5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

8 weeks PO - Feeling great, still feels better when I wear compression - San Diego, CA

Updated on 30 Apr 2012:I love my results so far, my PS is amazing, I am so happy I chose him! He is an absolute perfectionist, and he cares about his patients. He is an artist and you are his canvas, and he would never put his signature on something that he was not absolutely and totally satisfied with. Its not about the money, its about the art and science of his skill that sets him apart from other PS's. He is a cut above, and truly understands the aesthetics of PS and is a master at what he does. Love, love, love Dr Pietraszek and will recommend him to close friends and family, he IS the best!!!!! The aftercare you receive from this doctor is unbelievable, he sees you often, and believes aftercare plays a huge part in a successful long lasting result! In one word, REMARKABLE!

Professionalism at its finest. Dr. Pietraszek is absolutely at the top of his game in the field of cosmetic surgery. No scars, minimal bruising and swelling, and fantastic results. If your even considering cosmetic surgery, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Pietraszek as your physician of choice.

I Am So Glad I Had This Experience! - La Jolla, CA

All I can say is that I know the staff by first name! That should say enough! The impact that they have all had on me is a great one! Dr. Pietraszek is nothing short of a perfect Dr.! Tamara is great at what she does and fun along with it! Karen knows who you are as soon as you walk in or call. The OR staff although I only was with for a short time, Kim...my nurse...and Richard, my anastesiolist...were amazing! Kim needs to go touring hospitals and show wveryone how to do an IV...let me tell ya!

So Happy with my Experience! - San Diego, CA

From day one Dr. Pietraszek has been an amazing doctor. He is very thorough and explained everything in great detail at my consultation. He took his time to answer all my questions, no matter how strange they were. He has a very calming and friendly personality, which is one of the main reasons why I chose him. Another reason was because of his assistant, Tamara. She is absolutely amazing!!! She's so nice and friendly and really takes her time to make sure you have a personalized experience. Everyone at the La Jolla Institute of Plastic Surgery is great! It's not like some of the other offices I went to, which were flashy and intimidating. I am so happy with my results and I can't stop looking at myself in the mirror. I would definitely do it again and I recommend the surgery and Dr. P to anyone and everyone thinking about plastic surgery!

Brand New - San Diego, CA

Reffered by a friend who also had work done by Dr. Pietraszek. At my first visit I knew Dr. Pietraszek was the surgeon for me. His work is amazing. He is very thorough and his staff is wonderful, very comforting.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Flat Tummy; No Muffin Top - San Diego, CA

years of research on plastic surgeons - Dr. P was one of top 3 referred. My initial consult was for face lift, but that wasn't for me. my decision to do tummy tuck was quick - I was physically uncomfortable and unhappy. I am fit and slim, but middle-age tummy fat battle was winning - could not overcome with diet/exercise. the lobby video caught my eye, and was 'seller' for me to cut out the tummy fat and loose skin.

Very Happy in San Diego - La Jolla, CA

DR. P was a referral from two friends. I did do a consultation with another doctor also, but felt more comfortable with DR. P. He was more professional, not as "flashy", and had great reviews. Not only from on-line sources, but mostly from my two friends.

I was referral by a friend and since the first time I felt really comfortable and I truly trusted him. I would like to thank Dr. Pietraszek firstable for giving me the right information.

Love Dr. P! - San Diego, CA

Professional. Knowledgeable. Perfectionist. Came highly recommended by friends/prior patients. His years of experience made choosing him as my PA super easy. From the initial consultation to the day of surgery, the staff was courteous and helpful and made the process really easy. I wouldn't consider anyone else.
