More about Dr. Luis Vinas


 Dr. Luis Vinas, MD is a Board-certified plastic surgeon based out of Florida's Palm Beach region. He owns L.A. Vinas M.D. Plastic Surgery, Med Spa, and Skin Care Center in West Palm Beach and a second location in Stuart, Florida. He specializes in a diverse array of cosmetic, aesthetic, and reconstructive procedures, including facelifts, breast augmentation, tummy tucks, liposuction, body contouring, male muscle augmentation, and single-stage breast reconstruction, as well as a variety of other surgical and non-surgical forms of treatment. He has earned a reputation over the years for his innovative techniques in minimally invasive operations as well as his high standard of care.

Dr. Vinas wants his patients to have the reassurance of knowing that they are in skilled, capable hands. He also wants them to know that he is a listener, someone who cares about what they have to say. There's nothing more important in the field of cosmetics. He can't hand his patients a menu, nod his head, and pretend to understand. Every procedure he performs has to be tailored to the needs of the individual, their unique biology, their medical conditions, and their aesthetic goals. That is how he approaches treatment, by addressing the individual. The result is fewer risks, fewer complications, and better service overall.

Dr. Luis Vinas’s Journey

Dr. Vinas began his academic career in Puerto Rico, where he attended medical school at the Universidad Central del Caribe, located in Bayamon. After graduating, he migrated to the continental United States to serve in a 3-year general surgery residency at the  Nassau County Medical Center in East Meadow, New York. He finished his residency in 1987 and went on to complete a second residency at the Nassau County Medical Center in plastic surgery. This was while he was serving in a burn care fellowship at the same facility. He has since spent the last 23 years as a practicing surgeon.

As far as Dr. Vinas is concerned, the learning never stops. When he reached the height of academia, unable to learn from any textbook, he blazed his own trail. On top of attending the conferences requisite to maintain his Board-certification, he engaged in an extensive research campaign, driven by the hunt for knowledge and the desire to improve conditions in his field. He's published numerous papers in major journals and several texts of his own, including articles on xenografting, breast reconstruction, and breast reduction. He's also been recognized multiple times by the media, and he's received several accolades for his expert knowledge, skill, and prowess.
