About Bivik Shah:

Dr. Bivik Shah started the Columbus Institute of Plastic Surgery, serving Columbus and Dayton, Ohio, because he wanted to create an environment in a private practice setting that left every patient satisfied and comfortable. He strives to make his patients feel cared for and important as they attempt to meet each and every medical and personal need. 

Dr. Shah grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He earned an electrical engineering degree from the University of Michigan before returning to Ohio to attend medical school at Ohio State University. Dr. Shah later joined the faculty of Ohio State University, where he was responsible for performing surgery on some of the city's most complicated burn and reconstruction cases.

Dr. Shah is actively involved in Operation Smile, which provides voluntary care to children around the world and in the United States who are born with facial deformities. Dr. Shah has been on four separate Operation Smile missions, visiting Thailand, India, Honduras, and Bolivia to provide care to children born with cleft lip and cleft palate deformities. During the Operation Smile missions, which last for one or two weeks, Dr. Shah, and fellow volunteers operate for charity on about 100-150 children, providing them with new smiles and a renewed hope for the future.

Dr. Shah is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Burn Association, the Ohio State Medical Association, and the Columbus Medical Association.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Shah put me at ease immediately when meeting with him. He allowed me the freedom to feel comfortable and come as many times as I needed to talk to him, or his nurses and assistants, to ask questions or try out different sizes of implants. He and his staff were easy to communicate with by text, and helped make everything so easy to manage. They were helpful in scheduling and understanding when I needed to reschedule. I've never had surgery, so I was very much concerned about how it would go. The surgery and pre-op was great and I credit his nurses for that. They made me feel confident and comfortable. The recovery was easy and I only wish I had done it sooner.

My consultation went really well. Dr Shivok was extremely informative, and answered all my questions. He made me feel very comfortable and was respectful and kind.

Breast Augmentation

Everyone is very nice and professional. I felt comfortable, safe and excited. Everything is explained in great detail. No question is ignored or treated poorly. Everything was well organized from my initial consultation to my pre-op appointment to the surgery. I greatly appreciated any time I called, I received a response rather quickly. The ability to get texts for reminder appointments to answering questions was a plus!! Highly highly recommend!

Tummy Tuck

Dr Shah and his staff were perfect, very friendly, understanding and always available to answer questions. Dr Shah made himself available when I called after surgery with some small concerns, everything turned out great and am blessed to have them in my corner.

Buttock Implants

Dr Shah explained the surgery and what to expect after. He made me feel very comfortable. The staff was great and booking the surgery was easy

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Shah was the most professional medical experience I've ever had. He didn't make me feel rushed to perform surgery and take my money. He was very informative and talked to me to make sure I understood his expectations for me and he was super understanding of the expectations I had for myself. His staff were all so very sweet, friendly and helpful. Julia is the best hands down. She was so reassuring and excited for me. After 4 C-sections, I was tired of my Panties rolling underneath my belly and Dr. Shah delivered above and beyond my expectations. I have perfect scar placement, belly button is beautiful and I am beyond satisfied with my results. He changed my life and I recommend him to anybody looking into a tummy tuck.. Do It, You Won't Be Disappointed

Breast Augmentation

I arrived early for my appointment. When I was finally brought back for the pictures, the MA/Nurse realized there was no room available so I had to wait in that picture room until one can become available. When one became available, I also waited additional time in the exam room to see the doctor. When the doctor finally arrived after an hour passed my scheduled time, he seem confused and was not informed of what I needed to be seen for. We had a brief consultation. I scheduled my surgery even tho I'm dissatisfied as I'm already being charged $75. I didn't want any money to go to waste.

Breast Lift

Both Dr Shah and the nurses were kind and respectful. The atmosphere was peaceful and comfortable. I was made to feel relaxed and confident with Dr Shah performing my surgery

Breast Implant Revision

Felt I was important and what I wanted done I was listened to and schedule my appointment was taken into consideration and in a very timely manner.

Revision Reconstruction

My issue has to do with asymmetrical nostrils... I'm not necessarily interested in a full revision surgery just to correct the problem.


The people were very nice and knowledgeable. Dr. Shah was great.
