Education & Training
Since Dr. Tirgari was born into a family of plastic surgeons, he was exposed to the field of cosmetic surgery at a very early age. He graduated with honors from the University of Maryland School of Medicine with an additional Research Fellowship at Georgetown University Medical Center.
Following residency training and additional courses at both the University of Tennessee and Emory University Hospitals, Dr. Tirgari continued specific training for liposuction, in which he specializes. He has also studied tumescent liposuction directly under the original founder of tumescent liposuction procedure, giving him especial prowess and skill in the field. His skills have become renowned in the field, and he has continued to follow his passion for bringing out the best in people by improving their body image.
During his Research Fellowship period at the Lombardi Cancer Center of Georgetown University, Dr. Tirgari had the opportunity to work closely with breast cancer patients. His experience with these breast cancer patients opened his eyes to their emotional and psychological struggles. These patients underwent surgical procedures to prevent the spread of their body-altering disease to their other organs. He realized the massive effect of body image to self-esteem, and it became his mission to help all patients who are affected by the agony of low self-esteem and body image issues.
