Friday January 8th First show of 2021:

The Pulse welcomed Dr. Katerina Gallus from Restore SD Plastic Surgery in La Jolla.

We love having Dr. Katerina Gallus on the show and she is such a resource to our viewers.

Today we talk about the impact Covid-19 has had on elective surgeries and Dr. Gallus also addresses concerns people have about the Moderna vaccine and a previous history of injectables.

We then dive into the new micro needling trend and the new technology she is offering at her practice.

Dr. Gallus is educating us on Radio Frequency Microneedling!

Restore SD is excited to introduce the next generation of radiofrequency microneedling. The Virtue RF by Cartessa effectively targets unwanted scars and wrinkles while it simultaneously tightens the skin with minimal downtime. This technology offers an exciting alternative and supplement to surgery and traditional lasers.

One of the major advantages of the Virtue RF is that it is colorblind – unlike lasers that have a specific target – the Virtue RF delivers energy below the epidermis to tighten skin without the risk of pigmentation problems. The Virtue RF is safe for all skin types and offers a clear benefit to those who are unable to have a more aggressive laser or chemical peels due to their skin color.

Because radiofrequency microneedling can deliver targeted energy it can accomplish what an intense laser or peel would without the downtime. Optimal results usually require multiple treatments but are fully customizable and work well with other treatment options such as laser, plasma pen, topical skin-rejuvenating serums.

About Dr. Katerina Gallus:

Dr. Katerina Gallus is an experienced and accomplished board-certified female plastic surgeon who enjoys positively impacting patients’ lives through modern plastic surgery. After a successful career as a Navy plastic surgeon she founded Restore SD Plastic Surgery, where she had created a welcoming space that offers skin care, injectables, laser treatments, aesthetician services, and of course, surgery.

Dedicated to serving others, she began her education with a Bachelor of Science from Duke University while on academic and ROTC scholarships. She pursued her dream of becoming a doctor at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland where she met and married her husband. A Naval Academy graduate himself, the newly married couple set out for a career in Navy Medicine after completing medical school. After internship she served as a general practitioner with the Marines and traveled to many locations including Dubai, Singapore and Thailand in support of their mission.

She returned to complete General Surgery Residency at the Naval Medical Center San Diego. Although achieving board certification in general surgery was a milestone, Dr. Gallus went on to pursue her dream of training in the field of Plastic Surgery. She completed her Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Residency at Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Indiana.

In 2006, Dr. Gallus returned to the Naval Medical Center San Diego double boarded in Plastic Surgery and General Surgery. She and her husband started their family in between multiple deployments. She deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom at a forward base in Afghanistan, providing immediate surgical trauma support to our wounded soldiers and sailors. Upon return from deployment in 2011 she had their third daughter and settled into senior leadership roles at the Navy Medical Center.

She was selected in 2017 as the Vice-Chair of the Women’s Plastic Surgery committee of the ASPS. A role model, she also represents the southwest region on the ASPS Ethics Committee.
