OUR DOCTOR - Louis Bonaldi, MD, FACS

Gentle, soft-spoken and humble are three words not typically associated with a gifted plastic surgeon. But Dr. Louis Bonaldi, head of The Center for Plastic Surgery, is anything but typical. There are two very distinct sides to this remarkable man, both of which are tempered with an unbelievable level of modesty. We invite you to get to know both sides.

Dr. Bonaldi, The Artist: The artist in Dr. Bonaldi surfaces as a painter who finds inspiration from his muse regularly, and as a concert pianist who has performed at the world-famous Carnegie Hall. This wildly creative side gives Dr. Bonaldi a distinct edge over others in the field because his keen eye for beauty is inherent, not learned.

Dr. Bonaldi, The Surgeon: The surgeon in Dr. Bonaldi is a perfectionist who has by all standards mastered his craft. In addition to being a board-certified plastic surgeon, he has successfully completed advanced training in reconstructive and microsurgery‹an accomplishment achieved by only a handful of elite doctors nationwide.

Beyond schooling and training, Dr. Bonaldi has the extensive experience you want in a plastic surgeon. Performing more than six times the national average of face lists per surgeon per year in 2007 and 2008, Dr. Bonaldi has what it takes to treat the most complex cases with care and finesse, and has the advanced medical training to handle any complication that may arise.
