Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jose Rodríguez-Feliz represents the next generation of surgical and non-surgical eyelids, face and body aesthetics. Catering to both local and international clientele at his state-of-the-art boutique practice and accredited surgical facility in Coral Gables, Florida, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz is one of the few top-tier plastic surgeons who opt to pursue further aesthetic-surgery training after their residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery. Committed to mastering the most advanced techniques, he performed an elective fellowship in oculoplastic and aesthetic surgery under the tutelage of world-renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Codner.
This additional training afforded Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz the opportunity to embrace and utilize his artistic eye while perfecting his aesthetic eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) skills. He also has extensive experience performing complex revisional eyelid surgery, droopy eyelid (ptosis) surgery, facial plastic surgery (face- and neck lifts, nose surgery, ear surgery), non-surgical facial rejuvenation (Botox®/Dysport®, injectable fillers and skincare) and aesthetic breast surgery.
Originally from Puerto Rico, Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz is fluent in English and Spanish. When he’s not indulging his passion for plastic surgery, he enjoys the natural beauty of Miami with his wife and three young children, and often travels back home to Puerto Rico to relax with family and friends.
Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz’s ongoing research and academic work gives him a distinct advantage when performing surgery. An unparalleled expert in his field, he authored a chapter in the oculoplastic surgery textbook, Problems in Periorbital Surgery: A Repair Manual, in addition to several published articles in the most prestigious peer-reviewed plastic surgery journals, including Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the Journal of Craniofacial Surgery. He was also awarded the 2015 Best Paper Award by Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
