Meet Dr. Culbertson
Dr. Eric Culbertson is double board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. Specializing in cosmetic surgery of the face and body, Dr. Culbertson completed training specifically in aesthetic surgery during his fellowship at the University of Texas Southwestern, which is only offered to one applicant per year and has repeatedly been ranked the top-ranked plastic surgery program in the country. There, he was mentored by some of the most highly regarded aesthetic plastic surgeons in the world. Dr. Culbertson moved to Sonoma County from Texas with his wife and two boys in 2017.
Skills and Specialities
During his plastic surgery training and aesthetic fellowship, Dr. Culbertson learned modern and advanced techniques in both surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures, including the latest in face lifts, rhinoplasties, breast augmentation, drainless abdominoplasty, liposuction and other body contouring techniques including fat grafting and BBLs. He is also trained in laser skin resurfacing, IPL, hair transplantation, fillers and botulinum toxins. Dr. Culbertson recognizes that each patient is unique in regard to his or her anatomy, desires, and expectations. He personally strives to achieve natural yet undeniable results that bolster one’s self esteem and reinforce, rather than change, one’s identity. In particular, Dr. Culbertson feels that each procedure must be tailored to the individual. Often, a marriage of approaches—such as the addition of liposuction or fat grafting—will achieve the best result over one technique alone. Dr. Culbertson will work with you in partnership, from establishing a plan for achieving your goals during the initial consultation to guiding you through the recovery process and ensuring that our expectations are met.
