Plastic Surgeon Dr. Paul E. Mondolfi is a diplomat of both the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery, a distinction shared by a very select group of plastic surgeons. He is a member of the American College of Surgeons; the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS); and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
Dr. Mondolfi underwent seven years of post-medical-school specialty training in some of the top programs of the nation. Not satisfied with fulfilling the basic prerequisite training, Dr. Mondolfi completed a full general surgery residency and reached the position of Chief Resident and Instructor in Surgery at the University of Rochester Surgical Program.
He sought additional training in reconstruction of cancer of the breast at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer in New York City. The reputable Temple University Hospital Plastic Surgery Program is the foundation of his plastic surgery training, where he again rose to the position of Chief Resident and Instructor in Surgery.
Dr. Mondolfi has held teaching positions, been involved in clinical research, published scientific articles and served on the editorial board of the Plastic Surgery Journal, which is the official publication of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
His quest to remain current with all innovations in plastic surgery has led to his involvement with MACS-lifts, lipoabdominoplasty, fat transfers to breasts and buttocks, mini and nano fat grafts to face, and other minimally invasive cosmetic procedures.
According to his patients, Dr. Mondolfi’s strong points are his experience, his patience, his willingness to listen, and the honest (at times blunt) way he proposes solutions and/or alternatives.
Quoting Dr. Mondolfi:
“When evaluating a patient seeking aesthetic surgery, I start with an in depth discussion of the patients concerns and expectations. My analysis is done through the eyes of a physician and those of a sculptor. I seek to identify those features that are unique and desirable in order to enhance them as well as those that appear to be detrimental in order to soften or to mitigate them.”
“I am not in the business of selling procedures to my patients” says Dr. Mondolfi, “but rather to practice medicine of the highest quality.”
