This five-year training period must include at least two years devoted entirely to plastic surgery.

Get To Know Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. David Feldmar
I have been curious about the body and medicine for as long as I can remember. Although I didn’t come from a family of physicians, I have been drawn to medicine for as long as I can remember. My most significant event that started this journey occurred when I was 6 years old. I suffered a ruptured appendix, which led me to a prolonged hospital stay, and it left an indelible mark on my conscience. From that, my childhood and young adulthood was filled with the curiosities of the human body and physiology.
Seeing the smile on a patient after their surgery is completed is one of the best feelings of gratification that I experience
In 2007, I started my own clinic in Agencia Rwanda for reconstructive and orthopedic surgeons to help the victims of the Rwanda genocide. I volunteer my free time to go on medical missions for facial reconstructions for patients with facial defects.
I have been a life-long builder and inventor, and enjoy restoring classic automobiles. I’m also a pro Scooba-diver, spearfisher, and enjoy archery. I also participate in over-landing and adventure dessert dirt racing. I am also involved in conservation, being involved in multiple organization to protect California’s natural forest and open lands.
I dedicate myself to adopting veteran military dogs after they are retired from service. I’m also a philanthropist and donates to multiple organizations both medical and local.
Our practice is a freestanding all-inclusive plastic surgery center. We pride ourself in taking an individual approach to each patients and each patient cosmetics desire. I work closely with each patient to choose a custom surgical plan. In addition, we believe in developing lifelong relationships with our patients, and that the door is open for as long as I’m buisness!
I consider myself an artist first and a scientist second. I use both art and science to get the best results.
Unlike most plastic surgery centers, I will will only operate on cases that are reasonable and will offer the best result.
We are a boutique practice; we are very patient focused. We are conservative in our approach to aesthetics in achieving natural results rather than overdone trendy look. As a high-end aesthetic and plastic surgery institute, we invest in all the top equipment. I spend time creating a top quality surgical team. personally training and vetting each member of my team. They have my full trust and support.
