Dr. Lalla changed my life! After three pregnancies in six years, my abdominal muscles had separated from their wall and I had an umbilical hernia, making me look perpetually 4-5 months pregnant. Although my breasts were the same 34c size, they hung about half a foot too low from where they'd been pre-baby. Dr. Lalla to the rescue! He explained I did not need a breast lift - a complicated expensive surgery (about which I'd initially been thinking) - and that simple breast implants would do the trick, an idea I'd never even considered because I was content with my size. From the beginning to the end, Dr. Lalla was the consummate professional. I even left it up to Dr. Lalla to decide during the surgery on the size of the breast implants because I was unsure which of two sizes would be right and didn't want to look "too big.". Now, 5 months later, I can honestly say I am THRILLED with my "new" body! The implants were just the right size and my breasts look as "perky" as ever. My belly is flat again and for the first time, I feel "sexy" and "noticed." I can't help but stare at my body in the mirror every time I pass! Not only is Dr. Lalla a skilled surgeon, but he also has amazing "bedside manner," explaining what to expect each step of the way, helping with decisions so my new look would be the right one for ME (not just the biggest) and following up after the surgery to ensure I was as comfortable as possible. Dr. Lalla's staff, too, is wonderful, particularly nurse practitioner Gina Lalla, who was as responsive as could be. Unlike many other medical professionals by whom I've been treated, the Lallas genuinely care. Medical competence is a given, but their specialized attention distinguishes them like no other!
From the moment I first met Dr. Lalla at one of the hospital support group meetings I decided to make a personal consultation to discuss with him my need for his expertise. During the exam Dr. Lalla has a sincere ease about him that goes beyond his medical knowledge he cares for you as a person. He will discuss the pros and cons of the procedures and then gives you his opinion but ultimately it is your decision. I have found both Dr. Lalla and his wife Gina to be very knowledgeable in all aspects of the journey both caring and devoted as well. I felt my care was paramount to them and their door was always open to me whether I had an appointment of not...If you have any concern they are there.
The night after I was released from the hospital....about 9:00pm the phone rang and it was Dr. Lalla.....calling me just to see if I was ok and if I needed anything.....Wow..I couldn't believe that a Dr. would be that caring to check on me after leaving the hospital.......The experience from my first surgery from beginning to end went so well......I had a second surgery with Dr. Lalla and was just as satisfied as the first one.......Just like Dr. Lalla travels all over the world to help unfortunate people in need of his talents.....people who are interested in plastic surgery should travel from all over the world to see Dr. Lalla.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer a year ago and have never been so scared!!! I was told by my breast surgeon that I would need a bilateral mastectomy and she recommended Dr. Lalla do the breast reconstruction. When I went to see Dr Lalla for my first office visit I was shaking, unsure of my future and how I would look. Right away I felt at ease with Dr Lalla and his staff and knew that this is the surgeon I wanted to operate on me!! Throughout the reconstructive process Dr Lalla and his nurse practitioner were always available to me, to answer questions or just to talk. I am now finished with my reconstruction and my breasts look better than they did before!!! I can wear low cut shirts and I have beautiful cleavage!!
Dr. Lalla is a fantastic surgeon! I recently had a breast augmentation with silicone implants. I have always been an A cup , which looked small for my body type. Dr. Lalla and I discussed the best size implants for me and we both decided on a medium C cup. I love them and am not embarrassed to wear tight shirts anymore! My breasts look so natural. I can now fill out my cloths the way I always wanted to. Thank you Dr. Lalla, I am sending my mother to you for a breast lift..
