FAQ’s With Dr. Bresnick

I like making patients happy. Plastic surgery allows us to help make changes that we can see, and patients appreciate. When we make our patients’ lives better, we achieve success.

 I personally call each patient the night of surgery to see how they are doing. I do everything I can to control discomfort, including the use of long-lasting local anesthetic and pain reduction pumps.  Most of our patients feel that the recovery was much easier than they expected.

I like to listen to my patients. We begin the consultation by exploring what changes they are hoping to make, and we discuss various ways these changes can be achieved. After reviewing the medical history and examining a patient, I offer a customized plan which offers maximal improvement.

Our center is a fully accredited, state-of-the art plastic surgery center.  Our spacious office and surgery center is located in the lobby level of the Encino Executive Tower in Los Angeles, CA. 

Caring, highly qualified, and exceptional.
