Jaime Flores, MD | Aesthetic & Reconstructive Surgeons - Miami Plastic Surgeon

About Dr. Jaime Flores

Dr. Jaime Flores was a full time Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and is an American Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. His practice is dedicated to state-of-the-art reconstruction of the breast, head and neck, as well as aesthetic surgery.

Dr. Flores’ main focus is on microvascular reconstructive breast surgery which includes the following procedures: the DIEP flap, the SGAP flap and the IGAP flap. He also performs other minimally invasive breast procedures such as breast augmentations, insertion of tissue expanders, breast reductions and breast lifts. He spent several post graduate years at Johns Hopkins Hospital teaching young residents these specific techniques and how to truly master them.

He refined the SGAP procedure and helped Johns Hopkins to establish itself as one of two places in the world offering bilateral SGAP surgery for breast reconstruction.  In the last two years, he has developed an alternative flap that he created and pioneered while at Johns Hopkins. The LSGAP, or “Flores flap,” as it is often referred to, harvests tissue from the love handle area--without any muscle dissection or distortion-- to the gluteal region. All of these microvascular flap techniques provide patients with additional options for a natural aesthetic result.

In addition, Dr. Flores, along with select colleagues, founded The Healing Hands Foundation (THHF). THHF is a non-profit foundation dedicated to delivering surgical care to underprivileged people all over the world. Every year, he attends four to five international medical missions where he performs surgeries for cleft lips, cleft palates, burn scars, and other congenital deformities. He has been involved in missionary work since his college years and continues to devote his life and career to healing those in impoverished communities.

His vision is to perform surgeries around the globe, and to provide teaching seminars to medical professionals who can then perform these surgeries in their own local cities. He encourages students from high school to all professional levels to volunteer. He believes this experience will enrich their lives and foster their future careers.

Dr. Flores grew up several blocks away from Johns Hopkins and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology while playing football for the Maryland Terrapins from 1989-1993. He graduated from the University of Maryland Medical School and completed residencies in both Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology.

His dedication to surgery and his commitment to excellence is evident every day, both to his patients here and abroad. Dr. Flores is a perfectionist, a humanitarian, and a humble surgeon. He strives to deliver excellent care here in the United States and throughout the world.

Dr. Jaime Flores is now committed to providing patients in the southern corridor of the United States with these advanced techniques, both in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, while minimizing scarring and maximizing the results and satisfaction for his patients.
