Patient Testimonials

Dr. Mele and his staff are fantastic. It was my first time having any type of plastic surgery and I was initially a bit apprehensive. I had a complete face lift and could not be happier with the results. Dr. Mele is a great surgeon with great after care. His staff is kind and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Dr. Mele. -AB
Where do I begin? Dr. Mele has been my surgeon for 12 years & I keep going back to him because he is simply the best! I've also sent friends & family members to him & the results speak for themselves. Not only is Dr. Mele one of the finest plastic surgeons around, he also has a bedside manner that you just won't find today. Dr. Mele takes time to listen, explain & let you ask questions until you are satisfied 100%. He is one of the most ethical Dr's as well, and will be honest with you (some people just want the answer they want to hear) he manages to do this with tact, decorum & class, one will not be disappointed with Dr. Mele, he is simply the best around! I was sent to him by a dermatologist who didn't want to touch my face (as I was working as a professional model at the time) Dr. Mele removed a mole without a trace of a scar & I've been hooked ever since. If you want the best, Dr. Mele is the ticket!! -AL
