• What sets us apart

    I was recently asked by a friend what I thought was the thing that sets us apart from other practices in the area. My answer was twofold- I think it is a combination of technology and experience. The two examples that I gave were the Keller Funnel and CoolSculpting. We have the most experience with […]

  • Breast Implant size

    Patients spend a lot of time in the office discussing size of the breast implant that they want. Nearly every day I hear patients say one of two things.

We are seeing more and more gynecomastia patients, and more male patients in general here in our Santa Barbara plastic surgery practice. Treatment of gynecomastia with liposuction can be very successful, with or without the addition of an excision […]

  • Natural Appearing Breast Implants

    In the course of my discussions about creating the most natural appearing breast augmentations, I always review the reasoning that I use the dual plane technique with my patients.

  • Coming from Beverly Hills for Plastic Surgery

    We are seeing more and more women come from Beverly Hills and Hollywood to have their plastic surgery in Santa Barbara. I find this a very interesting phenomenon.
