Dr. Ortega has practiced in the South Florida area for over twenty years. He has been a major influence in the local plastic surgery scene since he returned here in the early 90's, having completed his plastic surgery training in Galveston Texas University of Texas Medical Branch.
He is double board certified in Plastic Surgery and General Surgery although he has dedicated his time practicing medicine to the reconstructive and aesthetic surgical arts. Having focused his efforts in the cosmetic field, he has pioneered or helped advance the modern techniques of plastic surgery using his unique perspective of the human form, as he is also an accomplished painter.
Of particular note, Dr. Ortega has been a leader in the development of Fat grafting for both cosmetic enhancements (facial, hand, Buttock, calf, Breast, female external genitalia), as well as for the correction of acquired/congenital deformities (mastectomy/Poland Syndrome).
