New Year, New You!

2013 has been a busy year and we are looking forward to seeing you in 2014!

As we say goodbye to the current year, I wanted to thank my loyal patients for your support and wish you all a wonderful 2014. Our office building has seen a major construction project this past year (still unfinished), and we used the opportunity to perform a complete remodel of our office. If you are in the neighborhood, please stop in for a cup of freshly brewed coffee and take a quick tour of our gorgeous new facility!

What else happened in 2013?

Everything! We moved a step closer to the Holy Grail of plastic surgery.

This year saw the development of what may be the single most revolutionary procedure for rejuvenating aging skin and soft tissue. Not by pulling, freezing, burning or lasering, but truly repairing and restoring damaged skin. We call it Nano Stem Serum, and this is how it works:

I remain a leading edge surgeon and advocate for Natural Fat Transfer, where we use natural adipose (fat) tissue to fill lines and soften the thinning face as it ages. For reference, you can hear me talk about this in multiple short videos on my website. We now take the remaining, purified fat and gently process it to extract stem cells from the tissue and concentrate them into a smooth liquid. This serum is thin enough to be injected directly into damaged skin.

We can now make skin more healthy by placing growth factors and reparative stem cells exactly where we want them - in the skin! Injected into crows’ feet, upper lips lines and crepey skin, we see thickening and a smoother appearance. In the décolletage, we see softening and disappearance of wrinkles. We are also studying the effect of placing Nano Stem Serum into the lower eyelid skin for improvement of dark circles and skin discoloration.

Please feel free to call our office for any additional information we might be able to provide, and wishing you all a very happy and healthy New Year!

Plastic Surgeon
Just became easier.


Consult Dr. Koplin from Anywhere in the World

Dr. Koplin treats patients from all over the globe. If you live outside the Los Angeles area, and would like to consult with Dr. Koplin, you may want to consider a video consultation. This new technology makes it easy to see and talk to the doctor, long-distance and from the comfort and privacy of your home.

What to Expect from Your Video Consultation

We want to make sure you get the most out of your consultation with Dr. Koplin, so we’ll have you complete a pre-consultation interview with Cica Huston-Fleiner, She’ll talk to you about your issues, questions, and desired outcomes for plastic surgery. Dr. Koplin will have reviewed all of your information before you and he speak face-to-face during your video consultation.

During your time with Dr. Koplin, he will explain the procedures you’re considering and answer any questions you may have. He'll also provide advice as what he thinks the best solutions are for you, given your preliminary video consultation. As a video consult does not offer all of the advantages of a face-to-face consultation, the doctor’s recommendation may change upon actual physical examination.


Video consultations are available for a fee. Please contact our office for pricing. This includes the pre-consultation interview, Dr. Koplin’s time before and during your video consultation, and his expert opinion. Please note that the video consultation is only an opinion, and that Dr. Koplin is licensed in the state of California and may not be licensed in your area.
