Dr. Shumway Interview - Chat           


Dr. Shumway Interview

1. I have been a Cosmetic Surgeon for Twenty Years.
2. My Father and other Shumway relatives are surgeons. I chose Cosmetic Surgery because it is the most "exacting" of all surgical specialties.......I am a perfectionist!
3. TUBA (all upper case letters) means TransUmbilical Breast Augmentation and it is incredibly futuristic. TUBA is amazing Cosmetic Surgery. Imagine: breast implants with NO scars! I have performed literally thousands of successful TUBA operations. I am the KING of TUBA and I have taught many other surgeons how to perform this fantastic procedure.
4. Rhinoplasty, Face Lifts, Aesthetic Laser Skin Resurfacing, Liposuction, Abdominoplasty, Silicone Gel Breast Augmentations, Blepharoplasty, Otoplasty, Brow Lifts, etc. I am a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, a Diplomate of the American Board of Facial Plastic &Reconstructive Surgery, and a Diplomate of the American Board of Otolaryngology (Head & Neck Surgery). I have also had many years of training in General & Thoracic Surgery and Cosmetic Dermatological & Aesthetic LASER Surgery. I have performed many years of medical & surgical research at ASU, University of Arizona, Duke and UCLA.
5. NO. Because I do so many breast augmentation cases. You become super good at activities that you perform over & over & over again. Talent, hard work & practice lead to success.
6.Do not go to just anyone because that makes absolutely no sense at all. Consult with True Cosmetic Surgeons who are actual Diplomates of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery. This board is the ONLY surgical board that is dedicated solely to the specialty of Cosmetic Surgery and only Cosmetic Surgery.
7. My surgeon Father: Ord L. Shumway, MD, FACS. My Duke surgery mentor: David C.Sabiston, Jr., MD, FACS. My fellowship director & UCLA Professor: Walter E. Berman, MD. My relative & Stanford cardiac surgeon: Norman Shumway, MD, FACS.
8. My philosophy regarding Cosmetic Surgery is to treat my patients like "family." In other words, I take excellent care of all my patients and always go the extra mile for them. This was the way I was trained at Duke, UCLA, Arizona and UCSD.
9. Yes, for unrealistic expectations and for health issues. Cosmetic Surgery is elective and all patients must be screened by me before they are allowed to have surgery performed on them at SHUMWAY COSMETIC SURGERY.
10. Thirty percent of my case load is revision surgery from other physicians. However, this large number does not necessarily mean that all other surgeons are performing inferior work. It is wise to remember that patient compliance and good patient/surgeon communication are also key elements in obtaining excellent surgical outcomes. Furthermore, since we all live in glass houses, it is not wise to throw rocks...................what goes around, comes around!
11. I have spent many, many years developing & perfecting the Art of Cosmetic Surgery. For sure, continuing medical education is the key to surgical progression, i.e., there is a better way of doing Cosmetic Surgery and then a better way after that, and so forth. I believe in teaching other doctors how to perform Cosmetic Surgery because the teacher always gains so much more than even his students. As a Trustee of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and as a Trustee of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, I feel that our most precious gift to others is our time and service we give to our patients.

Thank you for this opportunity to express just a few of my feeling regarding Cosmetic Surgery.

Most Sincerely,

Robert A. Shumway, MD, FACS
Immediate Past-President, California Academy of Cosmetic Surgery
Chairman, American Society of Liposuction Surgery
Past-President, American Society of Cosmetic Breast Surgery
Fellow & Faculty, American Society for Laser Medicine & Surgery
Past-Surgical Attending, UCLA & UCSD
