Dr. Jhonny Salomon wears two hats, one as a renowned plastic surgeon and another as an artist. Fittingly, the two go hand in hand as Dr. Salomon uses his artistic roots to deliver a true masterpiece to each one of his patients. A perfectionist in all senses, Dr. Salomon utilizes his artistic vision combined with his skilled precision to provide impeccable results. Haute Living sat down with the talented surgeon to discuss art, medicine and how the two come together for him.
HL: Can you tell me about how your journey with medicine first began?
JS: I was surrounded by medical and artistic influences while growing up in Haiti. My father was in the medical field while some of my uncles either owned prominent art galleries or created art. When the time came to decide my career path it only seemed appropriate to blend the two major influences I grew up with. Plastic and cosmetic surgery was the perfect choice. With early acceptance into Boston University Medical School, I completed my doctorate and moved onto Brown University for Plastic Surgery training. After completing an extended fellowship in craniofacial surgery from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, I started my Miami practice. Plastic surgery is fascinating because it truly combines medicine with empathy, research and art.
