Dr. Vishal Kapoor is a specialist in all aspects of Aesthetic Surgery with a special emphasis on body contouring surgery, facial plastic surgery, and breast surgery. He is one of the few Southern California plastic surgeons proficient in the SMAS-platysma bidirectional face lift (deep layer or muscle), which achieves a more natural, longer-lasting result than the standard face lift. His patients especially appreciate his caring bedside manner, meticulous attention to detail, and ability to create a natural appearance. Making a difference in people’s lives and participating in their positive changes in self-confidence are two key reasons why Dr. Kapoor chose to specialize in aesthetic plastic surgery.
Dr. Vishal Kapoor, a Southern California native received his medical degree from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston, where he graduated with the highest honor, Alpha Omega Alpha, putting him in the top 10% of his class. He then went on to complete a rigorous six-year residency in the prestigious combined General and Plastic Surgery Program at The University of Washington in Seattle, one of the nation’s finest programs in Plastic Surgery. Given his desire to further hone his skills in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr, Kapoor opted to pursue additional training.
He was selected by Dr. John Owsley, one of the pioneers in modern facelift surgery techniques, to complete a dedicated year long fellowship at the world renowned Aesthetic Surgery Institute in San Francisco, California, where he perfected his techniques in facial and whole body cosmetic surgery. He is one of a select few of individuals with subspecialty cosmetic surgery training in the greater Los Angeles area.
The decision to undergo elective plastic surgery is both a significant and personal one. I believe this process starts with our initial consultation where we will first spend as much time as we need to get to know each other and to discuss your plastic surgery goals. I will help you to feel free to ask me any question or express any concerns. After this conversation, you will be carefully examined so that I can learn and understand your desired outcomes. From this time together, I can formulate the right surgical plan to help you reach your optimal result.
My approach to each patient is unique and individually tailored to give you the best result possible. Because you have your own specific goals and unique anatomy, you need and deserve an individualized approach. My staff and I also carefully explain the procedure in detail, answer your questions about anesthesia and other concerns, and then discuss both your anticipated recovery and techniques to optimize your result. Because aesthetic plastic surgery is an elective procedure, I will only proceed when you have a clear understanding of the procedure and are
comfortable with our plan.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) is the largest plastic surgery specialty organization in the world. Founded in 1931, the society is composed of board-certified plastic surgeons that perform cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. The mission of ASPS is to advance quality care to plastic surgery patients by encouraging high standards of training, ethics, physician practice and research in plastic surgery.
The society advocates for patient safety, such as requiring its members to operate in accredited surgical facilities that have passed rigorous external review of equipment and staffing. Only members of the ASPS may display the ASPS logo. This symbol of excellence in plastic surgery is what to look for when deciding on a surgeon. It tells you that you are choosing a physician who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery or by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada important credentials.
