Everyone was so nice and supportive. I am very happy with my results so far. It was not as painful as I thought it was going to be.
being in the medical profession I have incredibly high standards. Dr Saltz and her staff were not only exceeded my expectations, but were professional, detail oriented and the experience was flawless. My procedure went much better than expected, Dr Saltz took extra time and care with me post operation and has served as a resource to me since. I would tell ANY female looking for surgery to go to Dr Saltz... there is truly no one better in southern california
The facility is nice, clean and ascetically appealing. The staff is welcoming, kind, supportive, and knowledgable about their field of expertise. I always felt that I was in good hands. Even after my procedure, I received a follow up call from my doctor and her nurse. All of the staff is extremely easy to talk to and made me feel at ease with my procedure.
The consultation was different in the office than described on their website. There seemed to be no clear way to figure out my breast size expectations. It felt I was never sure if the surgeon & I were obviously the same page. My breast size turned out smaller than expected. I felt like she was afraId to go a little bigger than she did. Overall, she did a good job, just wished she went a little bigger(like I repeatedly told her pre surgery).
Between the honesty of Ruth the nurse and Dr.Saltz you feel well taken care of. They take their time with you. There's no pressure. They truly care about. They call to check up on you. It's a great place. I couldn't ask for better care.
I felt Dr. Saltz was not as present in our consultations as her nurse. I had a concrete goal/look I was hoping for her to help me achieve but was never able to discuss/show pictures. I was told on the day of surgery, while getting prepped, that I can't do anything about the shape of your breasts". I still wonder why this was said and how I could've gotten that far into the process if that was the case. Disappointed in the lack of support and guidance for my anticipated goal/look. As a returning patient this is very discouraging."
Dr. Saltz is of course hands down the best surgeon. There is no question. Ruth made the whole experience perfect. Together they are a best team.
Dr. Lori Saltz is a true artist, and I am EXTREMELY pleased with her work and the results of my surgery! I would absolutely return to her for any plastic surgery needs. Also, I thought the surgery suite was perfect, and such a more pleasant experience than a hospital. It was one of the factors in my decision to have the surgery in San Diego. I live in Northern California so I spent anextra $3000 staying in a hotel for a couple of weeks while recovering, but it was absolutely worth it! I must also mention that the anesthesiologist was EXCELLENT! I woke up with absolutely no nausea, and felt alert, with absolutely no pain, just a bit of pressure from the wrapping/bandaging of my breasts. I had had two breast augmentations before Dr. Saltz corrected my breasts, and this was BY FAR such a more pleasant experience!
I didn't have any issues before or after my procedure. Dr. Saltz listened to what I was looking for and she exceeded my expectations. Everyone was helpful and nice before and after my procedure, all my questions and concerns were addressed with feeling like I was bothering them.
Every question was answered to completion and beyond. They made me feel so comfortable and so normal" for having these questions and concerns, especially when I was having doubts at the preop visit. Also the anesthesiologist was beyond awesome in every way. Additionally, my husband felt very comforted by the team's approach even though the day of my surgery was the first time he had been to the office and met anyone. "
Dr.Saltz and Ruth were amazing to work with! They were both professional and fun. They gave me great input on everything about my breast augmentation procedure and answered all of my questions.
I loved how Dr Saltz came right in and told me what she didn't like about the areas of concern i had. I loved what she had to say, and she was as critical and listening as I would have liked, without making me feel like I was deformed. She made me feel comfortable that she wanted my midsection to look as great as I did.
The patient care coordinator took extensive time answering my questions prior to my initial consultation and made me very comfortable to ask anything I needed.I was impressed with the detail of Dr Saltz' analysis and measurements to get my sizing right for my body. I was treated with respect and appreciation by every staff member and the nurse follow up calls were very much appreciated. I would not have called in for one or two small questions but I was pleased to speak to the nurse when she called me.
Everyone at LJCSC went above and beyond my expectations. Dr. Saltz, Nurse Ruth, and Karla the patient care coordinator were available to walk me through every step of the process and answer any questions I had. They are very professional, organized and meticulous. I felt well prepared for my surgery, very comfortable on surgery day, and had realistic expectations of the recovery process. This is a top notch group! I highly recommend Dr. Saltz to anyone looking for a great cosmetic surgeon.
Besides the anxiety issue and the fact that I didn't receive a call prior to surgery, which i had to call and get all the reminders from the nurse, I was very happy with all the staff and the procedures and the results!
I was extremely impressed by the professionalism and friendliness I received from the very beginning to the end. I felt comfortable and satisfied with my decision and outcome of my procedure, also my nurse Ruth was just amazing and went above and beyond what I expected! I love this office and I talk very highly about Dr.Saltz and her team.
I just love my whole experience with my doctor and all who helped.
Dr. Saltz is amazing. She knew exactly what size implant to give me, I hardly have any scaring, and Nurse Ruth was always wonderful to talk to, great at answering my questions, and alleviated all my fears. I've already suggested Dr. Saltz to a friend of mine. Wonderful work!! Thank you so much! I feel like a woman again.
What appeared like miscommunication between staff the day of surgery and also a few inappropriate comments made by Dr. Saltz. She is a wonderful surgeon, just not sure why certain things had to be said.
Dr Saltz is very talented and Ruth was always available when I needed her.
Dr.Salts is Amazing! She's extremely skilled at what she does and enjoys it and you can tell how she wants it to be right for you she listens to everything you say to make it perfect.
Dr. Saltz and Ruth provided excellent service with compassion in my decision. They were forth coming with as much information as I needed and always available by phone prior to and post op.
Dr. Saltz and her support staff are awesome. I really appreciated the time they took to help me feel comfortable with my decision to have surgery. Everything went very smoothly on the day of surgery and I believe that is in part because I felt very confident in Dr. Saltz. She did a great job.
One post op visit I had to see another dr when mine was on vacation we had a plan on how to take care of my hole where things died off it was already on the mend and was healing nice and flat. Then he told me to stick gauze INSIDE the sore which after 2 days made it A deep hole again and it never came back down like it was healing up before now it's very obvious I have a big dent in the bottom of my left breast because of him
I felt completely comfortable. Everyone was so sweet, personably and happy. The office is very thorough and reliable when it comes to making appointments and answering all my questions. Completely satisfied and will definitely recommend this practice to anyone!!
