CALNW NB58 Taghva Profile
NewBeauty Top Doctor Since 2019

Goretti H. Taghva

Plastic Surgeon
20360 SW Birch Street, Suite 180, Newport Beach, CA, 92660
My role is to enhance beauty, not change it.


Although widely regarded as a national opinion leader on blepharoplasty and Asian aesthetic surgery, Dr. Goretti H. Taghva has honed her surgical and nonsurgical techniques through a diverse range of procedures that also include rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, facial rejuvenation and Mommy Makeovers. “To understand what my patients really want, I look at aesthetics firstly as a woman and secondly as a surgeon. Because of my background, I work very hard to not apply a single beauty standard to every patient, and instead, tailor my approach to each individual.” This customization starts with the amount of time she spends with each patient long before treatment ever begins. “The most important thing is talking with my patients,” she says. “Through our conversations, I make sure they understand the risks, what the recovery period is like and what changes we can realistically achieve.”

A Minute With

  1. What are your most requested procedures?

    Upper and lower blepharoplasty, fat
    transfer, endoscopic breast surgery
    and endoscopic browlift

  2. How does your staff enhance your practice?

    My staff shares my philosophy when
    dealing with patients, and they pride
    themselves on treating every one of
    them individually rather than like
    just another patient

  3. What surgical trends are you seeing at your practice?

    I am seeing a trend toward more
    nonsurgical and less-invasive
    surgery. I’m glad to see the trend is
    moving away from large Baywatch-style breast implants of the past.
    Women are now looking for a more
    sophisticated look, which is definitely
    my preference

  4. What new services are you excited to offer?

    Endoscopic breast augmentation,
    Vivace RF Microneedling, Selphyl®
    Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix treatments
    and EMSCULPT®

  5. How do you provide the safest environment for your patients?

    We have recently built a brand-new,
    state-of-the-art office and accredited
    surgery center from the ground up
    to provide patients with the latest
    surgical advances

  6. How are you helping to advance the field at large?

    I pride myself on traveling
    internationally to exchange
    ideas with other plastic surgeons
    in other countries

  7. What i’m best known for

    Blepharoplasty and
    Asian aesthetics

  8. What i love most about my profession

    I like the real, positive and
    immediate difference I can
    make in a patient’s life

  9. Three words that best describe me

    Humble, caring,

  10. Who is the best candidate for a fat transfer to the breasts?

    Patients who want
    fuller looking breasts
    without looking “fake”
    or a better breast
    shape without going
    too much larger.
