Surgeon wasn't at all helpful after the surgery and claimed it looked fine when it obviously did not.

A life changing artist. Gifted. The best. I would and have recommended him in a second.

Dr. Gallico is wonderful! His bedside manner and personality are great! He made me feel at ease and like I was in very capable hands right away! He's a talented artist and sketches your face as well as uses the computer generated imaging. He understand my vision for what my nose should be without me explaining it well at all. He explained how each change would effect other parts of my nose and how to balance that. He took his time. I didn't feel rushed through the consult at all. During my recovery he was so understanding and accommodating that even though medically it was going very well, I was emotionally freaking out. He did everything he could to make me more comfortable and reassure me.

Seems like a nice guy, but he is VERY old. His skills are not what they once were.
1 out of 5 stars Liposuction
About 6+ years ago I went to Dr. Gallico for liposuction on my saddle-bags and inner-and-outter thighs. For context: Height: 5 2', weight: 104 pounds at the time, and a bikini/ lingerie model. I have maintained this weight until present. My thighs did not have any excessive amount of fat; just minor fat pockets i felt were out of proportion to the rest of my body. The first liposuction procedure performed by Dr. Gallico left me with uneven bulges around my outer thighs. I was devastated but Dr. Gallico assured me that this was normal and suggested I go in for a "touch-up" procedure (which was basically another full-on liposuction procedure). The second procedure went really badly and I ended up in the ER as I was having blurred vision in one eye. I informed the ER doc that I was less than 24hrs out of a liposuction procedure. The doc in the ER hypothesized that my surgeon (Dr. Gallico) likely kept me lying on my stomach for far too long during the surgery which could cause pressure to my face and subsequently my eye (so amateur!). Lastly, i did not see any results/ corrections from the 2nd procedure but was encouraged to wait a year for things to settle down. After a year when things only looked worse-- Again, Dr. Gallico suggested I go in for another touch-up. Please also keep in mind that I paid an additional $3,000-$3,500 for each additional "touch-up". Though it may sound incredibly stupid to most-- keep in mind I was 23 at the time and obviously very trusting of the doctors presumed expertise (i.e. Harvard-Yale graduate). Today, my thighs are so unsightly I could barely wear shorts due to the destruction caused to my thighs from the procedures. Upon seeing a corrective liposuction specialist I was told that I was essentially butchered and was even asked if it was done in a foreign country! Finally, it will cost nearly $20,000 to repair the damage Dr. Gallico did. I truly feel he exploited me and will do the same to others.
After reading hundreds of reviews on this site, and researching surgeons in my area, i decided to go for it. I had my consultation today at the boston center. Filled out some paperwork and was in for the consultation within minutes. They were all so helpful and as soon as i met my doctor I knew it would be a good fit. He was experienced, knowledgable, kind, and did not try to persuade me into...

The best treatment I could have been offered
2 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck
I have recently asked for the reports from the follow-up care for a hysterectomy scheduled later this month, so my ob/gyn has the full picture behind the incision. There is absolutely NO mention of my post-operative complications anywhere in my file. NONE. The secretary has refused comment. Disconcerting, to say the least.