Great staff, nurse & surgeon. Confident that they knew what I wanted & my wants were met!!
Dr. Saltz is an amazing doctor. She replaced my implant nine years ago and did an amazing job, so I returned again. Ruth is another reason I returned to Dr. Saltz. The care I received nine years ago after I developed a hematoma was out standing. I will return again when needed.
I felt extremely comfortable with Ruth and Dr. Saltz. Dr. Saltz work speaks for itself. The process was easy and fun. Anytime I had a question or concern the response time and manner was great. I love how I look and know it will only get better.
The staff were all friendly and professional. Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth were an awesome team! Having trust in your surgeon, feeling comfortable, and informed about what to expect are some of the most important components to me. They made me feel very comfortable through out the process and were there to help support me with any questions or concerns that arose after surgery. They set the proper expectations from the beginning and were helpful in providing instructions on how to properly take care of myself before and after surgery. Most importantly, I was very satisfied with the results and would highly recommend others to come here.
Dr Saltz and Ruth were amazing! From start to finish! So happy with my choice to come to this facility!
Dr. Saltz & Ruth were amazing!I only went to one consultation, and when I left I knew I had found my surgeon. Lori and Ruth both made me feel comfortable and safe with the whole process, I've never been more happy with a decision. It took me 3 months to call and set up my surgery date only because I wanted to pay cash. The night I got home from after my surgery Dr. Saltz called to see how I was doing, it was so comforting to know she cared.The first few days were hard to get through, I felt helpless but now I am back to my everyday life and im so in love with my new boobies!
I heard many good things about Dr. Saltz from friends of friends, and after meeting her and Ruth I knew I would be in good hands. The facility is very well kept and I felt comfortable and excited to begin the process. Trying on the different cc's during my consultation really helped me narrow down want I wanted and I valued Dr. Saltz's professional opinion about what would look best for my body type. I have never had any type of surgery before so I was anxious up until the day of. After speaking with the nurse, my anesthesiologist, and Dr. Saltz on the morning before surgery my nerves went away. Everyone was so professional, understanding and friendly. I am so happy I made the decision to get breast augmentation and would do it again with LJCSC in a heartbeat.
Everything was great and very professional while still making my experience personal.
Dr. Saltz and her team were amazing. On the day of surgery they were very comforting and put all my fears at ease. I should also mention that I'm in love with my results!
Everyone is friendly and very professional.
Dr. Saltz and her staff were great. Dr. Saltz , a highly qualified and experienced surgeon put me at ease and was great at answering all my questions . She was kind and reassuring and very respectful about my wishes and my desired outcome. Her staff was fantastic and they were kind enough to spend a lot of time answering all my questions. They were amazing after surgery, checking in on me and making sure I was doing well. I am extremely happy and satisfied with my procedure and would highly recommend Dr. Saltz and her staff .
Overall, top notch service in all capacities. I love the results! The staff and doctor are funny and kind while also being very informative.
Everything went well, pleased with everything. My scar even looks better then I thought it would.
This experience was fantastic from the very beginning to the very end. Everyone involved with my surgery was absolutely wonderful in helping me with every aspect. I would definately recommend La Jolla Cosmetic Center especially Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth. Thank you for everything
I was told I did not need a lift and only needed an augmentation. However now one if my breast has extra loose tissue and the surgeon says now I may need a lift. I trusted the surgeons opinion prior to surgery and if I was going to need a lift I would've preferred it done right the first time. Also it seems with all the surgeries my surgeon performs why wouldn't she have recommended bigger implants to fill out my breast tissue if she didn't originally think I needed a lift. Having cosmetic surgery for the first time I rely heavily on the surgeons recommendation and expertise. I feel dissatisfied with the results. Also I never and still do not have clear guidelines for what I can and cannot do during the healing phase. Written instructions would've been helpful as a reference. A timeline would've been helpful like when I can start working out and to what degree. Things to expect with each month or weeks following surgery would've been helpful.
I was overall satisfied with the both of the procedures that I received. I never thought my breast could look so amazing. I was very happy with the results and feel more confident about myself. I would highly recommend Dr. Saltz. Her staff and herself are such caring individuals
Ruth and Dr. Saltz made me feel like I was the only patient they had. The office visits were so much fun, it makes you want to come back!
I like so much the doctor and staff they are so nice , they realy care about the surgery. I'm so glad to choose doctor Saltz.
Dr. Saltz and nurse ruth are great. They are caring and great at what they do.
All my questions and concerns have been answered. It is too soon to tell the outcome of the surgery because it has only been a week and my eyes are still swollen.
Overall it was a great experience and Dr. Saltz and staff were great!!
I was extremely comfortable with all the staff, all my questions where answered
My nipple reduction surgery exceeded my expectations. From my consultation to the my final result, I couldn't be happier. The support staff did a tremendous job in keeping me informed during the entire process. My doctor and nurses are so helpful and patient. Thanks so much for Dr. Salt.
Outcome already looks great 2 weeks out even though I was told I would have swelling for up to 9 mos.
The staff was so nice and made me feel very comfortable. I felt like I was in the best hands for surgery. They helped explain all my questions and helped me make the best decision without being judgmental.
I did not want large implants and so finding the exact size was very important to me prior to surgery. Some plastic surgeons ask you to leave it to them to make the final decision and I would never do that. Dr. Saltz doesn't do that either. She wants to ensure you know exactly what you're going to get. To meet that need, she provided 'sizing implants' made to mimic what they'd look like once implanted. No other surgeon I visited provided that. They did provide implants to stuff into a bra, but that is not how they would ultimately look so it wasn't as reassuring as Dr. Saltz's method. I am very happy with the size 195cc's I ultimately selected.
Both my doctor and my nurse were so incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. They gave me an honest opinion on what size would go best with my body (which was my main concern). My nurse was so comforting during the whole process, even as I was being put to sleep which helped me feel so much better about everything. Dr saltz is very honest and is an absolute perfectionist when it comes to her work. They make a great team and I couldn't be happier with my experience.
I am satisfied with my results. However, I feel that my recovery time was much longer that expected. On the other hand, I would highly recommend Dr. Saltz because she is very professional, caring and does a wonderful job with minimal scaring.
The entire experience was very comfortable and professional. I have been wanting this surgery for about 20 years and was always too shy to follow through with it. Dr. Saltz and her team were amazing and made me feel safe and comfortable. I am so grateful.
