Dedicated to her industry
lasting client relations
Cosmetic dermatology and aesthetic surgery have always been Dr. Shirazi’s calling; and it’s no surprise that she specialized in this field of medicine and came to be known as one of the best dermatologists La Jolla has to offer. Science and math were always her academic strengths, but she was also always drawn to art and fashion. Growing up she enjoyed painting and pottery, and today she has grown to appreciate the arts even more. Whether she is engaged in melasma treatment, designing and suturing a skin reconstruction, sculpting the face with injectables, reshaping a scar with a laser beam, reshaping a nose with rhinoplasty, engaged in hand rejuvenation, and more, she continuously incorporates her skill and knowledge with her artistic vision and talent. She embodies a strong passion for dermatology and truly enjoys the art of aesthetics every day.
”“Cosmetic surgery is a creative endeavor whose success is heavily dependent on a artistic vision with a deep understanding of medical science. I look at it as a performance using the eyes of an artist and the mind of a trained medical doctor.” Azadeh Shirazi, MD, FAAD.Dr. Azadeh Shirazi
