Meet Dr. Pedro Vieira
Dr. Vieira’s love for science and taking care of people prompted his college professors to steer him towards a career in medicine. He knew on the first day of surgical rotation in medical school that he was meant to be a surgeon. Eventually, his meticulous nature and eye for detail led him to plastic surgery.
After completing general surgery residency, at the New Jersey Medical School program, Dr. Vieira worked as a general surgeon in Hunterdon County. He started his path towards a career in plastic and reconstructive surgery by first entering a burn surgery fellowship at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, N.Y.
During plastic surgery residency at the Cleveland Clinic Florida, he honed his surgical skills to address reconstruction from an aesthetic perspective. This training provided him with countless cases to apply surgical skills and artistic finesse to bring patients from disfigurement to wholeness. On his first medical mission trip he developed a love for craniofacial surgery. This led him to pursue a craniofacial surgery fellowship at the University of Texas South Western in Dallas, TX.
approach and care
Dr. Vieira has performed hundreds of plastic surgery procedures, including rhinoplasty, facelift, and a full range of body procedures—including breast augmentation and tummy tucks. Today, he is most gratified when patients share satisfaction their results. He knows that listening closely to each patient’s individual concerns helps guide the best treatment plan. His availability to talk with patients at any point, he ensures they are comfortable with every aspect of their care.
Dr. Vieira conducts surgical procedures using the latest and safest techniques in reconstructive and plastic surgery. He stays up to date with the most recent research in all topics surrounding plastic surgery.
With minimally and non-invasive procedures becoming more advanced and effective every year, Dr. Vieira also remains current in the techniques for injecting fillers such as Juvéderm® and Restylane®, Radiesse®. He is also skilled in the use of , Dysport™ and BOTOX®. When one of these non-surgical therapies fulfills a patient’s goals, Dr. Vieira is happy to help patients avoid surgery. The “liquid” rhinoplasty and facelift rejuvenate facial contours effectively for many patients, particularly those under 50.
Dr. Vieira pursued additional training in the area of craniofacial surgery at Children’s Hospital and Parkland Trauma Hospital, through the University of Texas South Western program in Dallas, Texas. While there he was involved with treating the most complex pediatric and adult craniofacial problems. This training helped him better understand how to address the aesthetic and reconstructive needs of patients with facial concerns.