Dr. Lori salts and her staff were awesome!!! Very kind and always willing to take the time to answer any questions that I had..... Ruth (the nurse) always return my husbands call or tx and always reassured him what was normal and not normal......
I was very unsure about having the procedure, but after finding Dr. Saltz the moment I meet her I knew I would be in good hands. The nurses helped me with my emotional up and downs before surgery and recovery went by so smooth with very little pain meds. My experience was above anything I ever imagined. The office and procedure area is very well maintained and extremely welcoming!!
This was my 3rd procedure/visit to specifically, Dr. Saltz. I had scar removal, then came back for saline breast implants and recently removal & replacement with silicone breast implants. Dr. Saltz and her staff has always been kind, informative and most importantly helped me to feel at ease and comfortable with my procedure. I am ecstatic with my results.
The whole staff was very professional and knowledgable. They even called me to check on how I was doing post-op. I felt very well taken care of!
Dr Saltz and all of the staff were extremely sincere, nice and helpful throughout the whole process. I felt very well taken care of.
Dr. Saltz and Ruth listened intently and did their very best to help me. Jalayne was pleasant and helpful as well as all of the employees whom I encountered. If it hadn't been for Ruth suggesting I ask for my money back from the other surgeon, I would never have been able to afford to have this surgery at all so I am deeply grateful to both Ruth and Dr. Saltz. They truly care about what they do and their patients and they both have integrity.Thank you.
Wonderful facility and staff. Very knowledgeable, particular surgeon and fantastic nurse!
Dr. Saltz and her nurse as well as the front desk staff and the payment coordinator were all so helpful and very low pressure and very friendly. They met my needs and wants to a tee. It made my decision so easy. They were recommended to me via other friends and also had such high ratings on line. I did extensive research prior to my surgery about Dr. Saltz including a background check and malpractice check just to make sure I was in good hands. She is a perfectionist and very reputable. I love my new body and would go back in a heart beat.
Dr. Saltz and her staff were amazing. Friendly, Caring, Knowledgeable and very Professional. I appreciated Dr. Saltz going over all aspects of my procedure and realistic outcomes. She did an amazing job and had no problems post op. Highly recomend her to everyone I know.
I am very satisfied with the outcome of my surgery. The staff at LJCSC are caring and friendly. I would definitely recommend Dr. Saltz.
Everything from first contact to follow-up after surgery went perfect. My only problem is that my reduction didn't turn out perfectly symmetrical (I have OCD) but I am getting used to it as I am so thankful to be a size B versus a DDD!!!
I thought Dr. Saltz did a terrific job. This is the second time I had liposuction in the same area (mid portion) and the results from this surgery were much better than the last!
The professionalism and quality of care and outcome of my surgery. I felt safe and secure that if there was a problem my doctor and staff would give me high quality care to assure the best outcome possible. I always felt cared for and my care was individualized. As a nurse, I know what to look for and all the right things were present, including the emotional support for a physical altering change.
i love how friendly and knowledgeable everyone is. overall a very good experience!
Dr. Saltz and her staff were amazing. I've already recommended them. It was the best experience, everything I hoped for.
Prior to me having the breast reduction surgery at this site, I had liposuction on my legs. I also sent my daughter here and my best friend to have reductions surgeries. I was apprehensive to have another surgery after having so many during my lifetime, but I decided that for my quality of life; it was time to have my breasts reduced!! I am so thrilled that I finally did it and now I am living my life pain free!!!
I was so happy with Dr.Saltz and her staff. Everyone made me feel compfortable and welcomed. I was nervous but everyone at the office calmed my nerves and anxiety because of their friendliness and welcoming spirit. Out of all the surgeons in San Diego, I know I chose the right surgeon and practice to go to. The only slight doubt I have is I wish I would have gone a little bit bigger. I know this is a common statement, I just thought the sizing would be bigger based on the sizers I tried on during consultation/pre-op. If I had known this is the true size of the implant, I would have gone about 50-75ccs larger in order to achieve the look I wanted. However, at this point I can't focus on that. I'm just incredibly grateful and thankful for a speedy recovery and a team to go to when I had questions and concerns.
I am satisfied with the overall outcome. Nurses and staff members were friendly and polite. However, I wish the nurse and surgeon would have explained more in detail the recovery period, since mine was painful and long to the point that i was thinking to explant after only 2 weeks. Nevertheless, I ended up feeling happy and satisfied with the result and most likely be back for more procedures.
I visited two Surgeons before making my decision to become a patient of Dr. Saltz. Dr. Saltz and her Staff are exceptional people. I was completely amazed that a group of people could be so incredible. My expectations were exceeded in every way by everyone I came in contact with at her office. The Recovery Nurse had the most sincere concern for me after my Surgery. She deserves the highest recognition.
Dr Saltz took the time to figure out what surgery would be best for my situation.
I Loved Ruth She is sooo amazing!! Dr Saltz is amazing also, I'm sooo happy with my results.
Enjoyed the quick and thorough communication with the surgeon via email. Good quick phone response from nurse. All questions answered honestly. High quality results.
I could not be more pleased with my experience with Dr. Saltz and the rest of the staff at LJCSC! The staff all made me feel comfortable, informed, and they were all so patient with my questions and concerns. I will absolutely refer my friends and family who want a cosmetic procedure done to Dr.Saltz! Thank you!
Ruth is phenomenal!!
My nurse(s) and surgeon were so nice and very informative about my visit and through out my surgery. THey made me feel so comfortable at all times. I am very satisfied at this practice and I would definitely would recommend them to any of my friends and family.
Except for one area that needs redoing, I was happy with the result and the staff are all very kind and helpful.
Best experience.... Dr Saltz & Ruth her nurse were awesome from the first visit to my last. Keeping me informed on everything and making me feel at ease about getting a breast lift. The outcome was more then I could have imaged and I am very so very happy with results. I highly recommend Dr Saltz.
Very Friendly staff, very helpful and caring
This was my first surgical experience and I am completely satisfied by my experience and results. Dr. Saltz and Ruth listened to all of my questions and concerns. Thank you Dr. Saltz!!!
