Miguel A. Delgado, Jr., MD, FACS, holds the two credentials most coveted by plastic surgeons practicing in the United States, namely certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and membership in the American Society of Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Delgado was privileged to train at some of the most prestigious institutions in the country. He graduated with honors from medical school at University of California San Francisco in 1982 and continued with internship and residency at Johns Hopkins University teaching hospital in Baltimore, Maryland. He went on to complete a plastic surgery residency at Stony Brook University Medical Center in East Meadow, New York.
As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Delgado joined the staff of Kaiser Permanente Medical Group in San Rafael in 1988. In 1989, Dr. Delgado left Kaiser to open a private practice in Novato, adjacent to the original Novato Community Hospital on Hill Road. When Novato completed a new hospital facility on Rowland Way in 1992, Dr. Delgado joined many other Novato doctors in moving their offices to the new campus. It was on the new Novato Community Hospital campus that Dr. Delgado chose to open Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center. There he could provide his surgical patients, not only with private, concierge care in a state-of-the-art surgical facility, but also with that extra measure of safety and reassurance based the surgery center’s contiguous location to a full service hospital.
For the convenience of his patients based in San Francisco and points south, Dr. Delgado opened a second office in 1994 at 450 Sutter Street, one block from Union Square. Although surgeries are scheduled at his Novato surgery center, Dr. Delgado provides consultations, office procedures, pre-operative appointments and post-operative follow-up care at both his Novato and his San Francisco offices.
Dr. Delgado’s Marin Cosmetic Surgery Center has been honored by notable visits from the media, including the BBC (British Broadcasting Company), Discovery Australia, and Fox News, all of whom have filmed documentaries that have been broadcasted throughout the United States and abroad. As a result of this national and international exposure, particularly with Gynecomastia and Mommy Makeover procedures, Dr. Delgado and his staff have had the pleasure of serving patients from all regions of the United States, as well as from far points around the world. Patients have traveled from Alaska, Hawaii, and the East Coast, as well as Canada, Australia, England, Thailand, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, to have Dr. Delgado perform their surgical procedures.
Not only have patients come great distances to see Dr. Delgado, but Dr. Delgado has traveled as far as Central America to volunteer his surgical skills and expertise to aid economically disadvantaged and underserved populations. Dr. Delgado and anesthesiologist Dr. Randy Gaynor were part of a Faith in Practice surgical team to Guatemala where they performed life changing operations for patients suffering from disfigurements caused by burns as well as birth defects, including cleft palates and lips.
Dr. Delgado takes great pride in his plastic surgery specialty and constantly strives to keep abreast of the latest, most advanced techniques in order to offer his patients the best options available. Though always eager to embrace new technology, he is also conservative and cautious by nature. Any new approach or device must pass the test of time before Dr. Delgado will incorporate it into his practice. Likewise, Dr. Delgado has great respect for the inherent risks of any surgical procedure, including the anesthesia risks. He is particularly conscientious in screening potential surgical candidates. Before clearing a patient for surgery, he carefully evaluates their medical history, performs a pre-operative physical exam, and reviews their laboratory and other test results.
One quality that sets Dr. Delgado apart from many other surgeons is his passion for patient satisfaction. He is known by those who work with him for his propensity to go the extra distance, even at his own expense, to please a patient and deliver the results that will fulfill the patient’s hopes and expectations. Never one to brush off a patient’s concerns, Dr. Delgado takes the time to listen to his patients and address any issues they may raise to the full extent of whatever is possible and professionally reasonable.
Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Dr. Delgado currently resides with his wife and their two children in Novato. He is an accomplished gourmet cook with his barbequed ribs, paella, and homemade pizzas being legendary among his family, friends, and staff members. Over the years, he has become a connoisseur of fine wine and has recently ventured into growing his own chardonnay and pinot noir grapes. Delgado Family Vineyards wines have been showcased at charity fundraising functions, such as those supporting medical mission work.
Dr. Delgado is a person who loves his chosen profession and this fact is reflected in the exceptional quality of his work. Likewise, his personal and professional integrity, his humility, and his love of life have enabled him to attract and retain a loyal and competent staff that continues to support him in providing superior plastic surgery services.
Simply the best…..
Dr. Delgado is a unique combination of highly skilled physician with an artist’s eye for the smallest detail so that the resulting surgery is natural, painless (yes, painless) and never suggests the hours of meticulous preparation and surgery that goes into the refreshing results!
The professionalism exhibited by not only him but also his office and operating room staff strikes a great balance of confidence and comfort, making you feel unique and special, so your decisions – from consultation through surgery and recovery - are made with ease not pressure. It is not to be entered into lightly, or for the wrong reasons, but if cosmetic surgery is right for you then you couldn’t make a better choice than Dr Delgado no matter where you live – it’s worth the trip for the best!
Dr. Miguel Delgado is an outstanding doctor. He did an amazing job with a tummy tuck. I am very satisfied with the outcome. The doctor provided excellent service from consultation, procedure and the follow-ups. Not to remiss, his staff members are friendly and make the patient feel at home. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering plastic surgery. Dr. Delgado, thank you for everything!!!

