About Dr D
Dr John Di Saia (sometimes written as "DiSaia" or Dr D) is a "real" plastic surgeon with a complete medical education. His first degree was in Neurobiology with High Honors from UC Berkeley (1986). He completed Medical school at UC Irvine in 1990 and started a General Surgery residency that year at UC Irvine. He completed General and Plastic Surgery Residencies at UC Irvine in 1995 and 1997 respectively.
Dr Di Saia became board certified by the American Board of Surgery in 1997 and obtained a second certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery in 2001. He only maintains the certification in plastic surgery as he does not practice general surgery anymore.
The doctor's post-graduate activities have included several publications in the medical journals, a series of articles in local newspapers and expert reviewer status for the California Medical Board since 2003. In this latter capacity, he reviews cases by request of the California Medical Board in which negligence has been suspected.
Dr D's is a Breast and Body plastic surgeon specializing in breast enhancement, liposuction, tummy tuck and body lift surgery. He also performs reconstruction for wounds including burns and trauma. He does not specialize in everything and will actually recommend that which he feels is best for you whether or not that is profitable for him. That makes him unusual. :)
