiva University’s Albert Einstein School of Medicine, and then went on to a combined residency in plastic surgery at the University of Southern California. She always makes it clear to her patients that plastic surgery does not complete a life, because happiness comes from within and from working on yourself. Thanks to her honesty, dedication, and meticulous eye to achieve natural looks, Dr. Nazarian is known as one of the best plastic surgeons in the US.
