Age 68
C. Roberto Palma, MD is a graduate of Harvard Medical School and did his residency in Plastic Surgery at Stanford University. He has been in private practice in Ft. Lauderdale since 1981. He has been selected by his peers for 15 years in a row to be included in Castle Connolly's List of "America's Top Doctors", as well as the Consumer's Research Council of America "Guide to America's Top Surgeons". In addition to his surgical skills and experience, Dr. Palma is considered an expert in Cosmetic Medicine or non-surgical procedures to make patients look younger. He is one of the most experienced users of Paralyzing agents such as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin as well as Filler/Volumizers such as Restylane, Perlane, Juvaderm, Radiesse, Sculptra, Voluma and other FDA approved products. Over the years, Dr. Palma's practice has focused more and more on Aesthetic (Cosmetic) Surgery. In the last decade he introduced into his practice the SimpleLIFT, an innovative technique of face/neck lifting which evolved over his many years of experience in the field. In the last couple years he has added what he calls "Butterfly Suspension" to the SimpleLIFT, a technique of tightening the deeper structures of the cheeks and neck, such as muscles and fascia, which results in finer scars as well as more natural-looking and more long-lasting results. The procedure, usually performed under local anesthesia, offers dramatic results with significantly reduced cost and "downtime".

Dr. Palma is the best! He's very knowledgable. I like that he takes the time to go over any concerns and explain things. And his staff is also very helpful and friendly.

After lots of research, I chose Doctor Palma for a procedure. It turned out to be one of the very best decisions of my life. My results were amazing. I look and feel 15 years younger. My goal was to tighten some loose neck skin, but the procedure also greatly improved the look of my face and eliminated some wrinkling in the area near my ears. He also added some volume and definition to my lips, which greatly enhanced my appearance. He is a detail-oriented artist and perfectionist.

I had pencil line lips. I consulted Dr. Palma for lip rejuvenation. He contoured my lips to the shape of my face. Sheer PERFECTION. I could not even imagine this level of excellence. For the first time in my life, I felt beautiful! Your best day will be the day you make an appointment with Dr. Palma. The man is a Master in his field!
