James Romanelli MD, FACS
About the Practice
Plastic surgery isnt about the procedures, its about you. Thats why my first priority is to listen...to uncover and understand your hopes and needs. As a result, I'm able to shape the procedure to fit your ideals. My goal is to bring technical skill, artistic sensibility and experience together for you-so that when you look in the mirror, you cant help but smile at the image you see. Plastic surgery can make all the difference--not only in how you look--but also in how you feel.
