5 out of 5 stars Fat Transfer

Wonderful experience from start to finish

I saw 3 doctors before deciding to proceed with Dr. Soltero. From the moment I walked in the office I had such a wonderful feeling. Mariana who works as the administrative patient coordinator greeted me with a smile each time and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Soltero was always willing to listen to my concerns and answer any questions. I had quite a bit of work done so was quite nervous but...

Amazing Dr **great experience

Amazing! I was terrified and he made me feel like everything was going to turn out great, and it did! I literally told him to do what he thinks would look best. I totally trust him. Natural results, friendly staff, great experience. I got my breast and nose done. Definitely recommend!

Best Plastic Surgeon - La Jolla, CA

Dr. Soltero and his entire staff are the best! I was a 32A (I am also 5'2 & 120 lbs) prior and was very lop-sided due to breast feeding. I had 525cc silicone ultra high profile implants as well as a lift and inverted nipple correction. Currently, I am 5 months post op and wearing a 32DDD bra (Victoria Secret, because brand sizing differs). I couldn't be more pleased with my results &...

I am so glad I did it

I had been thinking about doing a mini lift or a face lift for few years. I was scared to do it and then look as if I had OBVIOUSLY had work done. It was not an easy decision, but Dr. Soltero and his staff gave me the confidence to do it. They counseled me well so that I would not make mistakes in the selection of what needed to be done to accomplish my goals. I am very glad I did it. the...

Amazing Experience and oustanding results!

I'm not only going to post a very positive review but also would like to express my sincere and endless gratitude to Dr Soltero and his staff for a highly efficient procedure and satisfying outcome as well. I went to see Dr Soltero for advice about my hair loss; he carefully explained and recommended the NeoGraft procedure for optimal results and minimal invasion. His staff was not only...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck


Very professional Plastic Surgeon. Skilled, approachable, someone you can talk to. Had my Tummy Tuck over ten years ago and it looks amazing. My tummy is flat, my abdominal muscles were tightened and I still have a straight flat stomach. Highly recommend him for Tummy Tuck or any other surgery! Loved the staff too! Ines is super nice!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

In and out!

My experience was great. I flew to San Diego for liposuction on my thighs and was extremely pleased with the procedure, the level of attention and how I look now. Dr Soltero is a perfectionist, and it shows in how he took care of my surgery. I recovered very fast.
