Doctor Salas did a great job! The team has been available from day one through the entire process. Dr Salas has an aesthetic vision of what he does and is able to look at the bigger picture, differently than many other Surgeons who only work on the specific area required. I would highly recommend Salas Plastic Surgery!

Dr. Salas and his team are wonderful. They did a great job on my breast augmentation and abdominoplasty. I am five months post surgery, feeling great and very pleased my results.

I first met Dr. Salas back in Feb 2017 and was automatically impressed on how personable, professional and caring he was. I met with about 10 other plastic surgeons and Dr. Salas was the only one to recommend that I lose weight. . So far I’m a month in and my results look amazing! His attention throughout my recovery has been exceptional! I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Salas to anyone looking for quality work and care. His staff is not far behind in professionalism, care & overall genuine people.

My experience with Dr. Salas has been amazing. I had a procedure done recently and I couldn’t be happier with the results. The recovery has been better than expected. Dr. Salas is very professional, talented, good plastic surgeon. I was extremely scared but he guided me through all the process, since the initial consultation through the day of surgery and made me feel calmed and confident. His staff is also amazing. His work is excellent and I definitely recommend Dr. Salas.

I got my lips injected recently with him & felt so comfortable getting the procedure done. He was informative and guided me in the right way to get the look I was aiming for. He was the first plastic surgeon I tried & feel no need to continue looking! Him and his staff are so professional but at the same time made me feel at ease. Scheduling an appointment with him is also extremly convenient.

I reccomend to use Dr. Salas with plastic surgery highly, I got a breast augmentation for the first time and loved the consultation that was very informative with information prior to the surgery. Pre-Op I was a little scared going into surgery and Dr. Salas was very caring wnd reassured me I would be ok. Post op was very smooth because of how caring Salas was. My breast implants turned out great and I reccomend all of my friends and family to him.
Victoria, Thank you so much for the kind words, it is our goal to make our patients feel comfortable in the whole experience with our practice, as well as achieving great results, and we like to think of our patients as becoming part of our plastic surgery family, Sincerely, Dr.Salas and your team at Salas Plastic Surgery Miami

Dr Salas is an excellent surgeon as well as a great person. I had an abdominoplasty 6 months ago and am extremely happy with the results. He is a perfectionist and it shows in my results-he takes the time to go the extra mile and do things the right way. Dr Salas spent considerable time with me pre and post op and always made me feel like I was a priority and not just another patient. His staff and office are top notch and very welcoming. I would definitely highly recommend Dr Salas!
I appreciate the kind words, and I'm very glad you are happy with your results! You made our day, as my staff and I take great pride in making each one of our patients feel like a priority!

Terrible experience!!! My nose looks terrible, left nostril bigger than the right one!!! I called several times trying to reach him, they said he'Ll call you back... After 18 months of my worst decision had the plastic surgery with Dr Salas I'm looking for an ENT...
It is unfortunate this happened to you. You mentioned you had this procedure approximately 18 months ago. That was at a surgical center that I rarely go to anymore and most likely there was a communication issue as I was never told of any of your concerns postop. As you can see from my other reviews, I am very attentive to all my patients, and have a private practice now. I urge you to please call my private office at the number listed here, and I would be happy to address any of your concerns.

After years of considering an elective surgery, I couldn't be happier with the overall care and results that I received from Dr. Salas and his staff. He is very knowledgeable in his area of expertise. From day 1, he made me feel comfortable and at ease. He went above and beyond to make sure as a patient the end result met my personal goals. He makes you feel comfortable, he listens to your wants, explains things very thoroughly and produces an even better end result. I highly recommend him.
Thank you for your kind words! I'm always happy to hear we achieved our goal of making you feel comfortable throughout your experience, and happy with your result!

So professional and takes the time to answer any questions as you have. Very neat and clean office, very central and available for free consultations! Really kind and listens to you in order to achieve your dream results.
Ms. Cole, It is always a pleasure to be able to listen to and answer my patients' questions so they can feel comfortable and confident in their decision to have their procedure with me. I'm glad we could help you achieve your goals!
