5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction Revision

Great experience but not perfect results! - San Diego, CA

Dr Kaweski is absolutely a wonderful doctor. I have never met a doctor with better bedside manner. I really believe she cares about me and wether i'm happy with my procedure. I had Revision Breast surgery August 29 2016. I had 25 year old deflated implants that were sitting really close to my arm pits with a rupture in my left breast. My results on my ruptured side did not turn out right...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

47 Yrs Old 4 Kids. La Mesa, CA

Awesome doctor! Had the surgery so far I'm happy. Still have a little swelling. But extremely happy.

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Almost 50 with Kids in College; Long over Due to Get my Body Back - La Mesa, CA

Dr Susan Kaweski came highly recommended to me by a friend. Before my initial consultation, I did some research. Her on-line write ups give accolades as to her credentials and surgical experience; I think it's her personal touch that makes the experience even better. From the first consultation, it is very clear that she and her staff care about the individual person – I now totally understood why my friend was so passionate about recommending her. I was immediately put at ease and was not self-conscious pointing out and showing all the flaws I've kept hidden for years under baggy clothes. There was no judgment only caring support and experienced surgical suggestions. Dr Kaweski took pictures and used digital imaging to discuss and plan my Mommy Makeover. Her surgical skills were nothing less than amazing. This is not a 'cookie cutter' kind of service. Personalized attention is given to each patient. For my breast augmentation I didn't pick a breast implant size from a chart or bra size - careful consideration was given to my body structure, my desire for a particular breast shape and she offered her advice based on her past patient experiences. She was spot on! I couldn't have been happier with my surgery results! By breasts look very natural - only perkier even without a bra ;) The suture placement for my tummy tuck was nothing short of spectacular, it is so low that I can wear the skimpiest of clothing (not that I would at my age) and they still wouldn't show. She removed a lot of extra skin and somehow managed to make it all look great. The follow up treatment regarding my scars is fantastic and they are so minimal and I'm only a few months into my recovery. Dr. Kaweski's work even received compliments from my OBBYN and she's seen a lot of tummy tucks and breast augmentations. Yes – Dr Kaweski is an amazingly gifted surgeon and each surgery is a masterpiece but it's her human touch that keeps her clients devoted to her and sending her their family and friends. If you're considering a plastic surgery procedure that Dr Susan Kaweski offers, you owe it to yourself to have a personal consultation so you can experience first-hand her awesome bedside manner.

5 out of 5 stars Dysport

Dysport is SOOO MUCH Better Than Botox - La Mesa, CA

Dr. Kaweski is incredibly nice, polite and friendly. She explains the whole process and answers any questions or concerns with detailed explanations. Also, neither the Doctor or her staff try to persuade you into any sort of commitment, they simply state the facts and allow you to make your own decisions. She is also very gentle with the Dysport/Botox injections, hardly noticeable. Would highly recommend her.

Just Had my Consult for Lipo - La Mesa, CA

I'm really nervous about getting lipo. But after gaining and losing weight my body isn't like it used to.. my body bounced back after I had my 1stchild. I assumed it would do the same after my 2nd... I was so wrong.. my youngest just turned three so I'm really need to change my body for me!!! Would love to get lipo and a ba/bl. Would love to hear anyone else's experiences of the both. Thank you =)
