Sure, we've got plenty of anti-aging treatments and procedures in house here at LJCSC, but there are some little things you can do outside of our clinic to keep that youthful look!
Hair color is one of the most effective anti-aging tools we have—except when it isn't. Take your dye job too far (or inky, or frosty) and you can add years to your appearance. Three top colorists weigh in on what to avoid.

My 5 stars go to Dr Roark and his kind hearted and attentive nurse Sarah. There was another staff members who I didn't feel was up to par with their patient care and customer service, but I overlooked that person because of the surgeons kind bedside manner, friendly, and kind personality and A+++ work!!! I'm highly satisfied with my breast augmentation and I believe Dr Roark is one of the best in the business!!! His RN Sarah prepared me with medications and very thorough aftercare instructions, even emailing me responses after office hours. Doctor Roark is the best! My sincere compliments, thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me an amazing experience!

20 years ago I had a chin implants by Dr. Michael Roark when he used to work in Alvarado Hospital, not only he used the wrong size chin implant for me, he placed it wrong above my chin and my face looked deformed. Post surgery I told him that it does not look right on my face, he said this is the way it will be and can not be changed. I suffered for twenty years looking ugly and deformed, I had so many people telling me what is wrong with your chin? I could not go to another doctor to correct it because I didnt have the money. Finally 3 weeks ago I went to another doctor and had the surgery again and I love my face with my new chin.

Breast Augmentation - Johan Brahme, MD From an A cup to A+ breasts!!! I never wanted to be “that girl” - the fake, self-worshiping kind, lacking self-confidence and trying to be someone or something else. Until the day I realized much worse... I was “that girl”. Every day was a phony act as I cried poor me and hid myself beneath unhappiness and jealousy. That attitude was far from the beauty that I knew was deep within. My life changed the moment I stepped foot in LJCSC. I never could have overcome my lifelong struggle of hiding behind inches of padding and embarrassment without the amazing staff and expertise of Dr. Brahme and Nurse Cristina. I was warmly welcomed and provided full attention and care from everyone. The consultation appointment alone should cost $1,000 – it was that amazing! These wonderful people answer all your questions, let you play with sizes, look at real patient before/after photos, meet the doctors and so much more, at no cost. Plus, they worked with me financially to make low monthly payments with no interest, and still I could schedule my surgery ASAP! And sometimes it’s the little things… with a post-surgery gift, I scheduled a hydrafacial with the Skin Care Clinic. Again, amazing results! 6 months later… they still invite me back for visits! I’m so excited to explore everything else this place has to offer. I now feel like a woman; a beautiful, curvaceous woman that I love and admire every day! THANK YOU FOREVER AND ALWAYS

I am one of Dr. Smoot's breast augmentation patients & very proud of it! From the start I did a lot of research, I read endless reviews about surgeons in the San Diego area & happened to be most interested in Dr. Smoot at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre. Once I met him & his nurse Carmen at my consultation, I knew right away I wanted him to perform my surgery. I immediately felt comfortable once I met Dr. Smoot & his nurse Carmen, they are both down to earth. Dr. Smoot listened to my concerns & did an outstanding job at helping me reach my goal look. Dr. Smoot has been performing breast augmentations for many years & does amazing work to enhance your natural look & get you to your goal....he will make you look great! All the staff at LJCSC made me feel very comfortable & my experience was very enjoyable! The patient care coordinator, Jessica, was there at all times to answer any question I had via email or phone & I am very thankful for that as I had a lot of questions throughout the process. From my consultation to post-surgery, I received spectacular care. The staff at LJCSC go above & beyond to make each patient feel comfortable & important. My new look is amazing....I am forever grateful, Dr. Smoot! I definitely recommend Dr. Smoot, you will be more than happy with your decision!

Walking into LJCSC I was very nervous. I was looking for a rhinoplasty and I heard Dr Ervin Wheeler was the best. Thankfully, I can vouch for that now, as well. I chose Dr Wheeler over the other surgeons I had consults with (in different locations) and he and his team made me feel the most comfortable. From A to Z they constantly checked up on me and made sure everything went smoothly. Also, the main reason for my satisfaction, is that there is no one who will give such natural, amazing results like Dr Wheeler. His work is like no other. If you're looking for a surgeon and someone who listens to what you want and makes sure it comes out flawlessly, Dr Wheeler is definitely your choice.

