After nursing three children and changes in body weight, I was left with very small, saggy breasts. I felt now was the time to enhance my breasts (which I have wanted to do for 22 years as I have always been on the small side). The question was which surgeon. After several consultations with different surgeons, I felt Dr. DeLuca was the best surgeon for me. Not only did he take the time to explain everything, but I never felt rushed. Once I had decided this was the right decision for me he was able to schedule my procedure quickly. His staff is remarkable. Very kind, nonjudgemental, and effecient. After the surgery (which had a surprisingly quick and easy healing time)Dr. DeLuca was always available for any questions/concerns. I actually came in before my next scheduled appointment because of a concern. Not only did he address my concern, but he didn't make me feel silly for my questions. I now fill out my bathing suits and other clothes nicely. I would highly recommend Dr. DeLuca and his staff. In fact, I travelled 60 miles each way to take advantage of his great skill and service.

For years I have joked about having a "mommy makeover" and then one day decided to bite the bullet and make a consultation appointment. I looked online at all of the before and after pictures posted by area surgeons. In my opinion, Dr.DeLuca's photos were the best by far. Next, I searched to find as much information as possible about Dr.DeLuca. My husband went with me to the consultation and we both felt very comfortable after meeting him. We asked many questions and even emailed more after our meeting. All were answered well and promptly. I've found the staff to be every bit as professional and helpful as Dr.DeLuca. I am very happy with my decision to have a mommy makeover and the decision I made to use DeLuca Plastic Surgery!

They deserve FIVE Stars . This is an outstanding office with an outstanding doctor. I heard of Dr. DeLuca through reference. I started the consultation process with many different doctors from Long Island to Albany, NY. The moment I met Dr. DeLuca, and staff, I knew they were the ones who I wanted to do my procedures. Dr. DeLuca was the only doctor who made me feel completely comfortable and confident with my recent decisions. During the process I did not encounter one con, only pros. I have never been more satisfied with my mind, body, and soul.

I came across a very confident looking physician on this site and said "he is the one" (silly right to go based upon a photo). But, I have to say my gut instincts were right though, as soon as you walk into his office his staff treat you with respect and make you feel comfortable. And when you meet him its even more evident that he is a man who knows what he is doing and will do it right, he'll be honest with you and the results you'll achieve and he takes pride in his work. During my consultations all my questions and concerns were answered honestly and knowledgeable. In my opinion this man has magical hands and does a wonderful service to all his patients and I will refer anyone to him for any procedure. During the recovery process he and his staff are always there to answer any questions or concerns for you. Had I known the procedure was not going to be as bad as I had always worried about I would have done this way sooner. AWESOME JOB DR. D!

After considering breast augmentation pretty much my whole life, I finally decided to make an appointment for a consultation. I did a Google search and found several local surgeons. I looked at what seemed like a million before and after photos, and noticed a huge difference in Dr. DeLuca's breast augmentation photos compared to the others and knew I had to make an appointment with him. From the first phone call, I knew I was making the right choice. Dr. DeLuca and his staff are extremely professional and make you feel very comfortable. I was nervous about my implants being too big, as I have a small frame and really just wanted a natural look- and Dr. DeLuca assured me they would fit my body type just fine. The whole process from consultation to surgery and recovery went by so quick and very smoothly. I am ecstatic with how my implants look, I could not have asked for a better size, shape, and overall look. I have never felt so confident and I would do it again in a heartbeat, thanks to Dr. DeLuca!

I found Dr. DeLuca and his staff to be very professional and friendly. I am very happy with the results of my surgery as well as the responsiveness of Dr. DeLuca and his staff to all my questions and concerns both pre and post operatively. I am one to ask a lot of questions. Most doctor offices would not have the time to address every question, but this was not the case with Dr. DeLuca or his staff. If I called to speak to his nurse I would either get her instantly or she'd call me right back. It was the same with emails; often times as soon as I sent the email I would get an immediate response. I always felt like his staff was there for me and I never felt like I was being annoying with all my questions and certainly did not feel like another patient who was forgotten about. Also, If I had an appointment I was taken in almost instantly and never had to wait long to be seen. I did a lot of research on my particular procedure, so when I was in the process of chosing a plastic surgeon I was prepared with questions and also knew generally what was necessary to accomoplish the results I wanted. After meeting with Dr. DeLuca I knew he was the right person for the job. He did not try to talk me into having additional or unecessary procedures. He is up on the current methods of performing plastic surgery to get long lasting results (and in my case avoid unecessary incisions). If considering a plastic surgeon I definitely suggest meeting with Dr. DeLuca first. You won't be disappointed.

