5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

Glad I Waited...found the Perfect Doctor - Carlsbad, CA

Amazing experience all around. Dr. Reagan is top notch and treated me with the best care possible. He even came in on Mothers Day to see me.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Total Worth It! - San Diego, CA

I had interviewed 3 other surgeons before meeting Dr. Reagan. I knew after minutes of meeting him, that I wanted him to do my facelift. He was very patient and asked me questions about what I wasn't happy about with my face. He was a good listener and made me feel very comfortable. I didn't feel any pressure from him to make a decision at the consultation visit. He simply gave me all the information I needed, and I left knowing I'd found the right doctor.

Middle Aged Mom Trying to Keep It Real! La Jolla, CA

Dr. Reagan has been there for me for over 10 years now. I never wanted to be a "time-fighter" & look artificial. Dr. Reagan has supported my self-esteem with his tremendous skill, kindness, follow-thru & integrity. Today, at 54... no one would guess that I have ever had a single procedure. I look forward to continuing my healthy lifestyle and appropriate appearance as I enjoy life. I recommend him as THE BEST PLASTIC SURGEON in San Diego. P.S. Admittedly, it's fun to appear 15 or more years younger than I am!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck/Lipo La Jolla, CA

Dr. Reagan was awesome. Super personable, approachable and friendly.

Anti Aging IPL Treatment Series - Carlsbad, CA

Dr. Reagan did the procedure and Megan assisted, Melissa prepped me and relaxed a very anxious patient ( me,), nervous going in for the procedure and laughing when I left his office. I highly recommend True Beauty, it was the best experience.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction


September 24, 2014 I was diagnosed with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma. I am 37 years old- This is news no woman ever wants to receive no matter what age she is. When you are diagnosed you are assigned a team consisting of an oncology surgeon, oncologist and radiation oncologist. I did my diligence running around town getting 2nd and third opinions as well as going to meet with Dr. Reagan. He made...

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Brian Reagan - Excellent - Carlsbad, CA

I am completely happy with my refreshed looking eyes and repaired chin area. Dr. Reagan and his staff are caring professionals who listened to my concerns and reassured me each step of the way. I have already recommended Dr. Reagan to friends and family who are considering "having something done!" The entire experience was exceptional!
