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!

What's New in Plastic Surgery?

Dr. Koplin explains that what’s most important and new in plastic surgery today is the concept, which in recent years has been reoriented toward favoring a more natural, soft and youthful look. Full transcript below.


People are often asking me what’s new in plastic surgery. What’s the newest technique; what’s the newest laser; what’s the newest item? And actually, what is really new in plastic surgery is the concept, and the concept is natural: natural results, natural appearance. And, what do I really mean by that? Well, we’re here in Beverly Hills in Los Angeles. Trust me, the best and the worst plastic surgery in the world is here. The bad stuff you can see across the room. You don’t have to be a plastic surgeon. It’s not good. The good results are the ones that you really don’t even notice. It’s like a good haircut or good makeup. It’s sexy, it’s natural, it’s unassuming. So, the big concept isn’t the machine that we use, the laser that we use, because those always pass. There’s always something new around the frontier. But what’s really new is: don’t make someone look crazy; don’t make them look artificial. Make them look natural, the way that they used to look, or enhance the way that they used to look in a way that’s unassuming, beautiful, and sexy. I’m Dr. Lawrence Koplin, and thank you for listening.
