Breast Augmentation

I felt fully confident with Dr. Brahme for my breast augmentation. He put safety over beauty; he told me that he would not go any bigger than I asked for, nor would he go with my desired size if he felt it wouldn’t be safe or feasible during surgery. I’m incredibly happy with my results - Dr. Brahme did a fantastic job achieving my desired look - as a 4’11 95 pound woman with pre-op AA cup size, I wanted a natural look with fullness in the front but not a big profile due to my frame. Thanks to the thorough consults with Dr. Brahme and the nurses, I decided on 310 cc which resulted in a full C with moderate plus profile. Everything went well - I felt like I knew what to expect and was prepared for post-op care. I really felt like all my questions and concerns at every stage of the process were addressed right away. His communication, warmth, honesty, and bedside manner really stood out to me and made me feel comfortable and confident about my procedure. I highly recommend Dr. Brahme and his team and couldn’t be happier that I chose them and LJCSC for my breast augmentation! [Single best thing is...] Dr. Brahme put safety over beauty— I asked him about gummy bear implants or tear drop shaped ones, and he said that he doesn’t use those since they are textured and associated with a risk of lymphoma. He also told me that he would not go any bigger than I asked for, nor would he go with my request if he felt it wouldn’t be safe or feasible during surgery. He also addressed my concerns about breast implant illness and emphasized how his decision making is driven by research and evidence-based practices; he backed up all his answers to my questions with research and his extensive clinical experience.

Scar Revision

I LOVE Dr. Brahme's work! I am soo happy with my results. The staff is incredibly sweet and super attentive. Nurse Christiana is funny, super educated and was a great highlight of my experience there. Dr. Brahme himself was just FANTASTIC!!! He really cares about satisfying his patients. When I was describing to him what it was I was looking for he was realistic with me on what was and wasn’t doable. Which I really appreciated. Thank you so much to the entire staff for all your effort in delivering an unforgettable experience to me during this COVID craziness. [Single best thing is...] My surgery went amazing. Even now as I am healing I fall more and more in love with myself. I have been receiving so many compliments on my figure, I immediately let them know who my Doctor was! Because of my incredible Doctor and Nurse I was so educated about how I can help minimize the appearance of my scars.

Breast Lift

My breasts look amazing! I’ve been to Dr. Brahme before and every procedure has exceeded my expectations. Genuine Gifted and Precise! He’s the best hands down.


The doctor was very informative and polite. Dr. Brahme was very reassuring and professional about the procedure. Did an amazing job explaining the procedure and process for after care! The whole staff was amazing!


Dr. Brahme and his nurse Cristina were amazing from the start. I had a virtual consultation for open rhinoplasty and felt so comfortable that I booked him for surgery the same day. The entire experience was so easy that I would do it again in a heartbeat. No pain- only mild discomfort- and the results have been life changing for me. Swelling and bruising were minimal and by the time I got my cast off at one week post-op nobody would’ve been able to tell I had surgery (just a little cover up on residual bruises). Dr. Brahme gave me the nose I had always wished I had. If I would’ve know it was this easy I would have done this surgery years ago. [Single best thing is...] The recovery was so smooth! Minimal bruising and swelling and no pain. They checked in on me often and I felt so taken care of.


Easy process, all questions answered, friendly experience.

All the staff goes out of thier way to make me confortable and so welcomed like an old friend. I've had two surgerys in the past with this doctor and his assistant Christina many years ago.

Dr. Brahme and his nurse Kristina took the time to go through many pictures of what I would want and what I would not want . They both took the time to answer any of my questions. They were both personable and easy to talk to.


Even though the consultation was virtual, it was personal and made me feel confident in my decision to get the procedure done.
