Dr. Palmer was recently named "ONE OF THE WORLD’S BEST" Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons by the international media.

A native of Pennsylvania, Dr. Palmer has resided in Southern California since 1973. He graduated with honors from San Diego State University and received his M.D. degree from the University of California Irvine School of Medicine. Major emphasis was placed on Facial Plastic Surgery during his five year residency in Head and Neck Surgery at USC-LA County Medical Center (the largest medical teaching institution in the world). Following board certification, Dr. Palmer completed a one year fellowship with the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and is board certified with the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr.Palmer also completed a one year fellowship with the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and is board eligible with the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.

Dr. Palmer has been Director of Facial Plastic Surgery for the Head and Neck Surgery Department at the University of Southern California School of Medicine since 1991. As an artist in watercolor, oil and acrylic mediums who’s style can best be described as photorealism, he considers himself a modern day soft tissue sculptor adding his artistic flair to every aspect of his surgery. "Plastic surgery is artistry", says Dr. Palmer, author of an upcoming book revealing his revolutionary new concepts of beauty and aesthetics in plastic surgery. "Plastic surgery, in order to be inspired work, must incorporate both the art and science of beauty. The surgeon must have an aesthetic eye". This philosophy has led to the development of two trademarked techniques that are helping shape the future of plastic surgery: the "Facial Contour®" Facelift and the "Ever Full®" Lip Enhancement. "Males and females both become more masculine appearing as they age. My procedures artistically bring out facial features, thereby giving the face a more contoured youthful anatomy".
