Meet Dr. Vito Quatela

Doctor Vito C. QuatelaOur founder and director, Dr. Vito C. Quatela, is certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ABFPRS) and the American Board of Otolaryngology (ABO) – Head and Neck Surgery and remains an acknowledged leader in the area of aesthetic facial surgery. Dr. Quatela has made it his duty to enhance the lives of others by improving their self-confidence through aesthetically enhancing their appearance and features. This has prompted him to open and develop a practice that is comprehensive in its scope, extending beyond plastic surgery into areas of non-surgical treatments. This includes healthy skin care programs located at Q the Medical Spa as well as hair restoration at the Quatela Center for Hair Restoration, which is also located at Lindsay House. Dr. Quatela has more than 30 years of experience and was the former president of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (AAFPRS). He also serves as a board examiner yearly for the ABFPRS examinations.

Respected Authority

Dr. Quatela has had numerous publications in medical journals and is noted as an educator with few equals, as seen by his numerous professorships and lectureships, given both nationally and internationally. Dr. Quatela is often interviewed by members of the journalistic press and has been a featured speaker in a variety of media ranging from the New York Times, W Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, to network news such as FOX, ABC, NBC, and CBS.

Dr. Quatela is a graduate of the University of Rochester and attained his medical degree at Northwestern University. Dr. Quatela has returned to the University of Rochester’s otolaryngology department, where he is presently serving as a clinical associate professor and as a preceptor for the annual AAFPRS fellowship in addition to his practice.


With his creation of the HUGS (Help Us Give Smiles) Foundation, Inc., Dr. Quatela has consistently demonstrated his kindness and consideration of others, particularly children. The HUGS Foundation supports yearly medical missions to aid children in countries such as Vietnam, Guatemala, and Ecuador. It is Dr. Quatela’s personal philosophy that “every human being has a fundamental right to the opportunity to grow and develop socially and intellectually without being ostracized or rejected due to a physical abnormality.” It is this philosophy that has compelled him to head the team of experts comprised of individuals with different specialties to provide needed medical help to both children and young adults that were unfortunately born with defects that can be repaired with plastic surgery.
