Breast Surgery: Breast Augmentation

"Together all of this allows me to create results that are consistently very beautiful, quick to heal, and exceptionally natural. I use minimal incisions, especially in an area of such great importance to women."

A special message from CIAE Founder/Executive Director, Michele Phelan

I am pleased to present the "Best of the Best" announcement for a plastic surgeon for 2016.

In 2016, I surveyed hundreds of Estheticians on who they choose to refer their clients, friends and family to for cosmetic surgery, and the name that is most often mentioned is Dr. James Romano; a highly credentialed plastic surgeon, board certified in both General Surgery and Plastic Surgery. 

In addition to his full time academic teaching positions at Johns Hopkins Hospital and University of Southern California, he is currently on the plastic surgery clinical faculty at University of California, San Francisco. He specializes in high quality cosmetic surgery of the face and body. He is an extremely skilled surgeon, educator, and very caring human being that listens carefully to your needs, thoroughly answers all your questions, then guides you through the options. He will direct you through the full spectrum of different possibilities, but will also tell you when not to have surgery. 

His current office is a private practice in Nob Hill, San Francisco. 

Dr. Romano can be reached personally at or online

Take a tour through his website and learn about Dr. Romano and his procedures. 

View his many before and after photos, and feel free to contact Dr. Romano at the above email address.
