    My daughter had a breast reduction. Many problems with infections and dr Greco redid a "section" in office. The scarring is terrible. The incisions are totally in the wrong place as far as camouflaging any scarring. She looks like she has been butchered. She was corresponding by email with Dr Greco for a few weeks but he totally stopped responding. I'd take her back there but the fact he completely stopped responding to her emails and the way Hayes liooks now, I wil take her to another surgeon.

    I had a tummy tuck & some liposuction. I was told that the liposuction would be the most painful. I did not feel that was the case for me. I thought it was totally tolerable & much less painful than I had expected. As anyone would be prior to this type of surgery, I felt a bit nervous. Dr. Greco's staff was excellent in making me feel less anxious, and they were right. The nurses who stayed with me through the night were wonderful & I couldn't be happier with the results.
