I previously had an augmentation by another doctor in NYC (remain nameless) and was very unhappy. The implants were much bigger than I asked for and I was in tremendous pain.
Two years later, I was lucky enough to find Dr. Morello - he is the most talented surgeon I ever met! When we first met, he made me feel at ease. He listened to what my expectations were, my fear from my bad experience, and he answered all of my questions thoroughly and honestly. He even advised me to wait on the tummy tuck that I had wanted since it would be more costly after I had kids. Another doctor was pushing me to get it done right away. Dr. Morello cares about his patients and does not try to sell you something you do not need.
I told Dr. Morello that I wanted to be a "C" cup. I wanted to look professional, yet feminine. We agreed on 275 cc implants. He told me that he could virtually guarantee I would not be in pain! I was skeptical since we were doing sub-muscular implants and my first augmentation procedure with another plastic surgeon was the worst pain I ever experienced. But Dr. Morello was true to his word: I felt no pain at all!
The day of the surgery (6:45 am), I arrived at his surgical center and was taken to the back where I was examined by the nurse and given my gown to change in. I was then brought to Dr. Morello's office where he also examined me, marked my breasts, and went over the procedure with me once again. We then walked to the surgical area (there are 3 operating rooms) where I was placed in a bed, given magazines, and the curtains were closed. A few minutes later, the anesthesiolgist (an actual MD) introduced himself to me, made some small chat to make me comfortable, and then started an IV. I was then wheeled into the OR where Dr. Morello, the two nurses, and the anesthesiolgist met me.
After the surgery, I woke up with Dr. Morello standing to my right, and the nurse and anesthesiologist standing to my left. They all told me the surgery went great and to rest a little bit. A fell asleep for about an hour before I was ready to go home. The nurse gave me very specific instructions and wheeled me to the car my friend was driving me home in.
When I got home, I felt so wonderful. Dr. Morello does not bandage you up - instead you have strip bandage over the bare breasts to cushion them. I found this more comfortable and less restrictive. In fact, for some reason, I healed faster than the first time I got the augmentation done with that other doctor.
That evening, Dr. Morello called me to check up on me. He even called me the next day. I did not feel one ounce of pain and my breasts were just the perfect size and shape.
I am so happy I found Dr. Morello. I do not think any other surgeon could have given me these great results. I kid you not when I say that my breasts feel very natural. They move like my natural breasts and they are VERY soft. My boyfriend dated a girl who had breast implants and he said they were too firm and always sticking up. He is amazed at how mine feel - you would never know they were fake.
I would highly recommend Dr. Morello to anyone who wants the best results for their money (or even better).