Hello Dr. Delgado,
Just wanted to tell you that all has worked out nearly perfectly. The scarring that was present post-op has fully resolved, as far as I can tell, and I think you did a fantastic job of near perfection with both my surgeries.

I just weighed myself on a whim today (I try to avoid the scale) and I was 180!!! That's a whole 20 lbs since March and 40 since my heaviest. It just keeps coming off! I'm eating healthier and getting out and about and just joined a fantastic gym.
Thank you to everyone in the office. This has truly been a life-changing event for me and I can't even begin to tell you how grateful I am.

I would highly recommend Dr Delgado, he not only has far greater practical experience of this surgery than any surgeon I could find in Australia, but he is also a very personable guy, easy to speak to and very understanding. The set up there is first class, Dr Delgado’s consulting rooms and operating theatre/recovery rooms are all together in one suite at the medical complex in Novato, and because of this you don’t get sent to a separate hospital for the surgery it’s all integrated and under his control.

I had a mommy makeover. This wasn't an easy decision for me, as I felt I should be able to get my pre-pregnancy body back myself, after all, look at A. Jolie or H. Klum... My self-esteem had really I had suffered because I couldn't get my old body back. After visiting Dr. Delgado and then speaking with his staff, I decided to go for it. I couldn't be happier. He's a brilliant surgeon and every step of the way I felt secure, safe and 'human.' Two months post-surgery, I have lost 14 lbs., two sizes and when I look in the mirror, I no longer hate myself. Thank you Dr. Delgado, you gave me my life back!!
Finding the right plastic surgeon can be a very challenging experience. You want to find one that not only has expert skills but also understands exactly what your own personal goals are.
After meeting with several plastic surgeons, I met with Dr. Delgado. I had checked his credentials and knew he had the experience and training that was important to me. And then when I met with him I felt an immediate sense that he really understood what I was hoping to achieve, his suggestions were excellent and I am thrilled with my results.
I had a tummy tuck and liposuction of my back by Dr. Miguel Delgado. I am so happy with the results of my surgery. I have a whole new body that I can be proud of, my clothes fit better. I can't stop looking in the mirror at my flat stomach, no more pooching belly. The care I received was personal and professional. Dr. Delgado is a meticulous surgeon and takes great pride in his work. His care and sensitivity made my recovery with the last amount of effort. I highly recommend Dr. Delgado for your surgical needs.
Dr. Delgado is more than an excellent surgeon; he is also an artist, a sculptor of bodies. He is only satisfied with a job that's done right. He made me feel safe and confident and I was always treated with friendly respect.
After years and years of considering breast augmentation, I finally decided to look into it. I researched all topics and studies on implants on the internet and had consultations with 5 qualified surgeons. I knew Dr. Delgado was the best choice. I knew I was going to be a difficult case because of my structure and I felt I could trust Dr. Delgado. I am thrilled with the result! I know I made the best choice. I couldn't be happier!
