Dr Karen Horton is experienced in a wide range of cosmetic procedures, cementing her as one of the best plastic surgeons in San Francisco. She is an internationally board-certified surgeon, being a member of both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the Royal College of Surgeons in Canada. Her core focus is both cosmetic and reconstructive work for women.
Dr Horton trained in the United States and Canada. She firstly completed a Bachelor of Science with Honors, before completing a Master of Science in Ontario, Canada. After this, Dr Horton graduated from the Medical School at the University of Toronto and then received five years’ worth of training in plastic surgery. She then moved to the Bay Area to commence her dream of opening a private practice.
Dr Horton’s father was also a surgeon, so her career choice was primarily inspired by his work. Dr Horton offers some of the most innovative services, in which she used microsurgical techniques to reconstruct breast tissue by using the body’s own tissue. Indeed, this minimizes the chances of long-term scarring and the need to sacrifice parts of the body’s major muscles. She also developed a unique service called the “Mommy Makeover”, which is designed for women who wish to rejuvenate their bodies after having children.

“Dr. Horton is a very caring and skilled surgeon. What else can I say I recommend her to anyone that needs her expertise . She is a ray of sunshine and her staff is too. I am only 7 days post -op, and can’t believe how happy I am with her work. She is honest, and truly cares about her patients. She gives you her cell #, and encourages you to text her anytime with any questions or concerns. I’ve had plastic surgery years ago, but decided to go with Dr. Horton this time and I couldn’t be happier. My friends are taking her # and getting in line!” – Shelly Valerio

Dr. Horton answered every single question I had, followed up with me when I needed it, and gave me all of the information and tools I needed to feel confident in my procedure. I felt entirely supported and cared for by her and her staff every step of the way. Not only has Dr. Horton changed my life with her craft, she’s changed my perception on how extraordinary a doctor-patient relationship can be.” – Alyssa Yell
