Our Practice

Facial Plastic Surgeon Sacramento | Dr. Andrew G. Pichler, M.D.The Facial & Cosmetic Surgery Center of the North Area now specializes in providing non-invasive facial cosmetic rejuvenation services to patients in Carmichael, California and the greater Sacramento area.

This practice was established by Dr. Andrew Pichler, M.D., a Board Certified Facial Plastic surgeon who has successfully performed thousands of facial plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, such as facelifts, eyelid tucks, rhinoplasties and forhead/brow lifts, for more than 30 years.

As of 2015 Dr Pichler has stopped doing surgical procedures in order to focus exclusively on non-invasive facial enhancement procedures, such as skin care with unique, specially formulated skin care products, fillers (restylane, perlane, radiesse) , muscle attenuators (Dysport) and various skin peels (alpha hydroxyl/glycolic, Obagi Radience, TCA, Obagi Blue).

Because of demand for his expertise, Dr Pichler still provides second opinion consultations for facial cosmetic procedures.

The Philosophy of Our Practice

"First and foremost to listen to our patients, address their concerns, take all the time that is needed and answer all questions honestly. Recommend a follow up consultation at no charge if there are any lingering doubts or uncertainties, and encourage seeking other opinions."
