Meet Dr. Brad Gandolfi
For Dr. Brad Gandolfi, the look on a happy patient’s face at the end of their surgical journey is what excites him about his work and drives his attention to detail.

After training all across the country, Dr. Gandolfi is happy to be back on the east coast. He currently resides with his family in Jersey City. He enjoys cooking, music, Saints football (sorry Jets and Giants fans), architecture, and cars.

He prioritizes the patient’s needs in his treatment plans so the impact on their day-to-day life is minimized, all while using his advanced techniques to maximize their results.
Dr. Gandolfi has always been interested in art and architecture, and uses his keenly developed eye for design to help create aesthetic results for his patients.
Education and Training
Dr Gandolfi chose both the most comprehensive and specialized training offered a plastic surgeon. After completing medical school, he spent nine years in surgical training programs at some of the most prestigious academic institutions across the country. Learning from doctors and patients in Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York and North Carolina gave Dr. Gandolfi exposure to a variety of patient care styles and surgical techniques that he would later combine to give his patients the best care possible.
- Dr. Gandolfi completed his craniofacial fellowship at the world-renowned UCLA Center for Craniofacial Surgery. Here, he learned the most advanced techniques in craniofacial and jaw reconstruction. Additionally, he spent time at many cosmetic surgery offices in Beverly Hills where he focused on rhinoplasty, body contouring, and facelifts.

Here, he built a foundation in surgical knowledge and techniques that continues to guide his treatment strategies as he helps his patients through their complex problems.
Plastic and reconstructive surgery is driven by science and years of research. Despite its scientific groundings, Dr. Gandolfi believes there is a lot of art in his practice. His intensive training gave him many scientific tools for repairing or improving the body, applying the right tool to achieve the patient’s desired aesthetic goals is his art.
Notable Researcher and Lecturer
Dr. Gandolfi has been invited to lecture both nationally and internationally on topics concerning craniofacial surgery. He has contributed to prestigious texts such as “Secondary Rhinoplasty by the Global Masters” and “Operative Techniques in Plastic Surgery” that will inform the next generation of surgeons.

Dr Gandolfi grew up in New Orleans and was in medical school there during Hurricane Katrina. The hardships gone through by the people of his city over the years following the storm strengthened Dr Gandolfi’s commitment to community service. Dr Gandolfi’s specialized training in craniofacial surgery allows him to treat complex facial deformities that would otherwise go untreated in poorer countries. Over the last two years he has used his personal vacation time to travel to China and Guatemala to operate on children born with cleft lips and palates, giving them an opportunity at a normal life.
