After 16 years of wanted breast augmentation, I finally had the finances to go for it. I researched doctors for months before even calling to make my first consultation appointment. The reviews all pointed me in one direction: Dr. Racanelli!
My initial experience with his staff was pleasurable. They are kind and accommodating, scheduling an appointment within a few weeks and letting me know what to expect at my first visit. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by a sweet receptionist who worked with me whenever I called the office (Priscilla). The office itself was clean and nicely decorated, very welcoming. In addition, after completing my paperwork, I waited less than ten minutes to see Dr. Racanelli.
I immediately felt at ease with Dr. Racanelli. He has a way about him that makes you feel comfortable, safe, and reassured about the whole process. In addition, he is honest and open with you about the possible outcome. He wasn't shy about stating his opinion regarding sizing for me, a conversation that we had multiple times prior to my surgery.
I had a few underlying medical issues which were concerns of mine. Dr. Racanelli took his time and got to know everything he could about my health. He refused to move forward unless I had medical clearance from multiple other doctors managing my health. Once he was sure it was safe to proceed, we scheduled surgery and moved forward.
The day of the surgery, he was very calming during our pre-op meeting, putting me at ease. Post surgery, he was prompt to reach out for my boyfriend and spent some time on the phone with him letting him know how I was and how the surgery went. Despite some pain, Dr. Racanelli was very gentle during the first post-op check up a few days later when he removed the initial bandages. He was just as gentle when removing the stitches a week later. Every follow up appointment was just as pleasant as the first visit. In addition, any time I had a question, Dr. Racanelli or Priscilla would quickly get back to me with an answer. I visited both the Morristown and Newark offices during this time. Both locations are clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and have ample parking.
I cannot overstate how happy I am with the results of my surgery. Dr. Racanelli knew what I wanted to look like (and what I didn't want to look like), and he used his discretion to give me exactly what I was seeking. He ultimately picked the perfect size for me!! My implants are completely and totally natural looking with very minimal scarring. You wouldn't believe how many wonderful compliments I get from friends and family, some of whom were initially against the surgery. Dr. Racanelli is friendly, knowledgeable, and talented!! In my eyes, there is no other option for plastic surgery!!!!
