Plastic Surgery

Dr. Edward Ricciardelli is one of the best trained plastic surgeons in the country. He is double-board certified in plastic surgery and ear, nose and throat and is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS).

Dr Ricciardelli specializes in facelift, volume enhancing facelift, S-lift, eye surgery, breast augmentation, nose surgery (rhinoplasty), liposuction and love handles. Our operating room received the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF) award.  This distinction ensures that patients receive the highest quality patient care in an outpatient surgery setting. Every surgery patient receives a personal phone call from Dr. Ricciardelli following surgery.

Thanks to state-of-the-art techniques, like platelet rich plasma, cosmetic surgery patients enjoy shortened recovery times. This means you look better and feel better faster – and experience more natural looking results.

If surgery is not in your treatment plan the Summit offers a wide variety of dermal fillers and injectables. We are a platinum level provider for Allergan, the makers of Botox, Juvederm, Juvederm XC, and Latisse. We often offer discounts and advance release of new products to our patients. Make sure that we have your email address when you come in so that you can take advantage of the services. We also offer Radiesse, Resylane, Perlane and Sculptra dermal fillers. Nothing is more gratifying than having an immediate change after a dermal filler. These are great for fine wrinkles, deep wrinkles and folds in the skin.

General Dermatology

We offer timely dermatology appointments and treat a variety of skin conditions like rashes, acne, skin cancer and reconstruction, dermatitis, dry skin, eczema, hair loss, hives, itchy skin, melasma, moles, nail disease, rosacea and warts. This is just a few of the skin conditions we treat. Call 794-5355 for your appointment today. We often can give you a same day appointment.

Remember that living on the coast increases your risk of skin cancer. We offer tips for preventing sun damage and ways to be proactive with your skin health. It’s never too late to start. Our goal at Summit Plastic Surgery & Dermatology is to develop a long-term relationship with our patients.

Cosmetic Skin Treatments & Laser Treatments

Our medical aestheticians perform advanced skin rejuvenation procedures and treatments, like chemical peels, medical grade skin care products, and eyelash lengtheners. These treatments improve skin uniformity and remove or minimize wrinkles, age spots and skin irregularities.

The Summit has a vast array of the latest laser therapies to improve skin aging, skin color irregularities, spider veins, fine line and wrinkles and remove unwanted hair.
