Face Lift

Wonderful communication and care from my surgeon and his nurse. Care surgeon took with pre surgery marking on areas for surgery. Lovely after care and quick response to questions. Great facility and wonderful employees. Good response to the very few questions I did have.They worked with me to help me understand the aftercare for laser, which I had along with my surgery.

Johan Brahme, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

Beautiful look, take good care of patients

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Roark is a life changer. He is a perfectionist and highly skilled. He takes his time with me in each appointment and I feel everything is going so well because of his care for me. His nurse Sarah has always been quick when I reach out to her with a concern. It's so amazing what a great efficient team they are. I always feel I can reach out to Sarah and she helps me through or orders the medication I need. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Roark, Sarah, and the rest of the team. My whole experience with each appointment since my surgery has been great. The time and care I have received and am still receiving is above what I expected. If I plan anything else in my future requiring surgery I will definitely request Dr. Roark. I trust him completely.

John Smoot, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

Dr Smoot and his staff were everything I could have imagined. I did thorough research before getting my BA and looked into many different places. Upon my consultation here, I knew that this was the place I wanted to go. They are absolutely professional, caring, and the facility is beautiful. I traveled from out of town to get my surgery and my coordinator and nurses never failed to check in via emails/phone calls to get me pumped and ready for my surgery. I am ecstatic with my results and am constantly told how natural my breasts look even just after a couple of months! Thank you to Dr Smoot and all of his staff. You guys are rockstars and I am excited to continue to keep in touch as I continue to heal.

Face Lift

very satisfied except for not being told about the swelling on my face especially my eyes. Surgery was Sept 12 and today I sill have blurring vision and eye lids hurt and are extremely swollen, don't remember anyone telling me what to except. Persons are saying I look oriental when they see me. It does make me laugh, all my family says the same thing. When will the swelling go down. Thanks great experience, it was a good job.

Lori Saltz, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Saltz, Ruth and their team were amazing. They made everything very simple. I am only a few hours post op and I feel great, hardly any discomfort and I am easily able to move my arms above my head also, I feel like my boobs already look great! I cannot day enough great things about the team. They will always be my go to for all my cosmetic needs.

Eyelid Surgery

They listened to me and did the procedure I had requested. The anesthesiologist did a great job, although I did wake up enough to be a little uncomfortable once during the surgery. I can see much more! I think my night vision is better as well because there is more light entering my eyes. I think I also look more alert and rested.

Lori Saltz, MD La Jolla , CA

Tummy Tuck

Great staff, fast responses to questions. Fantastic results!

John Smoot, MD La Jolla , CA

Eyelid Surgery

The best thing, of course, is the results! Pre-surgery; at a time in my life when I wasn't feeling very positive about the way I presented myself to the public, and to some extent, family, and feeling like people didn't look you in the eye anymore, the staff at LJCSC turned all of this around. I was so very pleased at the way I was treated. Like a friend and girlfriend. Smiles from everyone, a comforting hand on my shoulder, sharing experiences and stories. Being asked questions about my life and family.This all helped and was so appreciated. Carmen, Sarah, Dr. Smoot were the BEST! A better than expected experience. I am truly grateful.

Johan Brahme, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

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!

Tummy Tuck

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.

Johan Brahme, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

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.
