A native of Los Angeles, he graduated with highest honors from UCLA and earned his medical degree at UC San Diego. He then went on to the world-renowned Washington University Medical School for training in ENT with an emphasis on facial, nasal and neck procedures. After completing two fellowships —one in plastic surgery and regenerative medicine and the other in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery — Dr. Moradzadeh was recruited to join the faculty at Washington University. There he quickly became the “go to” facial plastic surgeon for medical professionals and clients from around the country. In addition to teaching advanced techniques in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Moradzadeh served as co-director of the facial plastic surgery division at the VA hospital, where he helped restore nasal and facial functions to veterans using functional rhinoplasty and MOHs reconstruction for skin cancer defects.
