Very good MD, I wanted 650cc Dr.G didnt seem to thrilled to do tht amout..he stated they might not sit up right..which I can respect him for tht concern. Dr. G is a very laid back and BLUNT doctor. Check in was quick and painless front desk rep was so nice. But I would recommend Dr.Gallego.. I ened up with 650cc's just wht I wanted!!!

A Wonderful Experience - Sioux City, IA

Dr. Gallego took everything I said into consideration when we discussed my rhinoplasty and then told me, truthfully, what he thought. I appreciate this since he obviously has more experience than me. He even spent some extra time during surgery to make sure that everything looked good. With this being my first ever surgery, I was definitely scared but he and his staff made me feel comfortable and always let me know what to expect. They even called a few days later to make sure that everything was going well.

47 Years Young, Breast Reduction-(shoulder Neck Pain Sagging Breasts) - Yuba City, CA

From the first consultation to my 6 week check-up all I can say about Dr. Gallego and his staff is that they are fantastic. He is fairly new to my area and I was referred to him by my dermologist. Everything he said would happen from the pre-op to the surgery to the recovery process proceeded just as he said it would. My results are amazing, from the pain going away, to the looks of my breasts. I was back to work within a week of surgery and full recovery in six weeks. He took his time with me at each of my appointments, answering all of my questions and explaining to me the procedure. His staff his professional and extremely kind and never made me feel uncomfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Kelly Gallego for breast reduction surgery.

Dr gallego is such a perfectionist and you can tell he's really proud of the work he does. He's funny and down to earth, and makes you feel comfortable from the start. His staff was there for me through all my pre surgery anxiety. I'm very thankful to not only have my pre baby body back but to look even better than I looked before! Dr gallego is truly an artist of his craft! Would reccomend everyone go to him.

Anchored After 3 C-section and a Weight Struggle. Sioux City, IA

Dr. Kelly Gallego is a gift! He is a brilliant surgeon and a compassionate and dedicated person. I felt like family...I felt like I truly mattered. I wasn't a number. He spent time with me and my husband and was honest about the work I did and would continue to do and the work that he could to help complete my process. It was the best decision and choice I could have ever made. He was thorough and really spent time answering all of our questions. He was truly amazing! A truly dedicated and gifted surgeon with a lot of heart! I can't believe how much better I am now thanks to my work and work with him! He made all the difference and finished what I truly could not have done on my own. Dr. Gallego is outstanding! I am thankful for him everyday. I am the person I wanted to be... I feel complete and I am a better person, wife, mother, sister, friend, boss, employee because of it! Thank you Dr. G... The GIFT!

Dr. Gallego listened to my concerns, then he offered his opinion. He made me feel that it was OK to have this done and I wouldn't look fake. He answered all my questions with genuine concern. He explained things thoroughly. It was a good experience and I would go to him again for the same thing. I also would recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon.

Is Your Plastic Surgeon Board Certified?