Dr. DeLuca is fantastic! I had a rhinoplasty about 5 months ago. I love my new nose. It does not look like I had a nose job, it's MINE but more feminine! He removed the bump on the bridge. It now points slightly upward for that feminine touch. He is very concerned with all questions and does not rush you with anything. Little does he know I plan on coming back for a breast augmentation!

I met with several other plastic surgeons prior to meeting Dr. Deluca. Once I met him and he explained everything, I knew that I found the right doctor for my procedure.

Dr. Deluca is extremely confident and easy to work with. His office staff are amazing. In addition, the staff at the surgery center are wonderful as well. They all really help to make you feel as comfortable as possible throughout the entire experience.

I was absolutely positive in my decision to have breast augmentation surgery but thought choosing a doctor would be the difficult part. I needed someone highly experienced with a track record of great successes to put any worries I had to rest. Dr. DeLuca was strongly recommended stating he did truly beautiful work. Exactly what I was looking for! I can now attest not only to his beautiful work (I am so very happy with the results), but also to Dr. DeLuca's professional conduct, non-judgemental demeanor, as well as his dedication to his client's satisfaction. His pride was best demonstrated in his reaction to his work at my post-surgical appointment. I made two excellent decisions this year: to have the surgery, and selecting the best doctor to perform it. I would proudly recommend Dr. DeLuca to family and friends.

Dr. Deluca is an amazing sergeon i got a breast inhancement and you can not even tell i had them done. The scar is nearly invisible after one month! I am so impressed with the outcome of my surgery and would do it all over again. The recovery only took me three days and i was back to my self in no time. I am 100% ecstatic with my new body and can not thank Dr. Deluca enough!! I would recommend him to anyone. He is an amazing sergeon and I can not say enough good things about him!

I never really thought I would get plastic surgery but after having my two kids it was something I was secretly wishing for. I was nervous and anxious about the whole process that I wasn't sure I would really go through with it.Once I met with Dr DeLuca all my questions were answered and I felt confident to go through with breast augmentation. He is very professional, confident and very easy to talk to about any concerns. He knew what would work best for my body and I was able to fully trust his decisions and I am so glad I did! His office staff are wonderful and the staff that work with him for surgery are so kind and reassuring! I couldn't have asked for a better experience and would recommend him to anyone!! And my results?? BEAUTIFUL!! Thanks Dr. DeLuca!!

Dr. Deluca is an amazing doctor. I could not be happier with the surgery I had. I was recommended by a friend who also had a similar surgery and she was right! Great doctor, very little pain and the results are amazing!

Dr. Deluca is so nice. His office personna is very personable, at ease and non-judgemental. You can really talk to him and he listens. He has a great sense of what your result should be. The change in demeanor on surgery day is reasuring as his focus is all there and he's on - all serious business giving you the sense that you're in completely compitent hands. Geez, I guess I'm saying YOU SHOULD DEFNITELY USE THIS DOCTOR ! Just don't keep him so busy that I have to stand in line - lol !

My sister and I both had breast lifts and implants done by Dr. DeLuca and are extremely satisfied with our results. The Dr. was very informative before and after the procedure, answered any questions or concerns we had in great detail, and the end result was amazing. We are so glad we chose him. He was easy to talk to, made us feel very comfortable and confident being under his care. Anyone contemplating using another plastic surgeon should look no further. Trust us, you will be happy with your results as we are!

All I can say is thank you, Dr. DeLuca for making my dreams come true!

