Dr. Joseph M. Brown MD

Joseph M. Brown, MD, FACS Plastic Surgeon

A Board-Certified Surgeon Serving Tampa, FL

Dr. Brown combines expert training and skill with an exceptional bedside manner. He comes from a family of teachers and construction workers so he had the values of hard work, dedication, and clear communication instilled in him at a young age.

As he saw his mother's battle with breast cancer, he developed a unique insight into the importance of the patient's perspective in all medical relationships. Having seen firsthand how critical quality care and communication are for each patient, Dr. Brown treats everyone who comes to him as if they were his mother, wife, or child.

To prove that he can provide optimal plastic surgery that surpasses patients' expectations, he earned certification from the American Board of Plastic Surgery – the only certifying board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties for the field of plastic surgery. Dr. Brown scored higher than 96% of all applicants who took the rigorous certification exam that same year.

Dr. Brown is amazing! He was the only consult I went too because I loved his work, I was dead set on him doing my breast reduction. Within seconds of meeting him, I knew I made the right choice. Dr. Brown took his time to answer all my questions and made me feel safe with the surgery. Samantha/Kaylee were a big help as well, always answered my texts/questions. The day of the surgery, I met the anesthesiologists and everyone that was going to be in the procedure room which I really appreciated. Im currently 6 weeks out and Im inlove with my results!!!! Thank you so much Dr. Brown for everything! ❤️

Impossible to share how wonderful the offices of Dr. Brown has been. Through the entire process start to finish he and his staff were professional and always available via text or call. I am beyond happy with the results from have a “Mommy Makeover”. Recovery was a breeze, very little pain. The incisions were paper thin, straight and after 6 months completely healed with little scaring. He listened and did exactly what I asked for, a natural look. Look no further Dr. Brown is the best!
