Your body and your face are your most precious possessions. The decision to have cosmetic surgery should be a personal one and well-thought out. What are your needs? What are your expectations? Are they realistic? Whether you desire a more youthful body or face, a change to your features, or simply a rejuvenating treatment, Dr. Delgado can give you the advice you need to make an informed decision that is
right for you.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck) - Marin County
If a more toned abdomen is your goal and diet and exercise don’t help, then an abdominoplasty (also called tummy tuck) may be a good choice for you.
Abdominoplasty is designed to smooth and flatten the abdomen by excising excess skin, fat, and may also tighten the underlying muscles of the abdominal wall. In some cases, liposuction is used to accentuate the definition of the abdomen.
Abdominoplasty is best suited for men and women who are in good health, and have loose abdominal skin or excess abdominal fat that doesn’t respond to diet or exercise.
You may be a candidate for abdominoplasty if you have any of the following:
Excess or hanging abdominal skin
An abdomen that protrudes, unnaturally
Weak abdominal muscles that cause an abdominal bulge
Many candidates are females who have had children or men and women who have had a significant weight loss. If you are planning to get pregnant, or lose a significant amount of weight, then this should be discussed.
J.G. - 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.
Julie Hemming - 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.
Millie - 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
Dennis - 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.
Inge - 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.
Jeannie - (not her real name) 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!
Jeannie - 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).
Alyce - 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.
