Dr. Sheffield's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Sheffield "Dr. Sheffield's interest in aesthetics began at an early age whether it was painting or wood carving. After following the footsteps of a number of family members he finished medical school at the University of Tennessee and headed west for surgical internship in Los Angeles. After a tour of duty in the military he completed residency training at the University of Florida. After several years of private practice in north county of San Diego he continued his innovative surgery by being one of the first surgeons in San Diego performing complicated reconstructive procedures of the head and neck region. His desire for further education and research lead him to Dallas for further training in plastic surgery at the premier training program in the US. He continued his interest in ear reconstruction and further expanded his training experience in all aspects of the field including aesthetic surgery. Dr. Sheffield was one of the founders of annual Rhinoplasty Symposium which still today is the best teaching course in the world. He remained an Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern for several years before relocating to Santa Barbara in 1991. Since that time he practiced plastic surgery in Montecito. He is a life member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and a life member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. He was active in the American Cancer Society in Santa Barbara including the board of directors. Dr. Sheffield also was the medical director for the Santa Barbara Triathlon for ten years. In 2002 he spent several weeks in Bolivia performing cleft lip and palate surgery along with burn reconstruction. He appreciated his chance to see what medical issues exit elsewhere and how lucky we are to have the sophisticated care here in the US. . In 2010 he transitioned a fellow plastic surgeon into his practice and for a few years developed an interest in growing Meyer lemons. After a short time he realized his dedication and challenge of medicine were his true passion and therefore, returned to practice joining several well respected dermatologists in Santa Barbara. In recent years he has come to the conclusion that non surgical or minimally invasive surgery has an important role and a major advantage for patients because the quality of the results are quite good and the recovery time is minimal. His focus today is still the same in terms of goals for patients, having them feel his dedication and devotion to them is unparalleled. The field of plastic surgery and dermatology is changing and today the quality of results are better than ever. Patients have more options to choose procedures that are more or less invasive."
This content was provided by Dr. Sheffield "Dr. Sheffield 's practice today is focused of less invasive minimal and non-surgical methods of facial rejuvenation. The options seem endless but the idea is to understand the patient's goals and offer to the patient a reasonable treatment plan which would come up to their expectations."
