San Diego Readers Name La Jolla Plastic Surgery & Dermatology One of Top Cosmetic Practices

Readers of the La Jolla Light and San Diego Union-Tribune vote for the cosmetic plastic surgery practice and medical spa as among the best in San Diego County.

La Jolla, California (September 2016) — La Jolla Plastic Surgery & Dermatology earned honors in the annual readers' polls published by the La Jolla Light and San Diego Union-Tribune, including best cosmetic plastic surgery group, best cosmetic surgeon, best medical spa, and best cosmetic dermatologist.

"Our practice prides itself on offering the highest quality care and personalized service for our patients in this community," says Dr. Richard A. Chaffoo, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon. "We truly appreciate that local readers recognized our team's commitment to providing excellent cosmetic surgery, cosmetic dermatology, and medical spa services."

La Jolla Plastic Surgery & Dermatology combines the talents of Dr. Chaffoo and board-certified dermatologist Dr. Susan Stuart, giving patients the opportunity to get all of their aesthetic and skin care needs met under one roof. It is one of the few plastic surgery and dermatology practices in the nation with a husband and wife team, creating a team that sets them apart.

The Union-Tribune's "Best of" readers' poll, in its 20th year, named La Jolla Plastic Surgery & Dermatology in both the Cosmetic Surgery Group and Medical Spa categories. Additionally, Dr. Chaffoo was recognized in the Best Cosmetic Surgeon category. Dr. Stuart was named a top dermatologist in the La Jolla Light survey.

"These polls are meaningful because they reflect the experiences of our actual patients," Dr. Stuart says. "Part of that experience is the innovations we offer, such as advanced laser treatments and fat reduction through CoolSculpting®, which allow us to give San Diego residents more options for producing the results they want."

The pair at La Jolla Plastic Surgery & Dermatology have gained national recognition for their expertise, as well. Castle Connolly, the firm behind the annual America's Top Doctors® book series, has named Dr. Chaffoo on its list for 5 consecutive years. The plastic surgeon is one of the few physicians certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery, the American Board of Otolaryngology, and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

In addition, Expertise.com recently named La Jolla Plastic Surgery & Dermatology as one of San Diego's Top 20 practices out of 286 evaluated, based in part on Dr. Stuart's reputation, experience, and professionalism. Her postgraduate training includes a Stanford University fellowship, and she has also been named a Top Doctor by Castle Connolly. Dr. Stuart is an associate clinical professor of dermatology at the UC San Diego School of Medicine.

"We look forward to continuing to provide San Diego County residents with comprehensive cosmetic enhancement services at La Jolla Plastic Surgery & Dermatology," Dr. Chaffoo says. "We're honored by the trust the community has in our entire team, and it inspires us to continue to produce consistently excellent results."
