5 out of 5 stars Chin Implant

Finally have the chin I've always wanted!

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Amazing results !

Dr. Alexander is not only a very talented plastic surgeon, he is a kind and honest person as well. I had several opinions from four well known doctors about my sagging upper eyelids. Dr. Alexander was my choice. I found his approach to my concerns conservative and minimalistic . It was exactly what I wanted and needed to hear. His stuff was easy to talk to and very sweet to me. The...

A Much Needed "Pick Me Up" - La Jolla, CA

If you are considering a procedure or surgery I highly recommend Dr Alexander. He's amazing and caring, has a wonderful "bedside" manner and actually called and text messaged me after my surgery! The staff are trained professionals and are quick to answer calls and questions no matter what time of day! Cynthia was an absolute blessing through this whole experience. I live in Florida and flew...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

A Much Needed Mommy Make over - La Jolla, CA

I am so grateful to Dr. Alexander. After having kids and breastfeeding, I had lots of stretch marks and the shape of my breast changed dramatically. I had a "Mommy makeover" a tummy tuck and breast augmentation and I now feel I have the best body ever. My surgery had no complications, the after care was easy and the support from Dr. Alexander and staff was phenomenal. I decided to do the...

5 out of 5 stars Quick Lift

59 Year Old Woman "Quick Lift5" San Diego, CA

Dr. Alexander was meticulous and did exactly what I asked for. The Quick Lift was much easier than I thought and I did not even need pain pills. Dr. Alexander and his staff were extremely attentive and I cannot recommend him or his staff highly enough.

Retired Grandmother - La Jolla, CA

5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

Mini Face Lift. San Diego, CA

Just wonderful - the doctor was calm, patient, and extremely skilled. He showed the utmost care also in follow ups. His staff was marvelous and I learnt later that some of his nurses worked in his office for 30 years (already with the father), what better testimony of a great surrounding is there?

5 out of 5 stars Quick Lift

Quick Lift Gave Me a 10 Year Reversal in Appearance No Regrets! San Diego, CA

Dr. John Alexander II, In my opinion, and the opinion of friends to whom I have referred, is nothing less than the most qualified and best surgeon for a quicklift and other cosmetic surgery in San Diego. He has an extremely professional staff, a pristine surgery center with the highest degree of qualified anesthesiologists, (dr.'s) PA's and Nursing associates. Dr. Alexander would be my first choice in seeking any cosmetic surgery procedure. I sought no less than eight opinions from other cosmetic surgeons in San Diego, prior to meeting Dr. Alexander. I chose Dr. John Alexander for cosmetic surgery and I am very happy that I did. The results were fabulous with no adverse post surgery. I use other services with his fabulous PA, Joanna and find all of his employees/staff to be extremely knowledgable in each facet of cosmetic enhancements. I will be seeking more surgery this year with Dr. Alexander.

3 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

Mid-face and Neck Lift - La Jolla, CA
