Dr. Dominick Gadaleta
Dominick Gadaleta, MD
As a teenager, Dr. Gadaleta suffered a severe facial trauma that required the care of an expert plastic surgeon, an experience that left an indelible impression on him and spurred his interest in medicine.
Around that time, he was also developing a passion for drawing, painting, and sculpting, which he continues to pursue today. While enrolled in medical school at Boston University, Dr. Gadaleta decided to pursue facial plastic surgery as a way to combine these twin passions.
Following five years of residency training solely dedicated to surgery of the face and neck, Dr. Gadaleta was selected to be the sole Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellow at New York University, one of less than 50 positions offered throughout the entire country. Training in New York City offered Dr. Gadaleta access to some of the world’s most renowned facial surgeons. The busy year was spent dedicated to both surgical and nonsurgical approaches to facial rejuvenation and rhinoplasty.
Dr. Gadaleta is an active member of the prestigious American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons. In addition to his clinical accomplishments, he is an avid researcher, and works in some of the most cutting-edge spaces in medicine, including 3D printing and tissue engineering. He has presented his original research at national meetings throughout the country. He is thrilled to bring his skill set and artistic touch to the Bay Area to provide his clients with the safest, most innovative, and personalized techniques available.
