“I finally feel comfortable in my own skin”.


Read About Carla’s Experience

When it comes to plastic surgery, almost every patient has a different story and motivation for deciding when the time is right. For Carla, a mother of five, ranging in ages from 14 to 26 years, she had many reasons. “I think having plastic surgery was always in the back of my mind, but being able to justify spending that money on myself was difficult.” Never one to really lack self-confidence, Carla says two life-changing moments made her change the way she felt about her body. “About 20 years ago I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. The way they performed the surgery left me with this big fold of skin on my stomach that never went away.” Years later, a lumpectomy was performed on one of her breasts, leaving her feeling lopsided. “Luckily the lesion was benign but because they took so much breast tissue, I could never get clothes to fit right.” A recommendation from a friend led her to Dr. Lori Saltz, a board certified plastic surgeon and Medical Director at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre.

With in depth knowledge of the medical profession from her career, the first thing Carla did was head to the Internet to research Dr. Saltz. “The most important thing to me was to find a qualified board certified Plastic Surgeon. Dr. Saltz’s qualifications and record were extremely impressive.” Carla met with Dr. Saltz and her team at LJC, to explore having a breast augmentation, breast lift, and a tummy tuck. After carefully reviewing realistic expectations for each of these procedures, Carla left feeling confident that her personal needs would be met. With a supportive fiancé by her side, Carla felt ready to make some long awaited changes.

“The thing about La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre is that everyone has a way of making it be so professional, while still warm and comfortable.“*Carla

Carla praised the staff on their friendly care and says Dr. Saltz’s work speaks for itself. When Carla first asked a friend which plastic surgeon to see, she figured that the best referral was a satisfied patient. Now Carla has joined the ranks of the many happy patients Dr. Saltz has treated over the years. Carla added, “The best thing I can say is that I finally feel comfortable in my own skin.”
