Dr. Capuano spent seven years of additional training to become Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.  He has remained innovated, studied and skilled in modern and advanced techniques of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Capuano is convinced that LESS CAN BE MORE AND BETTER. He has over the years concentrated on less extensive and invasive surgery and has provided his patients with non surgical alternatives to help achieve the goals of ‘turning back the clock’. Perhaps most importantly, the chances of major problems have been minimized.

 

He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and a member of the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Experience and knowledge in plastic, reconstructive and cosmetic surgery, provide the opportunity for quality surgical care.