My experience was amazing from the start. I requested info over the internet and the receptionist called me literally 15 min after I sent the request. She answered all the questions I had and got me right in for an appointment to see Dr. Deluca. Meeting with him we were on the same page about everything I knew what I wanted but I wanted to hear it coming from him. I asked Dr. Deluca his opinion and he was dead on what I wanted. Dr. Deluca made me feel comfortable and he answered any of my questions. I most definitely recommend Dr. Deluca to anyone.

From my initial consultation to my post-op appointments, I have only had positive experiences with Dr. Deluca and his staff. Wait times were never more than a few minutes. Everyone made me feel comforable and were patient in answering all my questions- I never felt rushed. My tummy tuck and liposuction went better than I ever expected. I was surprised to see I had no bruising at all! Swelling and pain were minimal and I am healing quickly. I am so happy with my results and so thankful that I chose Dr. Deluca!

Dr. DeLuca was wonderful. I could not have asked for a better surgical team. I was in and out of the surgery center in four hours and had a wonderful recovery and overall experience. His followup care and ability to answer my questions and hear my concerns made him the perfect choice for me.

I had a co-worker who had a procedure done, and she highly recommended him. I've had two surgeries to date! I highly recommend him!! This is my second procedure with Dr.Deluca, and I couldn't be more satisfied. It couldnt have come at a better time in my life.... My spirits are higher and my self confidence has soared. Dr.Deluca was wonderful, he was patient with all my questions, and the procedure was flawless. I can't thank him enough, writing this actually brings me to tears thinking about how positive this entire experience has been.

Everything was more than what I expected. Amazing job I made an appt. with Dr. Deluca because he came highly recommended from other women I spoke to that had the surgery. I told him I wanted a "natural look", he made me feel completely comfortable. His office is great, they answered any questions i had. They also called in to check on me. Two months later and i look/feel amazing. I'm extremely happy that i went through with the surgery and had Dr. Deluca as a doctor. I had a wonderful experience, I recommend everyone to go to Dr.Deluca.

I interviewed 4 plastic surgeons prior to choosing Dr. Deluca for my breast augmentation. He is the ONLY surgeon who made me feel comfortable about the procedure I was choosing to get done. He was extremely professional but personable during the entire process. He walked me through the entire process and made sure I was fully educated before scheduling my surgery. As someone who has had multiple consultations, both in the Albany, NY area and outside, I would 100% recommend Dr. Deluca. My breasts look completely natural and the outcome of the surgery was better than I could have ever expected.

Deluca was very professional, he cares about what your issues are! I loved going to his office cause they never make you wait long like some places. They get you in and out! Everyone in the office is very nice and respectful as well!

Really great surgeon. Very patient, and very clear with me. Never felt pressured to do anything I didn't want to do. Highly recommend.

I exhaustively researched plastic surgeons online and was willing to travel to NYC and Boston to get the best possible care. I assumed that I would find the most high-quality plastic surgeon in a major metropolitan area. After doing a lot of research online, I was surprised to find that the surgeon who appeared to be the very best, was right here in the capital region of upstate NY. Dr DeLuca is a true artist. When I look at his before and after photos, as compared to other surgeons, he doesn't just perform the surgery and put things where they should go. He really pays attention to detail and the best possible final result for his patients. He is incredibly professional and I think truly takes pride in his work and doing the very best for each of us. I am not surprised that people travel from far away to see him - if I ever needed or wanted anything done in the future I would not want to see anyone else. Dr DeLuca and his team have been very responsive every step of the way, the surgical secretary and the nurse were always available to answer all of my questions and help me to feel comfortable. The nurse, Brianne (I hope I am spelling that right) is especially awesome.

Dr. DeLuca and staff were wonderful. The surgery and recovery were exactly as described (more uncomfortable than pain). Dr. DeLuca knew exactly what I wanted and what would look best for me and delivered on both.

Dr. DeLuca was very highly recommended to me by friends who had surgery performed by him, or knew someone who had a great result from surgery Dr DeLuca performed. Kudos Dr., you made me a very happy woman.
