So let’s start with a back story. I’ve had two kids. My entire life I’ve been bigger and then had children. In 2018, I had gastric bypass. My highest weight was 275lbs and I’m 5’4”. I lost about 95lbs and kept the weight off. When I’d look in the mirror, all I’d see is me at nearly 300 lbs. I had loose skin and fat on my belly and my breasts were something to be desired. In 2021 I decided to do some research and find a plastic surgeon. I found Dr Amalfi at the Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery. I followed her instagram for a bit and looked around at all the doctors in the area and wasn’t impressed. I called and spoke to Melissa who told me all about mommy makeovers and explained how much everything would cost. I set up a consultation with Dr Amalfi in November and absolutely adored her from the first moment I met her. She made me feel so comfortable and assured me she would do everything to make me comfortable in my own skin. My mommy makeover surgery was in March of 2022, I had a breast lift with small reduction, muscle repair and lipo to the back and oh my Gosh I cannot tell you how amazing I feel!!! I have this amazing shape to my backside I’ve never had before and I just can’t stop checking myself out when I walk by a window!!! Since surgery I’ve lost about 10 lbs and half of that was loose skin that was removed. I finally feel amazing in my own skin. I am so grateful to Dr Amalfi and her whole staff who made my experience an absolute pleasure. There aren’t enough words for how happy I am to finally feel good about my reflection.

I meant to post this review much sooner, but several years ago now, I went to the Quatela Center for a revision rhinoseptoplasty after a general plastic surgeon in the area botched my first procedure. I cannot say enough positive things about my experience before, during, and after my surgery with Dr. Quatela. You will not find a more skilled, understanding, or reliable facial plastic surgeon than him in Rochester, and I would say the whole of NY. Because of his excellent work, people notice my entire face first instead of just my nose. I am truly grateful to Dr. Quatela and his team. If you are considering any form of facial plastic surgery, look no further than the Quatela Center.

Dr. Koenig made me feel comfortable right from the first meeting. He listened to what I was looking to do and made those hopes a reality. I am loving my results and would highly recommend Dr. Koenig to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon.

Thank you for your review!

I couldn’t be happier with my decision to go forward with Dr. Amalfi for my procedure (Diastasis repair, tummy tuck and lipo). After having three children, my abdominal muscles were stretched and never closed. I still looked 7 months pregnant 2.5 years after my last baby. I tried exercise, diastasis repair apps, physical therapy- nothing worked. Within the first few minutes of meeting Dr. Amalfi, I knew that she needed to be my surgeon. She listened to my goals and concerns, and made me feel so comfortable. I scheduled my surgery that same day feeling confident and excited that I was finally going to do this for myself, and that I had found a surgeon that I trusted. Not only is she amazing, but the rest of the staff as well. They make you feel welcome, always enter the room with a smile, and make sure all of your questions are answered. I am about three weeks post-op right now and I feel amazing! Every time I think about my journey I am in tears. Dr. Amalfi is an amazing surgeon who I would recommend to anyone. She was wonderful every step of the way, in every way that I needed her to be. My stomach looks AWESOME. I am fitting into tops and dresses I NEVER thought I would ever be able to wear again! Us moms deserve to feel our best, and that is the gift that Dr. Amalfi has given to me. I feel like ME again, and for that I am forever grateful.

Amazing, friendly helpful staff. Dr Amalfi was totally amazing. I researched several plastic surgeons before choosing The Quatella Center and I'm so glad I did. I couldn't be more happy with the results. Thank you for everything and your kind patience with all my questions. Also a "high 5" to Melissa for quickly answering my emails. Martha

Dr. Lee and the staff at Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery are amazing! From the initial consultation, through the day of surgery and all of the follow up appointments, everyone has been caring and extremely professional. I was referred by a close friend and couldn’t be happier with the whole experience!

Dr. Koenig is an AMAZING doctor. I was so comfortable around him and all his staff. He helped me decide what size CC I should have after numerous appointments of trying to get the right size. Day of surgery I was very nervous once I was brought back for IV and get ready for pre op the nurse Abbie made me feel so comfortable and my nerves were quickly settled. I met with dr and all staff before entering the OR which I thought was great. All my questions were answered and so far my recovery has gone well (I’m on week 3). I can not thank the dr and staff enough for all the support they all gave me! I will recommend him to everyone I know that is looking to get cosmetic surgery done. I plan on returning to him for more work!
