Vincent D. Lepore MD
About the Practice
While you might expect plastic surgeons in San Jose to be reserved, clinical, and hurried, Dr. Lepore is quite the opposite. He appreciates the human connection of his profession as much as the medical side. At their initial consultation, people are often pleasantly surprised by his genuine and down-to-earth personality. He admires and values the innovative atmosphere of Silicon Valley, and he enjoys the warmth of its people, so much so, that he chose to live and raise his family in the area.
Dr. Lepore has a dedicated staff, with most of them working for him for over a decade. From the front office to the operating room, his team will support you with experience, knowledge, and authentic kindness. They go above and beyond an everyday job description to show each patient he or she is valued on the inside and out.
Dr. Lepore enjoys performing a wide variety of procedures. He treats the whole person, from head to toe, with across-the-board skill and experience. One of the leading plastic surgeons in San Jose and Los Gatos, CA , Dr. Lepore likes a challenge and relishes the diversity of procedures and patients encountered by a reconstructive and cosmetic surgeon. San Jose residents are interested in an array of procedures such as face lifts , breast augmentation , and liposuction . Dr. Lepore performs them all and more with skill and dedication.
