IN THE NEWS

Our Founder Marie Olesen of La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre and Medical Spa: Five Things You Need To Be A Highly Effective Leader During Turbulent Times.

Stay focused on your mission…do not let the uncertainties damage your core systems, in our case caring for patients with kindness and competence. With COVID safety protocols, we cannot care for the same number of people, so we had to develop new ways of caring for patients within our facilities safely and responsibly.

As part of my series about the “Five Things You Need To Be A Highly Effective Leader During Turbulent Times”, I had the pleasure of interviewing Marie Olesen, CEO of La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre and Medical Spa. Marie teaches and speaks internationally on the interrelated topics of patient satisfaction and business performance. She’s created two software companies to enable practices to define, deliver and monitor care touchpoints and measure patient satisfaction. The focus of Marie’s career has centered around two principles.

Breast Augmentation

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

Scar Revision

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

Breast Reduction

Dr. Saltz and Nurse Ruth were both wonderful throughout the entire process. My reduction literally changed my life! I am so happy with my results. Dr. Saltz was great about making sure I understood the procedure and healing process. Ruth was also available to answer all of my questions and didn’t make me feel bad about messaging her with questions others might consider silly. The best thing would be my results! I had 10lbs of breast tissue removed, my new breasts look very balanced with my body and the freedom the surgery has given me is amazing.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Saltz understood my anatomy and the look I was going for better than any other doctor I consulted with. The results of my surgery are fantastic--better than I could have hoped for. The communication with her nurse Ruth and all of the insight and information Dr. Saltz provided me with left me feeling at ease about my surgery and knowing that I was in good hands. [Single best thing is...] Dr. Saltz is a true artist--a mom in her mid-30's, I have finally gotten the gorgeous, well-proportioned breasts I have always yearned for, and with no post-surgical complications!

All of my questions were answered for my procedure. Everyone was very knowledgeable and professional during the consultation. Very easy to talk to and listened to my concerns.

Tummy Tuck

I’m a diabetic, my A1C was higher than 7. Dr. Smoot was so honest he refused to do the surgery until my numbers went down. He told me “it was for my safety and not his convenience.” I have even more respect for Dr. Smoot.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Saltz and Ruth were very candid about what to expect with the removal of my implants. I appreciate their honesty, even if it may be a little rough to hear. I had my breast augmentation done by Dr. Saltz, which turned out beautiful, so I trust her to do a beautiful job this time as well!
