About Dr. Medina
Dr. Medina




Dr. Carlos R. Medina completed college at the University of Puerto Rico, where he developed an interest to pursue a career in Medicine. While completing medical school in his native country, he became a member and student president of the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Society. His achievements allowed him to have the opportunity to complete a full 5-year general surgery residency at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

During his training as a surgeon, Dr. Medina published 17 manuscripts, participated on 16 national meeting presentations and wrote a book chapter on a surgery book as well. His hard work earned him the Moses Memorial Endowed Award for Outstanding Teaching at the Department of Surgery at Temple University.

As administrative chief resident, he decided to stay at Temple University and complete his plastic, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery training. Shortly after, Dr. Medina became double board certified by the American Board of Surgery and American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Medina’s plastic surgery career started in the city of Miami as the lead plastic surgeon at a trauma center performing complex facial, upper extremity and lower extremity reconstructions. Prior to opening his private practice, Dr. Medina served as the medical director of South Florida’s busiest burn center.

Over the years, he has performed thousands of plastic surgical procedures giving him the experience to develop new techniques to correct deformities from botched cosmetic procedures. Currently, Dr. Medina has a boutique cosmetic surgery practice that provides a safe, professional and sophisticated approach to popular procedures such as mommy makeover, liposuction, tummy tuck, face lift, breast augmentation/lift, fat transfer and injection of fillers/Botox.
