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.”Ashley Amalfi, M.D.
Passionate about education and mentorship, Dr. Amalfi has founded local chapters for Women in Plastic Surgery (WIPS), Association for Women Surgeons (AWS), and UR Women in Surgery. She has been recognized for these efforts on multiple levels, receiving a mentorship award from the URMC Surgical Interest Group, a Mentorship Award from the URMC Plastic Surgery Residency, and the Women of Excellence Award from the Italian American Community Center.
“Doctor Amalfi is hands down the best! She was very professional every step of the way. She made me feel so comfortable throughout the entire process. She listened to me and offered suggestions that fit my needs. I have now scheduled a second procedure with her because I have so much trust in her and her talent. I continue to recommend her to friends and family. We are truly lucky to have her in Rochester, New York.”
“Dr. Amalfi helped me say NO to breast cancer! After discovering I carry a related gene, I began researching options and consulting with a team of specialists; Dr. Amalfi being the plastic surgeon. Our journey together started over two years ago and as I write this now, I am proud not only of the results/appearance but also of my decision to undergo the process. There are several steps and multiple surgeries; it takes time to heal, recover and prepare yourself for the next stage. Dr. Amalfi helped me throughout with various decisions and explained what my body was experiencing. I trusted her expertise and love the natural appearance of my new breasts. I have no regrets! I'm grateful for the work she did to give me this sense of strength and peace. I dare say my chest looks and feels better than before. I highly recommend Dr. Amalfi as a plastic surgeon.”
“I cannot recommend Dr. Amalfi more highly. She is warm, talented, and a true artist in her surgery as well as actual artwork. I always felt like I was in the best hands for my iliac liposuction. The entire staff and entire experience at Quatela Center was first class and very personal. I felt everyone cared about me. The Surgical Center was sterile and I felt very comfortable having surgery there during the pandemic.”
“I’m from Rochester, NY and had liposuction of the abdomen, ilium, inner and outer thighs, and axillary performed. I could not possibly be happier with Dr. Amalfi’s work. Everything you’ve heard is true - she is absolutely an artist. She really had her work cut out for her but she sculpted me in a way nobody else could have.. I am so grateful to her!”
“Choosing a doctor is something I do not take lightly, let alone a plastic surgeon. After weeks of research, I chose Dr. Ashley Amalfi and I could not be happier with my decision. She walked in the room for the first time, was so warm and welcoming that I genuinely felt like we had been friends for years. This was huge in my first impression of her as she was someone I was trusting my physical appearance to! She talked me though all my questions and fears leaving me feeling comfortable and confident with my decision. One year ago, I had a breast reduction and am kicking myself that I didn’t find her sooner to have it done! I suffered from horrible neck, back and shoulder pain for years, where most nights I cried it hurt so badly. I can honestly say from day 1 post-op, I have felt like a complete weight has been lifted off of me and I haven’t had a bit of that pain anymore. I have her to thank for that! Dr. Amalfi is a Godsend and I would absolutely recommend her to anyone!”
“She is so compassionate and caring. She did an amazing job and offered countless support and follow ups.”
“I had an excellent experience with Dr. Amalfi. She is very kind, very thorough, professional & I am VERY IMPRESSED with the results just a few days after gynecomastia surgery. Practice itself is extremely clean & comfortable. Communication between office staff, doctors, nurses & patients is above & beyond! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for cosmetic surgery in the Rochester, NY area. KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT WORK!!”
“Dr. Amalfi is a goddess-send! Her sincere, wise, and thoughtful approach immediately put me at ease. Breast augmentation had long been on my horizon after a combined 5.5 years of nursing little ones. Dr. Amalfi listened intently to my desire for a natural, modest silhouette; her guidance along the journey was always comforting and encouraging. At only 2 weeks post-operation, I am very pleased with my results, and healing process. The team at Quatela is very special, and Dr. Amalfi is a true asset to the plastic surgery community. I am grateful for her expertise and care.”
“Dr Amalfi exceeded my expectations. From the first time meeting her at my consultation (breast augmentation/scar revision/lipo) I felt so comfortable. She understood where I was coming from and where I wanted to be with my procedures. She delivered 100% with everything she recommended and everything I wanted. I went from being extremely self conscious of my chest to now feeling confident. I highly recommend Dr Amalfi and am so pleased and happy with my results.”
“I want to start off this review by saying how much I love and appreciate the work that Dr. Amalfi did on me! She is amazing ! I would trust her again with any procedure, she answered all my questions without hesitation. I had a mommy makeover 3 weeks ago and already my body looks great. The staff was polite and professional! I honestly don’t have one complaint about my experience at the Quatela center. I highly recommend Dr. Amalfi”
