Meet Dr. Khan
Dr. Farah Naz Khan is a board certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon practicing in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Plano area of Texas. She performs a full range of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, including breast augmentation, mommy makeovers, post-massive weight loss surgery, body contouring, facial surgery, and breast reconstruction.
Born in Raleigh, North Carolina, Dr. Khan was raised in both California and New Jersey, experiencing life along both coasts. Excelling both athletically and academically, she received a full scholarship to The College of New Jersey and graduated Summa Cum Laude and with Honors with a degree in Biology and a minor in Chemistry in only 3 years.
She then continued her education at the prestigious Duke University School of Medicine where she immersed herself in basic science and clinical research at the Kenan Plastic Surgery Laboratory. This resulted in several publications in peer reviewed journals as well as presentations at both the national and international level. She also received an NIH medical student research fellowship to further her interests.
After observing her plastic surgery mentors, she realized that the best surgical results were usually obtained by those who were able to recognize and appreciate often subtle differences in symmetry, shape, and form. She enrolled at the world renowned Parsons New School of Design in New York City where she sketched, painted, and sculpted human models and learned to appreciate the nuances of the human form. Earning a Certificate in the Fine Arts, she then returned to Duke University to complete her final year of medical school.
Graduating with Honors from Duke, she continued her education at Baylor College of Medicine and The Methodist Hospital under the tutelage of Dr. Aldona Spiegel, an expert breast reconstruction microsurgeon. Completing both a clinical and research fellowship in breast reconstruction and microsurgery, Dr. Khan knew she had found her calling and was admitted into the highly competitive integrated Plastic Surgery residency training program at the University of South Florida.
During her 6-year residency, she rotated through several highly acclaimed institutions, including the Moffitt Cancer Center and Tampa General Hospital. Training in the full spectrum of all that plastic surgery has to offer, including hand surgery, burn reconstruction, cleft lip/palate surgery, lower extremity reconstruction, maxillofacial trauma, head and neck surgery, microsurgery, and cosmetic surgery, she knew she was more than ready to enter the world of private practice in the greater Dallas-Plano area.
Joining as an associate of Drs. Tebbetts and Deuber in Uptown Dallas, Dr. Khan is thrilled to be practicing here in the Lonestar state. With family ties in the Plano area, she is happy to provide services to patients located throughout Plano and the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. And when she’s not operating, you can often find her strolling through old, historic downtown Plano, hanging out at the Shops of Legacy, or unleashing her competitive streak at Main Event USA!
Ultimately, Dr. Khan believes that it is an honor and a privilege to be a plastic surgeon. “I am truly blessed to have found such a wonderful career. Every day, I am inspired by my colleagues and patients to give 110% to whatever I pursue. Every day I learn something new and that allows me to provide my patients with the latest and most innovative procedures to correct both function and form.”
Dr. Khan regularly attends national Plastic Surgery meetings and strives to provide her patients with the safest and most up to date surgical technique. She is a diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. You will find her to be compassionate and understanding with an eye for detail. Dr. Khan will take as much time as you need to educate you on all aspects of a surgical procedure including benefits, risks, and complications. She knows that every patient is unique and has their own needs and will work with you to determine what is best for you!
