Dr. Ricardo Izquierdo and Face and Body Plastic Surgery, help people transform their lives through cosmetic treatment and personal support.
Over the last 25 years, we have helped over 11,000 men and women improve their appearance and lead better lives.
We approach treatment by listening to our patients’ needs and what they want to accomplish, learning how they live, discovering what’s really important to them, and working together to create the right treatment and procedure plan based on their goals and lifestyles.
Then we advise and support them through the process, helping with the inevitable roadblocks that come up along the way to success.
