About Hector Salazar-Reyes:

Double board certified plastic surgeon Hector Salazar-Reyes MD, FACS is passionate about cosmetic surgery—and he loves nothing more than seeing a patient’s confidence transform after a procedure. Having dedicated 17 years of his life to achieve the best medical training, Dr. Salazar’s philosophy is centered around providing beautiful results safely and ensuring each and every patient feels well cared for from their first appointment to their last.

In addition to his devotion to staying up-to-date on the latest plastic surgery techniques, Dr. Salazar loves learning about all the new cosmetic technology and devices—though he remains critical of new products until he is sure he has found the safest, most effective options to offer patients.

Dr. Salazar had a passion for plastic surgery from very early on—and he knew as soon as he made the decision to attend medical school that it was the field for him. He earned his medical degree from the University of Baja California where he graduated Summa Cum Laude before completing a general surgery internship at the University of Illinois Metropolitan Group of Hospitals program.

Dr. Salazar finished his full residency in general surgery at the world-renowned Houston Method Hospital. He completed his plastic surgery residency training at the same institution and was then board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

During his residency training in both specialties, Dr. Salazar was Chief Resident. As a result of his multiple research projects in the field of plastic surgery, he has contributed to numerous peer-reviewed publications and has participated in national and international meetings to present his findings.

In addition to being an American Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Salazar is an active member of the American College of Surgeons, American Society of Plastic Surgeons, American Board of Plastic Surgery Maintenance of Certification Program, California Society of Plastic Surgeons, San Diego Plastic Surgery Society and the American Medical Association.

When he’s not busy helping LJCSC patients look and feel wonderful, Dr. Salazar enjoys spending time with his wife and son enjoying the city or analyzing the latest techniques in plastic surgery.

Hector Salazar-Reyes, MD, FACS Reviews (35)

Hair Transplant

Dr. Salazar and his staff at LJCSC were very personable and helpful with answering all my questions and explaining the process from start to finish. They made sure that they explained how to better care for my new hair to maximize the best results. This was very reassuring I would definitely recommend anyone to this practice who is looking for the best .

Hair Transplant

Information given was accurate and knowledgeable. The consultation was candid and easy to understand by a layman. Comfortable and easy going.

Mommy Makeover

Every staff member I interacted with was friendly yet professional. The materials provided to review both before my initial appointment and after the surgery had been scheduled were extremely helpful.

Breast Lift

La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center sets the standard for professionalism. In every aspect. This is my opinion, having surgery done before other places. Right when you walk in the waiting room alone is so clean and open and plenty of room so you're not packed in there like sardines and beautiful you don't get a feeling in your stomach.. like I need to get out of here. Everyone is dressed for the job that they are doing. That may sound weird to notice this. But if you have had consultations and surgeries before...then you've seen it all.. you had those gut feelings about a doctor when he comes in unshaven to give you a consultation--those types of things matter. Because if an office doesn't care about the way the waiting room looks or the way the workers look or carry themselves you need to get out of there. Completely opposite here everything is wonderful five stars and Beyond. Dr.Salazar was professional as well as comforting. Very balanced for sure. Everything was explained in a way that I could understand this tricky surgery that I'm about to undergo. I have a wonderful piece of mind going into this and that's what you need. My husband and I feel very good about choosing this place for my procedure. And I know that I am in good hands I can feel it. I would recommend this place to anyone who is considering surgery.. and the fact is from the moment I called for the consultation appointment even though I had another consultation somewhere else I did know that in the end we were going to pick this place. I have already scheduled my procedure and I'm very very excited.
