Breast Augmentation

Great patient care, good explanation of procedure.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Carlino is very knowledgeable and has an excellent staff.

Breast Lift

Great doctor and anesthesiologist!

Arm Lift

I obtained the results I was hoping for in the reduction of my upper arms. Less pain than I expected and fairly fast healing of scars. I am hoping for even less scarring as the months preceded.

Breast Implant Revision

[Highly satisfied with] Both the expertise and bedside manner of Dr. Carlino.

Breast Lift

Dr. Carlino is the best surgeon. Very kind and skilled. Courtney was available to help whenever I had a question. Would absolutely recommend.

Face Lift

I was informed of everything that was going to be done during the procedure. The staff was courteous and professional. Dr. Carlino was so kind and comforting to relieve my nervousness before the surgery. He was very professional. [Single best thing is...] Staff being so nice.

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Carlino went above an beyond to make sure I was completely satisfied. His staff was very professional and made me feel at ease at all times. I never felt uncomfortable asking him any questions! He is great!

Breast Augmentation

I’m very satisfied with my breast augmentation because the breasts are set just the way I wanted them to set, I love the volume and everything about my breast augmentation.

Mommy Makeover

Great staff, wonderful surgeon. Great results with wonderful follow up. Dr. Carlino is a gem!

Breast Reconstruction

1. Dr. Carlino and Courtney have literally become my best friends and biggest advocates. 2. Dr. Carlino took time out of his personal life on a Saturday to FaceTime me on how to change my wound dressings. 3. All the staff is excellent!

Mommy Makeover

Dr. Carlino and Staff, Courtney and all the nurses involved in my case are exceptional. Dr. C has the absolutely best bedside manner I have EVER experienced. I Will be coming in for more procedures if ever needed. I highly recommend them. I am, so far pleased with my results even though I am still in healing process. I can't say enough great things about them.

Neck Lift

Great MD care and staff follow up.


The results were not what I normally get - I don't know if that was due to my body or the placement, amount, etc. but I used to get a very good result when Amy was doing injections. I still adore Dr. C and not upset with him, just disappointed to go out for nonessential treatment & spend $ for lackluster results.

Injectable Fillers

Dr. Carlino is very friendly, relaxed and makes you feel safe and confident that you will get good results no matter what procedure you are having done.

Breast Reduction

I felt safe even during COVID. The procedure was thoroughly explained prior. I never felt rushed. All my questions and concerns were addressed. I was able to email the nurses after if had a question. They responded quickly. I was extremely satisfied with my results. I felt my surgeon listened to my concerns/desires and cared about my experience and results.

Tummy Tuck

The entire staff was so kind, caring, and amazing. I was amazed when the doctor called me personally to talk about COVID and the impact on the scheduling. They put me at ease right before the surgery as I was very nervous. The results are amazing. I lost 180lb about eight years ago and the extra skin was very difficult and painful to live with. Now it’s gone and I feel and look amazing! Thank you Dr. Carlino and staff! The results were better than I ever dreamed of.

Treatment / Procedure

The double chin is pretty much gone - reduced to one

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Great experience with the doctor and was very happy with my Botox.

Brazilian Butt Lift

There were no surprises. Exactly what Dr. Carlino and the nurses relayed to me prior to surgery is exactly what happened and how things progressed. I am happy with the procedure, I am finally happy with the way that I look! [Single best thing is...] Recovery time was minimal.
