What is the Ranch & Coast Difference?

In today’s world with “Dr. Google” and the accessibility of the internet, it is hard to determine which plastic surgeon to choose and why one is better than the other. Plastic surgeons are often looked at as a commodity in that we perform the same services equally. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. This can lead many patients to go to the less expensive and often less experienced or less qualified surgeons to have their procedure. Many prospective patients wouldn’t want a discount neurosurgeon or a discount parachute but are willing to roll the dice with their face or body. It doesn’t make a lot of sense.

So, what’s the difference? First and foremost is the experience, training, and skill of the surgeon. Cosmetic or aesthetic plastic surgery is an experience driven field. Gray hair is a plus for a plastic surgeon. Much like the book “outliers” in which they state that it takes 10,000 hours to master a skill, the same is true for plastic surgery. It takes hundreds of cases before you become a master at it. Not only are our doctors supremely experienced and the best at what they do; they make a point of thinking outside the box, researching new areas, and keeping up to date on the latest technologies and techniques, always looking to advance and improve patient results. At Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery we offer the best of everything—staff, facilities and equipment, even location.

Our top-notch doctors each have their own specialties—so much so that they regularly publish, lecture, and teach others. We are also extremely selective about who we work with; our nurses and anesthesiologists are a carefully curated few. When you come to Ranch & Coast for any procedure, you can rest assured that you will be cared for by the best medical practitioners in the most modern of facilities and using advanced state-of-the-art equipment. Our facility at Ranch and Coast Plastic Surgery is second to none. This center was designed to be a center of excellence and the premier plastic surgical center for the San Diego and Del Mar areas.

This is why we are Better


We only employ board-certified anesthesiologists. In fact, of the 34 anesthesiologists on staff at Scripps Memorial Hospital, we use four. We are the only facility that has this arrangement. It allows ownership of the care of the patients and equipment. We have developed certain preoperative medication protocols to diminish the discomfort of surgery and improve the overall experience. In fact, we are the only plastic surgery practice in the San Diego area to utilize ultrasound-guided blocks to diminish the discomfort of surgery. Less pain leads to less potential for nausea and a better outcome.

Have you asked other doctors you may be interviewing how old their anesthesia machine is? It’s a simple question. Our answer is three years old.


Ranch and Coast Plastic Surgery utilizes nurse RNs in our clinic instead of medical assistants because we believe that a more knowledgeable staff provides better service. Our four nurses have worked with Dr. Paul Chasan for a minimum of 10 years and up to 15 years. We also do not split our nurses’ operating room duties with recovery duties as most offices do. In other words, our operating room nurse does not recover a patient and circulate at the same time, period.

Overnight Stay

Ranch and Coast Plastic Surgery is one of the only plastic surgery centers in San Diego that has its own 23-hour overnight stay. We believe this is extremely important for larger cases such as a mommy makeover, facelift, and other combined procedures. Not only is it important for safety, but the pain management and the overall experience is better.

Location, Location, Location

Our office is located in the heart of downtown Del Mar, just north of San Diego and La Jolla, with its own parking lot. There is no need to go onto a busy hospital campus and fight for a parking spot or run into your friend who happens to be seeing her gynecologist.

Breast Surgery and Implants

As a center of excellence and a revisionary surgery center, the operating room is stocked with over 100 sizes and styles of breast implants. We use sizers in almost every breast surgery and have the luxury to be able to use almost any size or style implant to get best result. Additionally, we have a special pad on the operating room table that allows us to sit the patient up and evaluate the breast surgery results in both a sitting position and a lying down position. Most surgeons only operate with the patient lying down and use only a limited number of implants purchased for that day of surgery.

Additional Services

As always, we are committed to having the latest techniques and services available for our patients, this includes BOTOX and fillers performed by Dr. Paul Chasan or Nurse Injector. When it comes to Coolsculpting (non- invasive fat removal), we are in fact the only plastic surgery practice in north county with two machines and the ability to Dual-Sculpt. Our Coolsculpt technician is a “master technician.” We additionally offer a laser for almost everything from hair removal, to broken capillaries of the face, and even a fractional laser for facial wrinkling. Lastly, our newest treatment, IV Therapy, or vitamin infusion, uses an intravenous method for a healthy lifestyle at Drip Mar Del Mar.

Our mission is to provide the highest quality of cosmetic surgery with the best result possible, and with the best experience possible. We believe that Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery provides a level of service, sophistication, and attention to detail that is unique in the greater San Diego area.
