It is difficult to encapsulate years of training and experience in a few words. What I most prefer to emphasize in my practice is honesty. I will not promise impossible results nor will I discount the risks of any procedure no matter how small. That being said I will strive to achieve the best outcome humanly possible.

In my current role as an assistant professor of plastic surgery at Case Western Reserve and Metrohealth Medical Center, I have had extensive experience in all aspects of cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery. Each consultation will be comprehensive and detail the surgery to be performed, including risks and benefits and any alternative treatments.

My goal is to answer the needs of any surgical candidate with patience, skill and artistry and perform to the utmost of my capabilities.

If you are out of state or have a quick question, Dr. Medalie would be more than happy to answer e-mail questions and even evaluate e-mailed photographs. He has found this particularly useful for his gynecomastia and gender patients. Please contact him at
