Dr. Gentile In The Media
Dr. Hervé Gentile is a Plastic Surgeon specializing in Cosmetic Surgery of the Face, Nose, Breast & Body Contouring and in Cosmetic Non-Surgical treatments such as Botox,
Fillers, external Ultrasound, etc. He offers personalized care and is one of the first triple board-certified plastic surgeons. For the last two decades, his practice has been devoted
100% to Cosmetic Surgery and Cosmetic Medicine.

Dr. Hervé Gentile’s interest in plastic surgery matured very early while at the University of Padua Medical School in Italy.  The University of Padua is the second oldest medical
school in the world and also where the first woman in the world, Elena Cornaro Piscopia, in 1678 was granted a doctorate degree (in Philosophy).  The emblem chosen by the
American Board of Plastic Surgery is that of Gaspare Tagliacozzi who laid the cornerstone of modern plastic surgery by reconstructing patients noses in nearby Bologna and
published in 1597 his treatise “De Curtorum Chirurgia per Insitionem”. This was the first textbook ever written in Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Hervé Gentile completed his prerequisite General Surgery and his Ear, Nose and Throat/Head & Neck Surgery residency at the University of Maryland. He then returned to
Italy where he obtained further education by completing a US approved Fellowship in Cosmetic and Facial Plastic Surgery with Professor L. Ponti in Rome. Dr. Ponti was a world
renowned Plastic Surgeon and an early pioneer in cosmetic surgery.

Dr. Hervé Gentile moved to Corpus Christi where he practiced Facial Plastic Surgery until he started a residency in Plastic Surgery at the Medical College of Georgia (MCG). Dr.
Hervé Gentile still holds an active teaching position as Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery (Plastic Surgery) at MCG. The Medical College of Georgia was the founding school of
today’s Georgia Health Sciences University.

Dr. Hervé Gentile has a genuine love for plastic surgery and all of the arts since his early teens. He was motivated to seek a career in plastic surgery because of his love of art
and he considers a privilege to be able to do what he does. In addition, Dr. Gentile is not just one who appreciates paintings and sculptures but one who creates them and is an
accomplished painter and sculptor.

Dr. Hervé Gentile has been consulted and featured on many TV stations, magazines, books, newspapers and radio stations. He has been a speaker on cosmetic surgery at
numerous regional, national and international meetings in the US as well as many foreign countries. He provides 25+ years of experience to patients in South Texas as well as
across the country and internationally. He is recognized as one of the plastic surgeons to be featured in the book “The Beauty Makers” and he was also selected as a
contributing expert in the book “BE YOUR BEST – A Comprehensive Guide to Aesthetic Plastic Surgery “.

Dr. Hervé Gentile has been named by CASTLE CONNOLLY as one of AMERICA’S TOP DOCTORS in Plastic Surgery, a reference guide (click for the guide) of physicians elected by
his peers. He also has received the prestigious honor of being selected by his peers for inclusion in BEST DOCTORS IN AMERICA® in the specialty of Plastic Surgery (subspecialties
of Facial Aesthetic Surgery and Body Cosmetic Surgery). Best Doctors in America® was founded in 1989 by doctors at Harvard Medical School to initially provide their families
with the best medical care. The only way to be recognized as one of the Best Doctors in America® is for a doctor to earn high marks for clinical ability from his or her peers.  This
is accomplished by such a rigorous and impartial review where only the top 5% of all doctors in the nation are voted to be included on the Best Doctors list. Dr. Gentile was
elected Top Doctor by U.S. News and World Report and also recognized as one of “America’s Top Surgeons” and one of “America’s Top Plastic Surgeons” by the Consumer
Research Council of America.

Dr. Hervé Gentile also shares his knowledge and expertise with the international community and is a host to visiting young international plastic surgeons.

Dr. Hervé Gentile has performed thousands of procedures in his surgical career resulting in enhanced quality of life for his patients. He currently devotes all his practice to
cosmetic surgery. Dr. Hervé Gentile for many years has found time to dedicate to the community by performing reconstructive birth defects surgery, especially cleft lip and cleft
palate repairs, at Driscoll Children’s Hospital. Dr. Gentile also covered all of South Texas “The Valley” by holding a Plastic Surgery Clinic in McAllen, TX devoting a day each
month for the children who could not travel to the Corpus Christi Children’s Plastic Clinic.

"The Top Plastic Surgeons
in America dedicated to
achieving b
eautiful Breast
Surgery Results
"
"I NOW FEEL PERFECT"!


"Okay, so the only information I knew about breast augmentations came from forums I had
read online. Those were helpful but at the same time not so helpful because results vary from
person to person. So I came into Dr. Gentile with an open mind about everything figuring that
he is the expert and he would know what will work perfectly with my body. He was straight
forward and to the point. He chose what type, size and placement would work best with my
body and informed me of all the ins and outs of the surgery very thoroughly. I am completely
happy with my results and I now feel perfect thanks to Dr Gentile. If I could give advice to
anyone coming in for a breast augmentation (or anything) it would be to come in with an open
mind and let Dr Gentile make the decisions because he is clearly an expert at what he does".
