Patient Testimonials:


A Harvard alum and graduate from the Duke University School of Medicine, Dr. Jan Karlin has established himself as a leading Orlando cosmetic surgeon with more than 20 years of experience in his field. The last five of those years have been spent as the Medical Director of Nova Cosmetic Center in Orlando, a first class facility where Dr. Karlin's considerable experience is complemented by the very best technology and well trained supporting staff.

For anyone considering undergoing cosmetic surgery in Orlando, Dr. Karlin offers expertise in many types of surgical procedures, including Facelift and Facial Implant surgeries, Liposuction, Tummy Tuck (Abdominoplasty), and the nation's most popular form of cosmetic surgery, Breast Augmentation. Orlando Breast Augmentation patients flock to Dr. Karlin for his skill at using the popular belly button incision for the insertion of the implants. This is a technique most Orlando cosmetic and plastic surgeons do not offer. Dr. Karlin offers cosmetic surgery services to Doctor Phillips, Kissimmee, and Windermere.

Dr. Karlin also specializes in treatments for spider vein and varicose vein removal in Orlando, and recently helped start the Vein Centers of America. It's another example of this Orlando cosmetic surgeon's devotion to serving his patients and staying abreast of all the latest developments in the various areas of cosmetic enhancement.
