Practice Specialization

Dr. Paul specializes in Cosmetic Surgery including:

Endoscopic facial surgery
Face and neck lifts
Mid-facelift
Surgical rejuvenation of the midface is performed without visible incisions using an incision behind the hairline and intraorally to elevate the sagging tissues that contribute to the hollow appearance of the central face. The result is a more youthful lid/cheek interface with restoration of contour and volume.

Periorbital surgical procedures
Limited incisioned facelifts and neck contouring
Body contouring (power-assisted suction lipectomy, traditional suction-assisted lipectomy, abdominoplasty and thigh lift)
Cosmetic breast surgery (augmentation mammoplasty, mastopexy and breast reduction with liposuction)

Your Consultation

Your comprehensive consultation includes meeting with me to discuss your concerns and my recommendations based upon a careful evaluation and the use of computer imaging to communicate the expected goals of the procedure(s) that are discussed. You will also meet Viktoriya Bul, RN. Viktoriya will provide you with skin care recommendations on how to possibly prevent or delay the need for surgical procedures. Should you choose to have surgical procedure she will help you to prepare, maximize, enhance, and preserve the results of your cosmetic surgery. To arrange for a comprehensive skin evaluation with Viktoriya, please call 714-354-5981 or email: achievebestskin@yahoo.com.
With your goals in mind we have developed a superior aesthetic practice incorporating state of the art surgery with state of the art skin care.
