Making a Difference — One Patient at a Time

Dr. Paydar helps guide his patients on the exciting journey to become the best versions of themselves through transformative aesthetic procedures. He believes his purpose as a surgeon is to empower his patients to feel more confident by helping them reach their goals.

This empowerment begins well before surgery. During his consultations, Dr. Paydar gives his patients the time to explore and fully understand the various surgical and non-surgical options available. He helps his patients develop realistic expectations for their aesthetic journeys and gives them the information they need to weigh the pros and cons of each procedure.

As a surgeon, Dr. Paydar prioritizes patient safety and excellent outcomes. “The first chance is the best chance to get the right result,” he says. That result may come from surgery, but it could also come from a non-surgical procedure. This is why he spends quality time with each patient during the consultation process to determine the right and best course of action. Patient care and trust are paramount, and Dr. Paydar goes above and beyond to ensure absolute confidence and satisfaction.

Dedicated to Artistry and Precision

Once he is committed to proceeding with a patient, Dr. Paydar utilizes every bit of his experience, artistry, and dedication to precision to create the very best outcome possible. He invests the time and attention needed in the operating room to achieve results that are second to none. Following every procedure, Dr. Paydar provides the thoughtful care and follow up that all patients deserve.

Dr. Paydar skillfully performs a full spectrum of face, breast, body, and non-surgical procedures. For facial procedures, he provides outstanding results for procedures including facelifts, brow lifts, fat injections, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), and rhinoplasty. He excels in breast and body procedures including breast augmentation, breast lifts, mommy makeovers, tummy tucks, and liposuction. He also provides superb non-surgical procedures through injectables and laser skin rejuvenation.

In addition to these offerings, Dr. Paydar finds a deep sense of purpose in reconstructive surgery of the face, breast, and body for cancer and trauma patients. “It’s incredibly rewarding to see the life-changing difference that patients experience following plastic and reconstructive surgery,” he says.

Dr. Paydar is an active member of multiple prestigious and nationally recognized medical groups, including the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He is an associate member of the Orange County Society of Plastic Surgeons and the California Society of Plastic Surgeons.
