MAAN M. KATTASH, MD, FRCS (Ed.)
Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon


BIOGRAPHICAL SYNOPSIS
After graduating from medical school with honors, Dr. Kattash completed his residency in general surgery and passed his exams becoming a fellow in the prestigious Royal college of Surgeons from Edinburgh in Scotland, United Kingdom. Subsequently, he underwent extensive training for 3 years as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon in the United Kingdom. In the United States he pursued further training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas. During this period, he was active in research and academic plastic surgery. He continued to contribute to the field of Plastic surgery and was awarded numerous awards. His research contributions can be viewed in many scientific journals.

Dr Kattash can offer his patients new innovative techniques in nose reshaping and facial aesthetic surgery such as midface lifts, feather face lifts and "volumetric" facelifts. He developed special interest in breast surgery such as various approaches for breast augmentation, lifting, and reduction. Over the years he modified his techniques in body contouring surgery such as liposuction, body lifts and state of the art tummy tucks.

His background in training, research, and teaching; combined with twenty years of clinical experience enables him to offer his patients the knowledge, expertise and compassion they deserve. He believes in achieving a sensitive understanding of their aesthetic goals and is committed to addressing the personal objectives of his patients.
