Dr. Hidalgo is a practicing artist and believes it to be vital for sharpening aesthetic vision.

“Art enhances my perception of nuances in shape and form.  This is critical to achieving optimal results in surgery, whether it is a facelift, a breast reduction, or a rhinoplasty. There is no better method for training and refining your eye than to be continually engaged as a visual artist.”

Dr. Hidalgo works in charcoal for his large scale drawings. Each one takes over a year to complete.  Below are a few examples.
