I have had 2 breast cancers and my bought led me to a bi-lateral mastectomy in 2010. After almost 9 years the implants were not what they should be. I was treated previously at MGH and Brigham & Women's and switched over to Dr. Taylor at Mt. Auburn because of her high credentials and, once you meet her, she is so reassuring, thoughtful and, of course, highly skilled! After discussions with Dr. Taylor we decided to do a little tummy work and use the fat from the tummy to help with rebuilding the radiated side of one breast. The results are amazing! Complicating the issue was a leakage in the other implant! She was able to cleanse and remove and replace. She is wonderful and so is her staff! I couldn't be more pleased with her time and reassurance at every step. Her enthusiasm and compassion to help me in this phase of my post-cancer treatments was only what I would say relaxing, strange as that sounds. I knew I was in good hand! I would highly recommend Dr. Taylor.

I (28F) always knew that I was going to have a breast reduction eventually (36DDD). I began meeting with plastic surgeons, having consultations, and doing research several years ago when I began to have severe back and shoulder issues. But once I met Dr Taylor, I felt comfortable and taken care of instantly. I made the decision that day that I was going to go ahead with the procedure right away, and I'm so happy with the end results! They are perfect, light, proportionate, and lifted! Thank you!

Dr. Helena Taylor performed surgery on my Fibrous Dysplasia. She was a kind, wonderful person from the beginning. She spent enough time, thoroughly explaining the procedure, & making me feel comfortable and confident. She went above & beyond to be very accommodating for my schedule. She performed the surgery flawlessly, & it turned out better than expected. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of an excellent plastic surgeon. She is an excellent surgeon & a very caring person.

Dr. Taylor recently performed my breast reduction. I could not be happier with the results so far. From the initial evaluation to the recent post surgical follow up appt, it has been a wonderful and validating experience. She is a brilliant surgeon who is easy to talk to, and makes you feel as though she is going on this experience with you. I've had little pain with no complications. I feel privileged to have her as my doctor. Her office staff is upbeat, responsive, and kind. No regrets!

I had a breast reduction with Dr. Taylor in April. The office is cleanly, professional, and comfortable. I scheduled an appointment for a conslutation with her on a whim, just after seeing reviews online. They're all right. I could not have imagined a better doctor to go through this procedure with. This was my first major surgery, and I went through the majority of it alone. Despite how nervous I was, Dr. Taylor made me calm and comfortable, and was incredibly knowledgable. Thank you so much.

I highly reccomend Dr. Helena Taylor. I had my bilateral upper blepharoplasty done in the office and could not be happier with the result. The entire experience was great!

All of the staff in Dr Taylors office were professional and courteous! Dr Taylor was on time and answered all of my questions. My surgery went well and I would use Dr Taylor again for me and my family. I highly recommend her

The option to have plastic surgery was fraught with anxiety, but in the end I decided it was time for a change. Dr. Taylor was not only professional in explaining my options, but too, she was very compassionate. It was obvious to me that she had a very sincere interest in my surgery's successful outcome. Here I am 2 wks after my surgery, and can honestly say that my only regret was not having met Dr. Taylor, and her incredible staff-Giselle and Eric-sooner; I would have had this done years ago!
