Dr. Samimi was born and raised in Duesseldorf, Germany. His first experiences in medicine were from visiting his father's office, who was a well-respected pediatrician. Being raised in the fashion capital of Germany, Dr. Samimi started working as a fashion photographer during high school. This allowed him to develop an appreciation for human beauty early in his life. Graduating in the top of his class, he entered medical school in Duesseldorf. He had the opportunity to work with some of Europe's most well-known plastic surgeons during medical school and was fascinated by this field. It not only required a sound knowledge of medicine and surgical principles, but also a creative mind and appreciation of aesthetics. As his family had moved to the United States while he was in medical school, Dr. Samimi attended his clinical training in the United States. He first completed training in general surgery at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Most of his time was spent at Cook County Hospital, teaching him not only surgical skills and decision-making, but also respect and compassion for people less fortunate. His training in plastic surgery was at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Here he trained under a group of very accomplished plastic surgeons, including Dr. Graham Lister. He acquired experience in all areas of plastic surgery. He started his practice at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Two years later he became the division chief and headed the division of plastic surgery for seven years. Other than his university and cosmetic practice, Dr. Samimi provided care at the VA hospital and children's clinic. His wife and him decided to raise their children closer to their families and relocated their practices to San Diego. Dr. Samimi is now in private practice in downtown San Diego and a Clinical Associate Professor of Surgery at UCSD.
