I slipped on ice landing on my face opening a gash. At the emergency room Dr. Melendez cleaned and stitched my wound. His professional and precise work has left me scar free..

I had my tummy tuck on April 2014 by Dr. Mark Melendez. Thinking I won't have any more kids do to I had 2 teenagers... Guess what, on March 2017 I had a HEALTHY baby boy by C-section with NO COMPLICATIONS and my belly was flat after the procedure, I was super happy. Now just 12 days ago I just had another C-section having another HEALTHY and first baby girl with No COMPLICATIONS and the results after my c-section are amazing! Once again my belly is flat, I feel great! Thank you Mark Melendez!

I needed reconstructive face surgery due to a dog bite. Dr. Melendez is a skilled, thorough,and artful surgeon. He sutured microscopically for over an hour. The wound was 3 layers deep. The ER staff thought I would need a skin graft, but he did the repair without one. He takes his time, never appears hurried. He is very compassionate, not judgemental to the situation. I was blessed that he was the lDoc on call that day in the ER. I am so thankful to him. My friends no longer saw the scar first

What a pleasure to meet Dr. Melendez at a local charity event for breast cancer. He is professional, articulate and just a pleasure to come to know. He also has a very professional office manager, Erin, and sees patients out of a Fairfield, CT office, in addition to Shelton. My three visits since then for Botox injections have all been successful. Dr. Melendez is very thorough and meticulous! I look forward to returning for more treatments--highly recommend! Very generous with time, too!

Dr. Melendez is absolutely amazing. Last year we found out my mother had breast cancer. Our world completely fell apart. We had so many questions and concerns. We were introduced to Dr. Melendez and from the first consultation, I knew my mother was in great hands. Needless to say, my mother now looks even more beautiful confident. Dr. Melendez and his staff are always so kind and helpful. They worked with us financially and through some scheduling difficulties. I will forever be thankful!

I am beyond thankful to have found Dr. Melendez. After undergoing 9 reconstructive surgeries following a botched double mastectomy by a different surgeon I was left in severe pain and with necrosis in both breasts. I found Dr. Melendez and that appointment changed my life, he was compassionate, caring and knowledgeable about my problems. The implants he put in are comfortable and natural looking, and best of all I feel like a woman again. I cannot thank him enough.

Dr. Melendez is hands down the best plastic and reconstructive surgeon in Fairfield County. I have experience with other plastic surgeons in the area, and have never been treated so well. His commitment to excellence is evident in his consultation, pre op, and the time he takes with each patient. He explains everything thoroughly, is always available for questions, and takes such pride in his work that one knows they are in great hands under his care. Wonderful experience! Highly recommend!
