What is your typical process for working with a new patient?

Surgery is personalized for each new patient; who is treated individually given their unique needs and desires. Consultations take place at his boutique office on Newbury Street; while surgeries are performed at either the Eastern Massachusetts Surgery Center (EMSC) or Mass Eye & Ear. Dr. Alsarraf takes the time to listen to each patient to hear specifically what they are looking for; before they decide together on which procedures best suit their individual needs. It is not unusual for Dr. Alsarraf to suggest a patient wait a few more years before having surgery; he never pushes a procedure or tries to sell someone something they just aren't ready for yet.

What advice would you give a patient looking to find a provider in your specialty?

Trust your face to a facial plastic surgeon; someone who specializes exclusively in facial cosmetic surgery.

What inspired your passion for your profession?

Well done surgery can bring so much happiness to a patient; while still looking natural and un-operated upon.

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

The lower face-lift; neck and jawline lift; that helps a patient look rested and refreshed. Eyelid surgery that gets rid of the tired look and brightens the whole face. Rhinoplasty that looks natural but enough of a change that everyone thinks you look fabulous.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever received from a patient?

Patients will travel to see Dr. Alsarraf from New York; California; and Florida to avoid the pulled; overdone look. When they return home; their friends will often tell them they have the most natural; best results they have ever seen. One patient recently arrived back in Los Angeles following her surgery here in Boston. The next day; two of her friends booked trips to see Dr. Alsarraf at The Newbury Center.

What makes your practice stand apart?

Dr. Alsarraf treats patients from all over New England; the US; and the world who want the surgeon who wrote the book on facial rejuvenation; and who focuses exclusively on cosmetic surgery of the face; nose; and neck.

How many years have you been in business?

23 years

What do patients have to say about you?

"Dr. Alsarraf is an artist-- I've been to several plastic surgeons and had several procedures over the years; but none have compared to the work that Dr. Alsarraf did for me this year. His attention to detail is amazing; and I am 100% happy with the results. My face looks refreshed but not overdone or unnatural; and all of my friends think I look at least ten years younger. Thank you Dr. A!"

"I had surgery with Dr. Alsarraf (eye-lift and face-lift) several years ago and couldn't be happier with the results-- I look at least 10 years younger but still natural; which is exactly what I wanted (and; by the way; he also made my lips look great after several other doctors couldn't). My son had his nose done with him too; and it came out exactly how he wanted. I've referred all of my friends to The Newbury Center as well; and they are all just as thrilled as I am with their results. Now we all go there for our Botox and fillers; and Dr. Alsarraf does a fabulous job with those too. They may not be the least expensive plastic surgery office in town; but I think it is worth every penny-- I have other friends who have learned the hard way that you definitely get what you pay for. I would recommend Dr. Alsarraf to anyone-- in my opinion he is just what you want in a plastic surgeon."

"I had a face-lift about six months ago with Dr. Alsarraf and the result is exactly what I wanted. I look ten years younger and everyone tells me that I look great; but no one knows I had plastic surgery. All of my neck sagging is gone and so are my jowls. I just don't know why anyone in Boston would go anywhere else. Thanks; Dr. A. You'll be seeing all of my friends."
