Gabrielle Pino (Troisi) is a Connecticut State and National Board-Certified Physician Assistant. We welcomed Gabrielle to the practice in 2013 as our aesthetic specialist to provide injectable services such as BOTOX Cosmetic®, Dysport®, and various dermal fillers.

Determined by real patient nominations, this honor recognizes Gabrielle as one of the top injectors in the United States. In our practice, patients come from all parts of Connecticut seeking Gabrielle’s injectable expertise.

She uses this knowledge to precisely place BOTOX and dermal fillers to achieve youthful-looking, attractive results. She works closely with all patients to preserve and further enhance their natural beauty, so they leave feeling comforted and confident in their own beautiful skin.
Growing up, Gabrielle always had an interest in the medical field and wanted to choose a profession that allowed for a good work-life balance. Her desire to treat patients and have some flexibility in career choices made becoming a PA the perfect path.
Gabrielle completed her undergraduate studies with honors at The University of Michigan and received a master’s degree in Health Sciences and Physician Assistant Studies at The George Washington University.

Read why patients trust and keep coming back to our RealSelf Most Loved Injector Gabrielle (Gabby) Pino:
"I appreciate Gabby's willingness to spend time educating me on all of the options for treating my face without surgery. She listened to my concerns and focused on my needs. She formulated a long-term plan in order to allow for the most natural improvement over time. Excellent results were delivered!"
“Gabby, I love my lips!”
“Where has this cheek filler been hiding all of my life?!”
“Gabby has a calm and nurturing nature. She is gentle with injections and made me feel so good about myself! She even adjusted her hours to accommodate my complicated scheduling requests.”
“My appointment with Gabrielle at Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield was an amazing experience! From the time I walked in the door, I was greeted by front desk staff and Dr. Sofer himself. The setting was professional, and Gabrielle was very thorough. She made me feel very comfortable about having my first BOTOX treatment and offered a follow up visit in case I needed it. I returned 5 months later and had the same experience. Thank you for making me feel as young on the outside as I feel on the inside!”
Role at Plastic Surgery Center of Fairfield, CT
Gabrielle works closely with Dr. Sofer to help patients understand their surgical and non-surgical options for facial rejuvenation. She feels it is important to collaborate with a board-certified physician who works in the same field, so they can share ideas, refer patients to one another, and offer a wide range of services.
Gabrielle particularly appreciates facial balance and understands that each area of the face requires special care to achieve subtle and natural-looking results. While she enjoys administering all injections, she especially loves helping people address issues of the cheeks and lips. She is impressed with the results of collagen stimulators like Sculptra® and feels this type of product is underutilized, with the potential to benefit nearly all patients. Her favorite “I didn’t know I needed it until I had it” treatments include temple fillers, lower lip fillers, and BOTOX in the chin.
In her spare time, Gabrielle love to spend time with her husband and daughter, visiting family in Michigan, and regularly opening her house to friends for get-togethers.
