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.
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.
Dr. Brahme was very kind and answered all my questions.
Great result! Dr. Brahme is a wonderful surgeon.
Dr. Brahme has a fantastic bedside manner. He listens to concerns and listened to my needs. His nurse Christina is amazing and I couldn’t be happier with my results! [Single best thing is...] This is hard question to answer as my experience was amazing in all aspects. Everything was 5 star from start to finish!
Dr. Brahme is an excellent plastic surgeon. He listens to his patients and gives suggestions. His RN Christina works well with him and is so kind and attentive! I am so happy with the results and would not hesitate to refer Dr. Brahme to family and friends. Fantastic results!!
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.
Dr. Brahme, Christina, and the rest of the staff were great. From my initial appointment and consultation through to surgery and recovery they were there to answer any questions. Everyone was very friendly, and I am very pleased with my results.
Karina was extremely thorough. She answered all of my questions and told me what to expect going forward.
Very natural looking, Dr. Brahme listened to what I was looking for and delivered!!
Dr. B. made me feel comfortable and relaxed about the procedures that he is going to be performing. I was nervous but he calmed me down. Professional, friendly, and clean.
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. Always rememberd my awesome experiences with them so a no brainer on why I came back to them. They are the best in my mind.
Dr. Brahme took all the time needed to explain in detail all of my concerns.
The Doctor's work is excellent. His staff are remarkable. You are well taken care of. [Single best thing is...] The lift turned out perfect.
I thought Dr. Brahame was very professional. He answered my questions and was very pleasant and helpful. I felt comfortable with him. It was easy to trust in his opinion.
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.
Dr. Brahme and his staff took very good care of me. My procedure was quick and painless. I can already tell my results are going to be great. His nurse Cristina made me feel very comfortable in my consultation and answered every question I had.
Getting scheduled for my procedure took no time at all, and I felt educated and prepared about what to expect during every step of the way. Nurse Christina was wonderful. She was attentive, honest and easy to get in touch with through the entire process (consultation to post op). Dr. Brahme was professional, non-judge mental and honest, he didn’t just tell me what he thought I wanted to hear, and I appreciate that.
The staff were friendly, helpful, and patient as I took the time to figure out the right size for my body. They gave me ample time to answer questions and help me try on sizes. I really liked that Dr. Brahme prioritized safety/fit over size and helped me choose the size that would work best with my frame.
Dr. Brahme and Cristina were very welcoming and genuinely care about my well-being. I am in my mid twenties and this is my first surgery. I was very nervous and asked a ton of questions. They never rushed me or made me feel like I was a burden on their time. They truly cared about my experience and put my nerves at ease. I have nothing but the utmost respect for both of them. They are so kind and patient! My experience was nothing but positive! I am still nervous about the procedure just because I have not had a surgery before but I know that I am in great hands! After our first two consultations, I cultivated so much trust for Dr. Brahme!
Dr. Brahms and his nurse Christina listened to what a wanted...very caring and helpful!
The staff was pleasant and accommodating. The doctor answered all my questions. I feel confident having my procedure done at LJCSC.
The staff made me feel very comfortable. I am insecure about my body and the procedure I am getting done is something that makes me very self conscious. During the consult I was almost in tears talking about it, but the Doctor and nurses made me feel very safe and reassured me that I’m not alone. I feel like I’m in very good hands and can’t wait for the surgery!
I always feel like Dr. Brahme and his staff listen to me and answer all my questions. I feel comfortable as they put my mind at ease and I feel like I am well taken care of. [Single best thing is...] I was extremely nervous going into breast reaugmentation after developing capsular contracture. Dr. Brahme did an amazing job and my breasts look really good!
Super friendly staff, everyone made me feel welcome from the first visit. Highly satisfied with my results.
Doctor is very personable. Doctor is very informative about procedure. I have been at the office before and trust the staff and doctors.
Dr. Brahme and his assistant were thoroughly informative and caring.
The doctor and his nurse Christina were warm and wonderful. The location within Scripps makes you feel very secure. The office is beautiful!! The doctor's enthusiasm and Christina's honesty and experience really made me happy. I wouldn't ever go anywhere else.
The staff were friendly and informative.
Although I basically knew what to expect, I was given knowledge of new innovation in a comfortable setting.
Very friendly and clean environment. The doctors provided excellent details in regards to what to expect as well as medications. Super attentive to any questions or concerns I had. Overall an extremely comfortable experience.
Explained the procedure and took time to listen to my concerns about the procedures.
This is a sensitive procedure and I appreciate the level of professionalism and how both Dr & nurse communicated direct and with intent. There was no beating around the bush or anything left up for interpretation. I left feeling educated and prepared to make a decision about the procedure
I felt listened to and confident in my decision.
Dr. Brahme and his nurse were very informative, sensitive to my needs and put me at ease. Rhiana was professional sweet and helpful. I am finally ready to do something I have been considering for many years!
The best part of my procedure is that I can see my eyes again!! My eye lids were drooping before the surgery, and now they are gorgeous again! I feel so blessed that I had the perfect doctor. I am so thrilled that everything went so perfect!! I absolutely love the outcome of my surgery. Dr. Brahme is a extraordinary surgeon. I would recommend Dr. Brahme, his nurse Cristina and their office, to everyone who would love to spend the rest of their life looking fabulous!!
I love nurse Christine. She is wonderful.
Dr Brahme did such a nice lift also.. and removed implants. Removed silicone that had been left in my right breast from a doctor that was supposed to remove ruptured implants and had put implants one above the muscle and the other was put under the muscle. I chose not to have implants put back in, so happy with my results.
Amazing service. He made sure I was happy with my breast size
Excellent work. The care that I received was so good! I never worried about my health or the work that was being done on me.
A love doctor brought me and Christina. Just feel good about the whole experience.
Very honest and professional opinion on what I need and don’t need. Everyone from the front desk to Dr. Brahme himself treated me very kindly. I am looking forward to getting my procedure this month!
Dr. Brahme is highly professional and a skilled physician. He also made me feel comfortable about this sensitive procedure. My results are amazing. The surgical staff and office staff were also very professional and at the top of their game in making sure everything went smooth, from my first appointment through my follow-up.
Wonderful results. Great doctor. Helpful, kind staff.
Dr. Brahme and his nurse Christina are highly skilled and experienced. Dr. Brahme's work was absolutely flawless while his nurse Christina gave the most useful and practical advice. She told me what I might experience and what to expect which aided in my swift recovery. This was my very first surgical procedure and I never once felt rushed or nervous because Dr. Brahme and Christina made sure I had all of my concerns addressed. Every staff member I encountered from the first day all the way through the weeks following my procedure were genuinely courteous and patient. I highly recommend Dr. Brahme as a brilliant surgeon.
The skin is very smooth. I have an awesome thigh gap now. I’ve noticed my running gait has improved a lot now that the extra skin and jiggle has been removed.
The people were pleasant. The office was clean and nice. and I didn't have a long wait before the appointment......
Dr. Brahme and Christina were very welcoming and sincere. I felt I was heard and solutions were offered. I was seen right away and did not have to wait long.
I am a return customer of Dr. Brahme. He did my first augmentation in 1995, I have had no issues until June of 2019, when I had to have them removed. Dr. Brahme, Christina and Teryn are always amazing to work with.
I loved how good everyone took care of me during and after the procedure and I couldn’t be happier with my results! I was very scared going into procedure day. I had never been put under or done anything like this before and I didn’t know what to expect, but the staff made sure to take really good care of me before and after.
I don t feel enough fat was taken off. My arms look the same and they were my cheif complaint
The staff was amazing and kind. Dr. Brahme was knowledgeable and professional. The surgery was very smooth and recovery went well.
Dr. Brahme was willing to drive home to pick up a highly effective ointment he rarely needs to use, but I have a few pesky sore openings from breast lift and it is helping. Dr. Brahme is always friendly and professional. I drive 2 hours each way to see Dr. Brahme, but it's worth it.
Everyone was wonderful and I felt quite comfortable.
Dr. Brahme and Christina were very personable. Appreciated follow-up exams and spa package. Healing well and so happy I had surgery.
I flew internationally to have Dr. Johan Brahme remove my implants which were leaking and replace them. At 73 we took a great risk. With nurse Christina’s aftercare I am recovering with unbelievable results. Dr. Brahme prepared me for a much more conservative outcome. He is a genius surgeon and expanded his time with me EVERY TIME I needed to see him before my flight overseas. [Single best thing is...] Synergy! The office staff from the moment you walk in to the surgical nurses to the after care to the preparation of what to expect works to reassure the patient that they will enjoy a positive and successful outcome. That is why I traveled over 4000 miles.
I walked into their office feeling so unhappy with myself. No confidence at all. Dr. B. and his team were so kind and professional. They understood exactly how I felt and what my goal was. They gave clear communication and answered all of my questions. After the surgery the care was the same...outstanding. I cry when I see myself in the mirror...I'm so overjoyed at the results. My confidence is back and I'm finally able to be the mom and wife I knew I could be. This is all a result of the wonderful team. I will be forever grateful to you. Best team hands down.
I had my breast implants removed with a breast lift. Dr. Brahme did a fantastic job. The surgery staff and admin staff are top notch. I’ve had several procedures done with LJCSC. I feel safe with them. [Single best thing is...] I hired the ultimate professional surgery center and felt confident they would take good care of me and give me the beat results.
All my questions were answered and met. The facility was clean, comfortable, and all staff was extremely personable and friendly. Nurse and doctor were very professional.
Dr. Brahme and his staff did everything to make me feel comfortable and made sure to answer all of my questions. I told him what look I wanted and he made it happen. He’s highly experienced in what he does.
It is scary to chose to have surgery when nothing is really wrong, you just want to look better. The whole process, before at consultation, the day of surgery/ recovery and post op went great. I knew what to expect thanks to thorough information from all involved. Doctors, nurses etc.
Doctor was very knowledgeable and through in his explanation. He spent a lot of time with me and explained the reason for the procedures I needed. His team was fantastic in helping with the administrative issues for my surgery.
Everyone I encountered was warm and friendly and made me comfortable.
DR. BRAHME AND TEAM MEMBERS WERE PROFESSIONAL. I DIDN'T FEEL LIKE I WAS JUDGED. I FELT CONFIDENT THE PROCEDURE WAS GOING TO TURN OUT WELL. [Single best thing is...] I KNEW I WAS GOING TO LOOK BETTER THAN BEFORE. I ENJOYED HOW SMOOTH THE SURGERY WENT. I GOT THE DAY I NEEDED TO HAVE THE SURGERY. I RECEIVED THE ATTENTION I WANTED AND MEDICATIONS AFTER THE PROCEDURE.
Dr. Brahme was very professional and caring. He asked me what I wanted, and went above and beyond my expectations. I am more than satisfied with the outcome of my second surgery through LJCSC. Dr.Brahme and Dr.Wheeler - you both are amazing surgeons.
Christina answered all of my questions and was very knowledgeable and informative. She has a wealth of information and made sure I know exactly what to expect. She carefully went over all of the details of preparing for the surgery and what to expect for the weeks following the procedure. She is highly relatable which made me feel very at ease. Her long relationship working with Dr. Brahme was also a great comfort. Karina took care of the financial portion and was very pleasant and helpful.
I was not able to wear pants for the last 3 years due to a large pubic area and lower abdomen. I can now wear pants and bathing suits. I am so grateful. It changed my life. [Single best thing is...] No pain whatsoever and a great doctor and staff.
Dr. Brahme and his team are incredible! Answered all questions and treated me with kindness, respect and you could feel their deep commitment to protecting and providing exceptional care, and detailed information on procedures, pre and post OP at their state of the art beautiful facility! Loved them!
I was pleased with my initial phone conversation where the gal asked what I was looking for in a doctor. When I stated that I wanted a doctor to listen well and understand why I wanted my implants removed. Dr.Brahme did exactly that. He made me feel safe and confident with my decision and very supported by him and his staff. He also gave me hope that I would still have pretty yet smaller breast after implants.
Everyone was super knowledgeable and comforting about the surgery I wanted. There was no pressure or rush on anything. Very easy and nice people to communicate with. I can’t wait to get my surgery!
Everyone was so nice and welcomed me here. [Single best thing is...] The nurse went over everything that was going to happen, that helped me a lot.
This is my second surgery with Dr. Brahme. He is wonderful and the staff and office are the best! Would highly recommend him to anyone and will only go here! [Single best thing is...] Went as explained, very thorough.
Excellent surgeon, Brahme. Everyone in office is courteous and knowledgeable. [Single best thing is...] I felt I was in the best hands possible.
I had a great consultation with Dr. Brahme! I went in nervous and came out reassured and really excited for my future surgery. Dr. Brahme and his nurse are a great team! Thanks for making me feel comfortable.
Great results. Great Doctor. Great staff.
My Dr., Christina and Riana are the best Great result :)
I felt like Dr. Brahme's nurse told me what I wanted to hear. Doesn’t seem as if her and the doctor were on the same page. Also was not happy with patient care provided on the day of procedure.
With my sensitive procedure request I felt accepted and my communication was heard. I felt comfortable and was well informed with a high level of support continuously. I feel more confident, and am no longer in pain or uncomfortable on a daily basis.
All the help were caring
Everyone from the check in staff to the nurse and doctor treated me with respect. They addressed my concerns as I’m a male to female person and they calmed my anxiousness
Very informative and caring. Options provided with visuals
Dr. Brahme is very honest and direct. He puts the patience interests first. He's done my 2 breast augmentations, rhinoplasty, tummy tuck and face lift.
They answered all my questions. They are very knowledgeable. They really listened.
The whole experience was a high class one working with La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center. The nurses were kind and took their time to make me understand the process and help me feel comfortable. Dr. Brahme clearly knows what he is doing and I trusted that he would make me look and feel the way that I wanted to. After surgery, my nurse reached out to me the day after and fairly often during the following weeks. I healed quickly and look great! I would highly recommend LJCSC to anyone who would be interested in cosmetic procedures.
After my consult with the doctor and his nurse (who were wonderful), I met with a woman in an office. She told me she would follow up with me and I have not heard from her since.
Dr. Brahme is very kind and truly listens to his patients about what can be achieved in surgery. He is highly skilled with experience. He gives you hope in his ability to improve your body and build your self esteem. He communicates very well and I did not feel hurried. Thank you Dr. Brahme!
