It’s Time to Retire…


“As many of you have already heard, I will be leaving my plastic surgery practice on December 21, 2022. I have enjoyed getting to know and help thousands of patients such as yourself over the past thirty-three years. Much as I enjoy surgery, it’s time to let the next generation of surgeons pick up the baton and carry on.

La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre prides itself on having excellent surgeons and providing superior patient care. For those of you who have had surgery since October 31, 2022, all follow-up care you need will be provided by one of the experienced surgeons I am leaving behind.

If you find you have new cosmetic interests in mind in the future, please consider Dr. Luke Swistun or Dr. Diana Bresiter for your breast and body contouring surgeries.

Dr. Swistun came to us several years ago from a prestigious practice in Beverly Hills and has been my protégé ever since. I consider him an excellent surgeon. The Centre will continue to keep your medical records on file for seven years as required by law. If you should need a copy of any part (or all) of your chart, please contact the office.

The question I am repeatedly asked is, “What do you plan to do?” I will never be at a loss for something to do. I have numerous interests outside plastic surgery many of which have not been indulged in enough over all these years. I enjoy birding, card-making, and gardening. There are so many books on my shelves waiting to be read, a house that needs to be deep cleaned, and online classes to be taken in all sorts of things. My husband and I want to see more of the United States and visit our children more often. My only worry is that I won’t have enough time left to do everything I want to.

Thank you for trusting me with your care and sending your friends and family to me. A few of you have been with me for twenty to thirty years and have become like family. I will carry the memories with me for the rest of my life.

Her History with La Jolla Cosmetic

San Diego female plastic surgeon Dr. Lori Saltz

Lori H. Saltz, M.D., has been an integral part of La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre from joining the practice back in 1990 to her retirement in December 2022.

She retires with a large following of very satisfied breast and body contouring patients. Her practice grew over the years because her patients refer their friends and family and return themselves for “maintenance.”

Following her retirement, La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre welcomed one of San Diego’s most respected female board-certified plastic surgeons to the practice, Diana Breister Ghosh, M.D.
