5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Tummy Tuck 9 weeks post-op

My experience with Dr. Subbio was more than I could hope for. He was very patient, extremely knowledgeable, and treated me as if I was a family member. Even through my recovery, he provided me with his personal cell phone and responded to every text and call in a matter of minutes and never once made me feel like a bother. I am completely happy with my overall experience and truly love my results!

46yo 3 Kids Barely A Cup to Full B/Small C - Philadelphia, PA

From the visit Dr Subbio made me feel very comfortable. He explained everything and even drew some diagrams to explain things in detail. His staff is very sweet, not stuck up or condescending like other plastic surgery offices. Dr Subbio listened and even repeated to me what I said I was looking for then showed the best way to achieve my goal. I went back for a second consultation with some more questions. Most places would not be happy about that and may charge for the visit- not Subbio. He called the night after the procedure and the next day and answered his cellphone on the weekend when I had a question. He cares about his patients and the work he does. He is ALWAYS on time!! I work with doctors and that never happens, especially on surgery days! Meet him and you will see what I'm talking about.

Also watching the surgery online out of curiosity (highly don't recommend) lol. Dr. Subbio made me feel extremely comfortable and ensured me that I would love the results . I had a lot of extra skin...

Just read you'll be happy you did

I cannot put into words just how AMAZING Dr. Subbio is! I went to see him after a "botched" breast augmentation. From the second I walked into the office I felt at home his staff is so warm and welcoming. Dr. Subbios personality, disposition, and knowledge is evident from the second you meet him. I had some issues due to the other surgeon and his calming yet proactive approach and made me...

Breast reduction amazing result

From the moment I met Dr. Subbio I felt at ease. His office is beautiful and his staff is kind and down to earth. Dr. Subbio gives all of his patients his cell phone number which really added to my comfort. Since surgery I feel amazing, physically and mentally. Dr. Subbio's post surgery care and attention is just as good as his pre surgery care. I recommend him to any and everyone.
