Fresh and Perky - Tampa, FL

Dr. Castellano was great. It was kinda hard because he is so handsome you feel a little more nervous lol. Never the less he assured me there was no need to be nervous. He answered all my questions with great care. Every follow up was easy and comfortable. The fact that his nurse is so versed on the whole process makes it so comforting. It is almost as if you have two doctors present to answer your questions and concerns.

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

41 Year Old Male Finally Does Liposuction - Tampa, FL

I ask a lot of questions because I live on the internet. Dr. Castellano is always gracious to answer all of my questions even though you find errant information on the internet a lot. He is very well rounded and has a great bedside manner. I always feel at ease with him when he is doing a procedure on me. I sent him several questions via his FaceBook page on the same day I had the procedure; and he quickly answered them.

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Best Botox by Far - Tampa, FL

I have been getting botox for years. I have had it done by ENTs, plastic surgeons, dermatologist, and PA's. Dr. Castellano did such a great job on my botox. The results were flawless, yet I didn't look silly or frozen like I have in the past by other MD's. His placement was right on and he even gave me a slight brow lift where he placed the botox. My botox also lasted about 4-5 months which usually it never last that long. He doesn't over dilute his product like other offices. I would recommend Dr. Castellano to any of my friends and plan to see him in the future. Highly recommended!

As a medical professional myself, I understand the importance of selecting a physician who truly 'fits' with you and your individualized expectations.

Hello! I am so glad I found this sight and wish I would have found it earlier. I went to my PS about 2 1/2 weeks ago for a consult for breast revision and lift.

Can Cosmetic Surgery Give You a More “Natural” Look?

In the past, cosmetic surgery was associated with an obviously artificial appearance that hardly applies to the techniques of today. Breast implants once looked fake, high, and round, facelifts resulted in the infamous “wind tunnel” look, and nonsurgical procedures like BOTOX® lent their recipients a permanently surprised expression. Today, however, surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic advancements mean that some procedures may actually help patients look even more natural than they...