After checking out several different doctors I came across Dr. Michael Roark by recommendation from one his past patients and it was best decision I could've made. Dr. Roark and his nurse, Sarah Celeste went above and beyond to take good care of me as their patient. I was extremely nervous about getting a breast augmentation done, but the staff at LJCSC was really helpful and warm. Dr. Roark is nothing short of amazing. He took the time to get to know me and listened to what I wanted and then from there gave me his best recommendation for my body type. I ended up following his recommendation for my procedure and now, 3 months post-op, I couldn't be happier with the results. If you're reading reviews, looking for a doctor, I highly recommend going to LJCSC and talking to Dr. Roark and Sarah. I promise you won't be disappointed. 5 stars! Excellent job guys!

Dr. Smoot was extremely professional and all the women in the office (Carmen and Jessica to name only two!) were terrific. After a very tragic situation for me, I was able to obtain a sense of normalcy after breast augmentation. I really liked the fact that my wishes for "natural" and "conservative" were respected. I am so happy with the results. They are so good at what they do- don't go anywhere else!!

When I had first looked into an Augmentation about 10years ago I did tons of research and asked everyone I had known to mention they had a surgery where I should go , how their experience was and about 4,876.980 questions. I found that a lot of the time they said they went to orange county, LA , Bev hills and so on. They often also said they would have done things different or went somewhere else and I knew I never wanted to go to the same places they did. I went to a few consultations at other practices and never felt like I was taken seriously. YEARS later after having a child and being a little older and wiser so to speak, I started looking into it again. I had now started to do research for a local doctor, someone I could talk to regularly and if I had any questions would answer them. I now heard of a doctor that I had about 6 friends go to and they ALL had amazing things to say about him and were happy with their results. That doctor is Dr. Johan E. Brahme. So I did what anyone would do, went to his website, checked his profile and I again did tons of research on this doctor and checked his credentials to make sure I wanted to take the plunge and schedule my surgery. After all , on paper he was the perfect doctor so my hopes were high and I was anxious. I didn't want to waste his time or mine with phone questions so I made my consultation appointment to see if he was indeed the right person for the task. I was SO nervous and excited I was almost trying to talk my self down so I didn't miss a question. I can honestly say from the Second I walked in to his practice , I had a sense of calm and being " In the right place" . The front office staff was extremely friendly, warm and didn't give off that "Oh another person is here " feeling Like I had experienced at other practices. They checked me in, I sat for about 3minutes (if that) in the waiting area and a nurse came to greet me and take my husband and I back into the office. Her name was Christina and she was an absolute doll! She went through some questions with us and shortly Dr. Brahme came in. He literally made me feel like I was his only patient waiting to see him and took the time to answer any and every question I had. I had Breastfed for 18months and was no longer happy with the look of my breasts. I wasn't comfortable with the shape and wanted to restore my confidence. With every minute that passed and every question he answered I felt like I could regain what I once lost. I KNEW by mid consultation he was my doctor! At the end when he asked "If I had anymore questions" my reply with the biggest grin in the world was "Can we do it Friday? (it was a Wednesday December 11th 2013) and Do you take cash or a Debit Card? He smiled and again took the time to go over everything with me to make sure I was making the right choice. I scheduled my procedure for December 18th 2013 and let me tell you I was SO EXCITED! The day of again the staff was amazing, comforting and made me feel like I was in the best hands possible. I went under after a brief explanation and the last thing I saw was Christina and Dr. Brahme's smiling faces. I woke up to the same and I was in and out with no complications. With every visit after I can honestly say that Dr Brahme and his staff are THE BEST in the Biz and live up to their award winning praise. They make you feel like part of the family. Dr. Brahme is a true artist and I am truly happy I waited so long to have my surgery. I have the BEST doctor a patient under going a surgery such as the one I did could ever hope for and Christina, Dr Brahme and staff are truly AMAZING! Sorry for the long review but I wanted everyone to know how awesome they made me feel and how great they are at LJCSC! My husband actually made a shirt that says " Dr Brahme for President " because he too was happy with the Results of my new improved outlook on myself. I HIGHLY Recommend Dr. Brahme and If I ever choose to have any other procedure, his office will be the place I go!
