"As I approached my 60th birthday I made the decision that I wanted to have a facelift, I wanted to look as young as I felt. This is a difficult decision because some results I have seen look so unnatural. I was afraid I might end up with a pulled look, like so many movie stars I have seen and they can afford to go to any surgeon! But I was referred by a friend who had her facelift done by Dr. D and she looked great. After my initial consultation, I knew I had found my surgeon! Dr. D spent a lot of time explaining what he recommended and how he would do it."
"I had a full tummy tuck with liposuction to my flanks on March 12, 2009. I have no regrets and am looking forward to my new fully recovered body. I have been contemplating this procedure for a while and am very happy with my surgeon and his staff. I was tired of having all the extra skin in my stomach area and it seemed to only be getting worse with age even though I work out regularly and eat healthy. I still have a little swelling and am wearing my stomach wrap all the time. The first five days were the most difficult but I had a pain pump along with muscle relaxers and pain medicine that made the entire process much more bearable. Resting in bed I had no pain. The only minor pain was if I coughed or moved wrong. I had pretty intense back spasms for the first week but the more walking around the house I did the better it got. I went back to work on the 23rd of March and was moving very slowly that first week back but was pretty much standing up straight. I am now able to stand up straight, still a little tired and I am not working out yet but that will soon change. Definitely get more than one opinion when looking at surgeons, for sure use a board certified doctor and follow all instructions!"
"Because I needed to be proud of ME again. I am a great man and felt held back by this deformation of my body. Thanks Dr. D!!!!!! For those men considering gynecomastia surgery, I suggest they give it serious attention as a way of dealing with an important self image issue. It can be a great way to help one-self gain a sense of self confidence and improved well being possible only a major change brings. I know myself from my own experience that it does offer something that no other avenue can accomplish to this extent."
"I was fortunate enough to have had the procedure done by whom I can honestly say must be one of the best. From my first consultation through surgery to follow up visits, Dr. D was excellent and exceeded my expectations. I found him to be professional, caring, clear and completely attentive to my individual situation from the very beginning. He explained things well, gave very informative information and provided extremely accurate details of what to expect of the surgery. Everything that was outlined in the personal analysis was pertinent and detailed. His video was particularly helpful with the three case histories and provided very good answers to almost all questions one could have. All in all I would highly recommend Dr. D to any man considering this path in seeking an improved appearance and consequent self identity."
"4 weeks ago I had a facelift by Dr. Delgado. 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 face and I really do look rested and happy. I still can't believe it when I look in the mirror. I found all of the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful from making that first appointment to the wonderful surgical staff. The anesthesiologist, Dr. Gaynor called me the evening before as did Dr. Delgado to answer any last minute questions, I was very reassured. I woke from the surgery and the grogginess lifted within the hour and I was home in bed and enjoying a Jamba Juice a few hours later. I highly recommend a visit to Dr. Delgado if you are considering any kind of cosmetic procedure, you will not be disappointed!"
"I had a mommy makeover. This wasn't an easy decision for me, as I felt I should be able to get my pre-pregnancy body back myself, after all, look at A. Jolie or H. Klum... My self esteem had really I had suffered because I couldn't get my old body back. After visiting Dr. Delgado and then speaking with his staff, I decided to go for it. I couldn't be happier. He's a brilliant surgeon and every step of the way I felt secure, safe and 'human'. Two months post surgery, I have lost 14lbs, two sizes and when I look in the mirror, I no longer hate myself. Thank you Dr. Delgado, you gave me my life back!!"

"Dr. Delgado performed sclerotherapy on a varicose vein that I had on my ankle. It was not a good candidate for a successful injection, since it was so low on the leg, and already bulging up like a blueberry. However, I am delighted to report that the treatment was entirely successful. Although I was more concerned with results than I was with the possibility of pain with the injection, I was amazed that the injection was quick and completely painless. As a nurse with a laser hair removal practice (working under a different doctor's supervision,) I refer my patients with confidence to Dr. Delgado for their plastic surgery needs."
