About Dr. Prabhat K. Bhama
Professional Statement
Prabhat K. Bhama, MD, specializes in facial reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery at Providence Medical Group in Everett, Washington.

Dr. Bhama has special expertise in performing facial reanimation surgery to manage facial paralysis and other facial-nerve disorders; rhinoplasty (nose-reshaping surgery) and complex revision rhinoplasty; managing skin cancer, including performing Mohs surgery and reconstruction surgery; and brow lifts, forehead lifts, and blepharoplasty (eyelid lift).

He offers a number of non-surgical treatments, as well — both cosmetic and medical — including treatments for sinusitis, nasal obstruction, and facial paralysis; BOTOX®; dermal fillers; “mini facelifts”; fat-transfer injections; and referrals to other specialists, such as physical therapists for patients with facial paralysis. Using local anesthesia, he performs these minimally invasive outpatient procedures in the practice’s state-of-the-art procedure rooms.

“I’m not one who signs everyone up for surgery — either medical or cosmetic — and I won’t do surgery on someone who isn’t a candidate for it,” he says.

Prospective patients can feel comfortable knowing that Dr. Bhama is not only highly trained and experienced, he believes in treating his patients like family.

“And because I’ve had ill family members and seen what they’ve gone through, I always try to care for patients like I’d want my own family to be cared for.”

Dr. Bhama works in the Division of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett. He also has traveled twice yearly to Alaska, where he performs surgery.

He cares for both adults and children, and is licensed to practice in Washington and Alaska.

Dr. Bhama earned his medical degree with honors at University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He completed a surgery residency, an NIH-funded research fellowship, and a five-year residency in otolaryngology–head and neck surgery at University of Washington Medicine.

He served for two years as the William W. Montgomery Fellow in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary/Harvard Medical School — one of the busiest U.S. centers for the treatment of facial-nerve conditions — and as a clinical instructor at Harvard.

He also holds a master’s degree in public health (clinical effectiveness) from Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Dr. Bhama is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and is certified by both the American Board of Otolaryngology and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

In addition to his clinical practice, he serves as a clinical instructor of otolaryngology - head and neck surgery at UW Medicine/University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. He has authored more than 40 academic articles and book chapters and is a regularly invited speaker at surgical and medical conferences.

Dr. Bhama was born and raised in Michigan. He and his family live in Seattle, and he also owns a photography business. He is active with the Help Us Give Smiles (HUGS) Foundation and makes annual mission trips to Guatemala, where he performs no-cost reconstructive surgery on people born without ears.

Q&A with the doctor

What are some common causes of “treatable” facial paralysis?

Facial paralysis can be caused by a stroke, as well as conditions such as Bell’s palsy and Ramsay Hunt syndrome, trauma, and both cancerous and benign tumors. While most people who have an episode of Bell’s palsy suffer from temporary facial paralysis, in about 30 percent of patients there is some permanent disability.

You perform many rhinoplasty surgeries to treat medical concerns such as nasal deformities and nasal obstructions. What are some common causes of operable nasal obstructions?

It depends on the patient and condition, but in general, operable nasal obstructions are commonly caused by things like a deviated septum, prior injury or trauma to the nose, congenital deformities, and severe chronic inflammation inside the nose caused by allergies.

I do perform cosmetic rhinoplasty, sometimes in conjunction with a functional surgery I’m already doing on a patient’s nose.
