Comprehensive Cosmetic Aesthetic Surgery and Minimally Invasive Surgery

Board Certified, American Board of General Surgery (2005) / Re-Certified (2015)

Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery

Babak Moeinolmolki, MD, FACS (or as patients fondly refer to him, Dr. Moein) is one of the few surgeons worldwide who are dually fellowship trained in cosmetic aesthetic and minimally invasive body contouring surgery. He is certainly the only surgeon in Southern California who can claim that distinction. This combination of training gives patients like you a significant advantage during your assessment and surgical planning and allows Dr. Moein to meet your cosmetic needs uniquely.

Dr. Moein can achieve your cosmetic goals by using minimally invasive techniques. His techniques also give you better decision-making abilities concerning short-term cosmetic goals and the long-term preservation of your aesthetic changes.

Dr. Moein was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. He graduated from Calabasas High School in 1988 and received both Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Microbiology and Molecular Genetics from the University of California Los Angeles. Dr. Moein graduated from the College Honors program with distinction. During his time at college, Dr. Moein simultaneously received a service excellence award for his volunteer work at UCLA Medical Center.

His keen interest in minimally invasive surgery prompted him to complete a laparoscopic and bariatric surgery fellowship at the Albert Einstein School of Medicine, Montefiore Hospital in NYC. Following this, he practiced at Greater Baltimore Medical Center for eight years, performing over 2000 minimally invasive procedures and surgeries as an attending surgeon. During this period, Dr. Moein thoroughly understood the cosmetic needs of his post-weight loss surgery patients and developed a plan to create one of the country's most comprehensive cosmetic and minimally invasive weight loss surgical programs.

His passion for aesthetic balance and his keen understanding of artistic beauty prompted Dr. Moein to pursue a second fellowship in cosmetic surgery. During his fellowship, Dr. Moein performed over 1400 advanced cosmetic plastic surgeries. He had the distinct opportunity to train under the world-renowned surgeon Angelo Cuzalina, MD, the former president of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. This surgical cosmetic training and his background as an experienced minimally invasive surgeon have made Dr. Moein one of Southern California's most uniquely qualified cosmetic surgeons.

Dr. Moein is an artist at heart, passionate about the science behind human beauty and rejuvenation. He is an avid photographer with an amazing eye for human beauty and proportions. His ability to listen to his patient’s needs and balance surgical safety and cosmetic goals is at the core of his philosophy. Dr. Moein’s qualifications, background, and expertise allow him to offer his patients unique skills to ensure their patients' unsurpassed aesthetic results through his compassionate hands and extensive training.

The Difference Between Plastic Surgery and Cosmetic Surgery

Many people use the terms “Plastic Surgery” and “Cosmetic Surgery” interchangeably. This is incorrect as both disciplines are distinct.

Plastic surgery is aimed at reconstructing defects of the face and body. Examples include surgeries to correct cleft palates and cleft lips. A plastic surgeon may also perform a breast reconstruction following a mastectomy.

Cosmetic surgery is the term given to surgeries aimed at enhancing one’s appearance through surgical and medical techniques. Cosmetic surgery can be performed on the head, neck, and body; virtually all over. Examples of cosmetic procedures include the tummy tuck, facelift, breast augmentation, buttock enhancement, and gynecomastia treatment for men with male breast growth.

Another way to think of the two disciplines is that cosmetic surgery is focused on appearance, while plastic surgery is meant to correct deformities due to birth disorders, disease, trauma, and burns.
