For the third year in a row, Dr. Sam Jejurikar has been nominated to the 2022 prestigious list of best plastic surgeons in Dallas. Dr. Jejurikar, who has also earned accolades for his skill and finesse as a plastic surgeon by Newsweek, has now been included on the D Magazine “D Best” list for a total of four years.
Each year D Magazine puts together its “Best of” lists, which then becomes a trusted go-to for local Dallas residents and visitors alike. To determine who will be included in the Best Doctors and Pediatric Specialists list, a vote of nearly 10,000 Texas doctors chose amongst their peers, and the final results are narrowed down by specialty.
Dr. Sam Jejurikar is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Dallas Society of Plastic Surgery, and the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute. Dr. Jejurikar is a board-certified plastic surgeon with degrees from the University of Michigan and the University of Michigan Medical School, where he was a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, a national medical honor society.
But his exceptional medical education and years of experience specializing in plastic surgery aren’t the only qualities that set him above the rest. “I recognize that each patient is different, so I take a caring, meticulous approach to plastic surgery,” Dr. Jejurikar says. “This allows me to craft both surgical and noninvasive solutions for my patients’ individual needs.”
Dr. Sam Jejurikar’s Education and Training
After completing his residency in plastic surgery at the University of Michigan Hospital and Health Centers, Dr. Sam Jejurikar did an additional fellowship at Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital in association with New York University Medical Center, where he worked with some of the leading plastic surgeons in the world. This extra training in aesthetic surgery is a step few plastic surgeons take after completing their residency, but it’s just another factor that sets Dr. Jejurikar apart from his peers, making him one of the best plastic surgeons in Dallas.
“My success is largely based upon an emphasis on customer service,” Dr. Jejurikar told inspiry.com. “As a plastic surgeon, this means spending a greater than normal amount of time with each patient during their initial consultation, really listening to their individual concerns. This allows me to craft a surgical solution to their problems that is uniquely tailored to their issues and then to execute that plan during their procedure.”
Additional Awards and Reviews that Set Dr. Jejurikar Apart
Dr. Jejurikar has received a number of awards recognizing his skill. This past August, Newsweek partnered with global market research and custom data firm Statista Inc., and asked 2,000 skin health care professionals who they thought were the best plastic surgeons in the business, taking into account the surgeons’ recommendations as well as board certifications. Then, Newsweek ranked the top 100 in the five most popular kinds of plastic surgery: breast augmentation, eyelid surgery, face-lift, liposuction, and rhinoplasty. Out of 349 individual plastic surgeons, Dr. Jejurikar scored among the leading plastic surgeons in face-lift surgery, liposuction, and rhinoplasty — three out of the five categories.
The Newsweek award cements Dr. Jejurikar as a doctor admired by his peers and patients alike. The purpose of the ranking is not to show which surgeons are popular, but to help consumers make an informed decision and choose from the best surgeons in the business.
His patient’s reviews are a testament to his skill and dedication. “How do you only give 5 stars to a man that not only changed your body, but changed your whole life! His kindness and personality should be the standard for all humans,” gushed one happy patient on healthgrades.com.
“I went to four different doctors for consultation and I am so thankful I chose Dr. J,” said another. “His knowledge and skills, accessibility, and post-op care was everything I could’ve asked for.”
On top of being praised for his face-lift, rhinoplasty, and liposuction surgery, Dr. Sam Jejurikar is highly sought after for his “Mommy Makeover” surgeries, which, in addition to liposuction, include breast augmentation or reduction, breast lift, and tummy tuck. He’s also known for his innovative approach to imaging, offering Crisalix 3D imaging to go beyond the traditional before-and-after pictures and help clients accurately visualize their new and improved selves. During a consultation, Dr. Sam Jejurikar will explain how a procedure works and then go over your 3D images, making tweaks as necessary based on feedback.
While Dr. Sam Jejurikar is undeniably well qualified and educated, it’s his personal touch that makes him stand out.
“My most satisfying moments happen on a daily basis,” he says. “It is intensely gratifying to help patients achieve their goals. This could be a patient who lost massive amounts of weight after bariatric surgery, and now requires an entire body lift to feel confident in his or her own skin. It might be an aging patient who desires facial rejuvenation to be competitive in the workplace. It could be a young male who is bullied for having male breast development, who gets a breast reduction to no longer feel shame.
“Although every patient’s story is different, the impact of his or her life is dramatic and significant. Being able to help patients experience moments like this will never cease to be immensely satisfying.”
