Dr. Sameer Jejurikar has become one of Dallas’ top plastic surgeons over the past two decades. He has been practicing plastic surgery in Dallas, Texas for over 21 years. Becoming a top plastic surgeon came with a lot of hard work and countless hours. Dr. Jejurikar got his medical degree from the University of Michigan, a top 25 medical school. He then did his residency at Manhattan Ear, Nose and Throat. He put in at times over 100 hours a week dedicating himself to learning and becoming a cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon in his 20’s.
His strong work ethic comes from the belief of Malcom Gladwell’s rule of 10,000 hours. He is a strong believer that to achieve and master a craft or profession you must follow this philosophy. Today, with business doing well and the strong influx of population growth in the Dallas area, he focuses his efforts not only doing surgeries, but traveling and attending national plastic surgery meetings. Dr. Sameer wants to be up to date on the latest and greatest in plastic surgery.
He is not only committed to his private practice in Dallas, but advocating to make plastic surgery safer and more effective worldwide. He has taken trips internationally to help those in poorer countries in need of plastic surgery. For example in 2010, he went to Bangledesh with the group “Smile Bangledesh”, to provide treatment for cleft lip deformations.
Dr. Jejurikar attributes his success with putting in the countless hours during residency for the benefit he now has with having a strong work and personal life balance. He spends about a day and a half in the office and the rest of the time doing surgeries. With all of his hard work, he is now able to spend time and take trips with his 3 children.
