Plastic Surgery


brow lift

Dr. Vanek performs a brow lift as an endoscopic procedure: a small camera and specialized tools are inserted through tiny incisions, and the entire procedure is performed beneath the skin. Dr. Vanek’s research background and training have allowed him to be at the forefront of medical technology.

Eyelid Surgery

The eyelids are extremely complex and delicate structures that are vital to the preservation of sight. The eyelids protect the eye and spread tears across the surface of the eye. The position and contours of the eyelids are important features of a normal facial appearance. 


Dr. Vanek is a master sculptor of the human body. A board-certified general and plastic surgeon, a bio-chemist, and researcher for the FDA and NIH, Dr. Vanek knows how the body works, and how to manipulate its structures to produce aesthetically pleasing results for his patients.

Ear Surgery

The goal of otoplasty is to make the person less self-conscious about their ears. It can enable patients to abandon hairstyles that camouflage their ears, allow them to wear baseball caps, up-dos, or a short hair style, and empower them to feel and look very natural in their own skin.

Chin Surgery

Genioplasty, or chin surgery, is a procedure for improving the aesthetic appearance of the chin by altering its projection. An incision is made inside the lip near the jaw line so the mandible can be shaped to reduce prominence. For chin augmentation, an implant is used to increase the projection.

Renuvion For Face

J-Plasma Renuvion is a revolutionary minimally invasive procedure that uses helium plasma energy on the underside of the skin to instantly tighten and rejuvenate anywhere on the face and body. 


Rhinoplasty is the term for the aesthetic reshaping of the nose. Because of his training and experience, Dr. Vanek also offers septoplasty and turbinate surgery, which are procedures to correct breathing problems like snoring. Septoplasty is the term for the repair of a deviated or deformed septum (the cartilage and tissue between the nostrils). 

Lip Enhancement

Whether you have fine lines around your mouth from sun damage, aging or animation, or just from how you are genetically determined, these lines may be treated in various ways with the latest technologies at Mentor Plastic Surgery & MedSpa.


brava fat transfer

Our bodies have a natural mechanism for growth and healing. When body tissue is placed under sustained tension it will grow. This principle is known as “tissue expansion” and has been used for over 30 years by physicians in various reconstructive procedures. The BRAVA system is an external tissue expander.

Breast Asymmetry

Breast asymmetry means that one of your breasts doesn’t look like the other. If you have uneven breasts – that is, one breast is slightly different in size and/or projection than the other breast – you might be relieved to know that about 90% of women have the same problem. 

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a specialty of Dr. Vanek, who performs aesthetic operations five days a week at his practice. Dr. Vanek has been providing exceptional care to patients from Akron, Cleveland, and Mentor since 1996. Every procedure is unique to you. 

Breast Lift

“When a woman who is dismayed with the physical structure of her breasts comes to see me, there is no exercise or cream or device that can make her have perkier breasts,” explains Dr. Vanek. “And what I love is being able to do a surgical procedure with small risks that can make her look the way she wants to look. It’s just a great feeling.”

Breast Reconstruction

“Breast reconstruction surgery is the most gratifying procedure that I perform because it, literally, renews the self-confidence and self-image of each woman who has faced breast cancer. It is the very reason I became a plastic surgeon. Whether you are recently diagnosed and have yet to have your mastectomy on one or both sides, you recently had surgery, or even if it’s been years since your mastectomy was performed, breast reconstruction surgery can bring you great personal satisfaction.” – Dr. Paul Vanek

Breast reduction

Breast reduction is often sought out to reduce physical problems such as neck, shoulder and back pain, but its also sometimes an emotional discomfort such as drawing unwanted attention. This video shows how the procedure is performed and how re-shaping is obtained for beautiful results.

Breast Revision

Breast revision is a challenging problem. Having the kind of training and experience that I have enables me to explain to patients that there is more than one way to achieve an improvement. Because you have had previous surgery and there are restrictions on what may be possible, we’ll have to prioritize and set realistic expectations. 


brazillian butt lift

The Brazilian Butt Lift is really an injection of the person’s own fat, which results in a lift.

Cellulite Treatment

Dr. Vanek is one of the first physicians in Northeasty Cleveland, Ohio to offer cellulite treatment with a revolutionary new technology known as VASERsmooth™. For the 90% of women who have suffered with the appearance of cellulite, the wait for a “miracle” treatment is finally over thanks to this groundbreaking new procedure.

Dupuytren’s Contracture “Crooked Finger“

The clinical use of this biochemical agent involves an injection performed in the office to digest the cord collagen. Patients who have contracture at the MCP (the knuckle) or at the PIP (the first joint) from Dupuytren’s fibrosis are candidates for the injection therapy. The fibrosis in the palm is not as responsive to injection therapy and may require excisional surgery using tourniquet anesthesia. Patients who have the finger contracture can be injected monthly up to three times. 


A labiaplasty procedure is an excellent choice if you have overly large labia that cause discomfort or embarrassment. If your labia cause frequent or recurrent rashes or if there is significant size difference between your labia, then you may be a candidate for labiaplasty.


Fatgrafting (lipofilling) has been performed in medical applications for centuries. There is currently a revival in the modern procedure of Lipofilling due to ongoing scientific research and recent significant technical innovations, coupled with the growing number of patients desiring cosmetic surgery.


Because of VASER’s versatility, Dr. Vanek has been able to replace extensive surgery and long recovery times with a single VASER session.”There are some patients who come in thinking they need a facelift, but I am able to give them the results they want and love by performing facial VASER Lipo,” explains Dr. Vanek, who is also a bio-chemist and researcher who has participated in NIH and FDA studies.

Mommy Makeover

“A Mommy Makeover is really about restoring some of the physical attributes that you had before you had children, and doing it in a way that works within your schedule,” says Dr. Vanek, a board-certified general and plastic surgeon who was named “Lake County’s Favorite Plastic Surgeon” by the News Herald in 201 and “Best of the Best” in 2013.

Tummy Tuck

An abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck, is a procedure designed to contour the torso by tightening the abdominal muscle wall while removing excess skin that results from dieting or post-pregnancy weight loss. An incision is made within the “bikini line,” and the skin is elevated to expose the abdominal muscles.

Vaser Liposelection®

With the use of ultrasound technology, Vaser Liposelection has a shorter recovery time and reduced bruising than traditional liposuction
