5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

25, No Kids, 350 Moderate + Boston, MA

I had my consultation w Dr. Volpe and felt comfortable w him right away. I did my research for months before hand and really loved Dr Volpe's work. All of the before and afters were so well done and natural looking, which is what I'm going for. After trying on sizers and letting him know my goals, I was between 320 and 350- after I chose the 350 the Dr approved of the size because he thought I could carry them with my hips and backside. Because there's only a 2 tbsp ish difference and most women wish they had gone bigger I stuck with the 350. The morning of surgery he again explained everything thoroughly and reassured me with the few additional questions I had. The anesthesiologist was absolutely fantastic and extremely nice. Dr. Volpe made sure he called my bf after surgery to let him know I did fine, and I saw him 3 days after surgery. I recently saw him for my 6 week PO and I can start massages. He's very patient, very thorough, and overall gave me exactly what I wanted. Though my breasts are still healing, they look natural, are proportionate to my frame and exactly the size I was hoping for. I couldn't recommend him anymore!! ***UPDATE 4/7/17*** AMAZING! I had 350, moderate +, saline implants put in one year ago today. I'm 5'5 about 130 pounds and was an AA. I didn't want to go huge and just wanted them to look natural and Dr. Volpe knew exactly what I wanted! His bedside manner is exceptional and he really took the time to talk to me about the procedure and really put me at ease the morning of the surgery. I couldn't recommend him more!

25 Year Old. Lost Weight Years Ago and Needed Some Volume - Newton, MA

Well this was kind of a spur of the moment thing... I kind of just jumped in randomly and made an appointment for a consultation. It took forever to get in if I used the real self promotion for a free consultation. It was only $100 I think without the promotion but after waiting like 5 months to get into an opening or cancelation - I'm assuming - I just said screw the promotion and scheduled a regular consultation at cost. It went awesome. Dr. Volpe and his entire staff are AWESOME. I ended up coming up with a long list of questions I still wanted to ask after I got back home from my initial consultation, so I called and was able to get in to talk to Dr. Volpe a second time at my convenience. He sat with me for what seemed like over an hour and just answered everything I had to ask. I'm a nursing student which translates to a hypochondriac so he was extremely patient with me and my concerns. He smiled and said "fire away" when I warned him of my lengthy list, which was pretty comforting to hear. We then took a second trip to the room with all the implants for sizing and ended up picking a new size than what was previously agreed on; one that was much smaller at 325 cc mod profile instead of 425 cc high profile (I believe). On the morning of surgery I met with him and we went over our plans again and he taught me my deep breathing and leg exercises for post op and i felt pretty relaxed with the whole experience. I've already been in for my first post op appointment on the initial Friday after my surgery date (a Tuesday). He gave me a new support bra and band to wear. I'm going back for my 5 week post op in a few weeks. I'm now at one day and three weeks out of surgery and feeling great!

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Life Changing - Boston, MA

Dr. Volpe is a stellar surgeon, a perfectionist in the best way, and very good at explaining the procedures and recovery in a realistic light. He spent time, a lot of time, patiently listening to and answering all my questions. He is a very calming force, and present every step of the way. Dr. Volpe put me back together again. Today I jump rope with my kids, jog, play soccer, and the reflux is gone as is the chronic pain in my stomach and back. Thank you, Dr. Volpe, from the bottom of my heart.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

55 Years Young Tummy Tuck and Bbl - Newton, MA

My surgery was six weeks ago and I have nothing but praise for Dr. Volpe and his staff. Not only is he a highly skilled surgeon but he's also very compassionate and always available to answer questions or see me with any concerns. My procedures were done at the same time which made my recovery difficult but Dr.Volpe and his staff Marcella and Joanne were great, always available and willing...

26, 2 kiddos, mini TT and subtle BBL

I've utilized realself for a few years now but this is my first review. I was very close to booking a BBL and TT with a well known surgeon in Boston who specializes in BBLs, but was discouraged and alarmed by the disorganization of the virtual consult experience. I ended up finding Dr. Volpe by chance here on this website. His Tummy Tucks are beautiful! Some of the best I've ever seen. I...

Dr Volpe is absolutely amazing. He is very kind & honest. He made me feel very comfortable. I've only made it through the consult but after that one time in the office, I knew this would be the surgeon to do my implants.
