Dr. Rostami's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rostami "Dr. Soheila Rostami is a double board-certified oculo-facial plastic surgeon with nearly 20 years of experience turning back the clock on aging. She is much sought-after for her precise technique and skill level in eyelid surgery, dermal filler and neurotoxin injections. She is highly knowledgeable about the most advanced anti-aging laser and radio-frequency technologies available today. She is also a national trainer for cannula, microneedling, dermal filler and neurotoxin injection protocols. Dr. Rostami is a graduate of the Howard University School of Medicine in Washington DC, where she was chief resident of ophthalmology. She completed her training for ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Maryland. Dr. Rostami holds her board certifications with the American Board of Ophthalmology (FAAO), the American Board of Facial Cosmetic Surgery (ABFCS) and serves on the Board of Trustees with the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery (ABCS). Dr. Rostami is the former Section Chief of Ophthalmology at Reston Hospital Center, Assistant Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at George Washington University, Adjunct Associate Clinical Professor at State University of New York, State College of Optometry and Assistant Professor at Howard University Hospital Ophthamology. She has received numerous awards over the years including Dean's Honor Roll, Beta Kappa Chi Honor Society, Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society, Dr. Charles I. West Award, Trustee Scholarship, Member of AOA Medical Honor Society Gamma Chapter, and peer-voted Northern Virginia Top Doc. She is very involved in the Northern Virginia and Washington DC area community and charities with memberships to medical societies, chamber of commerce, and women in medicine. In addition, Dr. Rostami performs clinical research for leading technologies in cosmetics and presents her work around the world. Having performed thousands of cosmetic and medically necessary eyelid surgeries, Dr. Rostami is known as the surgical eye expert in northern Virginia and Washington, DC metro area. She is honored that other physicians trust her with their own eye surgeries and with those of their patients. While Dr. Rostami is accomplished in lower facelifts, brow and forehead lifts, mid-face and SOOF lifts, eyelid surgeries remain a special interest. She loves performing upper and lower blepharoplasties and ptosis correction to resolve peripheral vision issues and rejuvenate the area for a refreshed and rested appearance. She is also skilled in correcting eyelid anomalies and repairing orbital bone fractures and tissue damage from trauma. Dr. Rostami is passionate about creating individualized plans of action for her patients that produces results. She believes in treating all appropriate depths of one's facial tissues, starting with the surface with the use of pharmaceutical-grade skin care products. From her experience, she is cognizant that there is a 3rd dimension to a more youthful face. Her patients trust her to achieve this by strategically placing dermal fillers to replace lost volume, and injecting neurotoxins to soften lines, prevent wrinkles, and adding lift. She also makes personalized recommendations for skin resurfacing and skin tightening regimens including chemical peels, lasers and radio-frequency procedures to postpone surgical intervention until much later. Dr. Rostami also sees patients at her private practices, Sanctuary Cosmetic Center and Rostami Ophthalmic Plastic Consultants, and at Capital Eye Consultants in Fairfax."
