to Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery Associates of Connecticut

For many patients, electing to have cosmetic surgery or needing to have reconstructive procedures is one of the most personal decisions they will ever make. Since cosmetic and reconstructive surgery affects both the patient’s physical and emotional well-being — more so, than with many other medical procedures — we believe in truly getting to know our patients from their medical history to their lifestyle. We understand the process and we are committed to offering a modern, holistic, patient-centric approach to high-quality medical care.


Dr. Mark Melendez

Our practice was founded by Dr. Mark Melendez, a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon, who performs a full spectrum of cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures for the face, breast, and body, including micro-vascular breast reconstruction surgery – such as the DIEP flap procedure — for breast cancer patients, along with facial rejuvenation (including dermal fillers).


We are also dedicated to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all of our patients. Our modality of care involves combining cutting-edge surgical techniques with compassion, kindness, time, and accessibility.


We offer a dedicated 24-hour patient care telephone line for those who require an additional level of care. Our office is conveniently located in Shelton, Connecticut.

Dr. Melendez also has staff privileges at Greenwich Hospital, Griffin Hospital, and St. Vincent’s Medical Center.


We look forward to caring for you and to exceeding your expectations. Thank you for visiting our Web site.
