Breast Augmentation from a Boston Plastic Surgeon

When you are considering breast enlargement, you know that you have many options to choose from. Dr. Tantillo offers the extra care and attention you need through procedures that are personalized, up-to-date, and adaptable, creating results that look natural for your body.

He offers both saline and silicone gel breast implants, in a variety of sizes. For patients who are considering breast augmentation in Boston after they have had children or achieved significant weight loss, he will implement customized techniques to address your unique concerns in ways a generalized approach to surgery cannot.

In addition to breast enlargement, Dr. Tantillo offers a number of options to enhance your breasts by:

  • Re-positioning breasts that sag or point downward
  • Giving a more proportional and even form to breasts that are not the same size
  • Restoring volume and lifting breasts in one procedure
  • Reducing the size of breasts that are uncomfortably large
  • Sculpting a firmer and flatter look to reduce “male breasts”

Advanced Options for Body Contouring

You deserve to trust your body contouring needs to someone who has the aesthetic perception and precise technique to sculpt results that you can enjoy in the long term. Dr. Tantillo has developed a range of Boston cosmetic surgery procedures to tighten and sculpt unflattering body areas.

Boston liposuction is an extremely popular option for women and men who are having trouble with stubborn excess pockets of fat in areas such as the thighs, hips, back, and arms. Dr. Tantillo also performs many abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedures to tighten the abdominal wall and remove excess skin and fat. In addition to these general body shaping options, he provides post-bariatric plastic surgery options and offers combination surgeries - often known as “mommy makeovers” - designed for women who want to restore their shape after childbearing.

Dr. Tantillo: A Skilled Facial Rejuvenation Surgeon

Your Boston facial cosmetic surgery consultation should be comfortable, confidential, and focused on your desires. Dr. Tantillo knows that a friendly, personable attitude is important to help make sure that patients approach their options openly and feel confident about their choices. When you meet with him, he will listen to your goals and explain your options in ways that make sense, without trying to “sell you” on a procedure that is not best for your needs.

Dr. Tantillo offers a variety of facial enhancement options to help you present a confident, vibrant look:

  • Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) to create better balance and facial harmony
  • Facelift to correct sagging, wrinkled skin and tissue layers on the mid to lower face
  • Eyelid surgery to sculpt and tighten excess upper or lower lid tissue
  • Neck lift to tighten loose skin below the chin and smooth out lines and wrinkles

Some Boston plastic surgery patients prefer to enhance their appearance through cost-effective nonsurgical procedures. Dr. Tantillo can correct wrinkles and hollowed-looking skin through noninvasive treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic and a selection of effective dermal fillers.
