About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

Dr. Toth is an internationally recognized aesthetic surgeon who resides and practices in San Francisco, California. His Plastic Surgical training was at the Massachusetts General Hospital, the primary teaching hospital for the Harvard Medical School. He has published over 60 journal articles, 14 book chapters, and six instructional videotapes and has been co-editor of two books on plastic surgery. He is currently on the editorial board of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the international journal of cosmetic surgery. Dr Toth has been invited to demonstrate new techniques in cosmetic surgery by lecturing and performing live surgery in a variety of venues including Paris, Milan, Copenhagen, Capetown, Sao Paolo, Moscow and Shanghai.

Dr Toth’s practice goals are to provide compassionate and detailed care for his patients. Every patient provides a unique set of challenges and Dr. Toth individualizes his care to meet the needs of each and every patient. In plastic surgery, this requires great attention to detail in an effort to restore or recreate a youthful, natural appearance, whether it is a facelift, rhinoplasty, breast or body contouring surgery. He is dedicated to creating a natural appearance rather than an artificial or operated look.
In addition to cosmetic surgery, Dr. Toth has a commitment to children with facial deformity and spends five days a month operating on children with cleft lip, cleft palate and major intracranial deformities.
