When one thinks Florida’s Space Coast, there are two initial breeds of thought. To recognize both, all one has to do is consider the area’s nickname. For decades now, the Kennedy Space Center has been a monumental player in the area’s economy due to job creation and tourism. The second aspect that comes to mind is, naturally, its white, sandy beaches along the Indian River Lagoon, whose beauty has inspired the vision of Florida many immediately associate with the Sunshine State. But there is another, overlooked industry that is booming: plastic surgery.

Many on the hunt for a quality breast augmentation or tummy tuck in Florida are likely to tack “Miami” or even “Orlando” on to their search, and not wrongfully so. The media perpetuates these areas’ glamour and cosmetic surgery industry through television specials and articles, but when looking for a board-certified plastic surgeon whose work will go above and beyond client expectations, it’s a man in the little town of Melbourne, Florida that they should look to. Among Melbourne plastic surgeons, Dr. Castellon shines.

Dr. Mauricio Castellon is that man. The good doctor is the face of plastic surgery in Melbourne, but is widely recognized as one of the best across the entirety of Central Florida. When clients learn about Dr. Castellon and his practice, Castellon Plastic Surgery Center, they travel far and wide to be privy to his expertise, and his compassionate, understanding demeanor that instills a feeling of welcome and safety. He stays familiar with the Melbourne area due to his affiliations with a number of hospitals: Holmes Regional Medical Center, Wuesthoff Hospital, Surgical Care Affiliates Melbourne Surgery Center, Melbourne Same-Day Surgery Center, and Sheridan Surgery Center.

From the beginning, Dr. Castellon’s goal was to provide the most qualified, quality service he could, starting with his days as a student. His undergraduate study was at one of Florida’s top schools, the University of Florida, but as he continued his schooling, he pushed himself further and further. His general, plastic, and reconstructive surgery training was done at one of the most well-respected plastic surgery programs in the United States: the Albany Medical Center in New York. His doctorate was achieved at the Ponce School of Medicine.

But to Dr. Castellon, his years of rigorous schooling wasn’t enough. Over the course of his years of practice, he was invited to joined a wide array of prestigious societies for plastic surgery. He is a fellow with the American College of Surgeons. He serves as the sector Chair of plastic surgery for the Holmes Regional Medical Center in his place of practice, Melbourne. He is an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Medical Association.

His induction into the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, however, separates him from a vast number of his cohorts. This society of innovative plastic surgeons is the most respected society of cosmetic surgery not just in the United States, as the name implies, but across the entire world. Members of this society pave the way in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery, and can be trusted for their skills, and their dedication to their craft. Perhaps it is this devotion that landed him the position of President of the Florida Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Dr. Castellon’s accolades speak for themselves, but he doesn’t need them to. His clients will gladly share his skills, his professionalism, and his kindness. His countless plastic surgery options—from breast reduction, to CoolSculpting, to rhinoplasty—have left thousands of clients content and confident in their bodies.

“Dr. Castellon is an amazing surgeon,” one client, Leah Elliott says, “He listens intently and develops a plan with clear realistic expectations. He has a wonderful caring nature about him. He has performed two major surgeries on me over the course of 10 years. I moved from Brevard County over a year ago. I returned to him two months ago for my most recent procedure (traveling a good distance) as I know I am in the best hands. His entire office staff is amazing and caring.”

For those who, perhaps, are not in need of a major procedure, Dr. Castellon also offers a number of MedSpa services, such as fillers and facials that address wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, and more. Many of these services are performed by Dr. Castellon’s stellar staff, whose expertise help clients look and feel amazing with no downtime.

The effectiveness of these procedures can be credited in part to the doctor’s dedication to providing clients with the latest and greatest the world of medical technology has to offer. The clinic is constantly updating their procedures to ensure that clients receive treatment and results that are worth the cost. One of their latest changes comes in the form of a new, advanced laser for hair removal and leg vascular skin conditions. The treatment produces more efficient results than a traditional laser.

Now, when one considers the Space Coast, something new should come to mind: quality plastic surgery. That quality leads Dr. Castellon’s business to thrive. His skilled hands and accommodating bedside manner bring clients back for any following procedure. His friendly staff make the experience fantastic all around. Surgery can be scary. With this doctor, it doesn’t have to be.
