Dr. Riolo's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Riolo "Plastic Surgeon Dr. Kaye Riolo offers experience, compassion, and professional care to her patients. Her Central California plastic surgery practice is dedicated to helping busy, modern day women (and men!) look their best at any age. Whether you’re considering a BOTOX® injection or a breast reconstruction procedure, a Mommy Makeover, or a fuller head of hair for Dad, Dr. Riolo will listen carefully to your ideas and concerns, inform you of your various options, and help you arrive at a decision about how and when to proceed. You will appreciate Dr. Riolo’s philosophy to evaluate each patient’s full potential. And her commitment to perform only those procedures that, with her medical training and extensive experience, are best suited for your overall objectives. Dr. Riolo graduated with honors from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh with a Bachelor’s Degree in nursing. With her nursing background, she gained an appreciation for a well-rounded approach to patient care. After earning her Bachelor’s Degree, Dr. Riolo completed pre-med courses and went on to attend medical school at the University of Pittsburgh. She found her nursing background extremely valuable. She graduated in the top of her class and was admitted to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. After graduating from medical school, Dr. Riolo completed general surgery training at the University of Rochester, NY. She spent a year acquiring additional training in craniofacial surgery, specifically caring for children with facial birth defects. Her plastic surgery training was completed at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. As a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Riolo performs a wide spectrum of plastic and reconstructive surgery. She also has a special focus on cosmetic procedures for individuals who want to look as good as they feel by enhancing the beauty that is already within them. Dr. Riolo is pleased to offer her patients a variety of procedures, spanning the entire spectrum of plastic and reconstructive surgery, including non-surgical options such as facial fillers and injectables, which she administers herself. Dr. Riolo has performed plastic surgery in her practice since 1991, beginning in Illinois. To support her family, she first moved her practice to Pennsylvania and then, in 2002, to Fresno. Dr. Riolo launched her own solo Practice in late 2013. This has enabled her to create the calm, nurturing environment that she feels is essential for a personalized, thoughtful approach to each individual’s concerns."

This is my second breast augmentation with Dr. Riolo, and both times have been absolutely amazing. Whenever I had any doubts, or would change my mind, she was always willing to listen and give me her honest advice. I love her and the stuff, and my new boobs.