Dr. did an Amazing Job. The Nurses and Everyone made me feel comfortable. They checked up on me multiple times during recovery.
Everyone made me feel confident I’d made the right choice. Everything felt seamless. I’m having my surgery in about an hour and feel comfortable. I appreciate their help in my breast revision.
Results. I am very satisfied with the results.
I was very happy with my body before, although I am glad that the stretch marks and pooch are gone, I also had tightening of the muscles, so I no longer have back pain. Overall, the staff, Dr. Brahme's bed side manner. Dr. Brahme did a great job on my tummy tuck, liposuction of the flanks and eye lid surgery. I'm happy so far with the results. I just hope that the numbness and tightness goes away and the scar will diminish with time, only issue was my belly button piercing wasn't removed and I have some dimpling on the ends of where the incision ends. Staff was very nice and helpful, including his nurse Christina.
The results were amazing, the staff was wonderful and the follow-up care was great. I got exactly the results I wanted and Dr. Brahme is very kind.
Dr. Brahme is an excellent surgeon. I was a little scared about how the scar would look like, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. The scar is super low and thin!
Dr. Brahme and his staff strive to make your experience a positive one. They check in on you before and after the surgery. If there are any extraordinary complications he will see you everyday if needed until everything is resolved. If he's not available he will make sure one of the other DR's see you. He has a pleasant demeanor and will always take the time to answer questions you may have. Doctors, Nurse and office staff are pleasant and work together as a team for the patients success.
Dr. Brahme and all the staff are amazing and professional. I have been coming to see Dr. Brahme since 1998 and will do so until he retires. I always recommend LJCSC to anyone interested in plastic surgery or treatments. I feel more confident and really happy with my appearance.
From my first visit, I felt like the staff knew what they were doing. Friendly & informative. I liked that the doctor called me at my hotel the night before to see if I had any questions. He also called me after and the nurses checked up on me frequently. Their costumer service is amazing. I felt very secure in my choice to have plastic surgery in this facility. [patient name]
This will be my second surgery with this office. They have always been amazing and I have referred many people to them.
Dr. Brahme was on time and 100% present during my visit. He was honest with my expectations and very open. He even showed me the operating room. He met with my teenage daughter and put her fears to rest. Christina was honest about recovery and showed me her scars and shared her experiences.
Dr. Brahme and staff are top notch
Very pleased with the level of service I received from start to finish. I highly recommend the Centre to anyone
My overall experience was better then I ever imagined! Thank you Dr. Brahame everything went smooth (: I went to sleep for a split sec and woke up with boobs! I felt Great right after. I went with Dr.Brahame because he has many experience in surgery procedures, I highly recommend. [patient name]. I loved the whole experience from start to finish. Best part was waking up after surgery not feeling a thing, it wasn't as scary as i thought. Dr.Brahame is my Favorite, great feeling knowing your going into surgery with someone experienced.
Felt extremely comfortable with everyone that helped us.
Everyone was so very nice. I felt like I was in good hands, and I felt that the doctor and staff genuinely cared about me. I love my results so far, and I know they are just going to get better as the swelling continues to subside. It was just a great experience overall, and I'll definitely have Dr. Brahme be the one doing my next procedures!
All my questions were answered. The staff was quick to get back to me. Packet given prior to surgery was very thourgh. The nurse that spoke to me at my pre-op appointment was so great with explaining things to me & answering questions regarding my surgery.
The operation did not take long, I never feel pain. I was confident it would be alright. The surgery really solve my problem. People surrounding me say I am younger and look better.
I have been a patient of Dr. Brahme in the past and have always been extremely satisfied with the results, professionalism of staff and environment. I plan on having the procedures very soon- see you soon!
Excellent bedside manner and professionalism. Extremely happy with my results.
Everyone has been so incredibly nice and friendly! I felt genuinely cared about, and I’m already recommending your practice to several of my friends who are wanting “mommy makeovers.” I’m still recovering from surgery, but everything has been phenomenal so far, and I cannot wait to see my final results!
I felt that all my questions were answered and I loved my anatomy lesson while waiting for the Dr.!
Overall I was satisfied with the experience. I would recommend the La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery center to a friend.
excellent and professional
Great customer service, everyone was extremely helpful and more than willing to answer all my questions.
Wonderful staff. Excellent surgeon and perfect results Feel better about my appearance and my clothes fit better
The staff’s bedside manner was excellent and very accommodating. They answered every question I had and discuss several options with me. I didn’t feel rushed like I sometimes do with appts with my own PCP.
Christina, Dr. Brahme and all other staff members are highly professional, personable and treat me like family. Dr. Brahme is an artist. He has given me guidance, confidence and assurance about the procedure. He has done miraculous work with each procedure. Staff follow-up and communication has been and is key to a healthy recovery. I recommend Dr Brahme, Christina et al to anyone considering a procedure.
The office environment was beautiful and the staff made my experience as a patient wonderful. They truly went above any beyond; the person picking me up from surgery had a 2y/o and the staff did absolutely everything possible to make sure they were prepared and comfortable in the wait room. They even called the day prior to surgery to tell me how cold the waiting room room can get and to ensure the little one had a jacket.
All of the staff at LJCSC were friendly, informative, and made you feel comfortable with every step of the process. I never had a doubt that the surgery would be successful and to my liking. They filled in for the confidence that lacks when the fear of the unknown is present. They reminded me of the amazing change that would come patience and made me feel at ease. I am so happy with my now 3 months post-op results and would recommend the surgery and the facility to all.
I like that the doctor took time to listen to me .. overall everything was a great experience
Dr. Brahme is a professional and honest doctor.
I've had 3 breast augmentations before and what I experienced at your facility I hadn't experienced before and that really resonated with me. So it is that reason I choose to remain a loyal patient and refer all my friends and associates to you.
The staff is very nice and helpful
Very satisfied with the information I received. Cost and recovery.
It was a pleasant experience. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable. I didn’t feel judged for wanting a procedure.
I was really at ease with the professionalism of the staff. Dr. Brahme was patient and answered all my questions. I felt like the Dr. Really cared about my medical history wants and needs. I felt like he is interested in helping me have a procedure that will be safe before vanity. I feel very comfortable that he will choose what is right for my breast augmentation.
Very Professional staff and Surgeon. Surgeon had calming demeanor and made me feel comfortable and at ease. At the same time provided answers to my questions and presented his opinion/recommendations for procedures.
I paid an appreciable amount of money for my procedure. I was briefed thoroughly as to what what to expect prior and post surgery. I followed through with my post operative recommendations to the best of my ability. I was informed that due to my particular about of physical activity that my post surgical swelling might last longer than the average patient. That in mind, I feel that my swelling has not subsided to my expectations. When referencing my current pre and posit surgical photos, I am not impressed with the results. I am holding out hope that my physical appearance improves, but at this time I don't feel the results were worth the money. In fact, at this time I feel the results might in fact look worse than when I started. I expected far more significant results. I am hopeful that in time my appearance improves. If it does not significantly improve within the next few months, I will be requesting a revision. This is my personal opinion, and I do not wish it to reflect upon the previous or current experiences of other patients.
The staff was very friendly and approachable. Dr. Brahme was the only doctor in La Jolla who gave me innovative technique during the consultation. At that moment, I knew I had found the right doctor and I knew was in good hands right from the beginning. All of my questions were answered by Christina. Riana Murphy was able to schedule my operation date immediately after my consultation in order to achieve desired results by my birthday celebration. My breast augmentation looks completely natural and I'm line with my height and body composition. I have found new self confidence in myself post operation.
Dr. Brahme listened carefully to everything that I wanted done, and he took his professional opinion as well as my personal opinion and my needs a priority. I love the way it made my body look. It made me look super propositional! My boobs are exactly what I wanted in every way possible.
Everyone was extremely nice and the Dr. was honest about his likes and dislikes about the procedures I was inquiring about.
The staff and nurses and Dr.Brahme were amazing. Always there for me for any questions or concerns and my surgery came out amazing! I feel all around better about my appearance and feel beautiful again!
Excellent results! Dr. Brahme did an amazing job! He is very knowledgeable and answered all my questions/concerns. His nurse Christina was so helpful, honest and made me feel at ease through the entire process. The entire staff was kind and professional. Thank you!
Have been a patient of the practice since it’s inception. Wouldn’t think of going elsewhere for cosmetic surgery..
Everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable. Made me really comfortable and answered all my questions and concerns.
Wonderful caring staff & DR. !!!
The surgeon, the staff, the facility and the results are all top notch.
Not there yet. Absolutely LOVE Dr. Brahme & Christina.. They've always made me feel like family.. I completely trust them & feel safe in their hands.
I walked in with little confidence when I came to wearing a swim suit. Now I feel like I look hot in a swim suit. After breast feeding two kids, I felt like I deserved to have my boobs look like they did before kids. Now they look even better then that.
I was very scared to do a breast aug because I liked my breasts the way they were but wanted them a little bigger. I chickened out of my breast aug last year and almost did again this year. If it wasn't for the nurse Cristina's honest care and ability to hear my concerns and validate my feelings I probably would have not gone through with it and forfeited another deposit! She assured me I would get exactly what I wanted and she would be in the room with Dr. Brahme to give a second opinion before deciding what was best. I couldn't be more happy! Everyone at the office was incredibly patient with me including Dr. Brahme! He is the absolute best at what he does!!
I was treated with kindness and respect throughout the entire consultation process. All administrative and medical staff provided me with thorough and easy to understand information and explanations.
Dr Brahme did an amazing job and listening to all my thoughts and concerns before the surgery. He made me feel very comfortable and so did his staff. I have more confidence and I feel more comfortablewith my body
The results are great! I feel better how I look.
I was highly satisfied!!
I am extremely pleased with the kindness of not only the doctor but all of the staff. They all made this a wonderful experience for me. . I didn't think arm lift surgery is as common as the many other surgeries and I had lots of questions. Dr Brahme and his nurse Christina answered all of my questions thoroughly and really made me feel at ease. They explained what would take place pre-surgery, during surgery and post surgery. This really made me comfortable with my decision and very importantly with them as well. The surgery went fantastic! I received a telephone call from Dr Brahme himself that evening to see how I was doing. I have received the same support and kindness at my follow-up appointments. My surgery was two months ago and I couldn't be happier with my experience as well as the results!
The staff, office and Dr were all very nice and knowledgeable I just felt the Dr was not the right it for me.
The experience of staff and making me feel comfortable
Loved the attention to detail and how thorough everything was, felt like I was a part of the family from the beginning!
From my first phone conversation with Karla Watson to meeting Nurse Cristina Lindstrom, and all through my consultation with her and Dr. Brahme I felt as though I was amongst friends. Their attention and warmth were beyond my expectation. All my questions were addressed and answered to satisfaction, my fears relieved and I left with the feeling of time well spent.
Beautiful look, take good care of patients
Professional. Experienced. Confident.
The consultation I had at LJCSC was very complete. From the nurse to the doctor to the patient coordinator, all my questions were answered and then some. The staff are extremely knowledgeable in all areas...pre-op, post-op, pain mgmt., finance...anything you can think of to ask, they have the answers.
The environment at LJCSC is so nurturing ... I looked forward to all of my follow-up appointments! Every bit of my experience was professional, positive and friendly. Dr. Brahme and the nurses put me at ease from consultation to pre-op to post-op. Thank you LJCSC!
In every way!!! Every person was respectful, interested, kind, thoughtful, OUTSTANDING!In my long life with over 20 surgeries and MANY doctors....this was the most awesome experience of the best treatment, best care, best medical staff, that I ever had.... I actually got tears in my eyes because I won't be seeing them. They made me feel that they all sincerely cared about me. I have never had such an experience with every member of the staff. And my doctor is a spectacular and sincere and talented man. I thank everyone and will keep their intentions in my prayers always.
It has boosted my self-esteem, given me better confidence in my appearance. Everyone is personable and plenty of time is given. I never felt like any of the staff was in a big hurry to move on. Things are explained extremely well, with written instructions to take home.
Office staff very friendly and informative. the clinic runs on time. the staff and physicians are very knowledgeable and do great work! Really changed my life love my new breast implants and flat tummy. Amazing!!
Christina, Dr Brahme are a perfect team. The surgery is exactly what I wanted and needed. The results are better than I expected and I would rely on Dr. Brahme for any surgical procedures in the future. LJCSC rocks! The entire office staff are first class. My clothes fit again! I am confident wearing anything. My attitude about my body and life in general is positive.
Mostly the results which were amazing! Scars are healing better than expected, and I couldn't be happier with my new body! Dr Brahme is a literal artist, the best in his field I'm sure! The results were exactly what I expected, if not better!
Referrals and staff
staff overall hands on
Everyone took the time to explain the procedures and answer my questions. This listened to my concerns. I did not feel rushed during consultation. They talked about alternatives.
My results! Christina is absolutely fantastic. She was available for me if I had questions and was very caring throughout the process. Dr Brahme is very friendly and professional and has great communication skills. Pleasure doing business with his center.
The doctor & staff really make you feel comfortable. Dr Brahme and Cristina listened to my concerns, answered all questions and really made it a comfortable & relaxing consultation.
Love Dr. Brahme, Christina, Yvette, Janelle, and the entire staff. Respect and kindness abound.
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.
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.
Dr. Brahme and I were on the same page right from the get go. He showed me a before and after picture of my nose, and it was exactly what I wanted.
I have been coming to LJS since 95 when it was in LJ on Prodpect (Dr Saltz). I love everything about this practice, especially the doctors (Saltz and Brahme) and nurses ( Ruthie and Christina). Over the years I have referred family and friends. The procedures have been perfect and exceeded my expectations.
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.
dr. brahme and dr. haas were incredible and i really felt connected to my post-op nurse, sarah? i was soooooo scared and all went just smooth as could be :)
Cristina is amazing! She shared so many helpful tips and suggestions. Dr. Brahms is also extremely supportive and kind.
The surgeon displayed his knowledge very well, he was patient, and he made me feel very comfortable. His staff were just as amazing, as well.
Dr. Brahme performed my initial breast augmentation surgery 20 years ago. He did such an excellent job the first time, I didn't think twice about locating him again for my revision surgery. Trust is an important thing to me. You have to trust that your surgeon is willing to listen to you and your needs and advise you when necessary. I knew Dr. Brahme would take great care of me and you can't put a price on that. He is worth his weight in Gold. I highly suggest him for your surgery needs. You will not regret it. The results are beyond what I imagined. After 7 weeks post op, you can barely see the scars from the revision, which was my main concern.
