"VERY little pain." "Dr. Paletta communicated with my ortho surgeon about this case and called him twice after (per the ortho surgeons office) to be sure the case was moved to an appropriate time and would be done...." "The man is truly an artist – I am beyond happy with my results."

54 Year Old Mother of Six. My 55th Birthday Treat to Myself.

Dr. Paletta is a very good doctor he spends time listening to what you want then he explains to you what he can do in how he can do it. He also makes you feel very comfortable. He doesn't make you feel rushed.

A New Me

My experience with Dr. Paletta was awesome. He has a wonderful bedside manner, and was very responsive to my questions and concerns. He and his entire staff are very professional. I wanted to improve my appearance. Thirty-six years ago I had a cesarean section that left a horrible, ugly scar. As I aged and gained weight, my belly just got larger and larger. No amount of dieting or...

5'2" 140 lbs 450cc Breastfed 4 children

For what seems like my whole life, I've been self conscious about my chest size. I've worn every padded bra out there. I always feel. As for my husband that he doesn't have more to "work" with. I had 4 kids and nursed all of them.... poor little boobies. We're now in a financial position that I can do this. My family is very conservative and I'm most nervous about their reactions... even...

41 Years Old, No Kids and Ready to Do This! - Savannah, GA

Hi everyone! I can relate to a lot of the stories here and have been following (stalking if you will lol) for a few months. I have been large chested forever. I went from nothing to a B/C cup the summer between 2nd/3rd grade. Yep, that's around 8 years old. By the time I was in 7th grade, I was already a DD. I wasn't overweight at all as a child, so it was all boobs. Nothing like having grown...

34 Yr Old. Breast Reduction, Lift & Tummy Tuck - Savannah, GA

I was so nervous. Its almost been a month but I couldn't be happier with how it's turning out. I made a great choice by going with Dr. Paletta. I had horrible stretch marks, sagging huge breasts & fat rolls in my back. After 4 pregnancies, it was impossible for me to feel good about myself. Going to the gym depressed me because all I saw was more sagging skin.

The first few days were not fun I mostly slept but now I'm feeling a lot better! I'm still cautious about lifting my arms and what not . They are dropping a little I can't wait till I can go bra shopping. I love my new girls so much. I think I got the perfect size for my body type. I am able to shower on my own and do small things

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

35 Years Old, Circumferencial Tummy Tuck. Savannah, GA

The skin and fat that I carried around my waist was something I have been self-conscious about for a long time, but Dr Paletta has a way about him that made me very comfortable. After talking to him, I was confident he could give me the results that I wanted. But surprisingly, he not only met my expectations but he exceeded them! The man is truly an artist – I am beyond happy with my results.
