Breast Augmentation

Because was way beterraba than i could ever imagine. It made me more confident and happier about my breasts

Breast Reduction

I thought Dr. Bartlett was very professional and sensitive to what i wished to achieve. he made the surgery and recovery pain free also. i am much more comfortable, no more rashes, and fit into clothing properly therefore have much more confidence.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Lots of information given in writing; welcoming staff; got prescriptions ahead of time; detailed and friendly surgeon; good understanding of what to expect. Excellent surgical results.

Ear Surgery

My son had ear surgery and the staff was excellent at working with a 5 year old boy who has a short attention span as well as lots of nervous energy walking into the hospital. Everyone was fantastic and made him feel at ease. I am grateful that we had such an amazing experience. Thank you to everyone!!!! My son didn't know his ears stuck out before the surgery but now he comments on how much he likes his ears. From a 5 years old, that is priceless.

Breast Implant Revision

Staff friendly and informative. Dr. Bartlett did a great job. Had prior augmentation issues to rectify and the results are amazing. He's a very skilled surgeon with a great bed-side manner! The breast augmentation looks extremely natural. The size is more proportionate to my body. The silicone is a big improvement to the saline. Very satisfied


I can breathe better and do not snore / breathe heavily at night. Felt the surgeon was short on time and did not sit with me long enough to fully answer all my questions. He was always on his way out if I did not immediately have a next question ready to ask. I also felt rushed out of the surgery room when I had barely gained consciousness post anesthesia. Finally, I have noticed extra pimples and more nose hair since my surgery. Otherwise, I had a good experience.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Dr.Bartlett is amazingly kind and respectful as were all of his staff. I had a great experience with my surgery and am thrilled with the results. So grateful for the whole experience ans highly recommend to others.

Male Breast Reduction

Respectful team, great results.


Dr Bartlett show me what he was going to do and then did it! It's made me more confident in my appearance

Breast Augmentation

Dr.Bartlett was very professional and answered all questions and concerns I had. I am able to feel like I felt pre pregnancy which has made me feel much more confident.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Dr. Bartlett has many years of experience performing this specific surgery, but he also continues to keep up to date with new techniques and he pioneers the drainless method for a vastly more comfortable recovery. This combination of experience and continual self-improvement is ideal. You want the guy permanently altering your body to be a perfectionist. His aesthetic results are great, and he is careful to remove all the breast tissue so there won't be long-term health risks. (Some surgeons I researched don't!) Everyone on staff was respectful, considerate, and well-informed. He's got operating privileges with Beth Israel, which is the best hospital for trans folk. I'm so so so much happier now. My body is how it's supposed to be and I don't have to spend time and effort and sanity to fight it. The scars healed very well and don't restrict movement or have any physical drawbacks; they're nicely placed, and sensation is good. They are still a bit red, but that will fade with time and who the heck cares?

Breast Augmentation

Everyone I dealt with was wonderful. I always felt comfortable and informed. Prior to surgery, I heard Dr. Bartlett was the best, and I definitely agree. I am 100% happy with my results. I am more confident and feel like this is always how I should have looked. I wish I had done the surgery sooner.


I find Dr Bartlett very professional doctor who as I felt also has perfected his skills and knowledge over the years. He was very careful if I really understand what will be done and how the result will look. Super attentive to every detail and very best possible solution; it was very pleasant and easy to communicate with the doctor and all his team. But overall the result speaks about itself. I love it! every detail we spoke through is improved the way we wanted and even better yet it still looks very natural. Thank you for amazing work!

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Pre-surgery I was given all of the information needed. Post-surgery, the nurse was excellent about answering my numerous questions. I am much more comfortable in my own body now. I used to wear a binder whenever I was awake, which was uncomfortable and sometimes borderline dangerous (like when exercising). I no longer have to do this in order to feel more at home in my own skin. I am very happy with the results and I am sure it will just get better as my scars start to settle.

Gender Reassignment Surgery

The nursing staff was very respectful. One of the nurses was very respectful and understanding about my questions in the recovery process. (Sarah)

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Dr. Bartlett was attentive and had an amazing bedside manner. I think he did a beautiful job and I'm incredibly satisfied with my results, especially as they begin to heal further. I also really liked the short time it took from initial contact with his surgical team to getting the surgery--only 3 months! Another office had me schedule a year and a half out to get this surgery. Thank you, Dr. Bartlett. The care and relief of my post-surgical visit at one week out. Dr. Bartlett came in to examine me and said that I was poised to have a perfect result" from this surgery. Not to mention the relief that came with finally getting the bandages off and seeing my new chest."

Gender Reassignment Surgery

Dr. Bartlett was very kind to my son and us. He really explained everything to us so that we understood what the procedure would be. My son felt like he could truly be himself now. He cried when he woke up and said it was the best day of his life.

Eyelid Surgery

Eyelid Surgery

Gender Reassignment Surgery

- The staff at Dr. Bartlett's office were always very friendly and answered all my questions. - they used the right name and pronouns for me- dr. Bartlett himself is such a great guy and super knowledgeable.- I just felt very comfortable - I have been wanting to get top surgery for years, and to finally have it done is the most surreal feeling ever. - The single best thing about getting this surgery done is that I finally feel comfortable in my own body and I can't thank Dr. Bartlett enough for that.
