Mountain View and San Jose cosmetic surgery patients seek Dr. Pearl's expertise in a range of breast enhancement, body contouring and facial rejuvenation procedures. He provides breast surgery, including breast augmentation, breast reduction and mastopexy (breast lift), to address the shape, size and positioning of the breasts. Dr. Pearl has developed a reputation in recent years as the go-to plastic surgeon for male breast reduction (gynecomastia treatment), using a combination of VASER-assisted ultrasound liposuction and excision of breast tissue to produce outstanding results. He offers body sculpting surgery, including tummy tuck and body lift procedures, to eliminate excess skin, as well as VASER-assisted and S.A.F.E. liposuction to remove stubborn deposits of localized fat from almost any area of the body. He is also a talented facial rejuvenation surgeon performing facelift, eyelid surgery and brow lift to improve visible signs of facial aging, and rhinoplasty and chin augmentation to bring a sense of balance to facial features. Dr. Pearl is well known for producing long-lasting, natural-looking results by utilizing a deep-plane facelift technique; he has been using this technique for more than 15 years.

For individuals who are not yet ready to pursue cosmetic surgery or who would like to enhance their cosmetic surgery results, Pearl Plastic Surgery Center also offers a host of nonsurgical treatment options. These include BOTOX cosmetic treatment to smooth out wrinkles, as well as Juvéderm, Restylane and Radiesse dermal fillers to restore softness to certain areas of the face. Dr. Pearl provides a variety of cosmetic laser treatment options designed to give patients healthy, younger-looking skin.

Another of Dr. Pearl's specialties is restoring volume to the aging face. Volume restoration is ideally accomplished with structural fat grafting, a surgical procedure that is usually performed under local anesthesia with IV sedation. During fat grafting, Dr. Pearl uses liposuction to remove fat from one area of the body, purifies it and then re-injects it into another area of the body to provide enhancement. To achieve excellent facial volume restoration results without the use of surgery, Dr. Pearl uses Sculptra and the new Voluma from Allergan.

Finally, Carol MacDonald, the fabulous aesthetician at Pearl Plastic Surgery, provides outstanding skin care services. She can customize a skin care treatment regimen to help patients with various skin types achieve or maintain glowing skin.
