What Is Plastic Surgery?

Plastic surgery is a specialty that requires several more years of residency for the medical professional to learn advanced techniques and gain an intimate knowledge of how muscle movement, tissue placement and bone structure can be changed to improve your overall appearance.

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Josh Waltzman could help reconstruct, restore, or alter areas of your body. Reconstructive surgery helps restore an area after an injury or medical treatment, and cosmetic surgery addresses cosmetic concerns and helps reshape structures to meet your goals.

How Can Plastic Surgery Help?

A variety of surgical techniques in Downey could be used to improve your appearance, whether they are performed alone or in combination. More men and women are seeking procedures to restore a youthful appearance with the growth of video conferencing and virtual meetings. Many experience improvement in their self-confidence, and some also report improvement in their work lives.

Facial Surgery

Time, age, gravity, sun exposure, and environmental toxins can take a significant toll on your skin’s tone and texture. The natural loss of elasticity increases the potential for deep lines and wrinkles around the mouth, neck, and jowls. Men and women who are seeking significant improvement may find a facelift is the best option to restore muscle and skin tone.

We also offer a brow lift, which could raise your eyebrows and give you a more rested, energetic appearance, or eyelid surgery to remove excess skin on upper eyelids or unwanted bags and puffiness under your lower eyelids

These and other plastic surgery procedures in Downey could help restore your facial features, tighten muscles, and improve skin tone when excess skin is removed. During surgery, small areas of fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise may also be removed. Each of these procedures results in a brighter and more youthful face.

Body Sculpting

You may be familiar with the mommy makeover, which is a common procedure women request after they have finished having children. This combination of surgical procedures helps restore the body to how it was before pregnancy.

One of the benefits of a mommy makeover is that it is done in a single operation, meaning you have one surgery at our onsite surgical facility and one recovery. The operation offers you the opportunity to restore and rejuvenate your body to the firmness you had before getting pregnant.

Other body contouring procedures help remove excess skin and small fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise after losing a significant amount of weight. These procedures could lift the skin and tighten muscles in the thighs, tummy, or body.


Breast procedures can help increase or decrease size, change your shape, or lift the breast tissue. Breast augmentation is a frequently performed cosmetic surgery that offers women a fuller and firmer breast line using implants. For women who want changes in size without implants, a fat transfer from another area of the body can be used, which offers a more natural enlargement.

Breast augmentation alone does not reposition the breast tissue. Age and skin laxity can cause the breast tissue to droop, so many women request a breast augmentation with a breast lift to restore a more youthful shape and reposition the breast tissue higher on the chest.

Women who have larger breasts may seek breast reduction surgery to address back pain, breathing problems, and poor posture. It creates a more natural and balanced silhouette while tightening the skin and placing the breast in the correct position.

Non-Surgical Procedures May Help Meet Your Goals

Plastic surgery in Downey can create a dramatic change in your appearance, but non-surgical procedures can also help you meet your goals while offering a more subtle result, typically with a shorter recovery time and lower cost.

Our aesthetic nurses offer a full range of services that can help you look and feel amazing. The non-surgical procedures listed here are only some of the techniques we offer.

Skin Treatment

A daily skincare routine helps maintain a clear complexion and protects your skin against damage from environmental toxins, but you occasionally may want a little more help. During your visit, you will undergo a thorough consultation and evaluation to determine the best products to use on your skin type and achieve your goals. We select only the best products and techniques to boost the effects of your diligent work at home.


Injectables are non-surgical and minimally invasive, and they can be used either to relax facial fine lines and wrinkles, or to improve the structure and framework of your face.

There are a variety of different products that can be injected under the skin to improve different areas of concern, including BOTOX®, a neuromodulator derived from botulinum toxin. After injection under the skin, the compound prevents contraction in the targeted muscles of your face, which helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Other types of injectables include dermal fillers , which typically improve the structure and framework of your cheeks, jawline, or lips. After a thorough evaluation and consultation, our patient care team will recommend the type that works best for you.

Renuvion Skin Tightening

As you age, your skin loses elasticity. After significant weight loss or liposuction, the volume of fat under the skin is reduced, which may leave you with sagging areas that are not visually appealing. Renuvion is the only FDA-approved device that works beneath the surface of the skin to help tighten these sagging areas and produce a more natural result after liposuction.


Liposuction has traditionally been used to remove stubborn pockets of fat. CoolSculpting is a non-invasive option that uses a device to target an area and freeze fat cells, which are then naturally eliminated from the area by your body.

CoolSculpting can be administered along the jawline, flanks, thighs, back, abdomen and upper arms.  Mostpeople see a reduction of fat in the area by up to 25% but may need two or more sessions to reach their goal.
