Jason Agran, MD, PhD Medical Director of WIFH

About Dr. Jason Agran

Medical Director of WIFH, Jason Agran, M.D., Ph.D. is an experienced and compassionate surgical professional, who recently was recruited to Atlanta to lead our WIFH clinical team and broaden our aesthetic surgery practice. Dr. Agran believes in a consultative approach to patient care, investing time and understanding each patient’s unique needs before designing a customized treatment plan to achieve those goals.  His aesthetic philosophy is summarized as follows: “I want to help my patients be more comfortable in their own skin – sculpting and refining their innate beauty – not by creating an artificial appearance.”

Dr. Agran completed his internship year in General Surgery/Neurosurgery at Vanderbilt University and underwent comprehensive training including a Fellowship year in Functional Neurosurgery at Vanderbilt.  He then completed a residency in Emergency Medicine at the University of Florida and is board-certified in this field.  He has been practicing laser-assisted surgeries since 2010 and has done thousands of cosmetic procedures and cases involving the face, neck, chest, abdomen, back, and extremities.

His early interest in cosmetic surgery resulted in training with the Plastic Surgery team on complex wound revisions, infant craniofacial reconstruction, and highly visible anterior neck dissection surgeries.  He also performed cosmetic surgeries on babies still in the womb with the high-risk OB team as part of the highly publicized MOMS trial.  He is highly skilled in awake surgery including single-nerve and regional nerve blocks, as well as tumescent anesthesia techniques and conscious sedation.  He has multiple patents in the Ultrasound field and is bringing his diagnostic and targeting knowledge to benefit our patients.

As our full-time, on-site Medical Director, Dr. Agran both practices and supervises all aspects of the WIFH clinical experience including neurotoxins and HA injectables, external laser therapies, and non-invasive sculpting techniques.

Dr. Agran can occasionally be spotted riding around town with his three Great Danes.  He is the Founder of the Giant Paws Rescue Ranch and is active in the Atlanta and Southeastern US dog rescue community.
