Breast Implant Removal
I did as much research as I possibly could and my husband also went with me to meet Dr. Darrow. I feel that I have the very best Surgeon here in Massachusetts to do my explant. He is very well known and respected, and took time to make me feel comfortable. I appreciated having a good understanding of the process that he would use, and I know that my husband appreciated it as well. He removes the implants "en bloc", which was most important as far as I was concerned. We liked him very, very much. Helen who does all of the contact and scheduling is just a pleasure to talk to; very, very nice and understanding. I have to say that I am really not nervous - it's time. My implants are only 165cc so am hoping that I will look acceptable without a lift, as it is not in the cards for me at the present time.

so far Helen at the office has been a peach. Whenever i call she is polite, and very willing to help. Because i have to travel 2.5 hours to get there i appreciate how accomodative she has been with scheduling times for me. I also have restrictions as far as getting time off from work and i have two kids in school and daycare so she has been nothing but sweet. hoping it stays that way!

Tummy Tuck Revision
Online and through friends trying to accomplish similiar goals. After a tough recovery, a friend recommended Dr Jeffrey Darrow. He said he was very skilled, knowledgeable, and had great bedside manner. He was right! After checking him out online and meeting him in person, I knew it was a revision worth making. He spoke to me about all of my concerns, what he would be able to accomplish, and told me how the procedure would go from begining to end. The tummy tuck came out great. I am so thankful. His staff, secretary, and the whole experience was great. I hope this review helps many people find the right surgeon. I couldn't be pleased enough. Thank you very much Dr. Darrow. I feel good about my body again.

I was referred to Dr. Darrow through another plastic surgeon in Connecticut. Dr. Darrow and his secretary, nurses, and anesthesiologist made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Darrow is extremely knowledgeable. I did extensive research before my consultation. Dr. Darrow was able to answer each and every question with a detailed answer.

He came recommended by a friend who had undergone breast reduction surgery. I met with several surgeons which were also recommended by friends but in the end felt that Dr. Darrow was the best option. I was slow to make a decision and met with Dr. Darrow several times over the span of 12 months before making the final decision to have the surgery. He and his staff were outstanding throughout the entire process. Dr Darrow and his staff worked closely with me to chose the right shape and size of my implants and make the experience as comfortable and easy as possible. I highly recommend Dr. Darrow if you are contemplating breast surgery.

Tummy Tuck, Upper and Lower Back Liposuction, Breast Reduction and Lifting = Absolutely Worth It! - Boston, MA
Posted by Sabina5746
After weight loss I still was not happy with my body because of that mushroom like tummy,I just wanted my tummy become flat, get rid of excess fat on my back and sagging skin on my inner thighs. After delivery my whole body shape changed and I haven't seen and felt myself beautiful ever after...well till i had my surgery done:) Well, first of all I want to tell you about my MAGICIAN, yes he is a magician!!! First visit was MORE THAN ENOUGH TO DECIDE TO GO THROUGH WITH THIS DOCTOR!!! + i had met another surgeons before Dr.Darrow but none of them made me feel so confident and safe . When I explained him my situation that I weighted 258 lbs and in last 3 months lost 53 pounds(at the day of surgery i was 205 lbs,) he asked me about my desired weight , my goal, and as I'm not really good in converting kg to pounds i told him by mistake 195 instead of 175-180. His answer was just what you could expect from PROFESSIONAL who cares about your feelings and your safety, but not financial benefit, he told me you better keep loosing weight for couple more months and when you reach your desired weight,and feel ready we can schedule a surgery, so it would be easier and less harmful for your body just to remove excess skin after weight loss. .then I explained him that i'm tight in time and have it to be done ASAP. As I had seen another surgeon before meeting him that told me he will perdorm lower body lift and only upper back liposuction (and asked me to pay 21,972 $USD in 2 days and only after that they will try to arrange a time for my surgery, ) i asked Dr.Darrow if he will do lower body lift , he told me he wouldn't do that because i have lost weight but my skin is not loose nor sagging on my lower back and buttocks and it will be pretty heavy to lift , "YOUR SAFETY IS THE MOST IMPORTANT TO ME, if you have lower body lift post surgery period would be a nightmare, you won't be able to sit or lay down because of severe pain " (now i understand how TRUE it is ). He told me that he will perform extended abdominoplasty ( tummy tuck with extended incision) and aggressive liposuction on my upper and lower back and just above my buttocks, also i decided to have a breast lift w/reduction.When i asked about inner thigh lift he told me it is too risky to have all of those surgeries done at the same time because incision of inner thigh will be just about few mm under Tummy tuck incision and could cause serious problems to me after surgery .So we postponed it to 6 months later I had ten thousand questions and concerns but after first appointment i knew exactly THIS IS MY SURGEON!!!! the most important reason i choose Dr.Darrow is that he cares for my safety first but not the financial benefits,REAL DOCTOR!!! He told me not to worry about the proportions after surgery done, because he will do a body contouring . . I was so excited couldn't wait those 5 days to pass after first visit.Whenever i called his clinic having any questions his assistant , awesome lady Helen always was very kind and helpful. unlike many other doctors in US Dr.Darrow calls you back for post surgery follow up , and even having questions before surgery he was answering my questions himself, what made me even more confident about surgery, in case if i have a trouble or emergency call i would be able to reach him! and... The day of surgery... Surgery was successful !!! I spent 2 nights in recovery room . On the day after surgery they told me to stand up and walk a bit otherwise i could have problems with veins on my legs. it was terrible as i had been "re-created" from back of my neck to my buttocks :))) but it worth it!!! ABSOLUTELY WORTH IT!!! healing process was fast and great results made me happier from day to day. On my second post surgery visit to Dr.Darrow's clinic i told him and his awesome assistant Helen about my new problem "Before surgery i was so nervous and aggressive at myself when i went for a shopping because nothing fitted and looked good on me, but now my new problem is i can't decide which one to buy because they all look so great on me!!! my husband already started to complaint about how much money i spend on shopping :))))) That was so great to hear they laughs while i was heading to the exit door :))))well even it worth it, it is my favorite problem and would love it to last foreverrrr!!! So happy of my choice!!! Thanks a lot Dr. Darrow.!!!! I expected good results but i i could never imagine about THIS NEW ME I am happy with !!!!! I'll load pictures later on , because i don't have any BEFORE pictures scanned , have to ask Dr.Darrow to send them to me so it could be easier to compare. Think 1000000 times choosing your surgeon, it's better to pay additional 200-300 $ to meet few more surgeons than ending up with bad results which not worth your money risk and disappointment. I would highly recommend Dr.Darrow.

