Training & Education of Dr. Brahme

San Diego Surgeon Johan Brahme
San Diego Plastic Surgeon Johan E. Brahme, M.D.

My family immigrated to the United States when I was in high school. We settled in San Diego, where my father was a professor at the UCSD medical school. Later, I went to UCSD myself both as a medical student and in plastic surgery. While I was training in plastic surgery, I became involved in a program called Interface, which focuses on providing cleft lip and palate surgery to poor children in Mexico. We travel to small clinics all over Mexico and perform life-changing operations. To this day, it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. To light up a child’s face with a new smile is a gift I am glad that I am able to give.

After completing UCSD, I decided to stay in San Diego and open my practice. I remained on the faculty at UCSD, advising and teaching residents. After a few years in solo practice, I was invited to join the prestigious La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre. I am happy to be part of the practice which has been voted the best cosmetic surgery practice in San Diego 12 times since 2008. I have served as President of the San Diego Plastic Surgery Society and continue to be involved in the international outreach program Interface.
