Read the profiles below of all three women, all patients of the La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre, and see if you guessed correctly.


“Samantha” (breast augmentation patient), is a 36-year-old proud mother of “one wonderful three-year-old boy.” She is originally from the Bay Area, but has lived in San Diego for almost 15 years now. She and her husband own a retail management company and three specialty retail stores in Seaport Village. In her spare time, she loves to do anything water-related, such as surfing, wakeboarding, wake surfing, sailing, or snowboarding. “There is nothing better than a day on the water with your family and friends.” Here’s what else Samantha had to say:

“I always thought in my mind I would eventually get the body I wanted. After my son was born, I realized I was waiting for a miracle, so instead of waiting, I made it happen.”

“My husband and I loved everyone we met at the office. We interviewed several doctors around San Diego and loved Dr. Brahme.”

“I never think twice about my looks now.”


“Karen” (breast augmentation patient), 23 years old, is a born-and-raised Southern California girl. “I have lived here all my life and I love it!” Married in November 2005, she does not have any children (yet!). Karen is a Domestic Engineer (aka, a housewife). “I love staying at home and taking care of my husband.” When asked what the motivating factors were for her decision to have plastic surgery, here’s what she said:

“Not feeling as feminine as I would like. When it came to wearing certain outfits, sometimes having a smaller chest was an advantage … but more that often than not, I would wish that I had larger breasts.”

“My experience with LJCSC was completely different from any other plastic surgeon’s office I went to. The atmosphere was welcoming and calming. They were so patient and willing to spend as much time as needed to make me feel comfortable making my decision. Shelly was so helpful, she even called me the day after my first consultation to see if there were any additional questions that I had. I just love love love LJCSC and I recommend them to everyone I know. I am so happy with the results. I have no problem talking openly about my procedure!”

“Bikini shopping is the BEST thing EVER! I don’t even need to try them on. I know every single one I buy will fit perfectly. And now I can buy them off the rack like at Target for $30 compared to the $100+ I was spending on suits before … because I could never find any that fit the way I wanted.”


“Jill” (breast augmentation patient), a 31-year-old, is from Northern California and relocated to San Diego a few years ago. She is a dance/fitness instructor, student, and full-time mother of her 5-year-old and 20-month-old boys. In her spare time, she loves to dance (of course!), run, and read. Jill decided to go ahead with her surgery when she knew she was finished having children. Here’s what Jill says about her decision:

“I just wanted to get back to the way I felt before I was constantly on mommy duty. I feel like I am myself again.”

“I chose LJCSC in part because of their amazing website. Most of my questions were answered before I even got to the office. I love how friendly every one of the staff members is.”

“I feel like my surgery allowed for the best parts of me to come shining through. What a bonus! I thought I was just going in to alter my outward appearance, but came out with an attitude adjustment. Two for the price of one!”
