Home / Brand Post / Dr Mel Thomas Ortega encourages people to pursue careers in plastic surgery

Owing to patients’ fears of appearing vain or superficial, contemporary history has generally viewed plastic surgery as a taboo. One can easily think that the increasingly-positive view on the topic is a recent development brought about by the younger generations’ focus on personal empowerment and mental health.

However, the early days of cosmetic surgery were rooted in this sort of medical empowerment and problem-solving. The first plastic surgeons used crude reconstructive surgery techniques to help those with injuries and deformities gain a more "normalappearance that helped them better integrate into society. As the field grew in popularity, early practitioners gradually pushed the boundaries of innovation, working in close coordination with patients to give them a body they can feel good in.

Today, doctors like Dr. Mel Thomas Ortega continue to push a similar brand of plastic surgery; they dedicate themselves to the pursuit of innovation while remaining committed to patient care. From his clinics at Spectrum Aesthetics and iBody Aesthetics in Miami, Florida, Dr. Mel Ortega espouses a modern, body-positive approach to cosmetic surgery. Central to this is an open yet secure relationship between patient and practitioner, one that works closely with a client’s motives and concerns to ensure that any treatment plan developed gives not just what the patient wants but also what they need.

In his 30 years of experience as a double-board certified General and Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Mel Thomas Ortega has pushed the envelope in post weight-loss reconstructive surgery technologies to help patients get the bodies they desire from their weight loss journey. Beyond this, Dr. Mel Ortega and his team are also experienced with a variety of surgical and non-surgical procedures that allow them to offer a wide range of solutions for the specific concerns of each patient.

Dr. Mel Thomas Ortega’s approach has granted him widespread acclaim and financial success, with surgeries booked months in advance. His experience and expertise have earned him awards such as the RealSelf Top 100 Physicians for multiple years. He’s also been featured in various TV and radio programs as well as national newspapers and magazines.

Today, Dr. Mel Ortega continues to endorse his own brand of plastic surgery that combines dedication to patient care with an inquisitive nature that passionately strives to improve the field. When not attending to patients, he can be found mentoring a new generation of plastic surgeons in the form of his pre-med and medical students or educating the general population on plastic surgery through his Instagram feed.

Through his work, Dr. Mel Thomas Ortega hopes to empower patients with a renewed sense of confidence and give the common person the power to make an informed choice through basic plastic surgery education. Through everything from his work in the clinic, life as a mentor, and even his Instagram feed, Dr. Mel Ortega hopes to instill his modern take on his practice. He aims “to highlight the inquisitive nature of plastic surgery and the problem-solving and creativity that it generates".