Great Hospitality and amazing care. The staff is very welcoming and makes a comfortable enviornment to be in! It is all great! the scarring is barely noticable.
Professional, friendly, informative staff
great results!very friendly staff.
Dr. Brahme & his staff were all extremely helpful and kind. They answered all of my questions and gave my all of the information I needed and more. I left there feeling completely confident that he would do a fantastic job. I will highly recommend him to anyone looking for any type of plastic surgery.
Everything was perfect great people awesome costumer service Yes I feel more secure and beautiful
Dr was amazing and so was the staff! I went in insecure and left feeling most beautiful than ever with confidence.i highly recommend him! I feel so much better about my self!
everyone showed me how much care and concern they had the whole time..before and after surgery... so happy with LJCSC...THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!! feel beautiful!@ age 63..everyone tells me i look like im in my 40s....
The experience was awesome. They took me in at the last minute when I was downstairs for a follow up visit with Dr Brahme. The office was extremely professional and friendly.
Dr. Brahme and Christina are excellent. They made me incredibly comfortable and at ease. They were patient, kind and genuine and answered all my questions fully. I like them both immediately and felt like I was in great hands.
I was highly satisfied overall but there were minor set backs to my experience that made it slightly less than perfect.
Everyone was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I always felt very comfortable and not pressured.
Dr. Brahme, Christina and the OR team were amazing! From my consult to the post-op process, I was very impressed. I am a registered nurse and they explained everything in detail and left me with no unanswered questions. I was most happy when Dr. Brahme personally called me the same evening of my procedure and the day after to check on how I was doing. If I were to have another procedure, I would be back with Dr. Brahme and his team 100%!
Everyone and everything was great!No surprises at all.Very professional group!
I would like to have seen more options for my rhinoplasty. I was just given a picture of what it would look like with no other options
Feeling more womanly and confident! Your staff is friendly and personable. I am always greeted by a welcoming front desk personand offered parking validation. The waiting area is comfortable, but luckily I never have to wait long for my appointments. Dr. Brahme and his nurses were polite and worked with my best interest in mind. I am extremely satisfied with my surgical results and the offered after care.
The staff were very friendly, helpful and professional. The surgeon was also very informative, patient in answering my questions, and had a warm bedside manner. He performed my last surgery and I have every confidence in him. He is phenomenal!
I was extremely satisfied with Dr. Brahme and his staff. They were very professional and I felt comfortable during my consultation to be able to express what I was looking for. I particularly found Dr. Brahme's candidness to be refreshing. He explained what was and wasn't doable with regards to the structure of one's face and features. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome. I have total confidence in Dr. Brahme and his staff and will return for future visits as needed.
I've always been confident in my looks and body, however this procedure made me happy about my looks. I am literally happier every day. I honestly can't say enough good things about my experience and results. I felt so comfortable and safe. My healing experience went so smoothly and I credit it all to the support of my docter and nurses.Dr. Brahme is an artist, I could not have dreamt of better results.
The staff listen to my plans, concerns and played a vital role in my decision. Everybody there made me feel very comfortable and I knew I could count on if I needed anything before and after the surgery.The staff responded quickly to my voicemails emails and Terxt messages.
I wasn't nervous at all because I was 100% sure they had me as a #1 priority even after the surgery and that there was a trauma nurse in the room during my surgery. I had searched around for a surgery center and doctor for motnhs before deciding on La Jolla Surgery Center. I honestly wouldn't have chosen any where that I felt uncomfortable in any way and this place really gave me a good vibe and hospitality. I loved that they called every day for a week after my surgery to make sure I was okay!
Dr Brahms, Christina and the rest of the staff were extremely professional and delightful to work with prior to and after my procedure. They made the entire procedure less stressful and answered all questions I had. I knew I was in great hands during the consultation and recommend Dr Brahms to all my friends! I am definitely more confident with my body after the procedure. I feel more proportioned and love how natural they look and feel. Would do it all over again!
I am very happy to have my labia plasty done. Although it's not exactly how I expected it still makes a significant difference in my life. During my first follow up through my second and third, the tape on my breasts caused severe irritation and delayed healing significantly. One nurse said left it and pat dry , one removed it and said only wash with dove, one said never use dove, one said use dial. I felt as if I got extremely mixed information and that my doctor did not care about the severity of the unsealed areas of my lift scars, they took forever to close up and because they repeatedly stuck to tape, gauze and my bra I have scared badly. My labia plastic I know the results differ and the doctors do what they can that's medically safe, however I was told it would looked closed all they way , it does not and I still have excess uneven tissue on one side. Over all this has been a pretty disappointing outcome mostly myou breasts I expected much more .
It was my second time having cosmetic surgery at the La Jolla surgery center with Dr BRAHME . I loved it the first time and loved my second time results. He is simply very talented surgeon , attentive to your needs and you get exactly what you ask. His team is also wonderful !
I absolutely am satisfied my surgery went wonderful through from day 1 I was recommended and not let down I'm so happy with the results hands down an amazing Doctor
The staff and Doctor were very friendly and informative.
Less wrinkles! The staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. Because I had a consultation and than a procedure done my wait time was very long. However, I'm willing to come back again with just a appointment with no consultation.
I am a return patient. So my first experience was excellent and the result I loved ! Exactly what I have wanted and very natural which was my biggest concern. I have 3 friend that have done same procedures with dr. BRAHME and all very happy. They listen and support your new look you going for. Just a great team!
I was greeted quickly and brought to an exam room. There my concerns were listened to and I felt very comfortable. The doctor provided me with different options and was able to share with me his own opinion of which procedure would give me the best overall outcome.
They were there when I needed them. With information, kindness, and always very perfusion all.
Every step of my procedure was discussed in details and met my expectations . Great expertise and great communication
I liked the fact that there were no surprises in post surgery. Every possible question is answered and what to expect is laid out in days, weeks , and months. This was so comforting for me during the healing process. . The staff and entire office experience from the beginning created a warm and welcome feeling.Everyone was caring, thorough, professional, and truly beyond exceptional! I felt complete confidence under the care of LJCSC , especially Dr. Brahme, and I am so happy with my results.
I was disappointed......because the Dr. Said it was in a very bad area to try to fix. And he did not want to try because it might make it worse..It made me want to cry. He did however give me the name of a place that handled this sort of messed up procedure. I have made an appt. With them. I appreciated his honesty.
Dr Brahme and his nurse Cristina are wonderful. The staff and surgeon are extremely kind and professional. I feel like I got more than my money's worth and would recommend any friend or family member to have work done there.
My cousin had cosmetic surgery performed by Dr, Brahme, and loved the outcome, looked naturally.
I feel confident wearing bathing suits and fitted tops. I have no complaints about my experience would recommend to friends and family.
I have more confidence and I'm very pleased how I look in clothes. The staff, office, surgery center and Dr Brahme were extremely professional and kind. I had a great experience and outcome.
He made my body look better than ever. I have the body I wish I had years ago. Dr. Brahme is an excellent Surgeon. He fixed previous work, with results better than I could have anticipated. I wish I would have known about him years ago. It would have saved me much grief. He is also very kind, and professional. I healed beautifully!
Dr Brahme Is a skilled surgeon who also exhibits exceptional patient care. After having a neck lift I no longer feel the need to wear scarves or hide my neck. I feel and look younger !
I'm a happier person with my new nose and have a new found confidence inside as well as on the outside. Dr Brahme did a beyond excellent job on my nose. The nurses and staff were so nice and easy to talk to. I had the best experience I could have ever imagined!
i love how the staff treated me. After searching for the right surgeon I feel confident that I've picked the right one for my procedure.
No one likes getting older and somethings about your face bothers you more than others. I was beginning to feel self-conscious and with this mini facelift my confidence level was brought back to normal. Dr Brahme met with me and listen to my concerns; he explained everything about my surgery in detail perfectly. I was extremely happy with the outcome, his pre and post op care as well as the care of his entire surgical team. I have had plastic surgery in the past and was very satisfied but Dr Brahme hit it out of the ballpark.
I found myself wearing scarves and high collared shirts to hide my aging neck. At 51, I felt great, but noticed that my neck and jawline were diminishing. Three months post op, I am happy with the results and highly recommend the DR. who performed my surgery (Dr. Brahme). After doing extended research on the various practices and surgeons throughout San Diego, I decided to consult with Dr. Brahme. He and his staff were extremely knowledgeable, professional, and thorough. I decided to have a neck lift, and from start to finish, I felt informed, comfortable and respected. I am pleased with the results and highly recommend Dr. Brahme, his wonderful nurse (Christina), and the entire staff at LJCSC!
Staff was top notch. Not only was the procedure done beautifully but the staff made my experience feel 5 star!
Dr Brahme was very professional and wonderful at explaining to me my different options and what he knew was best for me. I felt very confident with his decisions.
The staff was extremely knowledgeable and based on the results I wanted to achieve, explained everything they could do to get me as close as possible to what I was looking for.
This was a great consultation and made me feel very comfortable with the procedure I'd like. I was able to talk about all the concerns I had regarding my previous surgery and what needed to be fixed and the best part was I didn't feel rushed with the doctor. He took plenty of time with me, not so much hands on my nose time, but I assume someone who does these procedures all the time knows a lot just by looking and asking all the right questions. The nurse was also a sweetheart and made me feel VERY welcomed talking about Sweden and how she knew the doctor. I feel a great rapport with the staff and the one woman, Jessica, who followed up with me the whole time was amazing. Super friendly and patient and very accommodating. Without her emailing me (instead of calling, cause we kept playing phone tag) I most likely wouldn't have actually made the appointment).
EVERYONE I had the pleasure of interacting with was polite, engaging, friendly and answered any questions or concerns that I had. If they didn't know the answer, they found the answer. I will definitely refer the practice to friends!
Yes. Dr. Brahme was very professional and kind and took the time to answer all of my questions in detail and to explain my options.
The surgery was a complete success, and the outcome was better than I had hoped for! I healed very quickly, and no complications. I look younger and less 'tired' and feel a lot better about myself. . Dr. Brahme and his staff were awesome in every aspect of the surgerical experience, starting from the initial consultation, through the all the post-op visits.
After my initail consultation I felft at ease to have this done. the whole staff/office mde m feel comforatble/safe with my decision to have these procedres done
I now have a figure I had at 20 (I'm now 53!). . Loved Dr. Brahame and his nurses. Will definitely recommend his services to my friends. Great experience!
I thought that the first treatment/procedure was more effective then the 2nd treatment. Staff was professional and friendly. Procedure was explained fully and any questions I had were answered.
The natural look of my breasts. Everyone takes the time to answer question and provides answers. They are all very polite and treat you with respect.
Feel more confidant about my apearance. The entire staff was friendly made me feel at ease with my proceedures
The entire staff is very helpful and pleasant!
I don't have to clean around the fold of skin that hung over my belly. I don't have to move the fold of skin to shave, or exercise, or move it around under my clothes. I bought my first bikini in 40 years. I dont feel shame now when I put on a bathing suit, or when I get a massage. I am wearing clothes that are fitting, and I'm wearing dresses, which I never did before. I can do yoga poses now that I couldn't do before because the extra skin was in the way. I love getting dressed in the morning and I don't hate going to costume parties because I had to deal with finding an outfit that would fit me and would look flattering. Having this surgery (belt lipectomy) has changed my life! I have never been this small (even as a teen at this weight). I feel so blessed and I am so grateful to have a body that is fit and healthy and reflects how I care for myself (eating healthy, exercising, getting enough rest, etc). Life is good! The staff and Dr. Brahme were all patient, and listened to my questions and concerns. Staff was very responsive. The care I received was excellent and I am very pleased with the outcome from the surgery. It has been a very positive experience.
Looking amazing after! The level of experience and expertise combined with the friendliness of everyone involved (from front office to surgeon) made me feel very comfortable with my decision to have surgery.
Dr. Brahme and all the staff were extremely easy to work with and Dr. Brahme made himself available for an extra preop visit to discuss my case further. He helped me make a good choice of what would benefit me most. Overall I was very pleased with the result, although I would have liked a little more tissue to have been removed in the blepharoplasty, as I still have more overhang than I like. Am also finding the scarring in front of one of my ears more prominent and visible than expected at 9 weeks. Hopefully, this will improve more with time.
It was a great experience. I was extremely grateful for all the pre-op instructions and what to expect, especially the emotional feelings I would encounter, how I will look after surgery and what short and longer term physical effects. I am happy with my results.
I had never really given much thought to Vaginal Rejuvenation before. I searched the internet out of curiosity, and came across Dr. Brahme here locally. And when I came in I learned all about it and I am very excited to go through with it sometime later in the year. :)
THE OFFICE WAS SO NICE AND COMFORTING FROM THE DR, ALL THE NURSES AND OFFICE CORDINATOR MADE ME FEEL THAT THIS WAS THE RIGHT PLACE TO HAVE MY SURGERY
Everyone, dr, nurse, office coordinator all made me feel comfortable
Anyone contemplating having a mommy makeover really should do it. I was close to the best weight I have ever been, but having that extra skin removed and the breasts lifted has made my confidence soar, and mine wasn't low to begin with! Dr. Brahme REALLY knows how to bring out your best shape, and does an excellent job in surgery!! He really sculpted out the best shape I have ever had, and I had no idea I could have ever looked this sexy!!! Dr Brahme was clearly able to envision what I had in mind and the results are even better than I thought they would be! Any time I had a question or concern, I was able to get in touch with the office and it was addressed quickly. It was less painful than I thought it would be and the scar will be very smooth! Around the nipples you can already hardly see it and I am only 7 weeks out!!
everyone from the doctor, nurse, office staff made me feel comfortable about my decision to have my surgery and after my surgery everyone was very helpful and made sure i was taken care of and looked after
Enjoying a better appearance with no artificial look.. All persons were as highly professional as possible. Dr. Brahme and his staff may well be the best in the country.
Everyone at LJCSC was professional, caring, friendly, and accessible, all of which are important to me and other clients, I'm sure.
