Skills and Specialties
While Dr. Rosenbaum is known for his breast reconstruction expertise, he is also highly sought after for cosmetic surgery associated with the face, breast, body, and skin. He performs breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction surgery, as well as abdominoplasty surgery, liposuction, and the mommy makeover procedures. For patients desiring overall body contouring, Dr. Rosenbaum uses liposuction and skin tightening to enhance and contour the breasts, arms, tummy, and thighs. He uses advanced surgical techniques to perform facelift and eyelid surgery, as well as brow lifts and fat transfers to add volume where it has been depleted. Whether performed as stand-alone treatments or used to accompany a surgery, Dr. Rosenbaum offers a number of nonsurgical options to help diminish and soften the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines. BOTOX, Juvederm, Restylane, and Voluma are specific injectables he uses to create younger looking, gorgeous outcomes.
The reconstructive procedures referred to as DIEP and SGAP flap surgeries are among Dr. Rosenbaum’s most specialized procedures. These advanced techniques involve the use of a woman’s abdominal or upper buttock/hip skin and fat to create a natural looking and feeling breast. Dr. Rosenbaum introduced these surgical techniques to the South Florida area after completing his fellowship at Louisiana State University, where the concepts where developed. Now Chief of Plastic Surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Miami Beach, FL., his education has subsequently allowed Dr. Rosenbaum to draw on a wealth of knowledge to provide the most suitable option available to a patient seeking top-quality reconstructive breast surgery.

"Excelente cirujano se los recomiendo grasias doctor por su entrega y dedicación mil grasias"
"I don't normally write reviews, but felt compelled to recommend Dr. Rosenbaum after a flawless breast reduction experience. He and his staff (esp. Yoly) surpassed my expectations in every possible way. I was extremely nervous about the surgery, but was in good hands as Dr. Rosenbaum is detail-oriented and focused on successful, realistic outcomes. Guess what? It shows in his work. One of Miami's top surgeons for post-mastectomy breast reconstruction, he's highly experienced in all aspects/challenges of breast surgery. Dr. Rosenbaum also answered my (many!) questions both before and after surgery with kindness, patience, and substantial good humor. The end result: I had a breast reduction with zero complications, healed wonderfully, and for the first time in my life, feel comfortable in my own body. Not to mention the relief from constant upper body and neck pain. After surgery, I asked myself why I had waited so long for this gift to myself. This has truly been a life changing experience. Thank You Dr. Rosenbaum!"
"The first time I met the doctor was on the recommendation of my GP who suggested to visit Dr. Gary Rosembaum because I needed to have my breast implants changed; on that first occasion I had the prosthesis replaced, the surgery was a total success and recovery very fast!On the following visits, I told the doctor that I wanted to have my eyelids lifted, he told me that this type of surgery is very simple, that it is done in his office that it takes only 40 minutes with a speedy recovery. From that moment I didn’t hesitate for a moment to do the surgery and I cannot be happier!3 months have passed since the blepharoplasty as of today I don't have any scars and the eyes are more open.Thank you Doctor Rosembaum and thanks to your assistant Yoly since you really make me feel super comfortable and safe.I truly recommend Dr Gary Rosembaum for all your plastic surgery needs."
"Super attentive doctor! Explained every part of the surgery and recovery time. Amazing results as promised. The staff is super friendly and office is super clean. Would recommend to anyone! "
"I came to Dr. Rosenbaum after a procedure I had done somewhere else went terribly wrong. After we had a consultation he and and I decided my only chance to correct the problem was a full tummy tuck. I was horrified! I would never have done anything invasive because I am so fearful but unfortunately it was the only choice. He was INCREDIBLE! He constantly reassured me as we got closer to the surgery and made me feel calm. He was very confident about the procedure all the time. Nora, his office manager was equally helpful and took care of every aspect of preparation leading up to the surgery and after. She always took my calls and post surgery she reassured me through my first few days home. Dr. Rosenbaum did an amazing job fixing the original problem. I get compliments all the time on what a clean scar I have from others who have had the same procedure elsewhere. I am 4 months out now and getting better each day. He is a perfectionist at his work and I do HIGHLY recommend him to anyone"
