TANYA PATRON, PA-C

Educator & Founder

Tanya's passion for delivering the latest advances in aesthetic non-surgical procedures and treatments is what sets her apart. Holding a Master's degree in Clinical Medical Sciences from Barry University, Tanya has been injecting since 2011 and specializes in Facial Contouring & Non Surgical Nose Job. She not only treats her patients but educates them on every available preventative treatment to ensure their overall well-being.

 

Tanya's innovative approach to patient care is evident in the way she revolutionized the patient experience through technology, memberships, and an innovative office design at her injectable based Medical Aesthetic Center, Selfie Aesthetic, in South Miami - all in 2020.

 

Tanya's expertise is recognized across the industry, as she serves as an educator and trainer for Allergan, Galderma, and Revance Aesthetics, while also being a faculty member of the annual Aesthetic Extender Symposium. Her commitment to advancing injectables led her to develop Liftie Aspirator™, an accessory attachment for fillers that makes injectables safer for patients and more comfortable for injectors worldwide.

From her early years at Barry University's Physician Assistant program, where she helped launch the program's first Plastic Surgery rotation, to her work at Miami Plastic Surgery - where she continued to further her craft and love for cosmetic injectables for 12 years - Tanya has always prioritized improving the patient experience through education, innovation, and technology.
