He also regularly performs tummy tucks, liposuction, and midbody lifts at the Highland Park Plastic Surgery Center.
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 had a rhinoplasty and facelift about 3 months ago. I love my nose and neck. Dr. Toledo did exactly what he told me he would. I trust him completely. His office staff was so nice every time I went in they are so warm and welcoming. I have sent him at least 5 friend who had rhinoplasty surgery too and they all rave about his work. I love Dr. Toledo. "
"I came to get a rhinoplasty a few months ago and it was the best decision I could’ve made. I was kind of doubtful at first but decided to listen to the positive reviews which left me absolutely loving my results. If you’re trying to find the BEST plastic surgeon choose TOLEDO."
"Dec 2022I had a huge midline hernia and needed it repaired along with a complete abdominal wall reconstruction. My abdomen was unsightly and huge! Dr. Toledo’s expertise and precision has resulted in a beautiful, flat abdomen!!!! I would not go to anyone else!! Dr. T and his staff are so compassionate, friendly and above and beyond in all their surgical procedures!!! This is my family’s 4th surgery with Dr. Toledo. He is beyond exceptional!Wonderful experience, once again!"
"Rhinoplasty- 2-3 weeks post op, and it only gets better! - Please read - If you are considering Rhinoplasty period, and/or pursuing Dr. Toledo for the surgery.First off I want to start off with the reviews I've read, this may shock you but I can see why some individuals claim his demeanor may not be 100% to your liking. When I first met with him, I was a little put off by some of his comments, as well as feeling as if my hopes were too high. Immediately, I thought what a waste of my consultation, I am going to see someone else! Then I realized... that was just me being entitled, comparative to the service you may expect from a salesperson or restaurant.Dr. Toledo is no salesperson, he is a realist, and a world class surgeon. Look him up, he's been on the news countless times, been on many medical boards and been involved in this field for more than 3, going on 4 decades! Yes surgery is a science, but his craftsmanship is an Art. He perfects that art in every surgery he does, never intents to do a half job, to simply collect and go like most surgeons would!He literally turns down surgeries and makes sure this is something you want or need! He's worked in non-profit organizations and missions to help the less privileged all over the world!SO, if he comes off a little abrupt or isn't exactly sugar coating, please remind yourself that this is one of the top surgeons for what you are searching for! He gets a lot of people who are either not serious, or doing it for the wrong reasons and he is trying to help us all get a better quality and confidence in our day to day living.As for the results it's not exactly what I pictured, because it ended up being even better! I am so happy I moved forward with him and I am 2-3 weeks post op, and it only gets better!Ask yourself, do you want whipped cream with a cherry on top and a subpar nose? Or prefer a careful, attentive and safe surgery with realistic expectations? If so, choose Dr. Toledo, and leave your ego at the door, you're here for a reason!Thank you too Dr. Toledo & his Staff (Esther too!) The Anesthesia Doctor was also amazing, no complaints!"
