Using Artistry to Achieve Harmonious Outcomes
The staff at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre lovingly refer to Dr. Michael Roark as Dr. “GQ” because of his fashion sense and eye for detail. These traits reflect the artistry that distinguishes a plastic surgeon. Dr. Roark achieves natural outcomes for his patients because he believes that surgical outcomes must be in harmony with the patient’s facial features or body proportions. In addition to his facial surgery skills, he is known for his aesthetic eye when he performs surgery on breasts, abdomens, thighs, and arms.

Dr. Roark has a subspecialty for men who want cosmetic surgery. His areas of expertise include facial rejuvenation, rhinoplasty, dermal fillers, liposuction, and the treatment of gynecomastia (male breast reduction). He is keenly aware of the necessity to adjust his techniques to obtain results that are typically masculine in appearance. He carefully avoids the over-corrected, more feminine results that concern male patients.
“Every staff person was very professional, from the front office, to each nurse that assisted Dr. Roark. Dr. Roark is extremely calm, caring, and efficient. I have recommended your office to several friends. I’m very happy with my results and feel I can call at any time with minor questions. Thank you for a great experience.” –Happy Patient via RealPatientRatings®
On a personal note, Dr. Roark shares a happy home with his wife Margaret, the love of his life, and a family, which includes a lively Yorkshire terrier, “Mila Bea.” They love to ski and spend time spoiling grandchildren.
