About Dr. Bayati

Dr. Bayati's credentials attest to her commitment to the field of medicine, especially in Cosmetic and Reconstructive surgery. She was accepted to medical school directly from high school, only one of 45 students in the country with such distinction. She completed a special program for gifted students at BOSTON UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF MEDICINE and graduated with honors from medical school. She then moved to Springfield, Illinois where she completed an integrated training program in General Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. There was a great advantage to this program: instead of the usual two years of Plastic Surgery training that is traditionally accepted in this country, the participants in her program completed an extra year of training in the art of cosmetic surgery and difficult reconstructive problems in Breast cancer surgery as well as Burn surgery. This extra year of dedicated training was invaluable to her technical development in this artistic field of surgery. One of the greatest advantages is the fact that she trained in an era when the latest techniques of Endoscopic surgery with minor incisions and scarring were incorporated in her training. She also trained in the latest techniques of Laser resurfacing. Some of her older colleagues in the community did not have this advantage in their training since most of these advances in Cosmetic surgery are recent developments, which were perfected in her era of training and were non-existent in theirs. She is extremely adept in Endoscopic brow-lift and Endoscopic face-lift as well as the use of the multitude of latest lasers including the CO2 laser.

She moved back to California and completed an extra year of training in Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery at Loma Linda University Medical Center. This type of surgery is extremely delicate and involves detailed work on the fine structures of the hand and arm such as nerves and tendons using a surgical microscope. She is adept in microsurgical techniques that are necessary in difficult Reconstructive cases.
