This was my first visit into Changes. The entire office staff was so sweet. This was my first appointment with Dr. Clark. I was a Botox first timer and he explained everything so well, answering every question and making sure I felt comfortable. It's been a month since my visit and I'm still so impressed with the results. If you are wondering who to go to.... I hands down recommend Dr. Clark! Thanks for an amazing experience! I'll definitely be back!

Had other consultations with surgeons for facelift procedure and none were as comprehensive and engaging as the one I had with Dr. Rossi. I had a list of handwritten questions and he answered all of them, and more that I hadn't even thought of, before I pulled my list out of my purse. All the staff is so engaging and make you feel comfortable the moment you walk in!

I had an amazing experience going to Dr. Clark for Botox and filler. I was really nervous about filler and he made me feel so comfortable. He took time to go over options and didn’t pressure me to do anything. I am so happy with the results! The best part is it didn’t hurt at all and there was absolutely no bruising! I can’t wait to go back!!

Had an Asian blepharoplasty done with Dr Lee and am super happy with the results. He and his staff take their time with you to ensure results are up to your standards. As the wife of an Ophthalmologist that preforms blepharoplasties for medical need patients, I needed to find someone that understood the specifics of Asian skin, fat around the eyes and shape for a natural enhanced look. Dr Lee met all of those needs for me and couldn't be more pleased with the results.

I have been lucky to have worked and learn under Dr.Artz as a pre/postop RN during his residency in New Orleans. From beginning to end, he shows the kindness and compassion with his exceptional bed side manners that stood out to patients and staff. Always listening attentively to their concerns and wants and taking all the time he needs to answer all questions and explain every step. All staff loved working side by side to him. I’ve personally gotten cosmetic Botox and fillers with him for years and will not go to anyone else He is honest and gentle with injection. As life grew, we both found ourselves in sunny San Diego and I couldn’t be more excited to travel to La Jolla to see him for any of my cosmetic needs. Def recommend a consult with him for any needs you may be even interested in, you will not be disappointed!

Dr. Artz made my first filler experience so so easy. He was very focused on what I wanted and gave me beautiful lips as a result!

Dr. Artz has been my plastic surgeon of choice for the past six years, and he is truly gifted with an attention to detail that has always given me the absolute best results. If you’ve been fence sitting about wanting dermal fillers or Botox do yourself a favor, and book an appointment with Dr. Artz. He will have you looking natural, perfectly balanced and truly feeling and becoming your absolute best self.

Truly the highest recommended by me. If you are looking for the best, Dr. Arts is it. I delivered an 11lb baby, which resulted a drastic body change. I was very fortunate to have Dr. Arts for my surgery. AMAZING RESULTS!!!! My experience was beyond great. My level of care was outstanding, over and beyond excellent. Very professional and knowledgeable. His passion for what he does is unmatched!

I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Artz from first year of medical school and watched his journey through plastic surgery graduating top of his class. His bedside manner, attention to detail and passion toward his profession is unmatched. I highly recommend setting up an appointment with Dr. Artz his work is phenomenal.

I would like to thank Katie Page, Camryn McAallister and Nicole who got me in to see Dr. Clark. Dr. Clark and Madeline are AMAZING! Madeline made me feel very comfortable. I was feeling overwhelmed during my appointment and she talked me through it. Dr. Clark was compassionate and explained everything that was going to happen, down to my healing process. I felt very comfortable with him. The whole Changes team that was there the day of my appointment made my experience feel absolutely incredible! I look forward to seeing everyone again at my 3 week follow up appointment

Dr. Clark is an exceptional person, surgeon and injector! I received Botox and lip filler for the first time and am absolutely loving it! As a 35 year old female, I’ve been wanting to try it for a while but always heard mixed reviews and opinions from friends and colleagues. After meeting Dr. Clark, I felt he was trustworthy and genuine, and not trying to “sell me” or over-do it. During my appointment, he spent so much time explaining everything, listening to me, examining and looking at my face, giving honest feedback, and going over all risks and benefits. I was extremely impressed and felt very comfortable. He gave me the very natural enhancement I was looking for and I will definitely go back in the future for any other needs! He also followed up with me the next day to see if I had any bruising/bleeding, side effects, etc. I highly recommend Dr. Clark!

