I had my breast augmentation done by Dr Minniti and i am so happy. Dr Minniti is kind and caring and i'm so glad he's my doctor. He placed silicone gel implants through an incision in my armpit which was amazing, because i can not see the scars. i had almost no pain after the sugery and went to work in 3 days.

Dr Minniti is everything I hoped for and more in a surgeon. I was referred to him by a friend and as soon as my fiance and i met with him we knew we woukd make my dream come true. What makes Dr Minniti special is that he is an amazing human being. As a surgeon, he has all the credentials (degrees and training from top medical schools and programs in the country), but what makes him so special...

Dr. Minniti did a fantastic job with correcting both my neck and eye issues. I am thrilled when I see profile pictures, no more "turkey neck" and to actually see my eyes and not the bags under them is terrific. I shave my head and the scars are very minimal. Dr. Minniti truly cares about you as a patient. Both my wife and I have had procedures done with him and each experience has been...
5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty
Finding the right plastic surgeon can be a difficult task in a city filled with surgeons on every corner. I was referred to Dr. Minniti by a medical practitioner and am very happy with my results. He was very welcoming to questions from our first encounter to my one year follow up appointment. I had met with two other surgeons prior and I knew he was my surgeon due to him treating me with compassion and not another appointment of the day as I had felt at other Beverly Hills consultations. Jodi is awesome and Gail is very honest in providing details about what to expect from days leading up to the surgery to day of. Please know that I had every anxiety possible prior to moving forward with this procedure; I waited 31 years to finally go through with it but I am happy I landed here as my final stop.

Dr. Minniti has been not only an incredible surgeon but also an amazing support for me through this process. The moment you walk in the waiting room, you can get a sense of professionalism, but also deep care and concern for each patient's needs. His entire staff is fantastic. I must admit, I had my reservations and preconceived ideas about a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon's office, but I have nothing but wonderful things to say. Jodi at the front desk is warm and welcoming, Gale, the patient coordinator is loving and understanding. I was concerned that Dr. Minniti was going to turn me away for surgery because of my weight, which I brought up to him in our consultation. He was gentle about this sensitive subject and told me a story to ease my anxiety. I greatly appreciate Dr. Minniti and everything that he and his staff have done for me!

19 Year Old Saline over Implants with Capsular Contracture Replaced and Lifted with smaller Silicone Unders - Beverly Hills, CA
I am so glad I did my research and chose Dr. Minniti. He and his staff have been wonderful through this whole process, from the original request for a consultation, to giving me exactly what we discussed, to the follow-up care and being incredibly responsive and patient with all of my questions and concerns. My case was certainly not the easiest due to the scar tissue on one side, but he did an excellent job and I can't wait to see how they look in a few months!

64 Year Old Executive Showing Signs of Wear Beyond His Chronological Age, Needed Some Assistance - Beverly Hills, CA
Dr. Minniti, Gail, and Jodi were remarkable. They were very professional, accessible, and responsive to questions and requests. As a team they made the process smooth and uneventful. They genuinely care about their patients. Post procedure, Serenity Aftercare was the only way to go the first night following surgery. They provided excellent care and monitoring until I was able to be discharged. A couple of days following surgery I had an issue that needed attention. Within an hour of contacting Dr. Minniti's Office my prescription to remedy the situation was ready for pick up. You couldn't ask for a better Doctor's Office, Surgery Center, Anesthesiologist, and Recovery Center.

My experience with Dr. Minnniti was beyond my expectations in every way. I felt cared for, and the personal attention I got was unbelievable. The most amazing part is how EASY everything was! NO PAIN!! I can still say to this day, it was one of the best things I ever did for myself, because of WHO the surgeon was. Dr. Minniti made all the difference. The aftercare, instructions, and healing could not have been easier! Dr. Minniti is an expert in looking at a face (or body) and knowing EXACTLY what needs to be done, without doing too much. Dr. Minniti met all of my expectations, and even went beyond. I never thought I'd have the face and body I wanted... and it was so easy and comfortable! I can honestly say having plastic surgery done by Dr. Minniti was one of the best things I ever did for myself in my life. I still see Dr. Minniti for botox and injections. I can honestly say that it takes a GENIUS plastic surgeon to make you look NATURAL. I'll never forget when I went to see my parents after my rhinoplasty, and they didn't notice that anything happened! Everyone (including friends) kept saying how amazing I looked, that I was "younger" and I looked rested, etc..., but nobody could figure it out! He's the absolute best, and I am SO happy with my results.
