I had two major surgeries completed by Dr. Garramone. A breast augmentation in 2008 and a lower face and neck lift in 2014. I can only speak very highly of Dr. Garramone's honest assessment of my concerns and surgery outcomes along with his excellent surgical skills. I had no complications, healed quickly and well and my results continue to be outstanding. The staff has always been very professional, kind and personable. I would recommend Dr. Garramone and his team to anyone desiring cosmetic surgery.

Absolutely horrible breast reconstruction after a bilateral mastectomy. When he got done I look like I had two footballs sideways in my chest. I’ve heard people raving about his augmentation but he does not do a good job with reconstruction. I would be hesitant to recommend him to anybody based on that alone.

I think they are very professional And give you the look you want. I had a tummy tuck in the past and it came out perfect. I’ve had lipi and injections to the butt for enhancement and still recovering.

very irresponsible, rude and does not accept the poorly done of their jobs I say this from my own experience with him and now I have to pay someone else again to correct his mistakes

Very little difference noticed after surgery. There is a reason no photos are offered on his website for facelifts.
