5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation


Great doctor. So caring and nice :) He did the measurements and knew exactly what size implants I should get. I love my result, it still looks nature while fuller and perkier at the same time :) I definitely recommend him 100%

When Child Bearing Does You Wrong, but Tuela Makes It Right ! - Livingston NJ

Dr.Tutela is one of the friendliest, kind hearted surgeon you will meet. When I went in for my initial consultation with Dr.Tutela, I had already seen a couple surgeons before him. Not once did I feel comfortable with them as I did with Dr.Tutela. I put all my trust in him, I went into surgery not really knowing what size I was going to wake up with because I was certain he knew best. I am beyond thrilled with my results ! Thank you Dr.Tutela

24 Years Old, No Kids, Want Bigger, Currently Measure at a Full 32 C. Livingston, NJ

Dr. Tutela did my surgery yesterday, I couldn't be more pleased with him! He is such a caring sweet person. Really listens to what you want. As soon as he walked in to talk to me yesterday I felt at ease and knew my surgery would go just fine. He has such an upbeat, positive personality and I wouldn't trust anyone else to operate on me. My consultation, he spent an hour and a half with me talking to me about what I want and even showed me pictures. He was very thorough in explaining everything from how the surgery will go, the complications that can happen and etc. I went to 4 surgeons before choosing him and I can honestly say he spent the most time with me and didn't make me feel rushed in anyway. He also took so many measurements to let me know which size, shape, and profile would be best suited for me! I drove an hour and a half to see him and to be operated on and would do it again in a heart beat! He's the best!

Dr. Tutela Put my Mind at Ease - Livingston, NJ

Dr. Tutela put my mind at ease! I had to undergo breast surgery this winter to have a large benign (thank god) tumor removed. In my first consultation with my breast surgeon she said, "You're going to need to see a plastic surgeon." That scared me to death. Well my doctor recommended Dr. Tutela and I'm so glad she did! His positive, friendly, and calm demeanor immediately put my mind at...
