Dr. Singer’s practice in La Jolla is active and continuing; providing unparalleled surgical care to his patients from around the globe. He has distinguished himself as a leading cosmetic surgeon by focusing on training and education in cutting-edge techniques that have been proven safe and effective. While he may be best known for his facelifts, he performs a broad spectrum of surgical and non-surgical procedures to enhance the face, body and breasts. In addition to his finely tuned aesthetic sense, patients choose Dr. Singer because he is skilled, ethical, shows compassion, offers only proven safe procedures and is genuinely invested in helping them create their ideal appearance. Every treatment he performs is fully personalized to address his patients’ concerns and help them find confidence. Dr. Singer takes pride in his craft, prioritizing attention to detail to achieve balance and harmony for the most flattering and natural-looking results.

Most of his surgical procedures are performed in his elegant fully equipped state of the art nationally accredited office-based surgical facility on the campus of Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla.

In addition to providing his patients with the highest level of care, Dr. Singer also shows a continuing compassion for our community. He and his family have made contributions to many local organizations including the San Diego Council on Literacy, San Diego Zoo Global, San Diego Symphony, San Diego Humane Society, Wounded Warriors Project, and Lions, Tigers and Bears. As caring citizens of the international community, they are also involved with the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

When finding the perfect way to encompass the exceptional Dr. Singer, his Texas colleague Robert Whitfield, MD, current president of ASERF summarizes his character best, “He is an outstanding surgeon, educator and philanthropist.”
