Facial plastic surgery south bay has become a common and acceptable way to improve one's appearance in order to achieve a more youthful and beautiful look. Both facial plastic surgeons and general plastic surgeons perform facial plastic surgery. Facial plastic surgeons have at least 6 years of specialization in head & neck surgery alone while general plastic surgeons have at least 2 years of general surgical training with 4 years of plastic surgical training.
The most common facial plastic surgery procedures are rhinoplasty (nose job), blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), rhytidectomy (face lift), cervicoplasty (neck lift), and various augmentation procedures. These procedures are all very popular in Beverly Hills, Orange County and the South Bay. Any facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon in south bay can perform these surgeries with skill and competence. Many plastic surgeons south bay specialize in a certain procedure or a few individual procedures. Therefore, a very important question to ask during your consultation is whether your surgeon performs that specific procedure very often.
Nose jobs south bay are undoubtedly the most complex facial plastic surgery south bay case and any plastic surgeon will corroborate this. Each nose job is different and this particular surgery is the most meticulous and precise of all. Each person's nose should perfectly fit their face without drawing attention away from important more elements such as the eyes and mouth. Hence, this procedure is very popular among both young and middle aged individuals alike. Nose jobs can both improve appearance and improve breathing. Since healthy breathing is of the utmost importance, be sure to address all of your breathing issues with your surgeon during the initial consultation so the best surgical plan can be devised.
Eyelid surgery south bay is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures and it is often performed for people in their 30's through 60's. Eyelid surgery will get rid of excess skin and heaviness on the upper eyelids and it will eliminate "bags" under the eyes and laxity of the lower eyelids. This particular surgery is quick and simple and can be performed under local anesthesia, moderate sedation, or general anesthesia. This surgery is definitely one of the top procedures performed by any plastic surgeon in south bay. The surgery will stop a person from looking tired and aged due to their "bags" or heavy eyelids.
Facelifts south bay are an extremely common surgery for both women and men in their 50's through 70's. A facelift will eliminate heavy jowls, sagging facial tissue, and loose necks. This surgery will often make a person look 10-15 years younger in a few simple hours. There are many different types of facelifts so make sure to discuss what type of lift your surgeon is planning on performing. A plastic surgeon south bay is likely to perform a facelift that addresses deeper tissues and muscles to give more longevity to the procedure. Facelifts that only address the skin do not last as long as ones which address the deeper layers and muscles.
Neck lifts south bay are like a simplified facelift in that they address the neck only and not the jowls or sagging tissues of the mid face. A neck lift will get rid of fullness under the chin ("turkey gobbler"), loose neck skin, wrinkles in the neck, and bands in the neck. This procedure is safe and common for people who are healthy and want a neck that looks like it did in their youth. This procedure is most likely to be performed by a facial plastic or plastic surgeon in south bay and not a general surgeon. If you don't already know a good surgeon, start by asking friends and colleagues before doing your research on the Internet. If you cannot find a surgeon with whom you are satisfied, ask your physician or contact and organization like the American Academy of Facial Plastic Surgery.
Facial augmentation south bay procedures can enhance many different facial regions. The most common of these procedures are chin augmentation, lip augmentation, and cheek augmentation. Chin and cheek augmentation are usually performed with solid implants that are compatible with the body's tissues.

There are many different theories on which materials are best for each augmentation so be sure to discuss the risks and benefits of each. We offer a breadth of services including Scar Removal South Bay, Fat Augmentation South Bay and much more. If you live in Palos Verdes, Torrance, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach or Manhattan Beach, and you would like to have surgery locally, your plastic surgeon south bay is the best person with whom to discuss your augmentation procedure.
As corny as it may seem, I feel that plastic surgery is more of a calling than a forethought decision. I would venture to guess that 99% of all surgeons are type A personalities and that plastic surgeons are no different. On the other hand, plastic surgeons differ slightly in that they have an artistic component (type B personality) to their overwhelming goal-driven type A personality. Plastic surgery is, therefore, an elegant amalgamation of art and work ethic which cohabitate in a generally harsh surgical world.
The challenges of facial plastic surgery are what make it most desirable to me. People are always wanting to feel better about themselves and look younger but not different. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that most patients are cautious when it comes to deciding whether or not to have surgery on their face. The preconceived notion that all plastic surgery patients are going to look "done" or look like some Hollywood starlet should be quashed. Patients looking into plastic surgery south bay have very different expectations than those looking for plastic surgery in Hollywood. These expectations should be addressed in a straight forward manner so the patient and doctor are on the same page. To obtain optimal results, I think the surgeon must both value and appreciate the humanistic element of the doctor-patient relationship; without this appreciation, I feel results are often less than ideal. I have come to realize that surgery is just as much about relationships as it is about technical prowess...although both are essential.
Practicing plastic surgery in South Bay is the most rewarding job I can imagine. The demographic of people is amazing and day-to day work is a pleasure. Unlike most people, I wake up each morning with an excited anticipation for what the day might bring. I love going to work and each day offers a new experience with wonderful people. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't learn something new from my patients. Likewise, there is rarely a day that passes where I don't have the opportunity to teach. Teaching is one of my passions and this is why I have stayed an active instructor and faculty at the USC Keck School of Medicine. My private practice resides in Redondo Beach, but I am regularly at USC for the opportunity to teach young, and up-coming physicians.
So why did I choose to perform plastic surgery in South Bay and not New York, Miami, Beverly Hills or Newport Beach? The answer is simple...South Bay is home. I spent 7 years away from California while training at the best institutions in the nation...yet I always knew I would return home. It is very rewarding to give back to the community that raised you and made you who you are. Reintegrating into one's childhood community offers reconnecting with family, old friends, mentors and now-colleagues. There is an element of altruism which makes community function properly since there is dedication towards others in the community and not just one's self.
Although I operate in Beverly Hills, my practice is in Redondo Beach and plastic surgery south bay is a very different experience. The South Bay clientele makes practicing medicine a pleasure. Although a drive to Beverly Hills is required on the day of surgery, this has not been a deterrent. I hope to become an integral contributor and valued member of the larger community of Palos Verdes, Torrance, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach. Therefore, practicing plastic surgery in South Bay can become a legacy of which I will be proud and never tire.
