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!!!

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.

A tummytuck, a.k.a. abdominoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure which dramatically improves the appearance of the abdominal region. Patients may develop a protruding, unsightly abdomen for a number of reasons including pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or as a normal process in an otherwise healthy person. The abdominal deformity typically includes an excess of skin,...

The term “board certified” seems to get thrown around quite a bit these days. Patients are constantly encouraged to make certain that their surgeon is “board certified.” In addition, the surgeon must be “board certified” by the appropriate certifying board, not some lesser board. So what is the big deal anyway with board certification? Board certification is a credentialing process where physicians voluntarily complete a list of requirements...
Sooner or later it happens to each one of us. We look at our face in the mirror, and start to see lines that did not used to be there. Obviously, no one is fan of wrinkles. Luckily, for those who are concerned or even discouraged with facial wrinkles, fine lines, and deep folds, there are...
