Local Hampton Roads plastic surgeon Peter Vonu, MD, received his medical degree and completed his surgical residency at the Medical College of Ohio. During his plastic surgery residency at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Dr. Vonu discovered his greatest interest was in cosmetic procedures and went on to continue his training in cosmetic surgery in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

At the age of five, Dr. Vonu was inspired by his pediatrician and decided to become a physician. He never wavered from that choice. When asked why he chose plastic surgery as a specialty, Dr. Vonu said, “It offers me the luxury of being both a physician and an artist. I enjoy developing a vision with my patient and then bringing it to fruition.” This collaborative approach is much appreciated by his patients. He takes his obligations as a doctor very seriously, wanting to give his patients the best possible result while minimizing their exposure to risks.
Dr. Vonu shares his surgical skills by volunteering with the University of Florida’s outreach program. He also visited Angola, Africa, where he worked with patients correcting congenital malformations.

An avid sportsman, Dr. Vonu can be frequently found sharing his love of the outdoors with his three children: Chelsea, Peter, and Trevor. Their Yorktown home is the perfect setting for his family’s love of water sports.
