Robert A. Shumway, M.D.

Recognizing each patient has his or her own individual requirements and desires for cosmetic surgery, Dr. Robert A. Shumway has dedicated more than 20 years of his career to improving the lives of others as a board-certified facial plastic and cosmetic surgeon. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and is the founder of his private surgical practice, Shumway Cosmetic Surgery in La Jolla, CA.

Dr. Shumway is well-known for performing TUBA (transumbilical breast augmentation), which is a unique way of inserting saline breast implants through the navel (belly button) without making incisions on the breast. Only a handful of surgeons in this country are skilled at this special augmentation technique. Dr. Shumway was the first surgeon to perform the TUBA in Europe in the summer of 2018. He's also famous for facelifts, CO2 laser resurfacing, rhinoplasty, tummy tucks, and so much more. If you are looking for self-improvement and cosmetic surgery (a major overhaul or minimally invasive), he and his professional team will accommodate your needs.
