Since 1996 Kagan Institute has been built on TRUST, EXPERIENCE, INNOVATION and RESULTS.
You as a patient must put your trust into the hands of a surgeon who has your best intentions in mind. If Dr. Kagan does not think you need a procedure or that a procedure will not give you a significant improvement he will tell you. In fact, Dr. Kagan routinely turns away about 25% of patients. Dr. Kagan will always give you an honest opinion about your condition and the best options for personalized treatment. All of our surgery patients get Dr. Kagan's personal cell phone number so that they can get a hold of him ASAP if needed - any day, any time. We look at the relationship with every patient as a mutually beneficial long-term commitment.
Dr. Kagan's experience, reputation and commitment to excellence have earned him national recognition as one of the top eye and aesthetic surgeons in the United States. He is only one of a few physicians in the USA who is a Board Certified Ophthalmologist and has extra subspecialty training in corneal and refractive surgery as well as ophthalmic plastic and reconstructive surgery. That is why Dr. Kagan is one of a few physicians in LA who can offer a full spectrum of advanced vision correction and facial plastic and aesthetic surgery.
Dr. Kagan is committed to exceeding every patient's expectation through state of the art technology and innovation. Every two to three months Dr. Kagan travels nationally and internationally to professional meetings and teaches courses on refractive and aesthetic surgery to keep on the cutting edge of modern technologies so as to bring the most up to date and the most innovative procedures to all the patients.
Dr. Kagan's comprehensive and personalized approach to your pre operative and postoperative care allows providing each patient with a customized treatment plan and exceptional results every time.

Kagan Institute has been built on Dr. Kagan's reputation. The biggest compliment you can give our practice is to refer your friends and family, a referral is for someone you care about to someone who you trust. This is greatly appreciated by all of us.
Thinking of LASIK and reducing your dependency on glasses and contact lenses? Wouldn't it be great to wake up in the morning and not have to worry about those annoying contacts or glasses?
ICLs work with the eye to correct high levels of nearsightedness and farsightedness (greater than 6 dioptores) and is great for people who wants a procedure beyond what LASIK and PRK can offer. The procedure is performed in an outpatient setting and, typically, one eye at a time is corrected.
Extensive research and development preceded the introduction of Visian ICL. It has been successfully implanted in over 55,000 eyes worldwide. The satisfaction rate among patients is extremely high - above 99% (FDA US Clinical Trial). Visian ICL provides excellent and stable outcomes.
A cataract is a natural aging change of the eye that happens to everyone sooner or later. Most people develop cataracts sometime in their late 50's and 60's.It is a clouding of the natural crystalline lens inside the eye. No drops or medical treatments can prevent a cataract. Since the clouding of the lens occurs slowly most people don't even notice that their vision has been severely affected. Most cataracts decrease vision by making it difficult for people to read, watch television, drive, especially at night, some say that they feel like they are looking through a cloudy window or a fog.
More than 20.5 million Americans are currently affected by cataracts. Now new technology provides alternatives for thick glasses! Dr. Kagan routinely extracts clouded lenses and replaces them with new synthetic ones called intraocular lenses, or IOLs.

There are so many fillers available to reduce and eliminate lines and wrinkles on your face and plump up your cheeks, chin and lips. But which one is best for you? It is extremely important to utilize the right filler in the right area of your face for best results.
