In The Media

Dr. Larrabee has been most recognized for his surgical skills and innovative techniques. His three surgical books for surgeons have been widely used and are currently going into new and updated editions. Surgical Anatomy of the Face describes the scientific basis for much of his aging face and rhinoplasty surgery.

Principles of Facial Reconstruction is widely used by surgeons around the globe and introduced his innovative “Note Flap” and “Triangular Fixation Suture.” The Art and Craft of Facial Rejuvenation describes his current techniques for both surgical and non-surgical facial rejuvenation, focusing on eyelid and facelift procedures.


Dr. Larrabee founded JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery and served as its Editor in Chief for over 15 years. It is now the preeminent facial plastic surgery journal in the world. He has stepped down as its Editor in Chief to focus more on his children and the Larrabee Center for Plastic Surgery in both its Seattle and London sites. Click here to read more.

The commitment of Joe Wong to the children of China was essential to the many cleft missions he organized. Please see my memorial comments to his life of public service.

Dr. Larrabee has been recognized by the editors of Town and Country over the years. Click here to view his 2014 profile, or click here to view his 1987 profile.

Important Notice

Our Aesthetic Center is set for a soft reopening Monday, May 18th! 

We are thrilled to announce the soft opening of our aesthetic center on May 18th, 2020 in compliance with Governor Jay Inslee’s proclamation (20-05-20-24) of elective cosmetic medical procedures being restricted up until this date. We will not be resuming full activity of The Larrabee Center right away. 

Suite 385 Covid-19 Updates:

 Below you will find actions we have taken to ensure that you are protected and that we maintain Suite 385 as a Non-Covid Care (NCC) Zone:

Please be advised with the soft opening, our hours, providers, appointment availability and staff will be reduced to avoid unnecessary exposure. We fully understand that this will result in some inconvenience in the short term, but it is essential we do everything in our power to ensure the safety of our patient, and our staff.

We ask that if you are calling to reschedule an appointment from March, April, or early May, please be patient until our front desk coordinators reach out to you as we have limited staff working diligently for reopening and the phone lines are overwhelmed with calls.

Washington State Department of Health (DOH), World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) share information about COVID-19 at:


The health and well-being of our patients and staff are so important to us. Our providers and support staff appreciate all your love and support for them during this time. We thank you and look forward to seeing you soon!
