5 out of 5 stars Tumescent Liposuction

Circumferential Tumescent Liposuction of the Trunk Area (Upper and Lower Abdomen & Flanks) - North Charleston, SC

This staff has it going on! I could not have asked for a better experience! Dr. Terranova is a walking textbook/latest magazine periodical. I had really researched everything before seeing him but he knew and explained even more to me. He was very warm and engaging and the staff were like little Sunday school teachers. Especially Deborah. She went above and beyond to make me comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process. A+

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Tuberous Breast Correction & Augmentation, (6/28/12). My girls are finally here! - North Charleston, SC

I chose Dr. Terranova because of his extensive knowledge about breast augmentation, his many credentials and accolades as well as the fact that he answered every question that I had and was very patient. He also did my tumescent liposuction of my entire abdomen 3 months ago. I found out about him through the internet and decided to come on in and see how we gelled. I am so glad I did!

5 out of 5 stars Scar Removal

I Love my New Stomach (Scar Revision) - Summerville, SC

I had scar revision done by Dr. Terranova. I had a surgical nightmare from a medical situation I had. Due to a Dr's serious errors and disregard for my well being, what was suppose to be only one surgery turned into 14 surgery's and over three years of illness and near death. My stomach was a complete mess caused by the many surgery's and illness. I wanted it fixed, but I didn't have much hope...

5 out of 5 stars Panniculectomy

Panniculectomy with Liposuction of Anterior Abdomen, Back & Bra Line and Auxillary Breast Tails - North Charleston, SC

Ok so March of 2012, I had circumferential tumescent lipo done to my full abdominal trunk. Because of the stretch marks below my navel from my pregnancy six years ago, my doctor told me that I would have loose skin in that area after the fat was removed. Don't get me wrong, I love, love, love the results of my lipo and I went on to get breast augmentation in June of 2012 (you can check for...

Dr. Terranova is a excellent surgon and a very caring Dr. I had the best experience using him as my surgon and will use him again if I ever decide to do any other kind of cosmetic surgery.

5 out of 5 stars Panniculectomy

29 Year Old Mom Taking Care of ME - North Charleston, SC

Dr Terranova is amazing! He let me know what to expect realistically. Wasn't just trying to earn a $. He has been calling my husband to check up on me and I feel like he really cares about his patients. Also his office staff is so sweet. The anesthialogist (sp?) put me in ease as I was so scared walking into that room.def recommend him to anyone. I'm one day post op right now
