5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation


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!!!

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

A Wonderful Experience - Sioux City, IA

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.

Great Doctor! - Sioux City, IA

Dr. G put me at ease the moment he walked into the exam room. Answered all my questions and genuinely cares for you as a patient. I am extremely happy with my results and highly recommend him. I had several consultations with other doctors and by far, he was my favorite!!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction for Chronic Neck, Shoulder and Arm Pain

Dr. Gallego is professional, friendly and sincere. He took the time to address any concerns and he answered my questions completely and clearly. My scars are fading and it's almost impossible to see that surgery was done at all. I am so very grateful for Dr. Gallego's surgical skill. After 3 months post surgery I am finished with scheduled follow up, but was assured by Dr. Gallego and his staff to contact them if I have any concerns in the future. This reassurance is comforting and I'm glad treatment is over but I will miss Dr. Gallego and his friendly supportive staff.

5 out of 5 stars Mohs Surgery

Patient Care - Yuba City, CA

I had skin cancer removed from my head and at the same time he grafted skin from my leg over the area on my head. He explained everything to me and was very professional and kind. I had some bleeding from the skin graft area on a Sunday and contacted his office who connected me to him within minutes. He calmed me down and told me it was common for this to occur and walked me thru the process...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

50 Year Old Woman, Tummy Tuck , Flank and Chin Lipo. - Yuba City, CA

Dr Gallego is awesome! His skill is very apparent, my incision is healing so well and the placement is so low that I am able to cover it completely with bikini panties! He is so compassionate and professional. He did a tummy tuck, flanks and chin Lipo three months ago. I look and feel amazing. Dr Gallego changed my life. My self confidence was nonexistent and now my self confidence has hit the roof! My husband is thrilled with my results and I am too. I don't have to hide my tummy anymore with baggy clothes. Calll his office today. You'll be so happy with he and his office staff.

The abdominal deformity typically includes an excess of skin,...

Is Your Plastic Surgeon Board Certified?

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...
