5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

40 Y.o. Mom of 1- Tummy Tuck and Medial Thigh Lift. Orange, CT

I have to say I am quite impressed by Dr. Restifo and his entire staff. Going through surgery of any kind is difficult enough, but when you have a surgeon that cares so much about not only aesthetics but also post op care, I find that amazing. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone considering this type of surgery. The level of care that he has shown for my well being is above and beyond my expectations. I had chosen him based on his experience and his excellent reviews which are very important. And just a side note, if you are seriously considering plastic surgery, do your research! It's so important, and when you go for a consult, ask questions! Dr. Restifo answered any and every question I had for him, and I had a whole list (not kidding!) not only when I went for my consult, but my pre op, post op, etc. He is also a very kind and soft spoken doc, but also very honest. You will find doctors that are only in the business for their own pocket so to speak, but he isn't one of those. I highly recommend him!

Completely Satisfield - New Haven, CT

My experience was completely positive. I choose Dr. Restifo because of all the referrals I had gotten from people. His reputation speaks for itself. Dr. Restifo came highly recommended by a number of people. I am so happy with my results. I had been diagnosed with Breast Cancer and I decided on a bi-lateral mastectomy. Dr. Restifo did my breast reconstruction. He is such an accomplished plastic surgeon that I placed all my trust in him. He and his staff are very friendly and very compationate. They made me feel very comfortable. I am so happy with my results.

Seamless Surgical Experience - New Haven, CT

As a result, I consulted with a small number of well-regarded surgeons specializing in aesthetic breast surgery. One of these surgeons was Dr. Richard Restifo, a plastic surgeon based in New Haven and Wilton, CT. During my consultation, he was knowledgeable, considerate, and patient. He spent ample time a taking my medical history, conducting a physical examination, and answering my questions about breast augmentation. Since I had some negative surgical experiences in the past, I had, perhaps, more questions and concerns about the surgery than other prospective patients. Dr. Restifo answered my questions calmly, kindly, and clearly. After additional deliberation, I decided to have Dr. Restifo perform breast augmentation surgery on me. My surgery, performed at Temple Medical Center, in New Haven, CT, was successful. Dr. Restifo and Gabrielle Troisi, PA., ensured that my recovery was as painless as possible. Dr. Restifo is an excellent surgeon whom I would recommend to anyone needing and/or wanting breast surgery.

26, No Kids, AA to ?, 435 Cc Mod Prof Under Muscle. New Haven, CT

Dr. Restifo kept my desires in mind while making his professional recommendations. His staff is knowledgable and courteous and I felt completely safe in his hands. It wasn't until I was in recovery that I found out which implant he ended up using; I put all my faith and confidence in his professionalism and experience & couldn't be happier! I would highly recommend him to anyone in the area considering BA. I'd trust that the other aspects of his work are just as impressive.

Life Changing - New Haven, CT

After researching many doctors...Dr. Restifo was the most educated, and highly revered surgeon in his field. After waiting for close to 10 years the decision to get my life and body back was an excellent choice. What Dr. Restifo did for me after 3 C-Sections was in part simply life altering and my results are miraculous to say the least. His talents are far superior than anyone I have seen. Dr. Restifo is very professional and caring to his patients individual needs as well his staff is always very warming. I could not be more pleased with my experience!!

Dr. Restifo and Amanda (his PA), were very thorough and asked a lot of questions. They explained everything and made sure they both knew what my concerns were. They are both superior to any other plastic surgeons around.
