Author, Educator, and Public Speaker

Lasers in Aesthetic Surgery

Among Dr. Lacombe’s accomplishments is the co-authoring and editing of two comprehensive textbooks. Lasers in Aesthetic Surgery was written for aspiring facial plastic surgeons and professional laser technicians. Cosmetic Injection Techniques is a text and video guide to neurotoxins and fillers.  

Prior to opening offices in Sonoma County, Dr. Lacombe served on the faculty at UCLA in the Head and Neck Surgery division. There, he supervised the training of future plastic surgeons. In addition, his ongoing research in the science of facial plastic surgery takes him to many national, regional, and local conferences as well as speaking engagements where he instructs other surgeons.

FDA Clinical Researcher

Because he is involved at the research level for laser and facial techniques for skin care, as well as FDA clinical research trials for new injectables and fillers, he is able to bring state-of-the-art advances from around the country to his patients in Northern California, often before they are available at other plastic surgery practices. His last three Clinical Studies included Allergan’s Juvederm Voluma and Juvederm Volux, as well as a currently unnamed (still in Clinical Trials) injectable for Galderma.

Hear what one patient has to say after over 15 years of care:

I have known Dr. Victor Lacombe since 2007 when I started working with an aesthetic company. He was my customer and, of course, very soon after, he became my personal doctor for cosmetic procedures. Dr. Lacombe has a wonderful bedside manner, is very kind, and is very easy to talk to . . .  

As a patient, I can confidently say that he always does a thorough evaluation of my face and always recommends the best products for facial rejuvenation. I am always happy with the results and keep coming back for more . . .  I routinely recommend him to all my friends for all cosmetic procedures, including facelifts and injectables. They all love him and continue to drive two hours from the Bay Area to see him for all their procedures, too.
