Welcome Dr. Jennifer Ahdout
I am proud and excited to introduce Dr. Jennifer Ahdout as my new associate at Spalding Drive Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology. Dr. Ahdout will serve as the new Director of Dermatology, laser and skin care with a focus on medical dermatology and facial cosmetics. Although I have provided patients in my practice with dermatologic care, my focus has traditionally been on surgical and cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction and facial rejuvenation. With the addition of Dr. Ahdout, we will be expanding our scope of traditional medical dermatology to encompass acne, skin checks, and more complex medical conditions, while building upon our repertoire of facial cosmetic services.
Dr. Ahdout is a charming, intelligent, caring physician with outstanding doctoring skills. I am truly honored to have her join me. Her incorporation into Spalding Drive will allow greater access for our patients seeking dermatology appointments with reduced wait times.
Dr. Ahdout additionally has a special interest in cosmetic dermatologic laser and skin care procedures. She has an extremely personalized and thoughtful approach to patient care. Her approach is modeled after my own philosophy for non-surgical facial rejuvenation which is a simple 4 step approach: relaxation, repositioning, recontouring, and resurfacing.
Dr. Jennifer Ahdout graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from the University of California, Los Angeles with a Bachelors of Science in Psychobiology. She obtained her MD from UCLA with a specialization in the care of underserved communities. She graduated with Alpha Omega Alpha honors, the highest level of recognition for excellence in scholarship and ideals in the profession of medicine. She has received a number of accolades including the American Medical Women’s Association Glasgow-Rubin Citation for Academic Excellence, the UCLA Chancellor’s Service Award as well as scholarships including the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery Scholarship and the North American Hair Research Scholarship. Dr. Ahdout’s greatest contribution to the community at large is her leadership role in the establishment of a free Dermatology Clinic in Orange County to serve the needs of the uninsured population.
Following an internship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in medicine, Dr. Ahdout completed her residency in Dermatology at the University of California, Irvine where she served as the chief of volunteer and satellite clinics. Dr. Ahdout has conducted research on psoriasis, including the modifiable lifestyle factors associated with metabolic syndrome in this population. She has co-authored a noteworthy paper in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology on the pivotal role of topical and oral vitamins in photo aging. She also has an interest in hair loss and has authored a paper on a unique pattern of alopecia related to hair styling practices as well as a hair chapter in a prominent dermatology textbook.
