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) 925-2880 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 and Dr. Yngvar A. Hvistendahl offers 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.

The PSS Spa supports our aesthetic practice, offering aesthetic medical skin treatments in a spa-style atmosphere. We have skin tightening treatments, including Venus Legacy; complexion analysis, and treatments including Venus Viva, and a wide array of fillers, Botox, and state-of-the art lasers to take years off, with minimal or no down time. Our newest addition is the hydrafacial®, for cleaning, moisturizing and rejuvenating the complexion, while experiencing spa-like relaxation.

For localized areas of stubborn fat we have the latest in CoolSculpting technology, to freeze away unwanted fat without surgery. For those with significant weight to lose (30-70 lbs), we are now offering the FDA approved Obalon balloon treatment. This treatment consists of swallowing a series of capsules, (inflated in the stomach to take up space and reset appetite) and watch the pounds come off, while you are supported by nutrition and exercise specialists.
