Glynn Bolitho, MD Reviews (76)

Breast Lift

Dr. Bolitho listened to what I wanted and I am very happy with the results. His staff is always prompt and happy to answer questions. I can wear a bra and baiting suit!

Neck Lift

Dr.B's office is the dream team. Dr. B's talent coupled with an experienced and friendly staff is worthy of five stars. Board Certified in 4 countries with a kind and sensitive demeanor, makes for an exceptional experience. Make sure to have Elizabeth take care of your botox/injectables. She's is great too! The best thing about this experience was the RESULTS. I have a neck again!

Injectable Fillers

I found the staff and doctor B so professional as always! I had no bruising this time and was very happy.

Face Lift

Wonderful and empathic surgeon, wonderful staff, awesome results! I look younger but very naturally so! I feel more confident and better about myself - I am happy with myself when I look in the mirror! I get MANY compliments on how I look!

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Bolithio and Isabelle are awesome. Always very positive, warm, and knowledgeable about what will work, and whats a waste of money to try and fix

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Bolitho made me feel extremely comfortable and listened to me without trying to sway my expectations or upscale me. Everyone in Dr. Bolitho’s office are friendly, highly educated, communicative, informative and made me comfortable to be honest about any thoughts or concerns I had. Having breast augmentation has made me feel feminine. I was self conscious and didn’t feel feminine prior to my surgery. I am now much more confident and feel sexy & feminine now!!!

Breast Implant Revision

Everyone in the office was highly skilled at their jobs. They all made me feel very secure. I feel like I took care of myself, and I have a better self-image.

Eyelid Surgery

It was all very good - obviously a very professional office.DB. Dr. Bolitho is extremely competent, along with the staff. The practice of using a medical doctor for the anesthesia is also very wise. Many people do not want to have a nurse perform that function.Many thanks - [name]

Face Lift

The Surgeon is very passionate about his work and it shows by the excellent results. The entire staff are competent and caring. I was always able to call if I had any questions during post-op care. I am extremely pleased with the fat grafting to my face. It really enhanced the facelift and has given me a more healthy look as my face was extremely thin and drawn after dealing with a lot of stress for a few years.

Breast Augmentation

I found the absolute best doctor in SanDiego for this type of procedure. I trust him! I would go back to him again for any other cosmetic surgery that I choose to do in the future. I also will always recommend my friends to him specifically . I loved his staff and his team of people that he has chosen to surround himself with I felt cared for and felt peaceful through each part of the process


The great improve the in my sight. The Dr and staff kept me well informed, and everybody in the practice is very helpful and pleasantI have great confidence in all of youLove. [name]

Breast Reconstruction

I loved all the staff. Dr B is VERY funny and a refreshing change from the first surgeon who was originally scheduled to perform my reconstruction. His name is [name], MD. the whole experience was abominable. Dr B's office is beautiful and conducive to putting one at ease. It is apparent that a lot of time, thoughtfulness and excellent education have produced such a pleasant and reassuring environment. I was put at ease by all the staff, especially Dr B. who is very funny. we had met once a long time ago in a social setting and started talking about veterinary school which he had attended with one of my dogs' vets before he became an MD. I remembered his name when I needed reconstruction. it was a great ice breaker to remind him of our prior meeting. He was willing to take his time and do things right. I needed to postpone surgery because of an infection and he knew that waiting was the appropriate protocol.

Tummy Tuck

They always take great care of me and are complete professionals from the beginning till the end including post procedure check ups. I would highly recommend Dr. Bolitho to friends and family! I am less self conscious of the area.

Face Lift

Totally a coordinated team (family like) environment. The interaction between all the staff with me as a patient was by far the best experience I have ever encountered in a cosmetic/ surgery office. Very caring and personal. Has made me a lot happier looking in the mirror. Doesn't take as long to prepare for the day with less sagging and wrinkles to try and conceal!

Breast Reduction

Treated as if you were family. Very personalized experience.

Neck Lift

I received complete professional care by all staff. Dr. B is highly skilled and has a very comforting style. I got the treatment I wanted at a rate I could afford. I am so happy I found your office. You are all A+.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Bolitho came highly recommended from a friend. My experience has been nothing but phenomenal. From the minute I made a pre op appointment on the phone until my most recent follow up, every experience has made me feel comfortable and confident in the care I've received. I had some concerns with swelling after the surgery, and Dr Bolitho was available immediately to assess and re assure me. He is kind, friendly, and has a keen eye for asthetics. What a great team he has!!

Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Bolitho and his entire team have been nothing short of amazing. Everyone in his office is caring and attentive. I felt like I was in good hands from the moment I met Dr. Bolitho and have not been disappointed. Would recommend him to anyone needing/wanting a top notch Plastic Surgeon. I am halfway through a breast reconstruction due to a triple negative breast cancer. As of now, I've been most positively affected by the treatment of Dr. Bolitho and his team. I think the end result will be beautiful as I've healed well and have had zero complications.

Face Lift

Awesome practice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Awesome results!!!!!!!! More confident with looks. 110% better

Breast Reconstruction

The doctor made me feel comfortable and listened to what I wanted my outcome to be. A very modest/natural looking breast lift for my body type. Did not want anything outrageous. Dr. Bolitho was great. My healing time was remarkable and easy due to the doctors skilled surgery.
