Garrett A. Wirth, MD

Orange County Plastic Surgeon

Garrett Wirth, MD is a respected and skilled plastic surgeon who specializes in breast reconstruction, as well as facial, neck and body aesthetics.

Dr. Wirth says he is not the first to embrace the new or the last to let go of the old. “I do what I believe works…and lasts; there are no short cuts when it comes to plastic surgery,” he explains. Proper planning at the front end will get the best results, and that’s what Dr. Wirth insists on. “Whether it’s the breasts, face or body, it’s always about harmony and balance,” he says; “you can’t isolate one element from all others.”

“My goal is to make the breast reconstruction patient feel whole.”

After a mastectomy, many women feel incomplete. In breast reconstruction, Dr. Wirth wants each woman to feel beautiful and feminine again, meaning she can wear the clothing she loves and remain proud of her body.

In facial plastic surgery, Dr. Wirth says he can set the clock back ten or even fifteen years, restoring a patient’s appearance to a more youthful version. “I don’t change faces; I rejuvenate them,” he says. His techniques are highly refined and, therefore, require less downtime – with minimal bruising or swelling. “I want women to be able to resume their lives quickly, with little or no make-up after the procedures,” he says.

“I listen first.”

Dr. Wirth says he has to be able to “repeat back to the patient” what she is looking for – no assumptions. “Then we are a team,” he says, “so I can match the surgical technique to the patient’s ultimate goal. Patients know that I’ll take excellent care of them.”

In addition to plastic surgery, Dr. Wirth performs a variety of non-invasive procedures for skin care, facial enhancement and rejuvenation, such as lip enhancement, injectable fillers, fat injections, laser treatments, Botox® injections, and more.

“It’s a privilege to work with people who put their trust in me.”

“I can change one life at a time, and it’s an honor and privilege to work with people who put their trust in me,” Dr. Wirth says. “It’s a huge responsibility to enhance or modify a part of a human being. When a woman tells me her life has changed, that she wants to go out into the world more, and that she starts each day in a more positive mood – that’s my joy.”
