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%

Can't Wait to Feel SEXY Again ( . Y . )

Hello, I am a 29 year old mother of 2. Currently I am a sad 34A, some bras I barely even fill. For as long as I could remember I wanted a BA but either the timing wasn't right or financially I just couldn't afford it, Jersey is just so expensive! Well, last August my father passed away from pancreatic cancer, he was diagnosed on July 14 and died August 14. It was super aggressive! I was...

The BEST Surgeon Around!! West Orange, NJ

Dr. Tutela and his staff are absolutely phenomenal! They're professional, friendly, overall amazing. Before I had the procedure done I had previously went to two other surgeons for consultations and then number 3 was Dr Tutela. After being with him for just 5 minutes I knew he was the one! He takes many measurements as well as takes the time to see what your looking for, he's able to answer...

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

About 2 weeks from my surgery! Getting a little nervous about pain post op, however I believe I have a pretty high pain tolerance. I hit the gym 5 days a week and used to devote an entire day to chest but stopped that about 2 months ago when I decided to go through with this. (Didn't want my chest muscles to be huge because I felt it would make recovery worse) I am 5'4 , 135 pounds, 32 C not...

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...
