Kamran Khoobehi, MD

Kamran Khoobehi, MD is a board certified plastic surgeon at Khoobehi & Associates in New Orleans, Louisiana. He is one of the few plastic surgeons in the New Orleans area to perform DIEP flap breast reconstruction, a method in which the patient’s own tissue is used to create soft, natural-looking breasts. Dr. Khoobehi also offers ResensationSM, a highly advanced surgical technique designed to restore breast sensation as part of autologous (free flap) reconstruction surgery after a mastectomy.

Aesthetically, women can look great after reconstruction. But now we can offer a more complete reconstruction. With Resensation, we can also provide sensation.
