Dedicated Hardworking Mellow
My name is Ofer Rodriguez, and I have always loved bringing out the beauty in my surroundings.
Growing up in Cali, Colombia, I was fortunate to be raised by loving parents in a naturally beautiful environment. I am grateful to be able to live in Miami, where we can enjoy the outdoors year-round.
I have always enjoyed using my hands to create and bring beauty to my environment. As a teenager, I worked in a family construction business, where my eye for detail was put to good use to make sure that every job was finished with polish.
I studied psychology at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where I developed an understanding of how our minds affect our outlook. Although outward physical beauty is only one aspect of a person, each of us has the right to feel good about ourselves, and that includes feeling good about how we look.
My medical school and internship training taught me how all the systems in the body are interdependent and how important it is to realize the impact on the patient of each decision I make as a physician.
During my surgical fellowship in plastic surgery, I dedicated myself to learning everything there was to learn about how to enhance the natural beauty of the human body. I had a wonderful training and will always be grateful to my instructors.
I consider myself to be incredibly fortunate to have had the opportunities that life has given me. I believe in giving back, which is why I have participated in close to a dozen medical missions through the years, performing surgeries on children who were born with deformities such as cleft lips, cleft palates, club foot, anotia and microtia (children born missing an ear), or on those who suffered from burn contractures or other injuries.
I believe that there is natural beauty in every one of us. I believe that it is my good fortune to be able to bring out the natural beauty in each one of my patients. Sometimes this involves surgery, sometimes it involves the use of Radiesse, Belotero and Xiomin, and sometimes it is a combination of things.
With each of my patients, I strive to listen to their needs, goals, and wants, and I work hard to give them that moment of “wow” when they see themselves after my work is done.
Of course, every medical procedure carries risks, and I do my very best to keep my patients safe before, during, and after surgery. I regularly attend conferences and read the latest studies to keep up with the most up-to-date standards in patient safety.
Over the years, I have developed and honed my surgical techniques to achieve the maximum effect with minimal impact to the patient. This approach leads to quicker healing and less downtime.
I welcome the chance to discuss the ways I can bring out and enhance your natural beauty.
When I am not with patients, I spend my time with my wife and our three children, biking, kayaking, swimming at home, or simply relaxing together as a family.
