5 out of 5 stars Rhinoplasty

Dr Gentile Changed my Life - Akron, OH

He has been my dr since I was 13 years old.

5 out of 5 stars Facelift

Beautifully Changed My Life - Youngstown, OH

From day one, the staff and Dr.Gentile were courteous, attentive, and always working in my best interests. I would like to think I gave Dr.Gentile many referrals. His prices are reasonable, his expertise speaks for itself by the incredible results and his professionalism is evident by the time he devotes to his patients each and every visit. I have since moved across the country and have had follow up botox with other surgeons and all have commented on my "excellent work and impressive results that are still quite evident." Dr.Gentile's care for his patients is first and foremost, his skill is worth traveling back across the country for (my opinion and other consulted surgeons), and he gave me the intangible but very real self confident boost. Dr. Gentile is a quality surgeon in all aspects.

Surgery Done Baddly and then my Life Changed when I Met 'My Angel' Dr Gentile - Cleveland, OH

Dr Gentil was attentive, kind, listened to my needs, understanding and made me full comfortable. He was confident in his ability to better the outcomes of my nose with functionality and visual looks. I was very uneasy with going under the knife again after all the trauma I death with when I had my surgery done badly twice before by the same person. Dr Gentiles staff were reassuring and had confidence in Dr Gentiles ability to rectify my nose. Dr Gentile is a miracle worker and an angel and I am indebted to him, he saved my life and helped me be better with my self confidence and ability to go on and achieve my dreams in my professional career, so I thank Dr R Gentile for changing my life, thank you.

5 out of 5 stars Eyelid Surgery

Dr. Gentile Performed a Miracle on my Eyes! - Youngstown, OH

A picture is worth a thousand words! I'm including pictures and you can see for yourself. I am 50 years old, very physically fit and healthy, but to look at my face I looked very tired. I have unfortunely been passed on genetically some excess skin over an under my eyelids. I have fair skin and freckles so also skin damage from sun(that's mostly my fault)! I now have people commenting on my...

5 out of 5 stars Mini Lift

Mini Lift with Maximum Impact - Cleveland, OH

I did my research carefully, and after my consultation with Dr. Richard Gentile, I was absolutely certain I had chosen wisely and well. Dr. Gentile has the eye of an artist, is multiply licensed and is an ear, nose and throat doctor as well as a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, so he literally know the anatomy of the human head inside out. You only have one face: put it in the hands of a doctor who who knows what he is doing. Never go bargain hunting for a plastic surgeon; do it right the first time around. A little tidbit: Dr. Gentile made guest appearances on the t.v. show Dr. 90210, but you don't need to go to Hollywood to see him!

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

Very Invasive. Hardly No Down Time - Younstown, OH

He had done my fractional lazer, because of the great results from that and wonderful care and concern from both him and his amazing staff I would never go to anyone else. He is such an excellent doctor!

5 out of 5 stars Neck Lift

60 Year Old Woman in Need of a Necklift - Boardman, Ohio

Dr. Gentile spent time with me and answered all of my questions. He erased any doubts I may have had about having this procedure. The aftercare was very good and his staff always made me feel welcome and comfortable.

5 out of 5 stars Fraxel Laser

Full Face Fractional Laser & Lower Lid Blepharoplasty at 83, I Look 63 ! - Youngstown, OH

I just realized a did a review using my daughter's computer ( I don't have one) before she signed out of her account. so here's my story AGAIN ! I was a widowed 83 year old mother of five, grandmother & great-grandmother. I needed a new face ! My daughter had the fraxil laser done around her eyes and she looked so good, I wanted my whole face done ! I decided to have Dr. Gentile do my whole face and take the puffy bags out from under my eyes at the same time. He was so kind, sweet & gentile, treated me just like his own mother. His staff was comforting and kind as well. When I woke up my skin was immediately tighter & my bags were gone ! I am so happy that I had this done, even at my age ! I cannot thank Dr. Gentile enough, I actually cried a few days later because I was not in bondage to that old face anymore ! I will NEVER regret having this done, I would have paid even more, it was well worth it ! My daughter had fractional laser around her eyes. She look amazing ! I had to go see this doctor !

5 out of 5 stars Smart Lipo

Excellent Surgeon, with Excellent Bedside Manner! -Youngstown, OH

I cannot believe the garbage I have read on here about Dr. Gentile. I had the smart lipo procedure on my inner and outer thighs a couple of years ago. He spent so much time with me explaining the procedure and discussing my results. His bedside manner was never anything but excellent. After the surgery, I accidentally broke a couple stitches open and he was right on top of it - had me come in and re stitched me immediately. I had such good experiences this surgeon, that I even sent my mother to him for some laser resurfacing. Along with her, I sent my grandmother to him for a full facial fractional laser treatment. After that I sent my neighbor to him for a face lift and some laser resurfacing. All four of us were treated with the utmost respect and the surgeries he performed went very well. I do not understand how anyone on this site could write such a terrible review, when he is one of the most caring and qualified plastic surgeons out there.