Danielle J.

Very personable and courteous doctor and staff. I felt comfortable asking questions and all were answered. VERY pleased with surgical outcome by Dr. Rossi who had the challenge of completely redoing a botched surgery by another surgeon not affiliated with “Changes”. Highly recommend!

Susan V.S.

I was admitted to the ER with dog bite on the face. I was blessed that Dr. Artz was the plastic surgeon on call. He made a sound medical decision on how best to move forward to give me the best possible result and still preserve the tissue and muscle I had. He did a spectacular job and the result is miraculous. He is obviously a brilliant surgeon, but equal to skill and expertise is his kindness, compassion, and decency. I cannot say enough good things about him.

Dr. Gilbert Lee, Dr. Rossi, Dr. Artz and the most AMAZING Brenda van Loggem are all heaven sent I swear it!!! This astounding team of surgeons is the absolute top tier of excellence in all of San Diego! Dr. Lee gave me all my confidence back 100% in my complete transformation of a Mommy Makeover and was extremely professional, honest, and caring throughout the entire process start to finish. I can’t thank that man enough for making this Mommy of 4 blessings feel and look like “me” again. Dr. Rossi was kind enough (on what I knew was his time off the clock there when he walked past my door in the office) to help my dear friend Brenda (she’s the QUEEN of all things injected) fix a forever issue with my nose. “Thank you Dr. Rossi” and Dr. Artz is a total perfectionist when it comes to his craft… As he completely fixed my bottom lip after I suffered a major injury that tore it up and left me unrecognizable… Never wanting to take a photo again. “Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr. Artz”. These people and the entire staff is the most professional, polite, genuine, caring and TALENTED people in this business and I can’t recommend or thank them all enough! Trust me, if you’re looking for the best… Changes Plastic Surgery and Spa IS IT!

Astonishing results! Dr. Rossi's expertise truly shone through during my implant removal, breast reconstruction, and fat sculpting surgery at Changes Plastic Surgery. My initial 34E implants were disproportionately large for my 115-pound frame, leading to breathing difficulties and persistent health issues. After careful consideration of various doctors, I selected Dr. Rossi, and it was the best decision. My new breasts are not only a perfect fit—cute and perky—but also a source of newfound joy. Since the removal of the implants, most my health issues have disappeared. I can not thank Dr. Rossi and his staff enough.

Gabbie N.

Dr. Artz is amazing!! He gave me a level of confidence that I never knew I could have. Unfortunately, after having two previous breast augmentations and a tummy tuck by another surgeon, I had never received the results I wanted. That all changed the day I met Dr. Artz. He is personable, attentive and I appreciate the fact that he listened to my concerns and was honest about what he needed to do to “fix me”. Seven months post-op, my Tummy tuck revision and new breast implants have never looked better! Dr. Artz is very meticulous with his work. When he sees his canvas, he knows exactly how to make it a masterpiece! He exceeded my expectations and Im forever grateful for the time he took with me to give me the results I’d always hoped for!

Brittany S.

Dr Gilbert Lee is understanding, compassionate, and most importantly an artist who will take the time to do it right. He did my ex-wife’s rhinoplasty, my fillers and a Blepharoplasty revision from a botched job by Dr Taban in Beverly Hills who spent 15 mins and left a deep indentation and me scared of correcting it for many years. Dr Lee was able to correct a lot of it.

Gary T.

What an amazing human that truly cares…Such a beautiful thing when a person realizes their purpose in life and put that purpose into action to make a positive difference for others. May God continue to bless you Michael Rossi, with all you do , in your practice and in your life. Thank you

Janet S.

Dr. Rossi and Alex were very helpful and willing to talk through all of my questions and I felt good about. surgery two weeks out.
