What People Say About Dr. Ronald Edelson, MD

I had a surgery with a poor aesthetic result. The result has been life altering in a negative way. It has been very expensive to try to improve the outcome and I am anxious I will be unable to get to a place where I am content. In hindsight, the initial evaluation was cursory and I was not properly informed of the risks/benefits. He either overestimated his aesthetic abilities or did not care to inform me of the possible outcomes so that I would/could better weigh the options.

I have been a patient of Dr. Edelson for over 14 years. He did a breast lift/breast reduction on me 14 years ago. I have always been a large breasted person all my life. I developed very early in life. When I originally decided to have the first breast procedure I went did a ton of research and visited with 6 different doctors from San Diego all the way up to Los Angeles. I decided to go with Dr. Edelson because of his reputation and how amazing his work was. His office staff is out of this worl

Best rhinoplastly in San Diego. I kept breaking my nose and it formed a lump. I recently broke my nose surfing and couldn't breathe properly. Dr. Edelson gave me a better looking face and fixed my breathing issues. I can't thank him enough.

Had a tummy tuck.Doc told me to wait a year before seeing results.Still had a big belly AND waiting that long nothing could be done.He told me I should have lost weight before surgery.Tried Small Claims Ct.They said I couldn't have rep. so Judge didn't listen.Doc agreed results from 1 procedure was bad. His admin. sec. said I was lucky cuz the 60s styles were back "in" so stomach not noticeable & "you get what you pay for." Side scar on 1 hip has huge puffy area. Neck & arms from lipo sagged.

Dr Edelson performed my tummy tuck. He's an amazing doctor who gives the highest quality care before, during, & after surgery. He saw me at every post op appointment (removed stitches & drain himself) & patiently answered all my questions. He gives you his phone # after surgery if you have any questions.His office & operating room staff provided the same high quality care. I felt completely confident entrusting my care to him and highly recommend him if you're looking for a plastic surgeon.
