5 out of 5 stars Botox

Amazing Surgeon!

Dr. Fontana is an amazing surgeon and person. He is so talented and caring. I will always go to him and have the utmost confidence in him and his staff. They are just as wonderful and professional, all at the same time. :-)

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

I had a fantastic experience

This doctor was fantastic. He answered all of my questions before Ahs after surgery. He called to check on me the day after surgery. He had a wonderful bedside manner. I will go to him if I need any other surgery. I definitely recommend him for anyone interested in plastic surgery.My ob/gyn told me my breast look very natural. I recommended Dr Fontana to her.

Dr. Fontana and his staff are Exceptional

Excellent! Dr. Fontana was very up front and told you the truth not what he thought you wanted to hear. He explains everything so that you know and understand what is going to happen. His finished product is also excellent. Would recommend him to everyone.

Superior Doctor

Dr. Fontana has preformed various procedures on me throughout the years and I have had a fantastic result each and every time. His superior skills as a surgeon and excellent bedside manner is like no other you will find. He truly always puts his patients first! If anyone is looking for the best plastic surgeon Dr. Fontana is "The BEST"!

5 out of 5 stars Liposuction

Simply Amazing!!

I am just about 3 months post-op from liposuction with Dr. Fontana, and suffice to say, it has changed my life. Dr. Fontana targeted an area that I have struggled with since my early twenties (saddlebags) and as a result, not only do clothes now fit me properly, but I am able to wear styles that I never could have even considered before. Aside from the physical benefits, my self-confidence has...

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Very Professional.

I had a lower Blepharoplasty and the results of this surgery were excellent. During my first consultation/examination, Dr. Fontana clearly explained the procedure, the fees and the follow up visits. His staff was courteous and very helpful in preparing me for post surgery recovery. I recommend him highly.

Perfect Time - Waldorf, MD

I appreciate how Dr. Fontana was very direct about every little detail that he would perform and my mind was immediately put to rest. I felt like i was his only patient sometimes.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Csft75 - Waldorf, MD

I have been to Dr. Fontana for various reasons over the years. Lower blepheroplasty, a facelift, and juvederm treatments, to mention a few, and I trust him to be upfront and honest with me. He is friendly and has patience and takes the time to discuss treatments at length. I have been elsewhere for a small procedure several years ago, but much prefer Dr. Fontana. I highly recommend him as...

5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Wonderful Surgeon!! Highly recommended!

Dr. Fontana is the best cosmetic surgeon in my opinion. I have been to a few cosmetic surgeons. He has a wonderful bed side manner, he cares a great deal about his patients. His staff are very nice, professional and knowledgeable. I had 3 major procedures by Dr. Fontana, he is NOT about the money. If he doesn't think you need a procedure done, he tells you. His primary concern is for the...

Umbilicoplasty - Waldorf, MD
