  • Biography


    Norma Kassardjian, MD, is a board-certified medical and cosmetic dermatologist with a dermatology degree from Loma Linda University Medical Center in California. Dr. Kassardjian specializes in Mohs micrographic surgery, a technique that allows doctors to remove skin cancers with extreme precision, followed by the cosmetic repair of the surgical wound. She also specializes in Tumescent Liposuction, which allows doctors to penetrate subcutaneous fat with localized anesthesia, preventing blood loss and long recovery times associated with surgeries that require general anesthesia.

    Dr. Kassardjian has been trained by the inventor of the Tumescent Technique, Dr. Jeffrey Klein, and has performed more than 5,000 surgeries to date and teaches Tumescent Liposuction to physicians from around the world. Dr. Kassardjian has been a practicing dermatologist for more than 25 years treating patients at HK Dermatology in San Juan Capistrano, California.

    As a woman, Dr. Kassardjian understands the aesthetic struggles that women face as they age, and enter peri-menopausal stages where their faces and bodies change with time and hormonal fluctuations. In this regard, she prefers using non-invasive techniques such as intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy, fractional lasers, as well as hyaluronic acid and biostimulatory fillers, including fat, to minimize the appearance of fine lines and restore volume that is lost with age.

    She certainly has the experience and an eye for beauty which are necessary to achieve natural and age-appropriate results for facial rejuvenation and body sculpting.

    Dr. Kassardjian possesses the knowledge and expertise to achieve natural-looking results for women of all ages. In addition to her training, Dr. Kassardjian speaks English, Armenian, French, Spanish, and Arabic.

    She is an active member of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American College of Mohs Surgery, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, the Orange County Medical Association, and the Orange County Dermatologic Society.
