Miguel A. Delgado, Jr. MD, F.A.C.S. – Gynecomastia Specialist of San Francisco Bay Area, California
Gynecomastia Surgery requires a keen technical knowledge and artistic skill. The most qualified surgeon you can select would be a board certified plastic surgeon. You want to plan and investigate your gynecomastia surgery as it is an investment in you. Having performed thousands of male breast reduction surgeries makes Dr. Delgado an expert. With his vast experience in revision gynecomastia, his practice in gyne revision has now reached 40%. He receives referrals for complicated cases from other physicians from most parts of the world. In 2010, Dr. Delgado purchased and maintains gynecomastia.org, the “Web’s Best Resource for Information”. Miguel A. Delgado, Jr., MD has the most prestigious credentials for American cosmetic plastic surgeons; membership in the American Society of Plastic Surgery and certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Delgado received his training at top Universities across the country. Graduating with distinction from medical school in 1982 from University of California San Francisco, he then completed his internship in Baltimore, MD, where he attended the top teaching hospital, Johns Hopkins University, and then continued there to complete his residency program. From there he went to, East Meadow, New York at Stony Brook University Medical Center in to complete his plastic surgery residency. In 1988 Dr. Delgado relocated to San Rafael, California where he worked as a plastic surgeon at Kaiser Hospital. Then in 1989, he opened his own private office Marin County. In 1994 to accommodate his South Bay and San Francisco patients, he opened a second office at 450 Sutter Street, one block from Union Square. In 2001, a new hospital opened at 180 Rowland Way in Novato, California, this prompted Dr. Delgado to move his office next door, at 165 Rowland Way, at the same time introducing Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center (MCSC), his own private surgery center. Having the new full service Novato Hospital contiguous to his surgery center, his patients have that additional degree of safety. Having his own private surgery center allows Dr. Delgado to offer his patients exceptional care in a state-of-the-art surgical facility. All surgical procedures are scheduled at Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center, in Novato, but both offices are available for consultations, pre and post-op appointments, and office procedures. Multiple media companies, such as; Fox News, Discovery Australia, the British Broadcasting Company (BBC), and others have filmed Dr. Delgado at Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center for documentaries shown all over the world. This has given Dr. Delgado exposure that has resulted in patients worldwide seeking him out for procedures such as male breast reduction and mommy makeovers. Dr. Delgado and his surgical team have treated patients from; Canada, Australia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and all over North America, from the Eastern Seaboard, to Alaska and Hawaii. Volunteering his time to help disadvantaged children, Dr. Delgado has traveled with Randy Gaynor, M.D., his anesthesiologist, to Guatemala. Participating with the group “Faith in Practice,” they used their surgical skills to perform life altering surgeries on children that suffered disfigurements such as; severe burns, birth deformities such as cleft palates, and cleft lips. Wanting to offer his patients the best that plastic surgery has to offer, Dr. Delgado is constantly keeping up to date with the latest innovations and cutting-edge techniques, however, he is cautious and conservative by nature and until new approaches and devices have proven effective and safe, he will not offer them to his patients. Always aware of the potential of anesthesia and surgical risks, Dr. Delgado will screen his surgery patients carefully before clearing them for surgery, by evaluating their medical history, reviewing lab results, and a physical exam. With his passion for patient satisfaction, Dr. Delgado has been set apart from other surgeons. He has a reputation with his staff of always aiming for perfection. Pleasing his patients by meeting their expectations and hopes has always been his goal. Taking the time to listen to the concerns of his patients has developed a patient surgeon relationship of incomparable value. Dr Delgado has served the San Francisco Bay Area, Sacramento and San Jose, California since 1988. Dr. Delgado is formerly from Columbus, Ohio; he now lives in Novato, California with his spouse and two children. He is a gifted gourmet cook specializing in; paella, fabulous pizza from a stone pizza oven, and barbequed ribs, which have become legendary with his friends, family, and staff.
