Meet The Team

At the Staiano Clinic we have some of the country’s leading experts in the field of plastic and cosmetic surgery. All of our experts have reached the top of their field and have years of experience behind them. We do not have ‘generalists’ who might give you botox one day and then put breast implants in the next day. We have specialists. Each member brings with them a particular skill that he or she has spent years refining, which they perform day in, day out.

Because we work together as a team, we are able to offer a full range of surgical and non-surgical treatments and you can rest assured that we each have a passion for what we are doing in providing treatment of the highest standard.
