Dr. Paul Nassif, as a skilled facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, is Trusted with Faces Worldwide ™.

His surgical prowess and innovative techniques have been recognized internationally by the media, patients and his peers. Known as a revision and ethnic rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Nassif is sought after by patients from around the world for help in correcting some of the most challenging complicated cases.

This is why he is Trusted with Noses Worldwide ™. Dr. Nassif specializes in obtaining natural results in both rhinoplasty and aging face surgery at Nassif MD Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, California.

For rhinoplasty, Dr. Nassif uses his skill as an artist and a surgeon to shape the nose to fit the face, rather than make it appear artificial. Patients marvel at how Dr. Nassif is able to create a nose that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. In addition to his revision work, Dr. Nassif also specializes in rhinoplasty for ethnic noses, ensuring tailored results that look proportional to an individual’s ethnic and racial features.


As a specialist in aging face endoscopic surgery, Dr. Nassif skillfully conceals incisions by performing minimally invasive procedures that reduce the evidence of scars. A procedure that he developed, "The Anti-Gravity Facelift," leaves no visible scars and has been noted for achieving natural-looking results in the shortest recovery time. To accelerate the healing process, Dr. Nassif uses platelet gel derived from a patient’s own blood cells.

The products in his Nassif MD Bio-Rhythmic Skincare Line help to counter the negative effects associated with a busy lifestyle, which include daily stressors that can cause your biorhythms to get out of sync. When this occurs, the condition of the skin is negatively affected with symptoms such as irritation, fine lines, premature aging, elasticity loss and more. The products boost skin hydration and energy, and are a fantastic way to combat the aging process.
