Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon
Dr. Naderi is double board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS) and the American Board of Otolaryngology (ABO) / American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). Both of these institutions are nationally and internationally recognized by the medical community, as opposed to several other boards that were created later and grant certification to cosmetic and aesthetic medical practitioners without the required years of committed surgical preparation. Any plastic surgeon, and especially a facial plastic surgeon that you choose should have no less than six years of rigorous surgical training and be board certified by either the American Board of Plastic Surgery or the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
Having grown up in Newton, Massachusetts, Dr. Naderi attended Boston University, where he acquired his Bachelor’s & Master’s Degree. He went on to receive a Medical Degree (M.D.) from the Medical College of Pennsylvania – Hahnemann University School of Medicine (now known as Drexel University College of Medicine) in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Afterward, he went through an exhausting General Surgery Internship before completing a dynamic surgical residency in the field of Head & Neck Surgery, an area that is both esteemed and coveted. Dr. Naderi had completed over 4,000 cases as a primary surgeon by the time he had finished his chief year.
Once he had been completely trained and board certified to perform plastic surgery of the face and neck, he was also certified by both the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) & the American Board of Otolaryngology. He then decided to train further in an accredited and competitive Fellowship in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery with Dr. Stephen W. Perkins, who is one of the top cosmetic facial plastic surgeons in the world. Dr. Perkins is also an author and a teacher that is recognized all over the world, serving as a past president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). While pursuing his Fellowship, Dr. Naderi opened his own practice devoted to facial plastic surgery of the nose (rhinoplasty) and surgery to combat the effects of aging.

Rhinoplasty and Revision Rhinoplasty Specialist
For years, patients have trusted Dr. Naderi based on his unique distinction and dedication to being a Rhinoplasty and Revision Rhinoplasty specialist, as well as an expert in facial injections with Botox and dermal fillers.
Rhinoplasty and Revision Rhinoplasty has become a fundamental part of Dr. Naderi’s practice. He continually works to meet the outcome that his patients desire and ensures that the nose continues to function at its maximum capacity with breathing. Dr. Naderi was the first and continues to be one of only a few plastic surgeons in the United States that exclusively works on the nose. He is amongst a small percentage of surgeons that have undergone intensive and highly specific instruction to receive a strong background in rhinoplasty, a topic to which he has written and been published on countless occasions.
Dr. Naderi believes that being an expert means admitting there are other people better than you at performing procedures that you do not routinely perform. That is why Dr. Naderi founded a center that consists of a team of plastic surgery and dermatology specialists. Despite having a team of ultra-specialized physicians, we often times will encourage patients to obtain a second or third opinion from other local or national experts in order to feel completely confident with their provider. Some of our nationally recognized physicians that we refer to include Dr. Ira Papel at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Dr. Dean Toriumi in Chicago IL, and Dr. Paul Nassif in Beverly Hills, CA. In the local region, we have recommended referrals to Dr. David Berman, Dr. Michael Brown, Dr. Phillip Chang, Dr. Andrew Goldberg, Dr. Christopher Hess, Dr. Marwan Khalifeh, Dr. Peter Klainer, Dr. Mitchel Krieger, Dr. Talal Munasifi, Dr. Behzad Parva, Dr. Amer Saba, and Dr. Navin Singh.
A Member of American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
Dr. Naderi is both active and an officer within the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS), a fellow of the prestigious American College of Surgeons (FACS), and a Diplomat of the American Board of Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery and the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS). Dr. Naderi also serves the ABFPRS as an Oral Board Examiner during their taxing yearly diplomate examination in Washington, D.C.
He is a member of many other medical associations such as the American Medical Association, the Triologic Society, the Iranian Medical Society of Greater Washington, D.C., the Virginia Medical Society, the American Academy of Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery, and the Iranian-American Medical Association.
