About Tiffany Grunwald
A board certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Grunwald, has been helping patients achieve their desired aesthetic since opening her Santa Monica private practice in 2007. Regarded worldwide as a specialist in both cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery, Dr. Grunwald has worked extensively with breast cancer survivors to restore their natural breast shape following mastectomy. After college, Dr. Grunwald had the unique opportunity to travel as part of a surgical team to Central and South America to perform pediatric open heart surgery. There, she realized the profound difference that a surgical intervention can make, and decided to become a surgeon. She was drawn to plastic surgery because of the close relationship that develops between doctor and patient, and her role in analyzing and solving problems that directly impact individuals. That approach continues to guide her work as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon. By taking the time to get to know each of her patients, Dr. Grunwald determines their aesthetic and goals, and tailors a solution specifically to their needs, opting for a nonsurgical approach whenever possible. No two patients are alike, so no two patients should receive the same breast or face.