Dr Saltz allowed me to express my desires, listened to my goals, discussed the realities of the results and performed the procedure as agreed. It was an overall very satisfactory experience. The personnel at the practice, from reception to patient coordinator to nurse were friendly, well trained and patient oriented. I especially appreciated that my appointments were on time with no long waits. I am very pleased with my surgery and Dr. Saltz. I would happily recommend her to others.
Dr. Saltz and Ruth made me comfortable from the beginning, were completely professional and treated me as a long time client. I would be happy to send friends who want the best care to be treated with them. They make a great team.
Dr Saltz and staff treat you like you're their favorite. They listen, they understand, they want to help. They are warm and kind and I couldn't have felt more comfortable. My result were BEYOND amazing. I feel like a new woman. Best surgical experience EVER.
I am happy with my results and have not had any problems thus far. Although it would be very helpful if the nurse/ surgeon would explain in more detail about the recovery. Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend Dr. Saltz
Dr. Saltz's attention to detail was beyond words. She made every effort to ensure that the size I wanted would be perfect, and it is! I couldn't be happier with the overall experience. Not once was a nervous or uncomfortable and both the nurse Ruth, and Dr. Saltz were very friendly and personable. If I ever I need another procedure, this is the doctor I will see. Thank you Dr. Saltz!
I had a breast augmentation done by a surgeon in PA in 2011. I moved to CA in 2012 and was in an auto accident. The impact of the seatbelt caused my left implant to bottom out. My massage therapist suggested that I make and appointment with Dr. Brahme at LJCSC. He referred me to another surgeon in the group, Dr. Saltz, for a revision procedure. In August, Dr. Saltz revised both breasts with grafts to add additional support. Not only did I receive the most AMAZING care and attention from the surgeons and staff, but the outcome is ten times better than I ever could have imagined! I work in the medical field and I met with several plastic surgeons before making a decision on my initial augmentation and the revision surgery. HANDS DOWN, Dr. Saltz is an absolute expert in the field. Her attention to detail speaks for itself. Her staff is highly trained and patient satisfaction is a top priority. I was beyond impressed with my overall experience and am so grateful that I chose Dr. Saltz and LJCSC for this procedure! I HIGHLY recommend this Center, the staff, and Dr. Saltz. They're simply amazing!!!!
Every aspect of my experience was wonderful. Everyone made me feel very comfortable and informed.
The staff was always friendly and willing to answer any questions I had prior to surgery and after. Dr. Saltz really listened to what I wanted and then gave her own advice, which I really appreciated.
I was well informed and felt like I could relax and know that I was in good hands. Everyone there was very nice and polite. I was taken care of in a timely manner when I did have my two problems with the right breast.
LOVE, love, love Dr. Saltz and Ruth.
The knowledgeable office staff made my overall experience very comfortable. They provided me with all of the necessary info on what to expect both before and after surgery.
Aside from the bad surgeon experience, the entire staff is amazing. I would come back for Ruth (head nurse) and Janelle (patient coordinator). They are so welcoming, VERY nice and accomodating and they just make you feel so comfortable. My results are almost exactly what I wanted (one scar is so much darker and deeper than the other and didn't line up the areola). I really don't think I would come back or recommend others here.
Dr Saltz is very meticulous, so along with her passion for her career she accomplished outstanding results for my procedure. I had only dreamed of having a body that Dr Saltz has given me, because of her amazing skills I have become a confident woman.
all was easy and the jobdone is the best
The staff were all amazing!! Jan, the patient coordinator was very helpful and friendly. The nurse, Ruth was so nice and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Saltz was very nice and professional! It is easy to see that she takes her job very seriously and she did her best to give me the results I wanted. I am very happy with my results!! The whole experience was great!!!
knew who my surgeon was going to be as soon as i saw her picture, which was surprising bc i have been researching doctors for over two years for this procedure. would and have recommended this facility/surgeon and surgical procedure to any who is interested. no regrets, extraordinarily happy!
Dr Saltz and her nurses were all so wonderful. They really make you feel comfortable the second the appointment begins. Dr Saltz does excellent work and I am so happy with my results, I would recommend her and the practice to all of my friends or family.
Everything, from the time I submitted my request to be contacted to the present day, went so smoothly and everyone in the office genuinely cares for the patients. I never felt like I couldn't call or email to get questions answered, regardless of how seemingly silly some questions were.
Dr Saltz spoke to me like a person, rather than just a patient. She was very attentive to my needs and concerns, she listened to what I had to say, gave informative feedback, and answered all of my questions (even the stupid ones). I get very nervous in hospitals and medical facilities, but Dr Saltz was able to ease my nerves with her knowledge, experience, competence, and friendliness.
The surgeon did a great job on my augmentation but seemed to rush a little during the post procedure appointments. She is highly sought after and very busy I am sure. Overall I am highly satisfied with my results.
Size of implants is bigger than agreed upon, too big.Symmetry of breasts are not normal looking on the bottom, implant is visual.
Dr. Saltz and Ruth were amazing. My constricted breasts have posed a problem for me my entire life making me feel abnormal and uncomfortable with my own body. They informed me that there were others like me and that they could not only help surgically but emotionally as well. Every step of the process was clearly laid out in front of me from pre op, post op and through my recovery process I have felt informed, cared for and most importantly satisfied with every aspect of the process. I look forward to using Dr. Saltz in the future and only have the highest regard for her, her staff and facility.
I was extremely comfortable throughout the entire process. Everyone in the office was very friendly while still being professional. My healing was fast and my results are awesome! Would absolutely recommend this practice (especially Dr. Saltz!)
I was very comfortable with the Nurse and Surgeon, I felt like I was heard and all my needs were met.
I could tell the surgeon was giving her full opinion on what was best for me and my body type. The surgeon was very knowledgable and helped me with decisions and made me feel at ease that the right decision would be made once in surgery.
The whole team was very friendly and to the point. Dr Saltz listened to what I wanted and I'm very happy with the results.
From my consultation, pre-op, actual mommy-makeover surgery, and post-op, I found Dr. Saltz and her staff especially educational, friendly, and professional. Dr. Saltz is a detail oriented precision perfectionist with her surgery!, while Ruth (Dr. Salz's nurse) is incredibly personable, knowledgeable, informative, helpful, and caring. Janelle (Dr. Salz's coordinator) is kind, communicative, and persistent. All the ladies at reception are personably sweet and attentive. I very much appreciate the entire team. And everyone was especially loving to my baby boy, as he was with me during most visits, which was extra special.
