Meet Dr. Hammoudeh
Ziyad S. Hammoudeh, M.D.
Dr. Hammoudeh grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia. He stayed in his hometown to attend Drexel University, where he received a Bachelor’s of Science in Chemistry and graduated with the highest honor of Summa Cum Laude. He then attended medical school at Temple University, serving the underprivileged population of North Philadelphia. While in medical school, he did research at the University of Pennsylvania and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) on surgical outcomes of children born with cleft palates.
After medical school, Dr. Hammoudeh moved to Detroit to complete a five-year general surgery residency at Wayne State University, where he trained with national leaders in trauma surgery. At Detroit Receiving Hospital, he cared for many critically injured victims of gunshot wounds, burns, and motor vehicle crashes. Following general surgery residency, he became board certified by the American Board of Surgery (ABS). He then went on to complete a three-year plastic surgery residency at the world-renowned Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. During his training, Mayo Clinic was ranked as the number one hospital in the country by US News and World Report, and has consistently been ranked in the top three hospitals for the past decade.
Following his plastic surgery residency at Mayo Clinic, he moved to Los Angeles to complete a highly competitive aesthetic fellowship in the University of Southern California (USC) program. During his fellowship, Dr. Hammoudeh trained with several of the nation’s leaders in cosmetic plastic surgery in Marina del Rey and Beverly Hills, to become an expert in advanced aesthetics. His high level of training and expertise in rhinoplasty, breast, and body contouring surgery, was highly coveted by Dr. Grant Stevens, who then asked him to join the staff at Marina Plastic Surgery, where he demonstrates his talents today.

“Dr. Ziyad Hammoudeh changed my life.”
~ Irene, Northern Cal
“Dr Hammoudeh gave me a tummy tuck and lipo and fat transfer to my buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift). I looked for a year to find a good surgeon to do this for me. He exceeded above and beyond my expectations. I will never see any other surgeon. He is it!”
“I have referred him several girls for surgeries and they love him too!”
“He worked wonders on my face & neck. I look decades younger!
He is quietly confident and will address your individual concerns, with kindness.”
“Dr. Hammoudeh is amazing! He is confident, caring, and passionate about his work, very professional and knowledgeable as well. I have had two previous rhinoplasties by an expert and was unsatisfied with the appearance and had difficulty breathing. My nose was completely collapsed. He did a major reconstruction – he used my rib cartilage to reconstruct my nose. I am very happy!”

“I got a breast augmentation with Dr. Hammoudeh and his work was outstanding. I love the results and he did everything possible to accommodate my availability. Overall, great experience and very professional.”
~ Breast Augmentation patient
“I had an excellent experience with Dr. Hammoudeh. He removed my old saline breast implants and replaced them with new silicone implants. He also did a mastopexy. I got an excellent result!
Dr. Hammoudeh has an excellent bedside manner and answered all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Hammoudeh”
“I have had a few surgeons in my days in Newport Beach and they do not compare to the knowledge and techniques that Dr Hammoudeh knows and uses in his OR.”
“Dr. Hammoudeh has a sweet bedside manner, is very attentive and covers all grounds to make sure he does a fantastic job. I am thrilled with my results and am so very glad I made the trip up to MDR from Huntington Beach. Priceless!!!”
“Oh my goodness!! I can’t begin to describe what a great surgeon Dr. Ziyad Hammoudeh is in the quality of his surgical abilities but most of all the compassionate care he shows to his patients. Something I appreciate tremendously!
I just retired from 43 years of working in the capacity as a RN who worked with difficult patients in the Emergency Department, critical care and post anesthesia. So for me-I knew the risks involved having this procedure. He did his best to explain and answer all my questions and during my recovery period was always kind, patient, and understanding. I’ve recommended him to several of my friends and relatives. Of all the interviews I did prior to my procedure he was the one that stood out the most and I was correct in choosing him over anyone else. My results are outstanding!! My abdomen looks that of a 25 year-old with a perfect belly button. I’m 8 weeks post op and healing nicely! I plan to go back and use him for some Botox on my forehead. I’m sure he’ll be the same Dr.Z always professional yet always made me feel comfortable. Highly qualified and compassionate plastic surgeon! BTW-the staff @ Marina Plastic Surgery is just amazing; friendly, efficient, and helpful. Thanks Dr.Z!”
