5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Flawless! - La Jolla, CA

Dr. Saltz will give you her honest opinion, she wont try to sell you on a dream that is not realistic. She will do what you want her to do, but she will also add her own opinion which I personally appreciated!

Breast Lift with Augmentation - La Jolla, CA

Everything about my experience with Dr. Saltz and LJCSC was wonderful from start to finish. They answered my questions to my satisfaction, were wonderful taking my calls after the procedure when I'd have a concern, and I felt very welcome in their office. I cannot rave enough about the Dr, the procedure, or my beautiful new girls, I'm beyond thrilled.

Breast Lift with Augmentation, 1 Week Post Op - La Jolla, CA

Awesome dr who is so confident it has to rub off on you. She loves what she does and you can tell. Very much a perfectionist and in my opinion that's what you need for cosmetic surgery. Her nurse Ruth is the bomb also. Both very down to earth and listen to what you have to say about everything.

Bikini Ready Mom of 3 - San Diego, CA

Several friends had procedures with her as well, and all of them were very happy. I was always treated with respect and the staff continuously checked up on me.

Breast Augmentation After Child Birth - La Jolla, CA

A magazine. Don't remember the name. Other Dr's: I had seen several Dr's and all wanted to do a lift, of course with a ugly scar and charge thousands more for a lift. In all I saw a total of 5-6 doctors before choosing Dr. Saltz. She was the only one that said I did not need a lift. Office: LCSC office was great, smooth transition. I had another procedure with another Dr in that office and was sad to see Monique, the finance coordinator no longer there. Ruth, Dr. Saltz nurse was awesome. Made me feel at ease during this difficult decision and procedure.

27 Year Old Mother of Two Wanting 275cc Mod+ Unders - San Diego, CA

I joined this site not long ago. I decided I wanted a breast aug long before I started my research. Something about researching it seemed so daunting and overwhelming. I felt guilty for wanting it done, too, so never wanted to give it credence by seeing a doc or seriously investigating it. So i talked to a few friends who have had incredible work done, and finally decided, "to hell with it.....

GREAT JOB Dr Saltz! - La Jolla, CA

Dr Saltz was my surgeon in 2005. She did an amazing job! I loved them back then and still love them today. I look so natural that people have no idea I wasn't born with them. GREAT JOB Dr Saltz!

Mommy Makeover Time Finally TT with lipo BA, with lift - La Jolla, CA

I love Dr Saltz so far and I know this will be a great experience for me. Dr. Saltz and her nurse Ruth are so great. I email with all sorts of questions and they always answer. Dr. Saltz from La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center was so amazing! She is one of the few, very few female Doctors in San Diego and her work is stellar!! The whole office is warm and welcoming, even for my kiddies who had to come in with me to one appointment. Her nurse Ruth was awesome, she was super informative and really great. She showed me her scars as well and they looked great. Ruth actually comes to your house the day after surgery to remove catheters and re- dress the incision sites as well. I was very worried about getting back in the car the day after surgery. Problem solved!!
