From Boston to Palm Beach with De Rosa Center for Facial Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics

How do you find a doctor you can really trust?

Easy: just ask us!

Not to brag, but we know a thing or two about local resources…and doctors are no exception!

Enter Dr. Jaimie De Rosa, our resident go-to for all things Facial Plastic Surgery.

Sure; it’s not always a conversation for cocktail hour – which is why it’s all the more important for us to share our insider knowledge with you here.

With a background that boasts a Harvard Medical School degree and two practices along the east coast, her experience speaks for itself.

But since we love a good story, we’re having her tell it herself!

Keep reading to learn more about her practice and what sets it apart.

TSG: Being double board certified with a degree from Harvard Medical School is no joke. How did you get into the field, and what motivates you to continue working in it?

JD: Since I was a young girl, I was interested in becoming a surgeon and also had a keen awareness of beauty and design.  In medical school, I was fascinated by the intricate anatomy of the face and my time as an otolaryngology surgical resident in Boston repairing people’s facial injuries throughout the night solidified my interest in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. 

Fast forward 15 years post-fellowship training in facial plastic surgery, I still have the privilege of improving or correcting patient’s faces in a way that allows them to have improved confidence and to feel great about themselves.  

I have an academic appointment as an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School (not a degree). 

TSG: How did you end up building your two offices between Boston and Palm Beach?

JD: In 2013, I left academic medicine to open my own company on Newbury St. in Boston’s Back Bay.  I now lead a team of practitioners at the DeRosa Center for Facial Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics, including a master aesthetician, a nurse practitioner, and a registered nurse. 

Over time, I noticed that many of my patients split their time between Boston and the Palm Beaches or had close friends in South Florida and were looking for someone whom they could trust to take care of their faces while South.  My husband and I have always enjoyed spending time in Palm Beach, so it made perfect sense to offer my expertise and services to the Palm Beaches in a boutique, individualized way.

TSG: We know you perform a variety of procedures – rhinoplasty, mini facelifts and neck liposuction, to name a few. How many procedures does your office typically perform in a year, and what’s most popular?

JD: The DeRosa Center for Facial Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics does offer a variety of surgeries and non-surgical procedures.  As a double board certified facial plastic surgeon, I perform all of the surgeries, many of which take place right in our AAAASF-surgical center within our Boston office. 

I perform about 300-400 surgeries a year, and the most popular are rhinoplasty (both first-time and revision nose jobs), mini-facelifts, eyelid lifts, and other facial rejuvenation surgeries.

TSG: Do you offer any nonsurgical procedures?

JD: Yes, the DeRosa Center for Facial Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics offers nonsurgical procedures which compliment the surgical services offered.  We believe that taking care of one’s self means having a comprehensive strategy that includes a good home skincare regimen, routine medical grade facial treatments, injectables (including Botox and dermal fillers), non-ablative laser treatments, and radiofrequency non-surgical skin tightening.  

TSG: From your perspective, how has the plastic surgery industry evolved over the past decade?

JD: Over the past decade, the plastic surgery industry has evolved to include more treatments that are based on stimulating one’s own skin, hair, and tissue to rejuvenate.  For example, we utilize PRP (platelet rich plasma) in a variety of treatments, including CIT microneedling, CO2RE laser fractionating resurfacing, and hair restoration.  I really love this type of innovation, as it allows people to reverse the signs of aging without looking like a different person or a caricature of oneself. 

TSG: What advice would you give to someone considering whether or not they should pursue facial plastic surgery?

JD: If someone were considering whether or not they should pursue facial plastic surgery, I first would tell them to be ready to work hard and long hours in order to get the proper training to care for patients properly.  After 4  years of medical school, I spent 6 years training to become a facial plastic surgeon, often working 7 days a week, which I wouldn’t have traded for the world because this is the field that I LOVE.  I think about my patients, surgeries, new treatments, and more on a daily basis.


TSG: Can you share a common misconception about the plastic surgery industry?

JD: One of the biggest misconceptions about the plastic surgery industry is that “anyone can do it”.  Those of us who have dedicated our careers to plastic surgery have spent a decade or more in school and post-graduate training in order to provide the safest and best care to our patients.

TSG: What makes you / your company stand out against the competition?

JD: The DeRosa Center for Facial Plastic Surgery and Facial Aesthetics stands out because our team works tirelessly to assure that every patient feels like he or she is our top priority.

TSG: What do you do in your free time (if you have any)?!

JD: What free time!?!   Actually, I try to carve some time out of every day to do some sort of physical fitness, whether it is riding a bike or taking a Pilates class.  I am also learning to be a single-engine pilot, which has been great fun and hard work!

TSG: How about a fun fact?!

JD: Hmm…I am a 3rd generation physician and have 13 physicians in my extended family (at current count)! 

My dad is an eye surgeon (ophthalmologist), so I grew up talking about surgery and seeing him run his own medical office.
