Dr. Mackenzie performs most of his procedures on-site at the Surgical Arts Surgical Center, which is furnished with state-of-the-art equipment and staffed by certified anesthesiologists from The Anesthesia Medical Group of Santa Barbara.

Mackenzie only uses board certified anesthesiologists for his patients during their surgical procedures. Patients can relax knowing that they are in the hands of specialists who will ensure a safe environment.
After your cosmetic surgery is complete, we go above and beyond traditional postoperative care. We are one of the few practices to use alternative methods as well. For years, Dr. Mackenzie used pain pumps to help decrease pain after surgery. He also became the first physician in Santa Barbara to use Exparel, a sustained release pain medication, and was involved with some of the clinical research on this product. Dr. Mackenzie offers Exparel as an option for his patients, which is especially helpful for some of the more painful procedures, particularly breast augmentation and abdominoplasty. There is an additional charge for this medication.
