Seattle Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Robert Grenley MD

Seattle board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Robert Grenley knew early in life that he would be a physician. He loved to paint and sculpt because, as he says, “I’ve always loved working with my hands to make something beautiful.” And, he has also been just as interested in the geometric and mathematical principles of balance, harmony and symmetry.

I am very much a perfectionist, the doctor explains. “I try to leave nothing to chance. I am absolutely obsessive about every detail during surgery and equally dedicated to the post-operative care of my patients.


Dr. Grenley has been in private practice in Seattle since 1985. He specializes in cosmetic surgery of the face and body, including body contouring and cosmetic and reconstructive surgery of the breast. He has a great deal of experience in breast augmentation, facial rejuvenation, liposuction and body lifts (especially in the massive-weight-loss patient), and breast surgery including the repair of deformities from previous surgeries.
