Dr. Daniel A Medalie, M.D.

Cleveland Plastic Surgeon | Dr. Daniel A. Medalie, M.D. | Cleveland OH Dr. Medalie of Cleveland Plastic Surgery prides himself on being at the forefront of plastic surgical technique.Since 2009 he has consistently been voted by the Best Doctors, Inc as one of the best plastic surgeons in America (2009-2014). He has also been named by US News  as one of America's 'Top Doctors', based on a survey by Castle Connolly (putting him in the top 1% of all plastic surgeons in the country).He has been awarded the People’s Choice award continuously for the last 5 years.

Dr. Medalie is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who originally hails from the east coast, having grown up in Washington D.C. and lived in both Boston and New York City. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard University and then studied art in New York City at Parsons School of Design and the Art Student’s League, prior to entering Cornell University Medical College. After his third year of medical school, he spent a year in Paris conducting research, returning to Cornell for his fourth year to receive his Doctorate of Medicine with early membership in the honor society, Alpha Omega Alpha. At graduation, he and two classmates were recognized as the top three medical students in the graduating class. He then received the honor of being the first physician ever accepted into the new and highly regarded University of Pittsburgh Medical Center integrated plastic surgery training program. This comprehensive program combines six years of general and plastic surgery training with two additional years of intensive research.  Dr. Medalie decided to spend those two years at the Massachusetts General Hospital and Shriners Burns Institute as a surgical research fellow studying gene therapy and skin tissue engineering.
Upon completion of his training, he was appointed assistant professor of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky. He remained there as an attending surgeon and director of the burn/wound clinic for three years prior to moving to Cleveland to be closer to family. For the next 4 years, he served as an assistant professor at University Hospitals and Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, and Chief of plastic surgery at the Cleveland VA Medical Center. He is now pleased to announce his  full time affiliation with Metrohealth Medical Center in Cleveland and the Cleveland Clinic (adjunct teaching faculty) and his continued affiliation with Case Western Reserve Medical School.
Dr. Medalie maintains clinical interests in the broad field of plastic surgery, including:
  • Breast augmentation (implants and fat injection ) , breast lift (mastopexy), breast reduction, breast reconstruction (implants and autogenous tissue), gynecomastia reduction
  • Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) , liposuction, body contouring, post weight loss body sculpting,
  • Labiaplasty with labia minora and majora reduction as well as fat injection to the labia majora,clitoral hood reduction, vaginal rejuvenation (vaginoplasty)
  • Facelift, brow lift, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, otoplasty and fat grafting
  • Reconstructive microsurgery and soft tissue restoration following cancer or trauma
  • He also specializes in all aspects of Transgender Surgery including FtM and MtF "top" surgery, facial feminization, metoidioplasty
His research interests include the general area of wound healing with specific interests in tissue engineering, skin substitutes and cutaneous gene therapy.

Dr. Medalie's Photography

I have always maintained a strong interest in art. Once I started medical school, however, I found that I had limited time to pursue my outside interests. Since plastic surgeons are always required to carry a camera for patient photographs, I developed a deeper interest in photography. With my purchase of a digital SLR four years ago, I became much more serious about taking pictures and almost always have a camera with me at all times. You never know when a good shot can be captured! I particularly enjoy "macro" photography (extreme close-up) because it appeals to my fine appreciation of detail. If you would like to see some of my photos, please click on the picture links below. This will take you to my Flickr site, where I share my work with the large online Flickr community. I love feedback on my work and encourage you to leave comments!
