Dermatologist Dr. Deborah Longwill joins Visiting Specialists

The Medical Center welcomes new Visiting Specialist Dr. Deborah Longwill, a dermatologist who has served the South Florida community for more than 25 years and has spearheaded several advances in her field.

Dr. Longwill, who will start seeing patients Jan. 12, chooses to focus on her patients as a whole, promoting the condition of overall wellness and taking into account their needs and concerns. She was one of the first dermatologists in south Florida to spearhead the utilization of laser technologies for skin rejuvenation and to perform tumescent liposuction therapy, a technique that utilizes the injection of special fluids under the skin that causes the fat to swell, making it much easier to remove. There is very little blood loss with this technique and, therefore, minimal bruising. Dr. Longwill is renowned for her injection techniques and has received media coverage for her utilization of  safe and modern methods in aesthetic medicine.

Dr. Longwill was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Wilmington, Delaware. She graduated from George Washington University in Washington, D.C., with a Bachelor's of Arts degree and went on to earn her Medical Degree from Southeastern University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine. She achieved her board certification in 1992.
Dr. Longwill is very active in her community and provides mentoring to future physicians and health professionals, giving lectures on sun protection and skin care at local schools and the Chai Lifeline women’s wellness group.

On a personal level, Dr. Longwill is a devoted wife of 33 years, mother of four, and grandmother of three. In her time away from her practice she enjoys the outdoors, photography, yoga, cooking and celebrating with friends and family.
