Bardia Amirlak, M.D.
Bardia Amirlak, M.D., who is trained in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, is dedicated to optimizing results for each patient he treats. He combines a commitment to offering state-of–the-art care with individual attention to understanding a patient’s long-term objectives. His expertise in plastic surgery translates into results that not only look natural for his patients, but that are safe and effective.
We set the pace and protocols for plastic surgery across the globe. One of the major reasons is our extensive research into new plastic surgery techniques and technology.”
One of Dr. Amirlak’s primary areas of research involves facial aging and shape. He is investigating environmental factors on aging, fat grafting for the face and body, as well as three-dimensional analysis of the face and nose (VECTRA) to enhance the results of surgical correction. This background contributes significantly to his skill to tailor aesthetic surgeries for patients.
When talking with patients about the objectives they want to achieve with aesthetic procedures, he evaluates if nonsurgical and surgical cosmetic approaches will achieve the best possible results for them. He offers a full range of options for the eyes, face, and body – including body contouring procedures, breast augmentation, complex rhinoplasty, and facial rejuvenation techniques such as face lift, neck lift, fat grafting, eyelid surgery, Botox, and Ulthera (ultrasound face lift).
In addition to cosmetic treatments, he performs complex reconstructive procedures to restore a more a natural appearance to the face and body and/or improve function after a traumatic injury or illness. This ranges from breast reconstruction for cancer patients to nasal surgery to correct breathing problems.
For breast reconstruction, Dr. Amirlak offers a comprehensive spectrum of options including DIEP, SGAP, and other perforator flaps to create new breasts that look natural. He is one of the few plastic surgeons in the country using the non-implant-based BRAVA Bra/fat injections, which can be used for breast reconstruction as well as augmentation.
Dr. Amirlak also treats adult and pediatric patients with hand and peripheral nerve disorders, such as carpal tunnel and chronic migraines. He has worked with the pioneer of migraine surgery with extensive experience in this area. He does surgical (trigger release) and nonsurgical (Botox) procedures for treatment of intractable migraine headaches. His patients have reported great success and lasting relief from these procedures.
Dr. Amirlak is now offering surgery not only for migraine patients, but also for chronic headaches, new daily persistent headaches (NDPH), and occipital neuralgia.
He is extremely proud of how he was able to save a Navy veteran’s forearm using a rare transfusion technique. The patient’s arm was amputated in a work-related accident. Dr. Amirlak was able to save the arm and restore its function.
