Off the Clock with Dr. Petti
|I enjoy working out with weights to keep my muscles toned and my body strong. Surgery is so physical; you have to be in great shape and very limber. Breast surgery and liposuction can be demanding on the upper body, arms and back, so I work with a personal trainer to focus on these areas. I feel very young, and I am quite flexible … ready for the next challenge in or outside the OR. Bring it on!||I recommend that you and your friends “like” my Facebook page (facebook.com/drpetti) and look for the fun things we share with our patients. Facebook is fun, as I can talk and share philosophies, humor, health issues and other trends with my patients and friends. Here is Julz Coda and me sharing our love of TIZO™—a fantastic tinted sunscreen with a mineral base! Who would think we would still need lots of TIZO™ for our 90º weather this fall? But … we do!|
“My work is custom and nothing less.”
Before & After
| I specialize in breast augmentation surgery. The majority of my breast augmentation patients need surgery to “fix” hard, encapsulated, painful, distorted and ruptured implants from their previous breast augmentation surgeries. I am skilled in techniques to remove and creatively re-contour the breasts so they look natural, full and as symmetrical as possible. The OR nurses and I work so hard on these cases, and we stick to it until we get an appealing, natural result for each patient. My work is custom and nothing less.|

A bold big-wave surfer with a knack for shaping, storytelling and swearing, Greg Noll is a surfing icon. During the late ‘50s and the 1960s, he was on the forefront of the growing big-wave movement. He’s credited with being the first to ride the massive walls of water at Waimea Bay in 1957 and a 35-foot wave at Makaha in 1969—which, at the time, was considered to be the largest ever ridden. Also a businessman, his Hermosa Beach-based Greg Noll Surfboards was one of the top surfboard shapers and manufacturers during the mid-20th century. Greg serves as a living reminder of the South Bay’s surfing pedigree—a region that was, at one point, the focal point of surfing culture for the entire world. And Greg was right in the thick of it.
