About Me

I am the director of the Body Contouring Program at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. I chose to specialize in plastic surgery because I enjoy the creativity and artistic aspects involved in the practice. It’s immensely gratifying to be able to help my patients achieve their desired outcomes, using methods that are both practical and safe.

I regularly perform procedures including body contouring, abdominoplasty, breast reduction, breast lift, breast augmentation, liposuction, thighplasty, brachioplasty, and buttock augmentation with fat grafting. I also have expertise in lipedema surgery. My research is focused on developing innovative techniques to continuously improve body contouring procedures and patient outcomes.

After several years in private practice, I chose to switch to an academic health center because I was excited about the opportunity to teach the future generation of doctors. It’s a privilege to help guide medical students and residents in the art of plastic surgery.

Ohio State is a dynamic institution filled with opportunities and I’m proud to be here. Our medical teams have access to a wide array of experts, educational support and cutting-edge technologies. The exceptional resources and commitment to excellence embodied by everyone here at Ohio State translates to improved patient care.

In my free time, I enjoy painting, hiking and biking.

    Very caring

    A lot of time spent going over details that could have been addressed prior to my visit.

  • Reviewed on Jan 08, 2024

    Based on the outcomes of surgery and interactions in the office, I can attest with certainty that Dr. Viennas is a very skilled and knowledgeable surgeon. I feel that he truly cares about helping the patients in his care. I am thankful to have been under his care. I have had ongoing problems with recurrent abdominal hernias. I feel that the services OSU and Dr. Viennas, in collaboration with Dr. Poulose, provides for this particular condition is excellent in every way. Prior to coming to OSU I received care that resulted in very poor outcomes. I am beyond thankful for the abdominal core health program at OSU and all of the services collaboratively working toward helping me get well and stay well.
