RealSelf community says"Many PS's do not want to invest in this and so they downplay the necessity of using a pain pump." "I already has my breasts done by her and they turned out incredible." "Best decision I could have made was trusting Dr. Clark with my Tummy Tuck procedure."

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
She's a top notch Stanford trained surgeon. She gave me very realistic expectations and is known for natural results. She listens to what you want, and gives you honest feedback. She spends plenty of time with you, answers your questions, and you never feel rushed. It helps that she's a woman and has had procedures herself, so she can relate in ways that many other docs can't even fathom. I work in medicine and I'm quite critical, but was pleasantly surprised by the professionalism of everyone I Interacted with in the office and adjoining surgery center.

Dr. Christa Clark is amazing! I had already heard great things about her so I decided to go in for a consultation thinking I would take some time on my decision. Instead I immediately scheduled my appointment with her caring staff. She did a mommy makeover - tummy tuck, breast lift and lipo. She knew exactly what I wanted and listened to my concerns. My goal was to look as natural as...

52 Years Old, 2 Great Kids, Need a Tummy Tuck, Breast Lift and a Bit of Lipo to Get "Me" Back - Folsom, CA
Dr. Christa Clark is incredible! I am so lucky to have found her. She did a mommy makeover - tummy tuck, breast lift with augmentation and lipo. She listened to my concerns over being too big in the chest area and made sure that my lift and the implants were just right for me. The tummy tuck is beautiful, and the lipo areas I can't believe are as smooth as they are now. Dr. Clark is so caring and knowledgeable. She answered all my questions and even sent me to a bra fit specialist so I'd know exactly what I'd be looking at when the lift was done. She is wonderful. Her staff is incredible, friendly and knowledgeable. The anesthesiologist (Dr. Anderson) was also so awesome. The surgery facility was clean and professional and everyone there was truly happy to be there - it made it a wonderful experience. Post-op care has been awesome. I also hired a professional after care technician - Radora Goold (she has a website...) she took care of me the first 3 days and gave me such peace of mind. This has been an incredibly positive experience and I know Dr. Clark and her staff are the reason why. I am so grateful to them for everything.

Dr. Clark is one of a kind. Her disposition and personality are so pleasant. I really looked forward to the time I spent with her in the appointments and surgery. She is very skilled at what she does and you can tell she really cares about the end result that you want not what she wants. She is very good at hearing what your expectations and wishes are and finding a way to make that happen. I can't speak more highly of her and would recommend her without hesitation.

I would never go to another surgeon after going to her. I am constantly stopped at the gym by women asking what exercises I did to get such a flat stomach, and all I say is my personal trainer is "Christa Clark" and then I tell them how she helped give me back my confidence. I will go to see her for all my cosmetic surgery needs and have sent countless friends to see her. My friends joke that I am constantly pulling up my shirt to show off my torso.

I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Clark. I had met with another PS many years earlier that had made me feel uneasy about reasons for breast augmentation. Through surgery I wanted to improve myself, not change something that was bad. For this decision I needed to be completely confident in my choice and my surgeon. Internet searches led me to Dr. Kauffman and Clark's website which promotes the natural result slogan. It was very important to me to select a size that fit my body but was not too large. Dr. Clark took the time to really listen to my story and goals. In the end, I asked her to select my implant size. They're perfect!
5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation
I have always been an A cup - during my pregnancy I went up to a C cup and loved my boobs. So after I was all done having kids I decided it was my turn and had breast implants. I interviewed 3 other doctors in the area - all were men. Once I found Dr. Clark I was done. She is so warm and down to earth - no big ego like with other plastic surgeons. She is like a girlfriend. And she is a Mom - so she totally understands. I recommend her to all my friends.

Dr. C and her team are really great! They are patient and answer all questions knowledgably. I never felt rushed. They have a separate waiting room for people going into surgery or who are post-op and not comfortable waiting in the main waiting room, which is awesome. She gave my husband her cell phone number and said to call anytime, 24/7, if I needed anything. She and her partner also volunteer around the world to help repair cleft palates and other things requiring a PS. Excellent people, excellent doctors.
5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Revision
I went to see Dr. Clark after 6 years of living with botched breast implants (done by a different doctor). During the consultation I instantly knew I wanted to go with her! Not only does her work speak for itself, she puts you at ease and really listens to what you want. From the consultation, to surgery, to all of the post-ops the staff was so caring and everything went so well. I got a lift and new breast implants that doubled in size, which are now perfect for my frame. She had to cut muscle to make a more of a pocket which my previous surgeon did not do correctly. My experience was great and I now love my gorgeous new breasts! Thank you Dr. Clark and Staff!! L Morgan

I had done research online and asked for referrals from friends that have had the procedure. I found Dr. Clark and booked a consultation. I liked that she was a woman and that she really listened to me. I was glad that she has a surgery center at her office. Her staff were real professionals as well. I had an easy surgery and revovery. Had to call the office twice during my recovery with questions and they were right there for me. Surgery is a big deal for anyone, escpecially elective surgery. I feel that I made an informed decision and have no regrets choosing Dr. Clark. I wouldn't hesitate to recomend her.

If you have been considering a breast augmentation but are concerned that getting implants now might impact your ability to breastfeed in the future, you aren’t alone; a lot of women share this concern. The results of a study recently published in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, should ease your mind a bit. The study compared breastfeeding success rates for women with silicone breast implants to those without implants. Both first-time moms and those with multiple children w...
Having kids is a great adventure—often joyful, sometimes challenging, and totally worth it. But the effects of this adventure on your breasts and body—sagging, deflated breasts, stretched skin, and a still-bulging belly—are not necessarily things you want to keep as mementos. A mommy makeover can undo these changes, and many new moms can’t wait to get back their flat tummies and perky breasts. Having had two kids myself, I understand the desire to look and f...
