We focus solely on the face and neck. Our passion is to improve a patient's quality of life by rejuvenating their face from an aesthetic and functional standpoint. To be able to turn back the clock and allow a patient to look more youthful, energized and happy without the obvious signs of surgery is the goal. Happiness is critical to our well-being and delivering happiness is what we strive for each and every day for our patients. From skin care and minimally involved procedures to the most complex surgeries on the face, our goal is to be your face expert.
Our aesthetic facial plastic surgery faculty are board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in order to assure the highest level of expertise in surgical procedures of the face and neck. They have pioneered many of the surgical procedures used today in facial aesthetic surgery and have combined experiences totaling tens of thousands of patients over 50 plus years of practice.
Our reconstructive expertise leads the nation with an unsurpassed 99.5% success rate of microvascular (free flap) surgeries in nearly 2000 cases encompassing over 20 years at UCLA. As face experts, we are now embarking upon performing the first total face transplant surgery on the West Coast and we look forward to leading this exciting period for UCLA.
As a division of the UCLA Head and Neck Surgery Department, success is part of everything we do. Our department is recognized as the #1 program in Los Angeles, #1 at UCLA and #2 in the nation.
The Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery fellowship is a one-year training program, established in 1998 and certified by the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. It offers a broad exposure to both aesthetic and reconstructive surgery for graduates of an accredited head and neck residency.