Dr. Saltz took a disaster of a breast augmentation and turned it in to exactly what I had hoped for the first time. She listened to me and exercised good judgment when it came to size. The nurse was excellent and was available to answer any questions or concerns. They got me in quickly and worked with my schedule.
My experience with ljcsc and Dr Saltz and Ruth was amazing! It was my first surgery and first time being put to sleep! I was so freaked out and everyone did an amazing job to assure me that everything was going to be fine. Once the surgery was over I felt like i just took a quick nap! I would do that all over agian in a heartbeat! Probably the best nap Ive had since kids!!! I am very happy with my natural result. Most times i dont think people can tell that ive had implants! But i definatly feel better!!! And since my consult i have always looked forward to my appointments with Dr Saltz and Ruth!!!
I felt comfortable in the setting. It feels clean which is important. It's organized. Every staff person encountered is polite and professional. Everyone is kind.I would recommend Dr. Saltz to anyone. My greatest recommendation is that I would myself return to her should I choose to have anything else taken care of.Ruth, Dr. Saltz's nurse is great. I appreciate her knowledge, kindness and eagerness to make sure all is well.
I called for an appointment and was able to get in to see Dr. Saltz within a week for my consultation and surgery which was ideal since I live 6 hours away. She was very easy to talk to and would describe her as a fun personality and really got me excited for my surgery. After my initial meeting I was not nervous at all. The procedure went very well and my outcome is exactly what I wanted. I couldn't be happier with the results. Dr. Saltz was recommended to me and I recommend her to everyone I know.
The results of my surgery are the main reason I was highly satisfied with my doctor and her staff. Her nurse was also very friendly, helpful, and super funny. I also thought it was so nice that my doctor was very easy to contact after my surgery when I had questions. I had a very positive experience from start to finish.
Dr.Saltz took care to listen and explain any questions I had and took care of the situation when I did have a problem.My results are amazing and I am very happy with her quality of work.
I am a very detail oriented person who asks A LOT of questions. Dr. Saltz, Janelle and her nurses (and other nurses) were incredibly accommodating and always available to answer my questions. I was so prepared before my day of surgery so I was able to be relaxed (as much as one can be in such a circumstance) the day of. Dr. Saltz called me the first night after my surgery and I called the office several times for a couple months after - again, someone was always available to answer my questions. I am so pleased with the results and enjoyed the whole process!
I felt safe at all times and at ease with the procedure and the risks. Everyone was friendly and accommodating and took my concerns seriously. The atmosphere was supportive, reassuring and caring.
I was so impressed with the office and the staff as soon as I walked in the door for the first time. So friendly and made me so comfortable. Beautiful office and happened to be the best priced!
Everyone was very nice and informative, they made me feel special.
The friendliness and support of the entire staff made me feel very comfortable with my decision to have surgery. Having every step of my procedure and recovery thoroughly explained made me feel completely at ease. There was always someone immediately available to answer any question I had, no matter how minor. I am extremely satisfied with my results!
I could not have been happier with the way I was treated by Dr. Saltz, Ruth, and staff. My experience was wonderful. I was well informed and treated with the utmost care and attention. Ruth went as far as to give me her cell phone number in case I couldn't get ahold of anyone in the office!!! Dr. Saltz did an amazing job. I had no complications what so ever! She kept me calm and informed at all times.My scars are small and look wonderful. She is indeed an expert in her field. I would recommend your facility to everyone! I recently had my breast augmentation somewhere else because we moved out of state and could not have it performed at LJCSC. The care I have received at this other facility isn't even close to how wonderful I was treated by Dr. Saltz and staff. Not even close! I could never thank you enough for doing such an incredible job!
The staff was so helpful and friendly! I felt extremely comfortable and love the results! I am constantly recommended Dr. Saltz already!!
Everyone was positive and supportive. My surgery results are exactly as expected. I I'm very happy!
highly professional, kind and skilled
I'm very much happy with my breast implant and glad I did the procedure w/ Dr. Salz.
Dr. Saltz is incredibly professional and great at what she does. She made me comfortable and did great work. The facility is very nice and the staff is friendly and helpful.
I have capsular contractions
Dr Saltz, Ruth, and ALL the staff exceeded my expectations in every way. Have already recommened to friend less than 2 months out of surgery. While getting fitted for new bras and swimsuits was asked about my surgeon and complemented.
This was my second breast augmentation with Dr. Saltz, I had capsular contracture. It was bittersweet as I was not happy with the size that I had originally chosen. I decided to increase the breast implant size and change to textured implants- I could not be happier! I knew that I was in the best hands, Dr. Saltz and Ruth listened to what I wanted, taking into consideration what was appropriate for my body. Dr. Salt's expertise is priceless, she and her staff are excellent at what they do. I would also like to say Julieanne (I hope I spelled her name right) did an excellent job going over sizing at my pre-op appointment, she really listened and help guide me through what my options were. If I were to need anymore cosmetic surgery (after kids! or botox!) I will be back and always recommend Dr. Saltz to my friends and family. Dr. Saltz and Ruth are a great team and balance each other out perfectly, thank you Ruth for pushing for a bigger size in the operating room, the final size is perfect without being over the top. Also- the music, decor, atmosphere in the looby/waiting room, I loved. It relaxed me and made me feel comfortable at each and every visit.
Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth made me feel like a friend. Janelle the coordinator did, as well. They are supportive, helpful and fun! They remember who I am, and what my life is like outside the decision to have surgery. Or maybe they just take awesome notes! Either way, it really makes me feel safe with them! Nice job, ladies!
From my first contact email, all the way through my follow up appointments, my experience was perfect. I am thrilled with the results and I felt relaxed and informed throughout the process.
The surgeon was extremely skilled and knowledgeable and she listened to what I wanted rather than try to give me a boilerplate solution or push me into a larger size than would fit with my expectations and desires. She suggested an intermediate solution that I would not have even known to ask about that was perfect. The results are wonderfully natural and it is very obvious why she has such a good reputation. The nurse was very helpful explaining all the pre- and post-op care/preparations. I felt very comfortable discussing all topics surrounding the procedure with the nurse and the surgeon. Everyone else I met and worked with from the patient coordinator to the receptionists were nice, empathetic yet professional. Truly a top-notch team.
