Alexander Cosmetic Surgery, we have a simple philosophy—keep things simple! The ability to keep things simple requires both experience and common sense. Keeping things simple has helped us:
- make procedures easily understandable to patients
- create simplified surgical steps that consistently produce natural results, time after time
- avoid problems and complications
- keep our patients happy
We have found that most patients are happy with themselves in general, and happy with the way they look. Our patients are not looking for radical change, just an improvement, rejuvenation, or refinement of what they already have. Combining tried and true procedures with good measures of common sense and practicality helps us do just that.
Located in La Jolla
Alexander Cosmetic Surgery has been in the same convenient location for 24 years. Located in the Golden Triangle near University Towne Center, our office is right between the I-5 and the I-805, near Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla.
Our Surgical Office and Medical Spa are beautifully decorated with antiques, unique artifacts, and original artwork. We offer two reception areas, one for new patients and another private area for post-operative patients. Our consult room is inviting and large enough to comfortably visit with prospective patients and their families. We use a unique touch-screen system to assist with our consults, perform computer imaging, and view representative Before and After photographs.
Our 3-Suite Surgical Center is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgical Facilities (AAAASF), an intensive review process, assuring our patients the highest level of safety possible, and allowing us to provide all levels of anesthesia, from local to general. Surgical facilities that offer only "local anesthesia" are rarely, if ever, certified.
