If the eyes are the windows to the soul, the face is a reflection of your spirit. Your smile may light up a room, and you may feel youthful and energized, but years, environment, and life's little stresses can exact a toll on your face. At SK Clinic, home of San Diego facial plastic surgery experts, we perform a natural-looking facelift, endoscopic brow lift, laser resurfacing, and more. It is our goal to help many people rediscover that reflection of their spirit. When we perform procedures on the face, our goal is to achieve a natural, radiant outcome - a result that improves your face, your spirit, your being. There are numerous options for improvement available to you at SK Clinic through facial plastic surgery La Jolla, including endoscopic brow lift, facelift, malar lift, and facial contouring. There are numerous advances that have made facial cosmetic surgery procedures less intrusive, more precise, and exceedingly subtle. With facial plastic surgery in San Diego, experienced local professionals are able to help you decide precisely which procedure is necessary.
Gravity is no friend to the face. As you age, your skin loses its firmness, elasticity, and its ability to resist gravity. As a result, jowls and slackness in the skin between the chin and the neck develop. At SK Clinic, located north of San Diego in La Jolla, the facelift is designed to restore the youthful contour of your face. Discrete incisions are made within the ear crease and into the hairline. The hairline is completely restored without telltale scars. Fat is sculpted and excess fat and skin are removed, while deeper tissues such as muscles and fascia are tightened. This manipulation of the deeper tissues creates more lasting results that are not dependent on the skin alone. The result is more pronounced cheekbones, a smoother jawline, and a more youthful appearance. For more information about our La Jolla, San Diego area clinic and to schedule a consultation for a facelift, contact our associates today.
Thermage is the only non-invasive procedure that helps tighten and contour your skin in a single treatment with no surgery, no injections, and little to no downtime. Instead, Thermage stimulates your body's natural renewal of collagen, which creates subtle, natural looking results on and off the face, like Tighter, smoother skin Softened wrinkles and lines and an overall younger looking appearance.
The Mid Facelift (Malar Lift)
SK Clinic in La Jolla is one of the nation's leading proponents of the mid facelift. We have performed hundreds of these with remarkably natural results. The mid facelift is becoming a popular alternative to the traditional facelift. The mid face, or malar lift is performed by making an incision only in the lower eyelid. Through this small, inconspicuous approach (exactly where your eyeliner is applied), the entire mid face is lifted and stabilized in a more vertical, slightly oblique direction. As Dr. Krant emphasizes, "If things go north and south, don't pull them east and west." As performed at SK Clinic in La Jolla, mid facelift involves making the cheekbones more prominent while lessening that ever-deepening crease that runs from the nose to the outer edges of the mouth. The jowl (or nasolabial crease) is tightened and the result is a natural, youthful look that will melt away the years.
The Endoscopic Brow Lift
The brow or forehead can be your facial barometer. Stress and fatigue take up residence for all to see in the form of furrows, creases, sagging eyelids, and the dreaded frown line. At SK Clinic in the San Diego area, the endoscopic brow lift is a safe, precise, and patient-friendly procedure for dealing with the brow that can effectively erase these facial furrows. As performed at SK Clinic in San Diego, the endoscopic brow lift is a minimally invasive procedure, performed through a series of vertical incisions made just behind the hairline. During an endoscopic brow lift the forehead skin is not lifted, nor is any skin or hair removed. Using an endoscope, the forehead skin is released, the frown lines and muscles are lessened, and the eyebrows are stabilized in a more natural and youthful position. The result is a smooth brow that shows little signs of age, stress or fatigue, but without the look of "surprise" that can often be equated with such a procedure.
Facial Contouring (Rhinoplasty & More)
The true art of what we do at SK Clinic in La Jolla, San Diego is evident in the variety of facial contouring procedures we perform. If you aspire to a reshaped nose, cheeks, or chin, contouring is an effective technique to achieve the look you want. In the case of nose reshaping, also called rhinoplasty, the result can be both cosmetic and functional, as your breathing can be effectively improved. Through inconspicuous incisions made inside the nostril and on the columella, we are able to reshape the nasal structure, either by sculpting bone and/or cartilage, or by adding cartilage as needed. The septum may also be straightened to enhance the airway and improve breathing. The result is a nose that is contoured to your desires, whether to remove a hump or wide bridge, to minimize nostrils, to trim the width of the nose tip, or to give the tip more definition. Simply sculpting the tip of the nose can greatly enhance your overall appearance. Whatever the desired outcome, a naturally reshaped nose can bring life and vibrancy to any face, often with the added functional benefit of improved breathing.
Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift, is one of the most popular procedures performed by plastic surgeons today. It can dramatically rejuvenate your countenance by removing excess skin around the eyes that causes a "tired" look. Blepharoplasty incisions are placed where the natural creases of the eyelid occur, both in the upper and lower eyelid area. Our surgeons will carefully evaluate your needs to determine the best approach. Excess fat and skin are removed to smooth out the eyelid area and create the rested, youthful look you desire.
If you feel your chin is too small, receding, or disproportionate to your face, thereby overemphasizing your nose and diminishing the "strength" of your appearance, you may want to consider chin augmentation. At SK Clinic in La Jolla, this procedure can perfect the contour of the face by augmenting the chin profile to a "normal," more pleasing position. We will insert an anatomic implant that will bring your chin to a more normal position and proportion. This procedure is performed through an inconspicuous incision inside the mouth through which the chin implant is placed. Similarly, for cheek enhancement, the implant is placed through an upper gumline incision. There are no external scars and your facial proportion is more balanced and normal. The results are dramatic and natural-looking whether done alone or with a face or neck lift.
We all have a vision of the perfect body. And more often than not, the body we see in the mirror is not it. Look closely and chances are, with a little tummy tuck here, possibly a lift there, you will see yourself being transformed into the perfect you. At SK Clinic, located in La Jolla, we specialize in San Diego body contouring and perform thousands of procedures including liposuction, tummy tuck, breast reduction, breast lift, and more, which have transformed bodies and lives. From plastic and reconstructive surgery procedures to La Jolla body contouring, liposuction, and tummy tucks, Dr. Stephen Krant is pleased to give people a renewed sense of self by offering body contouring in San Diego. Many proclaim that their lives have been dramatically changed following a San Diego body contouring procedure.
Long hailed as a technique to exclusively remove unwanted fat, liposuction, also known as liposculpture, has evolved into an art form to help people make changes from significant to subtle in their bodies' appearance. As performed at our San Diego area clinic in La Jolla, liposuction is an effective way to remove unwanted body fat from most areas where excess fat has accumulated. With very small incisions the fatty tissue is removed and resculpted, leaving a pleasing natural contour. Genetics play a major role in how certain parts of your body may look. It is common to hear people say they have their mother's legs, abdomen, thighs, or arms to explain an area of their body they'd rather not draw attention to. With liposuction, the marks of heredity can be readily reshaped. Commonly targeted areas at our San Diego area clinic with liposuction are the hips, buttocks, abdomen, thighs, back/bra-line, arms, knees, and calves. The female breast can also be sculpted via this technique. Men, too may have excess breast tissue (gynecomastia) that creates a chest contour that is too full. This can make them extremely self-conscious deterring them from being shirtless at the beach, in the locker room, or even at home. The male breast area can be sculpted with tiny incisions, relieving what many men consider a deformity.
The Brazilian Butt-Lift is an effective and aesthetic form of butt augmentation surgery which results in a youthful, prominent, perky buttocks and a more sensual body profile. People of all ages are having the butt lift procedure. The buttock is first contoured by performing precise liposculpture in the areas around the buttocks to make them stand out. Common areas liposuctioned include the back- directly above the butt, the stomach, and the thighs. Oftentimes, the liposuction alone will improve your profile and maximize the contour and figure. The fat suctioned from these areas is then carefully processed and purified such that only a fraction of the donor fat removed will qualify for re-injection to the buttocks. The fat is placed or transferred to the buttocks with special cannulas. This procedure typically involves 'hundreds' of micro fat injections and with proper fat harvesting, processing, and injection, the result should be long lasting. The Result of the Brazilian Butt-Lift is a more sensuous, youthful, perky buttock and profile which puts the entire body's figure into aesthetic balance.
Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty)
If you desire a flatter, tighter stomach, you may be a candidate for tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) at our San Diego area clinic. As performed at SK Clinic in La Jolla, tummy tuck goes beyond traditional liposuction and is especially effective in patients who not only have fat stores in the abdomen, but loose abdominal muscles from significant weight loss, pregnancy, or C-section. Tummy tuck involves elevating the skin off the abdominal wall, tightening muscles, excising excess skin, and redraping it to create a smooth, even appearance. Not only will your abdominal area look fantastic, but it will feel great too. In many cases at our San Diego area clinic in La Jolla, tummy tuck can eliminate lower back discomfort, which is an exceptional benefit of this procedure. The result is a flat, tight, and flattering abdomen!
Some patients desire a change, not only in their stomach, but also in the entire midsection. These patients may have recently lost a great deal of weight, but still display excess skin and fat around the midsection. Or they may have both a paunch and the hated love handles with loose, hanging skin above their buttocks. A belt lipectomy is a procedure that can be done separately or in conjunction with a tummy tuck at our San Diego clinic. The entire anterior and posterior midsection is tightened and reshaped through the removal of excess skin and fat. The dramatic result is firmer skin, a flatter belly, a more defined waist, lifted outer thighs, and higher buttocks. They all can be yours. For more information about body contouring, tummy tuck, and more at our San Diego area clinic in La Jolla, contact SK Clinic today.
