Michael Hakimi, M.D.

Michael Hakimi, MDA plastic surgeon serving Los Angeles and Pasadena, Dr. Michael Hakimi was born into a family of physicians. Being the eldest of three brothers, he learned the value of discipline early in life. His father, a general surgeon, and his mother a selfless nurse instilled in him the desire to become a physician early on.

He earned his Bachelors of Science in Molecular, Cell and Developmental Biology from the University of California in Los Angeles. His research was focused on tissue engineering of pancreatic beta islets which is cited in over thirty publications. He graduated Summa Cum Laude with Departmental Honors.

In 2005, he attended David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. In medical school he was awarded the “Healthcare Fellowship Award” and “Garber Family Scholarship Award.” He also earned the Letter of Distinction Award which is the Honors Degree in his surgical clerkship. He continued his research interest during medical school, this time in 3-Dimensional tissue engineering and osteogenesis, which was presented multiple times at Plastic Surgery Research Council. Through his research he learned more about plastic surgery and the marriage of form and function in this unique surgical specialty.

In 2009, he started his surgical training in Loma Linda University Integrated Plastic Surgery program. During his training at Loma Linda, he developed personal and professional relationships, found mentors and role models to whom he will be forever grateful. He presented his research in California Society of Plastic Surgeons and American Society of Plastic Surgery. He was also selected as the Resident Auditor for the California Society of Plastic Surgeons’ Scientific Committee and Council Member.

During his plastic surgery residency training Dr. Hakimi was trained in all areas of this broad specialty. Being a perfectionist with high standards, following his graduation he went on to complete advance training (fellowship) in Aesthetic Surgery in the Plastic Surgery Center of Sacramento. His last year of training in Sacramento was exclusively focused of cosmetic surgery of face, body and breast under tutelage of some of the most renowned experts in this field.

“Advanced aesthetic fellowship gives me and my patients the confidence that my knowledge is at the cutting edge of plastic surgery and my technical skills are safe and effective.”
