Dr. Susan Kaweski, of San Diego, CA is a leading expert on Mommy Makeovers in the US, being the rare combination of a mother, double-board-certified plastic surgeon and, unlike most of her plastic surgeon peers, a woman. The ASPS and American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) report that under one-tenth of our country’s roughly 7,000 board-certified plastic surgeons are female, while 90% of our over two million aesthetic procedures are performed on women.

Dr. Kaweski was elected Woman of the Year by the American Biographical Institute in 2000, an Honoree for Notable American Woman in 2002, was a past president of the San Diego Plastic Surgery Society and has served as Plastic Surgery Advisor for the Surgeon General of the Navy. Currently, she is the chief of plastic surgery at Sharp Memorial Hospital and a senior staff member at three other San Diego hospitals, as well as the Chairman of Technology Assessment committee for the American Society of Plastic Surgery.
