About the Practice

We established Plastic Surgery Specialists in Marin County, north of San Francisco, with the mission of providing the best experience available anywhere. That begins with our first hello and continues through every contact with our patients. We want you to enjoy your first visit, and we want you to keep coming back because you are treated with respect and care.

If you are considering surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedures, we invite you to request a consultation online or call (415) 886-0777 to make an appointment with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. People in all parts of Marin County and the San Francisco Bay Area travel to our Greenbrae clinic for the superior care that has become our hallmark.

A Team Approach

The unique collaboration between Dr. Stanley G. Poulos, Dr. Yngvar A. Hvistendahl and Dr. Douglas offer patients access to expertise and experience that’s rare to find at a single plastic surgery practice. We provide a specialized team approach when appropriate, such as for women undergoing a mommy makeover or other patients choosing to combine multiple procedures in a single operation. Our team extends beyond our plastic surgeons to a staff of highly trained medical professionals. We offer the latest technology and a stunning 6,000-square-foot facility that includes a state-of-the-art surgery center.

Spa PSS supports our surgical practice, offering aesthetic, non-surgical treatments in a discreet and tranquil atmosphere. We have skin tightening treatments, including the radio frequency-based Venus Legacy and Accent-Prime, Skin Tyte infrared laser and the state-of-the art Halo Hybrid Fractional laser system, as well as skin resurfacting with Venus Viva that is safe for all skin types. This incredible array of technology is all focused on restoring skin vibrancy to allow your complexion to glow. One of our most popular treatments is Microchanneling with PRP – a combination that stimulates natural collagen production which is boosted by applying your own body’s growth factors. The results leave smooth and rejuvenated skin on multiple levels.

We offer a wide variety of injectable fillers and Botox to maintain a youthful and confident look.

Patients not ready for surgery can achieve remarkable facial rejuvenation results with a “liquid lift”. For those needing hair removal, our Soprano Ice hair removal laser is a quick, easy, and painless way to rid yourself of unwanted hair. A Hydrafacial®treatment will leave your skin looking great and ready for any big event. A 30-45 minute Hydrafacial cleans, moisturizes and rejuvenates while exfoliating dead skin, extracting debris from pores, and evening skin tones.

We’ve added the NeoGraft hair restoration system to our offerings – a wonderful option for both men and women. NeoGraft produces dramatic natural results and permanent hair restoration without the need for a linear scar across the back of the scalp. When combined with a series of PRP treatments and our Nutrafol Vitamins, your hair transplant procedure at Plastic Surgery Specialists will be one of a kind.

For small, localized areas of stubborn fat, CoolSculpting is used to freeze away unwanted fat without surgery. For those with significant weight to lose (30-70 lbs), we are now offering the FDA approved Orbera gastric balloon treatment. This treatment consists of inserting a saline-filled balloon endoscopically to occupy space in the stomach, preventing overeating and allowing for sustained weight loss while being supported by nutrition and exercise specialists.

Our Viveve treatment restores women’s intimate health, increasing sensation, decreasing dryness and helping with stress incontinence.

Lastly, we offer convenient payment options to make either a big surgical procedure or regular maintenance affordable.
