4 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Good choice

Dr. Howrigan did my Breast Reduction in 1990. I am still very happy with the results. I always said it was the best decision I made. I was 17 a few weeks from turning 18 years old. My teen years were tough for me physically but because of this surgery I was no longer physically limited. I wasn't able to nurse effectively or as much as I would have liked to. That's my only regret. But it was a...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

21 Year Old Finally Getting the Reduction I've Wanted for 5 Years! - Wellesley, MA

Dr.Howrigan is absolutely amazing. She is kind, caring, and precise. I've read some reviews that attack her bedside manner but in my experience, Dr.Howrigan is exceptional in her communication. She is 100% professional and she won't try to sell you anything or convince you to have something done that you don't need.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

36, 3 Breastfeed Kids, Returned to having volume following Post-kid deflation - Wellesley, MA

I couldn't be happier with my result. I know they still have a bit more to settle, but I have exactly what I wanted. I was a deflated C, and now am a full C, or small D. I look completely natural, and other than my friends, no one has even noticed the change. I did this for me and I love the result. I feel like myself again.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

57 Year Old, 60 Lb Weight Loss, Tummy Tuck & Bit of Liposuction & Some Facial Fat Grafting (Why Not I Was Already Asleep!) - MA

Dr. Howrigan is an artist! She has helped me change my life. She is direct, and explains things well. I felt safe in her capable hands.

my breast reduction is less than 2 weeks away - Wellesley, MA

I couldn't have chosen a better plastic surgeon. Dr. Howrigan is such a caring professional. She is great at explaining things, answering my questions, and never made me feel rushed at my appointments. Her office staff is also great! I never had to wait more than 5 minutes in her waiting room.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

New pics!! 3 weeks PO..Spanx? Feeling lumpy and bruised... Still! - Boston, MA

I am a mother of 2 children and ever since the birth of my daughter (now 6) I have been longing to have this extra skin REMOVED! I have been on this website so many times but never got the courage to move forward. One question I have that I can't seem to find the answer to, is how important is it or is it worth it to have an overnight hospital stay following your tummy tuck? I really feel like...

5 out of 5 stars Mommy Makeover

17 months later STILL So Worth It! TT-No Muscle Repair, BL/BA (325cc silicone)

I am a mother of 3 and after the birth of my first child I was left with a sagging stomach full of stretch marks. I had my daughter 11 years ago and now at the age of 33 I am divorced and the thought of another man seeing my body creeps me out. So... I am regaining my self confidence and my body and I couldn't be more excited about it. In one week from today I will be having a full...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Hernia Repair with Tummy Tuck - Boston, MA

Dr. H came highly recommended by the entire hospital staff. She is professional, honest, and just a good surgeon. She did a beautiful job with my incision and that was my primary concern.