This is my second surgery with Dr Brahme. I love his work, it looks very natural.
caring staff, talented doctor
I'm so happy with my breastfeeding augmentation, after feeling and looking very confident about myself for years I had 3 beautiful daughters and chose to do what I felt was best for them and breastfed them. After that my feelings that I did the right thing for my girls never changed but to look at what had happened to my breasts my self-esteem had gone down the tubes. I felt like I had been given cow udders. Dr Brahme and every staff member was there through everything is went through. You experience highs and lows. After having extra skin that was full and now just saggy it's a little shock to see and feel them the way you once were. Right after you are swollon. It's a big shock, but his staff listened to me cry letting me know that would go away. I couldn't be happier, I did it for me. And I know I was in the best hands. Love them all.
The nurse did a thorough walk through and answered a lot of my questions. The doctor then followed up with additional information.
Dr. Brahme is a top-notch Plastic Surgeon and in my opinion, the best doctor in town for any type of cosmetic surgery. He listened to my needs/concerns and is one of the nicest people I know. Dr. Brahme's long-time nurse, Christina, is also fantastic and they make a great team. Everyone I have had some type of experience with there, from the front desk receptionists, to schedulers, nurses and skin care staff (upstairs) are truly wonderful, experienced people. Love them all!
I am completely satisfied with my experience at Dr. Brahme's office because of the results of my surgery. I met with a few doctors before meeting with Dr. Brahme. Leaving the other offices, I felt nervous and less confident I would get the results I was hoping for. As soon as we met with Dr. Brahme, my husband and I both knew he would be the doctor to do my surgery. We were fully confident that we had made the right choice with him. He was so sweet and took his time answering all of our questions. He was so detailed and even knew our background info. He is such a sweet man and had the best bed side manner. My results are amazing!!! My breasts look great!!!! Better than I could of hoped for!!!!!
I am a returning patient of many years and have confidence in Dr. Brahme
Dr. Brahme and Christina are always engaged and forthcoming with as much information as possible. I also appreciate the touch screen display for reference.
Felt very safe and happy with outcome
Christine is an amazing nurse. During this process I felt like I was correcting a problem of mine but after Christine I felt like I was just enhancing myself rather than there being something wrong " with me, she is very helpful and honest. She sells the practice for dr. Brahme and I am glad she is the first person I got to meet."
From the moment we (my mother and I) walked through the door we were greeted with smiles and positive attitudes. They were professional, courteous, and extremely accommodating. I'm considering changing a facial feature, which is a huge deal, and Dr. Brahme and his team made me confident in my decision.
Still awaiting to see my complete results from the surgery.
My experience at Ljcc was amazing !Dr. Brahme was the best . I love my new Breast, he was so great , and walked me thru the entire process and my nurse Christina was amazing as well . This whole place is so wonderful , they are all so friendly and helpful . I really felt super comfortable there .
Answered every question with honesty and confidence. Made me feel very comfortable about sensitive and very private topic. Spent as much time with me as I needed. Felt important and not rushed. Have confidence in surgeon and his staff.
The entire process was something I saved up for and looked forward to for a very long time. I was impressed with the entire process start to finish. Have already recommended Dr. Brahme to 2 close friends.
Because the results were not oversold. The confidence I gained from consulting with Lauren Reed, Christina and Dr Brahme was what I needed to get this done. Dr Brahme restored my jawline and neck without changing my look. Couldn't be happier.
The staff is great.
Dr. Brahme and his staff were great. They all took the time to answer all my questions and were very caring and friendly. Dr. Brahme is an excellent doctor. He does wonderful work.
I did it during my lunch hour. The procedure was so easy and painless. I was able to resume normal activities that same day and noticed results in less than a week. Dr. Brahme and Cristina made me feel very comfortable. I plan on having a second procedure soon.
The results of my tummy tuck is amazing. Dr. Brahme has also performed my last two breast augmentations. Both I have been very satisfied with. I increased the implant size on my last enhancement and I couldn't be happier with the results. I highly recommend Dr. Brahme.
The doctor and staff were very friendly and made me feel like I was one of their family members being taken care of. Before my surgery they helped me take care of my doctor while talking to the doctor that showed me that they are very caring. I was so happy with my results and very satisfied with my mommy make over.
One breast appears larger then the other and I was told to wait for a few months until the breast settle in. I was told to continue to exercise daily and I do.
Everyone was very kind, helpful, professional and capable. The anesthesia was excellent. The post op instructions and medications addressed my every need. When I had any questions or concerns they were dealt with promptly and efficiently. This allowed me to focus on recovering with as little anxiety as possible, knowing I was in good hands. Dr. Brahme is the best; I've had so many compliments! His warm, congenial and elegant style, his expertise and skill, are greatly appreciated. His nurse Cristina is a gem; full of great tips and kind support.
Dr. Brahme did an amazing job on my daughter's nose. So much so that my husband is schedule with Dr. Brahme in October for the same procedure.
Everything! From consultation to procedure to recovery. Everyone in the office is so nice and helpful. A calming and more than satisfying experience. Dr braume is highly skilled and made my body dreams a reality!!!!
I pretty much said it all in the last section. I just wish Dr. Brahme listened to me and wanted to fix the problem. I spent all that I had on this surgery and cant go to another surgeon to have it fixed....
I was very impressed with Dr. Brahme and his assistant Christina on my very first visit. I had already met with another surgeon prior to coming to La Jolla Cosmetic Center, and I was happy I switched and ended up having the procedure with Dr. Brahme. One thing that really impressed me was the first initial visit was free, the other surgeon required payment, and that Dr. Brahme used a large screen to show me exactly what he could do for me. I looked through a book of the before and after photo's of women who had undergone the labiaplasty, and when I wanted the barbie" look, he told me the truth, that I had too much skin, instead of telling me yes and then being disappointed after the surgery. I really respected that, and knew right away I wanted to be his patient!! "
Dr. Brahme is an experience plastic surgeon. I previously had a major surgery with him. I trust his knowledge and counseling. The staff is professional and office environment is always inviting and clean.
This is my second surgery with Dr. Braume him and his staff is just wonderful I fill completely comfortable and love them so much they truly make you feel important and cared for. My only complaint is the after hour phone service that customer services was horrible but has not reflection on the dr or his staff that lady just needs to find a job she appreciates!
I am return patientI had done some procedures few years agoI did refer some friends
Gosh I don't even know where to begin... The whole experience and procedures went so smoothly and the results were so beautiful I couldn't even believe it myself... I'm still healing so I still have some swelling but already there is so much improvement and I'm so comfortable and happy with the results.. I'm 62 and have been so afraid to do this for a long time I wished I had it done at 30 years ago... But now I feel I have a new lease on life I can go to the beach play sports, and all the other things I feel I've been missing out on... I had a tummy tuck and a little life is suction on the size and the hips and around the back and a fat injection to my calf from burn scar... My bellybutton is beautiful the skin is healing well and the scar is amazingly almost perfect... Dr. Brahme , Christina his nurse, and Karla his financial advisor we're just really the best. The doctor told me that the fat injection to the scar burn might not be perfect but over time we could continue to inject small amounts of fat to get it how I like....so pleased
Dr Brahme is awesome!
Dr. Brahme does excellent work! My facelift is very natural looking, I could not be more pleased with the results. I would definitely choose him as my surgeon for any future work. Christine, his nurse assistant is wonderful and made sure I was comfortable and well informed throughout the entire pre-op and post-op process. The entire staff at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre have been professional, friendly and accommodating. Thank you!
very professional, surgery results were superboffice atmosphere of all the staff...friendly, welcoming
The staff and Dr. answered all of my questions. I would possible schedule with this Dr. but need to see other Doctors before making a decision. The cost seemed a little high.
The staff was very friendly & informative & made us feel very comfortable & listened to what I wanted my outcome to look like & did exactly that. I was very happy with the results & have already recommended them to friends.
Dr Brahme and his staff made me feel so comfortable from the minute I walked in the office. Everything was explained very clearly and they helped me choose the best option for what I was looking for. I couldn't be happier... Just wish I hadn't waited so long to do it!
I love the customer service, I love how you guys will work with your patients. I do have to build my credit up, I do wish they can work with me a little more. Overall Dr. brahme was very nice and understanding. Made me feel special and my thoughts are very important! Thank you DR ! I will be seeing you soon as soon as I get my credit score where it needs to be.
Everything was perfect.
Everyone at Dr. Brahme's office are fantastic, professional and personable. They always take their time and are considerate of their clients needs. I enjoy walking in and being greeted with a warm smile and enjoyable conversation. It's always a pleasure to be in the company of knowledgeable, professional and personal individauals. Thank you for being beautiful from the inside out!
I had multiple procedures done at the same time. Everything was explained in detail. Stayed overnight and was visited by Dr. Brahme and Cristina the next day. Recovery was better than expected!!!! I am so happy!
Dr Brahme did a great job with my reconstruction. I have been needing to get this done for a while and I'm glad I decided to stick with him.
When meeting with any of the team from Dr. Brahme, his nurse Kristen or any of the other nurses I never once felt hurried or rushed and felt that they had my well fare as their first concern. They kept on schedule with appointment times, were always pleasant and repeatedly said I could contact them 24/7 if I felt I need to
Straight talk about possible procedural options. Answered all of our questions. Very comfortable with treating physician and staff. However, probably won't have procedure performed due solely to age/cost considerations. Would certainly recommend surgeon to others in future.
Great overall interaction. Felt very comfortable with surgeon and staff and feel they would handle my procedure with precision and respect.
From being greeted to helping me with what would be best for me I was very comfortable with my decision in selecting La Plastic Surgery to perform my neck lift. The staff was highly trained with working with patients and genuinely cared about me.
Dr. Brahme was very thorough in showing me what my surgery would look like afterwards, which is what I was hoping for. The last surgeon did not do this for me.
Everyone at the practice was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
Everyone at the office staff and doctors were friendly and informative. I felt very comfortable with my exams and treatment.
I am still considering which procedure to have. Am trying to stay away from surgery just yet. Not sure other options will make a noticeable difference.
Dr. Brahme and his staff are very compassionate and caring. Additionally, someone has always been available to answer questions when I call the office and offer reassurance if I have concerns. During appointments, the nurses and Dr. Brahme spend as much time with me as I need. They truly believe in patient satisfaction! I am a repeat patient and am, once again, very pleased with my results. Would personally recommend Dr. Brahme without hesitation.
Friendliness of staff and nurses and atmosphere of office.
The professionalism, friendliness, courtesy, and knowledge of the staff from the beginning to the end.
Everyone makes me feel so special and at home! I love coming to this office! All are professional yet kind! I wouldn't go anywhere else!
Dr Brahme and his nursing staff were kind, helpful, professional with me. They answered all my questions; they were particularly attentive to me when I expressed a concern, and wanted to ensure that I was feeling good. They called everyday up to a week after the surgery to check my status. Very appreciative that they did. There are 2 things I wish I was more informed about prior to surgery: 1) the possibility of pruritus post-surgery and recommended treatment and 2) more information about the type of bra support I was supposed to wear. But, overall, the experience was very good and my husband and I are happy with the results.
This was a very well planned procedure. The doctor and his nurses had my complete trust with the operation, the process was so smooth I was not worried at all. Very clean, helpful practice with great surgeons and nurses.
DR. Brahme did a surgery on me approx. 9 years ago. He fix a breast problem I had before, done by another surgeon.
Customer service is impeccable and Excellent!
Everyone has been very nice and answered all of my questions and concerns.
I don't feel like I got the results I was expecting and wanting. I feel my nose is much larger than I wanted and discussed with the doctor.
Well informed with the continued assurance that I would be well taken care of.
from the time I walked in tothe office I was highly satisfied everybody made it a goal to make me feel comfortable and welcome they were completely helpful and answered every question I had they even calmed me down when I was nervous when it was time to have surgery I would definitely come back if I ever decided to have another surgery and I have already recommended them to several people
Dr. Brahme was highly recommended to me by someone else who had performed a procedure on my skin. She personally took me to meet the doctor and his staff. He had also performed a face/neck lift on her mother and showed me detailed before and after photos. Dr. Brahme and his staff are very professional, helpful, friendly, and thorough. I felt completely at ease and confident about the procedure. They explained the pre and post op steps to the nth degree. They encouraged me to call if I had any questions before or after the surgery. They also followed up by calling me after the surgery. The anesthesiologist was excellent and addressed all my issues and concerns since I am a Type 1 diabetic. I am highly pleased with my results and would not hesitate to have the doctor perform surgery on me in the future. I have recommended him to friends and one of them just had her surgery today. All my comments are highly positive!!
The options reviewed. Also, I had surgery at this office 11 years ago and was pleasantly surprised by how willing surgeon(s) were to say what I did not need as well as what they would recommend.
I was well educated on what to expect on all aspects of the procedure..... There were no surprises anywhere along the way....It was as pleasant as surgery could be with what I wanted to have done. My expectations were not over inflated nor was I patronized by the staff. If you need or want to have a cosmetic surgery this is the place to go. You are treated with dignity, friendliness and reality counseling.. to make it as pleasant as possible.
Everyone was very friendly, a smile makes a day. The team was smiling and did not make anything awkward.
Everyone was extremely friendly, and there was no awkwardness what so ever! Loved the friendly smiles!
I was impressed with the staff n surgeons professionalism. I had felt comfortable...plus I had learned more about my procedure. Very nice to come out more knowledgable than when going in. I will be for sure scheduling my surgery with dr brahme. :)
My daughter and I both have had surgery at this location. Honestly I was hoping since I had a full face lift 9 years prior that the price would be lower. I went to another doctor 1 mile down the road and was quoted $9K for full face lift, neck and eyes. At your location I was quoted $9K for the face lift only. I feel I need the whole enchilada so even though I wanted to schedule the surgery I was unable to go forward due to finances.
I love the Great customer service and knowlegable staff.
Everyone was GREAT!! It was my first major surgery of any kind and everyone went above and beyond to make sure I was well cared for and comfortable.
Professional, friendly staff. I like the comfortable, clean enviorment.
The entire experience felt very professional and at the same time very personal. The facility is perfect and the staff is warm, friendly, and encouraging (and extremely knowledgeable, of course). Any awkwardness I felt going in was gone by the end of the first visit. I felt helped and heard and cared for every step of the way – especially when my surgeon and the staff called to check in on me during the first few days of recovery. After all the research I did, I knew that I would get great medical care. But I was additionally impressed by the personal care and concern I felt at LJCSC.I am very happy with my breast augmentation and the experience of getting it done! I only wish I hadn't waited so long.
