If you are not satisfied with your appearance, or have a medical condition or injury that has altered your function or appearance, plastic surgery can help you look and feel better. Our team of plastic surgeons takes time to listen, ask questions and work with you to come up with a treatment plan that is effective, healthy and meets your expectations. We are respectful of the body and we are respectful of you.

We collaborate in a multidisciplinary atmosphere and have the medical authority of San Diego’s only academic health system. That means our plastic surgeons offer you the highest level of care, advanced surgical and nonsurgical treatments, specialized microsurgery techniques and the newest technologies in the field. 

We are experts in addressing cosmetic concerns — from body contouring and feature reshaping to noninvasive fillers for reducing the signs of aging.

Some of the conditions we treat include:

  • Birthmarks
  • Burn injuries
  • Cancers
  • Cleft lift and palate
  • Congenital disorders
  • Craniofacial abnormalities (Crouzon, Apert and other syndromes) 
  • Hand disorders (carpal tunnel, rheumatoid arthritis, Dupuytren’s contracture) 
  • Craniomaxillofacial trauma
  • Hemifacial spasms 
  • Obesity 
  • Skin disorders 
  • Vascular anomalies 
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Chronic wounds 

Our plastic surgeons work collaboratively with other specialists — such as oncologists, gynecologists, dermatologists, bariatric and orthopedic surgeons — to provide you excellent comprehensive patient-centered care.
