At the heart of Peninsula Plastic surgery are plastic surgeons Vincent Perrotta and Christopher Pellegrino. Both are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the prestigious American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Prior to establishing Peninsula Plastic Surgery in 1995, Dr. Perrotta served as an attending surgeon and Instructor of Plastic Surgery at Temple University. 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 is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and is an active member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the prestigious American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
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. Former Chief of Plastic Surgery at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Maryland, Dr. Pellegrino is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and the American Board of Surgery (ABS) and is an active member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. 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.
Dr. Pellegrino serves as a board member and surgeon for La-Merced, traveling to Nicaragua on a medical mission to provide reconstructive surgery for under privileged children with congenital deformities and acquired deformities of the face, trunk and extremities. He has attended missions in 2010, 2011, 2013, and most recently in June of 2015.
