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!

Dr. Koplin Introduces Himself

Dr. Koplin introduces himself and talks about his philosophy on and experience with working in plastic surgery. Full transcript below.


Hello, I’m Dr. Lawrence Koplin. I’m a board certified plastic surgeon practicing in the city of Beverly Hills, California. I want to tell you a little bit about why I love plastic surgery, why it’s fun for me, why it’s challenging, and why I enjoy going to work every day. I’ll begin by telling you that it’s a family affair, it’s a teamwork, and I’m lucky enough to have a wonderful office of personnel who really understand plastic surgery, who understand what it’s like to be a patient in a plastic surgery setting, and who are one hundred percent there from beginning to end to make it a wonderful and exciting journey. I’m double board certified actually. I did my training in general surgery, and then I went on to become fully board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Plastic and reconstructive surgery means making people better than they are or trying to restore them to the way that they were before they became injured. That’s an interesting process and it’s a difficult one psychologically and it’s a scary process sometimes. So we know that, and we’re really committed to becoming part of the process, becoming part of your family, having you join us in the journey. I tell people that it’s going to be scary at the very beginning; it’s kind of like the first day of school or going to camp. I’m not going to know anyone, nobody’s going to like me, I won’t sleep very well, and I’m going to have a terrible time. But actually you find out it’s kind of fun; it’s kind of exciting, you join this wonderful group of people that you like and who like you. And then when it’s finished and we don’t really need to see you anymore, I tell people it’s kind of like you’re in the back of the bus that’s leaving camp, the counselors are getting smaller, the lake’s getting smaller, the trees are getting farther away, you’re kind of waving. But, we’re still there waving and watch you, and I hope that that experience will be part of the experience that you will enjoy if you come to see us. I hope that by having talked about this I might have made finding a plastic surgeon a little bit easier. It’s my pleasure meeting you. I’m Dr. Lawrence Koplin, and thanks for listening.
