Dedicated to building warm, open relationships with her patients, Dr. Jennifer Keagle is among the most
credentialed of all Los Angeles plastic surgeons — outstanding among the few who are double board-certified, but
also as one of the few women plastic surgeons in the area.
In selecting your aesthetic surgeon, you are wise to seek a balance between compassion and expertise, and Dr.
Keagle's unique qualifications are compelling:
One of the most credentialed of all plastic surgeons in the Los Angeles area
One of the few double-board-certified surgeons in the area
One of only a handful of plastic surgeons with 10 years of postgraduate training
A diplomate of the American Board of Surgery & Plastic Surgery
One of only a few women working as plastic surgeons in Los Angeles
One of the select few women to complete a UCLA Craniofacial Fellowship focused on the deep intricacies
underlying surgical work on the face
Selected by her peers as one of Pasadena Magazine's Top Doctors (2009)
Named Executive Board Member of the California Society of Plastic Surgeons (2011/2012)
Elected to the Executive Medical Board at California Hospital Medical Center (2012/13)
Appointed Assistant Clinical Professor at UCLA Medical School (2013)
Dr. Keagle's connection to Southern California actually began in Chicago, where she earned her undergraduate
and medical degrees at Northwestern University — and met her husband, a Los Angeles native.
From there, she began ten years of postgraduate training, including residencies in both General Surgery and
Plastic Surgery, at the prestigious University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).
While at UCSF, Dr. Keagle studied the basic science and biology behind scar and wound healing in a two-year
research fellowship funded by the National Institutes of Health. The scene then changed to Westwood, where she
was selected for the Craniofacial Fellowship at the University of California, Los Angeles, dedicated to helping
children and adults with cleft lip and palate deformities.
The UCLA fellowship gave Dr. Keagle uncommonly precise knowledge of how the facial appearance is affected by
surgical procedures. Working under the tutelage of Dr. Henry Kawamoto, she was only the third woman among
more than two-dozen fellows in the program’s history to gain this intensive training and experience operating on
the facial bones, soft tissue and skin.
Following her work at UCLA, Dr. Keagle became an Assistant Professor at the University of Washington in Seattle,
where she performed surgeries, taught fellows, residents and medical students, and received a Seattle Children’s
Hospital grant for basic science research.
Then in 2008, she and her family moved back to Southern California to be closer to family.
As a working mother of two...
Dr. Keagle understands the needs of professional parents and is eager to spend time with you to listen to your
desires, understand your needs and customize a surgical plan just for you.
She also appreciates the demands on your time and knows that a swift return to your everyday life requires
particular attention to detail. Today, she is part of the Downtown Plastic Surgery team at Good Samaritan Hospital,
in partnership with Dr. Jeffrey Rosenberg, also board-certified in Plastic Surgery and an esteemed member of the
plastic surgery community. Together, they carry on a tradition of 50 years of premier plastic surgery in Downtown
Los Angeles serving patients from across LA, including DTLA, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park, Eagle Rock,
Highland Park and Mt. Washington.
Dr. Keagle also spends several days a month working at the Cleft Palate Clinic at White Memorial Hospital, where
she performs face and jaw surgeries on children with cleft lip, palate and other congenital deformities.
