Dr. Charles Galanis recognizes that deciding to undergo plastic surgery and select a plastic surgeon can be frightening and overwhelming. He considers it a privilege to assist patients in either restoring form or helping them achieve a particular look they desire.
His training background in Los Angeles – considered by many to be an epicenter of plastic surgery – has afforded him the skill set to best assist his patients. Dr. Galanis believes in establishing a trusting and honest relationship with his patients before making decisions. He strives to fully understand his patient’s goals, design and clearly explain a custom-tailored plan, and ultimately deliver beautiful results.
Although fully trained in all areas of plastic surgery, Dr. Galanis’ main areas of interest are non-invasive skin treatments, cosmetic surgery of the breast and body, and reconstructive surgery for breast and skin cancer.
