After graduating with his doctorate from New York Medical College in 1996, Dr. Tito L. Vasquez began a journey that would eventually lead him to open his own practice.

He and his team of medical professionals now tackle a full spectrum of plastic-surgery procedures, specializing in breast surgery, tummy tucks, and hand surgery. They also offer a full range of less invasive aesthetic services, including microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and beauty injections.
