Dr. Lisa Cassileth

Dr. Lisa Cassileth, MD, FACS

Dr. Lisa Cassileth is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon specializing in cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery. Grounded by her Ivy League training and certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), she brings exceptional skill and knowledge to the field. Dr. Cassileth's career is marked by her notable role as the past Chief of Plastic Surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she led for two consecutive terms.

Surgical Expertise

Dr. Cassileth is renowned for her advanced, minimal-incision reconstructive and cosmetic surgery techniques. These techniques ensure her patients receive beautiful, natural-looking results. Her focus extends across a broad range of body procedures, particularly those involving the breast.

She is a leader in the field of breast revision surgery - correcting previous surgeries that other doctors have been unable to fix. Patients from all over the world seek her out for her one-stage breast reconstruction, which allows mastectomy patients to wake up from surgery with their breasts intact rather than face multiple surgeries.

Dr. Cassileth is also widely renowned for correcting capsular contracture and her specialized breast lift technique, the Pocket Lift, which provides patients with long-term results and upper pole fullness without implants. Her friendly staff and welcoming Beverly Hills offices make patients and their families feel comfortable and safe.

Bedford Breast Center

In 2015, Dr. Cassileth founded the Bedford Breast Center in Beverly Hills. This state-of-the-art facility specializes in nipple-sparing mastectomy, minimal-incision lumpectomy, mammography, and genetic testing. It's a testament to her passion for providing comprehensive breast healthcare.
