Johan Brahme, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

I love everything about La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery! Dr. Brahme and Christina are amazing. I will definitely be back and wouldn't ever dream of going anywhere else. My breast augmentation made me a new person. I am so happy I did it.

John Smoot, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

The office and Dr.Smoot are amazing! I feel amazing and it was so easy

Johan Brahme, MD La Jolla , CA

Neck Lift

Made to feel very comfortable. Staff friendly. Onlything more helpful would be t advise patients to have a magnifying glass available the first night if you use glasses for reading (so you can see your phone etc) and to buy this pillow from Amazon. : Side Sleeper Pro Air Pillow Price:$30.35 + $6.35 shipping. It made the whole process not comfortable, but way more bearable. Has a hollow for your ear, and molds to the back of your head.

Rhinoplasty

Friendly, informative, and attentive front office staff and patient coordinator personnel. Kind, caring, and thorough medical staff. I trust Dr. Wheeler. He is dedicated, detailed, and has a calming presence during every appointment. I felt confident that I was in good hands, from initial consultation to the day of my surgery to all my follow up appointments. I even prettier than before my surgery

Breast Reduction

From my first appointment with the Doctor and his wonderful , helpful staff to the surgery and the care and results I can't say enough about the excellent care,results and aftermath care. My breast reduction has given me such a new found freedom. I can swim, do my yoga and aerobics without my breasts handicapping me. My appearance and self confidence are so much better now.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Roark is an exceptional Plastic Surgeon. He was at all times caring, warm and knowledgeable, demonstrating both confidence and humility as it relates to his craft. He possesses a rare combination of character and skill that only magnifies the quality of care he provides.

John Smoot, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

From beginning to end I was blown away with the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff. My consultation was very informative and Dr. Smoot really took the time to answer all my questions. I had my first consult with Dr. Smoot and the other three didn't even come close to impressing me. His staff is very attentive in responding to emails and phone calls. I ended up having 3 consultations with him or his nurse before I made my decision. My results are amazing! Nobody believes me when I say I got implants because they look so natural. I've already recommended him to my friends. My confidence has improved tremendously! Clothing shopping has become much more enjoyable now that shirts flatter my body better. I am constantly getting compliments on how nice my breasts turned out. It was definitely worth it.

Neck Lift

I felt like the office, the doctor, and his assistant were very attentive to my concerns, listening to my fears, and giving me valuable and honest answers to my questions. They were very reassuring! Their explanations, the surgery itself, and the follow up were all done in a highly professional manner. I had heard that the La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre was very good and they truly were! I had been very anxious about even inquiring about any cosmetic surgery, but I am so pleased that I had the procedure done. Now I look years younger than most of my high school classmates. I am very happy with how I look! Being in the dental profession for forty years, I have had very close-up"relationships with my patients, many of whom had had past cosmetic surgeries. Many of the "outcomes" didn't look good...they looked pulled, stretched, and almost looked like burn victims (those with multiple surgeries). I had earlier thought that I would never go through such a procedure! But when I had concerns about my own looks, I very anxiously scheduled a consultation. The rest is history! I feel much younger and confident in my looks! "

Lori Saltz, MD La Jolla , CA

HydraFacial MD Breast Augmentation

The waiting time for the doctor seemed long compared to amount of time for follow-up exam. Love my new boobs!

Lori Saltz, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

Great environment and very caring about patients and your overall experience being smooth and as easy as possible. Feeling more confident about yourself everyday.

Johan Brahme, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. They kept me informed (while I was conscious) of each step in the procedure. They took plenty of time with me and I never felt rushed.

Rhinoplasty

I do like the profile view of my nose, and it does look very natural which was quite a relief to me. My results are what I am truly dissatisfied with. The team and facility was truly great! Dr. Roark seems extremely knowledgeable and very kind, but I feel like I am just not seeing what I want to see. I do know that a rhinoplasty takes time, and is not an immediate fix. It has almost been 3 months though and the swelling has gone down a lot, but I am still disappointed in my results. I tried to voice these concerns, but Dr. Roark and the nurse reassured me that with time it will look better. I am giving it the benefit of the doubt, but my 3 month appointment is coming up and I will voice my honest opinion and hopefully something can be done about it.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Smoot and his staff always make everything so easy. I feel so comfortable and love seeing the familiar faces like Carmen whenever I go in for a follow-up visit. I got the results I wanted.. I've always had a small chest and now I feel more like a woman. Thanks to Dr. Smoot!

Eyelid Surgery

Instructions prior to procedure were clear, post op instruction also clear. Every staff member friendly, and I felt I was in good hands throughout- no worries! It has had a positive effect on my vision as well as my facial appearance.

John Smoot, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

I was very satisfied with my experience with Dr. Smoot and the other clinical practitioners because they were all friendly and made me feel comfortable even right before the surgery. I was very nervous the day of surgery but the nurse I forget her name but she was keeping my mind off surgery and was very kind. Dr. Smoot was very professional and kind as well. I feel more confident wearing clothes I could never wear before, and I also feel more proportionate to my body shape and size.
