Innovative Plastic Surgeon Specializing in aesthetics

A Houston native, Dr. Saiqa Khan is a plastic surgeon focused on women’s health issues and passionate about beauty from head to toe, including nonsurgical procedures. Dr. Khan is interested in facilitating the growth of confidence and empowerment in every aspect of a woman’s life from personal relationships to professional and social life. Labiaplasty, facial rejuvenation, body contouring, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, and mommy-makeovers are just a few of the procedures Dr. Khan performs to help women feel and look their best. Women are leaders and warriors. Whether it’s pregnancy and childbirth, weight loss, conquering cancer or trauma, or inevitable aging, women endure it all with a smile on their face. It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that Dr. Khan chooses to empower and uplift women and help them look and feel their absolute best.

Dr. Saiqa Khan chose plastic surgery because she believes this is the most creative and innovative field with the most potential to empower patients. Plastic surgery transforms and liberates the body and the mind. It uplifts the spirit and leads to increased confidence, happiness, and empowerment. Her passion for plastic surgery was realized when Dr. Khan was able to combine her surgical skills with her unique talents and creativity as an artist to restore function and form, as well as a sense of wholeness and confidence that improves the lives of patients. The concept of physical and emotional healing through an operation or nonsurgical procedure, of setting a person free from their insecurities which hold them back, excites and inspires her. Dr. Khan completed her Surgery Research Fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital – Harvard Medical School, and her Plastic Surgery Fellowship training at Beth Israel Lahey Health, among other postdoctoral appointments at various respected institutions.

Her commitment to improving medical care in her field of study is evidenced by her many clinical innovations, patents, and publications. Dr. Khan was nominated for MIT Innovators Under 35 List in 2015. While completing her General Surgery training at Baystate Medical Center, Dr. Khan led the innovation of the Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Photo Viewer, a tool that allows providers to upload images to the EMR that will remain in the electronic chart and can be easily viewed by anyone who has access to the EMR. This allows providers to share physical exam findings and track response/failure to treatment.

Dr. Khan also led the way in developing the international patented Pulsed Electric Fields for hair stimulation, a technology that helps to treat alopecia. She also developed a provisionally patented system and method for implant disinfection. As an active resident member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Dr. Khan currently serves on the ASPS/Plastic Surgery Foundation Leadership Development Committee as well as the Wellness Subcommittee.
