About Me

Title: Medical Director of Plastic Surgery, Henry Ford Allegiance Health (Jackson, MI)

Biographical Statement:
As a plastic surgeon, I have the privilege of performing both reconstructive and cosmetic procedures. Plastic surgery isn't necessarily about life and death — it is about improving quality of life. My ultimate goal is to restore or enhance an individual’s form and function. I can operate from head to toe, on children as well as adults, and on both simple and complex types of cases.

I have specialized training in microvascular reconstruction, which allows me to perform complicated surgeries in which I can transplant one’s own tissue to repair another part of the body by sewing together tiny arteries and veins under the microscope. Not only do I operate on vessels, but I also operate on nerves, tendons, muscles and bone.

Some of my particular interests include breast reconstruction and other breast surgery, skin cancer reconstruction, rhinoplasty (nose reshaping to improve appearance or breathing), facial rejuvenation (facelift, eye lift, brow lift), body contouring (liposuction, abdominoplasty, lower body lift), lymphedema surgery (lymphovenous bypass), hand surgery and lower extremity reconstruction.

Care Philosophy:
I am a safe, compassionate and knowledgeable surgeon with an artistic eye. I am passionate about my work and a perfectionist at heart. I try to understand my patients and their reconstructive or aesthetic goals. It is truly rewarding—the task of making my patients feel confident and whole again.

*Dr. Ambani is nice, courteous, thorough, seems to be informed on my health condition & history, she seems to always be in a hurry though - even though she is listening and answering questions. I just want to tell her to slow down and take a breath.
