“Dr. Moynahan made me extremely comfortable in my skin. I love the fact that I can go somewhere 10 years later and people say that I look younger now. No one knows I had work done – I have no scars, no pulling around the eyes – and no one believes I’m 50.”

JOHN, 50


“Dr. Moynahan has taken 15 years off my face! I had a face lift and eye lift in 2003, followed by Sculptra a year-and-a-half later. My friends used to say I looked so tired, but not anymore. I feel and look great! I’ve got a perky, more youthful appearance. Through it all, I’ve had a really positive experience with Dr. Moynahan, the RNs and her very nice office staff. I’ve referred several people to her. She’s not only a great surgeon; she’s so easy to talk to. I feel relaxed with her. After just a few times in her office, I felt like I had known her for years.”



“We think so highly of Dr. Moynahan. She respects your privacy, and is very caring and empathizing. She has a wonderful, easy-going personality. Although she’s extremely busy, you’d never know it when she walks into the room to see you. She makes time for you. She has an incredible constitution that way. Everybody in the office is quite obliging, and very nice. They treated us very well.”

SCOTT, 64 & JANE, 62

Our Objective Is To Improve Your Appearance – Not Radically Alter It

Dr. Moynahan’s Philosophy 

“I strive to create a close relationship that is based on mutual esteem, trust, and confidentiality. My office staff has been carefully selected to ensure courtesy, privacy, discretion, and comfort. Both the New York City and Middlebury, CT offices offer a relaxed, professional, and safe atmosphere.

I am fully aware that meeting my patients’ cosmetic surgery goals transcends aesthetic modification; the results include the deep sense of satisfaction and self-confidence that engender an enhanced quality of life.”
– Dr. Paula A. Moynahan

Meet The Surgeon

Dr. Moynahan is among a distinguished group of women who have achieved double board certification –American Board of Surgery (ABS) and the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) – and is a member of numerous medical and plastic surgery societies. She is an attending physician at Lenox Hill Hospital and Manhattan Ear, Nose and Throat Hospital (MEETH) in New York City as well as Waterbury Hospital, Saint Mary’s Hospital and Naugatuck Valley Surgical Center in Waterbury, CT.

Dr. Moynahan has authored numerous articles and books and has participated in many plastic & cosmetic surgery research projects. She has lectured extensively at prestigious universities in this country and in China,Pakistan, and Europe. Dr. Moynahan has been recognized as a leading surgeon in Strathmore’s Who’s Who, Consumer Research Council of America, America’s Registry of Outstanding Professionals, Top 100 Irish Americans of the Year- The Best and the Brightest Irish in America, The American Business Women’s Association, and has served as a Past President of The New York Regional Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons.

Dr. Moynahan was a pioneer in the art and science of liposuction. Before lipectomy became routine in this country, Dr. Moynahan studied under Dr. Yves Illouz, the surgeon innovator of this procedure in Paris. Her extensive research enabled her to anticipate advances in liposuction technique and apply them in her practice to achieve maximum benefits for her patients. Dr. Moynahan’s humanitarian efforts include her participation in and support of concerted efforts to relieve the plight of underprivileged children.

Over her preeminent career, Dr. Paula A. Moynahan has successfully treated thousands of patients (including many celebrities) in her New York City and Middlebury, CT offices. Both locations offer a wide array of cosmetic procedures for men and women. Surgical procedures include facial plastic surgery; breast augmentation, reduction, and lifting; abdominoplasty (tummy tuck); and liposuction (contouring of the face and body). Minimally invasive procedures include laser treatments, Botox, and fillers.

Is Plastic Surgery Right for You?

While cosmetic surgery effectively reshapes and improves contours of the face and body, it has the added advantage of bolstering self-satisfaction, emotional security, and confidence. A healthy body and mind result in a feeling of optimism and a heightened sense of well-being.

BUYER BEWARE! The massive proliferation of social media has produced advertising on sites like Instagram and Snapchat by doctors who might not be board certified or qualified to perform plastic surgery. Be aware of those who would utilize dangerous technology without significant qualifications and expertise to lure the patient to substandard surgery and allied treatments. For the patient and the medical industry, this misleading type of promotion is confusing at best and dangerous at worst. Beware and be smart: The plastic surgery-trained surgeon is fundamentally concerned with educating the patient so that the decision is well-informed and based on medical science. Use only physicians with board-certified plastic surgery accreditation by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons.

Getting to know one another

We will meet for a relaxed consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals. We will discuss surgery and minimally invasive procedures, reasonable expectations, personal values and beliefs, and any other questions or concerns that you have. I will always be guided by your needs and will advise you based on your goals and realistic expectations. The close and enduring plastic surgeon/patient relationship is fundamental to high-quality results and a holistic medical practice.

The Surgery

Your procedure will be performed with exacting attention to detail to ensure results that give you a natural, rested and refreshed the look. Our agreed upon objective will be to improve your appearance – not radically alter it.
