5 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Energetic, Positive, and Confident Surgeon!

My experience with Dr. Johnson was absolutely amazing. I found her by chance after having issues with getting scheduled with a couple of other surgeons for a bilateral mastectomy with nipple grafts. I only saw a few pictures of her work but I was pleased with what I saw and immediately scheduled a consultation. I knew from the moment I met with her that she was the surgeon for me--she had...

5 out of 5 stars FTM Chest Masculinization Surgery

Step 2 of Becoming Jacob

Dr Melissa Johnson is a warm and caring individual. She is friendly and is always smiling. She was reassuring with any and all concerns I had both during the consultation appointment and the day of surgery. Her staff carries her example well - all warm, friendly and made me feel that they were excited to be on my journey with me to have the 'top surgery' as part of my gender reassignment process.

3 Weeks Post Op - Springfield, MA

I am amazed how immediately my neck and numb hands went away immediately after surgery! Back pain gone too. Would do it again in a heart beat. My insurance covered the cost. I came home hours after surgery and the next morning stopped pain meds and switched to Tylenol. I took pain meds st night for 2 more nights then nothing. There really wasn't a lot of pain just tired all the time for the...

I Have my Surgery Date!

Hello everyone. I have finally made the decision to do the surgery. It is scheduled for Nov. 22, 2016. I am 56 years old and large breasts on my 120 small frame have been a lifetime of pain. I am a 34DDD however I don't think that is right as I think I am larger but just haven't re-measured and I am tired of spending a fortune on bras that don't fit! I have 2 herniated discs in my neck...

54 Years Old, Two Children, Many Surgerys and Struggled with Weight for Years - Springfield, MA

I could not be happier. I am 8 weeks post op and feel like a new women. I dropped two sizes and look completely different. I amaze myself every day when getting dressed. I still can't believe it's my belly. My incision was done beautifully. And I now have a perfect belly button. 4.5 lbs of excess skin was removed, which took away all stretch marks and scars from previous surgerys. 5...

amazing - Springfield, MA

Dr. Johnson is a very caring, thorough, and amazing plastic surgeon in my honest opinion. I went in for breast reduction not sure if the size I wanted was too big or too small and she wasn't afraid to tell me what she thought was best for me medically. She has a demeanor that puts you at ease immediately. No matter when I called after my surgery she was available to see me - even if just to put my mind at ease. I couldn't be happier. I would highly recommend her!

53 Year Old Transgender Woman Who Received Breast Augmentation from Dr. Johnson - Springfield, MA

I wanted to thank Dr. Melissa Johnson for performing my breast augmentation.