Besides being the founder of two bustling plastic surgery practices in Chevy Chase, Maryland, and in Reston, Virginia (Northern Virginia), Dr. Naderi often writes articles about plastic surgery for the local media in newspapers, journals, and magazines. The topics of these articles typically focus on nasal surgery and facial rejuvenation; they are aimed at the public as well as the local medical community. In the midst of his hectic agenda, Dr. Naderi also takes a moment to answer questions and respond to comments from patients all over the world on his blog, a featured part of the Realself.com website. Previously a Medi-spa director, he imparts his experience to help prepare skin-care professionals and Master Aestheticians for the field at Virginia’s most highly regarded Aesthetics and Beauty College, Yvonne de Vilar.
National and International Patients
Many of the patients that Dr. Naderi sees come from a variety of distant locales to consult his knowledge of cosmetic surgery, from other states such as California, Florida, Oklahoma, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Delaware, Michigan, Chicago, and even Alaska. Others fly in from other countries such as far away as Canada, England, Spain, Russia and even Iran.
Natural Plastic Surgery Results by a Trusted Surgeon
Whether it’s quick and easy Botox or Juvaderm injections, other fillers to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, or a rhinoplasty, you can relax knowing that you and the people you love are in the care of an expert that truly cares for his patients.
Dr. Naderi is well known by his patients and his fellow doctors for attaining natural-looking results with his cosmetic procedures. Surgical signs are virtually undetectable when performed by him because of concealed and well-placed incisions that allow for rapid healing and obfuscate the more obvious signs that one has had a cosmetic procedure. You will have to experience it for yourself in order to believe how youthful and well rested you’ll look after your recovery, with only minimal pain and discomfort.
Being as experienced as he is, Dr. Naderi finds himself regularly consulted by other doctors for advice and by manufacturers to assess their latest products as he is considered to be on the cutting edge of his field. When asked for constructive criticism, Dr. Naderi always looks at each item in a scientific and impartial manner. He is not one to make quick decisions or to jump on the same train that everyone else is, be it a procedure or device that is being touted as the next great thing. Some doctors will sell products without due consideration, perform procedures such as thread-lifts or contour lifts, or even use insufficiently tested machinery such as lasers due to the heavy marketing and media saturation surrounding them. Dr. Naderi simply refuses to place his patients at risk for harm in any way and only performs surgical procedures that are proven time and time again to be effective and safe.
Dr. Naderi Routinely Talks Patients Out of Plastic Surgery
It is Dr. Naderi’s belief that it is crucial for his patients to not only be completely informed but to also feel totally comfortable with their decision in choosing to have elective plastic surgery as well as the surgeon that they select to perform it. In the process of evaluating the needs of each patient, Dr. Naderi thoughtfully explains in detail the procedure(s) that you might be taking into consideration including the expected benefits, possible risks, and realistic expectations of surgical outcomes. This is all to ensure that you are carefully given the information you need to make an informed decision. Available alternatives are also discussed, even if Dr. Naderi has to refer the patient to other plastic surgeons or dermatologists elsewhere that are capable of performing these alternative treatments. It is common for Dr. Naderi to talk his patients out of undergoing surgical procedures that he feels are unnecessary and/or risky, especially when he sees that having that surgery will not be in their best interests.
Additionally, few surgeons have the same understanding of aesthetics, or the functional understanding of the nose and nasal surgery that Dr. Naderi has. You will see for yourself during your surgical consultation, as you become familiar with his integrity, knowledge, and overall compassion for his patients. He is a truly concerned, sincere, and compassionate doctor that prioritizes the safety of his patients. Happy patients are satisfied patients, and their satisfaction is what compels Dr. Naderi into action every day.
Dr. Naderi Utilizes the Latest Plastic Surgery Imaging Technology
Dr. Naderi uses the latest cutting-edge technology that he deems beneficial and most importantly, safe for his patients. For many years now, he has used the Canfield digital computer imaging (morphing) software, in order to demonstrate all of the benefits and limitations of any surgical procedure effectively before any surgery has begun. This allows Dr. Naderi to discuss the goals of the patient and any areas of concern that he may have long before anyone goes into the operating room. He does so by showing the patient a clear image of what they could look like after the surgery is performed. With this imaging technology, patients can have expectations that are more reasonable and be more satisfied with their results.
