5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Lost a Bunch of Weight - Got Rid of Excess Skin - Coronado, CA

BEST Plastic Surgeon. He was so wonderful with communicating beforehand, following up to make sure the surgery was impeccable afterwards, and never made me feel like my appointments were rushed. I got consultations from other plastic surgeons and I found many of them to come off as arrogant, but Dr. Brown was anything but that. He even had to do some followup care, and I felt like he "threw...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

33 Year Old Mom of 2 Needed Breast Lift and Implants - La Jolla, CA

If I could give Dr. Brown 10 stars I would. I am almost 5 months post op and I could not be happier with the results. After having two kids in two years I needed my breasts fixed. I went to see Dr.Brown and my first impression was he is very nice, friendly and professional. His staff is very friendly and helpful as well as knowledgeable. Dr. Brown performed a breast lift with implants...

So Happy to Find Dr Brown. - La Jolla, CA

I have naturally thin lips and wanted to give them some more volume. With some research I found Dr Brown and saw what excellent reviews he has on Yelp and knew I had to book an appointment. Upon meeting the Dr I was instantly at ease and comfortable in his care. Dr brown has an exceptionally professional yet warm air about him. He skillfully and painlessly gave me my desired look with full but...

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction

23 Year Old Male, Gyno, Self Conscious, Needed This - La Jolla, CA

When I met Dr. Brown, he didn't jump right into the procedure details or ask me what the issue was but instead talked to me as a friend. He genuinely wanted to get to know me as a human being and then he wanted to help me not only as a patient but as a friend. Dr. Brown restored my self confidence and to that I say, thank you.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Much Needed Breast Reduction. Coronado, CA

As I said in my review, Dr. Brown made me feel comfortable and secure even as he was measuring and poking at my chest during my pre-op appointment. He is calm and knowledgeable, and is all business in a good way. He's a perfectionist, which is good news for his patients--my chest is perfectly symmetrical and a good size for my frame. He gave me his personal number for any questions I had after surgery, he always answered texts, calls and emails promptly, and he answered my hundreds of questions happily. I highly recommend Dr. Brown to anyone.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision

37 Years Old Breast Revision. San Diego, CA

One of my saline implants deflated in October and I had a Dr. Ijad had them for 15 years. Morgan in Atlanta deflate the other one. At the time, I couldn't afford surgery. In November, sent Dr. Brown pic and I had a phone consult. His assistant booked a preop and a surgery date for the 21st of December. The preop was 2 hr. I had to fill a ton of paperwork and the doc took pic and measurements....

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

30yr Old Fit Mom Smart Lipo Touch Up After Mommy Makeover. San Diego, CA

I got a mommy makeover (mini tummy tuck and breast aug) 2 years ago. I feel that I am in great shape just needing a few touch ups to be what i want. I love to workout, but lately I have not had the time to be as active as I want. I think I could get the results I want with working out I just don't the hours to do it. I think smart lipo will give me the boast I need. I love my surgeon inNC...

5 out of 5 stars Cellulaze

Cellulite Be Gone! My Journey to Become Cellulite Free at 30 - La Jolla, CA

He's AMAZING! He will not be happy until YOU'RE happy. He is great at telling you what he thinks needs to be done and does a great job. Answers questions or concerns and is very patient. I have been going to Dr. Brown for the last 2 years and I think he will be the only one I'll continue to go to. Thank you Dr Brown!
