I am soooo grateful to Dr. Salazar-Reyes for seeing me and getting me in quickly to remove implants that had been in many years and had started leaking. Dr. Salazar & Carmen his assistant took away my worry and let me know that they were going to take care of me. The whole office was so efficient my procedure was done within the week.

Cyst Removal

I saw Dr. Salazar-Reyes as a follow up to a breast augmentation procedure I had undergone @ LJCSC. I had developed a small cyst in the areola area and reached out to LJCSC.


[Consultation Review] Doctor took time to answer my questions and I need not feel like he rushed me. I was also able to schedule a follow up to meet with the doctor.

Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Salazar is not only a highly skilled surgeon, he is very kind and patient and listens to your concerns.

Breast Augmentation

[Consultation Review] I have had a few consultations about a breast augmentation, and all of the doctors told me how I have a great starting structure and how they could make me look exactly like the picture I showed them. Something always kept me from commuting though, just a gut feeling I suppose. Dr. Salazar was the first one to actually take my measurements and explain my anatomy to me. He gave me realistic expectations and honest information, even though it wasn't what I wanted to hear. I called my fiancé after the appointment crying, I was sad and frustrated. He told me we would keep looking for another doctor, but I already knew that Dr. Salazar was the doctor that needed to do my surgery because he cared more about me as a person and being honest with me and walking me through what can do then he did about selling me a surgery and that was what was missing in every other consultation. I felt safe and I didn't feel like just another face walking into the office. My surgery is in one week and I will write another review but so far everything has exceeded my expectations. The nurse was kind and patient, the facilities are beautiful, I feel calm and peaceful walking into this surgery. If you are looking for a doctor who will make you feel genuinely cared for then go see Dr. Salazar! He won't sell you on something that isn't realistic or that will leave you 'botched' in the long run!

Hair Transplant

[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. Thank you so much Meredith and Dr. Salazar for such an amazing experience!
