5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

39 Mother of 4 BA with Lift - Brookline, MA

Dr. Tantillo is a wonderful doctor who answered all my questions and went over my procedure in detail. He's always available through email and phone. He's very compassionate and makes you feel very comfortable and always letting me know to contact him if I have any concerns or questions. His office gave me a lot of information even before I went into my consultation so I could be prepared. At the consultation he took lots of measurements and after listening to what I was hoping to look like after BA he gave me a starting # with cc's. He let me try on different sizers with my tops. I ended up choosing the #he have me as a starting point. After reading all these reviews I got nervous about not going big enough so at my pre-op I voiced my concerns to Dr. Tantillo and asked him if I could try on the sizers again. He was very accommodating and took me into the other room to try different sizers again. I went with my original choice and so happy I did. My surgery went really well, the operating room staff are the funnest group of ladies. They made me feel so relaxed. I never needed anything more than Advil for pain and that was only for a few days. It was really just first thing in the morning too. You can't even really see that he went all around my areola. (I needed a lift and wanted my large areola's smaller) He's a perfectionist and it shows. I would highly recommend Dr.Tantillo to anyone who is looking into a BA. You won't be disappointed.

I Couldn't Be Happier with my Results! - Brookline Village, MA

Dr. Tantillo is patient, professional, and warm. He took all the time I needed during my consultation, and was an absolute perfect selection as my surgeon for my procedure. He is accomplished and well-known, yet humble and very caring. My results speak to the precision of his technical abilities.

23 Years Old, Breast Augmentation - Brookline, MA

I had my breast augmentation with Dr. Tantillo about 5 months ago. I am extremely happy with my results! My breasts look extremely natural and perfect for my small frame. They just look better and better over time and I feel so confident in swimsuits and lingerie now. I'm glad I got my breast augmentation so young because now I can enjoy my new look for the rest of my life! Recovery was very...

Dr. Tantillo is very relaxed and answers all your questions whatever you may need!! I only saw one other doctor before choosing doctor Tantillo but as soon as I went in for my consultation I knew he was the one! Very informative. Took photos and everything even at my consultation. I also saw him once a week after my surgery for the first month. He really did care to make sure everything went well even AFTER my procedure. I also emailed him a couple times regarding post op instructions and other minor things and he got back to me very quickly. I would recommend him to anyone and I love my results so much!! Thank you!

Sientra Textured Shaped Round Base High Projection silicon 300cc subpectoral inframammary implants

Dr. Tantillo's consultation was informative and relaxed. He was the third Dr. I visited, so to be fair I had much more specific questions for him (I was better prepared). He was the only Dr. that took a picture of me, printed it out and drew on it to confirm that he understood the natural slope I desired. I had many questions as the surgery day approached which were handled mostly by his staff (Sukanya and Blakely - the Physician's Asst.) Sukanya answered my emails in a timely manner and mostly made me feel fine about asking anything as much as I needed. Blakely spent a lengthy phone call with me helping me to understand new issues that I thought might arise with the choice we had made. On the day of the procedure Dr. Tantillo seemed to remember me (I had only met with him twice before) and was super nice. The procedure experience was fast, comfortable and the staff was AMAZING! My first post-op appointment was fast, the assistant took out the stitches, said everything looked great and explained how to care for them until the next visit. Dr. Tantillo came in briefly to check 'em out and was very pleased with their progress. I had questions after he left and they had no problem bringing me to his office to talk to him directly until I was satisfied. He's a great Dr. and I really would recommend him to anyone! I'm at the 3 week mark, so we'll see how the next 5 months go!

Dr Tantillo Is incredibly calming and reassuring. I was very anxious about my consultation and Dr Tantillo has the amazing ability of putting his patients at complete ease. What I admire most about him is his honesty and realistic expectations. He guides and supports you but ultimately leaves the final decision up to you.

I love this office. The staff, the procedures and Dr. Tantillo are fabulous. I had breasts lifts, augumentation, tummy tuck and butt lift. The staff from beginning to end took unbelievable care of me. The day of the surgeries, the made me feel relaxed. People compliment me all the time. I'm so glad I found Dr. Tantillo. Best thing I ever did.

Turning 50 and Finally Working on "Me".... - Brookline, MA

I had a great experience with Dr. Tantillo. I had an idea of what I wanted to accomplish, he listened to my concerns, goals, etc and then made a recommendation based on MY body type and goals. I didn't feel like it was a "standard approach" at all and that he takes great pride in his work to achieve the desired goals of the patient. I felt comfortable trusting his recommendation. I had some concerns/pain about day 3-4 after the surgery and Dr. Tantillo returned my call and responded to my concerns in a timely manner.

19 Years Old - Mastopexy / Breast Augmentation/Reconstruction - Great Experience. - Brookline, MA

Ever since I began to go through puberty, I felt that my breasts weren't "right". Not only were they smaller than I wanted (most girls feel this way), but the left breast was droopy and lifeless, while the right was practically flat against my chest with no shape at all. It was the equivalent of having a C cup on one side and less than an A on the other. I have very athletic shoulders, a small...
