Meet Dr. Anureet Bajaj
Plastic Surgeon in Oklahoma City
Dr. Anureet Bajaj is a board-certified plastic surgeon who was raised, educated, and trained in the United States. She is licensed to practice surgery in four states, including Oklahoma, where she works alongside her father.
After growing up in Oklahoma City, Anureet Bajaj moved to Houston and attended Rice University, where she majored in English and history. She later attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. While in medical school, she witnessed several extensive cancer resections, which left patients with severe disfigurements. After seeing how plastic surgeons were able to restore the appearance of the cancer patients, Dr. Bajaj decided to follow in her father’s footsteps by pursuing a career in plastic surgery.
Dr. Bajaj completed her residency at Loma Linda Medical Center, CA, and was trained in microvascular and reconstructive plastic surgery at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. As a result of her experiences in medical school, she became passionate about reconstructive surgery after cancer. While other treatments seek to treat sickness and disease, plastic surgery is the only specialty that can restore patients and make them whole again.
Unlike other surgeons who choose not to perform reconstructive surgery after developing a cosmetic surgery practice, Dr. Bajaj remains committed to breast reconstructive surgery. She is among the few surgeons who perform the DIEP flap procedure for breast reconstruction. She also performs breast enhancement, breast reduction, tummy tucks, facelifts, and other plastic surgical procedures.
Dr. Bajaj enjoys the flexibility of plastic surgery, as there are usually multiple ways to address the same problem, and she can develop customized treatment plans with her patients. By listening to her patients and discussing their surgical options, Dr. Bajaj works to ensure that everyone receives the best possible results from their surgery. She knows that a few extra minutes of speaking with a patient can make all the difference in the world.
A highly active member of the plastic surgery community, Dr. Bajaj has published numerous articles in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the Journal of Craniofacial Surgery, and other medical periodicals. As a result, Dr. Bajaj stays in touch with plastic surgeons across the country, and keeps abreast of the latest developments in her field. She previously served as an Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery at the University of Cincinnati, as well as the Chief of Plastic Surgery at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Cincinnati.
In the past, Dr. Bajaj has presented at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons Annual Meeting and the Plastic Surgery Research Council, and has been an invited speaker for the Ohio Valley Society of Plastic Surgery, Chesapeake Energy Corporation, and other groups.
She has been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery since 2005 and holds membership in the following organizations:
- American Society of Plastic Surgeons
- American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery
- American Association for Hand Surgery (Candidate)
- American Medical Association
- Oklahoma State Medical Association
- Oklahoma County Medical Society
Known for her friendly relationships with her patients, Dr. Bajaj also enjoys long-distance running, drawing, painting, and reading. Her family’s plastic surgery clinic in Oklahoma City offers a warm, inviting environment where patients are treated like individuals.
