A Facial Plastic Surgeon

As a board-certified Facial Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Moran is committed to the art and science of the head and neck exclusively. She pursues knowledge of the most current trends in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and tries to balance that with a conservative and safe approach to the care she delivers.

Dr. Moran attends at least two major national conferences each year, several courses, and monthly conferences at Stanford. As a former voluntary clinical faculty member at Stanford, she is still involved with mentoring residents, fellows and medical students. She gives many seminars on the aging process, discussing how to reverse and prevent some of the changes that occur. She has also been featured in a number of articles related to facial plastic surgery.

From a Family of Physicians

Dr. Moran comes from a family of seven physicians. She knew from an early age that she wanted to be a surgeon. She was admitted to an accelerated six-year premed/medical school program at the University of Michigan, in Ann Arbor, and received her MD degree from University of Michigan Medical School. She then completed five years of head and neck surgery training in Boston at the Tufts and Boston Universities combined program. From there she completed an additional fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery training. She is double board certified in both facial plastic and reconstructive surgery and head and neck surgery. She is the Senior Adviser to the Face to Face program, which provides complimentary facial reconstruction to victims of domestic violence, as well as to patients in third world countries. She has made three trips to Vietnam with the Face to Face organization

In recognition of her commitment to excellence in medical care, Dr. Moran was appointed by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to the Medical Board of California, Division of Licensing, a position she was reappointed to several years ago. “The assurance of safe and reliable medical services is a vital component of California’s quality of life,” said Governor Schwarzenegger. “Each of these highly qualified individuals shares my commitment to public health and will work diligently to provide careful oversight of California’s health care professionals," he said.

Dr. Moran also sits on the boards of American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.


Dr. Moran's practice encompasses a broad range of face and neck cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. She is an attending surgeon at multiple community hospitals and is engaged in the mentoring of medical students and residents in both Los Angeles and Orange County. Hospital affiliations include El Camino Hospital and Hospital Drive Surgery Center, in Mountain View.

Dr. Moran is a nationally renowned expert in Botox and filler injections (such as Juvederm and Restylane). Locally, she is known for her natural appearing surgical results. Her patients value the time she takes to educate them about their options without pressure.
