Where Art Meets Surgery

Meet Dr. Edward Terino

As a graduate of Amherst College and Yale University, Dr. Edward Terino has been a pioneer in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery for over 20 years. He specializes in custom facial contouring using cheek, chin, jaw, and suborbital implants, and he was the innovating mind behind using collagen to sculpt the face. It is Dr. Terino’s belief that beauty and attractiveness can be created by adding volume to the face to either enhance the natural facial contour or restore age-related changes in the soft tissues of the face. It is with Dr. Terino’s specialized training and techniques that art meets surgery.


If there is one thing that an outstanding plastic surgeon can never have enough of, it is experience. You can be sure that as an American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Terino is the definition of an experienced surgeon. He has been performing all types of cosmetic surgery for over 20 years, including:



Dr. Terino is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and has helped mold the next generation of doctors and surgeons. He has served on the teaching staff of UCLA, USC, and Stanford University, and Dr. Terino has also authored two best-selling medical textbooks, The Art of Facial Contouring and Sculpting Faces in Three Dimensions. Dr. Terino is the developer of many of today’s surgical techniques, including the “Somme Lift” for upper and mid-face vertical lifting and the “IN STYLE Lift” for tightening the lower face and neck. These techniques, as well as the numerous others he developed to provide solutions for flat cheeks, small jawlines, and weak facial contours, are considered state-of-the-art throughout the world.


Staff and Facility

Dr. Terino’s goal is to ensure that each patient has the safest, friendliest, and highest quality experience possible. As there has been a shift in the plastic surgery field towards quick, non-invasive treatments, Dr. Terino has been busier than ever. To fulfill that demand and continue to provide each patient with outstanding comfort and care, Dr. Terino expanded his offices. Each patient can experience a happy and peaceful consultation, treatment, and recovery in his newly remodeled office. To ensure patient safety, all extensive procedures requiring anesthesia are performed at a California-accredited surgery center only 100 yards away from his office in Agoura Hills. Patients love Dr. Terino’s experience, professionalism, and accommodations so much that he was voted “Best Plastic Surgeon” in Los Angeles in 2012 and 2013 and in Ventura County eight years in a row.


A True Humanitarian      

Dr. Terino’s experience extends far beyond the walls of his Agoura Hills office. Since he became a plastic surgeon, Dr. Terino has been lending his skills and services to those in dire need. He has been a volunteer surgeon for the Hope Ship, Albert Schweitzer hospital in Haiti and for missionary groups throughout Central and South America. His goal is to restore happy, normal lives for maimed or deformed children. Back home in California, his surgical clinics in Westlake Village, Agoura Hills, and Thousand Oaks have served the reconstructive goals of those in need for over 20 years. Dr. Terino received the U.S. News’ “Humanitarian of the Year” award for his work with Childhelp, through which he helped care for abused and battered children.


A Head Above the Rest

Over 50 percent of Dr. Terino’s clients are patients traveling from other states and countries. It is Dr. Terino’s most sincere belief that the true essence of beauty lies in the basic foundation created by the shape, size, and volume of the facial bones. He uses only the latest, most unique anatomic design for facial implants, which provide each patient with a customized facial contour. As the pioneer of three-dimensional facial contouring, Dr. Terino has the longest record for achieving beautiful, artfully crafted results to correct hollow, tired, and aged appearances.


If you are considering facial rejuvenation, body contouring, or breast enhancement, Dr. Terino shouldn’t just be your first choice, he should be your only choice. It is through his hands that art meets plastic surgery to achieve outstanding results time and time again. It’s time to stop waiting and time to start acting.
