Atlanta facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Fernando Burstein has been practicing facial cosmetic and reconstructive surgery for over 25 years. As a practicing partner at Atlanta Plastic Surgery, P.C. since 1989, he prides himself on providing exceptional patient care while providing natural-looking results. Performing the latest techniques in cosmetic procedures like rhinoplasty, face lift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), and more, Dr. Burstein enjoys providing his patients excellent cosmetic and reconstructive surgery results with the most advanced plastic and reconstructive surgery techniques at his Atlanta, GA office locations. He stays up-to-date on the latest technology as well, like Ultherapy® and Sciton® Erbium laser treatments.
Specializing in cosmetic surgery of the face, Dr. Burstein’s approach is unique in that he uses a patient’s own tissue, bone, and fat rather than implants when at all possible to minimize the risk of surgical complications while maximizing the naturalness of his plastic surgery results. His knowledge of the facial profile and ability to produce subtle results are his trademarks. One of the nation’s leading facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons, Dr. Burstein has been named a Top Doc in Atlanta nine times and given nationwide recognition on numerous occasions. Alongside Certified Nurse Practitioner Debra (Debi) Cooper, Imaging Assistant Michelle Coppenger, and Administrative Assistants Lisa Merlino and Veronica Flores, Dr. Burstein works diligently to help patients reach their cosmetic goals.

Growing older is inevitable. Influenced by a variety of factors such as heredity, sun exposure, and lifestyle, aging is not something we can fully control. While there are certainly measures that can be taken to minimize the rate at which we age, anti-aging cosmetic procedures individually tailored to your cosmetic needs are, I feel, the best way to address those issues that do arise.
Because no two faces age exactly the same, my graduated approach allows Atlanta patients to identify those issues that are important to them during a consultation and promotes an open line of communication with me and my team so that a customized care plan can be devised and their cosmetic results can be maximized. Regardless of procedure scope, from improving skin texture to balancing features by reversing sagging in the neck and jowls, I encourage patients to maintain realistic goals and advocate a natural appearance that enhances their best features while minimizing risk, recovery time, and patient expense.
Given that facial aging is ongoing, I also seek to educate patients on the ever-expanding menu of postoperative skin care (e.g. chemical peels and dermal injectables) and maintenance-type procedures (Ultherapy® skin tightening and MatrixRF™ laser skin resurfacing) available to extend and enhance the results of their surgery for years afterward.
