Dr. Patino’s medical background is not only aesthetic enhancement, she is also experienced in different burn conditions and treatments, tuberous breast deformity, and breast reconstruction as well.

Adding to her accomplished medical portfolio, Dr. Patino is passionate about the world of academia; she was an Assistant Professor in the Plastic Surgery residency program and participated in numerous academic activities for Venezuelan Plastic Surgery residents. Dr. Patino is a frequently invited speaker at the Venezuelan Plastic Surgery Society annual meetings.

Currently, her practice focuses on all aspects of both aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery, facial cosmetic surgery, and body contouring procedures. Such aesthetic procedures include abdominoplasty, liposuction, and the popular Brazilian butt lift. Her fine attention to detail and refinement manifests through her delicate rhinoplasties and facial procedures. Dr. Patino is committed to providing the best results achieved in the safest manner possible.

When not performing surgery, Dr. Patino is passionate about living a healthy, active lifestyle. Her hobbies include running, swimming, and golfing. Dr. Patino proudly holds a gold and silver medal for Synchronized Swimming.
She was part of the Venezuelan National Synchronized Swim Team from 1989-1997.

Being exposed to this extraordinary experience helped build Dr. Patino to perform successfully under pressure in a highly competitive setting and to work proficiently on a team. Dr. Patino is new to Austin and is thrilled to be in our amazing city with her husband and their beautiful twelve-year-old Shih Tzu.

Her extensive training allowed her to become a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS), a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS), a member of the Texas Medical Association, and a fully licensed physician by the Texas Medical board.
