Welcome to Plastic Surgery Institute

The Plastic Surgery Institute of San Francisco is composed of five Board Certified Plastic Surgeons who specialize in cosmetic, plastic, and reconstructive surgery. Our surgeons are pleased to welcome you to our official site for our practice serving San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, the North, South, and East Bay and beyond.


The Plastic Surgery Institute of San Francisco serves as an operating facility specializing in cosmetic surgery procedures such as a facelift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), fore head lift, endoscopic brow lift, chin and cheek implants, nose job (rhinoplasty), ear pinning (otoplasty), scar revision, breast augmentation, reconstruction, or reduction, tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction (lipo), arm lifts, and thigh lifts.


In addition to the surgical practice at the Plastic Surgery Institute of San Francisco that focuses on procedures such as facelifts, lipo, rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, tummy tucks, and so forth, we also have a less-invasive practice dedicated to Botox, injectable fillers, facials, peels, and microdermabrasions. With a certified aesthetician on staff, patients are able to have relaxing and rejuvenating facials while using our in-house product Face Forward by Dr. John Owsley which leaves them feeling refreshed.


Our plastic surgeons, Dr. Darrell Brooks, Dr. Gregory Buncke, Dr. Rudolf Buntic, Dr. John Owsley, and Dr. Bauback Safa, have a combined total of over 75 years of experience in Cosmetic or Aesthetic, Reconstructive, and Microsurgery. Co-directed by Dr. Gregory Buncke and Dr. John Owsley, the Plastic Surgery Institute of San Francisco is partnered with The Buncke Clinic of San Francisco and San Mateo, an Institute established in 1970 and recognized worldwide for its specialty of Reconstructive and Microsurgery of the Hand. With extensive experience in microsurgery of the hand, reconstructive surgery, and facial and body plastic surgery, our plastic surgeons are experts in the field of aesthetic or cosmetic procedures. Our surgeons have diverse backgrounds that have collectively led them to revolutionize plastic surgery through the development of different techniques and approaches to surgical procedures that have been adapted worldwide.


Based primarily on experience, our plastic surgeon’s backgrounds set them above the rest – and upon initially meeting with one of our Doctor’s, it becomes clear why they are in such high demand in the cosmetic and reconstructive field. Their topnotch skill, precision, attention to detail, and humble demeanor set every patient at ease, aiding in the sometimes difficult decision to move forward with cosmetic surgery. Whether the patient is interested in a facelift, a rhinoplasty (nose job), or a breast augmentation, we have specialized surgeons that can offer natural-looking, optimal results.


Our San Francisco office recognizes the decision to consider cosmetic plastic surgery as an elective choice. Many influences contribute to the consideration and decision-making process to undergo plastic surgery procedures such as a desire to align how you look with how you feel, to correct a physical characteristic that may hinder you from your personal or professional goals, or to achieve more than may be possible with even the most conscientious health and fitness programs. Selecting your plastic surgeon should be made with the utmost care as it is an important decision.


While much of the cosmetic and plastic practice resides in San Francisco, our surgeons also participate in Interplast and other programs that offer the opportunity to perform free, life-changing operations on adults and children with clefts, burns, and hand injuries in underserved areas of Africa, Asia, and Latin America.


The mission of the Plastic Surgery Institute of San Francisco is to provide our patients with exceptional and natural-looking results, the utmost personal care, the knowledge and information necessary to make an educated decision, and the best surgical experience available to achieve individual aesthetic goals. Whether our patients come locally from San Francisco, Marin, San Jose, San Mateo, Oakland, other cities in the Bay Area, or from further cities, our position is to make the cosmetic surgery procedure as satisfactory and feasible as possible. We understand that undergoing plastic surgery is a life-changing decision which is why patient care and knowledge is our highest priority.
