La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre (LJCSC) is highly-respected practice in San Diego, California. Our education and informed consent materials have been disseminated and translated into five languages, while our patient care and communication systems are used by more than 1200 plastic surgeons across the globe. But twenty years ago, a center for cosmetic surgery was a rather unusual idea. Most people thought cosmetic surgery was for the “rich and famous.” It was far from mainstream—to say the least. During this time our founder, Dr. Olesen, was actually Head of the Division of Plastic Surgery at Scripps Clinic in La Jolla, CA. It was in this traditional multi-specialty setting that Dr. Olesen realized his cosmetic surgery patients had very different needs than the typical medical patient. Unlike medical patients who were driven by disease, deformity or trauma, his cosmetic patients were driven by emotional concerns as well as physical complaints. Specifically, Dr. Olesen wanted things for his patients that were not possible in a large multi-specialty setting. So he established LJCSC in 1988 … and the rest, as they say, is history.
La Jolla Cosmetic Centre is one of the premier cosmetic surgery practices in the country, featuring a State of the Art facility at 9850 Genesee Avenue
Suite 130 and experienced, board certified plastic surgeons.
