Education and Training
Always looking to achieve success in his work, Dr. Khorsandi was admitted to the combined B.S./M.D. programs at Villanova University and attended Temple University School of Medicine where he took an early interest in plastic surgery. He started a student chapter of Operation Smile while there, performed numerous early elective rotations in plastic surgery, and was a research assistant to the Chairman of Plastic Surgery. Following medical school, he trained at the highly esteemed Ivy League surgery program at the University of Pennsylvania. This program selects only 6 candidates from a pool of over 1,000 accomplished medical students each year. During this time, he had the privilege of working at Pennsylvania Hospital, the country’s very first hospital, originally founded by Benjamin Franklin.
The advanced medical training Dr. Khorsandi completed took him to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) and the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), two institutions that are consistently ranked as the nation’s best hospitals by US News and World Reports. Dr. Khorsandi’s experience in these hospitals provided him with the fundamentals of his surgical career. His hard work and academic achievements led him to be accepted into the Plastic and Reconstructive Training Program at the Cleveland Clinic in Weston. He spent two years refining his skills in Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery, and became the program’s Chief Resident. He also co-authored a text chapter on wound healing and continued working on several research projects in the field of plastic surgery.
Looking to develop his skills further, Dr. Khorsandi went on to complete an Advanced Aesthetic Fellowship in Beverly Hills, where he learned how to perform some of the most challenging types of surgery, including revision plastic surgery. From there, he trained in Houston, TX in minimally invasive hand surgery and peripheral nerve reconstruction. Most recently, Dr. Khorsandi has pursued training in the groundbreaking techniques of migraine surgery.

"Love, Love, Love Dr. Khorsandi. Did my lips. They look awesome."
"Great surgeon. Caring, honest, professional. I had my carpal tunnel done, and then my breasts done by Dr. Khorsandi. We went to full C cup and they are spectacular. Can’t even see the scar! Would recommend him to anyone :-)"
"He did an amazing job. My co-worker went to him and also turned out great. I did my research and found Dr. Khorsandi. One of the girls in the office had her nose done by him last year and I have to say it really was an improvement. So seeing those results I felt confidant that I could get a similar result. I went to see him and found him to be extremely nice and very knowledgeable. He was able to describe in detail all the things that I could not put into words when describing what was wrong with my nose. It was like he was able to read my mind. He walked me through what he planned on doing and and saw some 3-D modeling pictures. I decided to take go all in. I highly recommend Dr. K. His training is by far the best and there is no one in Las Vegas that does anything even marginally close to his nose work. Trust me. Anther friend of mine went to one of the other guys in town a few years ago, who does a lot of breast and body work and now needs a second surgery to fix her nose. I would want it done the right way the first time."
"I just had a revision rhinoplasty and I am thrilled with the results. My last surgery left my nose looking deformed. It was crooked, had a very noticeable dent on one side, had a hump that hadn't been there previously, my nostrils were very uneven and I had a deviated septum. I was very nervous to go through the entire process again but I am so thankful that I did! Dr. Khorsandi is amazing! My nose looks better than I could have ever imagined and it's still swollen so it will get even more defined with time.My husband and I were both very impressed with Dr. Khorsandi upon meeting him. He was able to describe in great detail exactly what was necessary to fix the issues I had and he made some suggestions on how to make my nose look better overall. He showed us how it would likely look on the 3-D vector system which I think is an invaluable tool. He has extensive knowledge when it comes to revisions and that is of the utmost importance because revision rhinoplasty is very complex and the most difficult of all plastic surgeries to perform. He is also the nicest and most down to Earth doctor I have ever encountered. He and his Practice Consultant, Catherine are the type of people you are having so much fun with that you don't want to leave the office. I was able to schedule my surgery for the week following the consult and Both Dr. Khorsandi and Catherine always responded very promptly and pleasantly when we contacted them regarding the many questions we had. Catherine would even answer my emails on weekends and late at night. Dr. Khorsandi reviewed everything right before surgery and made me feel very relaxed with his great sense of humor. When he removed my splint, stents and stitches with the help of the fun and friendly Josh, he did it so that it was easy and painless because he made the effort to make it the way. It isn't always so simple, it certainly wasn't after my first rhinoplasty. I highly recommend Dr. Khorsandi. He is an exceptional surgeon and he and his staff take great care in making the patient happy."
"Dr Khorsandi is the best!!! The MOST PROFESSIONAL and also kindest doctor. I went to 3 other consults about breast revision from old saline inplants where one had ruptured and he not only saw me right away but he took the most time in discussing my options and I feel his recommendations were right compared to others consults. He worked around my schedule and my husband liked him as well!! Dr K's staff is so kind and professional and always attentive to my needs and questions. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. K!!!! My breast revision was awesome and looked 10 times better than my past. He carries all the latest technology and I trust him completely now. I will NEVER use another plastic surgeon! Dr K has me for life!!"
