Getting to Know the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group Doctors

Dr. Payman Danielpour, and co-founder Dr. John Layke of the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group started their education at Nassau University Medical Center. That’s where Dr. Layke met the then Beverly Hills native Dr. Payman Danielpour. From there the two worked hard to achieve their medical degrees, and learned just about every advanced surgical technique they could. After gaining their medical training, each of the Beverly Hills doctors decided that they should build on their already strong friendship, and launch a plastic surgery practice. And the rest is history.

Today, you’ll find that Dr. Payman Danielpour, and co-founder Dr. John Layke make every effort to maintain their commitment to the highest level of patient care, and you’ll feel it just as soon as you step foot into their posh 4000 square foot state-of-the-art office, and surgical center in the premier building in Beverly Hills.


The philosophy at the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group includes a constant effort to:

  • Ensure patient comfort, care, and safety
  • Attempt to match surgical goals with realistic patient expectations
  • Use a combined approach: two plastic surgeons for the price of one - in every consultation!

The Beverly Hills MD’s know that the most important factor to every person considering plastic surgery is choosing the right doctor. That’s why they developed a plastic surgery practice that combines science, and skillful artistry to deliver the best possible results. Dr. Danielpour, and co-founder Dr. John Layke want every patient to get a natural result, and they believe in only providing care without compromise, so they go to any length to assure every patient feels comfortable, and confident in their decision to undergo a surgical procedure. At the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group, that includes offering every patient the highest level of accommodations including transportation as needed, and even post-operative nursing care, as well as at-home doctor visits when requested. No other cosmetic surgery office provides all of this, and that’s how you can know that you’ve gone to the right doctors.


Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group Menu Options

Once you have decided on the surgical procedure you want, with the help of a two-fold consultation with Dr. Layke, and co-founder Dr. Danielpour, the rest of your transformation process is simple. But first, you’ll need to choose the right procedure for you. Here is a short excerpt from the menu options at the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group.


Facelift. The visible signs of aging can start to show on your face as early as the age of 30. However, by the age of 50, and up, many people notice signs of aging including these:

  • Sagging in the midface
  • Deep creases below the lower eyelids
  • Deep creases along the nose extending to the corner of the mouth
  • Fat that has fallen or is displaced
  • Loss of muscle tone in the lower face may create jowls
  • Loose skin and excess fatty deposits under the chin and jaw can make even a person of normal weight appear to have a double chin

Also known as rhytidectomy, this type of surgery can correct these, and other signs of aging on the face, and neck. NOTE: This surgery is not intended to change the overall appearance of your face, and it will not be able to halt the natural aging process. Performed surgically, this rejuvenating treatment will slow the appearance of these visible signs of aging, at any age.

At the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group, women, and men can stop the signs of aging in their tracks with a proprietary alternative to a conventional facelift called the, MACS-lift. Created by Dr. Layke, and Dr. Danielpour this exclusive procedure is short for Minimal Access Cranial Suspension. The surgery involves lifting the muscle, and other soft tissue, allowing for reconstruction. Then the doctors will place the new positions in place with dissolvable sutures. MACS-lift procedures deliver a more natural post-surgical result, different from any other type of a facelift.


BOTOX. This term is simply a brand name for what’s known as botulinum toxin – an FDA approved substance for use in both general, and cosmetic medicine. Commonly used to reduce muscle spasms, neuropathic pain, allergy symptoms, and excessive sweating, BOTOX is also used in cosmetic procedures to reduce the appearance of some of the most common signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and deep creases in the face. Today, you can find that BOTOX injections are one of the most commonly requested cosmetic procedures in America.

After years of making expressions, your face can hold on to those lines, and wrinkles become more pronounced. This often results in the appearance of seemingly permanent expression lines. BOTOX injections work inside the muscles beneath facial wrinkles, and relax those muscles to smooth the area in the overlying skin. The results are almost instant, and can last for months for each non-surgical treatment.

Dr. Layke, and co-founder Dr. Danielpour of the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group are also happy to offer BOTOX injections for migraine headaches, excessive underarm sweating, and muscle spasms in the eyes, and neck.


Liposuction. No matter how much you exercise, sometimes the extra pounds just won’t budge. Despite going on a diet, and doing more exercise many people simply NEVER get to see the results they desire. For this reason, a liposuction procedure may help. This elective surgery is able to remove accumulated fatty tissue, in any area of the body including:

Cheeks, chin, and neck
Upper arms
Breast, chest, and back
Abdomen, and waist
Hips, thighs, and buttocks
Inner knee, calves, and ankles


Tummy Tuck. Belly fat is one of the most common trouble areas for people struggling with weight loss. If you have already made lifestyle changes to address excess weight, but still do not see the results you desire in the mirror, it can hurt your self-esteem. For this reason a tummy tuck may be the right procedure for you. Also called abdominoplasty, this surgery includes the removal of unwanted fatty tissue around the abdomen, along with any excess skin, and then the tightening of the abdominal walls – all at the same time!

At the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group, Dr. Layke, and co-founder Dr. Danielpour provide numerous options for a tummy tuck:


Full Tummy Tuck. This is the most popular type of abdominoplasty surgeries. Performed with general anesthesia, the full tummy tuck surgery removes excess/loose skin between the pubic area, and belly button, expanding the skin of the upper abdomen to cover the area left from the removed skin. Liposuction is also performed along with this procedure to sculpt the flanks, or any other area as needed.


Mini Tummy Tuck. During this procedure, skin from the lower abdomen is removed (as to not disturb the upper abdominals). This surgery is commonly combined with liposuction of the upper abdomen, and other surrounding areas as needed. This is commonly used to address skin laxity below the belly button, but does not repair muscle separation.


Extended Tummy Tuck. This is a full tummy tuck but also includes the removal of excess skin on both sides of the abdomen. Ideal for patients who desire to tighten their side, the extended tummy tuck is most common for patients that have successfully lost large amounts of weight.


Tummy Tuck Combination. All tummy tuck procedures at the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group can be performed along with other surgeries to optimize your overall look for complete patient satisfaction. Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group conducts tummy tuck surgeries with state-of-the-art technology. Each of these procedures usually takes about 2 hours, but the extent of fat, and excess skin removal varies from person to person, so the length of your surgery may not be the same as someone else’s.


Single Incision Mommy Makeover (SIMM). Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group is proud to specialize in the Mommy makeover. Dr. Layke, and Dr. Danielpour developed this Single Incision Mommy Makeover (SIMM) technique, so that Mothers can get their best body back after starting a family. This combination procedure is a blend of two of the most popular surgeries: a post-pregnancy breast augmentation, and a tummy tuck. This single operation normally would take (at least) 3 separate incisions. But the doctors at the Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group get it done in one!

Single Incision Mommy Makeover (SIMM) is a revolutionary technique that leaves Mommies happy with their post-pregnancy bodies once again. While each patient is different, and will require a customized surgery, every SIMM delivers the most natural results possible, and all with just ONE scar that is barely even visible. Located at the public line, just below the bikini line the SIMM incision is easy to hide, so your post-pregnancy “Mommy” body looks just as great as it did before kids, (maybe even a little better) and nobody will ever know!

It’s the next best thing to a face lift.


DARK SPOT CORRECTOR. Hyperpigmentation can happen for many reasons. However, one of the most common causes includes the natural aging process. Reduce age spots, sun damage, and other discoloration with the Beverly Hills MD Dark Spot Corrector.
