With a Specialty in Facial Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. George Orloff Offers Innovative Procedures to Transform from Head to Toe

Distinguishing his practice from other cosmetic surgery centers, Dr. Orloff specializes in facial procedures and offers customized, prescription skin care products for each individual patient

Beverly Hills, CA July 15, 2004 -- In the world of cosmetic surgery, it's true that no two patients are alike, but more importantly, no two doctors are alike. Offering commonly requested procedures paired with the most innovative technology, Dr. Orloff also performs many non-surgical treatment options. Dr. Orloff is prestigiously recognized as a leader in facial cosmetic surgery. To complement his work, Dr. Orloff offers a personalized skin care line designed to meet the different needs of each patient. Acknowledging that each person who walks through his office door has individual needs, Dr. Orloff and his staff at the Buena Vista Surgery Center including his wife, Blanka Orloff, the Anesthesiologist fully evaluates each patient to achieve the most flattering results possible.

Finding a cosmetic surgeon (especially in Los Angeles) is not a challenge, there are hundreds. However, finding the right cosmetic surgeon can be daunting. For those who long for face procedures such as mini and major face lifts or nasal enhancement and reconstruction, Dr. Orloff offers a unique advantage in that he was chosen as the prestigious and sole Fellow in Craniofacial Surgery at UCLA for one intense year. This top training and hands-on experience lends him credibility that sets him apart from other cosmetic surgeons. Unlike other specialists in his field, Dr. Orloff is able to re-create a person's appearance from the inside out, literally. Using the skill set he acquired through his Fellowship experience, he meticulously combines the art of interior and exterior cosmetic surgery to produce a complete look for his patient's face. He truly has the ability to focus on the face to help create the whole package.

Recognizing that each person has different skin in terms of color, dryness, oiliness, acne prevalence, age and skin texture, Dr. Orloff created a scientifically generated skincare line that boasts customized treatment for individual patient needs. Dr. Orloff meets with a patient one on one (cosmetic surgery patients, those who are only interested in the skin care line or other facial services) to produce a formula made from scratch to suit his or her individual skin needs. For example, when approached by a patient with fair, sensitive skin, he creates a prescription that includes ingredients to protect the skin from the elements while moisturizing and toning at the same time. The result is much more powerful than any skin care available over the counter. The most important difference between his skin care line and what's found in stores is that it is created for each persons individual and varying needs.

"People have many options and decisions regarding cosmetic surgery," says Dr. Orloff. "We understand that each patient is different and we enjoy working with our patients one-on-one to create the best possible treatment plan."

About The Prescription Skincare Line
As mentioned above, Dr. Orloff offers patients a cosmetic/skincare line that is much more effective than any over the counter, store-bought products. Available at his office, the Buena Vista Surgery Center in Burbank, California, this invigorating product line is designed by Dr. Orloff with a pharmacist. The products are created individually for each patient based on his or her skin type needs. Dr. Orloff's office also carries a full line of high end over the counter medications, but prefers putting his patients on an individualized skin care program.

A facelift is a surgical procedure to repair sagging, drooping, and wrinkled skin of the face and neck. It is performed to improve visible signs of aging, poor diet, or heredity; it is performed by removing excess fat, tightening underlying muscles, and redraping facial and neck skin.


Sagging or wrinkled skin occurs naturally with increasing age. Folds and fat deposits appear around the neck, and deep flexion creases form between the nose and mouth. The jawline grows "jowly" and slack. Heredity, poor diet, smoking, or obesity may contribute to early or severe skin problems.

A facelift can help repair some of the visible damage to skin, fat, and muscles and can restore a "younger" look. A facelift can be done alone or with nose reshaping, a forehead lift, or eyelid surgery.

While the patient is sleepy (sedated) and pain-free (local anesthesia) or deep asleep and pain-free (general anesthesia), the plastic surgeon makes incisions above the hairline at the temples, behind the earlobe, to the lower scalp.

The surgeon removes some of the fat tissue and loose skin, then stitches (sutures) the incisions closed. The fat tissue is called the SMAS layer and is the primary lifting portion of the facelift.
