Nirav B. Patel, MD, JD, FCLM
Dr. Nirav Patel is our newest addition to Marietta Plastic Surgery, arriving with a unique training background. He graduated from Princeton University with a degree in economics. He then moved to New York City, graduating from Brooklyn Law School and joining the New York Bar. Deeply affected by the events of September 11, 2001, Dr. Patel ultimately decided to go to medical school. After completing a master’s degree in biology at New York University and two years’ neuroimmunology bench research, Dr. Patel attended the University of Rochester for his medical degree. He then underwent a six year residency in general and plastic surgery at the University of California, Davis Medical Center, where he received awards for exceptional professionalism and mentorship of housestaff and medical students. As a resident, he was active with the California Society of Plastic Surgeons. In addition, he was involved with several international cleft lip and palate surgical missions, which included a Stryker Fellowship with Operation Smile.
Dr. Patel subsequently completed a one-year breast and aesthetic fellowship, endorsed by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Most recently, he has completed additional training in facial aesthetics and oculoplastic surgery. Both fellowships have afforded Dr. Patel the privilege of working with world-renowned experts in breast, eyelid, and facelift surgery. Dr. Patel has co-authored many projects published in the plastic surgery literature, with podium presentations at the national and regional society levels.
Dr. Patel lives with his wife and two children in East Cobb. He is notably a professional-level classical cellist who performs with the Georgia Symphony Orchestra. He still uses his legal training in legislative advocacy efforts with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
