When you see a refreshed, beautiful "new" face and wonder "how?" And then you see another natural, lovely face...somehow, they are all going to Dr. Romano, "the artist." What better recommendation? A skilled surgeon who listens to exactly what you want, and then carefully creates it. In my case, I hoped for a look that was entirely me, only much better, which is exactly the result I received. Now when friends inquire, I say, "go to Dr. Romano, the artist."
And more: the Zone diet he encourages, pre-surgery, increases energy, tones the body and truly eliminates bruising. As well, his considerate staff makes sure all questions are answered, and checks progress regularly.
This is not only surgery, but an experience. Thank you, Dr. Romano.
Dr.J Romano,I can definitely say ,is the Best doctor, With superior artistic outlook ,and a great human I have met . I had the good luck to meet him and get couple of my facial surgeries done. I am lucky to have found him, as I was seeking a doctor, who can work on my face that had underwent multiple surgeries due to a trauma and to restore the aesthetic balance.The surgery was needed not only for the cosmetic enhancement, but also to restore my self esteem and confidence.
A great doctor can understand what one needs,recommend what is the best, suggest the approach to realize that desired outcome and can give you a new life and confidence.Dr.Romano did exactly that to me. He spent considerable time with me,started out by gathering what I am looking for and explained in every minute detail about the intricacies,complexities,recovery time,post surgery care and most importantly,set the expectation which was critical.He answered every single question I had .His expertise coupled with aesthetic perspective and artistry helped in me seeing the outcome via the precise computer imaging technology he employs in his consultations. That gave me the most accurate understanding of the results and for the first time, I felt comfortable and realized I am in front of the best . Added to this, is the fantastic support staff his office employed , who took care of everything to facilitate smooth surgical experience.
Post surgery,it turned out to be the exact same result explained before. It was a stunning change,yet natural and the result gave me almost everything I had ever wished. I had two surgeries, and both came out magical. It enhanced me ,aesthetically as well as in my personal outlook and this was the best outcome I can ever expect.
Without doubt,Dr Romano, stands to be the best in aesthetic surgery. I can vouch for this, because I have done tremendous research on various sites and doctors ,before meeting him. Without doubt, he is the best and and anyone contemplating on getting any cosmetic procedures, must visit him and you will know, you are in the best and safest hands . I shall forever be indebted to Dr.Romano, for all he did to me. Thanks Dr.Romano!
Natural Results from a Superb Surgeon/Artist – Dr. Romano is hands-down THE BEST plastic surgeon in the SF Bay Area.
His meticulous attention to detail, unparalleled artistry and superb skills as a surgeon earned him a rating in the top 1% nationally in plastic surgery in Castle Connolley's directory of Top Doctors. The results he was able to achieve for me recently have earned him a new lifelong patient!
I have to admit that I was nervous about going under the knife - again - to repair a 20 year old breast augmentation. My first surgery made my breasts bigger but they didn't look natural. But, as luck would have it, I recently developed an unsightly facial scar and I knew plastic surgery would probably be my best option for improvement. So I took the leap and decided to get these flaws fixed once and for all.
So off I went, researching various sites, reading patient reviews and thoroughly examining top surgeons' before and after pictures with a hypercritical eye. I did my due diligence and discovered Dr. Romano and I am so grateful that I did!
At my consultation, Dr Romano patiently fielded my questions and thoroughly explained my options. He was professional, focused and confident. After spending more than an hour with me, it was obvious that Dr. Romano was more knowledgeable and far more experienced than the other two plastic surgeons I previously evaluated.
Now, here I am, less than two weeks post op and absolutely thrilled with my results! Even now, still healing, my breasts look incredibly natural and my facial scar has improved dramatically. I also decided to treat myself to some liposuction to minimize my middle-age middle and Dr. Romano's artistic talent is clearly evident in my newly sculpted body!
Electing to have surgery is never an easy decision but, if performed in the right hands, it can really make a profound difference in your self-esteem.
For me, the hard decision was to undergo surgery...the easy decision (and the best decision) was selecting Dr. Romano.
If you are contemplating any plastic surgery, do yourself a favor and select Dr. Romano. He is simply the best and you deserve it.
Nature did not make all men equal, but Dr. Romano can help l – Samuel Colt made men equal in the Old West and Dr. Romano makes men equal in our current Information Age.
About 12 years ago I shopped around for the best plastic surgeon and found Dr. Romano. I had lipo all over, my eye lids lifted, belly button tucked in, ears pinned back and a chin implant. The work was perfect and I felt that I was on more equal footing with others who were born with better genetics.
Over the past 12 years the work has held up well and I have not had any regrets or second thoughts.
About a month ago I noticed that my face was a bit heavy. I called Dr. Romano and had a full consultation. I was exceptionally impressed with Dr. Romano’s detailed memory of my past surgery and Dr. Romano’s very conservative suggestions. I opted for lipo of my face and neck and had my chin implant hand carved by Dr. R.
Before the procedure Dr. R drilled down to brass tacks to figure out just want I wanted and then Dr. R presented various face changes with some very sophisticated photo editing software. It was interesting to see that some of my ideas did not end up looking so great in the edited photos. Dr. R’s attention to detail made a big difference. I am now 4 days post op and feeling wonderful. Having the work done at the surgery center of 450 Sutter was a good move.
