Plastic Surgery for Torrance & Los Angeles | South Bay Plastic Surgeons

Long Beach plastic surgeon Dr. Charles Spenler joins Dr. Lisa Jewell in welcoming Dr. Michael Newman to the South Bay Plastic Surgeons.

TORRANCE, CA – December 18, 2007 – Thanks to both technological advances and a wider variety of both surgical and non-surgical options for rejuvenating or enhancing the face and body (and no thanks to shows like “Dr. 90210” and “nip/tuck”), plastic surgery is more popular than ever before. And nowhere is plastic surgery’s popularity more evident than in Southern California, specifically in OC-adjacent Long Beach.

But, as demand for plastic surgery in Long Beach increases, the demand for highly qualified plastic surgeons also grows. “Especially for those doctors who specialize in the most popular plastic surgery procedures in Long Beach – breast enlargement, tummy tuck and liposuction,” says Dr. Charles Spenler.

A board certified Long Beach plastic surgeon, Dr. Spenler specializes in ultrasonic liposuction (UAL) and breast surgery, as well as endoscopic, minimally invasive plastic surgery in Long Beach. He’s also quite skilled at finding other highly-trained plastic surgeons, like he did first with Dr. Lisa Jewell, and most recently with the addition of Dr. Michael Newman.

“I was really happy to welcome Dr. Lisa Jewell to the South Bay Plastic Surgeons back in October of 2006,” says Dr. Spenler, “because she’s not only a fantastic surgeon, of course, but because she specializes in breast reconstruction surgery, including the DIEP Flap.”

Then, in 2007, he added another surgeon, Dr. Michael Newman.

And as Dr. Spenler says, “While specialization is important, so is experience in a wide range of cosmetic and reconstructive surgeries of both the face and body. This is precisely what Dr. Newman brings to the South Bay Plastic Surgeons, and the advantage we’re able to offer patients.”

Dr. Newman joined Dr. Spenler and Dr. Jewell after completing a one year fellowship in cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery at Georgetown University with Dr. Scott Spear, a noted breast surgery expert.

“Although the three of us have our special areas of interest, ultimately, we each enjoy and excel at all facets of plastic surgery. It’s what makes a true team and a great option for patients considering plastic surgery procedures in Long Beach, such as breast enlargement, tummy tuck or liposuction.”
