Originally from Miami, Dr. Jennel Carreras-Montgomery left Florida to pursue her undergraduate degree at Boston College and then returned to University of Florida for her medical degree. She completed a general surgery residency in Dallas, TX and continued on to complete a Plastic Surgery residency in Detroit, MI, while attaining her General Surgery board certification. After eight years of surgical training, Dr. Carreras-Montgomery decided to hone and perfect her skills further. She trained under one of the highest ranked Plastic Surgeons in New York City for her Aesthetic Surgery fellowship. During that year she learned the cutting-edge techniques in Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery, with the newest technology on the market.
She and her husband, who is an oral surgeon, decided to move back to Florida to be closer to family. Dr. Carreras- Montgomery, now with Ocala Plastic Surgery, has an office in Ocala as well as The Villages. “My primary goal is to bring all Plastic Surgery options, surgical and nonsurgical, to the people of Central Florida. There is no reason for anyone to have to travel outside of this area to have any Plastic Surgery procedure,” says Dr. Carreras- Montgomery.
Her favorite part of her job is the creativity. “There’s not one patient who comes in who is the same as any previous patient. Sometimes you have to think outside the box, bring together all your skills and techniques, and develop a surgical plan,” she says. “It’s just being able to be creative and really deliver the results the patient wants.”
