Double board-certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Sayed is also a leader in local and national plastic surgical organizations, a physician entrepreneur, a working musician, and a student of many disciplines. First and foremost, though, he is a dedicated and committed physician of the highest order. After graduating valedictorian of the largest graduating high school class in the state of Texas, he undertook studies in electrical engineering and computer science at Berkeley, where he graduated Phi Beta Kappa with Highest Honors. During his undergraduate years, he studied medical device design for surgical indications and medical imaging, and worked in a surgery laboratory building analytical tools to measure physiology, as part of the Engineering Honors Program. He then pursued his childhood dream of becoming a surgeon and graduated as one of the top students in his class at the University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine – an entering class that was rated #1 for student selectivity in the U.S. News and World Report rankings of medical schools. The UCSF School of Medicine is regularly ranked as one of the top 5 medical schools in America and is known for excellence in patient care, research, and surgical specialties. He achieved membership in the exclusive Alpha Omega Alpha National Medical Honor Society, an honor bestowed on only the top 10% of medical students. He was one of only two recipients in his graduating class of the UCSF Alumni-Faculty Association Award for Academic Excellence, having earned top "honors" performance in nearly every clinical clerkship during his medical school clinical training. Dr. Sayed then completed the rigorous general surgery residency at Harvard Medical School's oldest and most renowned teaching hospital: Massachusetts General Hospital, recently ranked as the #1 hospital in the United States in US News and World Report. At The MGH, Dr. Sayed trained with renowned leaders in complex surgery, refining his technical and patient care skills. To complete his training, he returned to UCSF for plastic surgery residency, where he learned from internationally recognized leaders like Dr. Stephen Mathes, who wrote the book (literally) on complex reconstructive surgery; Dr. Harry Buncke, who invented microsurgery; Dr. Ronald Gruber, one of the world's preeminent rhinoplasty experts, and others. In his training and practice, he has performed complex reconstruction, wound care, and breast reconstruction on hundreds of patients, all of which experience contributed to honing his cosmetic surgical skills. He has built a strong reputation for breast surgery, facelifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, fat transfer, cosmetic injectables (like Botox and Juvederm) and rhinoplasty, and is a sought-after expert in revision breast surgery. Dr. Sayed recognizes that looks matter. He recognizes that people want to look and feel their best. He understands that an investment in cosmetic surgery is just that: an investment. Patients and their families work hard and rightfully expect high quality service for their investment in aesthetic surgery. Your goals and aesthetic dreams are what we strive to achieve every day. Our staff respect patients' time, finances and family needs and will work with patients to provide a great experience for all involved. Dr. Sayed's patient clientele and professional network includes celebrities, pro athletes, business leaders, political figures, and other prominent individuals, but in his eyes and hands, all patients are VIP's. He has treated cosmetic surgery patients from Florida, New York, California, Texas, the UK, the Middle East, Central America and South America. Great plastic surgery is worth traveling for.
