Hector Salazar-Reyes, MD, FACS Reviews (109)


First, I'll say Doctor Salazar and RN Carmen were so nice and supportive through the entire process. Carmen checked on me at the appropriate times and was so the support I needed. I'm stubborn about follow up appointments and I did go back because I want better continuity of care with the doctor. And I got some free Botox...

Tummy Tuck

Dr. Salazar-Reyes is an exceptional plastic surgeon, he took the time to explain the differences between the options that were available to me, he explained in great detail what the process would look like from beginning to end, and he made sure to promptly answer any questions I had before and after surgery. Dr. Salazar-Reyes and his nurse Carmen have a good working relationship with one another and they are both always very kind, caring, and professional. I would also like to say that Dr. Salazar-Reyes has a great and very efficient surgical team who explained the process and answered any questions I had. I definitely received great care from everyone.

Power-Assisted Liposuction

Definitely gave me the male sculpture I was looking for on the upper half and took away the love handles and back and stomach fat

Breast Implant Removal

From my first experience with the staff and doctor, I felt at ease and cared about. Each team member was interested, caring and highly professional. My procedure went perfectly and I am grateful for the great results. Thanks to all.

Neck Lift

Both my parents had extra skin below their chins that I inherited. It's bothered me for about 15 years and finally wanted to get it fixed. After getting two other bids I decided on La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre. Dr. Salazar and staff made me feel comfortable about the surgery and the COVID-19 procedures made me feel safe. The surgery went well and recovery was pretty quick as I had little pain and was able to get back on my feet the next day. Follow-up care has been fantastic. One reason I chose LJCSC was their commitment to giving back to the community that my wife has followed for years. My healing scar is minimally noticeable and I'm fully satisficed. Best of all my friends think I look great and much younger. Thank you Dr. Salazar and LJCSC.

Breast Implant Removal

I love that I look like I did 11 years ago.

Breast Augmentation

My experience at the La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center was truly amazing. Just recently having breast Augmentation, Dr. Salazar and his entire team provided me with service that is unbeatable! They are kind, skilled, professional yet very personal. Dr. Salazar is the best. I literally had NO bruising. Just amazed! “Thank You” to the whole team. The best thing about this surgical procedure is that Dr. Salazar (and Carmen) helped me figure out what “I“ wanted and then the result (outcome) was exactly as I hoped for. Wouldn’t change a thing!

Breast Augmentation

Everyone in the office is so warm and welcoming, and always makes sure you feel safe and at ease! Dr. Salazar and Carmen answered all of my questions and explained everything that was going to happen and were always available to answer questions.

Breast Implant Revision

[Consultation Review] Dr. Salazar is very personable, enjoyed his sense of humor. He is very thorough, honest and a good listener. I am confident with him as my surgeon, especially since I was so happy with Dr. Roark.

I was very impressed with COVID measures and felt safe throughout the process. I am also very happy with the results so far.

Tummy Tuck

[Consultation Review] I rated my experience as highly satisfied because I felt that Dr. Salazar took the time to really listen to what it was that I wanted to do. He took his time to explain the procedures I was inquiring about in depth. He also asked what my expectations were and what could and could not be accomplished with liposuction, high def liposuction and a tummy tuck with liposuction, which helped me to decide which would be the better option based on my body and expectations.

Breast Reconstruction

First, working with the team at this center was wonderful. They were all super friendly and understanding of my concern. Before I even saw the doctor, all my questions were answered and I was contacted and scheduled very quickly. Meeting with Dr. Salazar and Carmen was also a great experience. Dr. Salazar took the time to talk to me and answer my questions. I did not feel rushed or as if I was being sold on anything. He was considerate of my feelings and I felt listened to. My results are better than I could have imagined!

[Consultation Review] Dr. Salazar's bedside manner is one which is rare. Having worked in health care for over a decade, I was pleasantly surprised that he took the time with me to answer all of my questions and put my mind at ease. We came up with a plan, I didn't feel pushed into doing more than I wanted to. I am really looking forward to my upcoming surgery with Dr. Salazar! His nurse was very pleasant and it is very clear that their working relationship is strong. I am looking forward to being their patient. Thank you!

Breast Implant Removal

I had old, calcified implants removed and replaced with new silicone implants. The level of knowledge, concern, professionalism and surgical skill exemplified by Dr. Salazar-Reyes and his team was astounding. I look and feel great! [Single best thing is...] I think the best part of the surgery was the comfort of knowing I had the best surgeon for my particular situation and seeing the results the next day.

Mini Tummy Tuck