"Dr. Delgado did a browlift & liposuction on me about 1-2 yrs. ago. I can not say enough positive about the care that I received from him & his staff. I liked that he has his own operating room; it was much nicer than having to go to the hospital for the surgery. The surgery nurse called my husband in the middle of the surgery to let him know that everything was going well. This eased his nervous mind & he was grateful for the update. After care was also excellent-Dr. Delgado himself called me the day after surgery to make sure everything was fine. I felt very well taken care of. I am very pleased with the results that I got from the surgery. I was worried that I would look like I had a 'startled' or plastic look after the browlift. It looks very natural. I am thrilled!!"

"Dr. Delgado is the only person I will allow to serve any of my aesthetic needs. He is an artist and an absolute perfectionist. He listens carefully to my concerns and tailors a plan that considers both my expectations and my budget. He then meticulously executes my vision and ensures my complete satisfaction before leaving the office.
My experience with Dr. Delgado has been confined to injectibles, but I have many friends and acquaintances that have undergone cosmetic surgery with him and look fantastic even years later.
Dr. Delgado has never disappointed me and I count on him to keep me looking fresh and natural"
"My story I had a little puberty gyno on the right side, was removed with a gland excision when I was military ten years or so ago. Guess what at 30 after using a legal supplement I got one left puffy nipple and the side that had the gland remove did not get puffy but started to look curved like a female breast. While they were not the most prominent I noticed.
I was a heavy lifter, 6.0, 220 lbs 13% body fat on the high days. Great shape but if I hit a hot tub or warm day the left nipple was puffy and the right side looked fat. I put doing this off for 6 years, trying everything to get rid of it, like eating hormone free foods, stopping anything with parabens or flouride. Nothing worked. After someone said I looked really huge but had man boobs I got mad and made the call. (GF said she did not notice anything).
I worked with Dr. Delgado in SF and just set it up. The surgery was normal no complications, etc. After about three weeks my left chest that had no prior surgery looks like a professional body builders. You have no idea what gyno does do a pec until you get it out of there. The gland was excised and lipo was done, it looks excellent. The other side did not have a lot of gland but had fatty tissue. This was the second time this one was cut so may have to wait on the final since it is swollen but it does not look as round. Both look like a chest should, the left looks like a lifters chest and is actually folding over like one. The before pics and just now at three weeks are worlds apart.
First lesson if you do it get it done right, the Right side will probably not be perfect like the left since its a second op, but still will look good I believe after the swelling goes away.
If you just have puffy nipples, 100% yes get this done, the chest looks perfect afterwards.
I cant stress this enough, I was the on the fence for years, it is worth every cent. And if you want a good Doc, Dr. Delgado in San Francisco was wonderful. If you can come to Cali use him, but either way get a good doctor and get it done right the first time. Don't look for discounts in this procedure."
"Simply the best...
Dr. Delgado is a unique combination of highly skilled physician with an artist’s eye for the smallest detail so that the resulting surgery is natural, painless (yes, painless) and never suggests the hours of meticulous preparation and surgery that goes into the refreshing results!
The professionalism exhibited by not only him but also his office and operating room staff strikes a great balance of confidence and comfort making you feel unique and special so your decisions – from consultation through surgery and recovery are made with ease not pressure. During the initial consultation the procedure(s) you want will be carefully evaluated and if, for whatever reason, he feels your expectations are not realistic or the results cannot be satisfactorily achieved he will tell you.
The comments after my face lift - ten years ago - with Dr. Delgado were always "you look really rested," "have you changed your hair style?" "what spa did you go to?" but never suggesting, or even asking, if I had had cosmetic surgery. The nicest part though was looking in the mirror and seeing "me" still there since I didn’t want to look different, just refreshed and I couldn’t have been more pleased. Now, I will go back for slight "fine tuning" of neck and jaw line without hesitation this summer. In addition, a friend from out of the country had surgery with him last summer after seeing how I looked "before and after," hearing my experience of the surgery and recovery and then consulting with him. Likewise, my husband will have some procedures done on our next trip to the states. It is not to be entered into lightly, or for the wrong reasons, but if cosmetic surgery is right for you then you couldn’t make a better choice than Dr Delgado no matter where you live – it’s worth the trip for the best!"

"Hello, I am 40 years old and from North Dakota. I have lived with gynecomastia since adolescence and spent close to 30 years feeling embarrassed and trying to exercise or diet my way to a flat chest. Since early on I have always known about gynecomastia but did not have the courage, to seek a professional opinion.
