Plastic Surgery Patients From Buffalo, NY

The front exterior of the Quatela House

As a premier practice in the Northeast, the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery draws patients from Buffalo, NY, and beyond for our superior quality of care and results. Our team of board-certified plastic surgeons includes specialists in facial plastic surgery and in breast and body surgery. We take pride in offering a complete range of advanced surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in our exquisitely restored Victorian-era mansion.

Our Facial Plastic Surgery Specialists

Many Buffalo residents have discovered it’s well worth the drive to Rochester to have the utmost confidence in their choice of facial plastic surgeon. Our team includes three exceptional surgeons who focus exclusively on cosmetic procedures of the face, head, and neck.

Dr. Vito Quatela

Our founder Dr. Quatela is a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon and a board-certified hair transplant surgeon. A past president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, he is recognized both nationally and internationally for his expertise in facial plastic surgery by physicians and patients alike.

“I am a physician (in my late 40’s) and live around 2 hrs from Dr. Quatela. I’ve had both injectable and surgical procedures from Dr Q. I researched the best plastic surgeons in the US and was willing travel for the right surgeon. I learned that Dr. Q. is nationally well known and has trained some of the top surgeons in the “big cities”.  If you are looking for work on your face, then see a plastic facial surgeon that only works on the face and neck.”

Each and every person I encountered took their time to patiently answer my extensive questions and allay my considerable fears. Not only is Dr. Lee a master at her craft, she’s a lovely person, as well.” Courageous116960 on RealSelf (more reviews)
