“The distinction between “cosmetic” and “reconstructive” facial surgery is an artificial one. Regardless of the reason, I am still operating on an area that will change how a person looks forever. For that reason, I feel grateful every day that I have the opportunity to specialize solely in surgery of such a complex, challenging, and rewarding area. My work will be on display for the entire world to see at all times, and that is why I chose to dedicate my entire training path and career exclusively to surgery of the face and neck.”
Double board-certified, and voted one of the top Rhinoplasty and Facelift surgeons in Louisville, Dr. Katrib has succeeded in making us a leading Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery practice in the Greater Louisville area.
After graduating from medical school, Dr. Katrib went on to complete both an internship year in General Surgery and four years in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Louisville. During his training, he gained extensive experience in facial trauma surgery as well as head and neck cancer ablative and reconstructive surgery.
At the completion of his Head and Neck Surgery residency at the University of Louisville, Dr. Katrib was accepted into a highly competitive Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery fellowship with the world renowned and 2015-2016 President of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Edwin Williams in Latham, NY. During this training, he gained extensive hands-on experience in all aspects of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery of the face and neck.
IN OUR PRACTICE OUR PATIENT’S WELL-BEING COMES FIRST
We have given a great deal of thought and consideration to the design, layout, and ambiance of our office. At every point, you are immersed in a warm and inviting space that allows you to break away from the outside world and focus on the self-care that you deserve. We do so while adhering to the highest patient safety requirements for surgical centers.
Plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments require changes to your skin and body. As such, the location in which these procedures are performed should always place patient safety first. Some procedures may be performed “in office”, or Dr. Katrib may schedule the procedure at an outpatient surgery center. The choice of location is based on the desire to reduce the risk of complications, manage costs and provide you with the medical care that you need. Most patients are released home the day of their procedures, but some of the more extensive procedures require a greater level of medical management before releasing a patient. In some cases, this is best achieved in a hospital setting.
Without a doubt one of the best surgeons around. My daughter went through a 7 hour surgery with him and I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor. He explained the whole procedure more than once to make sure we understood what was going to happen. He made her and I both feel at ease before and after the surgery.
We were referred to Dr. Katrib after my husband was in a terrible UTV accident. He sustained a tremendous amount of injuries that included breaking his eye socket. His eye not only drooped down but also sunk back. Dr. Katrib was able to make my husbands eye look exactly like his other eye with the help of an implant. He gave my husband back his confidence and his everyday life. Not only that but he was there when I had questions or concerns. We would recommend him every time.
I could not have asked for a better experience than I had with Dr. Katrib. My rhinoplasty surgery was something that was a very long time coming. He has gone above and beyond in so many different ways for me. Dr. Katrib answered all of my questions and was very honest about how the procedure would go and what to expect from my recovery and results from the very beginning. He was very thorough in his explanations and was always very assuring and comforting. He is a very hardworking, knowledgeable, patient and honest surgeon and has made this entire process very easy for me. I can’t thank Dr. Katrib enough for everything he has done.
Dr. Katrib changed my life! When I first met him, he heard my concerns, validated them, and made an action plan, just in the first consultation! He made me feel so secure and taken care of, and it has only gone up from there. I broke my nose when I was 15 and was so self conscious about the shape and how I my breathing had changed from the deviated septum. I am breathing so much better then I ever thought possible and the shape and profile is stunning! After surgery, Dr. Katrib texted me to check up on me and has always been so amazing and attentive to any questions I have had during my recovery. Thank you, Dr. K!.
If I could give more stars I would. Dr Ziad Katrib is the best plastic surgeon. He is very kind and cares about his patients. He is a great listener and goes above and beyond with his work. I am very happy I chose him for my procedure. His work left me with amazing results. Plus the staff that works with him are extremely nice. I highly recommend him. Thanks Dr. Katrib. Its because of you I am breathing better than ever, look great, and I am confident once again and enjoying the beauty of my new nose!
