About Dr. Sarhaddi

Dr. Sarhaddi joined our plastic surgery practice in St. Louis after completing an Aesthetic Society-endorsed aesthetic surgery fellowship at Emory University in Atlanta, GA, where she trained with leading experts in cosmetic surgery procedures and advanced nonsurgical techniques. She specializes in both surgical and nonsurgical facial rejuvenation.


“I believe that when people look their best, they feel their best. Someone who thinks they look tired, angry, old, or unattractive often lets those feelings affect their interaction with the world,” Dr. Sarhaddi says. “I love the impact a few (or a lot!) of perfectly changed millimeters and effectively placed highlights on the face can have on a patient’s sense of well-being, energy, and freedom.”

Dr. Sarhaddi’s meticulous attention to detail, in both cosmetic surgery and nonsurgical treatments, is noticed by her patients. Her goal is for all her patients to feel educated, confident, and happy with their decisions to get cosmetic treatments.


Dr. Sarhaddi says her mother strongly influenced her career. She raised Dr. Sarhaddi and her sister as a single parent and instilled in her a strong work ethic and compassion for others, something for which Dr. Sarhaddi is forever grateful.
