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.

Scar Revision

[Consultation Review] Dr. Salazar let me know exactly how the procedure would go. He gave me enough hope that honestly after I booked the appointment I cried a little because I have genuine faith he will make scar look much better that it does now!

Breast Augmentation

The Doctor and his team did a great job on my breast. I'm extremely happy with the shape and size.

Breast Augmentation

Everyone was incredibly friendly and made me feel so comfortable being there! They answered all my questions and were very professional.

Breast Lift

Professionalism of the staff.


[Consultation Review] Very professional and answered all my questions in great details.

Breast Implant Revision

I liked Riana on the phone. She answered a lot of questions & was funny. The office is clean, comfortable to wait in & the receptionist was helpful. I didn't have to wait long at all before I was taken to an exam room. Dr. Salazar's nurse was kind & made me feel comfortable. She felt like a family member. Dr.Salazar was very professional & warm. He listened to my thoughts, he explained what he would have to do & why. We worked together to come up with the right size & shape.

Breast Augmentation

The experience was great. Everyone was really patient with me and treated me very well. I'm very happy with the end results. :) Thank you!! Dr. Salazar

Breast Lift

The staff and doctor are very pleasant and professional.

Breast Implant Removal

From my initial contact with Karla to my procedure with Dr. Salazar and Carmen and everyone in between, I couldn't be more pleased with my experience. Everyone made me feel comfortable, answered all of my questions and I would recommend the team to anyone who asks!

Breast Augmentation

From beginning to end, the whole staff was incredible. Doctor Salazar worked with me to find the right size that fit me, and it turned out perfect. I'm so incredibly happy with my results and am so thankful I chose Doctor Salazar to do it.

Tummy Tuck

My experience with Dr. Salazar and his team far exceeded my expectations. When I first looked into the procedure, I was hesitant and nervous. Throughout the entire process, Dr. Salazar made me feel comfortable and confident. He is an extremely talented surgeon and I witness his precision every day when I look in the mirror. I am extremely happy with the results!

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Salazar-Reyes and Carmen were both very welcoming, professional and a pleasure to speak with.

Eyelid Surgery

Consult was great. Bedside manner is great. Seamless so far - - great admin support. I just need to see evidence of his work. Struggling to get that. Seems like there should be a catalogue to see lots of examples of the surgery I want to have to see results.

Face Lift

[Consultation Review] I loved Dr. Salazar's personality, time spent with me, style!

Eyelid Surgery

Bilingual staff. Dr does not persue to cut me up. He gave me alternatives.


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.
