Nidal (Nick) Masri MD
Originally from Louisville, Kentucky, Dr. Nick Masri received his undergraduate degree from Indiana University and subsequently attended The Medical College of Pennsylvania. He then completed a General Surgery residency at Mount Sinai Medical Center of Greater Miami, which was followed by a Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery residency at The University of Miami/ Jackson Memorial Hospital. Doctor Masri has longstanding ties to the South Florida medical community. He is also certified by both The American Board of Surgery and The American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Dr Masri is proficient in all aspects of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Many of his interests include post bariatric plastic surgery, lower body lifts, abdominoplasty (tummy tucks), and surgery of the breast. He enjoys microsurgery and reconstructive surgery of the breast as well. He excels in the uses of cosmetic dermal fillers for facial rejuvenation and several of their nonsurgical indications.
High BMI Doctor Masri
With over 20 years of experience operating on post-bariatric and massive weight loss patients, Dr. Masri has seen it all – including patients who are often turned down by numerous plastic surgeons because of their high BMI.
He does not use BMI as a sole criterion in determining one’s candidacy for surgery. As all patients have individualized goals and surgical nuances, a high BMI should not prevent them from achieving his/her plastic surgery goals.
Knowing full well that everyone should be allowed to enjoy the body of their dreams, Dr. Masri offers plastic surgery to qualified patients with a body mass index of up to 45* – considered morbidly obese in BMI standards and rejected by other surgeons.

Here’s Why the Hospital is the Best Place to Get Your Plastic Surgery
When it comes to safety, I’d never trade the hospital for a plastic surgery clinic, even if the latter’s cheaper.
They’re better equipped than clinics.
Granted that plastic surgery complications are rare, it’s still an operation that comes with its own set of risks, regardless of your surgeon’s expertise.
Doing your cosmetic surgery in a hospital gives you the peace of mind that whatever happens, you’re surrounded by qualified practitioners and essential equipment — all ready to assist you should something happen.
In other words, you’re in the safest environment possible for your surgery.
You can get general anesthesia without a hitch.
Do you know the reason why most plastic surgeons use a combination of local anesthesia and intravenous sedation for their surgeries? It’s because they don’t have the necessary anesthesia equipment in their clinics.
Usually, there’s no problem with such practice. But there have been cases of lidocaine toxicity among patients who had an overdose of local anesthesia during their plastic surgeries.
If you get your surgery in a hospital, you can have your operation under general anesthesia. Your anesthesiologist will insert an anesthetic ventilator in your airway while you’re asleep so that you’re in your most comfortable state possible.
You have 24/7 access to post-operative care.
The thing with plastic surgery clinics is that they only do outpatient procedures. So when you get your breast augmentation in the morning, you have to go home at the end of the day and recuperate at home.
But if you’re in a hospital, you have the option of staying overnight or until you’re ready to go home. Licensed medical and nursing staff can monitor your condition and attend to your needs better.
