Meet Dr. Elyassnia

Dr. Elyassnia comes from a family of surgeons and knew at an early age that this would be his calling. He completed his undergraduate training at the University of California, San Diego where he graduated Summa Cum Laude and received the Biology Outstanding Achievement Award given to the top student in the entire department. Dr. Elyassnia went on to obtain his medical degree at the USC School of Medicine. He graduated in the top 1% of his class and scored in the top 1% nationally on the medical licensing exam. While in medical school his interest in plastic surgery blossomed. His achievements at USC allowed him to obtain an appointment to the combined general surgery and plastic surgery training program at the University of California San Francisco, one of the most sought after positions in the country. At UCSF, Dr. Elyassnia received a broad education in plastic and reconstructive surgery and learned directly from many leaders in the field. To further develop his interest in cosmetic surgery, he pursued subspecialty training with the best plastic surgeons in Manhattan. There he completed an Aesthetic Fellowship at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, home to arguably the busiest fellowship clinic in the country. This is one of only a handful highly competitive cosmetic surgery fellowships in the United States. Few plastic surgeons complete additional training, such as this, dedicated to aesthetic surgery making him arguably the best plastic surgeon San Francisco has to offer.

Today Dr. Elyassnia practices a broad spectrum of plastic surgery in San Francisco while maintaining a focus on cosmetic surgery of the face, breast, and body. Dr. Elyassnia is a caring individual who is in constant pursuit of perfection and takes great pride in his work. His talents earned him the opportunity to join The Marten Clinic of Plastic Surgery in San Francisco headed by Dr. Timothy J. Marten, a world-renowned plastic surgeon. The Martin Clinic has been recognized as one of the world's best addresses for plastic surgery (W Magazine, August 2001). He is currently sought after as a lecturer at national and international plastic surgery meetings on facial rejuvenation and fat grafting, and has published extensively on these topics.

Dr. Elyassnia maintains the highest standards of integrity in his practice. He will never try to upsell you, or coerce you into a procedure that isn’t right for your needs, or that doesn’t respect and preserve your overall well-being for the long term. He treats each patient like family, pursuing their highest good, enabling them to look and feel their very best. Because of this, patients in the San Francisco area and beyond have come to trust Dr. Elyassnia exclusively with their cosmetic procedures, regarding his practice as a sanctuary for beauty, aesthetic balance and age-defying technology.
