Well, I think Dr Kearney is a gifted plastic surgeon as well as an honest one. He will not do any kind of treatment on anyone who isn't really a good candidate. He takes the time to get to understand you, your life-style and what it is you are looking for in results; he makes no false promises but gives you realistic expectations. He takes pride in his work and it shows; it's not about him trying to sign you up for every procedure under the sun, just what procedures will accomplish your personal goal.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Mommy makeover-hard but worth it...

My whole life I always had a flat stomach and nice breasts. Then came child birth. After the birth of my first child my body was different but not bad. Then I got pregnant with twins and well that was the end of "not bad". I didn't recognize my body anymore and my confidence was affected more than ever. I didn't even want my husband to see me. It was not a good feeling so, I started my research and my consult visits. Each one I didn't get very much information until I met Dr. Robert Kearney. He spent over an hour with me going over things I didn't even know I needed to know. I was really impressed with the examples he went over with me regarding the silicone verses saline. He explained that I had enough breast tissue that I could go either way. He also checked my abdominal muscles to see how much space was between them. No other surgeon I spoke to did either. He then explained that I really needed to strengthen those muscles so when they were sewn together they wouldn't tear. I remember leaving that appointment surprised with all the information I received. I was really impressed and made my surgery appointment the next day. Now I am 5 weeks post OP and I could not be happier. I was nervous about the breast implants the most because I didn't know would turn out. I never thought I would ever need implants. I always had nice, large breasts until after having kids. I was worried I may not like them, people would notice, how they would feel and how big or little they would be. Well, I went with saline implants 330 cc each side and I absolutely LOVE them. They look and feel amazing! They look so natural. When I tell people they are really surprised. I love the size too! I couldn't be happier. My tummy and my belly button (which is a clear giveaway of a tummy tuck) look great already even with the the slight swelling. I am amazed at how flat my stomach looks. I know it is just going to get better. Dr. Robert Kearney is amazing and a true artist. I am so grateful for what he has done for me. I also want to mention his nurse Dior is really sweet and takes good care of you before and after surgery. You will be very happy if you choose Dr. Robert Kearney.

Dr Kearny was extremely helpful during the initial consultation and answered any and all my questions. It was very easy to choose him over the previous doctor i had met months prior. He is very down to earth and realistic.

42 Year Old Male: Upper Blepharoplasty, Facial Fat Grafting, and Chin Liposuction - San Diego, CA

My Doctor: Dr. Robert Kearney La Jolla, CA From my first time meeting Dr. Kearney I really liked how he interacted with me and the time he took to answer my questions. He wanted to know what I wanted done and why. Together we decided which procedures would help me attain my goals. The team in the office was also I huge factor in my decision. Both Melissa and Katie are friendly and professional. If I had a question in between visits, I would get a quick response. If they didn’t know the answer, they would put Dr. Kearney on the phone! How many doctors do that while running a very busy practice? Everyone who took care of me during the day of my surgery was amazing too. After meeting the nurse (Becky) and anesthesiologist, I was totally comfortable during the surgery. It was comforting to know that the surgery was performed on the Scripps Memorial Hospital campus. The best part of picking Dr. Kearney was knowing he was there AFTER my surgery. The teams follow up has been great. Today alone, I had two concerns and after speaking with Melissa and Katie, Dr. Kearney called me back. Not within 24 hours, but within two hours of my call. I am less than a week out from surgery and I am totally confident that Dr. Kearney was the right doctor for me.

A True Artist -- the Absolute Best - San Diego, CA

Dr. Kearney doesn't have that many reviews online, which is surprising because he is, in my opinion, the best in San Diego. He was referred to me by word of mouth by a woman who has the best, most natural looking breasts i've seen. I was sold! A few things I like about him-- he is not after your money. He will only do something if he thinks you will look good. He has a lot of integrity and is very no-nonsense. I think he's a genuis and true artist about what he does and I trusted him completely. I went from consult to surgery in a week and I look and feel so amazing just one week post op, I COULD NOT be happier. I got my breasts and chin done and both look perfect-- natural and stunning. The staff there is incredibly friendly and the operating room staff are amazing as well. There is another guy in SD very well known for his boob jobs (polsi?) and I was considering him but a lot of the pictures did not look natural to me and I was scared he was going to give me a "porn star" look. Glad I went with Kearney-- I can not recommend him highly enough!!!

NOT-a-Mommy Makeover! Breast Lift + 450 High Profile Implants + Tummy Tuck = Hotness! - San Diego, CA

I couldn't be happier with my doctor, my results, or my experience. I'd heard great things about Dr Kearney before I went in, and wow, were they right! He spent so much time with me, helping me understand my options and what to expect, I had no question that he was the right choice. There's a huge misconception about fake breasts that CC size is the defining factor in whether your new breasts will look like bimbo bazongas or nice natural knockers, (please note the intended alliteration.) The fact is that there are several factors that go into determining the appropriate size for each person, that are much more relevant than CC size. More than anything, I trusted that he wouldn't leave me looking like a B-team stripper in a one-horse town. I've recommended two friends who've used his services already, and they feel the same. Do yourself a favor and schedule a consultation - you'd be doing yourself a disservice not to. (Tell him that Andrea R sent you and he'll confirm that I was one of the most...a-hem...vocal patients he's ever had. Tell Katy and Melissa at the front desk too...they'll tell you that I had more questions than a two-year-old in the "why?" phase.
