Jigar Sitapara, MD

As a Montgomery county native, Jigar Sitapara, MD is very excited to return to the D.C. Metro area to specialize solely in plastic surgery of the face. After spending several years at the National Institutes of Health and obtaining his Ivy League education at the University of Pennsylvania, he spent the following nine years as Instructor and Clinical House-staff at the third highest ranked Head and Neck Surgery program in the country (US News Ranking). During his final year of training, he was elected Chief Resident and completed his training after performing over five thousand surgeries (nearly double the average US graduate).

His passion for further specialization led him to New York, where he spent an additional year operating side by side with the world-renowned, former president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery, Dr. Edwin Williams. As one of only 46 facial plastic surgery fellows in the country, Dr. Sitapara solidified his passion for cutting edge cosmetic facial plastic surgery with particular attention to extended deep plane face/neck lifts, endonasal “scarless” rhinoplasty (also known as closed rhinoplasty), and hair transplantation. He firmly believes that by hyper-specializing in plastic surgery of only the face and neck, he is able to achieve NATURAL and CUSTOMIZED results for each and every surgical and non-surgical patient.
