About Me

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. My training in microvascular surgery underscores my attention to detail and meticulousness in the operating room for all cases that I perform. I like to treat my patients the way I would treat a family member.

Some of my particular interests are breast surgery (reductions, lifts, augmentation, reconstruction); facial skin cancer reconstruction; periocular rejuvenation (eye lift, brow lift), rhinoplasty (nose reshaping to improve appearance or breathing), and body contouring (abdominoplasty, panniculectomy, upper and lower body lift, liposuction).

Dr. Ambani's physician assistant is Rachel Share.
