Dr. Giuffrida is extremely knowledgeable, honest, nice and professional. My experience with him and his staff was very satisfying. I'm so very happy with the results of my neck lift. I'll be returning to him for all of my cosmetic needs. Thank you, Dr.

Dr. Giuffrida has a wonderful manner! Honest with levels of expectations, targeted questions and concerns with my areas of body fat. I wanted it eliminated and he worked his wonders through a Sacramento office and I am transformed! He offered no empty promises, I wanted rainbows and unicorns and he offered reality. And delivered reality! Walked me through what to expect, realistic expectations and that I too was responsible for my success. Provided support with tremendous follow through!

After many reconstructive surgeries, my body was not the same. All the dieting was not getting rid of my the fat around my torso. I went to see Dr Giuffrida. I told him what was bothering me. He was kind and sympathetic to my situation. He performed liposuction to my upper abdomen, lower abdomen, waist and lower back. The entire procedure was amazing. I felt terrific and returned to work the next day!! For me it was life changing!! I HIGHLY recommend him. You won't be sorry!!
