TELL US ABOUT YOUR OCCUPATIONAL BACKGROUND.
“I have won numerous research awards and have published widely, including multiple chapters in the main textbook used to teach facial plastic and reconstructive surgery fellows. I have been at the Manhattan Beach location for five years and was a clinical instructor at UCSF before moving to Southern California.”
WHAT IS UNIQUE ABOUT YOUR STYLE AND TECHNIQUE?
As a female surgeon in a largely male-dominated field, I bring the personal experience of aging in today’s society from a woman’s perspective. I actively try out new technologies and products on myself so I can better educate my patients about them. I believe that being a patient myself inspires confidence in my patients.”
WHAT IS YOUR #1 PIECE OF ADVICE TO THOSE CHOOSING HEALTH CARE AS THEIR CAREER?
“Love what you do! I love seeing patients improve and feel better about themselves. I love operating and performing procedures in the office. I enjoy each day that I can use my skills and training in helping others.”
WHAT TREND IS CHANGING YOUR SPECIALTY TODAY?
“Patients are increasingly requesting less-invasive procedures with less recovery time and the ability to return to their families and to work quickly. More patients are turning to the multiple in-office services that can be done without the need for general anesthesia or a long recovery period. I am currently one of a few physicians in the LA area offering the recently FDA-approved non-invasive laser assisted facelift in my office.”
Dr. Egan is dual board-certified in both otolaryngology head and neck surgery and facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Her practice incorporates her surgical skills with a focus on aesthetics and the desire for a more youthful and natural appearance. She is cognizant that a healthy, active lifestyle predominates in the South Bay and that patients desire subtle changes to their appearance to restore an image of themselves that matches how they feel.
Laser Facelift is a one-time, one-hour, minimally invasive treatment designed to tighten the skin of the face and neck and remove excess fat using SmartLipo technology and no scalpel. This can be performed at the office and does not require general anesthesia. Laser Lift uses the latest technology to take laser energy underneath your skin and stimulate collagen production in the dermis, which leads to improved skin elasticity, thickness and texture.
