My wife had a tummy tuck with liposuction and we are both absolutely thrilled with Dr. Restifo and his team. They took excellent care of my wife during her pre-operative evaluation, during the procedure, and have been exceptional during the six months since. We highly recommend this team and have referred several of our friends.

I'm a women of 58 years old and was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a double mastectomy. Dr. J. Restifo was one of the Reconstructive Breast surgeons on the list to choose from at Smillow Breast center. It was about a year to finally finish with surgery healing and recovery. I feel so Blessed to have chosen the right surgeon. Dr. Restifo is to me the most talented and gifted surgeon in his field! He is compassionate and a caring doctor! Dr. Restifo takes all the time you need to answer all your concerns. Always kind and never rushes through your appointments. I have to say I feel completely whole in mind and spirit with the beautiful work that he did. My breast are beautiful! I always had small breasts and always wanted to be a bit bigger and now I have the breasts I always wanted. They are more beautiful than before. You can barely tell that so much surgery was done. Its hard to believe when I look at myself they are not my own. Of course I would never want to go through this to get these beautiful breasts. As for the team that works with Dr. Restifo they are the finest. Amanda his PA was absolutely wonderful! I just loved her. Jackie his nurse and the receptionist can't be any more kind to you! So if you want the best don't hesitate to call on Dr. Restifo to rebuild the most important part of your body your Breasts!!!! I Just Love them all!!!

I found Dr. Restifo by researching online. He is very friendly, confident, knowledgeable. He and his staff answered all of my questions and made me feel very calm and confident going into the surgery. Love him and would definitely go back to him for another procedure. From the first visit I knew I made the right decision. Dr. Restifo made me feel completely confident and excited about the procedures and the results have by far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Dr. Restifo for any cosmetic surgery procedure.

Absolutely happy with my decision and results! No regrets! I was looking to have Breast Augmentation done and after research I found Dr. Restifo, I then started to talk to people about the decision and the comments and recommendations I heard from other people about him made me even more confident on my decision. I was of course nervous a few weeks before the surgery at my pre-op. but he made me feel so much better, he answered every question or concern I may have had with such professionalism and caring for me as a patient. I absolutely recommend Restifo and his well trained staff to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon. I love my new breasts and will use Restifo in the future.

Dr. Restifo and staff are fantastic! I had breast reduction surgery, February 2013. I thought the experience would be overwhelming and painful. That could not have been further from the truth. Dr. Restifo took his time with me, ensuring all my questions were answered. When it came time to discuss financing his office manager was very understanding that I was paying out of pocket and gave me several options for paying for the procedure. His office staff and nurses were wonderful. Very compassionate and caring. They greeted me each time I visited the office as though I was the only patient coming in for a visit that day. Dr. Restifo is extremely professional. His work is amazing. I had no post-op pain, I followed his recommendations to the letter and was able to get back to normal activity sooner than expected. If you are considering surgery, I strongly urge you to seek an opinion from Dr. Restifo.

I chose Dr. Restifo because of his bedside manner, credentials and his before and after photos and I could not be more pleased. His entire staff is extremely friendly. After I booked my surgery I started having regrets and when I called to have them "talk me off the ledge", Dr. Restifo called me personally and walked me through all my concerns and told me to come in for a second consultation. He really addressed all of my concerns and I was 100% confident going into my procedure. I am now 6 weeks post op and I am amazed by my results. My scar is nice and straight and thin and the placement is perfect. I can easily wear almost any style of bathing suit with no concerns! I also had liposuction of the flanks which helped give me that hourglass figure I vaguely remember having in my 20's!! And I think the thing I am most impressed with is my belly button - looks natural not stretched out. I have no regrets about having the surgery done and would definitly recommend Dr. Restifo to anyone

I had a breast augmentation 3 months ago with Dr. Restifo. If his pedigree wasn't impressive enough, that actual results were absolutely amazing. He knew the right size for my body and active lifestyle. After surgery, I couldn't believe that there wasn't one bruise on my body. Dr. Restifo was extremely professional and knowledgeable. I am SO happy with the results.
