Born in Los Angeles, California, Dr. Mendieta moved, at a young age, to his parent’s homeland – Nicaragua. Dr. Medieta’s first exposure to the art and science of plastic surgery was provided here while observing his uncle – a plastic surgeon – reconstruct the disfigured faces of war victims. Marveled by his uncles’ skills and ability to restore near-normal appearance, Dr. Mendieta returned to the United States where he completed his secondary education, all the while focusing on one day emulating the work and accomplishments of the man he admired. While pursuing this ambition, Dr. Mendieta has received numerous honors and awards including being named in the International Who’s Who and graduating Magna Cum Laud. Adding to his multiple distinctions and achievements, Dr. Mendieta completed a rigorous residency program in general surgery at Maricopa Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona. Subsequently, Dr. Mendieta then continued his plastic surgery training at the University of Miami, obtaining specialties in both general surgery and plastic surgery.* Having completed his institutional education regimen, Dr. Mendieta was recognized early on for his vast knowledge and skills. Possessing such attributes, Dr. Mendieta received the distinct privilege and opportunity of enhancing his training under world-renowned leaders in the plastic surgery field. His training experiences took him to Brazil, Scotland, and England where he completed a fellowship at the Royal College of Surgeons. Afterward, Dr. Mendieta returned to California where he studied under one of the world’s most accomplished facelift surgeons as well as working with several internationally-respected figures.
