Meet Dr. Navin Singh

DR. NAVIN SINGH

Dr. Navin Singh is a Board-Certified plastic surgeon in private practice and an Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery in the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He is also a clinical assistant professor of Neurosurgery as well as Gynecology because of his extensive experience in reconstruction of neurologic and gynecologic structures.

He is licensed in Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC and practices at Sibley, INOVA Hospitals and Reston Hospitals.

Dr. Singh is consistently named as a Top Doc by Washingtonian Magazine, Northern Virginia Magazine and Bethesda Magazine.

DOUBLE BOARD CERTIFIED

Board-Certification means the doctor cares enough to put the patient’s best interest at heart, ahead of his or her own. Board-Certification is not a one-off event. To maintain board-certification, the doctor must continue ongoing medical education (CME) to keep abreast of the latest new techniques, devices, and medications as they emerge. The doctor must maintain a license to practice medicine, pass the scrutiny of his/her peers, and maintain credentials and privileges in a hospital. It’s like a periodic check-up on the doctor’s ability and skills. Board-certification requires time and commitment.

Dr. Singh performs more than 750 procedures per year.

EXPERIENCE IN 5 DIFFERENT CONTINENTS

He is involved in philanthropy – and spends about two weeks of his personal time each year on surgical missions to Ecuador, India, Peru, Philippines, and China with Interplast, OpSmile, and CareForKids to help those less fortunate than us- performing birth defect repairs such as cleft lip and burns. As an advocate for patients, he sits on the Research Commission of the ASPS as well as the Government Affairs Committee, and is the advisor for the Breast Health Center of the National Women’s Health Resource Center, past Director of the Johns Hopkins Avon Breast Center and is currently the Director of the National Capital Breast Reconstruction Fellowship in Bethesda, and has spent 10 years teaching young residents Johns Hopkins in state of the art cosmetic surgery and reconstruction. Additionally, Navin serves as the current Chair of the Data Safety Monitoring Board for Breast Implants for Allergan, Inc.

Plastic Nation

Baltimore Magazine, July 2007

Six months ago, a woman in her late 40’s walked into Dr. Navin Singh’s office requesting a thigh lift. The plastic surgeon, director of breast reconstruction and assistant professor of plastic surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, had already performed a breast augmentation with lift and a tummy tuck on the patient—and Singh’s partner had performed a facelift, eyelid surgery, and rhinoplasty on her, as well—but she wanted more.

The procedure would leave a sizeable scar, Singh warned her, but she remained eager to pursue it. The surgeon got the feeling that the woman was “seeking the thrill” of the procedure, and “just didn’t have a reasonable expectation of what a thigh lift involved.” She was the classic plastic surgery addict, out for body-altering surgery for all the wrong reasons, he explains. So he turned her down.
