Dr. Movassaghi featured in Eugene Magazine “Health & Wellness” Fall 2012

eugene mag fall 2012 coverWhen Dr. Kiya Movassaghi opened his cosmetic surgery practice in Eugene in 2002, there were few options available besides surgery for those looking to tighten skin in certain areas of the body and remove unwanted fat.

“The gap between surgery and no surgery was wide, and there was nothing in between,” says Movassaghi. It was with this in mind that he sought out the latest in noninvasive technologies for body contouring and skin tightening for his practice’s Ziba Medical Spa.

When Dr. Movassaghi moved into his new office at Garden Way Medical Center in 2008, he set it up to include the expanded services of Ziba Medical Spa. He was seeing patients who could benefit from ongoing skin care, patients who could benefit from post-surgical skincare, and patients who were not ready for surgery but wanted to maintain their skin. “I realized very quickly that a medical spa where I could provide these kinds of advanced skincare treatments under medical supervision was necessary,” says Movassaghi.

Ziba (“beautiful” in Persian) offers a wide spectrum of medical-grade spa treatments, including microdermabrasion, peels, laser vein treatment, and laser hair removal & cosmetic laser treatment. “Teaching our patients about great skincare and helping them maintain their skin is part of the whole program,” says practice administrator and office manager Niloo Marashi.

“I not only enjoy doing the surgery, I enjoy the artistic part of it,” says Movassaghi, a Harvard Medical School graduate who also completed his plastic surgery training there. “I see firsthand the impact that I have on people’s lives because I am changing the shape of something they carry with them their whole lives. I think that is a wonderful thing.”
