Revision Rhinoplasty

My meeting with dr wheeler pre-op, he spent a lot of time with me and took copious notes; I really felt like he wanted to make sure he got it just right. . This was my third rhino- Dr. wheeler understood and executed what needed to be done, unlike prior experiences

John Smoot, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Reduction

I felt very comfortable from the first appt throughout the entire surgery and post-op appts. The team is professional, warm and caring and always wanted to make sure I was mentally and physically prepared, comfortable and safe. My surgery was Nov. 30th, I had zero complications. I feel great physically and mentally. I could not be happier! I can run miles comfortably with 1 jog bra.I have my confidence back after years of feeling self-conscious about my appearance.

Face Lift

Just not 100% happy with the outcome and felt like I shouldn't have to pay to have it fixed. Also the fact that I've referred 5-6 people to the clinical having major surgeries and have received not one thank you much less a referral credit - which apparently the center doesn't have. Frustrating.

Lori Saltz, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

I had a BA with Dr. Saltz two months ago. Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth did a great job helping me decide on a size. Ruth made herself available pre and post-op in case I had additional questions. The day of my surgery the staff was welcoming, they made me feel comfortable and reassured. I am loving my results!

Mommy Makeover

Dr Roark did an amazing job!! I love my body for the first time in 16 yrs (since my first kid). He is obviously a perfectionist because my breast looks perfectly symmetrical and pretty on my body . My tummy and hips looks very sexy, if I had to say so myself!! Staff was super informative and professional! They call me all the time to make sure I am doing ok! Thanks Sarah and Dr Roark !

Breast Reduction

I still need to return to have the doctor revise the incision.

Johan Brahme, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

I've always been confident in my looks and body, however this procedure made me happy about my looks. I am literally happier every day. I honestly can't say enough good things about my experience and results. I felt so comfortable and safe. My healing experience went so smoothly and I credit it all to the support of my docter and nurses.Dr. Brahme is an artist, I could not have dreamt of better results.

Neck Lift

I have no complaints about my surgeon or the staff. I underestimated the recovery but that is no fault of the surgeon or his staff. I am very pleased with the results.

Breast Reduction

The single best thing is of course the result. I am overall highly satisfied because Dr. Wheeler is a master of his craft and because he and the entire staff (especially Jalayne) are thoroughly competent and professional yet at the same time friendly and know how to make clients comfortable.

John Smoot, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Smoot went beyond my expectations and I am so happy with my outcome. He was thorough, realistic and attentive to my needs. I highly recommend Dr. Smoot! Dr. Smoot and the nurses were always there for any questions or concerns I had. I felt very comfortable during the whole process.

Eyelid Surgery

The professionalism and politeness of Dr. Roark and staff made me feel confident and welcomed. No more baggy eyes!!

John Smoot, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Implant Revision

The results were exactly what I had expected...I am very happy! The attention to all details, the courteous staff and the excellent medical professionals made my procedure a fantastic experience.

John Smoot, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Implant Revision

the time between the consultation to the pre op appointment was a few months so it seemed like details were forgotten about the implants I had in before the revision. The say of the surgery the Dr didn't remember that my implants were over the muscle. I think that is something you would and should really know and remember about a patient you are about to operate on

Johan Brahme, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

I wasn't nervous at all because I was 100% sure they had me as a #1 priority even after the surgery and that there was a trauma nurse in the room during my surgery. I had searched around for a surgery center and doctor for motnhs before deciding on La Jolla Surgery Center. I honestly wouldn't have chosen any where that I felt uncomfortable in any way and this place really gave me a good vibe and hospitality. I loved that they called every day for a week after my surgery to make sure I was okay!

Breast Lift

Dr Roark is awesome!! I'm so happy with my breast lift. He was very understanding and human in his approach. Providing a lot of details at each time we met. I felt very confident of the results and in very good hands. His nurse Sarah is the best! she was very attentionate, checked on me before and post surgery, gave me loads of information and tips for the recovery. The entire team at La Jolla Clinic is very good, responsive and client focused. Thanks again for helping me feeling so much better about myself and looking so good!

Johan Brahme, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

Dr Brahms, Christina and the rest of the staff were extremely professional and delightful to work with prior to and after my procedure. They made the entire procedure less stressful and answered all questions I had. I knew I was in great hands during the consultation and recommend Dr Brahms to all my friends! I am definitely more confident with my body after the procedure. I feel more proportioned and love how natural they look and feel. Would do it all over again!

Breast Implant Revision

After 13 years , I needed a renovation, I was a little worried about recovery and scars... it's been over 3 months and I recovered quick. . Everyone in the facility wwrestling very professional. I can't say enough about Dr Wheeler and the staff. Everyone was very warm and polite.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr Roark did my initial breast augmentation in 1989 and they lasted till now and needed to be replaced due to rupture of one side. My breasts have always look natural and they still do even after new implants. I was very concerned about my breasts looking natural and they still look great!

Face Lift

I am so much more confident because now I look as young on the outside as I feel on the inside. After four months all of the reservations I had about the results are resolved. I am very happy with how I look now and would highly recommend Dr Wheeler. My recovery took longer than I thought it would and I was very anxious about it for about three months but now I can say that it was definitely all worth it. Thank you Dr Wheeler and the staff.

Other

I am very happy to have my labia plasty done. Although it's not exactly how I expected it still makes a significant difference in my life. During my first follow up through my second and third, the tape on my breasts caused severe irritation and delayed healing significantly. One nurse said left it and pat dry , one removed it and said only wash with dove, one said never use dove, one said use dial. I felt as if I got extremely mixed information and that my doctor did not care about the severity of the unsealed areas of my lift scars, they took forever to close up and because they repeatedly stuck to tape, gauze and my bra I have scared badly. My labia plastic I know the results differ and the doctors do what they can that's medically safe, however I was told it would looked closed all they way , it does not and I still have excess uneven tissue on one side. Over all this has been a pretty disappointing outcome mostly myou breasts I expected much more .
