Dr. Khattab's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Khattab "Dr. Sherif Khattab is a prominent plastic surgeon who has been practicing in Torrance, California since 1988. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is known throughout the greater Southern California area for his meticulous surgical skill, artistry and genuine concern for his patients. Dr. Khattab is as skilled at facial aesthetics, breast procedures and body contouring as he is with procedures relating to injuries, burns and the aftermath of cancer. Whatever the challenge, his goal is to fully understand that person's expectations and do everything in his power to meet them. Everyone needs a helping hand and many people are insecure about some aspect of their appearance. It's so human. Dr. Khattab is adamant about not giving "too general advice" over the phone or even on his website. He says, "Every person is so unique. There is no one answer. I could recommend a procedure for one woman that would not be appropriate for her twin sister. There is nothing to replace a face-to-face consultation to develop the right plan and to help the patient embrace the change to come.""

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Khattab "I want all of my patients to feel they can come to me for honest medical advice. I cannot in good conscience prescribe the treatment that I feel will not be beneficial to the patient. Some procedures are not necessary and sometimes I might not be the appropriate doctor for the procedure. As a plastic and reconstructive surgeon I have been able to see people transform their lives because of the confidence they gained after a successful procedure. It is not something I take full credit for but to be able to play a significant part in the life of someone who might otherwise be a stranger encourages me every day to try and make this world a happier place."
