At the heart of Peninsula Plastic surgery are plastic surgeons Vincent Perrotta and Christopher Pellegrino. Both are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeryand both are active members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeonsand the La Merced Medical Mission Team.
Sixteen years ago, Dr. Perrotta came from Temple University, where he served as an attending surgeon. While in the university setting, he performed both basic science and clinical research which culminated in national publications. He left the university setting with the goal of bringing metropolitan-quality plastic surgery to the Delmarva Peninsula.
Dr. Perrotta has a great appreciation for art, which is evident to anyone who visits the beautiful office complex he and his partners erected in Salisbury. Although Dr. Perrotta has extensive experience with all facets of plastic and reconstructive surgery, he enjoys sculpting most. Whether he is reducing the hump on a nose or forming the perfect curve on a woman's hip, he takes great pains to produce the perfect result. He considers himself an artist first and next a surgeon.
Dr. Perrotta believes a picture speaks a thousand words, particularly in plastic surgery, where visual outcomes determine the level of patient satisfaction. Therefore, he strongly encourages all potential patients to peruse through "before and after" images of his patients as well as those of other plastic surgeons.
Dr. Pellegrino joined the practice in summer of 2003. He is a graduate of the prestigious Johns Hopkins University. He is the local expert with injectables, including Juvederm and Botox. While Dr. Pellegrino enjoys all facets of plastic surgery, he focuses on body contouring and breast reconstruction following mastectomy.
