The lure of Miami as a vacation destination and the growing popularity of Brazilian butt lifts draw cosmetic surgery tourists from all over.

“There’s a lot of places down here in Miami where you can go where you’re not necessarily having a board certified plastic surgeon taking care of you,” said local plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Rubinstein. “In some places, you’re not even having a plastic surgeon taking care of you.”
Dr. Tom Fiala, the president of the Florida Society of Plastic Surgeons, offered patients a series of due diligence tips.
