She is a board-certified General Surgeon by the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery, a board-certified Cosmetic Surgeon by the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, and a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery.
Dr. Vega completed her general surgery residency in New York City at the Flushing Hospital Medical Center in Flushing, Queens.

She says that she is excited to be a resident of the Queen City!
When she’s not in the operating room, Dr. Vega enjoys reading, playing tennis, going on road trips with her puppies, sampling local cuisine, mentoring medical students, and running her own injectables practice.
