Breast Augmentation

Dr. Tantillo was very patient and informative in all meetings about the procedure. Any questions I emailed were promptly answered. He had wonderful bedside manner, as did the nurse who took care of me on the day of my surgery. I am very happy with my results and have recommended him as a surgeon to anyone in the area who expresses interest in breast augmentation surgery.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Tantillo is amazing. He listened thoroughly to what I wanted, and then asked me questions and gave me options to help me achieve the results I was hoping for. He also took the time to answer all my questions before and after surgery without ever making me feel like I was bothering him. I am very happy with my results and with the care that I received from Dr. Tantillo and his staff.

Breast Augmentation

I was so afraid of having surgery done, but had wanted a breast augmentation for 4 years. I had gone in to see Dr Tantillo because I liked his results online. I can't say enough good things about my experience. Any question I had was answered fully, even if I emailed on off hours. When I was on the operating table I had a panic attack and the nurse came right over to help calm my nerves, and Dr Tantillo helped me feel safe and comfortable. My recovery was easy and I didn't even need my pain meds. I have since referred four friends to Dr Tantillo and everyone has had a great experience as well. I wanted natural results, and Dr Tantillo exceeded my expectations with my results. I have 310cc teardrop implants and they look and feel so natural. I am beyond thrilled with my experience and would come back to Dr Tantillo without hesitation for any future cosmetic procedures

Breast Augmentation

I appreciate all of the consults (as many as I needed!) and the great communication from doctor and nurses. I am very happy with the outcome- perfectly sized, shaped breasts for my build ( doctor suggested size was perfect). Minimal scarring. Fast recovery. Doc called to check in. Great experience.

Breast Augmentation

Scars are above and beyond. I was told that they wouldn't be worse going in for a revision surgery. They are 100 times worse now. Nipple placement is still low even after a revision surgery. I still have bruising over a half of a year later. I have spent at least 10,000 between surgery, revision surgery, scar patches, arnica gel, mederma and the two hr car trips every couple weeks since my initial surgery a yr ago. I have complained to the staff and they basically tell me that because I signed for the procedures I'm stuck with botched breasts. They wouldn't fix it or compensate for it. They tried to send me for lazer treatment but that company wanted 250.00 just to make an appointment.. all in all I spent thousands more then I had I'm still in debt over my surgeries and I am beyond embarrassed with the results. I feel that a surgeon should be proud of the work he does and if he isn't he should do everything he can to fix the problem.