Nurses and doctor are highly experienced and listen to the patient needs. They are very attentive, friendly, caring, and made me feel comfortable and secure.
Loved Dr. Brahme. Felt very comfortable with him and his recommendations. My husband also was with me and he too felt Dr. Brahme would be the best choice for my procedures. Christina was very helpful and made me feel very at ease about my procedures. Even shared her personal experiences she has had with Dr. Brahme and her procedures.
The entire experience was positive for me as a patient. My treatment needs were addressed kindly and with high professionalism and expertise by each staff member. Pain management was good and follow-up was thorough.
I went in with an idea, and through talking with Dr. brahme and Christina, we were able to find the best solution for my body and everything turned out to be perfect. There were no complications at all; after surgery I was off pain pills within 3 days and felt I could return to normal activity shortly after (of course be sure to follow your doctors instructions). I highly recommend this procedure and surgeon.
I liked the staff & the way the nurses & Dr. Brahme treated me & the communication. Each time I called the office I received a call back in a timely manner. The nurses & Dr. Brahme were very attentive when I was concerned with the way one of my breasts was healing. Over all the experience has been great. I plan to go back for a tummy tuck once I have paid off the procedure that was recently completed.
everyone was super friendly and made me feel comfortable.
I felt that the surgeon and staff were very friendly and answered all of my questions. Everything was explained in great detail and the staff eased all of my fears and nervousness
My formal scheduled consultation was with Dr. Salz for a breast procedure. I was highly satisfied with that consultation because she considered and explained the many options so well. Then I mentioned that I was also considering a face lift, and she recommended Dr. Brahme for that. They asked him on the spot if he could do an impromptu consultation, which he did, and as a result, I am seriously considering both surgeries. All involved: nurses, patient coordinators, and surgeons were highly professional, and the overall experience was very positive.
Special thanks to Jalayne Torres for addressing post-surgery concerns regarding nausea and drain blockage (including calls in the middle of the night). She and others also called me regularly during the weeks following surgery to check on my progress. I am very happy with my results. People say I look great - not that I had a face lift!
Everyone at the office is incredibly warm and friendly.
Every time I entered the office, I felt very specially and highly attended too. Everyone treated me very kindly and helped ease my nerves, especially the day of the surgery.
I have been mostly satisfied, the experience was smooth and the staff friendly and knowledgeable. However I am still awaiting before & after photos and haven't heard from anyone since my original visit.
I was very pleased that the surgeon was able to remove the scare tissue from a previous surgery that was conducted on site. Very happy so far with the out come of the surgery and healing process. Looking forward to the 3 month visit and taking after" pictures for the scar removal. Great staff and clean environment. Highly recommended."
At each step I was called and asked if all was well. I felt very special, not just one more surgery person. Christine and Dr Brahme were truly wonderfully attentive and all my concerns were heard and addressed. I would highly recommend Dr Barhme to others and have already. Thank you helping me look the way I love and wanted. :)
Extremely comfortable with the credentials,knowledge/expertise, and exerience of the surgeon and the approachable manner of his two assistants.
Great experience. Dr. Brahme and his staff were very compassionate and listened to ensure my needs/wants of my surgery were met. Thank you!
I really appreciated that Dr. Brahme and his staff really listened to me and never pushed me into doing something I wasn't comfortable doing. They were very patient and caring.
After finally making the decision to have a Rhinoplasty, my search began for the most experienced, knowledgeable, and respected professional that I could find. After interviewing several doctors, I decided to go with Dr. Brahme. Dr. Brahme is one of the most caring, respectful, and dedicated doctors I have had the privilege of meeting. His bedside manner with his patients is beyond superior and his pride in his work and dedication to his patient's needs far surpassed my expectations. Dr. Brahme's office staff has been just outstanding, Jan Luck, patient coordinator who walked me through the process, head nurse, Christina Lindstrom, who was outstanding to me, and nurses Carmen Delgado and Jalayne Torres for their support and encouragement. And my wonderful anesthesiologist, Dr. Young, just amazing, laying down on the operating table and seeing those bright lights above was unnerving, but Dr.Young made it very relaxing and was such a professional. A special thank you to all of the office staff, all were just wonderful. Thank you Dr. Brahme, I am a million \% satisfied with my results - this whole process has been the most positive and life changing experiences ever!!
The staff was beyond friendly to make even the most difficult and uncomfortable situations comfortable :)
I had never been to a plastic surgeon's office before and was expected to be intimidated, but they were all very nice! The doctor and the nurse were both very nice and informative. I have been communication with the patient coordinator and she has been patient with me and has answered all of my vast questions. I look forward to scheduling soon!
The decision of incision and size of my right breast is very different from my left breast and at this time I am not highly satisfied, I will have to wait and see how it will look when it settles in which is in a couple months from now.
Office staff so friendly and helpful...and makes you feel so comfortable.Double that for Dr. B.!....and Christine Lindstrom is the best! Jah..Jah...?Give her a raise....Dr. B.!Love you guys and will see you in a few weeks. Love my new perky boobs.
This was my second procedure at this facility but with a different doctor based on specialty. I was very happy with the overall staff and the way the nurse prepared me for surgery and recovery. They gave me thorough instructions for post-op and even suggestions where to buy certain items. The doctor answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable with his experience over the year. I'm very happy with my results and would recommend them to others.
I was satisfied with my procedure.
I was so pleased! Not only is everyone very kind but your office felt like family, your not just a number your treated like part of a family.
I was very happy with all staff before and after surgery. Dr Brahme is a genius, his work is flawless
Dr. Brahme was a very respectful surgeon who actively listened to my wants and expected outcome of the surgery. His nursing and admin staff were also very friendly and helpful in providing personal experiences that helped relieve some of my concerns.
All of the staff were extremely helpful and patient as I had many questions. I felt safe using this facility and using Dr. Brahme and would highly recommend him and this office for any plastic surgery needs.
The final results was very close to what we expected plus the staff were great.
Dr. Brahme and his nurse we're so amazingly caring, helpful and nice. I haven't had my surgery done yet but am very excited to set the date soon. I trust I will be in good hands.
onest and very nice people specially the nurses and Dr.
Because I didn't get the result that I look for. Also they asked me to pay more money for the correction of the surgery of face lift.
Dr. Brahme preformed my breast augmentation 13 years ago and I only trust him with my surgeries. I am scheduled for surgery on 7/2-chin implant, chin/neck lipo, ultherapy, cancer scan reduction, large mole removal with Lauren and Dr. Brahme. I will then have under eye laser treatment, fat transfer to my behind, and then lipo around my hips, legs, and behind in November.
My surgeon was excellent as far as his professional skills, as well as on an interpersonal level. He really listened and made sure he understood my questions as English is not my first language. He gave me reliable information on what is doable and what to expect as the result. Christina, the nurse that was present during my first consultation, is equally excellent on her field. She was able to make me feel comfortable and confident that the surgery would have a exceptionally great outcome. Another nurse, I unfortunately do not remember her name, was very helpful in documenting the before and after photos. She printed out and gave me pictures of the before photos to take them home.
Dr. Brahme is a great doctor.
My Breast Augmentation and Tummy Lipo, has given me so much confidence! Dr. Brahme, and his professional staff went out of their way to educate me, support my recovery, and respect my tailored plastic surgery requests. I look forward to referring family and friends to Dr. Brahme! Thank you, for giving me my pre children" body back!"
Dr. Brahme met my expectations and then some! I don't look pulled or like I had anything done. Comments from people are I look refreshed and beautiful. I feel beautiful.
Excellent care and follow up
I was very pleased at every stage of my experience; from the moment I was greeted at the front desk to the consultation, pre-op, surgery, and all post-op follow up. The staff in the office are so welcoming and helpful. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
All questions were answered. I felt so comfortable with all the physicians and staff.
Everything was done professionally.
Dr Brahme worked on me in 2004 and 2005. My results were astounding. Since that time I have referred him exclusively. Recent referral had procedures done in March 2014. he is highly skilled. stands behind his work and is an incredibly gifted surgeon. In the past years some people I know have gone to other surgeon even after I recommended brahme and their results were not as satisfying. I am returning for some more work this month.
I was satisfies with the confidence that Dr. Brahme showed during my consultation. I told him my expectations and he proved himself beyond my expectations.
I heard about Dr. Brahme through a friend who also had a breast augmentation. It was very easy to make an appointment for a consultation and once I went I knew I wanted to go to him. The staff always made me feel very comfortable and told me every little detail about the procedure. I am very pleased with my breasts and I will definitely refer anyone who is considering cosmetic surgery to LJCSC!
They we extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Did not rush my appointment and answered all my questions. Very professional and clean office
I was highly satisfied because I felt that they valued me as a person. They took in consideration with my size frame with my augmentation. All the nurses, very welcoming, with all my appointments. I look forward to more surgery's in the future and will use Dr. Brahme & staff.
Dr Brahms provided me with the information and confidence needed to believe he is the right doctor to perform the lower mini face lift. I have gone to and referred friends and family to LJCSC since 1995. My hesitation is two-fold...1. Price and 2. Schedule
Everyone in the office makes you feel very comfortable from start to finish .. It made the whole process very easy
All of the staff was very friendly, made sure i was comfortable, and gave me plenty of helpful information on the procedure i was considering.
From past experience with Dr. Brahme, I trust him and his experience.
I can only say Thank you for everything. I really feel Excelent!!!!
Dr. Brahme considerate, caring, and professional. He spent as much time with me as necessary so that I was satified. I did not feel rushed. I was comfortable throughout the procedure. The OR nurse was also very thorough and made me feel comfortable throughout my stay.
I'm not sure even where to start. Everything turned out perfectly from the 1st pre op visit to the last checkup. I was comfortable and eager to go forward within one minute after I met Dr Brahme and his nurse Christine. I couldn't be happier with the entire process from beginning to end.
My eyes look better and better each day!
Dr. Brahme listened to my needs and knew exactly what I was looking for in a breast augmentation. I trusted his opinion and knew that he was going to give me the best possible outcome for my body. I loved my experience at this doctor's office and would recommend Dr. Brahme's work to anybody wanting to get a breast augmentation. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The office itself is beautiful. Overall, I loved my experience at this office and the way I look after surgery!
I had three girlfriends who got their breast done by Dr Brar me he is amazing so I went to him I had such a great experience about a month later my boyfriend went and got a different procedure done by him as well turned out perfect
I feel very fortunate that I had the opportunity to make an informed decision and the staff ensure I was well informed. I felt very welcomed and well cared for. I am especially grateful that my surgeon recommended I go larger with my augmentation than my initial preference. His expertise and knowledge of his clients really paid off. I appreciate absolutely love my improved body.
DR Brahme and his staff are very professional and friendly. My breasts look awesome. They did forget about me after my 1st check up. I had to go out in the hall to find someone. My name is the same as one of the staff members so they asked is Christina in there and the other lady said yes. But I was actually in another room waiting for almost an hour after I got there. They we're very apologetic.. it really was an honest mistake. I will always go there -- I have had 3 surgeries done by Dr Brahme. He is the best. Thanks
Everyone was very friendly, helpful, supportive and informative. La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery made my procedure very comfortable.
The staff was extremely nice and respectful. Dr. Brahme was very professional and made me feel comfortable. He also suggested another surgical procedure that would enhance the result - without any extra cost!!!! I really appreciated that! I've already done the procedure and I am very satisfied, although there are some small corrections I might need to do. I have another consultation in about 2 months, so we'll see how that turns out! Overall, very satisfied.
I could not be more satisfied with the whole experience. From my initial consult with Dr. Brahme, I immediately felt at ease and comfortable. I feel that the whole team walked me through every step of the process and I could not be happier with my results.
Everyone was very friendly, helpful and informative. The atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable.
The office is very calming, there was coffee and tea offered. The nurse, Christine, was awesome. Very down to earth and shared her experiences as well as sharing / showing her scars. She puts you at ease.Dr Brahme was also very personable and answered all my questions. Everybody in the office was very nice.
Dr Brahme and his staff were very kind, informative, professional.
The customer service was superb! All of the staff is extremely helpful and very friendly!
I cannot express my gratitude to Dr. Brahme and his staff for the results in my life physically and mentally when I completed my surgery. The only thing stopping me from returning is time from work for recovery. Way to go Dr. Brahme keep up the awesome work.
Well, to begin, I had seen over eight plastic surgeons before choosing Dr. Brahme. Whether it was the high communication between him and his nurses or the communication between him and me...whatever it was...I felt COMFORTABLE. The moment I heard Dr. Brahme speak about the procedure. ..I felt a certain reassurance that he definitely knew what he was doing. I am now fourteen days post op and I am more satisfied than I anticipated that I would be. My girls are better every day...I feel whole. ..like a real woman. ..and I owe all of my happiness and satisfaction to Dr. Brahme and his staff.Thank You.
For all the questions you asked I was Highly Satisfied for all those reasons. The staff, nurses, and doctor were all thoughtful and concerned.
Second surgery with Dr. Brahme. Outstanding Plastic Surgeon
Being a new mommy with little help I was nervous that I would not be fully prepared to the newest adventure I was signing up for, however the staff calmed every nerve and reassured every fear that I felt.The staff was friendly, inviting, patient and informative. My doctor had the best bedside manner I could have asked for and I worked side by side with doctors for over 10 years so I was very pleased to feel that sense of comfort.Most importantly my after result was EXACTLY what I had envisioned! They look and feel fantastic- better than I imagined! Top notch customer service, results and price. If I ever need anything else this will be the only place I go!
proceedure explained well, made me feel comfortable. happy with before/after pictures. saw pics of other patients who had same proceedure
The staff and Dr. Brahme are absolutely wonderful!
They were very thorough in explaining all the before's and after's of what to expect for the surgery. They always listened to what I had to say never making me feel rushed or not important.
I was very impressed by the time, explanations, and overall caring of the Surgeon and his staff members. All my questions were answered, and I wasn't made to feel that my time with the surgeon was limited because this was a free consultation.
Dr. Brahme made me feel very comfortable and at ease with my surgery and expectations. Everyone who I have been in contact with at this practice has been very professional, intelligent, and helpful during the process. I chose to have a consultation at this practice based on a couple friend referrals and as soon as my initial consult was complete I knew this was the place for me. My recovery has been going very well, appointments have been available when I needed them, and I plan to refer this practice to anyone who is interested in cosmetic surgery and continue to go there myself. Thank you for a great experience.
