Why Choose Dr. Toledo
While Dr. Toledo’s qualifications and experience as a plastic surgeon are extensive, successful cosmetic plastic surgery requires far more than technical skills. The time Dr. Toledo spends with you personally before any procedure is performed will be as important as the procedure itself. He will thoroughly cover your questions, your expectations, and your individual desires and wishes, as well as maintain your privacy with sensitivity and understanding. After this initial consultation, you should feel completely comfortable with your decision, having developed a trusting patient/doctor relationship.
Choosing a surgical procedure and the right doctor is a personal decision not to be taken lightly. You, as the patient, and Dr. Toledo must weigh not only the physical considerations but the emotional and psychological ones as well. By improving your appearance, cosmetic surgery can enhance your emotional health and improve your self-esteem. However, this can be attained only if your expectations are realistic. By understanding the limitations of plastic surgery, together you and Dr. Toledo will establish reasonable goals that can be predictably achieved.
“Your plastic surgeon should be a rare combination of artist, scientist, and close friend. I am fully dedicated to the pursuit of perfection in changing my patients’ undesirable traits subtly to achieve a natural appearance rather than an extreme, artificial or operated look. Only then can we collectively achieve the physical and emotional harmony that satisfies your expectations and justifies choosing me as your surgeon.” – Dr. George Toledo

"I went to Dr. Toledo for a septo-rhinoplasty in February 2022. I initially met with an ENT in June 2020 due to breathing issues--he said I had a deviated septum and collapsed nostril, and referred me to a plastic surgeon to fix both at the same time. The ENT mentioned that straightening a nose is technically challenging even for a skilled plastic surgeon, this made me kind of nervous about picking the right doctor because I didn’t want to end up with a botched pixie piglet nose. I looked into roughly 15 surgeons in the DFW and LA area before settling on Dr. Toledo. 1. He is a double board certified ENT & plastic surgeon. This was important to me because functional issues were my primary concern. 2. Doctor Toledo has done over 3,000 nose jobs in his 30 year career. Rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging surgeries from a technical standpoint, and it’s also the plastic surgery procedure with the highest revision rate. 3,000+ over 30 years is 2+ nose jobs per week (less two weeks vacation / year), that is a lot of opportunities to understand the nuances of a rhinoplasty. I wanted a doctor who has had plenty of practice before I got on his table. Try asking another doctor how many of X procedures have you done in their career, you will be hard pressed to get an answer. 3. Office staff are really nice and helpful. I had a lot of initial questions which they politely answered over the phone before my initial consultation. I value my time, and I felt that they did too in their professional and polite communication. This might seem like a lower priority than the experience of the surgeon, but these are the people you talk to 80% of the time. 4. He’s a fly fisher. As a fellow angler, I know the unspoken qualities one must possess to catch a fish. Patience, perseverance, thoughtfulness, focused, dexterous. I booked my surgery immediately after our initial consultation. Dr. Toledo is a straight shooter. He confirmed what the ENT said, told me what he could do, showed me a new nose proposal and that was it. Overall, I just like the guy, he’s professional, knows what he’s doing and has a cool demeanor. Dr. Toledo is not the guy who swings open the door and starts shmoozing you, he’s chill and normal. He’s not trying to convince you to go to him. So surgery day comes, I’m kind of freaked out because I’m an anxious creature. Dr. Toledo comes in with a cup of coffee, definitely has Coffee Mate creamer in his, maybe hazelnut and my anxiety melts away. Anyone who uses Coffee Mate creamer in 2022 is down to earth and confident--it’s unpretentious and confident. I wake up, I’m a zombie but oddly no pain really... He prescribed Tylenol #3 (ultra weak) but after surgery I saw why. I took half a painkiller every 8hrs for like 3 days and then just regular Tylenol. Surgery was Thursday, was back to work 1/2 day on Monday and fully back Tuesday. Oh, he also extracted this longterm zit I had on my cheek which was the best thing to wake up toCast came off 1 week later, nose internal splints came out at 3 weeks. WOAH, I did not realize you were supposed to be able to breathe out of your nose at 100% like your mouth. I really thought your mouth was the primary breathing hole for my entire life. Obviously, he hit the aesthetic aspect (I am not a pixie piglet) but the breathing is pretty life changing. Sleep is wildly improved, and I generally feel better. I’m only 4 weeks out, but I’m glad I chose Dr. Toledo and can’t wait to see how it looks in a few months when swelling subsides. Doctor Toledo is THE nose guy in Dallas. Easily a top rhinoplasty doctor in the US."
