Himansu Shah, MD, FACS
Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon in Las Vegas and Henderson, NV
When deciding to undergo plastic surgery, who you choose to perform your surgery is as important as what procedure you choose if you want to achieve the best results and have the most comfortable experience. Patients who select a board-certified plastic surgeon to perform their procedure can rest assured that they’re receiving the highest standard of care.
By choosing a doctor certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, you know that they are equipped with the most extensive education and training. They have also passed rigorous examinations to demonstrate their mastery of skills in their field.
At Signature Plastic Surgery and Dermatology, we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Himansu Shah, our board-certified plastic surgeon who has dedicated his career to patient satisfaction and educating others.
Why Dr. Shah Chose A Career in Cosmetic Surgery
Growing up, Dr. Himansu Shah developed a passion and fascination for helping others. Early on in his education, he received top marks in science and enjoyed volunteering at the local hospital after school. While he finds all things about cosmetic surgery to be fascinating, what initially attracted Dr. Shah to plastic surgery was the ability to make people look and feel their absolute best—along with the challenges that great honor presents on a day-to-day basis. Dr. Shah felt he could accomplish that whether by performing a breast augmentation, facelift, Brazilian butt lift, or a tummy tuck. Every time patients see themselves for the first time after their surgery, he feels tremendous gratitude for being able to help them achieve the look and confidence that they have been searching for their whole lives.
Education and Training
Dr. Shah’s early education began at Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey, where he graduated with honors and his bachelor’s degree. He went on to complete his medical degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry in New Jersey and then moved to New York to acquire his general surgery training at SUNY-HSC and Temple University in Pennsylvania to further his skill in Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Shah and his family relocated to Las Vegas, Nevada, so that he could pursue a career in aesthetics, hand, and microsurgery at the University of Nevada School of Medicine. There, he accepted the title of Assistant Professor and Assistant Program Director in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. With his elite education, passion for teaching, and drive to change the lives of people around him, Dr. Shah opened his own private practice and, in doing so, earned himself a number of qualifications at several accredited institutions and universities.

An Interview with Dr. Himansu Shah
Growing up, I didn’t have physicians in my family, but I was always fascinated with helping people, so naturally, I was drawn to medicine. I enjoyed science classes in school and volunteering at my local hospital after school. Through those two experiences combined, I decided to pursue a career in medicine.
I find every aspect of plastic surgery to be interesting, but cosmetic surgery is the most exciting because of how impactful it can be for patients.
It is really gratifying to see the look on a patient’s face after performing a major procedure like breast augmentation, facelift, or Brazilian butt lift. I feel tremendous gratification from helping them achieve a new look and a new sense of confidence.
Our philosophy is to allow patients to take as much time as they need to have all their questions answered, explain the procedure in detail, review the benefits and the risks, and offer alternative approaches before moving forward.
I specialize in breast augmentation, breast lift, mommy makeover, liposuction, abdominoplasty, and Brazilian butt lift.
Yes, I personally perform all injectables and neuromodulators in-office. We also offer laser treatments, facials, and a variety of medspa services.
Yes, I have over 20 staff members, including dermatologists, MOHs surgeons, physician’s assistants, Aestheticians, Nurse Administrators, Patient coordinators, and medical assistants.
