‘Real Housewife’ Gets Real-Looking Implants From Dr. Fiorillo
After a worldwide search, Melissa Gorga, one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, chose double Board Certified specialist Dr. Michael Fiorillo to replace her existing breast implants. Ms. Gorga is just one of the many out-of-state patients who come to see us.
She first had implants in her early 20s, right before giving birth to daughter Antonia. Thirteen years and two more children later, Ms. Gorga is having her older implants switched out for natural looking, Gummy Bear breast implants here in our New York clinic. Several other cast members, including currently-incarcerated Teresa Giudice, have also underwent breast implant surgery or another cosmetic procedure.
Ms. Gorga, who released her first iTunes single in 2011, lives in Montville, New Jersey with her family.
Why Choose Gummy Bears?
About three-fourths of our patients come in for cosmetic reasons, and the other fourth are here for a reconstructive procedure, usually following breast cancer. They come because Gummy Bears are the most appropriate implants for both these situations.
Breast implant customer satisfaction has always been fairly high, but Gummy Bear satisfaction ratings are through the roof, as high as 90 percent according to some surveys. So, much of our cosmetic work is repalcement work. Many times, the patient simply has older implants that need to be replaced because of the increased leak risk. But many other times, the patient was not satisfied with the previous implant, and comes to see Dr. Fiorillo to get the look she dreamed about.
Safety is a prominent concern for many reconstructive patients, because after battling a serious illness and winning, the last thing these women want is another life-or-death health struggle. Because Gummy Bear breast implants are new to the United States (though overseas women have had them since the 1990s), there are no long-term American studies attesting to their safety. But one prominent research group concluded that Gummy Bears are “less likely to break or leak into the body.”
Why Choose Dr. Fiorillo?
Dr. Fiorillo has been in practice since 1998, and over the past several years, he has contributed to many television programs, including Good Morning America, True Life, CBS News, and The Doctors, just to name a few.
He is a sought-after guest and speaker because of his vast experience and his affable manner, and those are the qualities that are most sought-after in a plastic surgeon as well.
