Credentials: Dr. Thomas Jeneby is a board-certified plastic surgeon in San Antonio, Texas. He has been in practice since 2002 and has held the position as President of the San Antonio Society of Plastic Surgeons since 2016. In recognition of his performance as one of the most competent cosmetic surgeons in San Antonio, Dr. Jeneby was honored by being appointed a Diplomat of the American Board of Plastic Surgery in 2003. He currently holds state medical board licenses in Texas, Arkansas, California, Pennsylvania, and Florida. He obtained his medical degree from the Medical College of Virginia (Virginia Commonwealth University) in Richmond, Virginia.

Enough with the formalities, Dr. Jeneby is an eccentric, joke-telling, long-haired, outspoken, attention-grabbing clothes- and cowboy boot-wearing, son of Turkish immigrants. He does many of his cosmetic surgeries live on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, with very small pieces of tape covering up anything that would make the videos “inappropriate.” He curses, he jokes, and he’s a hell of a surgeon.

AND he has a compassionate heart. Each month, Dr. Jeneby donates funding and surgical expertise to the Family Violence Prevention Services, Inc. in San Antonio, in the form of free reconstructive surgery to battered women, and to The Wounded Warrior Project to help injured and disfigured soldiers. A portion of the proceeds from his book will go toward these charities.

Dr. Jeneby has been featured in Newsweek, Cosmopolitan, S.A. Scene in the “Best Plastic Surgeons” issue, as well as multiple appearances on local and national shows such as Inside Edition.
