Dr. Christine Petti, MD, FACS

Accepting patients

    Overview

    As a female plastic surgeon, I have dedicated my medical career to helping patients achieve their cosmetic goals with little risk and excellent results. My passion is to help patients attain and even restore confidence in the way they view themselves, be it through breast enhancement, body contouring, facial rejuvenation, or even non-surgical rejuvenation techniques. Furthermore, my practice houses a comprehensive medical spa where my team of experienced skin care specialists and I employ an extensive array of skin care products and treatments designed to complement and enhance cosmetic results, as well as rejuvenate skin without the need for surgery. I am certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an active member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and the American Society for Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). I am a member in the Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a medical expert for The Medical Board of California. I have published numerous scientific manuscripts on laser body contouring, laser liposuction and laser cellulite treatment. I am also the Medical Director of Palos Verdes Plastic Surgery Medical Center and Spa Bella, Medical Day Spa, located in the South Bay area of Los Angeles, California. Additionally, I have been featured as an expert on the Discovery Health Channel and a variety of popular television programs, including The Doctors, 20/20, and Inside Edition.
