Breast Augmentation

Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth made me feel at ease from my consultation and still make me feel great at my follow-up appointments. Throughout my experience, I always felt informed, and Dr. Saltz was always honest with me from the beginning helping me to manage expectations - I believe this is why I am 100% happy with my results. I would definitely come to LJCSC again for any future procedures.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Saltz did a great job on my breast augmentation! She was easy to talk to and gave me what i wanted! Would recommed her to anybody! Her office nurse as well is easy talk to and very helpful and funny! Love them all!!

Breast Lift

Dr. Saltz and Ruth were fantastic with information provided and listening to my concerns. I also greatly appreciated the bound booklet that I was given before my procedure that provided me with EVERYTHING I needed or may need or want before, during, and after my procedure.

Breast Augmentation

I had been researching breast augmentation for years before I chose Dr. saltz. It's a big decision so I wanted to make sure I had the perfect Doctor. I had a friend who had her breasts done only a few months earlier, and she highly recommended Dr. saltz. I currently live in hawaii, so in order to have my surgery in La Jolla, I had to plan an entire trip to California and back. I was in contact with the staff for 2 months before my surgery date and they were incredibly helpful answering any and all questions no matter how silly. When I went in for my pre op, I wasn't 100% sure what I wanted size wise and once again, the nurses and doctor were so incredibly helpful. I had met with a few doctors in the past and none were as friendly as Dr. saltz's staff. The procedure was a breeze, and even recovery was no where near as bad as I thought it would be. Just like before surgery, the staff was incredibly helpful, and jumped to answer all of my incredibly paranoid questions. I never thought plastic surgery would be so easy, or dare I say... Fun?

Breast Augmentation

I am overall highly satisfied with my experience with Dr. Saltz and her staff. She and Ruth were absolutely amazing. I never once felt uncomfortable or at all doubtful at any point in my process. They were perfect enough to schedule my surgery around my schedule. I wanted the surgery before I left California and to my luck I was scheduled 10 days later. 10! My surgery was over and done with before I could even realize I had new breasts. I adore my outcome and am highly satisfied and will recommend Dr. Saltz and Ruth to all my California friends. Actually... I would even recommend her to my non-California friends, the travel is worth the outcome! Thanks Dr. Saltz and Ruth, I LOVE MY RESULTS!

Breast Augmentation

Overall experience was great. Staff was warm caring and supportive. Staff was always available to answer any questions of concern. Professional staff that I'd come back to over and over.

Breast Lift

Dr. Saltz not only did good work but listened carefully to make sure I was pleased with the outcome.

Breast Reduction

After researching several Plastic Surgeons, I decided that Dr. Saltz was the best candidate to perform my breast reduction surgery. On my initial visit, I met with Nurse Ruth first, who I connected with immediately. Her sense of humor and receiving attitude drew me in instantly. After having a blast talking about breast reduction with Nurse Ruth, I met with Dr. Saltz, who was attentive and very conscientious. It was clear from the start that she was meticulous and a perfectionist as she examined and measured my breasts. She asked me about the size breasts I wanted. When I told her I wanted a B cup, she kindly recommended not doing something quite so drastic. She told me it was understandable to want extreme breast reduction when dealing with large breasts, but to consider a different size for my body type. Instead, she recommended going from a DD to a C and told me to think about it. I took her advice, and I could not be happier with the outcome of my breast size. Size C was the perfect choice! Nurse Ruth and Dr. Salt spent a lot of time educating me on my procedure. We talked about the different methods/techniques available and their results, what to expect the day of surgery, the days to follow as well as the next 18 months to follow. I was given a booklet with all the information as well as detailed explanations regarding the prescriptions I would need before and after my procedure. I believe I went into the venture with my eyes wide open and with reasonable expectations. Two-weeks after surgery I was already enjoying the results of my surgery and had a mini fashion show in my bedroom closet. I couldn't believe how enjoyable wearing a basic cotton tank could be. I wasn't spilling out of my clothing anymore. I even had a wedding to attend and Nurse Ruth went above and beyond to call in a prescription for me even though she was not scheduled to work at the office on the day I called. It meant so much to me to be able to attend my best friend's wedding and not worry about pain. Thank you so much Nurse Ruth. You went the distance for me, and I am lucky to have had you through my surgery process. You are tops!!!Overall, I would recommend La Jolla Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Centre. Dr. Saltz's education, knowledge, and skillful hands exceeded my expectations. I don't think there is a surgeon in Southern California who is comparable to her. She is so precise and thorough and knows how to shape a breast. The results of her breast reduction procedures on patients far exceed the many before/after pictures I have seen at other surgery centers. Quite frankly, there are no adequate words to describe just how happy I am with the results of my breast reduction. Thank you Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth. You are a dynamic duo.

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Salt and her entire staff were very attentive, reassuring and calming. Her nurse, Ruth was available via text around the clock after my procedure and made me feel comfortable and at ease with all of my questions so and concerns. The entire process has been fantastic.

Breast Lift

I am very pleased with the outcome of my breast lift. Dr. Saltz really worked magic and couldn't be more happy.
