About Dr Stout

Dr Warren Stout

Dr. Warren C. Stout, M.D., one of the founders of the USC Doheny Eye Institute Refractive Laser Medical Center, is an internationally recognized Cosmetic Laser Specialist and a rare fellowship-trained Oculoplastic surgeon.

“It is my philosophy that plastic surgery should enhance, as oppose to alter, the natural beauty of the patient. I view my cosmetic surgery as restorative artwork. By simply striving to restore people’s eyes to their former youthful appearances, I never cause them to appear unnatural or overdone.

Many patients come into my office nervous, both about the procedure itself and the eventual outcome. As a doctor, I strive not only to reassure patients with my experience and ability, but also to know me personally and to understand my natural approach. It is important to me to earn my patient’s trust so that they can be comfortable with me during the entire procedure.”

– Dr. Warren C. Stout

Dr. Stout appreciates that just as no two faces are alike, no two eyes are alike. He recognizes the unique demands of age, gender, lifestyle, and ethnicity. The eyelid area is extremely delicate, and having an Oculofacial specialist perform your blepharoplasty allows for a safe procedure with natural-looking results.

Considered a pioneer in laser technology, Dr. Stout uses a laser to not only increase precision but also to decrease bruising and downtime, creating a result that is both subtle and natural.

In addition to performing laser cosmetic procedures, Dr. Stout uses his training and knowledge about the anatomy and aesthetics of the face for:

  • Restorative purposes: removing and reconstructing areas affected by tumors, as well as repairing congenital problems, trauma, and other physicians’ cosmetic surgery mishaps.
  • Non-invasive cosmetic procedures: Restylane®, Juvederm™, Botox® Cosmetic, Fraxel® Laser Treatments, IPL/Photofacial™ Treatments and Eyes by Thermage®.
