After graduating with honors from the University of Miami's medical school in 1975, Dr. Michael Stephen Norris pursued a specialty in plastic surgery to help his patients improve their looks. Before treatments he gets to know the individual goals of the patient and thoroughly explains their options to them—along with the risks and benefits involved. By keeping his patients informed and empowered, Dr. Norris has gained a loyal following of repeat customers who trust him with their every unwanted wrinkle, bulge, or third ear.

The massage maven at Bella Derma Face and Body manipulates clients’ muscles to ease tension and promote overall well-being.
