5 out of 5 stars Facelift

46 and Ready for a Lift - New York, NY

Dr. Hidalgo is a gifted artist as well as a world-class surgeon. You can see from the sketches on his website and on the walls of his office that he has an excellent eye, incredible talent, and a fascination with the human face and form. He and his staff are welcoming, kind, and thoroughly professional. They listened carefully to my questions and answered in terms I could understand. I never felt in the least rushed. I am very pleased with my results and absolutely recommend Dr. Hidalgo!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

40 Yo, Lost Volume Due to Age/fitness, 5'5", 110 Lbs, 325CC Silicone Mod Plus Unders - New York, NY

Dr. Hidalgo gave me exactly the results I wanted. He achieved absolute perfection when he performed my breast augmentation. He is not flamboyant or as outgoing as some may prefer, he is quiet, but very professional, and I felt very comfortable with his soft-spoken caring demeanor. He is known for his very natural results, if you want the 'fake' look, he is not the doctor for you, but if you want perfect natural results, he is worth every penny.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

71 Years Old with Drooping Eyelids. New York, NY

Dr. Hidalgo is a very kind doctor. He was not pushy and understood exactly what I wanted... and he delivered! He answered all my questions/concerns. I felt very comfortable. His staff could not have been any nicer to me.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

First-rate Doctor - New York

I just had breast augmentation with Dr. Hidalgo and I have to say the entire process was seamless and pleasant. I felt like I was in good hands from my first consultation to my final follow-up appointment six weeks post-surgery. I felt confident that Dr. Hidalgo was going to give me the natural results I was hoping for and even directly after the surgery, I felt good and as if they already...

Subtle, Yet Striking Facial Transformation - New York

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

An Amazing Doctor. New York, NY

As a physician, I have a great appreciation for the high level of professionalism, fine surgical skills and amazing doctor/patient rapport that Dr. Hidalgo possesses. And, as a woman who just turned 50 (crazy, scary number), I honor how Dr. Hidalgo treats me with respect, makes me feel good about myself, listens to all of my requests and makes me feel good, happy and young! He is the only plastic surgeon that I will go to, and I always recommend him to my friends and patients! He is a perfect example of a great doctor!!!

From a Pleased Patient - New York, NY

Dr Hidalgo has been a complete pleasure through this entire experience. From first consult through the final follow up, he has made me feel comfortable and at ease. He has given complete guidance and his expert opinion, which made me feel like I was in the best hands. I would recommend him to everyone. He and his staff are the absolute most professional and amazing around, for sure the best in...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

A Refreshing Experience - New York

Overwhelmed by my tummy tuck results with Dr Hidalgo. I never thought I could could look better than my pre-baby body and I do! He is an absolute master at what he does along with being the most gentle and lovely doctor you will ever find. Endeavouring on a tummy tuck was not an easy decision and he was very patient with my long list of questions as were all the staff at Dr Hidalgo's practice. From the office staff to the nursing team they are all wonderfully warm and super supportive. Now that I am three months post surgery I couldnt be more thrilled with my body and my new life!!

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Splendid - New York, NY

I recently did my upper and lower eyes with Dr. Hidalgo. They look fantastic! So natural. My own daughter and close friends can not tell. I just look rested and like me ten years ago. I was concerned about operating in his office but there were no problems. The office staff, Ashley, Diane and Walt were very helpful and kind. I live very far away so it was a logistical nightmare but they...

43 Years Old, 3 Kids, Silicone Implant Rupture - New York

11 years ago I decided to get implants, at that time the other option was saline implants. My doctor insert the implants through my armpits and the recovery was very painful. After a while one of my implants capsulated and my surgeon did a second surgery to change the implant, my second complication was one of the saline implants ruptured. I had a third surgery and this time my doctor...

If a filler is injected a short time before a "drains -requiring- Facelift" wouldn't the filler ooze out with the plasma too?
