Boston Nose Surgeon - Dr. Del Vecchio

An extremely important factor for you to understand when selecting a Boston cosmetic surgeon is that any licensed physician is legally allowed to advertise as a “plastic” surgeon or “cosmetic” surgeon, even if he or she has no formal surgical training. When you are choosing a Boston cosmetic surgeon in Massachusetts , it is critical that they are Board-Certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Dr. Del Vecchio is a distinguished member of the ABPS and is proud to call the Boston area home.

Native to Massachusetts, Dr. Del Vecchio graduated summa cum laude from the prestigious Yale University. Following Yale he returned to Boston and attended Harvard Medical School, where he earned his medical degree in 1984. He completed training in general and in plastic surgery at Mass General Hospital and achieved Board Certification in both general surgery and in plastic surgery. He received additional fellowship training in cosmetic surgery at the University of Pennsylvania.

After completing his cosmetic surgery training over ten years, Dr. Del Vecchio has continued to remain in an academic environment and to educate others in the field of cosmetic surgery. He has published papers in the plastic surgery literature, has written chapters in major plastic surgery textbooks, and has spoken at national meetings on the subject of cosmetic surgery. Dr. Del Vecchio has also been involved in the training of surgical residents at Tufts New England Medical Center, where he was an Assistant Professor of Surgery, and at Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital where he is currently a member of the Consulting Staff in the Division of Plastic Surgery.