Dr. Romano and his staff are first rate. Well worth the drive to get the best care possible.
An exceptionally talented surgeon! – I had been considering a breast augmentation for a while but was nervous about finding a Dr. who could achieve what I wanted. I didn't want to rush it until I felt I had found the right Dr. My husband and I did months of research online including looking up the websites for the American Association of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. We were very impressed with the quality of Dr. Romano's website, in particular his before and after photos which showed very natural-looking results. After our first meeting with him, I knew he was the one. He understood my concerns and what my vision was for the final result: natural-looking breasts that looked just like my own, only bigger, that were still proportional to my body type.
Dr. Romano patiently answered all of my questions and gave me the highest quality care. It has been almost 4 months since my procedure and I am very happy with the outcome. I would recommend him to anyone who wants only the best for themselves!
He's fantastic-- what can I say? – I have been a patient of Dr. Romano's for 10 years now and I would never go to anyone else. He gained my trust immediately because he was willing to listen to my concerns and give his expert opinion. Initially, he performed a mini facelift that was done on a Thursday and I was able to go home the next day. When I went back to work, I was thrilled to discover that NO ONE NOTICED!! No one looked at me and said, "You look different," or anything of that sort. And that's exactly the way I wanted it. He achieved a youthful effect for me which was subtle and superb-- I still looked like ME, only younger and fresher! (Even my Mom didn't notice!) Before the surgery, my biggest fear was that I'd have a different face-- I have seen other people who have had facial surgery and it is immediately apparent. And the worst part is that they lost their essential "look"-- I still have mine, only refined and sculpted. He's fantastic. And I just had some injections done on my lips, as they were looking flat-- voila!! They now look normal and I don't think anyone is going to notice. All they will see is me with a nice mouth-- none of the overdone injections I've seen - horrors! Bottom line is, I think he's terrific and recommend him without reservation.
The Best Plastic Surgeon in the U.S – I came to Dr.Romano after having had consultations for breast augmentation with several plastic surgeons in the Southern California area. None of the doctors that I had seen gave me the quality of care that Dr.Romano very willingly gave. He spent more than an hour with me on my first visit with him (whereas the other doctors spent 5-10 minutes) and answered all of my questions and did a very thorough examination of my breast anatomy. After nursing three children, and with a tubular breast deformity, I desired natural, normal looking breasts----a tall order for anyone to fill! But he did it, in December 2009---and now I have beautiful, gorgeous natural-looking breasts, that I absolutely love! Dr.Romano is the cream of the crop among plastic surgeons. He is kind, caring, and exceptionally skilled---and should I desire any other type of plastic surgery, Dr.Romano is most definitely going to be the man I see. I very highly recommend him as a plastic surgeon. You will be so incredibly pleased! THANK YOU DR.ROMANO!!!! You are amazing!!!
Best Surgeon EVER – I met Dr. Romano over 11 years ago and he is the BEST person and doctor I have ever known. He has done a number of procedures for me over the years and he is so CARING and is the most authentic and talented surgeon in town. I knew the first day I met him that I would only work with him. He is an expert and is so cautious and listens to what you NEED and WANT. My recovery for my breast augmentation was super easy and his work is PERFECT and so natural. He is an amazing doctor and I recommend to anyone as a trusted professional.
I live in Los Angeles and contacted Dr. Romano based on the before and after photos I saw on his website. I needed corrective surgery for a hump I had developed on my back, as well as elective surgery for the overly fatty neck I had developed over the last few years (a family trait, and not a good one).
From day 1 the experience was nothing but positive. He provided me with very detailed information about pre-op, the surgery, and post-op, including instructions on diet and supplement that would, and did, help speed the healing process. His staff was friendly and efficient. No question was left unanswered. Dr. Romano was friendly, gentle and enthusiastic as we discussed what was to be done and how. He contacted my doctor in LA, who was very impressed by the thoroughness of Dr. Romano's concern that everyone be informed and in agreement on the procedure to be done. The procedure itself, as well as the healing process, went exactly as he had explained it would.
And as far as the results of the surgery, I couldn't be happier. The procedure was in August, 2009, and I feel like a new man. I have no hesitation recommending Dr. Romano to anyone seeking plastic surgery.
Great Doctor, Great Results – I contacted Dr. Romano for male nipple reduction surgery. I hemmed and hawed about whether to have it done in the first place, but since it was something that really bothered me, I went ahead and decided to at least to consult with him.
I liked Dr. Romano from the very start. He put me at ease immediately, understood my concerns, and took the time with me to make me feel comfortable about what I could expect in terms of results, cost, recovery, etc. In short I decided right then to go ahead with it. But there was absolutely no pressure to do so. I just felt that I had come to the right doctor and that I could resolve a problem that was bothering me.
I was very impressed with how thorough Dr. Romano is with the pre-op instructions. He is concerned with a lot more than just the surgery itself. He has taken the time to give his patients detailed instructions on how to insure the best possible outcome with nutritional (diet and supplement) guidelines. He covers all the bases. You know he wants you to get the best result by healing properly.
His staff is superb. All the arrangements were handled professionally and accurately. I always felt taken care of – pampered actually.
The bottom line (finally!) – the results are outstanding. I now have regular looking nipples and there is no indication than anything was ever done. I now have to obsess about something else!
