Dr. A.H. Nezami of Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center is catching the eyes of women nationwide through his stellar website filled with natural looking results.

After being schooled at the Paris School of Medicine, Nezami came to the United States to complete his residency under the two founders of plastic surgery in Jacksonville, Drs. Morgan and Kaye. Morgan was so impressed with Nezami’s work that he asked him to join his practice. And when Kaye retired, he trusted all of his patients to Nezami. “He thought this was a good opportunity, and when we fell in love with Jacksonville, we decided to stay here and practice here permanently,” said Homa Nezami, the doctor’s wife and office manager.

Now in practice for 30 years as one of the most respected plastic surgeons, Nezami always saw the day coming that he would enhance breasts, bodies, faces and skin. Since he was young, he enjoyed building things and doing delicate work with his hands. When asked how his practice is set apart from the rest, the answer was quite simple. “It is just me [the physician] that makes us stand out,” said Nezami. He is in the office almost every day and takes credit for all of the results. Though he said there are little tricks to the trade, he chose not to reveal them and explained that you have to have an eye for it. “You cannot teach plastic surgery to somebody overnight,” he said.

The best possible results are achieved by this talented doctor tailoring the procedure to the patient in the safest way possible — and being connected to the hospital adds an additional sense of safety and security for patients. The idea is not just for the patient to select the procedure, but also for the plastic surgeon to select the patient. Patients are not always suitable for the procedure and may have the wrong expectations. “We make sure the patient really needs and wants it, that it is the proper procedure, and then we get the result they want,” said Nezami.

Nezami prides himself on taking care of the patient from beginning to end. He does not use patient coordinators or physician assistants. “I think patients come to see me because of the result they saw I obtained, not because of my physician assistant or nurse,” said Nezami. Though he describes his staff as well-trained and able to handle a lot, Nezami rarely even leaves sutures to his nurse. “Patients want me to do it; otherwise, they would have gone to somebody else,” he said.

Patients are empowered with knowledge — they first come to the doctor for a consultation, which can take up to an hour, to talk about what they want to have done. Dr. Nezami then examines the area and explains what their options are for improvement. He shares pictures of patients before and after their procedures, and uses drawings to explain how the procedure is done. For example, for a prospective patient seeking breast enlargement, they would see the implants, be made aware of possible complications, and understand when they can expect to look good and be ready to go back to work. A second appointment is scheduled before surgery to see if the patient is prepared, needs any additional tests and to get remaining questions answered. “I want them to know how to take care of themselves before, during and after surgery and what to expect so they come in relaxed and know everything that is going to happen.”

The journey to self-improvement is embarked upon in an extremely comforting environment. “Our staff are caring, understanding and treat all patients as if they are family,” said Nezami. Nobody feels rushed, and when patients fill out comment cards to thank Nezami for taking care of them, they often mention his considerate staff as well.

Often patients have been bothered by a physical defect for a long time, then breathe a sigh of relief after seeing the improvement surgery brings. Nezami does not discriminate but especially likes when he feels the patient already looks good and is just improving upon that. “Anyone who wants to look better and has realistic expectations should come in,” said Nezami.

More often than not, Nezami’s results surpass the patient’s expectations, likely due to his personal care and attention to detail. He has been witness to many transformations as a result of his magical hands and powerful tools. “After a face-lift, patients’ attitudes change — they dress nicer, take care of their hair and face, and almost look like a different person because they see that improvement,” said Nezami. Every body part is enhanced with customized special care. “For breast augmentation, we see patients that come in with their shoulders down looking like they want to hide their small breasts, but once we have done surgery, they walk proud.”

The best plastic surgery is the kind that is unrecognizable, according to Nezami. “You want people to tell the patient that they look good, younger, more proportionate and refreshed,” he said. It comes down to knowing where to pull and how much, what the limits are, where to put the incisions and what to do underneath the skin so the face looks more natural — or how to select the proper size and shape of the breast implant so it goes with the patient’s body.

Nezami’s confidence is booming as he shares that he has never had complications, which usually go along with the territory. “They say if you do enough surgeries, you get complications, but I do not think that is true for me,” he said.

The best part of his job is he can make it seem that he has never had to work a day in his life. “I think my job is not really a job, it is a pleasure,” said the doctor. His results keep him going strong in what he calls an art in human dimensions. He loves that the patients are happy. “They do not have a disease or anything they have to take care of, they are just trying to improve.” In comparing himself to other doctors, Nezami likes his place. “When I have excellent results and happy patients, that makes me happy too.”

Patients look and feel better, have improved self-esteem, and are happier overall because of his expertise and compassion. Nezami is unique in the sense that he follows up with patients, which he said is unusual for a plastic surgeon. Patients who have breast enlargement are checked annually for problems or anything that can be detected early. Often, happy patients will come back for additional procedures or refer their friends. “A good percentage of the people of Jacksonville are in my population already,” said Nezami.

Aside from getting a consultation to learn more, Nezami recommends sun protection. “The sun does a lot of damage to skin, so you should put on sunblock half an hour before you go outside and not just wear a shield on your face.” If you have been contemplating a procedure and are looking for the right person to turn to, look no further than Dr. A.H. Nezami.

