NEW YORK, NY – March 13, 2017 — WE tv today announced the ‘uncensored’ new docuseries “Dr. Miami” will premiere Friday, March 31 at 10 PM ET/PT. This one-hour, six-episode series follows the eccentric and larger-than-life Dr. Michael Salzhauer; aka “Dr. Miami,” one of Miami’s top plastic surgeons and a social media pioneer.

Dr. Miami, who has earned himself the nickname “the booty whisperer,” has attracted millions of followers from all over the world by sharing his uncensored and sometimes unconventional plastic surgery procedures. His patients or “beauty warriors,” as he adoringly refers to them, get everything from breast augmentations and nose jobs to Brazilian butt lifts and tummy tucks live on social media in front of millions of viewers! The insane personal antics and groundbreaking surgery sharing scored him a Shorty Award nomination for the Snapchatter of the Year in 2016.

The original WE tv series captures the fast-paced, humorous behind-the-scenes look at Dr. Miami and his staff, as they snip, tuck, nip AND SNAP their way through the day.  As the doctor’s fame and popularity is on the rise, so are the egos and tensions within his team; as everyone is hungry for exposure. The doctor’s unique, jester-like approach is not only fun and entertaining, it also puts the “beauty warriors” at ease as they prepare to go under his knife. Each episode features two surgeries with unprecedented access from consultation to reveal, like you’ve never seen before. Between needy patients, terrified parents, wild antics and inter-office battles, Dr. Miami-land is a never-ending soap opera.

In the first episode, social media music video superstar Adam Barta, best known for his collaborations with reality stars such as Honey Booboo and The Octomom, is on the quest for the perfect nose and sculpted chin. When his chin implant goes missing, there’s panic in the operating room! Dr. Miami’s next “beauty warrior” wannabe, Ashley, wants to be a MILF! She brings along her best friend and her baby daddy, Jovan, who’s against her Mommy Makeover. And her reveal shocks even the doctor. himself! Tune in Friday, March 31st 10pm ET/PT to go behind the scenes as Dr. Miami and his team try to cut through the drama to make his “beauty warriors’” plastic surgery dreams come true!