The word "plastic" in the term "plastic surgery" comes from the Greek word "plastikos" which means to mold or reshape. Like the hands of a sculptor, the hands of a skilled surgeon can mold and shape your body in many exciting ways to reveal a "you" that you may never have thought possible. Procedures offered at our San Diego breast surgery clinic in La Jolla range from breast augmentation to breast reduction and breast lift. As with all of our plastic surgery procedures, breast augmentation surgery is FDA approved and has become increasingly safe within the last decade. Dr. Krant's abilities are surpassed by none, as they have taken what was once primarily science and transformed it into a safe, effective art. But perhaps the most important aspect of our San Diego breast surgery is dialogue. Dr. Krant, a La Jolla breast surgeon, firmly believes that thorough communication is the cornerstone of successful surgery. Our La Jolla breast surgery experts will spend as much time consulting with you as you require to determine your true needs and desires, and will then customize the appropriate procedures to fulfill your aims. Our San Diego breast surgery procedures include breast augmentation, breast implants, breast reduction and more.
At SK Clinic in La Jolla, we understand the decision to have breast augmentation is a very personal one that can have a truly positive impact on your confidence, self-image, and feeling of attractiveness. Many of our patients have declared that breast augmentation performed at our San Diego area surgical center has truly changed their lives by increasing confidence and zest for life. You may be unhappy with your breasts because they never grew as fully as you desired, or one grew disproportionate to the other. Or, often, after weight loss, or childbirth and breast-feeding, the breasts can lose volume and shape. As performed at SK Clinic in La Jolla, outside San Diego, breast augmentation adds volume to the breast mound for a natural, fuller, more youthful shape. Breast augmentation may be performed alone if only volume is desired. However, breast augmentation may also be performed in combination with a breast lift for maximum benefit, correcting both volume and shape. With minimal incisions made inconspicuously at the lower portion of the areola (the pigmented portion of the nipple), the implant is placed either under the breast tissue or the breast muscles. There are many types of safe, FDA approved breast implants available including those containing silicone gel or those filled with saline. Breast augmentation at our San Diego area clinic, is a procedure that has advanced in popularity, safety, and overall patient satisfaction over the past decade. You will love the results because this is an individualized procedure that specifically addresses your personal desires.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
If you are generally pleased with the size of your breasts, but feel that they sag or have lost firmness, you may consider breast lift, or mastopexy, at our San Diego area clinic. The size and shape of your breast will help us to determine the best approach to your procedure. With a mastopexy, excess skin is principally removed, but in many cases, the underlying breast tissue is sculpted and repositioned to reveal a well-contoured, firmer look. The nipple-areola complex is then elevated to an ideal position while remaining attached to its nerve endings and blood supply. This ensures that the nipple will retain its sensation. Often, a breast lift is done along with breast augmentation at our San Diego area center. And the choice is up to you and your physician to determine whether the implant is placed above or below the muscle, determined by the existing shape and size of the breast tissue. As with all of our services, this procedure will be customized to meet your needs and desires.
At SK Clinic of La Jolla, breast reduction can have significant benefits that are both physical and psychological. It can also give you breasts that are more proportionate to your body and more flattering beneath your clothing. The sheer weight of oversized breasts can cause lower back pain during normal activities, resulting in undue stress and fatigue. Neck and upper back discomfort can also be present and exercise can be difficult and painful. As with breast augmentation, the size and shape of your breasts, as well as your intended result, are customized to meet your needs for breast reduction. Typically, at our La Jolla clinic, each breast reduction includes removal of excess tissue, fat and skin. The nipple-areola complex, if pointed downward or stretched, may be reshaped and repositioned to appear more natural. When the nipple and areola are repositioned, they always remain attached to the underlying blood and nerve supply to ensure sensitivity is retained. We can also reshape the areola into a smaller more desirable circle. The satisfaction level among patients at our La Jolla surgical center who have chosen breast reduction is among the highest of all procedures. Not only will you look great, but you will also feel great.
It is our sincere pleasure to have helped hundreds of patients at our reconstructive plastic surgery clinic in La Jolla, who have had mastectomies, rediscover their inner and outer beauty through breast reconstruction. Of all the things we do here at SK Clinic in La Jolla, near San Diego, there is a true sense that we are contributing in a very real way to the renewal of the total person. We help them overcome both a physical and emotional loss and have a sense of being "'whole" again.
