5 out of 5 stars Breast Fat Transfer

37 Year Old with 36B Fat Transfer to Breast

This procedure is relatively new and I did not really understand much about it. Dr Seare took the time to explain the procedure in great detail so I was comfortable and confident in his abilities. He gave me a very realistic opinion on what my results would be from the fat transfer procedure. The hyperbaric chamber treatment costs extra but this treatment will help retain better results and faster healing. He is a pioneer in this procedure. He is a plastic surgeon AND board certified cosmetologist and did my procedure himself. He truly cares about his patients and worked with me to do the procedures that would me closest to the results I really wanted.

Liposculpture with Fat Transfer - Carlsbad, CA

Dr Seare has an excellent bedside manner. You can tell he really cares. He does this to help people improve self esteem, which can improve quality of life. He's direct and honest, and tries to work with any budget.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

55 Years Old and Hopeful to Reduce Pear Shape. Carlsbad, CA

So far, Dr. Seare has been the consummate professional. He is extremely dedicated to his craft. He has worked hard to educate me with respect to realistic expectations for my body and age. Now that it is 13 days post op, and I am healing and getting a glimpse of the results, I can attest to Dr. Seare's skill and artistry. To date, I am very happy with the results of all of the procedures performed, full thigh lipo (360 degree, hip to knee) and fat transfer to my face and breasts. I expect I will be thrilled in 3 months when the more permanent results are visible. It was an incredible experience to be conscious and awake during surgery. The team kept me informed of each step of the process and we often discussed details regarding why a particular technique was used. I am so grateful to have been able to witness the the tremendous level of skill and excitement Dr. Seare brings to his leading edge lipo techniques, as well as his dedication and the tireless 10 hour effort he put forth to give me the absolute BEST possible result. In my opinion, Dr. Seare is a true healer, a masterful artisan, a learned scientist, and a wonderful human being. I am very thankful I selected him as my physician.

5 out of 5 stars Mini Tummy Tuck

Par Excellence experience

I traveled from Utah to California to have a mommy makeover: mini-tummy tuck with umbilicoplasty and round-the-world liposuction, by the inimitable Dr. Seare. Dr. Seare and his competent team at Clinique Sculpture delivered a par excellence experience and beyond-my-expectation results. The "awake anesthesia" made the surgery, dare I say, "fun." The immediate follow-up hyperbaric chamber...

Active 37 Year Old Female Liposculpture Front and Back of Arms

Dr Seare and his staff are amazing - they were available anytime I had questions or concerns both pre and post surgery. He took his time explaining the procedure and results to make sure I had realistic expectations in regards to all aspects of my surgery. Dr Seare does not charge by the hour, he charges by the section and will take as much time as necessary to remove all of the fat he is able to regardless of how long it takes to complete. He went back over areas in my arms after I thought he was done because he saw some spots that needed more time. He is truly an artist!

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

26 Year Old Male Wanted Gut Gone - Oceanside, CA

He was awesome and was able to answer any questions I had. He also gave me questions to ask the other Plastic Surgeons during the different consults I had scheduled. He Also took the extra effort and came in on the 4th of July to remove drains after I was unable to have the removed the day prior. I also like that he took the time to see if a patient who had just finished the same procedure I was having would consent to allowing me to see his results. Seeing his results helped my nerves a lot. I really enjoyed the world class care I received at Clinique liposculpture.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Fat Transfer

Fat Transfer to Breasts, Face, Bootie, and Vag - Carlsbad, CA

Dr. Seare was caring and meticulous. From the consultation all the way to post op care he never wavered in his dedication and craft.
