5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover
Dr. Campanile was my absolute favorite out of all of my consultations because of the time he spent with me explaining the entire procedure and results I could expect. He has a real love for tummy tucks and has his own technique called the C.L.A.S.S. tummy tuck which is drainless and incorporates liposuction in conjunction with the tuck. I am now 5 weeks post op and I am so happy I choose Dr. Campanile to do my mommy makeover. He is a wonderful surgeon and his entire staff has been great! I highly recommend Dr. C for any body procedures, you won't be disappointed!

Dr. Campanile has a TT technique that is drainless and includes liposuction to upper abdominal areas. He has a way of tacking down the BB that leaves it without stitch scars. My BB is absolutely natural looking. I read his surgical notes on my case and I am awed at what a great and caring surgeon he is. He really cares about individual results. He provides an honest pre-op consult regarding what is possible, but doesn't go into the sales routine (which I hate). He has a sense of humor, is caring, and shows real concern. I recommend him highly to anyone considering a TT - whether you are in the Denver area or not. His nurse who helped in the office and surgery suite, Carla, is a caring, professional, knowledgeable and kind. The office staff Annetta, Cheryl, and Erin were all great in communicating to me from long distance, arranging surgery times, helping with FMLA paperwork, and obtaining copies of medical records. They are all friendly and concerned about my well being when I come into the office. Hands down, great experience.

I'm going to make this short because Dr. Campanile and his staff are A1 AMAZING! And yes, I'm verrrrry picky when it comes to service and results. Neve once had ANY problem from the time I requested an appt on their website. I'm 25, 5'7", and my upper body is a little "off" (asymmetrical) due to a gymnastics injury when I was younger. So my boobs weren't proportionate or perfect to start with...

I have to say Dr. Frank Campanile and his staff Alicia and Dawn were absolutely amazing. It was by far the best experience of my entire life. I cannot even begin to tell you how much they changed my life. I absolutely hated everything about myself before going to see Dr. Campanile. I slept all day, didn't want to face the world. I wore the baggiest clothes I could find and was not happy in life. I was getting severely depressed. Dr. Campanile changed my life in every way in some ways I feel that he saved my life by changing the way I felt about myself. I absolutely love him and his staff for all that they did for me and continually do for me. I cannot even put into words how grateful I am to have found such amazing Doctor's office. Every time I think about how I felt before and how I feel to this very day it brings tears of joy and thankfulness to my eyes for how much they changed my life for the better. I strongly recommend Dr. Campanile and his staff to anyone and everyone.

Dr. Campanile and his team were AMAZING! From the moment I met them, I knew I was in great hands. A caring team that were very patient with my 1000 questions and nerves. It was clear to me that Dr. C. enjoys what he does and cares deeply in giving the best expert results! His C.L.A.S.S. Tummy Tuck was the right choice for me. When I was researching the surgery, I was freaking about having those nasty drains to take care of (or having my mom take care of them). His method meant no drains and I couldn't imagine doing it any other way. Another thing I felt good about is that he said very clearly that the point of the surgery and lipo was not to make me skinny, but to contour my body so it looks better overall. That is what he did. He was very careful with the inner thigh lipo so it doesn't look weird as I gain and lose weight from regular activity or menstrual bloating. I highly recommend Dr. C. and his office of caring, friendly, professional assistants.

Dr. Frank Campanile is a one of the most skilled surgeons I have known. His consult appointment was very informative and helpful to understand the entire procedure. He was non-judgmental and professional. His surgical techniques are the best and created the most wonderful results for me. His staff is kind, helpful and very knowledgeable. Dr. Campanile called me back on a weekend to answer...
Dr. Campanile and his office have been great! Very professional. Surgery is Aug 19. Will post full review after.
5 out of 5 stars Drainless Tummy Tuck
His staff, Erin and Alisha (there is a new girl but I can't remember her name) were always beyond professional and courteous. Each time I went to the office I felt like I was their only client. I hardly waited at all between seeing his staff and waiting for Dr. C. He is very laid back, relaxed professional and calm. The morning of my surgery he came into see me privately to make his markings on me just one on one--which I really appreciated. Once he lifted my apron, he remarked that he was also going to go ahead and lipo my mons for me which filled me with relief. I really could not have gotten a better experience than the one that I got with Dr. Campanile and his staff. His C.L.A.S.S. tummy tuck technique he developed is far superior to a standard one, and his perfectionism and thoroughness and comforting at every turn. Even in my post op exam I just never felt rushed even for a moment. He answered all of my questions, reassured me left and right and gave me realistic results and expectations. I would recommend him for a tummy tuck to anyone. He is a wonderful person and surgeon.

So far so good :) Can't wait to have my Tummy Tuck at the end of the month. Nervous, but sure that I picked the right Doctor for me. The staff was so knowledgable and I have never felt rushed. I even had a "freak out" a few days ago, and when I called the office, the girls talked to me and let me "get it all out" I am so excited, very very nervous, and wishing my surgery day would just get here.

My doctor is an amazing PS. He is so confident with his tummy tucks and breast implant surgeries. He really explains the procedures and he made me and my husband really feel like we were in good hands. We loved how much time and attention to specifics he took into account about me and what I wanted. I had his class tummy tuck, which is DRAIN-LESS!!!! it includes lipo and takes about 2 hours more than most doctors, but that is because of what he does to pull the muscles together and the liposuction and some great belly button concaving. My belly button was stretched out and gross, but he made it cute again. He helped me pick the perfect breast implants. I got high profile 400 cc Gel filled implants that help bring the perky back to the girls :) I love my new body. My husband loves my new body. I don't feel guilty anymore, just looking forward to wearing a bikini this summer (I have not done that in 7 years!). If you want body procedures and you live in Colorado go to Dr. Campanile in Cherry Creek, you won't regret it.

Many women contemplate getting breast implants long before they commit to the procedure. Part of the fun of planning for breast augmentation is imagining the final results, but the decision to pursue breast enhancement involves more than just saying yes to new breasts. Before embarking on breast enlargement, there are several important factors to consider that together will ensure that your procedure is custom-tailored to meet your specific goals, and deliver long-lasting,...
With festivities for every occasion often involving boundless feasts, the holiday season has become nearly synonymous with weight gain. While gaining a few temporary pounds is most likely harmless, recovering your pre-weight gain figure may be more challenging to achieve than just by cutting back on Christmas cookies alone. If you’re struggling with a few isolated problem areas that don’t respond to hitting the gym or skipping the extra eggnog, body contouring procedures such as...
A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, creates a flatter, firmer, more toned look to the abdominal profile by removing excess fat and skin and tightening the abdominal muscles beneath. Although especially useful for correcting stretched abdominal areas in women who have been pregnant and given birth, tummy tucks are not just for moms. There are some misconceptions and even a few surprises about this body contouring procedure, so here are five lesser-known facts about the tummy tuck. 1....

If you're considering liposuction, you may feel overwhelmed by all the different methods and techniques that seem to be available, one of which is LipoSelection.
