Physician assistants: Carolyn Presby, PA-C

Carolyn, a third generation Miami native, graduated from Barry University with a Masters Degree in Clinical Science. She than spent several years developing her clinical skills in Urology. Having cut her teeth within the Baptist Hospital system, she than transitioned into aesthetic medicine.

Since coming to Miami Plastic Surgery, Carolyn has focused on non-invasive aesthetics, including CoolSculpting, Ulthera, injectables, as well as laser technology. She is a believer in preventative medicine and treating small concerns before they become big problems, both aesthetically and medically.

Harnessing this philosophy, she is an advocate for skin resurfacing using non-invasive laser resurfacing, as well as optimum skin care, and encourages all of her patients to use a combination of antioxidants, moisturizers, and sun protection.

Recognizing that not all aesthetic problems can be fixed with one treatment, she prefers to approach her patient’s concerns with multiple modalities to obtain the optimum results.

A mother of two young children, she has developed a passion for skin care that is complimentary for pregnant and lactating women, combining products with diet and exercise.

She is also working closely with the MPS surgeons as they implement the newest and most advanced hair replacement technology, NeoGraft, for both men and women
