About My Practice:

How is your approach both high-tech and high-touch?

We are committed to the application of modern technology, but with the careful selection of only those technologies which are truly safer, and which truly improve outcomes.

What sets your practice apart?

At our Orlando plastic surgery and skin-care center, we are proud to offer patients a complete, beautiful experience. From skin care to transformative surgery, we provide a high quality of care in a seamless environment, with a leading medical staff. The end all and be all of plastic surgery is safety and a beautiful outcome and we believe our results speak to our commitment and expertise. I invite prospective patients to visit my online photo gallery.

What's most important to you when treating patients?

Maintaining the integrity of the process, as well as the information my patient uses to make decisions that will affect her safety and satisfaction with the outcome of her aesthetic procedure. 

What new advances have you incorporated into your practice?

I’m excited to offer effective, less invasive treatments such as CoolSculpting®, a procedure that targets and freezes fat cells so the body can break them down over time. The result is a significant reduction of fat in the affected area with no downtime. I also offer NeoGraft® hair restoration, a hair transplant method that doesn’t require scalpel incisions or stitches, reducing the healing time drastically.

About Me:

What is your favorite part of your job?

Having the opportunity to positively effect the lives of my patients through the interpretation of their individual goals, and the judicious application of my education, training and judgment toward their achievement makes my job so gratifying.

What factors make your training in breast surgery advanced?

Following my plastic surgery residency, I served a fellowship in advanced techniques for breast enhancement and reconstruction. Afterward, I stayed on as a faculty member, training other surgeons in the techniques I proudly honed over the years.

I came to Dr. Armando Soto a year ago for my first consultation for breast lift and augmentation. I finally had my procedure done and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Dr.Soto is truly a professional in his area. He explained with detail what I needed to have done to provide me with the best outcome for my body. I am so happy that I let him do what was best for me because it truly looks amazing. He is the best at what he does. His staff is also out of this world. The make you feel relaxed, comfortable, and are all very knowledgeable. I could not have picked a better place to have my procedure done. This office is excellent.

I had my breast augmentation and lift procedure done November 14, 2014. From the first consultation, pre-op surgery and so far 2 post-ops, Dr. Soto and his nurses and staff have been wonderful. I felt so at ease with the doctor and I trusted his work. The results so far are better than I imagined and I cannot wait to see how they progress. I will recommend Dr. Soto to all of my friends and family who are looking for a plastic surgeon. He is truly an artist!

About Me

Mommy Makeover

“To help return this 29-year-old patient’s body to its pre-baby form, we performed a Mommy Makeover consisting of a breast lift (without implants) and a tummy tuck,” says Dr. Soto.

Lower Bodylift

“To eliminate this 42-year-old patient’s excess skin after losing a large amount of weight, we used our lower bodylift techniques and achieved a beautiful outcome,” says Dr. Soto.

Ahead of the Curve

Dr. Soto is very excited about the variations of abdominoplasty he offers his patients. Everything being equal, Dr. Soto asserts that the primary considerations are the looseness in the muscle area and the amount of excess skin. “If you have an excess amount of skin, you will probably be best suited for a traditional tummy tuck. If fat is the main concern, I perform a modified liposuction abdominoplasty, which concentrates on removing excess flab. If the muscle is also loose, I will do a hybrid abdominoplasty and tighten the muscle,” he said. For patients who have lost a significant amount of weight, Dr. Soto offers yet another variation. “After the excess skin is removed, the skin is also tightened on the thighs through the same incision. You see significant improvement in the waistline and anterior thigh area. And recovery is not much longer than that of a traditional abdominoplasty procedure.”

Mommy Makeovers

Combining the right surgeries, unique to the patient's needs, is the key to a successful makeover. With so many different changes that happen over the course of pregnancy and childbearing, patients may have several concerns to address at once. In addition to a breast lift to correct sagging from breast feeding or breast augmentation to restore lost volume, Dr. Soto offers abdominoplasty. "If you have an excess amount of skin, you will probably be best suited for a traditional tummy tuck. If fat is the main concern, I perform a modified liposuction abdominoplasty, which concentrates on removing excess flab. If the muscle is also loose, I will do a hybrid abdominoplasty and tighten the muscle," Dr. Soto says. Furthermore, changes in weight can leave new moms with disproportionate fat distribution. Removing stubborn excess fat in the love handles, hips, buttocks and thighs via liposuction is also an option.

FAQ's

Q. How can I enhance the size and shape of my buttocks?

What our experts say:

As we age, the buttocks tend to droop over time. We cannot only lift the buttocks, but we can also enhance their firm- ness and overall projection with my buttocks augmentation procedures that use either fat grafting or buttock implants to create a rounder, fuller shape. These procedures really take body contouring to the next level.

Q. Can you perform liposuction during my Mommy Makeover?

What our experts say:

Yes. Changes in weight after pregnancy can leave new moms with disproportionate fat distribution. Removing stubborn excess fat in the love handles, hips, buttocks and thighs via liposuction is an option to consider when choosing to undergo a Mommy Makeover. The exact procedures performed will depend on the patient’s goals, but liposuction can have a dramatically positive effect.