My results are fantastic! The staff was very attentive and nice. The center is so clean and professional. Classy.
I am a returning patient. I had such a positive experience with Dr. Saltz that I never considered anyone else. The second surgery not only surpassed my expectations but was better than my first experience. Several of my friends have since become her patients and I couldn't speak more praise for the practice! I am extremely happy that my breasts don't look fake. In fact, they look so natural that many of my friends have not even suspected I had a procedure done. The FIRST thing they say when I tell them is, Who is your doctor?" If you are considering breast augmentation, you cannot go wrong with Dr. Saltz. She is a perfectionist that listens to your desires, lifestyle and provides you honest feedback on how to achieve the look you are going for. I'll definitely be a life long patient!"
Dr. Saltz listened to my concerns, was easy to talk to, and took time with me. I did not feel as though I was rushed and that she had to get to the next patient. Ruth was great as well
I love Dr. Saltz and her staff because they are warm and professional and really listen to their patients. Prior to my breast augmentation/lift in 2003, I visited 4 other surgeons for a consultation. Dr. Saltz was the only one that I felt would give me the results that I wanted to achieve. As a woman, I think she is more in touch with what we want and takes a more conservative approach, as opposed to a male surgeon. I returned to her office in 2012 to have my saline implants replaced with silicone and I am extremely happy with the results (so is my boyfriend). Thank you Dr. Saltz and your staff at LJCSC.
Dr. Saltz and Ruth are the best at what they do. I loved the fact that Dr. Saltz could relate to my medical concerns as she too had gone through the same procedure herself. Ruth was amazing at explaining every aspect of the procedures and her friendly attitude always made feel confident that I was in the best hands. At my appointments, they always made my husband and I feel very comfortable. It never felt like I was seeing a doctor, but people that I've known for a long time. During my recovery process they made themselves easily available to us. And the fact, that the next morning after my procedure Ruth made a house call, that assured me that I was in the best of care and that I had made the right choice when I chose Dr. Salts and Ruth. The overall experience I received from them and staff was very professional and friendly. Now I'm 3 months post op, and I'm so happy with my recovery. I love my results and I'm so thankful to Dr. Saltz for my amazing results, pleasant experience and making me feel more confident about my body! There's no doubt that I would recommend Dr. Saltz to all my friend and family.
Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth made me feel comfortable from the start. They as a team are wonderful. Even when issues of an infection were present, they never made me feel like I was alone. They comforted me and told me that they would do everything they can to fix the problem.
Dr Saltz was so direct and positive about the procedure it made me feel confident.
All the staff was overly nice and accommodating. The nurse and surgeon made me feel very comfortable before, during and after my surgery.
Ruth and dr saltz made me feel very comfortable. Their confidence as well as clear attention to detail made me feel that they were as analytical and invested in the way that I looked as I was. The time given to me at consult to discuss the options and differences in product helped me make a well informed decision.
Dr. Saltz and her staff were amazing! They helped me step by step thru everything, I could call at any time with questions and come in if I had any concerns. It was o e of my best experiences. I would recommend her to any of my friends and family. I am so happy with how my surgery turned out, it has made so much more confident.
From start to finish Dr Saltz and the entire staff were amazing. Pre-op, post-op, during the procedure, everything was fluid. I even had a minor issue and she handled it right away even though it was after hours. I cannot say enough good things about these ladies and gentleman (can't forget about him). I love the results. I could not have imagined it would look this good. I have also recommended her to a friend who will be seeing her later this week. Absolutely the best.
Customer service was great. My nurse and surgeon was extremely nice and made me feel excited for surgery rather than feeling scared or nervous. Amazing and cleanliness of the facility. Post operations in checking my progress was helpful in determining whether the outcome of my progress was okay which eased my mind. Overall everything was more than great I would definitely do it again if I had to! If I decide to do another cosmetic surgery in the future, I would definitely come back! Everything was more than wonderful! My experience was life changing and I'm extremely happy with my breasts!
Great results! Wonderful staff:)
I raised the issue of what I wanted at the day of the surgery to size up a cup higher to what I signed for 450cc to 500 cc but was denied. I was hoping to get what I paid for but ended unhappy.
Everyone was kind, put my needs first, and explained eerything in detail. I felt very comfortable and excited about my surgery. Dr. Saltz was an amazing surgeon and will go back to her again for any other surgeries.
Great experience. I have no complaints whatsoever and if I have anymore survey I would definitely be returning to LJCSC.
Dr. Saltz answered all of my questions and she really listened to what I wanted. She was realistic in discussing sizing based on my current lifestyle and I really liked that. Her results in her post op photo book were amazing and I am SO happy with my results. I would recommend her to any and everyone!
There were two things that I wasn't highly satisfied with during the whole process.1. Although the nurses contacted me at least three times in the first week following surgery (which was great!), I really started to feel apprehensive between 3-5 weeks. Once you get over the initial pain and swelling, you start to feel insecure about the other random pains, the look of the incisions, hardened areas in the breast, etc. I did call once to talk to a nurse, and she was helpful. I would suggest that the nurses touch base with the patient before the two month visit. 2. Sizing is a very big deal! I was convinced that I picked the right size, but now believe that I went to small. Why? I have read online that the sizers show you to be 10-20% larger than you will appear after surgery. Maybe patients could take a few sizers home for a week or even purchase a few to make sure they pick the right size. The two times I tried the sizers on in the office, I picked the same size each time. Nevertheless, the pictures I took with the sizers show that I was larger than I actually look after surgery. I like how my breasts look naked, but in clothes I am not quite satisfied.
I was extremely nervous about the whole procedure, but the staff at LJSC were beyond excellent. They gave me every piece of information I asked for and made me feel completely comfortable from begining to end. I absolutely love the results! I couldn't have imagined better! Everyone at LJSC contributed to my satisfaction from the time I scheduled my consultation. I've already told all my friends where to go if they are even considering cosmetic surgery!
I was very satisfied with my experience and happy that I choose the surgeon that I did. I would have liked to have been more informed about how long I needed to wait after surgery to see the results that I was expecting. I was unaware of what to expect as far as the appearance of my implants and how they would appear like pectoral implants and slowly transition and fill into breasts. I would not think twice about using my surgeon for future procedures and look forward to referring friends and family.
