I highly recommend Dr. Restifo!! I am 55 & had very small breasts, (32AA) and recently had silicone gel over the muscle implants and I am totally thrilled with the results. I waited a long time for this surgery and wanted to make sure that they looked and felt natural, fit my frame (5'2", 112 lbs) and would allow me to comfortably resume my gymnastic style training which involves a lot of upper body, press work. I went for several consults and Dr. Restifo was the only Dr. that listened & understood my concerns and made me feel confident that he could achieve the result I was looking for and still continue my workouts without any loss of strength or animation. He & his staff were very patient with all of my questions & helped me choose the perfect size and type for what I was looking for. My surgery was so easy, no pain even the day of surgery, very easy recovery & the results far exceeded my expectations. They look and feel totally natural and I am a perfect 34 B!!! I am soooo happy!

My primary dr recommended Dr Restifo for a breast reduction. I had the breast reduction performed 3 weeks ago today and it has been such a great experience. Dr Restifo is extremely thorough and meticulous. He is an expert in his field and comes highly recommended . I felt very comfortable speaking with him about any and all concerns . My results far exceeded my expectations and I couldn’t be happier . Dr Restifo has the best office staff I have ever come across . Nurse Jackie is so professional , kind and compassionate . She responds immediately if you need to contact her by phone . All the office staff are all together lovely , the office has a family feel in an elegant environment.

Can not wait for my surgery. Dr. Restifo was so great in answering all my questions and made me feel at ease with everything. I trust him and know that I will have a great surgery with speedy recovery if I listen to his directions. Staff is WONDERFUL. Will be sad if / when Dr. Restifo retires :(

I had sagging breasts. I met with a lot of Drs. Dr. Restifo seemed to be the most knowledgable and experienced. I came out better than I had hoped.

My mother had a breast reduction years ago with Dr. Restifo and I needed the same thing. Although it was hard to convince my insurance(we had to appeal), finally it got approved. I was surprised at how easy the recovery was. After the surgery my back pain went away and I feel much better. I look much better, too. The incisions have healed really nicely. I recommend him to all my friends.

I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Restifo. I had spoken to several surgeons about my MM procedure but dr r inspired the most confidence. Although the recovery was a little morethan I expected(I know I was told but I think I chose not to hear), I am feeling great now. What is as important is that I look really really great.

I had too much going on in my lower back and my butt was pretty flat. Also I had a lot of fat in my stomach. Dr. Restifo took the fat and lifted my butt. My clothes fit much better now and I'm very happy with my new shape. He and his staff were really great and the surgicenter people in Trumbul were great too. Very great all around.
