Dr. Nidia H. De Jesus was born in the Dominican Republic and moved to New York City at an early age. She grew up in the Washington Heights neighborhood of northern Manhattan. With an early gift for appreciation of aesthetics, she attended the highly selective High School of Fashion Industries, where she honed her artistic skills and excelled academically, graduating as valedictorian of her class at age 15.
From there, she went on to explore new horizons at Skidmore College, where she majored in Biology. As part of a study-abroad program, she spent a semester studying at King’s College London in the United Kingdom and had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout Western Europe. This experience was incredibly rewarding and one Dr. De Jesus still cherishes.
She graduated from Skidmore College in 1999 as Cum Laude with Honors in Biology and as a Periclean Scholar. Her interests in research led her to positions at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston and The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.
In 2001, she began medical studies at Stony Brook University in Long Island and soon after discovering the potential for incorporating research into a medical career was accepted into the Medical Scientist Training Program, during which she completed a Ph.D. in Molecular Genetics and Microbiology and a medical degree.
Following her studies at Stony Brook, Dr. De Jesus went on to complete a five-year residency in General Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York’s Upper East Side. There she learned to diagnose and treat countless surgical problems and soon realized that one particularly surgical sub-specialty seamlessly married her passions for art, science, and medicine – plastic surgery.
In 2014, Dr. De Jesus began a three-year plastic surgery residency at the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic Florida. Under excellent mentorship, she perfected her surgical skills and attention to detail while learning her craft.
Following the completion of her surgical training, in 2017, Dr. De Jesus accepted a position at a premier aesthetic plastic surgery practice in Wine Country – Napa, California. Years later, she decided to return to South Florida, where she knew she could further enhance her practice.
Dr. De Jesus is an incredibly talented and compassionate plastic surgeon. Unwavering dedication and hard work have made her who she is today. She is grateful to her family, mentors, and patients. She has a special interest in aesthetic plastic surgery and strongly believes in doing her part to help her patients look, feel, and be the best versions of themselves they can be. She believes in the empowerment and confidence that her work can instill and looks forward to providing the best possible care, where you, her patient, is at the forefront.
