Meet Our Staff
Meet our Staff- here at Mittelman Plastic Surgery and MedSpa.
Aside from depth and breadth of experience, other important things to know about a prospective cosmetic surgeon and staff is their approach to personal care and their concept of beauty. It is Dr. Mittelman’s and his staff’s goal to individualize each consultation and facial surgical procedure. This requires a certain intuition and an understanding of the patient’s expectations, as well as the coordination of the patient’s objectives within the realm of what can be achieved safely. Dr. Mittelman and his staff strive to obtain the best aesthetic result possible within the context of safety and a natural, non-surgical look. They believe that cosmetic surgery can produce beautiful results, especially when these results are so natural that they are not obvious to others.

Her background in the Emergency Room and Intensive Care settings provides her with the knowledge and experience to deliver excellent patient care. In 2017, she moved from San Francisco to Menlo Park and stepped away from hospital based nursing in order to have more flexibility while raising her three daughters. With a passion for aesthetics and anti-aging modalities, Wendi was excited at the opportunity to join Mittelman Plastic Surgery. She assists during surgery and also specializes in non-surgical aesthetic procedures such as IPL (intense pulsed light therapy), Laser hair removal/reduction, hair restoration, and Microneedling with PRP (platelet-rich plasma).
