About 3 and a half years ago Dr. Russo performed liposuction under my chin and neck which he assured me would pull up the sagging skin on my neck. What I was left with were deep vertical pleats under my chin and down the length of my throat. I looked a good 10 years older than I did before the procedure. Also I suffered from pain under my chin that never went away.
When I went to my last post-op visit, I told Dr. Russo that I was very unhappy with the result. He seemed shocked. He seemed genuinely perplexed and told me that he thought my skin would "snap back". Then he examined me and said, "It's just a little skin" and that the only way to correct it would be with a neck lift. Then he said "You're done" and walked out. I was dumbfounded by his response.
To make a long story short, I recently had a neck lift with which I am very happy. The doctor told me that the person who performed my liposuction "took out too much fat" ... "really tore up my platysma"..."did a very rough lipo." It took her 3.5 hours to do the muscle repair.

Dr Russo gave me hideous scars that were bulging, ugly and much longer that I was told they would be. I ended up traveling half way across the country to get scar revisons done. My new surgeon did a great job. I would NEVER go back to that dingy depressing office and deal with that abusive staff and unskilled Dr. EVER again.

I do not recommend this doctor. I went here for a consultation, which cost me $100. I am considering a face lift and wanted to see 4-5 surgeons and make an informed decision. This was the first doctor I went to and he told me that fat injections would be the equivalent of a face lift. It came with a hefty price tag as well. They also sent me home with brochures pushing botox and restolin. Since then I've had consults with several other doctors and they all told me unanimously you CANNOT get the same results with fat injections and temporary botox treatments.

Based on what the others doctors have told me I find Dr Russo's suggestions questionable.

Dr, Joseph A. Russo, is the best artist in plastic surgery techniques. He is a fine, down to earth and conservative plastic surgeon that does superb work. I am a living example of his artistry for the past 15 years and I trust his decisions explicitly. Rina E. Zarba

Dr J Russo has got to be one of the most dishonest people I have ever met. At the consultation he tells you what you want to hear then takes your money(12,000) and does what he wants to do.When I confronted him about what we verbally agreed upon for one of the procedures, he admitted he had no intensions of doing it they way we discussed.So I asked for a partial refund and he kept giving me the runaround and hiding.He also whould not give up my medical files which is illegal.I still do not have them and it has been six weeks.So here we go down the legal route dealing with this Dr. Not to mention some of his staff are a real nightmare. One in particular you dont meet until AFTER you pay the non-refundable deposit. A mean person who thinks she is the Dr. My first post-op I got berated and barked at for feeling pain after six days!Sorry but two major operations will do that to you! They also try to blame you when thing go wrong.The worst experience of my life!

After an extensive amount of research I decided to have my surgery with Dr. Russo and I could not be happier. Everyone had told me if you want great breasts go see Dr. Russo in Newton Ma. So my friend and I set up a consult (we wanted to have our breasts done together). So we arrived and the staff was great very friendly and personable. We only waited about 5 minutes for the Dr. and when he came in he did the both of us together it was so comfortable he explained everything with us we were in there for about an hour he listened to everything we had said and is very layed back, there was not even one point that I felt self conscious. We both booked for a month out to have it done on the same day together. So the day of surgery it went so fast and smooth I decided to go with silicone implants I wanted a very natural look. The surgery itself only took about 2 hours and when I woke up I was in absolutely NO pain at all. The week after I was in very mild discomfort but Dr. Russo gave me meds to make sure I remained as comfortable as possible. One week out I went in for my big REVEAL..The results were AMAZING..I was so happy they were perfect a little high up but after the massage he tought me they came down perfectly. All I can say is that my friend and I are so happy we reccomend him to everyone we see. They are so natural and perfect looking I could not be happier. If you are considering bigger breasts you need to see this man..
