La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre Reviews (2513)


He was very attentive to how I wanted my procedure to be done as well as suggesting new innovated ideas to make my new change done right. He has passion and I sensed that.

Breast Reduction

I was very satisfied with my initial virtual consult and will be moving forward with booking the surgery, however, I look forward to meeting with Dr. Smoot in person to get a real perspective on how things will look and measurements, proportions etc.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Smoot and his nurse gave me great advice and information about implant removal. I felt comfortable and trusted the information given to me. I look forward to my procedure in the near future with Dr. Smoot. Thank you so much.

Tummy Tuck

The staff communicated well and there were no questions about the details of the Zoom. Everyone was very friendly and it was as easy as it could be navigating through these COVID-19 barriers.

Eyelid Surgery

Facilities are clean, warm & with a sense of calm, staff is attentive makes you feel at home. Physician was clear, thorough and competent.

Mole Removal

Good advice.

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

Johan Brahme, MD La Jolla , CA

Chin Implant

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.

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Salazar was kind, patient, answered all of my questions, and made me feel totally comfortable moving forward with my surgery. I am relieved to have found a surgeon that I genuinely trust.

Hair Transplant

Dr. Salazar gave a thorough explanation of the process in a timely manner and was very pleasant and willing to listen to my questions and concerns. Also a very nice doctor.

Doctor and staff are attentive to detail and explain everything. They help to normalize what could be an uncomfortable situation.

Vaginal Rejuvenation / Tightening

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.

Johan Brahme, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Augmentation

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.

Lori Saltz, MD La Jolla , CA

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Saltz and her assistant were so generous with their time and listened with care as I asked advise regarding issues I was having with very old implants. I was very nervous but they were very patient and understood why I was concerned.

Breast Augmentation

Very personalized experience and thorough exam.

Johan Brahme, MD La Jolla , CA


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!

Breast Augmentation

Everyone in the office was very welcoming and willing to answer any questions I had. Went over and above to help make sure we found the right sizing for my body shape. I had never done a consultation like this before and I felt very comfortable.

Lori Saltz, MD La Jolla , CA
