Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Azhar Ali has performed more than 6,000 surgical procedures, including 2,500 breast implants.
He excels in all facets of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery, and is well-respected by his peers – especially in the delicate reconstruction required following breast removal. He achieves a natural look by applying the latest advances that reduce the need for complex flaps.
When Dr. Ali sees patients, he listens to their concerns and wants to know what their expectations are. Then he discusses what type of procedure will best suit their needs. “My main goal is education, education, education,” Dr. Ali says. “I think patients appreciate that.”
Patients find that Dr. Ali isn’t only attentive and highly skilled; he’s compassionate and trustworthy. His positive ratings on various social media platforms are higher than 95 percent. He ensures that patients can make an informed choice when contemplating cosmetic surgery. “We treat our patients as we would our family members,” says Dr. Ali, who’s been recognized as an Hour Detroit Top Doc for several years.
Often, Dr. Ali will see a patient for an initial procedure such as a breast augmentation, and that patient will return for subsequent plastic surgery. “That, to me, is the best testimonial,” he says.
Minimal and noninvasive procedures including facial fillers, Botox, and cool laser sculpting are popular in his practice. Dr. Ali specializes in surgical breast reconstruction, augmentation, reduction and breast-lift, and he performs numerous other procedures including face-lifts, tummy tucks, Brazilian butt lifts, nose reshaping, and liposuction.
Dr. Ali has also devoted his time and talents to humanitarian causes near and far, including the SaveSmile cleft palate repair program in Africa, and he has helped in the aftermath of earthquakes in Kashmir and Haiti.
His advice for those seeking plastic surgery is simple: Do your homework. “My advice is always, “Don’t be afraid to ask about your surgeon’s credentials,’ ” he says, noting that not all physicians who perform cosmetic procedures carry the gold standard of being board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, as he does. “You need to decide who makes you feel comfortable, and who you feel you can trust.”
Most often, that trusted choice is Dr. Ali.
