After completing his plastic surgery training, Dr. Soto pursued further specialized fellowship training in advanced techniques for breast enhancement and reconstruction at The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Center for Women’s Health and Medicine in Baltimore. He is Central Florida’s only Plastic Surgeon with these credentials.