At SK Clinic of La Jolla, outside of San Diego, we use four specific approaches to breast reconstruction, the results of which can be remarkable. Each procedure is discussed thoroughly with you and then the procedure is completely individualized to meet your needs and desires. All procedures are performed at the hospital by Dr. Krant. The first option at SK Clinic of La Jolla for breast reconstruction involves a prosthetic expander, which is inserted under the skin and chest muscles. This can be done at the time of the mastectomy or any time thereafter. Over a period of months, saline solution is easily injected into the expander and the overlying skin and muscles stretches and adapts. With this approach, the patient can help decide what final size she wants. Once the tissue is fully stretched and expanded to the desired size, the expander is removed and a permanent saline or gel implant is placed within the space that was expanded. The result is natural appearing breasts that are symmetrical and compatible. The second breast reconstruction option is the latissimus dorsi flap. In this alternative reconstructive procedure, we move both skin and muscle from the back and transfer it to the front of the chest to recreate tissue that was lost. The bra line discretely masks the scar line created on the back. This procedure is particularly favored in cases where a mastectomy or radiation treatment has left insufficient tissue in the breast area. However, in this procedure a permanent implant or expander is typically required to add volume to the breast mound. Even though we do remove muscle from the back, function is not lost as other back muscles compensate to allow you to enjoy all your normal activities. This procedure can sometimes be done immediately after mastectomy or can be delayed to any time afterward.
Congenital Deformities and Trauma Reconstruction
Plastic surgeons perform an estimated one million reconstructive procedures annually. Reconstructive surgery benefits people of all ages and helps solve a wide range of issues resulting from congenital deformities (birth defects) and trauma (injury, disease, and aging). Dr. Stephen Krant of SK Clinic in La Jolla perform masterful reconstructive surgery and are renowned for beautiful, meticulous work. Typical cases of congenital deformities that are treated with reconstructive surgery are birthmarks, cleft-lip deformities, missing or extra fingers, malformed ears, and irregular breast growth. Trauma cases that plastic surgeons work to resolve include burns, lacerations, injuries from auto accidents, and irregularities resulting from diseases such as cancer. Procedures vary according to the purpose of the reconstructive surgery and are customized to meet the needs of the individual. Please contact our La Jolla office today to consult with Dr. Krant about the best way to proceed with your situation.

ALA Photodynamic Therapy
ALA Photodynamic therapy is a non-invasive, painless technique that treats acne and actinic keratosis with wonderful results. Research has shown that ALA is very successful in 80 percent of patients with acne and completely clears up actinic keratosis in nearly 70 percent of patients. This technique has also been found successful in the treatment of sun damage, rosacea, hyperpigmentation, and reducing fine wrinkles. In addition, the quality of the skin is improved by decreasing redness and creating smoother skin with smaller pores. The therapy uses a topical, photosensitizing agent called ALA (5-aminolevulinic acid) that is activated by a specific wavelength of light. ALA Photodynamic therapy can treat the face, neck, chest, shoulder, back, arms, and hands. The number of treatments varies with each case, but several treatments are generally required and are spaced out three to four weeks at a time.
Fotofacial Treatment - Intense Pulse Light (IPL)
This innovative technique performed at SK Clinic uses revolutionary pulsed light technology to rejuvenate the skin with virtually no down time. Experience a series of full-face, décolleté, or hand treatments to eliminate redness, broken capillaries, or brown spots and reduce fine wrinkles and enlarged pores. Medical conditions such as rosacea, flushing, telangectasias, and melasma can be treated on any part of your body.
This is a relatively easy procedure to recover from. The treated areas are slightly swollen and pink for one to two days. Many patients are able to return to normal activities and work the following day. It is important to avoid sun exposure after the treatment, so wear your sun block. The expected results should be improved tone, texture, and color of your skin with lightening of brown pigmented spots. There is very minimal skin tightening, although the crow’s feet area lateral to the eyes seems to show good improvement. Your overall appearance is fresh, rested, and younger looking. Fraxel restore laser treatment requires a series of treatments (from 3 to 5) separated by 2-3 weeks each.
Fraxel re:pair treatment uses fractional technology. As an ablative procedure, Fraxel re:pair SST treatment uses a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser to vaporize microscopic columns of tissue deep within the skin. Fraxel re:pair treatment, performed by our Plastic surgeons is a more aggressive procedure and is used to treat the most severe signs of skin damage. Results are achieved in 1-2 treatments and wound care recovery time (usually 24-72 hours) is generally longer than other Fraxel treatments. To speed up the healing process from laser resurfacing at our La Jolla center, we administer oxygen treatments along with topical vitamins and minerals daily for five days. This speeds up the healing process, reduces excess reddening of the skin and makes this procedure comfortable, predictable, and safe. In as few as ten days, you will be able to apply make-up again!
