Dr. Vendemia with Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery (MAS) is a true professional plastic surgeon and approaches his work almost like an art. Dr. V is very respectful, personable and patient, not to mention exceptionally knowledgeable in his field. If you are nervous about choosing a plastic surgeon and moving forward with a breast augmentation procedure (in my case), look no further – Dr. V will perform a spectacular job! Truth be told, I was a tough case with having such an acutely small frame to begin with and requesting a considerable size increase (pushing the higher end of the size range), all while maintaining a natural look. Dr. V nailed it. He perfected the procedure and I wholeheartedly mean this. They don’t look fake at all – they’re remarkable and gorgeous, yet I still feel so natural. Furthermore, I appreciated his truthfulness to any and all questions asked. When presented with the option of size (cc’s and profile type) and location of the implant itself, we went over the pros and cons of each many, many times. Based on extensive experience, he gave his honest opinion, presented options and advised accordingly. These are qualities I especially admire because it demonstrates the following: 1) Dr. V cares about his business and reputation; 2) he wants his patients to be happy, feel good and have the confidence that they’re in good hands; and 3) he clearly desires to achieve a superior end result for his patients. I felt he was giving me just that. I couldn’t be happier with the breast augmentation procedure and experience with Dr. Vendemia at MAS. I LOVE the new (pardon) boobs; they’re simply perfect!
On a separate note, and prior to scheduling a consultation at MAS, my husband and I created a laundry list of questions about the breast augmentation procedure. I’m sure Dr. V taken back by the number of questions, but he handled us with such grace and professionalism. He never rushed us either. Then, we went in for a second round of follow up questions to narrow down our choices to decide on the best surgeon. We took far too much of his time with the question and answer sessions; but, it was clear in the end that Dr. V and his staff would take the best care of me throughout the entire process.
Dr. Vendemia’s Office Manager, Karin, is a delightful woman as well. She is always responsive both via phone and text message. They thoroughly prepared me for the procedure at the surgical center and set expectations as to how I would feel and what to do post-procedure. They checked in later that evening as well to make sure I was okay. Throughout the critical post-op period, Karin was available to answer questions with amazingly quick turnaround time. Talk about a comforting feeling. Like Dr. V, she definitely takes care of the patients too.
Is there such designation as a master breast augmentation surgeon? Well, if there is, hand it over to Dr. V! One last repetitive point, I LOVE my new boobs!
Dear Dr. Vendemia,
I don’t have words to thank you for being so amazing. You are a gifted Dr and your hands are Blessed by God!
It’s been 10 days from the surgery and I already have my confidence back. I feel beautiful again. I can’t thank you enough!
I had a fantastic experience with Dr. Vendemia! At first I wasn’t even aware that there was a way to fix inverted nipples. After doing some research I found Dr. Vendemia’s name and made an appointment. I was really nervous to do it, so I went to talk to him two times before I even committed to doing the procedure. He was really helpful and explained the whole thing and never pressured me to do it. The day of the procedure he and his PA were really nice and they helped to calm me down. I couldn’t believe and how quick, smooth, and basically pain-free it was. Karin was on call the next couple of days for any questions I had, and I went to see Dr. V for several follow ups to make sure I was healing properly. Both he and Karin made me feel relaxed and comfortable through everything. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for this procedure or any other type of cosmetic surgery! I am very pleased with my results and would definitely go to see him again in the future if I needed anything.
Dear Dr. V,
Thank you so much for my amazing new nose and for being such an exceptional surgeon. I feel extremely fortunate to have had you as my doctor and cannot imagine a better result! The rhinoplasty has given me a new confidence and for your artistry and phenomenal skill, I am deeply grateful. I cannot thank you enough for this immeasureable gift you have given me.
Dr. Vendemia gave me a FABULOUS new nose!!! Upon a recommendation from a friend, I scheduled a consultation at MAS. The staff is super friendly and attentive. Dr. V is very patient, and listened attentively to what I was expecting from the surgery. He explained what the procedure would be like and what I could expect from the results, and he delivered! The surgical facility was top notch, with a staff that handled all of my needs safely and with empathy. Dr. V visited with me before and after the surgery, and spoke to my family members to let them know that all was well. I’m so pleased with the results of my rhinoplasty and how quickly I healed. There was so little bruising and discomfort, I was back at work one week later! And the best part is, I still look like me, just an improved version. If you are looking for a talented plastic surgeon and a warm and comforting experience, I highly recommend MAS and Dr. Vendemia. My nose is a work of art!
