With mixed feelings, we announce the retirement of renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Jasin from Elite Facial Plastic Surgery in Tampa. Dr. Jasin had been in practice for over 30 years and established a successful facial plastic surgery practice in Tampa. We will miss Dr. Jasin’s guiding hand at the practice but appreciate all he has done to help make the transition smooth for patients and staff alike.
Dr. Jasin has been honored to be associated with several top medical organizations and is board-certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. Over his many years in practice, he has made numerous contributions to medical literature and has trained other surgeons on physicians about the use of dermal fillers, facial contouring, injection techniques and many other subjects. He developed several innovative surgery techniques to allow for less invasive facial surgery and was known for inventing the Simplicity Lift.
While Dr. Jasin was working on his plans for moving into retirement, we were blessed to have Dominic M. Castellano, MD join the team in January of 2012 to work alongside of Dr. Jasin. Already an accomplished surgeon, Dr. Dominic M. Castellano, was able to train with Dr. Jasin on the signature procedures offered in our accredited medical facility. At the same time, Dr. Castellano brought his own talents and unique skills to add even more services to the practice. This also allowed him the time to build relationships with established patients of the practice to make the transition seamless for all.
Dr. Dominic M. Castellano has both the extensive medical qualifications as well as the artistic abilities to provide the most natural results for patients that seek facial plastic surgery. Dr. Dominic Castellano graduated with honors from the University of Florida and then attended the University of South Florida College of Medicine to compete his medical degree. After a year as an intern in general surgery, he finished four additional years as a resident in Otolaryngology (Head & Neck Surgery) at the Eastern Virginia Medical School. Dr. Dominic Castellano finalized his formal education with a year of fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Texas at Houston. Once he obtained his medical degree, Dr. Dominic Castellano received certification from the American Board of Otolaryngology and is Board certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. From a medical standpoint, his resume is impeccable.
Dr. Castellano is also very approachable. This is a real benefit to our patients because it helps Dr. Castellano to understand the goals of the patient and be able to help them realize their aspirations. Dr. Castellano is personable and easy to talk with so consultations are relaxed but informative which is very useful to the surgeon and patient alike to effectively establish the communication that is key for all patients in our practice. Not all patients want to look like they are 20 years old again, some wish to look ten years younger but without any obvious signs of having had a surgery. So a doctor that is available, welcoming and easy to talk to is often a key factor in the satisfaction of procedure post-surgery.
We will miss Dr. Jasin at our office but are sure that he will be finding many ways to enjoy retirement. His wisdom and guidance will always be part of the culture at Elite Facial Plastic Surgery. We are grateful for all his teachings and for all his care in turning over the practice to the skilled hand of Dr. Castellano.
