Throughout my professional career, I have been passionate about providing the best quality surgery and care to my patients, concentrating on providing the best outcomes but always emphasizing safety. I have shared the excitement and joy of these patients as they face the world with more confidence to improve the quality of their lives.Rejuvenating an aging face seems to have just as strong an effect in developing confidence, self-esteem and improved quality of life.
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".
