" Dr. Mele is amazing! I have had previous surgeries with Dr. Mele, eyelids, face lift, neck lift, and chin implant, the results are incredible! When I decided to get breast implants there was no question that Dr. Mele with his skill and artistry would do the surgery. Not only are the results from the first surgery far beyond what I could have imagined, my breasts are perfect! Exactly what I wanted! Dr. Mele and his staff were wonderful, they are courteous, attentive and thorough in the explanation and details needed to allow a patient to make the proper decisions. The confidence I received by having a phenomenal doctor has given me the confidence of a wonderful future! I highly recommend Dr. Mele!" ~Pamela, Plastic Surgery Patient
