Plastic Surgery in Cerritos

Aging is a natural part of life, but when you feel younger than you look, plastic surgery and non-surgical techniques could restore a youthful and vibrant appearance.

There are a variety of ways an experienced plastic surgeon at The Waltzman Institute could address your cosmetic concerns and help you achieve your aesthetic goals through face, body, and breast surgery or noninvasive procedures. To fully understand how surgical and non-surgical techniques can help you, call our office today and schedule an appointment to discuss plastic surgery in Cerritos.

What Is Plastic Surgery?

Plastic surgery is a specialty in which board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Josh Waltzman could help restore, reconstruct, or alter areas of your body. There are two main types of plastic surgery. Reconstructive surgery helps restore form and function after an injury or treatment for another medical condition, and cosmetic surgery addresses concerns about your appearance and could help reshape your body to be more aesthetically pleasing.

How Can Plastic Surgery Help?

Our practice offers a variety of techniques at our onsite surgical center to help improve your appearance and boost your self-esteem. With the increasing use of social media and virtual meetings, more men and women are requesting procedures that can help them appear more youthful, which many believe has improved their professional lives.


The Waltzman Institute offers a variety of facial procedures that can help restore the damage that gravity, sun exposure, and the stresses of daily life have taken on your face. When you want the creases alongside your mouth and jaw removed, as well as folds in your neck, a facelift may be the best choice for you.

Other face procedures that may help reshape and balance your face and boost self-confidence include a brow lift, eyelid surgery, cheek implants, or ear surgery. Each of these plastic surgery procedures in Cerritos could offer restoration of skin tissue that has lost elasticity or facial structures that are sagging with age. They can also help remove small fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise. Each procedure could result in a brighter and more youthful appearance.


One of our most popular body procedures is the mommy makeover, which is a combination of surgical procedures that help restore a woman’s body after changes that occur during pregnancy. In a single operation, Dr. Waltzman could help restore and rejuvenate your breasts and tummy to the firmness you enjoyed before getting pregnant.

After meeting their weight loss goals, many individuals seek out body contouring procedures that remove excess skin and small fat deposits resistant to diet and exercise. These Cerritos plastic surgery procedures can include a thigh lift, tummy tuck, or body lift.


Breast procedures may be one of our most frequently performed cosmetic surgeries. Breast augmentation can give women a fuller and firmer look using implants, while a smaller size change can be made with fat transfers from another area of your body.

Breast augmentation can be used to correct unevenly sized breasts or to enlarge a smaller size, but it does not address excess skin laxity that can occur causing the breast tissue to droop. In this case, a breast lift procedure may help return a youthful shape and lift after you have lost volume from the natural effects of gravity, pregnancy, or weight loss.

Women with larger breasts may seek a breast reduction to help reduce symptoms and discomfort, including back pain, poor posture, and breathing problems. Breast reduction surgery can create a more natural silhouette while tightening the skin and lifting the breast tissue into the correct position.

Non-Surgical Procedures Could Help You Meet Your Goals

While various non-surgical procedures may not offer the same level of dramatic change as a surgical procedure in Cerritos, they also have less recovery time and are less expensive.

Non-surgical procedures are part of the full range of services we offer that could help you look and feel amazing. The following are only a few examples of our offerings.

Boost Your Skincare Routine

You may already have a home skincare routine to help keep a clear complexion and remove environmental toxins that can damage your skin cells, but occasionally you may want a little more help to rejuvenate your skin. After a thorough evaluation and consultation, only the best products and techniques will be selected to help boost the effects of your daily routine.


Injectables are treatments used to either relax facial wrinkles or to create structure and framework in your face and lips. A variety of injectable procedures can be used to improve different areas of concern, including BOTOX®, which is a medication derived from botulinum toxin that relaxes the muscles in your face and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Other types of injectables, such as dermal fillers are also available. Our patient care team will recommend the injectable that will best meet your goals.

Renuvion Skin Tightening

Liposuction removes stubborn fat, but it does not address the loose skin that can be left behind. Renuvion is the only FDA-approved device that can be used after liposuction to help tighten skin.

With age or weight loss, the skin can lose elasticity, and with a decreased volume of fat after liposuction, you may be left with sagging areas of skin. Renuvion works beneath the surface of the skin to help tighten the area and produce a natural-looking result.


CoolSculpting is a non-invasive way of removing stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to your hard work with diet and exercise. CoolSculpting uses a device that targets the area you want treated by freezing fat cells. Your body then naturally eliminates the dead fat cells, which could result in up to a 25% reduction of fat in the area.

CoolSculpting can be used under the jaw, along the flanks, on the thighs, upper arm, and back. The average treatment session can last up to three hours, depending on the area being treated. Most people need two or more sessions to reach their goals.
