Doctor's Profile

Dr. Salvador Recinos excels in plastic and cosmetic surgery of the face and body, to give his patients a natural healthy appearance that is perfectly contoured, fresh and youthful. In total, his experience includes over 4,000 cosmetic surgeries of the face, abdomen, bust and gluteus. Regarding facial surgery, he has concentrated special effort on rhinoplasty, or sculpting the perfect nose, performing more than 700 such surgeries since opening his private practice in 2009. His devotion is to prioritize your safety and comfort while achieving the goal that you have in mind.

Dr. Recinos’ technical and artistic mastery result in aesthetic procedures that are customized to the bone structure and expressive subtleties of each patient, so they have a younger appearance that’s not forced or artificial. A little lifting and volume create balanced and natural-looking outcomes, to work wonders for your confidence and self-esteem.

Facial rejuvenation, or “facelift”, refers to draping the skin and muscles slightly higher to counteract the effects of gravity. It could include a comprehensive approach including removal of fat pockets above and below the eyes, increasing or reducing the cheeks, or reshaping the nose. In planning for the optimal outcome, Dr. Recinos will not change you, just restore and enhance your natural ageless beauty.

As a regular attendee to the Preservation Rhinoplasty Global congress meetings, Dr. Salvador Recinos is uniquely qualified to perform nasal surgery to the highest standards, with the latest-generation techniques and materials. Patients might choose to have a rhinoplasty procedure for these reasons:

  • To reduce the size or shape of the tip.
  • Eliminate the hump at the bridge of the nose.
  • Change the shape and size of the nostrils.
  • To correct internal structures, such as deviated septum.
  • To achieve balance and symmetry of the nose to other facial features.

When we reach middle age, many people are surprised by how their metabolism and body shape has changed. Accumulation of fat pockets in the hips, thighs, abdomen and arms are almost impossible to reduce without the help of carefully considered cosmetic surgery techniques. Even after a significant weight loss for health and vitality, patients still have excess skin that needs to be removed to complete their goals of a firm and shapely figure. High-definition liposuction or ultrasonic liposculpture can be the answer they are looking for, to effectively resize or reshape targeted body parts.

Dr. Recinos has achieved consistently impressive results with the Vaser Liposuction high-frequency vibration technique, or LipoSelection. He uses Vaser ultrasonic probes, inserted into the fatty tissue together with a saline solution, to gently break the fat cells down. It is mixed with anesthetics to protect and preserve other tissues, and to reduce pain, bleeding, and bruising.

In this more modern and efficient FDA-approved technique, the vibration gently disengages and loosens the fat cells and ultimately emulsifies to remove volume from problem areas. The fat breaks down and mixes with the infused fluid to form a liquid that is removed from beneath the skin, to improve the aesthetics of a problem area. Dr. Recinos says, “This process is considered gentler than the more traditional liposuction techniques and offers me greater precision and accuracy to achieve the goal of highly-defined, smoothly-contoured body features.”

Dr. Recinos offers the latest in laser resurfacing techniques. Current CO2 laser scanning technology allows skin to be resurfaced more selectively than with dermabrasion or chemical peeling. The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer, helping to achieve total facial rejuvenation. A finely tailored approach must be used to address your specific goals, customizing your individual goals.

Your doctor’s extensive specialized experience provides the basis from which to explore some alternative solutions that give you, the patient, the best possible results. Precision surgery, diet and exercise, and confidence in your doctor all serve to rejuvenate your body and enhance self-confidence.

Dr. Recinos says: “The only way to create something great is to love what you do. My patients receive the best service with my team, because we constantly look for innovation. We are successful because we use the best technology and materials.”

Dr. Recinos operated on me in December 2015. I had a hard time due to personal reasons, but it looked beautiful and I like it a lot, after the surgery. I’m not perfect, but I look good and Dr. Salvador Recinos was a very good surgeon. If I need plastic surgery again I would do it with Dr. Recinos.
