Staff & Facilities

Surgical Facility

Located in the heart of Sonoma County, our facilities include a new, state-of-the-art, 6000 sq. ft. aesthetic surgery center housed in a Mediterranean-style building. Inside, you will find inviting offices and an innovative Medical Spa, to bring you all the latest non-surgical rejuvenation techniques. For your privacy and comfort, our in-house certified surgical suite features two operating rooms and a three-bed recovery suite. Our staff looks forward to meeting all of the women and men who visit us from areas like Napa and Marin for plastic surgery.

Surgery Suite
We are proud to offer a fully accredited, private operating room for your safety and comfort. The facility has been accredited to the highest standards by a national certifying agency, the American Association for the Accreditation of Surgical Facilities.

Why is a certified facility important?Although some cosmetic procedures are being carried out in facilities that are not certified, we believe that there is no higher goal than patient safety. In order to be certified, our facility had to go through rigorous inspection to make sure that our standards were as high as the national accrediting agency. In addition to complying with all OSHA standards, we also have to comply with strict instrument sterilization standards and we carry state-of-the-art monitoring equipment.
We are committed to protecting your health information. This "Protected Health Information," called "PHI," is protected by law.

Payment Options

Because each cosmetic surgery procedure we perform is unique, it is not possible to provide a fee quote without first assessing your cosmetic needs and reviewing your options. We will of course provide a full and detailed explanation of fees during your consultation appointment. If you have particular questions about plastic surgery costs, please contact us online or call (707) 537-2111.
To help make cosmetic surgery affordable for our patients, we offer several financing options to fit your budget.
