Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner Elsa Rivero

Elsa Rivero, APRN

Skin and Hair Restoration Specialist

Elsa Rivero knew the world of aesthetics was her calling as soon as she started her first job as a medical technician and began pursuing her nursing degree.

She trained under one of leading physicians in the hair-restoration field for 15 years—and counts several celebrities and high-profile professionals among her clients. Her extensive scope of experience includes follicular-unit extraction (FUE), platelet-rich plasma (PRP), scalp micropigmentation and other therapies that enhance hair-restoration results. Elsa’s passion for aesthetics is driven by her ability to boost patients’ confidence and enhance their self-esteem, whether restoring the full head of hair men often associate with their youth and vitality or giving women the beautiful brows they’ve always dreamed of.

In addition to the broad-spectrum of hair-restoration treatments and procedures, Elsa has expanded her offerings to include injectables, microneedling and energy-based treatments. When she isn’t helping patients love what they see in the mirror and feel better about themselves, the Havana, Cuba native enjoys reading and spending time with her husband and two daughters.

Joanna Babilon

Assistant Patient Advisor

Assistant Patient Advisor Joanna Babilon may be relatively new to the plastic surgery world, but she brings more than five years of exemplary customer care to the practice.

With an unparalleled attention to details, Joanna is responsible for making sure the office is ready for our patients every day—and that they are comfortable during their time with us. Often the first friendly face patients see upon walking through the door, Joanna shows them to their room, adds information to their charts, books future appointments and facilitates check-out.

Joanna also works closely with our surgical coordinator, Melinda, to ensure patients have their pre- and post-operative instructions, as well as appointments and documents for medical-clearance testing prior to surgery. She is also the conduit between our nurse practitioner, Elsa, and patients with questions after surgery and other treatments. Joanna’s favorite part of her job: Connecting with patients over the phone and finally meeting them in person to guide them through every step leading up to (and after) their procedure.

Born and raised in Miami after her family arrived from Peru, Joanna earned her associate degree in Health Services Administration at Miami-Dade College, and she is currently finishing her bachelor’s degree in Health Services Administration at Florida International University (FIU). When she’s not creating the ideal experience for patients (and making them smile), Joanna enjoys spending time with her family and friends, going to the beach and traveling to new places.

Creative Director Milkos D'Sosa

Milkos D’ Sosa

Creative Director

The brilliant mind who oversees the design for all of our digital content and communications, Milkos is responsible for maintaining our signature aesthetic both online and off—and his favorite part of being a member of Dr. Rodríguez-Feliz’s team is learning about plastic surgery and seeing the positive changes in patients’ confidence and self-esteem.

A native of Cuba, Milkos arrived in the United States six years ago after a two-year stint in Ecuador, where he began to study and familiarize himself with the Internet and social media (which was banned in his home country). Once in the U.S., he began working for a non-profit as Community Manager where he was in charge of their social media content.

When he’s not in the office, Milkos indulges his passion for the theater and interior design. A producer, scenographer and designer, he and his company DIKTON have produced more than 20 plays in Miami, and have done many projects to decor houses.
