Overview

Cleveland Clinic Florida's Dermatology & Plastic Surgery program offers a wide range of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery services, all performed at Cleveland Clinic’s integrated medical center located in Weston, Florida, a suburb of Ft. Lauderdale, just north of Miami.

The experience and expertise of our surgeons is the main reason Cleveland Clinic Florida is the only facility in the county approved by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education to teach the art and science of plastic surgery.

Cleveland Clinic Florida's plastic surgeons are experts in breast reconstructive surgery and work as a team in collaboration with oncologists and surgeons in achieving the best possible results using innovative technology.
