Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Brahme says...

I was born into a family of physicians and spent all my young life around doctors and hospitals. I was born and raised in Malmo, Sweden. My father often took me to work with him when I was a small boy. I loved the way that good doctors were able to comfort and help the patients. When it came time for me to choose a career, there was no doubt in my mind that medicine was my path. I always loved science, art, and people… What better way to spend my life than practicing medicine. And plastic surgery in particular.

My family immigrated to the United States when I was in high school. We settled in San Diego, where my father was a professor at the UCSD medical school. Later, I went to UCSD myself both as a medical student and in plastic surgery. While I was training in plastic surgery, I became involved in a program called Interface, which focuses on providing cleft lip and palate surgery to poor children in Mexico. We travel to small clinics all over Mexico and perform life-changing operations. To this day, it has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. To light up a child's face with a new smile is a gift I am glad that I am able to give.

After completing UCSD, I decided to stay in San Diego and open my practice. I remained on the faculty at UCSD, advising and teaching residents. After a few years in solo practice, I was invited to join the prestigious La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre. I am happy to be part of the practice which was voted the best cosmetic surgery practice in San Diego by Union Tribune Readers 6 times from 2008 to 2014, and I am now the Medical Director. I have served as President of the San Diego Plastic Surgery Society and continue to be involved in the international outreach program Interface.

On the personal side, I have been married for 25 years to an exceptional woman: a physician and the mother of our two children, Lucas, 20, and Alexandra, 19. I play music with my kids and my father, and I am on the Board of Directors of the La Jolla Music Society. My passions are music, traveling, my family, and plastic surgery. I welcome you to the La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre and look forward to meeting you and discussing your desires and goals.
