Roger T. Brill, MD, FACS

Gainesville, FL – Roger T. Brill, MD, FACS, is being recognized by Continental Who’s Who as a Top Plastic Surgeon in the field of Medicine as the Owner and a Plastic Surgeon at MediSpa & Plastic Surgery Center. Located at 6716 North West 11th Place, Suite 100, The Brill MediSpa & Plastic Surgery Center has nonsurgical Medi Spa treatments as well as cosmetic surgery when needed and may be combined for best results. Renowned in North Florida, this center has been open for over thirty years and uses the most innovative technology. Patients have raved about their results and that Dr. Brill is outstanding, trust worthy, very competent, and knowledgeable.

The inspiration behind Brill Medi Spa & Plastic Surgery Center was founded during Dr. Brill’s third-year of med school when he met Dr. Ralph Millard, Head of Plastic Surgery at the University of Miami. Upon witnessing his presentations, which reminded Dr. Brill of a “CSI mystery where complex deformities were solved in order to make a person whole”, he was drawn to the suspense-filled world of plastic surgery. “It takes a lot of inspiration and research to put a ‘Humpty Dumpty’ together again,” he said.

Dr. Brill is a Gainesville native, having been born at Alachua General Hospital. Being the son of a medical officer in the Navy, he has lived in Michigan, Virginia and California. He came back to Gainesville in his teenage years, where he graduated from Gainesville High School before attending the University of Florida. “Go Gators!” After graduating at the University of Florida, he went on to complete his General Surgery Residency and Plastic Surgery Residency at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He spent 15 years going through school for all of his medical training, but he always had his heart set on coming back here to Gainesville to live and practice.

When Dr. Brill began his career in plastic surgery in Gainesville some 30 years ago, much of his practice involved reconstruction of deformities from accidents, illness or injury and birth defects. Although cosmetic surgery was once just one aspect of his practice, it has now become the largest part. Throughout the years, cosmetic surgery has changed, just as reconstruction has. When it comes to cosmetic body contouring and facial antiaging, advanced methods are necessary, which include skin anti-aging treatments and increasing facial volume in the aging face. Therefore, his practice is a Medi Spa and Surgery Center as all treatments are no longer primarily surgical. Also, a major part of treatments is total body contouring, which include breast surgery and tummy tucks, and lipoplasty for arms, back, thighs, and ankles can be treated. Dr. Brill’s philosophy is that he works for his patients; in other words, they are the boss. He enjoys getting to know his patients and, many times, their families and he enjoys helping them. Everyone is different and it is important to find out what they want or desire and to be able to deliver that by giving them what they want. He treats ALL areas of the body, from head to the toe, and ALL ages. Basically, he treats the skin and its contents.

His practice provides many services, both surgical and non-surgical Medi Spa treatments and plastic surgery. This includes every type of skin rejuvenation reducing or eliminating ‘lines’ and skin laxity. They also offer fibroblast peels, laser treatments, and different types of micro needling. Dr. Brill Medi Spa and Plastic Surgery Center has the latest treatments in this area, including:

•Sculpture (better than cool sculpting)- no surgery and an outpatient treatment
•BodyTite or FaceTite (reduces skin laxity and decreases surface area by 30-35% on all body parts of the body)- may be combined with tummy tuck and facelifts.
•Vitalia (improves vaginal health by stimulating normal vaginal lining, without estrogen and to correct urinary incontinence) – non surgical and no pain
•IPL treatment for facial pigmentation spots and melasma, tattoo removal, etc.

For some of their treatments, they are the only provider in the area.

Outside of his work, Dr. Brill enjoys getting involved in serving his community. He has been a member at the Gainesville Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club of Gainesville for over 30 years. He enjoys participating in service to the community, state and nation. He is a performing musician in the Gainesville Community Band for over 25 years and a past President. He also has six children and now four grandchildren, whom are always migrating back home for visits and large family holidays.

What he loves most about this career is how much fun we have every day. He truly enjoys his patients. In fact, his staff often has trouble getting him away from them during their visits as we may be having very funny, entertaining conversations! He is most inspired by the “Wow!” factor from patients when he can achieve for them even better than they expected. Our procedures improve self-esteem because everyone wants to look and feel their best and ‘put their best foot forward’—it’s the American lifestyle.
