It was a sunny day in the city of Los Angeles. Dr. Cat Begovic was sitting in her office at Dr. Cat plastic surgery, looking through her morning mail. She had been a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills for five years, and she had never been happier. She opened an envelope from the American Medical Association with a smile on her face. She had gotten an award for being one of the top doctors in Southern California!
She put down her pen and took a moment to reflect on how far she’d come since high school—when she first volunteered at the local hospital and fell in love with surgery. The rebellious teenager who bucked against authority had become one of the most sought-after plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills—and she couldn’t have done it without her incomparable record of academic excellence, which included perfect SAT scores and being ranked as one of the top 25 high school students nationally by USA Today.
After graduating from Harvard University with honors, where she majored in Molecular and Cellular Biology, Dr. Cat went on to attend UCLA where she took a special interest in aesthetic research publishing many papers in plastic surgery journals on the topic.
