Board-certified plastic surgeon Christa Clark, MD, FACS, announces the addition of plastic surgeon Marc Orlando, MD, to Calif.-based Granite Bay Cosmetic Surgery, which she founded in 2016.

“We searched far and wide for a talented, skilled plastic surgeon with the sophisticated aesthetic and approachable personality that our patients are looking for. Orlando fit the bill perfectly. He is a meticulous plastic surgeon with an unwavering commitment to high standards,” says Clark. “His aesthetic outcomes are fantastic, and he comes to us with numerous glowing patient testimonials. The team and I are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Orlando.”

Orlando completed residency training in both general surgery and plastic and reconstructive surgery. He went on to specialize in cosmetic medicine with an aesthetic surgery fellowship at University of Southern California, Marina Plastic Surgery, and Rox Center in Beverly Hills and Newport Beach. The fellowship was endorsed by The Aesthetic Society, a leading international organization of skilled aesthetic plastic surgeons.

“Fellowship training provided the mentorship and time needed to refine my skills and focus my practice entirely on cosmetic surgery,” says Orlando. “I offer my patients the most modern thinking in the use of cosmetic medical procedures. The goal is to deliver incredibly natural looking results by tailoring procedures to each patient: everything rests on individualization of the surgical plan. Integration of non-surgical methodologies can bring another level of nuance. Whichever methods may be used, I want my patients to feel simply wonderful and completely rejuvenated.”

Orlando has exclusively performed aesthetic procedures now for over six years. At Granite Bay Cosmetic Surgery, he offers a range of procedures for the breast and body. “I derive genuine satisfaction from understanding a patient’s vision, helping them see it through, and watching them as they live their lives with greater energy supported by a newfound confidence,” he says. “Joining Granite Bay Cosmetic Surgery will afford me the opportunity to change many lives for the better while performing the procedures I enjoy most.”

Orlando specializes in procedures for the breast and body and has gained a reputation for performing a Brazilian butt lift (BBL) procedure with subtle, natural-looking outcomes. Made famous by Hollywood celebrities, the BBL is a fat transfer procedure that involves liposuction of the waist, hips, or thighs, followed by transfer of that fat into the buttocks for an increase in projection and volume. 

While the procedure is famously used to create exaggerated buttocks in contrast with a very small waistline, Orlando says that a Brazilian butt lift can also be employed to achieve more moderate yet curvaceous body contouring results.

“Most patients who schedule a BBL consultation are not looking for an unnaturally round, projected buttock appearance,” Orlando says. “Many women simply lack a proportionate buttock projection thanks to genetics, aging, or the effects of childbearing. I perform many BBLs to correct lost volume and create a feminine, healthy appearance.”
