I have a passion for health and beauty that shows in my work.

Philosophy

After training extensively in New York and running two practices in California, Dr. Andrew Ordon prides himself on understanding both east coast and west coast ideals of beauty. A host on the Emmy-award winning show "The Doctors", Dr. Ordon is board certified in both plastic surgery and head and neck surgery. “I enjoy my role as the unofficial spokesman for mainstream plastic surgery and board-certified doctors,” Dr. Ordon says.  

About My Practice

Do you do any pro bono work?

I helped found the surgical friends foundation, which connects people in need with volunteer reconstructive surgeons here in the US and abroad.

What makes your practice unique?

In addition to having the support of two board-certified plastic surgeons, with Dr. Ritu Chopra and me, our practice offers medi-spa and skin- care services to our patients. It's so important to offer noninvasive options because surgery isn't always the answer.

How do you show patients you care?

We offer overnight facilities at our rancho mirage plastic surgery institute to help patients through the process.

About Me

How would patients characterize you?

I'm told that how I am on TV is how I am at my practice. I take my work very seriously, but I don't take myself too seriously.

Why do you like being on the doctors?

It gives me renewed passion for what I've been doing for 30 years. I've touched the lives of so many people through my practice and now I'm touching the lives of millions of people on a daily basis here and in 22 countries around the world.

How would patient's characterize you?

FAQs

  1. How can I get rid of stretch marks?
    What our experts say:

    Stretch marks are scars that are an injury to the dermis. As such, there is no way to reverse them other than by cutting them out. If you have multiple stretch marks on a certain part of the body and we tighten that skin, they will appear better. For example, in a woman when we do a tummy tuck, we cut away some of the stretch marks and the remaining stretch marks will appear softer with some added tension. Some talk about treating these scars with CO2 lasers, and it can give some improvement, but you’re going to have to repeat the procedure and it won’t get rid of them entirely.

  2. What kind of recovery should a patient expect after a tummy tuck? Are there drains?
    What our experts say:

    It’s not like a c-section because we are not going inside the abdominal cavity.  The post-op discomfort is less than an intraabdominal procedure.

  3. What does a “mommy makeover” accomplish?
    What our experts say:

    Typically after pregnancy women will see changes to their tummy and breasts; so those are typically two areas we focus on.  For the breast, it may be as simple as an augmentation or we can go all the way to a formal lift. Likewise, with the tummy, they may just need spot liposuction or they may need a full abdominoplasty or just a modified or mini tummy tuck. Also, the muscles are often stretched with pregnancy and no diet or exercise will bring those back together. We have to reattach those muscles that have been spread apart. A combination of any of those procedures would entail a mommy makeover.

  4. What is the difference between a full, modified and mini tummy tuck?
    What our experts say:

    It all has to do with how much skin we are removing and whether we are repositioning the belly button or not. In a full, you are cutting around the belly button and removing skin from the pubic area to the belly button, creating new belly button. In a mini, we are removing less skin and are not removing the belly button. With a modified, we are not cutting around the belly button, but pulling it down or “floating” it; we leave it attached.  Typically in all three we are doing some work on muscles that have spread with pregnancy. It’s considered a permanent repair.  You have to ask your doctor which technique is best for you.

  5. What is a pain pump and when is it used? When and how is it removed?
    What our experts say:

    I use them, but rarely.  During surgery, we put in long-acting topical anesthetics, so the patient is comfortable immediately post-op.  It’s so we can control their biggest discomfort, which is during the first few hours when they wake up.
