As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Rolando Morales considers it a rewarding privilege to enhance each person’s unique beauty through a career that allows him to combine his love of art and medicine.
For Morales, the desire to become a plastic surgeon was inspired by his unique upbringing, growing up in a home with a mother who was a nurse and his father, who worked as a medical sculptor for 40 years at the esteemed Shriners Burn Institute in Galveston. As one of the nation’s few experts in this field, his father created customized silicone replacements for noses, ears, and other anatomical parts—designed to blend seamlessly and naturally with the body—for individuals disfigured by burn injuries and cancer.
Dr. Morales credits his mother for instilling within him a compassion for helping others, an ambition to strive for excellence in every pursuit, and the determination to persevere.

This gave him the opportunity to work with plastic surgeons who–recognizing his talent, sharp mind, and skillful ability to work with patients–encouraged him to consider pursuing a career in their medical specialty.