I found the location, office, staff and doctor to be very professional. Dr. Brahme's assistant, Christine, was so helpful and made the process less stressful for me. The day of the surgery I was able to talk to the anesthesiologist, Dr. Brahme and his nurse, and tell them exactly what I had in mind. I am very pleased with the results and would highly recommend the procedure and Dr. Brahme!
Everyone was very friendly and respectful, I did not feel judged in any way. I received both phone calls and emails from the staff. A friend of mine had undergone surgery for breast augmentation here and had great results. I am looking forward to getting my surgery done with them.
Dr. Brahms is patient and listens he is clear when giving instructions and he is comfortable like talking to your brother. His care and love of his profession show in every stage of care throughout the process!
Everyone I spoke with or met with was very friendly and personable, including the doctor. The entire process was nicely organized and thoughtful, even including a parking validation and directions out of the parking structure into the proper building! The environment was pleasant but not overdone or overwhelming.
Dr. Brahme and Mary were both extremely helpful, accommodating and very sincere in meetings my needs/feelings about the procedure. I was very comfortable with Dr. Brahme and knew I could trust him with doing my procedure and that I'd be left very happy with the results.
Everything looks great!!!
Christina, the RN, gave especially helpful information about the procedure and the expertise of the surgeon, which made me feel very secure about my surgery.
Cristina Lindstrom completely made this experience worth it for me. This was an embarrassing situation/surgery for me. But, she made me feel so comfortable and not embarrassed each time I talked to her. She is a wonderful person and asset to your practice. Janelle Robinson was also a pleasure to work with. She also made me feel very comfortable.
They were very friendly. They worked with me to get financing. they also explained the procedure and sent paperwork for me to review.
Dr. Brahme was so nice and very caring as well as all the nurses (and Mary too)...I was super nervous going into the operating room and the nurse literally held my hand as I closed my eyes to even walk to the bed, and laid on my chest as I was going under which was very comforting as I was shaking...I felt a genuine sense of relief counting to five. Because of your staff, and obviously Dr. Brahme, I will def recommended your office. Not to mention, my nose is pretty as well.
The wait time after check-in was too long. I had to wait 45 minutes!
great service! friendly and informative.
The overall experience was very satisfying I have no complaints! I loved everything about LJCSC, from the staff to the nurses to the surgeon! Excellent
I felt De Brahme was completely honest about what he could do for me and had more interest in my well being than doing a surgery I wanted that would be too risky. That was one of the main reasons I chose him.
Dr Brahme and ALL the staff were attentive, friendly, and professionalOverall an enjoyable experience
I was impressed with the surgeon's enthusiasm for his work.
I had interviewed a few plastic surgeons prior to meeting with Dr. Brahme. I was not comfortable with any of them. When I met Dr. Brahme I felt immediately comfortable. He allowed me to ask all of my questions and never made me feel like any of them were stupid. He took all the time I needed and never made me feel rushed. His staff is amazing. They all seem very happy working there. I have referred many friends to him already. I have my 3 month check up coming and I am looking forward to seeing all of my friends," there."
I have always felt uncomfortable with the size and shape of my breasts. My doctor understood this and gave me the results I dreamed about.
Because of the excellent service that we received.
The atmosphere and attitudes made the difference. I had gone for a total of 3 consults, the other 2 practices didn't seem like a good fit. One practice I did not feel well received" another I simply did not feel "comfortable." I chose this facility as the the surgeon and nurse had a great synergy, they were very helpful, they took their time time during my consults and the pricing was fair.
Aside from everyone being friendly and welcoming, they were very informative. I was seen promptly, the nurse was very comforting and provided a vast amount of information. Dr. Brahme took his time and was incredibly thorough. His accreditations are what they should be, the facility is fantastic, the before and after pictures of his patients are more than impressive.
I was satisfied because they explained every detail from surgery and what to expect before and after your procedure. The staff was very professional.
Everybody was friendly and fun to talk to.
The Surgeon and all nurses/coordinators made me feel very comfortable about the procedure and I trusted them to tell me the truth about what would be my best options. Other consults I went to did not feel as honest as this one and I felt most at ease in this office.
The most impressive part about this experience was that I never felt pressured to go through with the surgery in the early stages. I felt as though my decision was completely up to me. The surgeon and staff was very friendly and answered all questions I had and made me feel at ease. Even being a patient that has other underlying health issues, I was cared for in a manner that made me feel comfortable and safe. After surgery, it was nice to get a phone call from the surgeon that night to make sure I was doing okay.
I was satisfied
The lady consultants were exceptionally, sincerely friendly and helpful.Your price is reasonable compared to other places I've checked.I felt like the doctor was listening and agreeable to what I and how I want the procedure.Your office was impressively & pleasantly decorated.
The staff was very informative and qualified and made me feel very much at ease regarding the entire procedure. Moreover, I was well briefed on what to expect, which was comforting, particularly in the first few days after the procedure. I don't know what the doctor or any of the staff could have done to make things better. It was great.
Dr. Brahme, the nurse and the entire staff was extremely friendly and made me feel very comfortable. Everyone shared their experiences and were very honest about them. Dr. Brahme explained in depth why a certain way for my procedure would be best. I did not feel pressured in any way. I loved the sizing part of the consult. I had been to 2 other doctors before meeting with Dr. Brahme and none of them offered any type of sizing consult. In my opinion Dr. Brahme went above and beyond to make sure the procedure and placement would be the right one for me. I will definitely be scheduling this procedure as soon as I get my financing figured out!
I think my results could have been better.
The experience I don't remember. Did not achieve what I expected from the facelift. My main concern was my mouth that turns down. It still turns down. The high pain and numbness was more than expected. I also got lip injections to enhance my lips and it was gone after 2 months. Expected to last 9 months to a year. It has been 6 months and I was not expecting to be numb still. Over all Happy with my neck and eyes .
I love them! This was an amazing experience. I wish i would have do it earlier in my life.
My experience with Dr. Brahme & his staff was wonderful. I felt very comfortable with everyone. I am extremely happy with the results! He listened and gave me exactly what I wanted. I can't thank him enough.
Imediately, I was made to feel comfortable. The pre and post communication between Dr. Brahme and his staff was excellent. All of my questions were answered honestly and I appreciate that.
My face tends to swell around my eyes and nose. I wanted my nose to be less bulbous than it is (was) so that is why I had the tip repair. Though I understand my nose may be swollen for at least a year after the surgery, to date my nose still looks more bulbous than I would like. I am not sure if this is a result of the surgery and will reduce in time or if my nose is just still too bulbous on the tip. I am hoping it will reduce as time passes.
I felt extremely comfortable. The whole practice was very welcoming. Everyone I spoke to has had a medical procedure within the practice and had a very heart warming story to tell. I liked how they made sure I felt like i was making the right decision throughout the while experience. There was not a moment that I felt pressured to get the surgery it was ultimately my choice and I couldn't be happier. I have already referred a few friends. Best money I have spent!
The results are simply amazing. I look like I did when I was in my 30's and I'm 57! I felt safe and secure with the staff and the facilities. Dr. Brahme is the Michelangelo of the cosmetic surgery world. I'm so happy I had it done.
I came from out of town to get a breast augmentation because I heard great things! They treated me great and worked with my schedule having the pre-op the day before surgery and a visit the day after surgery! Great experience, would definitely recommend to all!
Everyone was very friendly and informative. The nurses and surgeon made me feel at ease and prepared me very well for the surgery and recovery. They answered all of my questions.
The overall experience was wonderful, very friendly staff, always smiling!! I'm so happy with my new boobs! Thaw look great!! Dr. B is a wonderful man!!"
What I got for $10,000
Everyone was so kind and very knowledgeable
Christine was WONDERFUL. She is kind, patient, and understanding and in other circumstances someone I would want to be friends with. I just love her chair side manner. She put me at ease and helped with questions that I had and helped me make my final decision.
Everyone was so friendly. They answered all my questions even the ones about their procedures. Dr. Brahme was so friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great experience!
I felt that my experience was perfect in all aspects from the consultation to the final results. The staff and surgeon both made me feel important and comfortable, they took the time and effort to make sure all my questions were answered. I am very pleased with the results and the experience! Thank you!!
Surgeon did not really tell me what size or type implants are good for me. I feel like lots of information about the procedure was left out.
Great experience! Dr. Brahme, the nurses and staff did a great job. I have no complains and I am very satisfied with my experience and the results.
The staff, nurses, doctors were all very friendly and very knowledgeable. They took as much time as needed to answer questions and to take care of the business aspect efficiently. The ambiance of the office is very pleasing as well.I feel more like a friend or family member than a patient! A very pleasing experience!
I have complete trust in Dr. Brahme and his ability to provide not only excellent medical care, but to give me the best possible result aesthetically. Because I trust him, I trust that he has also hired the best medical staff possible.
The scar line is higher than expected.
THE INTEGRITY OF STAFF, PROFESSIONALISM, AND FRIENDLINESS
Dr. Brahme and his staff made you feel very comfortable and they did not waste your time or give you any run around. Everything was very straight forward and professional and still very personable.
I am very pleased with the result and care given, it could not be any better.Thanks again to all of you.
The best experience ever. Your office has it right, keep up the great work!
I could go on and on, but I don't have time... I was scared to death to have a lift and implants in my breasts... I knew it's something I always wanted.. Te staff and Dr Brahme were so wonderful I booked my procedure with in a week of meeting him.. I have been to 5 different surgeons in the past few years and was not comfortable.. It's been 2 weeks since my surgery and I am beyond satisfied with the practice, staff and doctors. I'm healing up fantastic and I look amazing.. When I look in the mirror I can't believe I'm looking at My own body!!! So exciting!!
I felt it was too much money and was not explained thoroughly of the costs. The morning of the surgery was when I was told that I would have to pay more than what we had on paper. I had to pay an additional couple thousand more to receive the procedures I elected. I was really upset and I even had to keep this from my husband since I knew he would be upset. Although I am highly pleased with the outcome...I would have lived to have loved to have had a little change that I requested originally.
Dr. Brahme in my eyes, is a true representation of a scientist whom has perfected his surgical and sculptural technical skills.His procedural phases of answering questions with compassion from initial consultations , throughout the experience of procedure, to recovery.... is a gift of comfort for me as his patient.Dr. Brahme is a true artist in the most authentic of ways...staying true to his patients and there needs .
LJCSC is a great and friendly place. There is no pressure and Dr.Brahme is one of the best in the business. Its really hard to go wrong with LJCSC.
Everything was beyond expectation!
My surgery was due to a previous surgical complication. Face had deformities. Dr. Brahme knew he could help me and I was so very thankful with the normal results as well as more youthful! My previous surgery left me dreading any surgery, but the team was confident, caring and listened to my apprehension and desires. They went beyond my expectations. I was awake and began walking the next day & up to 6 miles a day while recovering. I felt great, happy & thankful. Once again comfortable when someone wants a snap shot! A miracle!
Dr. Brahme took time to really understand my concern. The staff was very friendly which made it easy to ask questions. I had one surgery prior with Dr. Brahme which I recovered well from. I returned a second time because the results from the first surgery was that I healed really well. The actual size of the breast were much larger than what I wanted. It took some time to return for the second surgery because of the cost. Overall experience with both surgeries were good.
I felt that everybody involved was informative, patient with my questions, friendly and very supportive. I also felt that there was excellent follow-up and genuine concern to make sue that I was happy and comfortable with the procedure.
The nurse was very empathetic. I was a little nervous about the surgeon looking at my A- breast, but Christina make me feel very comfortable about the surgeon and myself. She also shared some personal past experiences that made me identify with her. I loved the way she treated me, sort of like a maternal figure. The way she talk to me, made the decision on choosing this place for my surgery easier.
Nurses and physician spent time answering all questions, within 24 hours of calling.
everyone was very professional and accomodating
Dr brahme is amazing! He listened to everything I said and did they exactly how I wanted I recommend him all the time to everyone and everyone there is very nice I love the nurse to very caring and nice
Dr. Brahme was friendly, attentive, and my surgery was very successful. I could not be happier with my results. I will be returning for future operations, and would highly recommend him if you are looking to remove the bump on your nose!! Amazing experience overall.
Everyone was very helpful and did a great job at giving me the information I requested and then some. I thought the price would be a little less. I was a little dissatisfied to know I couldn't use the full amount of my customer card towards the procedure. Overall I am very satisfied with everything and am eager for my second BA. :)
I had no worries and was extremely please with everything!
From begining to end everything went flawlessly, thank you
Staff were friendly.Nurse and surgeon were respectful and answer all my questions.Office is clean.Surgeon is board certified with long experience.
Dr brahme was amazing I love his work my scars are very small that was a big deal for me I am very happy with his work his nurses Are great I would go again and refer people to dr brahme and his staff
Dr. Brahme was very open and honest when I inquired about the two procedures I was interested in. Christine was readily available to answer my questions.
Everyone was knowledgeable and extremely warm and inviting. Made the experience very comfortable. Will 100\% be scheduling my procedure with Dr. Brahme.
I wanted to possibly explore different reshaping options.
The staff was very welcoming and attentive to my needs. I had questions and concerns about the procedure and they were able to address them.
From the moment I walked into this place I felt so comfortable and everyone I ment and talk to were all super nice a nd friendly. Dr.brahme and his nurse were so caring and sweet thru the whole process I can't say enough great things about this place , dr .brahme , his nurse Christina ,and all the staff I would 100\%, recommend him to anyone!!
It was miraculous that I found someone confident that they could help me with deformities that resulted from previous surgery at a world renown clinic where they were hesitant to correct the complications that occurred. I scheduled the surgery within 2 weeks and had the surgery 2 months later with outstanding results. The uneven lose, poochy cheeks and ridge & creases were fixed. I look beautifully normal again.
I was very pleased. I like the result.Great surgeon, great people at the office and wonderful nurses.Thank you.
EVERYONE was so cordial, professional, more than willing to explain the procedure several times, answer all questions, concerns. Everyone encouraged us to contact the office with any questions we had after leaving all appointments. I felt as if everyone we had contact with in the office was there to help me make the right choice for me. Was very impressed with the staff & the number of people working behind the scenes.
