Board-Certified Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Fardad Forouzanpour (“Dr. Fardad”) is a world-renowned physician whose work speaks for itself. Founder of the Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgical Group, Dr. Fardad currently does double duties overseeing his own medical practice and running a Surgical Fellowship training plastic and cosmetic surgeons from all over the world. Dr. Fardad’s passion for medicine developed early in life. Inspired by the work of his father, a Jewish doctor who regularly donated medical services to the poor, Dr. Fardad set out to become a local physician in his native Iran. The political and religious climates in Iran interfered. Revolution was everywhere, and anti-Semitism was rampant. After finding bullet holes in the door of his medical office, Dr. Fardad’s father made the courageous decision to move his young family to America. In less than two years, Dr. Fardad was accepted into UCLA’s prestigious Pre-Med Program. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology. Dr. Fardad attended medical school at Midwestern University in Chicago. He initially studied pediatrics, but fell in love with surgery and aesthetics and its ability to dramatically improve people’s lives. Dr. Fardad performed five years of Surgical Residencies in General Surgery and Trauma Surgery at Chicago’s top hospitals including Edgwater, Thorak, and Cook County Hospital. He also served as Chief Surgical Resident at Columbia Olympia Fields Osteopathic Hospital, Trauma and Medical Center. Dr. Fardad completed his first Fellowship in Facial and Body Aesthetic and Cosmetic Surgery under former President of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, Dr Richard Caleel. He then returned to Southern California to perform a second Fellowship, with Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Bernard Koire. In 1998, Dr. Fardad founded his own shingle, The Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgical Group. The full-service surgery center offers non-invasive procedures along with breast augmentations, lifts & reductions, eyelash transfers, rhinoplasties, liposuctions/liposculpture, abdominoplasties, and vaginoplasties, among others. Dr. Fardad has set the standard for excellence in cosmetic surgery. Boarded in General Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Fardad is one of only three physicians in Southern California authorized by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery to operate a Fellowship Program. He trains plastic and cosmetic surgeons from all across the globe. Dr. Fardad is also the inventor of the Umbilical Locator, a surgical device he designed to help surgeons locate the belly button during abdominoplasties. A common challenge for cosmetic and plastic surgeons, the Umbilical Locator has resolved a medical problem for which plastic surgeons had often found themselves being sued. Following in his late father’s footsteps, Dr. Fardad regularly donates his medical services to those in need. He works with the Los Angeles based domestic violence charity, Safe Passage, providing free surgical makeovers to abuse victims to help restore their self-confidence. Dr. Fardad is a member of the California Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the American Society of Cosmetic Breast Surgery, the American College of Osteopathic Surgeons Society, the California Medical Association, the Osteopathic Physician and Surgeons of California, the American Osteopathic Association, the Los Angeles County Medical Association and is a Diplomat of the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners.