My surgery was complicated, but Dr Saltz is very skilled and the outcome is better than I was willing to hope for. I'm very satisfied with the outcome.
I was comfortable. All the staff and the surgeon listened to me. I wasn't embarrassed at any time. The surgeon checked up on me before and after my surgery. The nurse responded to all my emails and concerns. What I paid was worth it. My scars aren't visible. My needs were met. I would not recommend anyone but my surgeon. The nurse, surgeon and her team are amazing. This was a life changing experience and I am happy and grateful to have found her. The work they did is incredible.
I would highly recommend Dr. Saltz for your breast augmentation surgery. I felt comfortable and confident with her as my doctor. I am completely satisfied with my experience at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center and most of all, with my results! You will not regret your decision!
It was very difficult to know the size of the implants that I should get. I was hoping to be considerably bigger than what I am after the surgery. As a patient, I am used to dealing in cup sizes versus cc's. So trying to make a decision on how many cc's I wanted was very hard and I did not end up getting exactly what I was wanting.
I initially e-mailed inquiring about a breast lift. I promptly received a phone call from Jan, who scheduled a consult for me. Upon meeting Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth, I could tell I need not look any further. The entire staff is friendly, welcoming and charming. More than that they are extremely knowledgeable.Thank you for everything!!!
My surgeon and nurse were great. Also, everyone involved in the surgery process. They all made me feel really comfortable. Outcome was great. Couldn't be happier.:)
Dr. Saltz is very professional and is a very talented surgeon, my results were excellent. The staff is very knowledgeable and attentive prior to surgery and post surgery as well. It is an amazing surgical practice and I will recommend it highly.
The entire staff was very friendly and informative. They made my choice to have the surgery more comforting. I have already gone on numerous websites, like Yelp, to tell about your office. I am already planning on going back for my next procedure. Dr. Saltz is great!!!
I realy feel that Dr. Saltz listened to me and gave me what I wanted. She understood my lifestyle and helped me choose the size that was perfect. I am extremely satisfied and would highly recommend her.
I believe Dr. Saltz is the best in her field. Her knowledge and professionalism outshined every other Dr. I have heard about. The facility is beautiful and the staff very friendly. I would not think twice about recommending her or coming back again. The only thing that could have made it perfect was more explanation of post op needs and procedures as well as a phone number to call if potential problems arise that could be 24/7. Still I am not complaining. I love my new body!!!
Dr. Saltz listened to what I wanted when I said I wanted a B" cup. However, she did suggest a "C" cup based on my size and frame. (I had previously visited two male plastic surgeons and they only wanted to perform a lift vs. a reduction. My breasts were a size "E" before the surgery). I agreed to a small "C" cup and couldn't be happier."
After surgery, no one followed up with a phone call to check on me. Days later, a nurse called, only after my close friend called their office with questions. Also, disappointed with loss of sensation in entire right breast.
Both Dr. Saltz & her nurse Ruth made me feel comfortable & at ease from Day 1 with their friendly demeanor as well as their knowledge & expertise. Also before surgery the anesthesiologist played music I enjoyed to help me feel comfortable & relaxed before I went under (can't believe he actually had Thievery Corp on his playlist, so cool!). Everyone, from the office staff to Dr. Saltz were friendly & made me feel like family while still maintaining the utmost professionalism. I'm thrilled with the results & I highly recommend Dr. Saltz at every opportunity. Thank you thank you for such a positive experience! So happy!
I still feel my breast are not the same size. The right breast that was an implant only (not lift and implant) still has a huge divot when I lift my arms. My areola are oblong and not round. I also had liposuction to most of my body. All areas are very lumpy and cellulite-y not smooth at all.
Dr. Saltz and her head nurse were incredibly professional, kind hearted and gracious to me and my husband. The entire practice office is inviting, with great attention to detail. My coordinator was exceptional and worked with me regarding the financing. She was very dear to me and helpful when I felt I was not able to make this happen.
Everything exceeded my expectations. Extremely professional staff, helpful, friendly, and informative.
Dr. Saltz is truly an expert and my case was complicated. She went above and beyond! Her nurse Ruth is always very helpful and responsive. Then entire staff is very pleasant. I have already referred 2 friends!
Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth are among the best in the business for their knowledge, expertise, compassion and skill. I'm a returning patient and I'll continue to recommend this practice to my friends and family. Thanks for doing a great job on my surgery!!
Dr. Saltz nurse Ruth was assume the entire team was excellent I would recommend patient to this office any day . Thanks to the whole surgery team
The nurse and surgeon, Dr. Saltz were very knowledgeable and made me feel extremely comfortable. They understood what I wanted and listened to and answered my million questions. I had trouble deciding on a certain cc and left it up to Dr. Saltz to make the final decision in surgery. She chose the perfect size and I could not be more happy with my new figure and the overall experience. I would recommend Dr. Saltz to any of my friends and family.
Dr. Salltz and her staff are incredible! Their before and after care and concern are over the top. They make you feel like you are their only patient. I can call at any time and there is always someone there to talk to me and answer my questions.
The surgeon and everyone at her practice were warm, inviting, and knowledgeable. They made me feel at ease during the consult, pre-op, and procedure, as well as all the follow up appointments. The surgeon is highly skilled and her perfectionism shows in my results. I would definitely recommend her to anyone considering this procedure. After seeing many results and doing a lot of research, I don't think there is a better surgeon in the country.
Dr. Saltz is highly qualified and came highly recommended by several of my friends. She did a wonderful job with my breast augmentation and I am extremely satisfied with the results. I would recommend her to anyone and am confident they will be as happy with their results as I am with mine!
I was highly satisfied with my surgery experience because I was informed what to expect and walked through everything that would happen. The facility and staff made me feel welcome and comfortable 100% of the time and the environment was soothing and friendly. My surgery results are just what I wanted and I have the surgeon to thank for doing such an amazing job. I would not change a thing about the whole experience! Very happy!
I WOULD LIKED TO BE COMPLETELY INFORMED AS TO THE LENGTH OF THE RECOVERY TIME AND THE EXTENT OF THE DIFFICULTY OF IN-HOME CARE.I WAS SOMEWHAT UNPREPARED FOR THE LEVEL OF PAIN AND LENGTH OF TIME THAT THE RECOVERY TAKES.
Tremendous experience with the entire staff and outstanding results.
