Yaniris R. Avellanet, MD

Cosmetic Surgeon

Looking at Dr. Yaniris R. Avellanet, you can see she cares about beauty; speaking with her, you can hear she knows about it too. Dr. Avellanet understands—and lives—the importance of beauty. Whether learning how to perform the latest procedures or receiving a cosmetic treatment, you could not be in better hands.

Born in Puerto Rico, Dr. Avellanet grew up surrounded by a Latin culture that idealized women with hourglass figures and curves, and that celebrated always looking their best. Being raised by a surgeon father, she was exposed to medicine since she was born. At an early age, she realized helping others through medicine and cosmetic surgery was the path she wanted to take. Inspired by her father’s work, Dr. Avellanet was driven to help women and men achieve their physical goals while improving their self-esteem.

Her experience ranges from a primary care medical specialist in female health to body contouring procedures to speaker, trainer, and consultant on sexuality, anatomy, obstetrics, gynecology and cosmetic surgery. Dr. Avellanet is now expanding her passion and knowledge through Avellanet® Surgical Aesthetics, spreading her expertise to the next generation of surgical aesthetic providers.

The diversity of medical professionals offering new aesthetic procedures is constantly growing and changing. During this ever evolving aesthetic journey, I have been training aesthetic providers on the use of cutting-edge technology to provide their patients with new and possibly life-enhancing treatments. Some are adding new procedures to their already existing aesthetic businesses while others are transitioning to an entirely different medical world.

My experience has led me to identify a real need for concierge comprehensive training targeting the specific needs of these aesthetic professionals and their staff. By imparting my knowledge on emerging surgical skills and techniques in cosmetic contouring procedures, Avellanet® Surgical Aesthetics offers a one-on-one, customized, hands-on experience to aesthetic providers that are committed in offering their patients beautiful results that could improve their self-esteem and quality of life.
