About

Bio

I have been a practicing plastic surgeon Certified by the Am. Bd. of Plastic Surgery for over 25 years. I am a Clinical Assoc. Professor of Plastic Surgery at the UCLA Geffen Medical Center and performed forty Extreme Makeover surgeries for the ABC TV Series Extreme Makeover. I am personally very family oriented and have two children. Weekends I'm often outdoors riding bikes or hiking. My practice specialties are focused on cosmetic and aesthetic plastic surgery although I began as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon performing burn care and caring for injury patients. I have expertise in facial rejuvenation, fat grafting, rhinoplasty, brow lifts, face lifts, breast enlargement, breast augmentation, breast uplifts, breast implants, tummy tuck, liposuction and wrinkle treatments using fillers, botulinum and chemical and laser peels. You will find that my practice is very personal and far from a "factory" environment when you visit us for consultation here in Beverly Hills. Many of our patients travel for consultation and to undergo surgery and we help to make arrangement for your stay and if necessary your aftercare. Please visit my web site for more information www.perlmanmd.com
