Lynn Martinez Surgery
Martinez told the story of Zoraya Gomez, who went to see a doctor about Botox. She had a well-known filler injected into her, but after a few weeks, it began to fail. Martinez began to develop small bumps and her face swelled, making it difficult for her to persuade any doctor to help her.
She met Dr. Adam Rubinstein, a plastic surgeon who saved her life, according to Zoraya. He operated on her for eight hours to remove industrial-grade silicone from her body. Rubinstein has also helped patients whose surgeries went wrong, such as Marysol Metcalf, who had breast implants. Dr. Rubinstein is from Aventura and is eager to help people with such tragic stories find relief from their suffering.
