Dr. Minoli is A Triple Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon in Las Vegas, NV

“My object in living is to unite my avocation and my vocation as my two eyes make one in sight.”

Robert Frost

Throughout his decades-long surgical career, Dr. John Minoli has maintained the same principle: to provide compassionate and competent facial rejuvenation and body contouring results that reflect and demonstrate his extensive training and experience.

This training has led him across the country, where he has had the opportunity to train and learn from some of the most respected plastic surgeons. This wide range of education and geographical locations have allowed him to develop a deep appreciation of the plastic surgery experience and how it affects his patients’ minds, bodies, and spirits.

To Dr. Minoli, plastic surgery is transformative on multiple levels; it is a personal renaissance and rebirth.

Plastic Surgery
is an Art

Following a Lifelong Dream to Be a Surgeon

Dr. Minoli was born and raised in Brooklyn. From a young age, he was surrounded by medicine and surgery, with three previous generations of doctors in his family. Because of this, the importance of education was instilled in him early on.

He was only in second grade when he decided that becoming a surgeon was his goal, being inspired by Dr. Christiaan Barnard, the first surgeon to perform a human heart transplant.

As Dr. Minoli grew up, he moved away from medicine and took up more artistic interests; however, in the end, the desire to practice medicine and help patients was still rooted in him, and he saw plastic surgery as the ideal way to integrate and combine his love of art, science, and surgery.

A True Renaissance Man

True to the name, Dr. Minoli is well-rounded and skilled in many areas. In addition to his interest in science, he has always gravitated to sports (he loves golf) and artistic pursuits, including theater, drama, and singing. In 1979, Dr. Minoli even sang with a group to a full capacity audience at the world-famous Carnegie Hall. While he no longer performs (at least to that level), he still loves music and often plays Sinatra in the operating room.

Treating The Whole Patient

Integrating his varied interests into his work is important to Dr. Minoli. This has contributed to his philosophy of treating the whole patient on all levels, including physical, emotional, and spiritual.

Drawn to Facial Rejuvenation

While also trained and experienced in body and breast procedures, Dr. Minoli was drawn to the head and neck from the beginning of his career. This interest initially led him to ear, nose, and throat surgery.

Dr. Minoli has spent more than twice the average surgeon’s time training in face and nose plastic surgery. Few other doctors in America have achieved the same level of advanced rhinoplasty, nasal, and facelifting training as he.

After completing a six-year residency in Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery at Washington University’s Barnes and Jewish Hospitals in St. Louis, he traveled west to Beverly Hills to complete a one-year fellowship in facial plastic surgery with the respected Dr. Frank Kamer.
