Jason Roostaeian, MD, is an Associate Clinical Professor in the Division of Plastic Surgery at UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. Dr. Roostaeian, a Los Angeles native, obtained his undergraduate degree at UCLA with summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa honors. He then continued at UCLA for medical school where he earned the prestigious UC Regents Scholarship, “the UC’s highest recognition of academic excellence.” In medical school he received Alpha Omega Alpha honors, as well as the Longmire Medial which is awarded to the top graduating student in surgery.

With his excellent academic record and having received 99th percentile on the national medical licensing exam, Jason was able to match into UCLA’s highly competitive combined general surgery-plastic surgery program which is offered to only one applicant per year. The UCLA Plastic Surgery is widely known to be one of the top training programs in the country.

After completing his residency training, Jason was then chosen to pursue additional specialization in Advanced Aesthetic Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern (UTSW) Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. This is considered to be the top aesthetic training programs in the United States as many of the most innovative leaders in cosmetic plastic surgery teach at this institution and are dedicated to producing future leaders in plastic surgery.

Dr. Roostaeian, dedicated to the art and science of plastic surgery, then returned to the UCLA Plastic Surgery Division to complete a fellowship in Microvascular Surgery where he focused on breast reconstruction, as well as complex reconstruction of the head & neck, and lower extremity. Dr. Jason Roostaeian strives to continue his passion for being at the cutting edge of aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, authoring over 50 peer reviewed articles and book chapters in leading plastic surgery text books and journals.

In addition to completing an Aesthetic Fellowship at UTSW, Dr. Jason Roostaeian completed UCLA's Microvascular Fellowship for Reconstructive Surgery. He specializes in Microsurgery, a technologically advanced, modern approach to reconstructive surgery. After 25 years of development, it now holds a critical position in the care of patients.

The ability to close wounds and restore form and function utilizing transplanted tissue has forever changed the modern approach to reconstruction and continues to expand the indications for surgery. Dr. Jason utilizes these Microsurgery first-choice reconstructive techniques when treating patients who require Reconstructive Surgery.

Questions and Answers

  • The duration of a rhinoplasty varies greatly depending on the complexity of your procedure. Primary rhinoplasties are typically range from 1.5-3 hours, and average 2 hours. Revision procedures can take longer, particularly when cartilage from the ear or rib is required.

  • Closed rhinoplasty signifies that all incisions are concealed on the inside of the nose. Open rhinoplasty also includes a very small incision across the skin that separates your nostrils called the columella. The resultant scar is virtually imperceptible once fully healed. The open approach affords your surgeon better exposure to the nasal anatomy, and in particular to the nasal tip. The decision to perform your rhinoplasty open or closed all depends on what your individual needs and goals are. During your consultation, Dr Jason will be able to advise you on the best option for your particular needs.

  • Implants do not need to be changed or altered unless a problem occurs. On average, 50% of implants are exchanged or removed for various reasons by 10 years. A patients’ desire for a size change, or switching from saline to silicone are some of the more common reasons. With the newest generation of implants, ruptures are more rare. Capsular Contracture, the formation of a tight or painful capsule around the implant, is one of the most common complications that can require removal or exchange of your implant. The risk of capsular contracture developing, on average, is approximately 2%/year based on the latest FDA data.

  • During your initial consultation, Dr. Jason Roostaeian will work with you to determine the right size and shape of implants for your body type. Dr. Jason specializes in natural looking breast enhancements and believes an increase of one-two cup sizes is ideal for most body types. Larger breast augmentations can be performed depending on the amount of laxity (skin sag) in the breast. Good communication with Dr. Jason is crucial to help ensure your size satisfaction.
