Male 27, Hated my nose bump. Best thing I've done!

I was immediately comfortable with him & his preference for modest natural results especially appealed to me. His staff is wonderful & the office is clean, modern, & friendly. He has won Boston's Best Cosmetic Surgeon for many years now.

5 out of 5 stars FTM Chest Masculinization Surgery

FTM Peri Areolar Keyhole Surgery Method. Boston, MA

He was great, explained everything in detail. Took his time to make my chest look really good. He did want to make an extra incision on my left side but I was more worried about having noticeable scars than skin laxity. Everyone in his office was really respectful and took care of everything related to getting my insurance to cover surgery.

I know I am so happy because of Dr. Bartlett. After meeting with him for the first time, I knew he was going to do a wonderful job.
