Art

Dr. Hidalgo is a practicing artist and believes it to be an important method for sharpening aesthetic vision. “How you see is critical in both art and plastic surgery. I find the two very complementary. Art allows me to appreciate fine nuances in shape and form that are critical to achieving an optimal result in plastic surgery procedures, whether it is a facelift, a breast reduction, or a rhinoplasty. I believe there is no better method for training and refining your eye than to be continually engaged as a visual artist.” Dr. Hidalgo works in a graphite medium for his drawings and oils for his paintings. A few examples of his work are shown.

A biology and studio art double-major, Hidalgo followed the pre-medical track from his first year on the Hilltop, deciding that “biology was the most logical major” since he wanted to become a doctor. But in his sophomore year, Hidalgo branched out, enrolling in art classes because he had loved painting and drawing since childhood.
