Caring Philosophy 

Dr. Rendon is known not only for his attention to detail and excellent results but also for his personalized approach to care, treating each of his patients as if they were his own family.

“The decision to undergo plastic surgery is a very personal one and I am humbled by the privilege to be part of my patients’ lives.”

Education & Training  

Dr. Rendon received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. and then practiced as a cardiothoracic intensive care registered nurse at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. He received his medical degree and Ph.D. from Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine, where he studied burns and wound healing. Dr. Rendon then completed a rigorous 6-year plastic surgery residency at The Ohio State University. There, he trained with internationally recognized leaders in plastic surgery and developed a passion for breast reconstruction and aesthetic surgery. He sought additional specialized training and completed a competitive advanced microsurgery fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA.


Dr. Rendon is one of few plastic surgeons in the country to hold both M.D. and Ph.D. degrees. His Ph.D. studies were funded by the National Institutes of Health and resulted in multiple scientific publications as well as national and international presentations. Dr. Rendon’s time studying burns and wound healing drew him to the field of plastic surgery. During his residency, Dr. Rendon received a grant from The Plastic Surgery Foundation to further investigate scar formation. He has authored several manuscripts and book chapters on a variety of subjects, including:

  • Wound healing
  • Facial rejuvenation
  • Aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery
