He understands that when chosen for the right reasons, plastic surgery can not only improve a patient’s appearance, it can enhance their outlook and self-esteem, and inspire them to continue a healthy lifestyle. Instead of simply focusing on the face, breasts, or body, he takes the time to get to know each patient as a whole person in order to understand their true motivations for considering plastic surgery. His warm and engaging personality makes it easy for patients to open up and share their desires and insecurities. This open dialogue leads to a highly customized treatment plan and a very personalized level of care.

After medical school, Dr. Diaz completed a residency in general surgery at the University of Miami Jackson Memorial Medical Center and a fellowship in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center. His cosmetic surgery focus was honed learning from the top plastic surgeons in New York City before going into practice in 2001.
Following his training, the doctor attained board certification in plastic surgery through the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). The mission of the ABPS is to promote safe, ethical, efficacious plastic surgery to the public by maintaining high standards for the education, examination, certification, and continuous certification of plastic surgeons as specialists and subspecialists.
In order to stay at the forefront of aesthetic medicine, Dr. Diaz maintains memberships in many of the leading industry associations, including the American College of Surgeons, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Working in academia, Dr. Diaz serves as an Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery at the University of Central Florida College of Medicine.
Plastic surgery is a surgical specialty involving the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body. It can be divided into two main categories – reconstructive surgery and cosmetic surgery. A plastic surgeon’s primary responsibility is performing surgical and non-surgical procedures, and they use a variety of reparative and reconstructive techniques to get the job done.
