I believe in offering the higher level of plastic surgical care, which includes expertise in the actual procedure, as well as helping the patient select the  appropriate operation. On many occasions, I recommend against surgery. Perhap...

What People Say About Dr. George Sanders, MD
RecentMost Helpful

Dr. Sanders performed a facelift, lower eye, neck and laser treatment on me less than one month ago and I can already see a vast improvement. All of this with minimal discomfort—he is phenomenal. Two of my close friends also had facelifts performed by Dr. Sanders over a year ago and they look beautiful! His staff is very personable and Nurse Karen is fantastic! Having their Silk day spa upstairs is an added bonus—Lisa is a “must see”. Can’t say enough about Dr. Sanders and staff.

I received excellent care by Dr. Sanders and his office staff all throughout the course of my procedure. He was thorough and professional in explaining what was going to be done, the billing/paperwork was very streamlined, he made personal follow-up phone calls after the procedure and the office staff were extremely efficient and professional, yet friendly. A person actually picks up the phone after one ring! Highly recommend!

I believe it was the late 90s when I had my facelift with Dr. Sanders. I am now 87 and living in a retirement community in Northern California. People still remark about my beautiful skin and how young I look. Just before I went under, Dr. Sanders asked me what I was hoping for and I said, "A soft sixties." I got that and more--but never looked like I'd had a facelift. Thank you, Dr. Sanders

Dr. Sanders and his staff were all very friendly and personable. I felt very valued as a patient and after my consult for a facelift & necklift, I decided to schedule the surgery date. I am so happy that I went with Dr. Sanders as he is so calm and reassuring and made this a pleasant experience. The staff provided me with all of the information I needed and were also very responsive. Nurse -NP Karen is also great! She has such a great personality and is friendly. Highly recommend!!

Around four months ago I had a face lift by Dr. George H. Sanders; I am very happy with the results. I look much younger than before and that tired, stern look is gone from my face. I also like it that it looks very natural. I planned and changed my hairstyle right after the surgery, so people are commenting: "You look great! You've changed your hair style?" I say, yes, thank you ;-) Dr. Sanders is very kind and capable and has a great team that responded to my questions & concerns promptly.

I have had three plastic procedures with Dr.Sanders and each time I have felt in the best of hands. He is a very good surgeon and the results have always great. His office staff is professional & friendly. Great office, great doctor. I have referred him to many of my friends and they have all been very happy with their results.

Dr. Sanders and his staff were wonderful to me pre-op and post-op. I appreciated his calm demeanor at each visit, and never made me feel rushed at my appointments. He is very caring and concerned and made me feel comfortable at all times! In the future, I would only see him and would recommend him to anyone!

I can't say enough about Dr. Sanders and his staff. I searched for a surgeon to perform an abdominoplasty. I was very nervous. I did my research. I checked everything that could be checked on Dr. Sanders. I scheduled a consultation and was quite surprised at how soon I was able to come in to see him. During my app

Dr. Sanders, i believe, is effortlessly the best plastic surgeon in Los Angeles. Not only is he highly skilled, he is gracious, kind, humble and authentically cares about his clients, I have had two procedures from him, 12 years apart. Both times he incredibly turned my liabilities into assets. He also discouraged other work I considered having done. That aside, you will not find anyone more likeable and pleasant to work with. His staff reflect the same high standards. Incredible.
