La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre

Plastic Surgery in La Jolla, CA
Plastic Surgery in La Jolla, CA La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre (LJCSC) is highly-respected practice in San Diego, California. Our education and informed consent materials have been disseminated and translated into five languages, while our patient care and communication systems are used by more than 1200 plastic surgeons across the globe. But twenty years ago, a center for cosmetic surgery was a rather unusual idea.

Most people thought cosmetic surgery was for the rich and famous. It was far from mainstreamto say the least. During this time our founder, Dr. Olesen, was actually Head of the Division of Plastic Surgery at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla, CA. It was in this traditional multi-specialty setting that Dr. Olesen realized his cosmetic surgery patients had very different needs than the typical medical patient. Unlike medical patients who were driven by disease, deformity or trauma, his cosmetic patients were driven by emotional concerns as well as physical complaints.

Specifically, Dr. Olesen wanted things for his patients that were not possible in a large multi-specialty setting. So he established LJCSC in 1988 and the rest, as they say, is history.

Products & Services

Face Surgery
read moreFacial rejuvenation or facial surgery include some wonderful age-defying procedures such as facelifts, eyelid lifts, brow lifts, and neck lifts. Facial contouring procedures include popular choices such as rhinoplasty and chin implant. Patients seeking these procedures want to look better, not necessarily younger, although both goals are usually achieved.
Breast Enhancement
read moreBreast surgery has helped many San Diego women feel more confident and feminine. Having been steadily refined over the last four decades, cosmetic breast breast surgery gives many patients a renewed, positive self-image. Because breast surgery has successful outcomes for so many women, it continues to be a favorite cosmetic procedure.
Body Contouring
read moreBody contouring surgery encompasses a number of different procedures - all designed to improve your confidence. Whether by refining curves through liposuction or through the more dramatic changes offered with a tummy tuck, body contouring patients are among the most satisfied. Post weight loss, body lift procedures can offer new freedom to wear sleek clothing that shows a new, improved shape.

read moreId like to tell you a bit about myself so you can get to know me, my background, and my patient care philosophy. I have always felt that the more you know about someone, the better decisions you can make about who and what is right for you. And lets face it, this is all about you and your decisions.

My philosophy in patient care is essentially the application of the Golden Rule to care for every single patient the way I would want my own family to be treated. My team and I make you the center of your plastic surgery experience. It is about your body, your life, your desires, and your decisions. You will find us honest, caring, highly experienced, and qualified; ask anyone who has been here. Dr. Brahme
