Breast Augmentation

Dr. Saltz, Ruth, DJ, and everyone else at LJCSC was very helpful and understanding with what I wanted to achieve. I always felt very comfortable throughout my encounter with LJCSC and Ruth did an outstanding job explaining thoroughly and answering any questions I had 24/7. Ruth seriously made me feel so comfortable and prepared me both before/after my first ever surgery. I am very thankful for Ruth because boy was I nervous! I had done my research so going into it I knew Dr. Saltz was the best of the best but I had no idea just how great she really is at her job. She might be God...if not, she's close to it!!! Dr. Saltz and Ruth are the ultimate power team! Dr. Saltz truly is a miracle worker and I will be forever grateful for her. She changed my life in such a positive way it is difficult to put into words. I don't have the perfect body or perfect this or that but she gave me the piece of the puzzle I have felt like I had never had before- true self love and confidence- and it shows! I'm a better person overall thanks to Dr. Saltz. I never imagined having beautiful boobs would help me feel more confident, assertive, and empowered like I feel now. I feel like I am finally the woman that I was meant to be and I owe it all to Dr. Saltz. I'm forever grateful! THANK YOU!!!

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Saltz did a fantastic job! I was in and out quickly and the recovery has been painless. She has answered all of my questions and followed up with me promptly. After my breast augmentation I have experienced a surge of confidence. I feel comfortable in my own skin now.

Well informed, and ecstatic with the results Dr. Saltz and nurse Ruth were the nicest!


I can't even type how satisfied I was. The service superb I would do a commercial on how fab they are at ljcsc Customer service aka VIP service it's unreal how fast & eager they are to provide you with that five star service

Breast Augmentation

Although complications with communication between office staff and procedure readiness the overall attentiveness of staff post-operation and dealing with some minor infections was above and beyond. My nurse and doctor were available by phone/text and made sure I was taken care of and made themselves available in my time of stress. Physical results are great, however I hope to have liposuction area fixed or atleast my questions/concerns about it addressed a 2nd post op next week Care team of Nurse Ruth and Dr Saltz went above and beyond to reassure me emotionally and made themselves available when I had concerns post-op healing. Their support truly made the difference in this experience.


Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth were wonderful. They made the entire process seamless and comfortable, and were there to answer any and all questions I had. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering cosmetic surgery!

Breast Augmentation

Everyone at Dr. Saltz's office was incredibly warm, inviting and knowledgeable. I was nervous going in to my consult and not even sure I wanted to do a breast augmentation. Once the consult was over, I was ready to book it! They answered all of my questions and listened to what I wanted instead of trying to push a specific size or look onto me. The surgery went perfectly and it's now been about 3 months and I am loving my new boobs!

Dr. Saltz and her team were amazing. They took into consideration my concerns and addressed all the questions I had regarding the procedure. No detail was missed and every part of the procedure was explained to me. I felt informed and very safe going into the surgery. Recovery steps were very plainly described as well. The results were simply what I was hoping for and even better! The shape is beautiful.

Breast Implant Removal

Breast Augmentation

Everything from start to finish was met with high customer service, and the end result is everything I wanted and more. I am so happy with the results and how respectful and professional the whole experience was. I have so much more confidence, and I feel like this was the body I was meant to have!

Tummy Tuck

This is the second surgery with Dr Saltz. My first being a breast augmentation 12 yeas ago. I still remember the surgery experience and still have a great result many years and several kids later. I decided to go back to her for a tummy tuck and again I was not let down. Dr Saltz and Nurse Ruth were very upfront with me on expectations, results and risks. There was no pressure to set up the surgery, which made me feel comfortable with deciding to proceed rather than the feeling of being sold into it. The pre-op appointments were informative and again I left mentally prepared. Surgery day Dr Saltz was there to go over everything we decided on again. She definitely put any nerves to ease. Post surgery, Nurse Ruth came to my house to check in me and answer any questions I had. I could not believe that kind of patient care! As recovery continued Nurse Ruth and Dr Saltz were available for any questions or concerns I had. I feel that this open communication line helped keep my recovery smooth. I am 3 months post-op now with a body I didn't even have before I got married! I am extremely happy with my results and they will only continue to get better as the swelling subsides. I highly recommend Dr Saltz and her team. I have been saying how great she is for breast augmentation for years and will now recommend her for tummy tucks! Thank you again Dr Saltz! I'm sure my husband thanks you too. I can wear anything and everything I want to now with confidence. I don't have to think about my tummy lumps and bumps anymore. And I can wear jeans again because those lumps and bumps are gone now.
