5 out of 5 stars Breast Implants

Could Not Be Happier with my Result! - Huntington, NY

I had heard about Dr. James Romanelli from a friend who had liposuction. He was by far the nicest doctor I’d ever met and he put all my fears to rest about having the procedure. The cost was less than I had feared & they had availability 2 weeks after my initial consultation. The procedure was fast and my recuperation was incredible. I could not be happier with my results!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Excellent!! - Huntington, NY

Had a breast augmentation with dr romanelli on Jan 2. I had 300 cc's unders. I have been very happy so far. Dr Romanelli, the anesthesiologist and staff were all wonderful. Recovery has been great. I was able to raise my hands over my head the evening of surgery. I felt back to normal after 36 hours and only needed pain meds for first 24 hours. Had surgery Thursday and back to work...

When I first met with Dr. Romanelli, he listened carefully to my concerns and focused immediately and made me feel like I was in the best hands possible. And I was. The injections were precise and the results simply exquisite. He is remarkable. Highly recommend him for any procedure (my girlfriend had a breast reduction and his work was amazing! -barely any visible scarring at all!

Awesome Tummy Tuck!

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

43 Year Old, Breast Augmentation, Lypo and Restilane - Huntington, NY

Dr. Romanelli was recommended by a friend. I had Restilane, lypo on the saddles & inner thighs, and a breast augmentation. The doctor spent a lot of time addressing all my questions - both before and after the surgery. I was given a 3D imaging of how my breasts will look like and the assessment was very realistic. He has excellent bedside manner. Very calm, very knowledgeable. After care and follow ups were great. I never had to wait more than 5 minutes for my appointments, the office is very clean, the staff is very professional. I am very happy with the results. I never felt rushed, things were very professional from start to finish, I liked that the labwork was well timed so that I had enough time to take care of both the mammogram and the tests w/o any pressure. The surgery was early in the morning, my husband and daughter were with us in the room when they were readying me and the doctor introduced his team and explained everything to me and my family. Things were very well organized. I will definitely use this surgeon again. Thank you, Dr. Romanelli.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck & BR. Long Island, NY

Dr. Romanelli is great ps. I chose him based on reviews of him on a local message board. When I met him he explained he would leave me flat. I was doubtful because I am a curvy girl to begin with layers of skin. When I asked about the drain he said he tries not to use them but I may need only one. There was something very comforting yet matter of fact about him and I went with my gut. I also appreciated that he understood what I wanted in terms of my reduction smaller but not small. My breasts look great. I was pleasantly surprised to wake up and have had no drains. This definitely made my recovery a lot better and I was able to walk around and recover faster. I can't imagine having to deal with drains now. I have had a very good recovery. No infection, no seromas etc. I highly recommend him and his office staff, Theresa, Juliette, Allison are the not least bit obnoxious as other places I had called. Even his nurse Joanne and Filipino nurse (forgot name) and anthesthesiologist were nice and comforting too. I highly recommend Dr. Romanelli. He put together a great team. I got great results. I never feel bad calling them and my follow up appointments have been pleasant.