Before the procedure the staff made it extremely comfortable for me to relax. Very throrough on what was about to happen; the steps going into surgery and out. Very detailed about post surgery op and the directions my caregiver was to do.
Office was beautiful.. Staff was so nice and informative. Surgery went awesome!
Dr Brahme really spent a good amount of time with me during my consult. I felt like he would have stayed there all day answering my questions if I needed him to. The staff all tried to be as efficient and helpful as possible at all times.
Everyone was so welcoming and willing to help me understand everything that would be happening within my consultation. The doctor made me feel very comfortable and explained exactly what he was going to be doing before he started, which actually helped me to stay calm. I get nervous and have anxiety at any type of doctors appointment and this was probably one of the first times I felt no anxiety.
Trust. Not sales pitch.
The doctor explained the surgery and what changes are possible and what is unrealistic to expect.
Only two areas: the wait time for surgery was longer than expected and there was poor communication as to how much longer I would have to wait - very hard when you are nervous and anxious about surgery. Also, had a hard time coming out of anesthesia and felt hurried out the door after procedure.
Expertise of surgeon, friendly of all nurses and staffs, wonderful atmosphere of the facility.
Everyone was extremely friendly. The first woman who sat down in the room with me, explained her experience and I could tell that she genuinely wanted to help me while fitting for the perfect size! They also made me feel comfortable the day of the surgery which helped me not freak out. My appts were sent through texts as a reminder, which was very well needed. Overall great experience. My last appt is in a couple of days :)!
Dr. Brahme is amazing! I was incredibly nervous to get a breast augmentation and I can't even begin to explain how happy I am with my results. Dr. Brahme gave me BETTER then what I had expected and I couldn't be more satisfied. All of the employees are extremely nice and comforting. They answered all of my questions and thoroughly explained the process. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. It is so worth it! I have been referring everyone to Dr. Brahme! Thank you so much, you truly are amazing at what you do!
Dr. Brahme & RN Christine were absolutely amazing. Christine explained everything is great detail from her own personal experience. Everything she said was exactly right. It made the process safe, easy, & comfortable for me. I am so happy with my results & I would highly recommend Dr. Brahme & Christine to any of my friends & family. Thank you for the amazing & supportive experience!
From beginning to end the entire staff was very friendly and professional. They answered all my questions and made me feel very relaxed and comfortable about the procedure. I am extremely happy with the results!
The office staff was very professional and understanding of my situation. I received great customer care and follow up.
Quality of work from SurgeonLike application that allows you to make and see projected changes
Dr. Brahme and his staff were extremely nice and very informative of the whole procedure. They made me feel very comfortable and confident about my decision. From the Pre-op to surgery, everything went very smoothly and I am extremely satisfied with the results! The surgery and after care went very smooth and everything is healing beautifully! I couldnt have asked for a better experience! I will and do recommend him to all my friends and family!
The entire process went smoothly and the expected outcome was specific in detail. The staff was very attentive to my needs and accommodated my every request. This was my second procedure with Dr. Brahme and his staff. I will return for any other procedures I decide on in the future and will highly recommend him to my friends and family.
This office is extravagant, professional, clean, friendly staff, comfortable, and an open and calm setting. We met Dr. Brahme's nurse and she was so thorough in her knowledge and care for his patients. She provided great personal experience and was proud to show a glimpse of his work he performed on her. We then met Dr. Brahme who exuded professionalism and took his time answering our questions. My husband was leary about the idea of surgey from the beginning but by the time we had met our surgeon it's clear this was his calling. I was able to schedule my surgery a week out with ease and am beyond thrilled with my results. I'm 26 and had 3 c-sections and have been depressed for years He gave me a priceless gift and I'm so eager to be able to afford my tummy tuck! Thank you Dr. Brahme with all my heart! Eternally greatful
Because of the friendly and informative cooperation of all involved in the consult. I also felt we had as much time as needed for my satisfaction.
I had a very good experience - they did not mind answering questions or seeing me if I had any concerns after my procedure.
Dear Dr. Brahme,Thank you so very much for helping me get through the most difficult time of my life. Without you, I would not be where I am today - happy and healthy! Your professionalism is outstanding! You understood my fears, answered all of my questions both clearly and honestly, and did an excellent job with my reconstruction surgery.My husband and I are so pleased with your work and want everyone to know what a great doctor you are. We also thank your amazing staff who went out of their way to show kindness and made me feel so comfortable.We appreciate all you have done and are forever grateful.
Everyone was so wonderful. They made me feel so comfortable, understanding, compassionate, & caring. It finally felt right to move forward with suegery i`ve been wanting for over 20 yrs. I`ll definitely return for future botox next t yrs. Thanks everyone for my new self confidence with my body. Happy New Year!
I am impressed the friendly office staffs, comfortable waiting room, specially Dr. Browme's great personality. All of those factors made me to choose your center for my very first cosmedic surgery in my life. Your Center cares patients in great detail and provide warmest comfort. Now my tummy tuck procedure is done and I am very happy about my outcome. The staffs have done great job to follow up my recovering and patiently answer my any questions regarding my recovering daily. I am really happy about my choice of your Center!Thank you very much!
The ease with talking to Dr. B. Before and After pic.sHis hi-top tennis shoes...yellow i believe...i felt so comfortable.
Had implants placed 15 years ago in 1997 by Dr. Brahme. When I noticed a leak 7 weeks before my wedding, I was frantic! I called Dr. Brahme's office, they got me in Tuesday for a consultation, Wednesday for pre-op blood work, prescriptions, etc. That Friday I was in surgery at 8:30am! The next day I attended a wedding, and the weekend after, a wedding in San Francisco. 9 hour drive, I did great!! My nurse called me over the SF weekend to check on me! The entire staff at Dr. Brahme's office is awesome! They took such wonderful care of me the entire time!!! Very attentive and extremely caring! If I ever need anything else, I will definitely see Dr. Brahme and his wonderful staff again!
I really liked everyone how work at the clinic and felt very safe.
knowlegible staff, informative visit and comforting atmosphere.
It was very surprise that I did not have to take one pain pill after the surgery. I appreciate Dr Brahme's skill and his wonderful and supportive nursing staff during my surgery. The confidence of the doctor and his staff helped me to make the decision to undergo my procedure. Although I am still under the recovery period after the surgery, I was very comfortable with the procedure and it was an excellent experience.
Dr. Brahme and his nurse Christine made my husband and I feel comfortable in the office consultation. I was confused about dermabrasion after talking to two other surgeons and my concerns were cleared up by dr. Brahme. I felt confident in his ability to do my surgery.
The staff overall were very nice and met all my needs. Dr. Brahme on the other hand, has made me a new person! I didn't know that my breasts could look the way they do now, which are fuller and closer together! He achieved all my expectations, for which I am very thankful for! I will definitely send future business their way!
All of the staff made me feel comfortable and I felt as though they cared about what was best for me. I was treated like an old friend which made the decision making process easy.
The entire team was great.
The surgeon gave a lot of time and information; I did not feel any pressure; comfortable and relaxing atmosphere.
Everyone was very friendly and informative. The atmosphere is very comfortable and the process from check in to check out is very well run. The doctor and nurse were very nice, intelligent, and made me feel comfortable.
Friendliness of staff.
Expertise in this area - Board certified staff - including ACLS. The sheer volume of cases the facility handles - lots of experience in this type of surgery - Photos of previous patients' outcomes- Home-like environmental atmosphere - comfy, not a cold or clinical office - The fact that the Bair hugger hose was pumping warm air into the office showed how thoughtful patient comfort is to the staff - Christina was wonderful partly because she's been though it but also because of her expert knowledge to anticipate my specific questions Dr. Brahme was so confident and gentle in his approach that first time I met with him - so unlike an eager salesman. Mary was so positive and supportive, reassured me that financing part of the bill would be easy and routine. All the nurses spoke so highly of Dr. Brahme - they relayed confidence in the ability of his work and trust not only as a great surgeon but as a good man. Each time I was there it was obvious that the visit was all about me and they all were there just for me. I couldn't be happier with my decision to place my trust in Dr. Brahme and in the La Jolla Cosmetic Centre.
Very personalized, caring attention prior to, during, and after procedure, including adjusting procedure to accommodate my small window of time available for procedure and helping arrange for excellent aftercare individual in my home.
The entire Staff of Dr Brahme's office including Dr Brahme are/were always so willing to help in any way, pre-post and on going. I was provided with all the information I needed to make the decision to have surgery, including a second consulation/visit prior to scheduling the proceedure which further enhanced my sense of confidence with my decision. The day before my surgery my ride cancelled, and the staff quickly put me at ease by arranging health care service which included transportation home and back the next day for my dressing removal. Having a professional stay at my home with me the first 24 hours was a tremendous support.As you know, cosmetic surgery is a very personal experience. Based on the personal attention this office provides as well as individual pt care...I would highly recommend LJCS to all my friends. Dr Brahme's skilled hands have helped me regain my self confidence now that the recovery is nearly complete.
Before surgery I had problems with wearing curtain clothing items Now after the surgery I have no discomfort nor problems with wearing any type of clothing. I'm very glad and satisfied with my new feel and look.
Before I would reccomend someone or rate overall experience highly satified - I will wait until the procedure is complete and see if the best possible results were achieved
I felt comfortable with the nurse and doctor. Getting a breast augmentation is a bid deal and I felt safe with Dr. Brahme and team.
Every one, as soon as you walked in the door, was extremely welcoming. Christina, the main nurse i worked with, was awesome. She called before and after the surgery to ensure i was doing well and made sure i didnt have any concerns or questions. Dr. Brahme did an amazing job on my breast augmentation. He is such a nice a guy and from my experiance, a great surgeon. My surgery appt time was at 8am and we got started right at 8. Over all, it was a great experiance.
The warmth, attention, efficiency and accommodating nature of every contact I made, from receptionist to surgeon, was superlative.
Very informative and couteous staff. Comfortable and pleasant atmosphere. On-site surgical procedures made the whole process seamless.
Everyone inthe entire building demonstrated the most sincere kindness and professionalism I have ever experienced in a physician's office! I made a friend with the anesthesiologist immediately as I do not like to be poked! He was calm and told me not to worry & I didn't feel a thing.I loved Dr Bromhe holding my hand as I was I was prepped for surgery!My recovery nurse was also my prep nurse and she made a promise to have a sprite waiting for me!& did not disappoint!I am so happy and have bragged to all my friends about my experience! Thanks for my new boobies!
I was between satisfied and highly satisfied. A few places on my face seemed to need to soften more than I expected.
Dr. Brahme and his staff were everything I wanted and more. I knew going into my surgery that I would come out exactly the way i wanted. He is so knowledgeable, but still makes you feel at ease. Also, the anesthesiologist was wonderful. He was very kind and explained everything as he was doing it. The recovery nurse also did a great job. She was very attentive and made me feel comfortable. Overall, I couldn't be happier with my results or with the care I received from their office.
Low-pressure, realistic consultation, easy to schedule surgery, efficient, professional staff and outcome is exactly what I wanted.
I was very comfortable at my first appointment and also was referred by a friend who was very satisfied with dr. Brahme's job. He do an amazing job and will definately be back in the future if I ever deside to do any more predidures.Thank You!
Was very impressed with Dr. Brahme's bio, and more impressed with his manner - confident not arrogant, personable not stiff or aloof, professional not inappropriate, patient not rushed. His staff is very friendly, open and generous with the time they give you. The office suite and amenities are warm and relaxing. I left my consult assured that Dr. Brahme has the surgical skill & cosmetic eye to provide what I want but I am postponing the actual procedure for later.
My friend had the same surgery as I did and the surgeon called her personally after the surgery and sent flowers. I guess I was expecting the same personal touch. Everything else was perfect. I loved Dr. Brahme and his staff. If I need future surgery, I will definelty use him again, but won't expect flowers ;)Thanks
Dr. B and his staff give very personalized care, and they will contact someone to remind them about appts in that's persons preferred communication method. Often I can't talk on the phone so they let me arrange thing over email. Cristina, Paula and Beth are a few of the finest nurses I've had the pleasure of meeting. Their care and kindess is unparalleled. Above and beyond caring for the patient by taking BP, vitals, drawing blood and other RN regular items, they are adept at making a person feel safe and comfortable in the clinic. During my surgery, I was so nervous that the anesthetist was having trouble threading the IV - veins tend to hide in my experience when you are nervous - Paula stroked my hair and told me I was safe and it was ok. I love these ladies. Danielle in aftercare was also fantastic.
Not only is Dr. Brahme an excellent surgeon who gets excellent results, but he also has a staff that is highly professional, knowedgeable and helpful before, during and after the surgery. Delana, the nurse I was in most contact with, was so incredibly helpful during my visits as well as the times I phoned her with questions. This was an excellent surgical experience.
I was highly satisfied with everything
discoloration of eyelids. very tender to the touch.
Great staff, great surgeon, welcoming front desk, environment for patients- great. All around experience really made me comfortable and the outcome of the surgery has given me the exact result I was hoping for.
I'm very pleased with the results of my eyelid surgery. I highly recommend LCSC.
Dr Brahme is highly skilled in what he does, I would return any time and tell all my friends about him.all staf members was wonderful, you make one fell great evry time.Thank you.
It is most likely that because final results for rhinoplasty take so long but it's been two months so far and if this were my final result then I will ask for a touch up". The tip is not exactly what I want. Time will tell but as of now. I feel it is not my desired expectation as of yet."
I am very pleased with the outcome. Dr. Brahme and his staff, Christina and Jolene, were amazing. They were always there to answer my questions and took very good care of me.
its been a pleasure working with the staff and Dr. Brahme. I am so grateful for my results. And I will always recomend his office to friends and family. I could not have fallen into better hands. Thank you for making me feel beautiful.
Very professional staff made me feel comfortable and listened to any questions that I had before and after surgery..
Experience of surgeon. Building located on hospital grounds. Friendliness of staff.
S.D. is the person who recommended your practice and he is a extremely satisfied patient. He raved about your prctice and upon arrival I found he was not over stating the quality and professionalism. I was extremely satisfied.
Love Dr. Brahme and his staff. I always feel welcome and a first priority... Any concerns or questions I may have are always addressed. I trust Dr. Brahme and feel safe being in his care.
