5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

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

I rode the weight gain, weight loss roller coaster for all my youth. In my early 20's I had 2 children and the toll everything took on my body left me with terrible self esteem and a bad body image. I saved for nearly 6 years and finally had my surgery a year and and a half ago. My surgery was the best possible. I had a tummy tuck and lift with small implant. I healed remarkably and am...

Total Worth It! - San Diego, CA

Dr. Reagan did an outstanding job on the facelift. My friends, family, and colleagues all commented that not only did I look fantastic, but I looked like ME...just younger! The perfect compliment you want to hear after a big surgery like that. Dr. Reagan and his staff continued to care for me in the most professional and caring way after the procedure as well.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck/Lipo La Jolla, CA

Had a tummy tuck done by Dr. Brian Reagan. I was nervous about this procedure and after careful research of three other surgeons I decided to go with Dr. Reagan. He was not chosen due to pricing (as his quote was more then the others) but based on a great bedside manner and his confidence in his work. I had my procedure done in April 16, 2013 and it was by far the most painful thing I had ever...

5 out of 5 stars IPL

IPLs - Carlsbad, CA

I have had several IPLs with Dr Reagan on my face and these have been very successful. I am pleased with the results. The most recent IPL was for my neck and chest and was very intense. I am hoping that the outcome will be as good as the facial IPLs. The office staff always treats me like a queen! Each visit has been unique and I have made a great deal of progress in recovering from...

Dr Reagan does an incredible job with my Botox injections and IPL treatments. He really understands the artistry of plastic surgery and is not the type of doctor to suggest unnecessary procedures. The personal service and interest of this...

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...
