Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
World-renowned facial plastic surgeon Dr. Babak Azizzadeh of the CENTER for Advanced Facial Plastic Surgery has recently been named a 2012 Super Doctor due to his high level of professional achievement. This marks the third year in a row that Dr. Azizzadeh has received this prestigious award.
“It’s truly an honor to be named a 2012 Super Doctor. I’m very thankful that I’ve been given the ability to do what I love day in and day out—helping others achieve their goals through surgery,” said Babak Azizzadeh, MD, FACS.
Eligible recipients of the Super Doctor’s awards are chosen based on professional achievement and peer recognition as determined by Key Professional Media. Key Professional Media employs a meticulous multi-step procedure to determine likely candidates by first creating a pool of expert doctor’s from every field of medicine who are asked to nominate their peers.
Upon receiving a nomination, the candidates are then researched extensively, based upon fellowships, leadership positions, board certifications, and other outstanding achievements. Finally, the doctor’s with the highest scores are grouped together to evaluate a list of candidates from their respective field. The highest scoring doctors then become a part of the 2012 Super Doctors List, which only 5% of physicians receive.
“Every day, I get to work with some of the best doctor’s in the world. The fact that the Super Doctor’s award is partially based on peer recognition makes this even more special for me,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
Receiving this kind of recognition isn’t a first for Azizzadeh, as he has been previously named a part of the Super Doctors list in both 2010 and 2011. When asked to comment on receiving this award for the third year in a row, his response was:
“Working as a facial plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills and getting to share experiences with my patients from start to finish is rewarding enough. I’m humbled to receive any recognition beyond that,” said Dr. Azizzadeh.
Dr. Azizzadeh has been featured as an expert facial plastic surgeon on the Oprah Winfrey Show, as well as in People Magazine, The New York Times, LA Times, and numerous other major media outlets. With his impressive background and schooling, Dr. Azizzadeh is one of the most sought after facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons in the country.
Dr. Azizzadeh is trained in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, as well as Head & Neck Surgery, giving him a distinctive insight into facial nerve function and facial aesthetics. Dr. Azizzadeh also has extensive training in microsurgical facial reconstruction, which is often required for the treatment of people who are born with facial paralysis. He completed a fellowship in facial plastic & reconstructive surgery at the prestigious Harvard Medical School, and is the author of five bestselling books.
