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.

[Consultation Review] My experience at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Center was absolutely amazing. My patient coordinator, Meredith, was incredible. So friendly and knowledgeable and made me feel so comfortable. From the very start, Dr. Salazar made me feel extremely comfortable with his vast knowledge on hair transplant surgery. I left the consultation so excited and immediately booked surgery. I had my surgery today and it went so well. It was completely painless, the entire staff was so friendly and I am ecstatic about the results. I would highly recommend La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery to anyone.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Salazar is the best!!! He was very thorough and gave exceptional patient care before, during, and after the procedure. His staff is very professional and well trained to answer any questions you may have. Carmen; his nurse, she is the best!!! Everyone has been careful to explain every step of the process and particularly kind following the procedure. The job itself looks great!! He guided me in the right direction and made a recommendation but allowed me to pick. Recovery was also relatively painless and is a testament to the quality of work performed. Made me feel very comfortable, as I was extremely nervous. Highly recommend!


[Consultation Review] Dr. Salazar and his team made me feel comfortable and safe.


After consultation but before surgery, I had some questions about Dr. Salazar's planned operation method based on a resource I found online. He was very gracious with my inquiry and set up a Zoom call to personally explain to me the science behind his approach. Everything went seamlessly throughout my entire process and now 2.5 months post-op, I am SO pleased with my results.