The staff was truly warm and caring. I would have lunch with anyone in that office. The doctor has a really wonderful staff. I also liked the doctor. I think the staff was really sweet. Everyone. The offices were beautiful.
I would like to have seen/been told more specifics on what I can expect after the lipo and the body lift.
1. When I had my pre-op appointment, neither Mary, my patient coordinator, or Christine, Dr. Brahme's nurse, were present. Had I known that both were not working that day, I would have scheduled a time when they were there. Having worked with Christine before, I was more comfortable meeting with her. That should not be construed as a negative response toward the nurse who conducted my pre-op appointment.2. After paying, I didn't receive a receipt. I emailed twice and received no response. Finally, I called and received a receipt via email.
My nurse, Christina, was very warm and knowledgeable. Both her and Dr. Brahme made me feel very comfortable. With their help, I'm calm and excited for my surgery. Mary was also very warm and friendly. Everyone has kept in touch with me via phone, email, and mail. They have all made me feel special and not like just another patient.
Professional and caring, friend had good experience here
excellent customer service from the front and back office staff along with highly qualified and caring surgeons and nurses made my experience top notch.
For as nervous as I have been to proceed with my procedure, everyone was so comforting. I would not have felt this comfortable anywhere else.
Dr.Brahme and his staff were wonderful! I felt comfortable calling and asking questions before and after surgery. Will highly recommend him to friends and family.
I was surprised at the location of the cut/scar being below my hairline. i was not told in advance and may have hesitated to have the scar below the hair line.
From start to finish my experience with the entire practice has been professional and very personable. The doctor and the staff are exceptionally kind and go out of their way to make the patient feel comfortable and highly valued. I am extremely satisfied with the results of my procedure and after care as well. I have recommended this practice to my friends. And, I would certainly return to them for any future procedures.
The doctor and all staff make you feel welcome and comfortable. The nurses are forthcoming about all procedures they have had by the doctors in the office. This open and honest communication adds another level of confidence for the patient that the nurses trust the doctors they work with.
I have never felt so welcomed at a doctors office. I feel like I know everyone there. It is a place I would just stop by a say hi to my friends if I was in the area. That is a great feeling and a great place to be. Job well done!!!
LJCSC provides a highly satisfying experience for several reasons. First and foremost, the atmosphere of the office is professional, clean and immaculately well kept. Both my friend and my husband, who each spoke to my surgeon, commented on this, that it was the nicest doctor's office they'd ever been in." This type of thing inspires confidence in the patient. Appearance matters. Second, Dr. Brahme is very honest, skilled and good with his patients (he was with me).If I were him, I would find a way to tell patients his surgical outcomes statistics in the consult or in the follow up contact. This is the age of Dr. WebMD and with people doing more and more self research on their doctors annually, I think the doctors have an interest in making sure all the positive information available is at a potential patients reach. Example, Dr. Brahme performs 220 breast augmentations in a year, 35\% more than the average surgeon. (That is actually true, average surgeon performs 75 augmentations). I know his experience and background are well advertised, but possibly try to put his "batting average" so to speak out there. Thanks, LJCSC Looking forward to my procedure!!"
All the staff are extremely warm and receptive. Of all my consulations I feel most comfortable with this staff to have my procedure.
The minute I walked into the office I was immediately tended to and everyone made me feel at ease. The patient coordinator was wonderful and friendly. She made me feel at home. The moment I met Dr. Brahme, I instantly felt a connection to him as he completely understood what I wanted and explained to me what issues I was up against with the procedure I was doing. He made me feel as if I was family with how tender and caring he was.
I was pleasantly surprised with how the nurse, patient coordinator and surgeon were respectful to my needs and gave me the most information on the procedure I was looking into! They were all very professional and courteous. They were all willing and able to answer any and all of my questions. I loved how they follow up with you the week after your consult to see if you might have any more questions. I can't wait to book my appt for surgery with them
The staff is very accomidating and informative. All of my appointments, phone calls and questions were of convienience to me. The staff understood exactly what my initial outlook/results were of and they have beyond met my expectations in every area possible throughout the whole experience.
Reception to the dr ... Everyone was so nice
Dr. Brahme and his staff were genuinely caring and concerned in making sure I felt confident in my decision to have the surgery. There was no presure to have the surgery and they made themselves available to me anytime I had any questions prior to making my decision. Before, during and after my surgery they made me feel like I was special. I have already recommended Dr. Brahme to my friends. As long as Dr. Brahme is practicing I will be his patient.
The whole atmosphere was just amazing there and I felt so comfortable. They were all so helpful and nice.
everyone was so nice .. I felt very comfortable. Front desk welcomed me by name when I came in. My husband felt comfortable there. I feel the Doctor and nurses both sincerely cared that I would be satisfied with the results. I will most certainly be coming back for future treatments and procedures. Dawndie
I was greatly cared for by the entire staff, with more than just the surgery needs. My dr also contacted my radiologist personally to expedite some breast issues. Ashley Strong, my coordinator, was very caring and helped put me at ease, and did a lot of extra work to help me with the payment. My nurses were fantastic, very personable, and very knowledgeable. Plus they were always available for my questions. Dr. Brahme emailed me back anytime I have a question directly to him. The receptionist knows me by site, and is so friendly. The whole office feels good, and really takes care to make sure the patients are taken care of in every way. The surgery and recovery are very very hard, but I don't think I could have imagined a better team to help me get through it. Perfection as far as I am concerned.
Very informational, educational and friendly approach. Felt like I was dealing with a highly professional team overall and have great confidence in their advise and oppinions. They listened and it has been a very good experience overall.
Overall, my first experience was wonderful with plastic surgery. The office staff was incredibly compassionate and knowledgeable, however both sides of my breasts (nipple area) did not turn out the same. One is very thickly scarred and puckered, looking distorted or disfigured. The nurses have assured me this will change in the upcoming months so I'm patiently waiting, hoping for the best!
the nurses, receptionist, and surgeon made me feel nothing but comfortable and happy and understood that i was nervous and helped me through it. They answered each and every one of my questions and helped me achieve the results i wanted.
Everyone was very friendly!
from start to finish this was a great experience! I was initially very nervous about my procedure. The staff and Dr assured me that everything would be fine! The surgery and recovery was a breeze! I tell all my friends about how amazing my surgery went!Dr. Brahme and his staff are amazing!!!
Friendly, professional manner of discussing the options. Felt a level of expertise in the area of face lifts.
Dr.Brahme and his staff are wonderful!!! I went to three other plastic surgeons and I knew he was the one as soon as he started talking!! Christina, his nurse and Ashley, the patient coordinator, both took their time with me when I had any questions. I would highly recommend Dr.Brahme! He is just awesome!!!
The experience to be at these office was great, warm and helpful people,understanding whatever concern you may have and always attended the needs of the patient.I would gladly recommend to all my family and friends these great team of Surgeons and their staf.
I had gone to other consultations and the surgeons were looking at charts and they didn't seem very confident about what size breast would work for me. They also were talking to me about some things that I think only the surgeon should decide. At thihs consultation, however the surgeon was professional, extremely knowlegeable, confident that he would help me achieve the look I want. His nurse Christine was great also.
Most post-op visits I had to wait 15-25min after my scheduled appointment, followed by a quick and brief visit.
Everyone was very professional from the receptionist to the surgeon. I felt very confident in their ability that they understood what I wanted.
Dr. Brahme and the nursing staff at LJCSC have been so amazing throughout the whole process. They made me feel comfortable by educating me and giving me the best options for my procedure. Before and after my procedure they went above and beyond to address my concerns and questions. I would recommed Dr. Brahme to anyone I know. Truely a rare experience in the medical field. He really cares about his patients and takes pride in the outcome of his work.
The staff is reassuring, and they were very available to answer any question I had. And the surgeon is very experienced.
I'm having the procedure in couple of days.
I'm having my procedure in couple of days.
I had met with doctors in other offices, but Dr. Brahme, his staff, and the office made me the most comfortable, and had the best for me. Dr. Brahme and my coordinator were very available to me and over the top helpful since I had some issues leading right up to the surgery. My nurses were very personable, informative, helpful, caring, and totally available to me.
Dr. Brahme was very thoughtful while speaking with me. His nurse Cynthia was in the room and very patient with all of my questions. Janelle in the office was also very nice and helpful.The overall experience was outstanding and I am scheduled from my procedures. My daugher is also coming in for a procedure.Great experience.
Well . . . I'm still healing so we'll see . . . :)
The staff treated me with kindness and dignity. Although I can be anxious regarding surgery (having had 2 c-sections), it really was a most pleasant experience. Dr. Brahme was very kind and highly professional (probably because he went to the University of Michigan!) - and the anesthesiologist was wonderful and a very calming presence. I was not able to find someone to drive me to my first post-op appointment and the nurse was kind enough to come to my house, which was MUCH appreciated.
I have already decided that Dr. Brahme and Christina are the best medical team in the business. I have complete confidence in their expertise and their candidness. I've had a full facelift with Dr. B in 2007 and he did a fantastic job. I will schedule both procedures discussed when I can block off 6 weeks of down time from my athletic pursuits and when I am a bit further into my new relationship to be able to divulge the fact that I'm getting some cosmetic surgery. I think the fall of 2012 looks good. I'd do the mini face lift right now and save the breast lift for later, but the cost savings for doing both together seem too good to pass up. If there's ever a time when you need a quick fill-in" for the mini facelift, I could be available to do it on a moment's notice if I could later do the breast lift for the price of doing both concurrently. Sorry to be so cost conscious, but I need to be."
Staff and surgeon were very informative and profession. I felt like I was in good hands.
La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery center made me feel extremely comfortable before, during and after my surgery. They calmed my fears, answered all of my questions, and made me feel even more confident and comfortable about my decision to have plastic surgery. Everyone there is warm and inviting and made my experience a wonderful one.
I was highly satisfied with my experience because all staff were personable and talented. My OR room had a wonderful atmosphere with rock music, happy well-trained people that loved their job and loved me as their patient! My results exceeded my expectations! My surgeon Dr Brahme gave me real down to earth infomation over my surgery and the greatest boobs I've ever had.Thank you everybody and see you soon.
Dr. Brahme's staff are very knowledgeable and kind. I had lots of pre and post op questions and even though I was probably an irritant to them, they never treated me that way and always made time for me and gave me excellent medical advive. Dr. Brahme is also very knowledgeable and kind but I spent most of my time pre and post op with the nurseswhich is to be expected) and want to underscore how impressed I was by them.
I have been a patient of dr.brahmes for 11 years. I love his work and the staff.
Everything was explained very clear. I just need to save up some more money.
I am a repeat client and it was because of the welcoming, comfortable office and staff and also the talented Dr. Brahme that won me over. The entire staff from start to finish were awesome. It is a great team, and I have recommended this office to many of my friends and family. Hi Five to LJCSC
Only thing I was ever not satisfied with is the size they came out to be. The service is great. I especially loved Ashley!
Mentally I wasn't ready to see the outcome of the surgery. Also, my expectations of interaction with the surgeon were high and most of my interaction was with the nurses in the office during my follow up appointments. Once I meet with the surgeon at the 3 month mark, we will discuss the results in depth. Majority of the experience was highly satisfied.
I have always been very happy with LJCSC and staff. I had a browlift 3 yrs ago, Dr. Brahme was the surgeon and I am very happy with the results, I am considering to have in the near future an eyelid procedure and would like for him to do it. He is wonderful and most importantly, I trust him!
Everything and everyone was awesome! wonderful experience! would highly recommend!
Satisfaction based on information provided about procedures. Promptness in addressing my questions and concerns. Feedback and advice from staff that underwent my cosmetic procedure of choice. Level of trust earned from staff based on attentiveness and information provided.
Living in the Fresno area made some of the communication slightly harder. But the staff overcame this obstacle and kept in contact with me. Janelle was especially accommodating to me beings I was active duty. She helped accommodate my schedule in with the Center. Amazing effort overall keeping me informed with everything. I have already given three friends interested in a breast augmentation La Jolla's information as well as my surgeons name.
THE STAFF IS AMAZING. IT REALLY HELPED HAVING NURSES THERE THAT HAVE HAD THE PROCEDURE ,THEY GAVE ME INSIDE ADVISE AND INFO THAY I WOULD HAVE NEVER THOUGHT OF.THEY LEFT ME VERRY PREPARED WITH WHAT TO EXPECT AND HOW TO TAKE CARE OF ANYTHING THAT MIGHT COME UP.IT REALLY PUT ME AT EASE.THEY ARE AMAZING ( I LOVE SHANNON ) THANK YOU
The outcome was very good and worth the slight discomfort i went through
Dr. Brahme and his staff made it so comfortable and relxing that I felt i was with family. I recomend him to all my friends, family and total complete strangers. His work is fantasic and he takes his time to make sure its 100\% to your satisfaction. Thanks Dr. Brahme....
I am highly satisfied simply because of the sexy" results I recieved. My tummy tuck made me look like I am a curvey figure but yet healthy. My eyes are pheonominal. It took 10 years off my face. "
It was just a smooth transition. When I decided I wanted to have the surgery it was best for me to get it done as soon as possible and they made a place for me in the schedule
The staff and pre/post surgery experience is 5 star! My only issue is the appearance of loose skin following my tummy tuck. I will be discussing with my surgeon during my next post op visit.I would definitely return for future procedures and highly recommend the medical group to others!
I had brought my 7yr old daughter with me to my consultation, which I figured wasn't very common for breast aug. appt. But the receptionist was so great and greeted my daughter first. Then when we were in the exam room the nurse had made a game out of the implant displays" and played with her, it was cute. Then of course Dr. Brahme was great at making feel comfortable. I hate having my shirt off because of the way my breasts look, even with Drs. So I just want to say thank you to all the staff. And I cant wait to get my surgery done. "
The staff was friendly and personable, sharing with me their surgical experiences and photos. At every step, they were considerate of my needs, offering refreshments and answering questions.
I was highly satisfied because I saw my acquaintance's photi in the before and after book and I know she really does look that improved and because the doctor is very experienced.
The doctor, nurse and staff were very courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. I felt at ease and confident that I would get the results that I was looking for.
Everyone from the receptionist to the surgeon were extremely kind. It's very obvious that they really care about their patients and take great pride in their work.
Everything turned out perfect and the staff made everything run so smoothly that I will never go anywhere else
Everyone was very detailed and explained and answered more than I even asked for. It was a great experience.
