Dr. Amalfi is one of the Quatela Center’s two body and breast surgeons. As a mother herself, Dr. Amalfi finds mommy makeovers to be one of the most rewarding procedures she can offer new mothers. Dr. Amalfi has experience caring for many different congenital breast differences and asymmetries, as well as patients who are unhappy with their outcomes from previous surgery and are looking for revision surgery. Dr. Amalfi’s education in fine arts complements the skills and attention to detail that translate into her cosmetic surgical outcomes. She recognizes that each patient’s goals and desires are unique and tailors her surgical plan and techniques to help them look and feel their best.

“Plastic surgery is as unique as the patients we care for. My patients each come with different goals and desires, different backgrounds and values, and a very personal idea of what it means for them to be healthy and confident. I like to tailor my approach and procedures to the individuality of my patient. By understanding who they are and what they are looking for, I can personalize my surgical plan and technique to meet their needs and provide them with a result that makes them feel confident. There is nothing more fulfilling than working with my patients on their surgical journey and watching the physical and emotional transformation throughout their experience.”
