Dr. Jonathan Kaplan
Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, a board certified plastic surgeon originally from Alexandria, LA is proud to call San Francisco home. After completing his plastic surgery fellowship at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic where he was trained by the same team that performed the first US face transplant, he practiced in Baton Rouge, Louisiana for six years. Also during this first 6 years of practice, Dr. Kaplan noticed that patients were coming to consultations without an appreciation for the different costs associated with plastic surgery. He found that most patients couldn’t find an estimate for plastic surgery on the internet and when they would call the doctor’s office, they would hear the same explanation, that the doctor can’t give estimates over the phone since surgical needs are different for everyone. While it is true that everyone is unique and have unique needs, there’s nothing wrong with giving an estimate online so the patient can know if surgery is out of their budget.
