5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Repair

Love the Results! - San Diego, CA

I just read all of the reviews on this procedure and I'm shocked that so many people had negative or painful experiences. I just had the Fraxel Repair on August 6, 2008 and as of yesterday, August 13, I'm back to work, feeling great and absolutely thrilled with the experience and the results! I'm almost 55 years old, healthy and active, and I was ready to get "something" beyond Botox (the only...

Countdown to My Facelift and Upper/Lower Lid Lift - San Diego, CA

Well, I'm nearly a month out from having my facelift. I am ready! I am 55 years old and a professional woman in a male dominated engineering firm. I felt pretty good about my looks but had a bad bout with diverticulitis in 2015 which really knocked me for a loop. I spent 4 days in the hospital and lost about 13 pounds in a week. It really took nearly 3 months to totally recover. With that...

5 out of 5 stars Facial

My Skin Looks Amazing!

I just finished 3 facial peels with Marci Pastel, licensed aesthetician at Del Mar Plastic Surgery. The peels were done 30 days apart and I can't say how amazing my skin looks and feels! I had a photo taken recently with my cousin who is 20 years younger than I am. Our skin looks exactly the same! I was floored and so very happy! Marci is incredible. She initially spent a lot of time...

27, 3 Kids, 110lb, 5'6" 300cc silicone - San Diego, CA

After having three kids, my breasts are small and deflated. I just finished breastfeeding about a month ago, and I'm finally viewing a breast augmentation as a near-future reality rather than a distant desire. I'm currently between 34A and 32B (though I certainly don't think they look like B's.) I've contacted a local PS and asked lots of questions. I've compiled an extensive list of "wish...

33yo, Breastfed 1 Baby, 5'1", 114lbs - La Jolla, CA

I breastfed my beautiful daughter for almost a year; She is 4yo now and my old bras have never fit the same way. I enjoy going to the gym and have probably burned more fat in my chest, resulting to more padded bras in my drawers. I am 5'1" and 114lbs. I want to go for a natural look, yet pay for something worth noticing for myself. I am excited to finally do this and thought it would be a...

Male Full Face Lift Plus Arm Lift - San Diego, CA

Lost 150 pounds. @ age 60 too much loose skin, especially under chin, (big flap) a nd huge flaps under both upper arms. WOW! So inspired now, I am working out with weights building arms up, very motivated with the new me. Makes me want more! (More good health, more desire to stick with my program)! My after pictures are very soon after surgery. I'm still swollen and sore (numb), but this...

51 Yr Old with 25 Yr Old Saline Implants Going from 325 Saline to 500CC Silicone - San Diego, CA

Nothing is really "wrong" with my breasts except when I lost weight (from 135 to 125)-I lost volume and looked I thought horrible in a triangle top. Missing upper pole fullness! Had my first consult a few weeks ago and already had in my mind the date of surgery so when the office staff said it would be available (without me telling her the date) I thought this was it! They are too far apart...

32 Years Old, No Kids. Breast Augmentation and Liposuction. San Diego, CA

I hope to get rid of stubborn fat rolls on my stomach and give my small different sized breasts a boost. I will be getting breast augmentation to a full C from a small B, and liposuction of my stomach,flanks, and back. I want to be able to wear all of my same shirts, just not with the padded bras that I always have to wear. Well going for my surgery tomorrow. I'm not nervous yet, but...

54 and Tired of Being Ashamed of my Legs - San Diego, CA

I had bariatric surgery 1/6/2009 after many years of yoyo diets gaining and losing my weight over and over again. Bariatric surgery gave me a new lease on life taking me from a size 26 pants to a size 6! But right alog withthat gfabulous loss is the loose skin from being so heavy - I was always mainly hips and legs! Last Sseptember 2014 I had an abdominoplasty with Dr. Larry Pollack and he did...

35, 3 Kids, Athletic Small Frame, Deflated A Cup to C - San Diego, CA

After breast feeding kids for a total of about 4 years, you can imagine the number it did in my boobs. I started with a full b, small c and after kids have ended up at a deflated aaaaaaa!!! I Love being in the ocean and at the pool and I'm tired of wearing a gapping bikini, padded bras and my kids asking me when my boobs are going to come back. Now to figure out what size to go.....I'm...
