With La Jolla Skin, the team of cosmetic surgery specialist Dr. Richard Chafoo and dermatologist Dr. Susan Stuart are uniting their dual San Diego practice.
La Jolla, California (March 2016) — La Jolla Skin, combining the talents of cosmetic surgery specialist Richard Chaffoo, M.D., FACS, FICS, and dermatologist Susan Stuart, M.D., FAAD, recently launched a new website that provides a comprehensive resource for patients considering both surgical and non-surgical approaches to skin care and aesthetic changes.
“Dr. Stuart and I have practiced as a team for many years,” says Dr. Chaffoo, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon. “We’ve established La Jolla Skin as a top-of-the-line, unique practice where patients can get all of their aesthetic and skin care needs met under one roof. Now, our new site reflects that and works perfectly as the one resource for all our patients’ needs.”
Dr. Stuart, a board-certified San Diego cosmetic dermatologist, says San Diego-area patients are sophisticated about the latest techniques and technologies available and appreciate that La Jolla Skin offers a range of advanced procedures for the face and body.
“Dr. Chaffoo and I believe our collaboration benefits our aesthetic patients because we share ideas about how best to optimize treatment plans to meet their specific needs,” Dr. Stuart says. “As one of the few practices in the nation where the plastic surgeon and dermatologist are also husband and wife, we truly work together in a way that sets us apart.”
As patients seek more comprehensive approaches to cosmetic enhancement — involving both non-surgical and surgical procedures — the 2 specialists decided it made sense to create a unified La Jolla Skin brand and website for women and men interested in both cosmetic plastic surgery and cosmetic dermatology.
Both specialists have remarkable track records of professional achievements and excellent credentials that have made them among the leaders in their respective fields. Dr. Chaffoo has earned national recognition for more than 5 consecutive years as one of the nation’s Top Doctors by Castle Connolly, as well as other honors. He trained for 9 years at the prestigious Stanford University Medical Center and UC San Diego Medical Center, completing 3 postgraduate surgical fellowships.
Additionally, Dr. Chaffoo is one of the few physicians certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, American Board of Otolaryngology, and American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. On top of that, his expertise in hair transplant surgery has made San Diego a destination for patients from throughout the world looking to reverse their hair loss.
Dr. Stuart’s career spans more than 20 years after 8 years of postgraduate training including a fellowship at Stanford University and dermatology residency at the prestigious Emory University School of Medicine. She also holds the rare distinction of being a Top Doctor by Castle Connolly and has held an academic position as a associate clinical professor of dermatology at UCSD School of Medicine. Her expertise in cosmetic dermatology includes being on the leading edge of laser dermatology and consistently offering patients groundbreaking anti-aging treatments.
“Uniting our practice — and offering a comprehensive website encompassing all of our specialties — reflects the sea change that’s occurred in the aesthetic field,” Dr. Chaffoo says. “That change continues to reshape the field with the introduction of new, non-invasive treatments and La Jolla Skin best serves patients seeking that wide variety of options.”