Breast Augmentation with Saline or Silicone Implants, Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Blog explains differences between saline & silicone implants.


Written by A.H. Nezami, MD, founder of Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center

In our Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center we want all our patients undergoing breast augmentation (augmentation mammaplasty) breast enlargement or breast enhancement with implants to be completely informed of all their options. I spend a lot of time with my patients to explain all the aspects of the breast augmentation procedure that they are considering. An adequate knowledge of the procedure and the differences between saline and silicone implant is necessary in order for the patient to make an informed decision and correct choice for their cosmetic breast augmentation surgery. Breast enlargement is an important decision since they have to live with those breast implants for years.

Although both types of implants are similar in appearance when placed on the table, the saline implants and silicone implants are very different.

The outer shells of saline or silicone implants are made of silicone. The saline implant has an injection port from where the saline solution (sterile salt water solution) is injected by the surgeon during the procedure. The silicone implant is pre-filled by the manufacturer.

Saline and silicone implants are available in different sizes and profiles.  For each size saline breast implant, there is a minimum and maximum fill volume set by the manufacturer. Therefore, the surgeon can go up or down with the volume of the saline, but the volume of silicone breast implant cannot be changed.

After implantation of saline or silicone implants the body forms a scar tissue around the implant (like another cover), this is called “Capsule”.

In Jacksonville, Breast Augmentation Trumps Liposuction

For the second year in a row, Jacksonville, breast augmentation beat liposuction as the most popular plastic surgery procedure – no surprise in a region known for its beautiful beaches and sunny climate. According to statistics compiled by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Liposuction had been the top choice nationwide for 12 years until 2008. Many cosmetic surgeons credit the surge in the demand for breast augmentation in Jacksonville and elsewhere to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s 2006 decision to lift the ban on silicone breast implants for cosmetic use. Others point to changes in fashion styles, including décolletage-baring looks as a contributing factor.

When it comes to breast augmentation, Dr. A.H. Nezami, founder of Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center is highly regarded and eminently qualified. Dr. Nezami is known in Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra community for providing the most natural looking result. A board certified plastic surgeon practicing in Jacksonville since 1981, Dr. Nezami is recognized among Jacksonville’s and the nation’s best by Castle Connolly Medical and the Consumer Research council of America. His years of experience and scores of clients who are deeply satisfied with their new looks have placed him among the most sought-after plastic surgeons performing breast augmentations in Jacksonville.

Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) and Liposuction Differences. Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Blog

Written by A.H. Nezami, MD of Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center for our patient in Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beaches and Ponte Vedra.

Dr. A.H. Nezami is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with 29 years of experience in private practice of plastic and cosmetic surgery in Jacksonville, in addition to his extensive training in general surgery and plastic surgery. He believes a well-informed patient and experienced plastic surgeon are prerequisite for successful outcomes of cosmetic surgery and a very happy patient.

It is common for patients from Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra to come to see us on consultation for liposuction, when in fact the Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) is the procedure they need, because they have excess skin and fat, poor skin elasticity and weakened abdominal wall muscles. Sometimes the reverse happens, we see patients for  a tummy tuck, when they just need liposuction to remove the excess localized abdominal fat. This brought us to write “Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty) and Liposuction Differences. Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Blog” for our patient fromJacksonville, Jacksonville Beaches, Ponte Vedra and from around the world.

Curious about Botox? Jacksonville’s Dr. A.H. Nezami Explains All You Need to Know.

Jacksonville Botox Blog Provided by A.H. Nezami, MD.  of Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center, PA.

Botox is a product called Botulinum toxin, when injected into the muscle reduces the muscle’s activities that cause crease lines. The product is shipped refrigerated to the physician’s office in form of powder. The vial of Botox contain 100 units, the powder is dissolved in saline solution. In our Jacksonville Cosmetic Surgery Center practice, we dissolve 1 vial of Botox in 1 cc of saline. This concentrated solution makes 100 units of Botox. If more saline is added to the vial of powder Botox for reconstitution, the Botox is more diluted and the effect on the muscle is less for the same amount of cc. injected, or if more cc injected then the effect could be more spread out to the adjacent muscle that we do not want to affect. After the injection patient will see relaxation of the muscles and a reduction of wrinkles in 4 to 5 days.  The effect of Botox injection will typically last 3 to 4 months. Repeated injections of Botox, over time weaken the injected muscles. After Botox injection normal activity can be resumed immediately, no recovery time is needed.

Although any medical doctors specialized or not, dentists, physician assistants and nurse practitioners are authorized to administer Botox, to get better and more consistent result it is wise to have the injection done by a plastic surgeon who has experience in the technique and knowledge of the anatomy and function of the musculature and has also a sense of aesthetic result that you want to obtain. Remember Jacksonville, Botox injection is not like any other injection. The injection has to be in a correct location, appropriate depth, and adequate amount of concentrated Botox to achieve the best aesthetic and lasting result and prevent the appearance of frozen face. The physician should be able to assess the strength of the muscle in each patient in order to administer the correct amount of Botox. Otherwise the result may not last or if it is diluted it may spread and cause other muscle weakness like eyebrow or upper eyelid droopiness.
