    I wanted a tummy tuck for years, but was scared to take the first step. After meeting with Dr. Paletta, I was put at ease. He is patient and caring and never made me feel pressured to do anything. His staff is courteous and helpful. Now 8 weeks after my procedure, I can say my results are nothing short of amazing! He is wonderful surgeon I would recommend to anyone. Should I decide to get anything else done in the future, I couldn't imagine going to anyone else.
