5 out of 5 stars Facelift

My Facelift Looks Completely Natural

4 weeks ago I had a facelift by Dr. D. I am thrilled with the result. I was anxious prior to the surgery and was very concerned that my co-workers would be able to notice the difference. Going back to work 2 weeks after the surgery I was told how "rested and happy" I looked. The result is beautiful and just what I wanted, it has erased years from my neck and jowls and I really do...

I Can Finally Enjoy Looking in the Mirror

First, I loved the staff. They were friendly, honest, and very helpful. I felt well-informed about my decision to have my eyes done. Dr. D was amazing and helped me understand the long-term benefits were more important that the short-term inconveniences of having facial surgery.

Now I Look As Young As I Feel! - Novato, CA

Dr. D is not only an excellent surgeon, he takes his time to evaluate a patient to be sure he understands what their goals are and what a realistic expectation would be. His manner is very personable and as a patient I felt very comfortable.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

51 and Look 21 - San Francisco, CA

His OR nurse who is a friend and works for several plastic surgeons, recommended him! And thank GOD she did. I am 12 days out from my surgery and already see amazing results. I'm now a 51 year old with a 21 year old body...I have LESS cellulite than I did before the liposuction because as a part of the surgery he includes endermologie. None of the other MD's I received quotes from include endermologie cellulite removal. He's not just a doctor, he's a miracle worker. I had upper arms, inner and outer thighs, abs, flanks and everything in between. I call it "the head to toe" liposuction. He goes the extra mile and he is so available for any questions or concerns. He even texted me on Christmas to make sure I was ok. NOW that's really unusual and wonderful. The other great gift this doctor gives his patients is peace of mind. He is so committed to excellence and a great result that if you are not happy or if you don't heal evenly you can go back in for free (except for the anesthesia) and get a revision. So there really is nothing to worry about. Also his anesthesiologist is absolutely fantastic. Dr. Gaynor was very personable and really listened to what was going on with me after the surgery. He made sure I was feeling NO pain and they allowed me to stay for over 4 hours in recovery before my hour long ride home. A more professional team I've never met!

5 out of 5 stars IPL

My IPL Treatment Erased Years of Sun Damage! - San Francisco, CA

Overall Dr. Delgado's practice lived up to my high expectations. The nurse who performed my treatment was very helpful in answering my questions, and letting me know what kind of result to expect from my IPL treatment. The only reason that I gave four, rather than five stars for wait times is because it is a very busy practice, and I would suggest booking your procedure in advance to find an appointment that fits your schedule.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

My Greatest Anti-Aging

Dr. Delgado understands and respects the courage it takes for a patient to come to him about changing something as personal as your body. He always made me feel at ease by the way he listened to my goals, understood how to incorporate them into my lifestyle, took the time to explain procedures and even made me do some of my own research (implants) so that I felt empowered. Dr. Delgado was with...

Now a Less Invasive Surgical Option for Gynecomastia Patients, Presented by Dr. Miguel Delgado