I am so glad I did the surgery. I had been putting it off, but LJCSC eased my concerns. Overall, it was a great experience and I feel and LOOK great. Thank You.
Dr. Saltz and her staff were friendly, attentive and made me feel like they really care about me. Everyone was very professional, but warm at the same time. I always felt very comfortable and I completely trusted in their expertise. Overall, a great experience. There is nothing that I would change except it may have been nice (but not necessarily imperative) to get a follow-up phone call from one of the nurses in the evening after the procedure.Very happy!Thank you!!!
The entire staff at the practice is amazing. I could always ask as many questions as possible and get answers. And the support is amazing because most if the staff have had surgery and can answer from real life experience. My surgeon is also very skilled and talented at what she does.
First of all- I am thrilled with the results of my surgery! My self confidence has risen significantly and I just feel so much better about how I look. I cannot say enough about the nurses at your facility. I have seen a few throughout my experience and everyone was kind, patient and VERY caring- especially Ruth! I wish I could remember the name of the nurse who was with me during my procedure- she was over the top fantastic. Her bedside manner was very soothing to a nervous patient. Just wonderful! I will and have referred Dr. Saltz to some friends. I just can't express enough how happy I am with the outcome of my surgery.
I was so pleased with the overall experience I had. I was very comfortable with all explanations and had every question answered before, during and after my procedure. I highly recommend this surgeon and the office/practice.
Dr. Saltz and staff members are amazing. Answered all my questions and concerns. They made me feel very relaxed from beginning to end. Never once did I leave any of my visits with concerns and or questions that were not address. This was a wonderful experience.
Dr. Lori Saltz and her staff were extremely knowlegable, welcoming, comforting and attentive to my needs as a first time plastic surgery patient. I was unsure about the procedures that I chose to have and they helped me to make an informed and confident decision. I will always remember how pleasant they made the experience for me and I would definately return if I decided to have more procedures done, as well as refer any family member of friend to her and her wonderful team. Thank you Dr. Saltz!
Dr. Saltz performed my first breast aug 15 years ago and I wanted her to do this one as well. She is very professional and sensitive to my requests and I really like that. I know her staff is available should I have any questions about the procedure before or after surgery. I especially was surprised to receive a book with all the information about before and after surgery...that was a big help knowing what to expect even though this was my second time. The medication prescribed was exactly what I needed and used...alot has changed in 15 years and I must say I was very happy with the results of my breast aug and with the staff.
Dr. salz was very welcoming easy to talk to and very professional. Everyone in her office was friendly, respectful and professional. Most importantly i was very comfortable in asking questions. client for life !
All staff members are highly competent and very personable. They all made me feel very comfortable with the surgery and recovery process. The office is very comfortable and relaxing.
the damage done to my breast looks teribble and i dont know if it can be fixed at this point but I will consult again with my surgeon and also will get opinions from other doctors as well
The staff, especially the nurses, are so responsive and helpful. I had a lot of questions after my surgery and if I wasn't abe to reach a nurse immediately my call was returned promptly. Sarah was extremely helpful during my recovery and was very patient. She answered my questions so patiently and I felt like she really cared. The offIce staff is always so cheerful. I've had no trouble getting appointments around my schedule, so I didn't need to miss more work than I wanted to. Dr. Saltz did amazing work. I was shocked when I saw my before pictures. Overall the team is wonderful and I'd feel completely confident referring friends and family without hesitation.
The second time I went for a visit, the ladies at the front counter knew my name! And I was just walking in! That is very personable and is very warming. I was actually very surprised. The nurses have also had certain procedures done and it makes it more comfortable to talk to them about it because some of them have gone through the procedure themselves and they can personalize it. Dr. Saltz is amazing, so knowledgeable and understandable. This was just a very amazing place to go!
just an overall wonderful experience and great staff
Dr Salts was great and gave me exactly what i asked for, the surgery went well and exactly as they explained, she made me feel very comfortable and at ease about my decision. IM am very happy with the results and have recommend several friends to her after my procedure. Thank you
Dr. Saltz was friendly and knowledgable. She made me feel very comfortable and listened to exactly what I wanted.
Great communication skills. I felt that she was treating me as an individual, not just a routine case. Felt extremely comfortable talking to her, sharing my concerns.
Dr Saltz made me very comfortable and answered any and all questions that I had. The staff was very considerate of me thoughtout pre-op and post-op. I just had a wonderful experience and felt very cared for.
Everyone in the office was friendly and knowledgable. They made me feel very comfortable. I couldn't be happier with the process and outcome of my surgery. Dr Saltz really seems to care what the client wants and did an amazing job making my vision come to life!!!
The entire process was over the top wonderful. Everyone who was in any contact with me, made me extremely comfortable, and treated me as if they had know me for a long time. Even between recovery visits they remembered trivial information. My surgeon and her nurse were excellent.
Dr. Saltz is an excellent surgeon and I am so happy with my results! I have a pretty, flat tummy again after having twins, and my breasts look better than ever!
I got what i wanted and never felt persuaded any other way. Even though I was unsure of size and material to choose I was given enough information by surgeon and nurses to decide what was best for me. Completely satisfied with results!
I am a repeat patient. I had a great first experience so I returned when I needed a revision. I couldn't be happier.
Dr Saltz really listened to me and what I expected from my surgery results. She really delivered. Her knowledge is unsurpassed and I'm very happy with my results!!!
Loved the team in general and felt very comfortable with Dr. Saltz's expertise.
Dr. Saltz and her staff were knowledgable and supportive and made me feel very comfortable. I knew that I could ask anything at anytime and I would get a prompt answer. They are wonderful care givers and I am extremely happy with the results of my procedure.
Great results and great staff members. I always felt comfortable.
Every procedure I have had there has been exceptional. I would reccommend to all my friends and will return for additional procedures in the future. The staff is friendly and well knowledgeable, answered all my questions and the facility is very clean and accessible.
Already said it, follow up was terrible!
Dr. Saltz is easy going and friendly, and provides information openly & honestly before/during/after surgery. Her staff is fun and knowledgeable, and they all made me feel comfortable from the start. Everyone made me feel as thought they'd known me for years, and they've all been there whenever I've had questions, even post-surgery. I've been back for other minor procedures, and will continue to recommend Dr. Saltz and her team to everyone!
