13 Jul Dr. Peled in the California Society of Plastic Surgeons New Member Spotlight
Dr. Peled has been chosen to be profiled in this month’s California Society of Plastic Surgeons New Member Spotlight, with an interview discussing the best thing about being a plastic surgeon, her favorite procedure to perform, what she couldn’t operate without, her first social media check in the morning, her favorite hobby, and the best part of what next weekend will be.
You can read the profile on the California Society of Plastic Surgeons’ site and learn some more about Dr. Anne Peled, the leader in breast cancer surgery, breast reconstruction surgery, and all mastectomy and reconstructive surgeries, including nipple-sparing reconstruction and immediate pre-pectoral implant reconstruction, two procedures that help women make quicker recoveries and wake up looking as good or better than when they underwent the surgery.
CSPS NEW MEMBER SPOTLIGHT
In 2018, the CSPS welcomed 10 New CSPS Active Members. We are excited to highlight our newest members of the CSPS – this week, we are pleased to shine the spotlight on:
Dr. Anne Peled
The best thing about being a Plastic Surgeon is: The challenge and immense satisfaction of doing something truly and often immediately transformative for patients, whether it’s reconstructive or aesthetic surgery. I love the “unveiling” at the initial post-operative visit, when patients get to see their results for the first time- it’s by far one of my favorite parts of being a plastic surgeon.
My favorite procedure to perform is: Nipple-sparing mastectomy and immediate pre-pectoral implant reconstruction- I love being able to offer a procedure where women with breast cancer or at high risk for breast cancer wake up from having mastectomies looking essentially the same, or even better, than they did when they started.
I couldn’t operate without my: Fun socks or hot pink OR glasses. As much fun as it is to have a job where you get to go to work basically in pajamas, on my OR days I like to wear something in bright colors too- my patients often make comments about my socks when I’m in doing their markings before surgery.

The first social media outlet I check every morning is: Instagram. I keep a fairly small number of friends and family and some lifestyle/fitness sites (like Athleta and Self Magazine) that I follow, so I don’t get overwhelmed looking through them. I love starting my day with little photographic glimpses into everyone’s lives mixed in with style inspiration and fitness routines!
My favorite hobby is: Anything that gets me outside being active- running, triathlons, stand-up paddling boarding, hiking. Even 30 minutes helps me clear my head from the day and gets me feeling great for the next one.

The best part of next weekend will be: Taking my family to Legoland (in Carlsbad, CA) – all 3 of my kids (7 year-old son and 4 year-old twin daughters) have been asking me and my husband pretty much every week when we can go back since our last visit there!
