Five Stars

I could not be more pleased with the 5 surgeries I have had Dr Gallico perform. All have been outstanding. He is an artist and a gifted surgeon. He has performed 3 on m wife and she is beautiful and 3 on friends I recommended, all were life changing from a 30 year old female friend, a beautiful tummy tuck, to a 60 year old friend with a face and chin life. He is the best and recommended to me by Dr. John Constable, Professor of Plastic Surgery and Harvard who prior to Dr. Gallico was the best in the country. His art is as outstanding as his surgery I will, and have recommended him in an instant

Horrible experience

He put implants in face that didn't fit properly and looked very unnatural - people would tell me I had something on the side of my face and helpfully try to flick it off but it was the tail of the implant sticking out from the side of my face. I had the implants removed which left scarring beneath the skin resulting in unnatural looking contours - it's ruined my looks - his surgery is the worst experience of my life.

crooked nose

Gallico did my rhinoplasty 3 years ago. My nose was large and had a bump on the bridge. Although those 2 issues were fixed, I was left with a VERY crooked nose. So much so, that the left side of my nose is completely caved in, and I cannot breath out of my left nostril. I am incredibly disappointed. Everyone said he was the guy to go to. I don't know what happened. I have not contacted him about a revision because I no longer trust him.

Breast Augmentation

I wish I had read these reviews before I went to him. I spent almost 10K for Breast Augmentation for nothing. At consultation I felt Soo happy that this was the doctor for me. We agreed in a perfect size and I was ready to go. However after the procedure I found that he did not go with out decided size, but in fact took it upon himself to go smaller that what we decided. His reasoning was "I thought the size we decided was too big for you and that this size would be better" Really? So you didn't think to tell me this before I went under and you did the procedure. Keep in mind out final consultation was right before the procedure was done. Just horrible. Needless to say, the healing process was soo painful I did not want to go through any of that again. So I am left with a wasted 10k boob job that I could've acheived with a simple push up bra. Be careful with this guy smh!
