Aesthetic Surgeries

THE DECISION

Cosmetic surgery may be the best option for many patients. Surgery can enhance your appearance by improving aesthetic appeal, symmetry and proportion that may not be able to be achieved through non-surgical procedures.

Since the face and body are functioning properly, these procedures are considered elective and are not covered by your Kaiser Permanente health plan. The surgeons of The Aesthetic Center by Kaiser Permanente offer cosmetic surgery for the face, neck and other parts of the body.

The following is a list of procedures that we offer. Click on the procedure for more details, including steps necessary to prepare for the surgery and what to expect in the recovery phase.

There is a fee for the initial consultation which will be applied to your aesthetic surgery.

Our cosmetic plastic surgeons welcome everyone.

You do not need to be a Kaiser Permanente Health Plan member.
