5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

I Wish I Had Done This Earlier!! - Newton Center, MA

I was having a lot of physical discomfort, neck pain, skin issues, from large, heavy breasts. My primary care physician recommended a reduction. It has made a huge difference in my quality of life. I no longer have grooves on my shoulders from my bra straps, my neck pain is better and my clothes fit better.

I have been waiting to have this surgery since I had my first child. With breastfeeding and pregnancy my breasts went down in cup size and appearance.

I had excess,saggy,wrinkley skin on my eyes lids that made me look 15 years older than I was. I couldn't be happier that I decided to do the surgery, it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I don't even consider it surgery, recovery was much easier than I expected. I. Took 3 days off of work, had no pain at all. I look more rested and younger now!

5 out of 5 stars Botox

Hydrafacial and Botox - Newton, MA

I recently visited Dr. Russo's office for a consult and left 10 years younger. My consult was with Tara. My concerns were enlarged pores, unevenness, and the beginning of some "11"s and a scar on my forehead. The scar was very small and superficial but a wrinkle was emphasizing it. She suggested a series of hydrafacials, laser genesis and Botox. She also suggested that I start using a retinol...

24 Years Old, Thin and Athletic Pageant Girl - Norwood, MA

I was extremely pleased with Dr. Russo's staff from the minute I walked in. Mind you, I was very nervous. I never had a real operation before. He told me his honest opinion of his work right off the bat which is a natural look:exactly what I was going for. I appreciate his honesty, As I've been to another consultation and it felt like the doctor just wanted to tell you what you wanted to...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

23 with Flat Chest and Wider Hips, 5'8 125 - Boston, MA

I had always waited for my boobs to come in after puberty, but they just never did so I was stuck with bigger hips and a tiny upper frame that made me feel very boy-ish and disproportional. I decided to go with gummy bear implants, sub muscular, size 440cc. My surgeon advised me this would be the largest I could comfortably go without having too much "side-boob" hangover that might interfere...
