Breast Reconstruction

Dr. Bolitho and his entire team have been nothing short of amazing. Everyone in his office is caring and attentive. I felt like I was in good hands from the moment I met Dr. Bolitho and have not been disappointed. Would recommend him to anyone needing/wanting a top notch Plastic Surgeon. I am halfway through a breast reconstruction due to a triple negative breast cancer. As of now, I've been most positively affected by the treatment of Dr. Bolitho and his team. I think the end result will be beautiful as I've healed well and have had zero complications.

Face Lift

Awesome practice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Awesome results!!!!!!!! More confident with looks. 110% better

Breast Reconstruction

The doctor made me feel comfortable and listened to what I wanted my outcome to be. A very modest/natural looking breast lift for my body type. Did not want anything outrageous. Dr. Bolitho was great. My healing time was remarkable and easy due to the doctors skilled surgery.

Breast Reduction


Tummy Tuck

My case was not typical due to an existing gall bladder scar, but Dr. Bolitho was able to work around that issue to give a very good result. He also suggested back liposuction which helped immensely with the overall result. He is a very gentle and skilled practitioner, and his patient coordinator and nurses are absolutely top-notch. I felt very well cared for, and am immensely pleased with the results. According to others, I look fantastic". I now like my body, whereas I used to hate it, so it has given me confidence to start dating again, and to wear different types of clothes. It has also changed my shape enough that I can now compete in dressage competitions with confidence, whereas I was afraid to do so previously. I LIKE myself!"

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Bolitho is extremely talented and very caring. He listens to his patients needs and wants, then makes a game plan to achieve the highest and best results. He is extremely genuine and honest. I trust him and his staff and above all felt totally at ease, safe, and in the best hands with Dr. B and his wonderful and caring nurses and coordinators. Excellent and can't say enough about what a wonderful and caring Doctor, he truly is the best! I'm very happy with the results of my surgery. I had fat transfer on my cheeks from the lyposuction that was performed on my thighs. It looks so natural and made a huge difference in my appearance. I also had a breast implant replacement and lift which came out super natural. My breasts have a better and more natural shape. Plus they feel much better and not incapsulated. Very happy!!

I need to have my issues resolved before I would ever feel comfortable returning. I hope that they can be resolved. I have great confidence in Dr. Bolitho.

Dr. B is great. He's very caring and makes you feel at ease prior to surgery. The outcome of my lower bleph was fantastic. I wish I would have had the surgery sooner. Dr. B's staff is amazing too. They are very attentive to you and really seem to genuinely care about your needs and after care. I highly recommend that you call him for a consultation. Dr. B's credentials are impeccable and I believe you will be quite impressed.
