Dr. Mark Melendez, who has offices in both Greenwich and Shelton, recently celebrated the opening of his newest practice — Fairfield Plastic Surgery — with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Fairfield First Selectman Mike Tetreau and Fairfield Chamber of Commerce President Beverly Balaz participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony, along with Dr. Melendez, his wife, Dr. Renee Baranin-Melendez, and their eldest son, Mark Richard.

The party, which was attended by colleagues, friends, and family members, featured delicious tapas dishes from Chef Daniel Lopez, owner of Taberna Restaurant, also in Fairfield.

Dr. Melendez took over Fairfield Plastic Surgery, in September of this year, after Dr. David Yan — who had run the practice for several years — decided to relocate to Florida. Dr. Melendez, and Dr. Yan, had trained at the same plastic surgery residency program, on Long Island, and Dr. Yan approached Dr. Melendez to incorporate his office into his own practice.

A gifted, Johns Hopkins Fellowship-trained microvascular surgeon, Dr. Melendez performs a full spectrum of plastic and reconstructive surgery for the face, hand, body, and breast, along with facial rejuvenation (including fillers). He also specializes in breast reconstruction surgery, including the DIEP flap procedure, for breast cancer patients.

Dr. Melendez notes, “I am honored to have taken over this new practice and to continue to offer all of my patients a holistic approach to surgery, along with total patient accessibility. I provide all of my patients with my personal cell phone and I also make house calls, when necessary.” READ MORE...
