About Dr. Daniel A Medalie MD

Daniel A. Medalie, M.D. of Cleveland Plastic Surgery prides himself on being at the forefront of plastic surgical technique. Since 2009, he has consistently been voted by the Best Doctors, Inc as one of the best plastic surgeons in America (2009-2016). He has also been named by US News as one of America’s ‘Top Doctors’, based on a survey by Castle Connolly (putting him in the top 1% of all plastic surgeons in the country). He has been awarded the People’s Choice award continuously for the last 7 years. Dr. Medalie is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who originally hails from the east coast. He grew up in Washington D.C. and has lived in both Boston and New York City. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University and then studied art in New York City at Parsons School of Design and the Art Students League prior to entering Cornell University Medical College. After his third year of medical school, he spent a year in Paris conducting research, returning to Cornell for his fourth year to receive his Doctorate of Medicine with early membership in the honor society, Alpha Omega Alpha. At graduation, he and two classmates were recognized as the top three medical students in the graduating class.

This comprehensive program combined six years of general and plastic surgery training with two additional years of intensive research. Dr. Medalie decided to spend those two years at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Shriners Burns Institute as an NIH surgical research fellow studying gene therapy and skin tissue engineering. Upon completion of his training, he was appointed assistant professor of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky.

Best BOTOX EVER!!!!!!!!

I've been getting Botox for quite some time from other people sometimes I would use my regular general practitioner who would do a share program with girls every 3 months and I thought it was expensive but it seemed to be okay at first and then I noticed it didn't seem to last or it didn't seem like it was enough which seems strange then I use the Groupon for a deal I seem to get the same amount as I got when I first started getting Botox and it was great then I noticed subsequent appointments it's the same thing happening wasn't lasting as long asking to do more each time. Then when I found Dr medalie for my other procedures I was having done which I will give a review in a different section also amazing I decided to go to him for my Botox. What a difference that's what I can say. Now I really know what it's supposed to look like when an actual plastic surgeon does your Botox. To use less units I have exactly the look I want without the creases between my eyes without the crow's feet without having a Frozen face and I have a great lift to my eyebrows just amazing I couldn't be happier. Dog has a very great personality his staff is amazing they're always there for me anything I need or if I have questions I don't think I would be comfortable going to anybody else for anything else. And this is the first time the girls at the place I work at have seen my Botox and said take me with you next time. So other people have noticed a difference.

Great Lipo, So-So Rhino

In 2010, I had lipo of my flanks, inner & outer thighs, and lower tummy. I also had rhinoplasty on my nose to narrow a wide bridge and this was done at the same time as the lipo. Dr. Medalie was kind and attentive in our consultation and I went with him based on that and his reputation. The liposuction went great and still looks fantastic 5 years later. I'm so glad I went for it! The rhinoplasty is another story; not terrible but not perfect. He did exactly what I wanted in terms of narrowing my bridge...no complaints there. However, I was left with a polly beak deformity that is quite unflattering. I've waited 5 years for all swelling to go down (not that it took that long...about a year for me) and I'm ready to get it fixed, which is scary. Revision Rhino is a tricky procedure b/c of scar tissue and I'm bummed. I've also moved from Cleveland to Alabama so I need to find a good doctor here. Anyway, I don't want to belittle Dr. Medalie's skills as a surgeon for noses or anything else...I just want to share my story and hope it helps in your search for happiness.

Labiaplasty

I found Dr. Medalie through researching online and since I live out of town I booked the surgery before my consultation. If you are interested in labiaplasty I recommend watching the video on his website where he performs this. It's extremely hard to watch, but once I did I felt confident with Dr. Medalie's technique and was able to trust that he was the right doctor for me. I flew into Cleveland early mornig the day before the procedure and had my pre-op appointment. I was even further assured of my decision after talking with him and he walked me through the procedure and listened to any questions that I had and made me feel comfortable. He showed me photos of his work and explained what the recovery would be like. The next day I came back to the same office for the procedure. The nurse was so sweet and comforting and I loved her! The only part that hurt at all was when they injected local anesthetic, but the pain was very minimal and lasted only a few seconds. Total time was about 1.5 hours. They played calming music the whole time and really made me feel comfortable. The post-op appointment is typically around 7-10 days later, but since I was out of town and only in the area for 1 week, I returned 5 days later. I am still very swollen and in early stages of recovery, but I had to write a review to say how great Dr. Medalie is and that I recommend him to anyone. So far, I am extremely happy with this process and my decision to go through with something I have wanted to do for many years. THANKS!!

Very precise, encouraging, and well-informed

I only have great things to say. D. M did my top and bottom surgeries. I have minimal scarring up top and my chest looks fantastic. He was very supportive and answered all of my questions. No complications. My bottom surgery- metoidoplasty/scrotumplasty/pelvic lift all went beautifully too. I am 41 and have been waiting a long time for these surgeries. I am ever so grateful to him.