This past summer I finally made the decision to consult a doctor. I decided to use the internet to search,for a doctor with specialized experience in gynecomastia. Dr. Delgado's site gave me the answers to a lot of my questions and being out of state,they appeared to be ready to assist me any way they could. I had time off, so I decided to travel there and meet him in person,for a consultation. I was nervous about revealing my condition to anyone,but upon arriving at Dr. Deglado's office I was made to feel welcome and relaxed,the staff was incredibly nice,Dr. Delgado was very friendly and honest in explaining if surgery could help me and what kind of results I could expect. During the consultation Dr. Delgado gained my confidence and trust and we set up a surgery date for within two weeks.
It has been five weeks since surgery and I'm looking and feeling great,in a week I will be able to take off the compression vest (yea!),it is probably the most discomfort of the whole experience and it's not that bad and start exercising again. The surgery and recovery have gone great,very little pain,everything is healing good,I have been very impressed with my results. To anyone considering this surgery,my advice is go for it and whether your in state our out of state like me it is well worth it and Dr. Delgado is a great,experienced choice to achieve the best results.
Thanks so much to Dr. Delgado and his staff, Dr. Gaynor the anesthesiologist,the nurses and overnight nurses aid,you have made what I thought would be a humiliating experience,both pleasant and uplifting. Thanks for giving me a chance at a better life,full of confidence."

"Dr. Delgado is wonderful. He has been my cosmetic surgeon for years and he not only is excellent in his profession, but he is kind and understanding. Isn't that what we all need? There was a time when I could not leave our home for my botox treatment and Dr. Delgado went out of his way to come to our home for my procedure. It doesn't get better than that. I highly recommend him for your cosmetic surgery needs."
"Finding the right plastic surgeon can be a very challenging experience. You want to find one that not only has expert skills but also understands exactly what your own personal goals are.
After meeting with several plastic surgeons, I met with Dr. Delgado. I had checked his credentials and knew he had the experience and training that was important to me. And then when I met with him I felt an immediate sense that he really understood what I was hoping to achieve, his suggestions were excellent and I am thrilled with my results.
"I had a tummy tuck and liposuction of my back by Dr. Miguel Delgado. I am so happy with the results of my surgery. I have a whole new body that I can be proud of, my clothes fit better. I can't stop looking in the mirror at my flat stomach, no more pooching belly. The care I received was personal and professional. Dr. Delgado is a meticulous surgeon and takes great pride in his work. His care and sensitivity made my recovery with the last amount of effort. I highly recommend Dr. Delgado for your surgical needs."
"After years and years of considering breast augmentation, I finally decided to look into it. I researched all topics and studies on implants on the internet and had consultations with 5 qualified surgeons. I knew Dr. Delgado was the best choice. I knew I was going to be a difficult case because of my structure and I felt I could trust Dr. Delgado. I am thrilled with the result! I know I made the best choice. I couldn't be happier! - Patient wishes to remain anonymous"
"I have been a client of Dr. Delgado's since April, 1996. At the time, I had been considering cosmetic surgery for a few years and was naturally apprehensive about my initial consultation with Dr. Delgado. Dr. Delgado sensed my nervousness and immediately put me at ease. In addition to his graciousness and professional demeanor, he answered all my questions in a forthright and specific manner. I was so pleased with the final outcome of my procedure that the following year I had several other procedures performed, including liposuction and facial laser resurfacing. I am thrilled with the results and have only the highest regard for Dr. Delgado, both as a physician and as a person."
"Dr. Delgado is very conscientious, kind and personable. I have had only wonderful experiences with him and his staff. My thighs and tummy are beautiful and scarring from my tummy tuck is quickly fading away."
"I was impressed with Dr. Delgado's attention to new techniques and his dedication to his profession. The day of my eyelift I felt extremely nervous, but was quickly put at ease by the doctor's staff. After the surgery, which took place in Dr. Delgado's office, his staff made sure I had everything I needed at home and helped immensely. My blepharoplasty was remarkably painless and I am thrilled with the results!"
"AGAIN! I returned to Dr. Delgado for my tummy tuck. After bearing a couple of 10 1/2 lb. babies, I look like I'm 19 again (well, at least my tummy does)."
"Dr. Delgado is more than an excellent surgeon, he is also an artist, a sculptor of bodies. He is only satisfied with a job that's done right. He made me feel safe and confident and I was always treated with friendly respect."
