The Rise of the Social Media Celebrity Doctor
Before he exploded on social media, Dr. Miami was a normal person. He started his own practice in 2003. Brazilian butt lifting wasn’t around, much less social media. He performed surgeries during the day and then went home to his wife and growing family. Then, around 2014, his social media started gaining traction. He now has almost 160,000 followers on Instagram, more than 230,000 on TikTok and many more Snapchat viewers. His kids may see him as an embarrassing dad, but a lot of people diligently watch the videos of his procedures. He has celebrity patients and has even been mentioned in a few rap songs.
