Celebrating 31 Years of Helping San Diego Get GLAM

July 1, 2019 marked La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre’s 31st year in business—a huge milestone when you consider that when we started out in 1988, we were one of the only practices of our kind in the entire country!

Since then, we’ve served over 36,000 patients, established one of San Diego’s most comprehensive medical spas, and become an integral part of the San Diego community.

Unwavering dedication to patient service, education, safety, and results is the foundation of our practice. We believe in individualized care and help patients reach their personal goals with the most advanced techniques, technologies, and treatments available.

Our reputation for providing the best in cosmetic surgery care has helped us retain the “cream of the crop” in aesthetic care providers. We have an extraordinary team of board certified plastic surgeons, nurses, medical spa providers, and staff!

In fact, we’re more than a medical practice: we are a family, and our patients are a big part of it. Reflecting back on the last 31 years, here’s what a few of our staff members had to say:

“Working as a nurse at LJC has been one of the most dynamic jobs I have ever had. Our team not only shows immense skill in our care—we show kindness and compassion for the best possible outcome for each patient who walks into the operating room. It’s amazing to be in a place where our plastic surgeons perform life-changing work on a daily basis. I am lucky to have been a part of a team that has had continued success for 31 years and look forward to providing excellent service as a part of the perioperative team for years to come.”Paula, RN, Lead Operating Room Nurse

“Essentially, there are two things that keep us going strong at LJC. One, we have the best surgeons and friendliest staff you can find. Two, we keep up with new technology, but only implement the technologies that we are confident will safely deliver the best results.”Amy, Patient Support Services

“LJC has been around as long as I have been alive. I have spent half of my life here (14 years). My work family has seen me grow up and supported me through life’s real moments. This is a true testament of what we bring to our patient experience. Our doctors and staff are the most honest and compassionate people I know, and we make everyone feel at home.”Brittney, Project Manager

“There is nothing better than working in a company with a great company culture. Having a positive work culture reflects positively on employee retention and company success. Needless to say, that’s exactly what we have at LJC!”Raychel, RN, BSN, Director of Nursing

Here’s a little infographic that sums up our story and our culture at LJC. Take a look and feel free to share with a friend who’s considering cosmetic surgery in San Diego. Most importantly of all, THANK YOU to all our patients for helping make LJC the smart, safe place to get GLAM!
