About Dr. Taylor

Dr. Taylor is a nationally recognized, board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in all areas of cosmetic surgery. His training in the field is extensive and was done at prestigious institutions across the country: Dartmouth College, Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons, UCLA Medical Center and USC Medical Center. He has been in private practice in Pasadena, CA for over 20 years providing high quality cosmetic surgery to patients from the southern California area as well as those from other parts of the country and abroad.

As an expert in cosmetic surgery of the face, Dr. Taylor recognizes the vital role of healthy skin in the recovery process from cosmetic surgery and the preservation of these results
over time. Most of us take our healthy skin for granted during our youthful years but as we age so does the quality of our skin. Starting in our late 20’s and early 30’s fine lines and wrinkles start to form as a result of the loss of collagen and elastin fibers which are crucial to the elasticity and tone of our skin. Epithelial cell turnover slows down and we accumulate a layer of dead cells on our skin surface that dulls the appearance and roughens the texture of our skin. Lastly, various blemishes and areas of hyper-pigmentation start to show up on our previously flawless, pink skin taking away from our natural glow. In addition, living
in southern California is more problematic for our skin as we are constantly exposed to an array of noxious elements, such as excessive sun exposure and significant air pollution.

Dr. Taylor feels strongly that everyone should be on a good skin care regimen starting in their 20’s, regardless of whether any cosmetic surgery is planned. Good skin care is part of a positive lifestyle along with a good diet and frequent exercise. Dr. Taylor himself has been a consistent user of skin care products for over a decade.

Good skin care starts with good skin care products. Over the counter products are wonderful for cleaning, toning,
and moisturizing skin, but not for treating our skin. Products purchased through a doctor’s office or ones given as a prescription generally have much higher concentrations of essential active ingredients. Our skin care products at Taylor Plastic Surgery Center have been carefully chosen by Dr. Taylor and his skin care consultants to provide our patients with a diverse menu of high-quality products that really work. We hope you enjoy our products and look forward to seeing the improvements in your skin health.
