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.

Mini Tummy Tuck

The doctor listened to my concerns. Gave honest feedback and was very professional.


Dr. Salazar is very personable, kind and provides honest helpful advice to guide your decisions. Both him and Carmen are wonderful listeners, they understand your needs and are very flexible. I felt safe and comfortable through the consultation.

Breast Augmentation

Everyone was friendly and made me feel less nervous. The surgery itself was really not painful to me but I'm sure everyone is different. I'm very happy with the results! [Single best thing is...] Not having a lot of pain! That's what I was most nervous about.

Ear Surgery / Otoplasty

Dr. Salazar and Carmen are professional, friendly and gentle. They both made sure my daughter was comfortable, and that the outcome of the surgery was successful. I have known about LJCSC's high level of service and care for many years. They did not disappoint. [Single best thing is...] We had searched a number of years to find someone to remove a large keloid on my daughter's ear. After a few unsuccessful methods, Dr. Salazar removed the keloid and followed the extraction with a few post-surgical injections. My daughter's ear looks great and she feels confident when her hair is pulled back in a bun or ponytail.

Breast Augmentation

Amazing results! Dr. Salazar is personable, understanding, doesn’t rush through, and talented!! [Single best thing is...] Scars are so thin!!


The doctor was very specific / tentative and gave thorough instructions for post care. He was realistic and told me the truth of what to expect. My body is looking great so far!


He was very attentive to how I wanted my procedure to be done as well as suggesting new innovated ideas to make my new change done right. He has passion and I sensed that.

Breast Implant Removal

excellent pre-op; thorough explanation of what to expect; pre, during and post porcedure.Great surgery team. Post surgery recovery room experience was wonderful.I woke up so warm and relaxed. I followed all my Dr.'s advice on what to do and Not Do post surgery. It seemed hard to give up exercising and walking; but after 2 weeks of no lifting or walking: I started short level walks first; then a 2 weeks later taking dog for walks; then a 3 weeks later started up my exercise very carefully and slowly and began full exercise and hill/mountain hikes after 13 weeks; coming back on line and feel so great and no complications.

Dr. Salazar and the nurses (Carmen) listened to exactly what I wanted and made everything so comfortable and easy. I never felt overwhelmed or pressured into getting more than what I wanted. I love the results and couldn’t be happier. Very comfortable and easy. They were very informative and made me feel at home. Also they seemed to really care about me and what I wanted/how I was feeling.


Dr. Salazar-Reyes was very informative and genuinely cared about why I was in for the consultation. He spent far above the amount of time I expected explaining and going over options. I really look forward to my surgery date.
