Address signs of aging in a natural-looking and attractive way. Dr. Kaweski leverages her extensive experience in craniofacial procedures to improve aesthetics and restore volume, tone, and smoothness to features. The focus of her facelift is rejuvenation rather than dramatic change, with a plastic surgery procedure designed to help you appear years younger.

Mommy Makeover

After having children, you may want to rejuvenate areas of your body that pregnancy, breastfeeding, and aging have affected. You may also have other aesthetic goals: physical enhancements that you’ve put off for years and are ready to achieve for yourself. Known as Dr. Mommy Makeover™, Dr. Susan Kaweski supports San Diego and La Mesa patients with procedures that renew their body and improve their life.

Tummy Tuck

Get a firmer, more defined belly with a single surgical procedure. Tummy tuck eliminates excess skin and fat from your mid-section left over after major weight change, accomplishing what diet and exercise often will not. This plastic surgery procedure is particularly effective for San Diego and La Mesa women following pregnancy.
