Meet Dr. Ted Fisher
As young man, Dr. Fisher followed in his father’s footsteps and joined the Air Force, and attended the United States Air Force Academy. He went on to complete his undergraduate studies at Howard University, then was selected to attend the highly coveted military medical academy, the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences to complete his medical education. While a member of the US Air Force, Dr. Fisher worked aboard helicopters as a rescue flight surgeon, saving the lives of downed airmen and ship personnel. He was recently awarded the Hero’s Medal from the Imperial County Board of Supervisors for saving the life of an 18 year old aboard a United Airlines flight. Dr. Fisher spent 23 years working in level three trauma centers as an emergency room and urgent care physician in both California and Texas. With his experience in the emergency room and time spent in the military, Dr. Fisher developed a confidence under pressure that can only be earned through years of hard work and dedication to his craft. After a successful career in emergency medicine, his passion for art and aesthetic surgery led him to a practice in cosmetic and vein surgery here in the Imperial Valley.
He came to the Imperial valley to serve its patients in 2016. He completed a fellowship in vein surgery with Dr Norman Baron at Desert Vein Clinic. He began training in cosmetic surgery under the auspices of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS) at St Louis University in St Louis, Missouri in 2017. Based in Brawley, for the past several years, Dr Fisher has delivered both vein and cosmetic surgical services to the patients of Imperial County. He has evaluated and successfully treated thousands of patients with vein problems and wounds that do not heal. In his aesthetic practice, he understands that, first and foremost, emotion is the foundation on which the need for cosmetic change is based for each and every patient.
He connects with that emotion and uses it as his motivation to achieve beautiful results using minimally invasive surgery, and non-surgical cosmetic surgical techniques; after all, feeling better about oneself is the motivation for most patients to have a cosmetic procedure. After studying with Dr Jeffrey Klein, the inventor of tumescent liposuction, his expertise and focus is in liposuction of the arms, stomach, back, and thighs in both men and women. In order to define the patient’s new contours with liposculpture, he brought to the Valley cutting-edge techniques taught to him by Christopher Khorsandi, MD using InMode for tightening of the overlying skin with FaceTite, BodyTite, and AccuTite.
The pie`ce de résistance in his liposculpture technique, was achieved through his studies with renown facial plastic surgeon and sculptor, Peter Schmidt, DO. This gave Dr Fisher the artistic three- dimensional reference, as well as those skills that the sculptor of Venus de Milo may have used, to see to it that his work meets the high standards that his liposculpture patients seek. He also performs facial, neck, and declote’ rejuvenation with radiofrequency microneedling, and platelet rich plasma injections for hair re- growth and rejuvenation. He also has an active Botox practice, as well as the only painless lip augmentation technique in Imperial County and Mexicali. His favorite procedure is the lip lift which results in the display of the confident female smile. He is AACS trained in fat transfer to the face, lips, and breasts for a natural breast augmentation, and scar removal with injection of adipose derived stem cells to recreate normal youthful skin contours. Dr Fisher is board eligible by the American Board of Laser Surgery, and American Board of Anti-aging & Regenerative Medicine.
“Antes de venir a hacerme el procedimiento tenia mucho dolor en el talón, y ya que me hicieron el procedimiento no siento mas dolor en el talón cuando piso, me siento muy bien.”
