Del Mar: Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery opens in village

After 16 years in La Jolla, Dr. Paul Chasan has moved his practice into the Del Mar Village, opening Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery in early February.

The stand-alone complex is the first in downtown, and it offers an array of surgical procedures for the face, breasts and body, walk-in Botox and filler appointments, laser hair removal, laser facial resurfacing, and esthetician services.

“When I first started as a surgeon, it made sense to be on a hospital campus,” said Chasan, who has been on the staff of Scripps Memorial Hospital since he started his practice. “But I put myself in a patient’s position, and I know nobody likes going to the hospital. I wanted this practice in Del Mar to have a warm, friendly touch. My goal is to provide the ultimate experience for patients.”

To achieve that goal, the 5,000-square-foot space, which was formerly a clothing store, has been transformed into a state-of-the-art complex that features two operating theatres. Near the street front there will be a small retail space run by Chasan’s wife, Mary. The in-house boutique is called Pebbles by the Sea and it will carry high-end skincare products, post-surgical compressive garments and comfort wear. Hidden from street view is an exit door so patients can be discharged directly to their cars after surgery.

“This gives our patients a way to exit discreetly, so providing that privacy was an important feature for me to include,” he explained.

Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery can accommodate patients overnight, and there is also a playroom for parents with kids in tow.

“I’m a parent of two small children, so I know the value of having [a playroom],” Chasan said. “If you’re coming in for a 20-minute appointment, it doesn’t make sense to hire a babysitter, so we’re more than happy to accommodate patients who bring their kids.”

Chasan is a board-certified member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeon, an expert on revisionary breast surgery, and routinely lectures nationally for Allergan Corporation, the maker of breast implants. He graduated Alpha Omega Alpha and Magna Cum Laude from Creighton University School of Medicine in Omaha, Neb. He completed his general surgical residency at the UC San Diego Medical Center and his plastic surgery residency at the University of Utah Medical Center in Salt Lake City.

Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery is at 1431 Camino del Mar, a block south of the Del Mar Plaza. For more information, visit ranch&
