As the daughter of a prominent general surgeon, Dr. Keusch knew early on that she wanted to become a surgeon. From her childhood in Havana, Cuba to some of the most prestigious schools in the nation, Dr. Cristina Keusch has lived her dream and become a renowned, board certified plastic surgeon. She attended medical school at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, and then went on to become Chief Resident of General Surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York. Her plastic surgery residency and fellowship was completed at Harvard in Boston. In 1990, Dr. Keusch established her practice at the Boca Raton Plastic Surgery Center. This fall marks her 30th year!

What defines your practice?

We are a 100% cosmetic surgery practice with a focus on breast surgery, body contouring including abdominoplasty and liposuction, and facial surgery and rejuvenation including eye lift, face lift and laser resurfacing. Non-surgical services including Botox, fillers, lasers and skin care are available through our full time nurse practitioner and full time aesthetician. We are able to provide comprehensive services to our patients to achieve excellent results.

What is the Vivace and what results can patients expect?

Vivace is our newest, most exciting non-surgical technology for face and neck tightening and texture improvement. The microneedling and radio frequency procedure is pain free and requires no downtime. It is applicable to the whole body! It has become our most popular procedure, especially for arms and knees that can become visibly crepe-like after menopause and due to sun damage.

How is “Bra Fat” treated?

The bulging fat under the bra line can be treated with SmartLipo. If skin laxity is severe, I can trim and excise that roll of skin. The scar lies just inside the bra. It’s a very acceptable, forgiving scar and a worthy trade-off when the excess is severe. Of course, diet and exercise are always very important to optimize results.
