Dr. Vendemia, a former elite athlete turned surgeon, completed his Ivy League training in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at the esteemed Cornell and Columbia Medical Centers in New York City, which are both consistently rated in the Top 5 hospitals in the world. During his time in New York, the doctor worked extensively in the fields of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery at several of the world’s most renowned institutions: New York Presbyterian- Weill Cornell Medical Center, Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Hospital for Special Surgery, Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital, and Lenox Hill Hospital.
The doctor was the first-ever east coast plastic surgeon to be accepted to a highly competitive Fellowship in Aesthetic Surgery at USC in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, with one of the nation’s most prominent plastic surgeons, Dr. W. Grant Stevens. Dr. Vendemia practiced bicoastally in Manhattan and Malibu for many years after completing his fellowship, an experience that afforded him the unique opportunity to mold and balance cutting-edge techniques from the East and West coasts. His colleagues and patients find his work not only beautiful and artistic, but also impressively natural without being overdone.

As the doctor always says, “The body tends to follow the mind. When the mind is calm and positive, the body is strong and beautiful.” We see this as the truth on a daily basis in our office, with his meticulous attention to detail, his natural artistic talent, and his ever-grounding connection to the ocean and nature, creating a vibe that you’ll find to be a pleasantly welcoming change from what you experience elsewhere.
