Meet Annika Meyer, MD
Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Granite Bay, CA
As a specialist in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Meyer is deeply knowledgeable about the most refined surgical techniques for the face. She is passionate about achieving natural-looking, beautiful results for her patients. When she saw how a minor change to the face can lead to a dramatic boost in a patient’s confidence, she knew that facial surgery was her calling!
Dr. Meyer learns all there is to know about her patients and what brought them into the office, making sure to understand their lifestyle before making procedure recommendations. Under Dr. Meyer’s care, patients feel understood and cared for.
With an intuitive understanding of facial physiology, Dr. Meyer is an expert in addressing the aging face, where she achieves gorgeous, refined results for her cosmetic patients of all ages and genders. She is a detail-oriented surgeon who finds it equally fulfilling to perform a rhinoplasty as to create a smooth “nonsurgical facelift” with artful injections of Botox and filler. Whether you’re considering a full facelift or you want an expert to administer your nonsurgical injectables, Dr. Meyer can make recommendations to help you feel like your best, most amazing self.

Dr. Meyer Outside of the Operating Room
Growing up in the Bay Area, Dr. Meyer was always a reader. She still loves to read, especially the classics—she’s currently reading through all of Jane Austen’s novels. She is also a lifelong visual artist with a love for the natural world and all things beautiful, so it’s no surprise that she was inspired to specialize in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the face!
Dr. Meyer is beyond happy to be back in California (and just a short drive to the Bay Area) after surgical residencies and fellowships across the country. She and her fiancé are enjoying the wineries of Sonoma and Napa, and they look forward to camping, hiking, and snowboarding in the winter.
When she’s not in the operating room, you can find Dr. Meyer training for her next half marathon, hitting golf balls, or at home watching a movie with her fiancé, a graphic designer, and their cat Pom Pom, a hypoallergenic Russian Siberian. They adopted Pom Pom at the beginning of quarantine, which Dr. Meyer says was her “best decision ever.” We think her best decision ever was joining us at Granite Bay Cosmetic Surgery!
