Dr. Melinda Lacerna

Dr. Melinda Lacerna


Dr. Melinda Lacerna moved to Southwest Florida a year and a half ago after running a very busy Aesthetic surgical practice and Surgery Center in Southern California. She has extensive experience in all aspects of aesthetic plastic surgery, particularly with procedures that are minimally invasive, have minimal downtime, yet offer maximal results.

Dr. Lacerna offers procedures that can turn back the years of time by at least 10 years but with minimal downtime, such as the MACS short scar facelift, or Quicklift face and necklift. Dr. Lacerna also performs facial rejuvenation, by combining fat transfers to the cheeks, tear troughs and nasolabial creases to volumize the midface. Dr. Lacerna takes her facelift results further by performing the latest techniques for Laser skin resurfacing and chemical peels. Dr. Lacerna has extensive experience in Laser Body Sculpture using the Palomar SLIM Lipo. She also has expertise in Mommy Makeovers (combining breast augmentation or lift procedures with abdominal contouring with a tummy tuck or liposuction) and with gluteal augmentations, having performed many Brazilian Butt lifts and Gluteal Augmentations with implants.

Dr. Lacerna is double Board Certified in Plastic Surgery and in General Surgery. She is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). She is also an accomplished and published artist as an oil painter. Her work was featured on the cover of a national medical journal for Kaiser Permanente. She is a self proclaimed foodie and wine connoisseur, and loves to travel and scuba dive. She lives in Bradenton with her husband, Dr. Brian Kimbrell, MD, FACS, the Trauma Medical Director for Blake Medical Center, and her son Caden.
