San Diego Facial Plastic Surgery

Your face is the one part of your body you can't hide with clothes, and it's the main part of your body people focus on in your personal and professional life. What does your face say about you? Many people choose San Diego facial plastic surgery from Dr. Richard Chaffoo to create a facial contour that matches the youth and vitality they feel inside.

As you age, the combination of time, gravity and sunny days that makes life here in San Diego so agreeable can result in thinning skin, a furrowed brow, sagging eyelids, and puffiness and wrinkling. Even if you take great care of your skin on a regular basis, eventually you will likely need some help taking care of those "trouble spots" that nag at you every time you look in the mirror. Dr. Richard Chaffoo is a highly experienced and trained plastic surgeon who specializes in facial plastic surgery procedures. In fact, he's widely considered a "go to" doctor for the toughest cosmetic and reconstructive cases.

Dr. Chaffoo

Triple board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Chaffoo provides exceptional results and patient care.

Nose Surgery

Realize the ultimate in form and function with a more aesthetically pleasing nose shape or size with one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures in San Diego — rhinoplasty. And, learn more about how a "nose job" can correct an imperfection resulting from either injury, genetics or prior nasal surgery.

Face Lift

Discover how today's modern face lift — also known as rhytidectomy — can reverse the effects of time, gravity, stress, genetics and UV light, while restoring a more youthful look with less lines and sagging.

NECK LIFT

The silicone exterior of your implants may be smooth or textured. Textured shells tend to hold implants in place because they adhere to the breast tissue like Velcro®, making them preferable for implants placed above the muscle to minimize the risk of capsular contracture. On the other hand, the shell of textured implants may be slightly thicker than smooth implants, which can make it more difficult to camouflage the edge of the implants. Dr. Chaffoo thoroughly explains the benefits of each option.

Brow Lift

An implant's profile and size should be considered together. When we talk about the profile of an implant, we're discussing its width and how much it projects from the chest. Wider implants have lower profiles (meaning they will be less noticeable when seen from the side.) Each implant size comes with different profiles, typically categorized as low, moderate, moderate plus, and high.

Eyelid Surgery

Rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes, while maybe even improving your eyesight. If you're living with sagging eyelids, puffy bags and fine lines, learn how blepharoplasty can give you bigger, more energetic looking eyes and smoother, more youthful looking skin.

Fat Transfer

Imagine reducing fat in an area of the body where it's unwanted and transferring it to your face to create a more youthful appearance. Too good to be true? No, thanks to the fat transfer technique used by Dr. Chaffoo and Dr. Stuart. Fat cells harvested using a minor liposuction procedure can be used to restore facial volume as a longer-lasting alternative to synthetic fillers.

Infant Ear Correction

Studies show that 70% of infant ear deformities do not resolve on their own. Fortunately, the EarWell™ Infant Ear Correction System can help. This non-surgical, pain-free technique reshapes a baby's ears using soft ear cradles. Covered by most insurance, EarWell may take the place of corrective ear surgery. To learn more, request a complimentary consultation with Dr. Chaffoo or call (858) 997-0096 for an appointment.
