DR. ROBERT REY

One of the most renowned doctors in the world

Dr. Robert Rey understands that many patients undergo cosmetic surgery to improve or enhance their appearance, and he knows that patients want scars to be as unnoticeable as possible. Because of this, he specializes in plastic surgery procedures that leave minimal visible scarring. 

His fellowship at Harvard Medical School’s Beth Israel Deaconess hospital introduced him to minimal-scar surgical techniques like endoscopy, fiber optics, and lasers. He has since aided in the development of the transumbilical breast augmentation procedure. Performed by just a handful of surgeons, this procedure provides women the augmentation they desire with no visible scarring. Dr. Rey is also known for the low and smaller incision tummy tucks as well as the Brazilian Butt Lift, where fat is suctioned from areas such as the abdomen and thighs and then transferred to the buttocks. Silicone implants can also be placed through a tummy tuck incision, leaving no scars on the breasts.
