Dr. Christopher Manios

Dr. Christopher Manios has been serving the cosmetic needs of patients since 2009.  He believes that therapies should be individualized to the needs of the patients but also stresses that patients should be educated as much as possible about the current advances in facial aesthetics. 

Dr. Christopher is a native of Houston, Texas. He attended college at Washington University in St. Louis and graduated with honors with a degree in History, Biochemistry, and Art History.  After graduating, Dr. Christopher attended medical school at Temple University where he graduated at the top of his class and was mentored in plastic surgery by Dr. Joseph Serletti at the University of Pennsylvania. After earning his degree, he then went on to Harvard University in their combined plastic surgery residency program as well as Stanford University’s orthopedic program. 

Dr Christopher believes that facial aesthetics and the use of Botox and dermal fillers are the intertwining of the sciences with the arts. In order to provide the best results, he believes that an injector should have an artist’s eye to ensure patient satisfaction and happiness.
