Enthusiastic about continuing his education and advancing in his field, Dr. Sati went on to enroll at Purdue University in order to sub-specialize in pediatric plastic surgery, dealing in particular with congenital deformities. His training culminated in Paris, where he had the incredible privilege of working with Dr. Daniel Marchac, who is regarded as one of the world’s top authorities on craniofacial and aesthetic surgery.

Dr. Sati is an avid researcher in numerous areas within his field. He has had the honor of presenting his work at some of the most reputable plastic surgery conferences around the globe, and has been awarded several grants to further pursue his research.

Dr. Sati brings unparalleled meticulousness and care to his practice. He is extremely passionate about the benefits of plastic surgery when appropriately applied to the right candidates.

Dr. Sati possesses the following professional traits and philosophies:

• Honesty, moderation and meticulousness
