From 1982 to 1995, Don practiced Ophthalmology and Oculoplastic Surgery in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Remaining at the University of San Diego School of Law for an additional year, Don earned a Master of Laws degree, cum laude, in Health Law. 

Returning to Las Vegas in 1999, Don served as a lawclerk for a District Court Judge while practicing medicine part-time. From 2001 to 2008, he worked as the executive director and legal counsel for the Clark County Medical Society. Following a stint as Executive Director of the Nevada Board of Osteopathic Medicine, Don received a full-time appointment to the faculty of Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine, where he currently serves as an Associate Dean, Professor and Director Medical Jurisprudence, and Professor of Ophthalmology, while practicing General Ophthalmology part-time.

Paul Nassif, MD, FACS

Plastic Surgeons

"Botched! What It’s Like to Have Your Own TV Show"

You’ve seen it on TV, now find out what it’s like to star in it. Paul Nassif, MD, FACS, co-star of E! Entertainment’s hit show “Botched” will share his experiences taping the show and performing complex revision cosmetic procedures with video clips and personal stories. 

One of the best-known and most trusted plastic surgeons in the world, Paul Nassif, M.D., F.A.C.S. is recognized for his pioneering techniques as a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon based in Beverly Hills, California. Creator of the popular Nassif MD skincare brand, he also brings his deep knowledge and engaging personality to television audiences as one of the stars of the E! Entertainment hit show “Botched” and its spin-off, “Botched by Nature.”

Dr. Nassif just wrapped the third season of “Botched” alongside Dr. Terry Dubrow. Together they took on some of the most complex revision procedures in the world. The show’s success also prompted a second series, “Botched by Nature,” which recently concluded its first season following Drs. Nassif and Dubrow as they travel the country to improve the lives of patients afflicted by traumatic incidents or genetics. In the realm of reality television, Dr. Nassif has also been featured on the E! series “Dr. 90210” and “Hollywood Medium,” as well as the first three seasons of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

As a highly skilled surgeon, Dr. Nassif has earned a reputation in reconstructive surgery for the face and nose. He is sought after by patients from around the world for his specialty in revision and ethnic rhinoplasty, and is equally recognized as a leading expert in aging face surgery. Using precise techniques developed through years of experience, Dr. Nassif skillfully conceals incisions through minimally invasive procedures that reduce the evidence of scars.

Inspired to develop a product line with highly active ingredients that provide the skin with a youthful radiance, Dr. Nassif created the Nassif MD skincare brand. "Nassif MD Bio-Clock Dermaceuticals" is currently available exclusively via HSN, and was designed to specifically address aging. Harnessing advanced technology, Bio-Clock targets the main causes of aging; it reduces fine lines and wrinkles, promotes hydration, moisturizes the skin and boosts collagen levels. Dr. Nassif also created "Nassif MD Bio-Rhythmic Skincare," the first skincare line to specifically address bio-rhythmic changes that we experience and the effects these changes have on the skin.

Coveted as a plastic surgery expert, Dr. Nassif has been featured as a guest on such television talk shows as “Dr. Oz” and “The Doctors” and in countless print publications, from USA Today to The Wall Street Journal.
