Dr. James Romanelli

As a young student, Dr. Romanelli fell in love with sculpture, using his hands to create objects of beauty and expression. As he grew up, he wanted to find a way to combine his love of sculpture with his desire to improve how people feel, and after graduating with honors from the University of Notre Dame, Dr. Romanelli entered medical school at the State University of New York at Downstate. While there, he excelled in general medicine and intricate surgical techniques. After earning his Doctor of Medicine degree, Dr. Romanelli trained in general surgery at Staten Island University Hospital, working his way up to chief resident, and then passed the exams necessary to become board certified in surgery.

After his residency, Dr. Romanelli and his family moved to Houston, Texas, where he trained in plastic surgery at Baylor College of Medicine under the guidance of the two inventors of the modern breast implant, Drs. Gerow and Cronin. Dr. Romanelli’s experience at Baylor included silicone and saline breast implant surgeries, as well as breast reconstruction using breast implants, and tummy tuck surgery.

Dr. Romanelli returned to Long Island in 1990, quickly becoming recognized as an exceptionally poised and skilled plastic surgeon among the New York surgical community. “There’s an art and science to every plastic surgery procedure,” says Dr. Romanelli. “A surgeon has to have the technical skill, but he or she also needs to be able to perform careful analysis and make great decisions. At every consultation, I discuss with my Long Island breast augmentation patients how I use my training to give them great results.”

About New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. James N. Romanelli

Many of Dr. Romanelli’s patients seek him out for breast enlargement, breast lift, or a combined breast procedure, since he has had almost 20 years of experience with breast enhancement procedures. In fact, Dr. Romanelli’s experience with silicone implants pre-dates the 1992 moratorium, and he has participated in three FDA-approved silicone gel implant studies, making him highly qualified to perform surgery using the new generation of re-approved silicone breast implants for Long Island breast enlargement patients.

Dr. Romanelli is committed to safe surgical results, taking the time to keep up with the latest techniques and technologies. “The guiding principle in all of medicine is ‘First, do no harm,'” says Dr. Romanelli. “I want to improve the lives of my patients, and I want to do so in the safest and most comfortable environment possible. By focusing on excellent results, I’m able to perform a beautiful breast augmentation using techniques that help to speed recovery.”

About the Long Island Plastic Surgery Practice

Dr. Romanelli trained in several of the nation’s most prestigious hospitals before returning to Long Island to offer cosmetic surgery services to his New York patients. Women who seek breast augmentation at his Long Island surgical office count on his extensive experience and fine-tuned judgment to deliver them a safe and stunning result.

Over the years, Dr. Romanelli has been fortunate to attract a team of professionals to assist him with breast enlargements, breast reductions, breast lifts, and breast reconstruction. His patients are often surprised by the high level of care they receive from the team of board-certified anesthesiologists, Dr. Romanelli’s nurse practitioner, and the nursing staff. “Almost every day patients confide in me that they’re really impressed by the quality of care provided by the staff members, all the way through the process,” says Dr. Romanelli.

Dr. Romanelli and his practice staff constantly evaluate new breast implants, new surgical techniques, and new procedures. Of particular interest to Dr. Romanelli are innovations that decrease recovery time and increase patient comfort. The goal is to offer each patient the best results possible.

Romanelli Cosmetic Surgery has its office in Huntington, New York, a short car ride from Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and towns on Long Island. New York City residents also can reach the office via the Long Island Railroad. The surgical office is fully accredited, and even equipped to give patients the option of an overnight stay under the care of one of our private duty nurses.

Dr. Romanelli offers a full range of surgical enhancements in addition to breast surgery, including tummy tuck and liposuction. “I believe that in beauty, there is happiness. When my team and I are able to help a woman look and feel so much better, the payoff for me is the wide smile on her face after surgery,” says Dr. Romanelli.
