At our Santa Barbara cosmetic surgery practice, each patient is treated as an individual and no two surgeries are exactly the same. Dr. Perkins works with a patient’s facial foundation so the end result is a more youthful and rested version of themself.

Some of our patients who are good candidates for minimally-invasive (MI) cosmetic surgeries that have less downtime, less cost and give noticeable improvement. This is ideal for those who are experiencing early changes and would like to delay a larger surgery or for those who want to “maintain” the benefit of a previous surgery.