I just had laser treatment for facial veins, and the results are amazing. I began with a free consultation with Dr. Vendemia, and he was very helpful but applied no pressure to undergo treatment. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. The procedure room has a “zen” quality, which includes a chair with heat and massage! Dr. V. took great care to answer all questions and create clear expectations about what to expect. The process and results were just as he described. He is a perfectionist when it comes to his work–a quality you definitely want in your physician. If you’re considering having a treatment or procedure, I highly recommend seeing Dr. V. I would have done this long ago had I known I would get these results!
i just wanted to let everyone know how amazing my experience w dr. vendemia was. i am so glad i found MAS. the whole staff (esp. alicia and karin) have made me feel so welcome. they were extremely helpful and accommodating.
i am by no means “rich”. i am not a wealthy manhattan girl. i am a REAL 29 year old waitress, living in albany ny. i have been unhappy with the appearance of my thin, chapped lips for quite some time now. ive always dreamed of getting lip injections to fill in the creases, and make them look softer, and more femine. i also wanted it to be so natural, that no one would suspect i had “work” done. i have never had any cosmetic surgery done before and never wanted to risk looking fake… ummm hello, trout pout…
i found photos of dr. vendemias work online, did a ton of research, and decided to schedule a free consultation. i figured i had nothing to lose. when i finally arrived, i knew i made the right decision. dr vendemia took the time to truly listen to my concerns and guide me in the right direction. i explained how i needed a natural look. i also voiced my concerns with bruising and swelling. i knew it was common to bruise and swell, but with the right method, it can be dramatically reduced. he has a steady, yet gentle hand. he took his sweet time, making sure everything was perfect. he would stop, show me the progress, and ask if i wanted more injected. i never thought i would have said “yes”, but he was so careful, that i kept going!
my lips looked great immediately. i walked around manhattan for another 5 hours before i started to swell (normal side effect). the swelling was so minimal- not at all what i was expecting. i never bruised once. everyone told me i looked great, but couldnt place what has changed. i feel much more femine and confident. i cant believe i waited so long to do this. it really was an easy, pleasant experience.
the best part of getting lip injections here is that i have up to one month to use up the rest of the vial i had purchased. no ridiculous hidden fees. i bought it, it’s mine. i decided to go back a few weeks later to use up the rest of the vial, and never once felt weird about it- or like i was putting anyone out. dr v is a really nice man, and he really is amazing. i wouldnt trust anyone else with needles on my face! haha
ps- if anyone wants to get a hold of me for questions, please feel free. im more than happy to help
I would like to say that Dr.Vendemia and staff are wonderful. They are very knowledgeable, patient, and great manners. They made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions. The service I received was amazing, I’m not a wealthy person and I have been saving for my breast augmentation, and Botox, I didn’t feel discriminated or treated any less different because I was working with a budget. Karin is great. She was always a text away… answering all my questions and reassuring me that everything will be fine. My Botox experience was amazing. I didn’t bruise or felt any pain at all. My breast augmentation was done beautiful, even the scare faded away fast. My recovering time was fast. However I felt my implants were big for me. I express to both Dr. Vendemia and Karin, how I felt. They were very supportive and understanding with me. I probably drove them crazy, although everyone told me my breast looked wonderful and natural. They were amazed how it was only 2 months I had done my surgery. After speaking with Dr. Vendemia to discuss this matter.. He wanted to me to be 100 percent happy. So I agreed to go under and get smaller implants. I was very nervous and scare. Dr. Vendemia met me at the Center for specialty care like the first time. He was very nice and accommodating with the revision surgery. I had my surgery done on Monday, and I was back at work on Wednesday. My breast are still swollen and healing but I already like the difference. I have the cleavage and fullness I originally wanted. When I went back on Tuesday after my surgery. Dr. Vendemia changed my bandage and was very caring. I had to give him and Karin a big hug as I was leaving. My overall experience with MAS and staff was great. I would highly recommend Dr. Vendemia for any of his service..
Wow. 3 sessions and the two huge purple clusters of spider veins are gone! GONE!! They looked liked permanent bruises that I hid under long pants, jeans, and tights with skirts. Swimming suit??? Shorts? ha ha – I hadn’t worn them since my twenties.
Dr. Vendemia and Shaye were beyond professional. Everything was explained in full, realistic prognosis given, and the results were spectacular, more than I could have hoped. On top of it, they are intelligent and personable people, so I never felt the void that some robotic doctors make you feel.
Anyone who gives less than 5 stars likely had unrealistic expectations of what spider vein injections can do. Dr. V and Shaye even took care of a couple of the larger veins, but the only way to remove the big ugly veins is a vascular surgeon – also clearly explained. It is also realistic to recognize that genetics and heredity play a huge part in whether one develops veins, and whether after treatment they might return. Such veins are also exacerbated by pregnancies, weight gain and loss, work that requires standing on the job all day, impact from running with poor shoes on hard surfaces, etc.
I am fully expecting that down the road, these may return. Fortunately, Manhattan Aesthetic Surgery will be where I go back!! But for now, I am) looking so forward to summer on Cape Cod, and actually wearing shorts and a bathing suit. Woo Hoo!!!
If you are plagued with spider veins making you feel and look older than you really are, then get yourself to Dr. Vendemia and MAS. Really worth it!!
I’ve had a few cosmetic procedures done at MAS since the fall of 2011 including sclerotherapy, laser vein treatment and juvederm filler. I would second the fact that the staff- Dr. V, Shea and Karin are all superb! As for my treatments well they have been excellent as well. I had one stubborn vein on my nose and Dr. V and his crew were awesome in getting back to me and rescheduling visits until it was treated and seemingly is gone (hopefully for good). I would highly recommend MAS certainly for the procedures I’ve had- juvederm, laser vein treatment as well as sclerotherapy and for others that I plan on trying there!