I had a tummy tuck after many years of hating my sagging belly due to having three children. Finally at the age of 43 I was able to get the surgery I so desperately wanted, When I met with Dr. Darrow I thought I had died and went to heaven, he took one look at me and mapped out exactly what I needed. He is truly gifted in his skill. I am so happy with my results, I couldn't of asked for more.

I had a breast augmentation with Dr. Darrow. From the moment I met him, I knew he was who I would choose to perform the procedure, after seeing another surgeon and lots of research. He was wonderful. Very smart, very connected to you during times of consult, totally focused. Answered all questions thoroughly. Wait time was minimal. Fantastic secretary. The procedure went off without a hitch, and I got excellent results that I am so happy with. My breasts are as close to perfect as possible, and he sized them dead on. They match my size and frame perfectly. Definitely consider this man if you are looking for a top notch plastic surgeon.

Doctor instills confidence from the moment you meet him. Very down to earth consultation, friendly staff and competent care from beginning to end. I've had several other doctors examine my breasts since the operation and got stellar reviews on the work.

Dr.Darrow is kind,caring and professional. He answers any and all questions you may ask him and never makes you feel like you are keeping him from anything or anyone else. After my surgery I called his office for some questions I had regarding my medication and never expected to speak to him directly, but he got on the phone and answered my questions again.

Dr.Darrow and his secretary Helen are both SO kind and helpful during my recovery of my BA I got almost a month ago. I did extensive research before I chose my plastic surgeon for this procedure and my 1st and only consultation with Dr.Darrow made it perfectly clear that he was the one. I couldn't be happier with my results so far. I explained/showed exactly what I was looking for and so far I can see that Dr.Darrow's specialties have helped me achieved my goal. Not to mention, I traveled almost 2hrs away for my consultation, procedure, and follow ups after my BA and him and Helen have been so accommodating to my work schedule and travel time. I continuously recommend Dr.Darrow and actually have a friend looking into him for Tummy Tuck. The real reason I chose Dr.Darrow is because he is one of the top-rated plastic surgeons in Boston, every review on the NUMEROUS sites I visited was 4-5 stars (out of 5), and his kind/caring vibe along with his helpful/knowledgeable discussions made me feel comfortable and assured that this was the PS for me. Awesome!

Dr. Darrow is extremely polite and made me feel completely comfortable, explained in detail what to expect in regards to what I should expect to feel after the surgery. He spent as much time as I needed to answer all of my questions and make sure that all my needs were met before proceeding with the procedure. I was able to get an appointment with in a few weeks and his secretary helen also kept in touch with me. I have never met a more personable person. She not only books the appointments but also takes the time to know you personally which made my experience that much better. After the surgery Dr. Darrow himself called me several times to see how I was recooperating and my pain management level. My experience was amazing and I would absolutely recommed it to anyone.

I had my tummy tuck done by Dr. Darrow several months ago and I could not be happier. I had seen his work on many other people and his attention to detail was my reason for choosing him. Dr. Darrow has a friendly, relasec manner and immediately made me feel at ease. He discussed what the surgery would entail clearly and concisely from A to Z. I was given an honest opinion of what I could expect. He listened to all my questions and concerns and addressed each one. My surgery was at his private surgical facility where I received exceptional care. Dr. Darrow personally called me the next day after the surgery to be sure I was fine and to answer any questions I had. I thought this was a nice touch. I am exceptionally pleased that I chose Dr. Darrow as my experience has been superior in every aspect. I would highly recommend him to others.

Dr Darrow is very skilled surgeon (which is important) but, just as important.... he's compassionate, honest, down to earth and takes the time to answer all your questions. I never felt "rushed" or "pressured" with Dr Darrow or his staff.

From the moment I stepped into Dr. Darrow’s office for my breast augmentation surgery consultation, I immediately felt at ease. During this first meeting, he explained what every single step of the procedure would entail and listened to and addressed all of my questions and concerns, providing thorough and honest advice during the entire consultation. As I had undergone a previous breast reduction procedure, I was concerned that this would be a complicated surgery, but Dr. Darrow was honest, and assured me that he had done hundreds of similar procedures and promised I would be happy with the results. Dr. Darrow was right about that – the result of this procedure was even better than I hoped for.
