I needed to have my entire nose restructured. I was very apprehensive about going to a location that was not “in” one of the major Boston hospitals. In the end, after many consults elsewhere and recommendations from top Boston MD’s, I decided to move ahead w Dr. DeRosa and have her do the procedure in her Newbury Street surgical center. The procedure went perfectly, I felt so at ease and the results are just perfection. She is beyond talented. I feel so lucky to have been her patient. I go to her office now too for all my facials- the best! More

Dr derosa fixed my broken nose from a terrible fall. Initially I was seen in the emergency room where the surgeon compromised other parts of my nose. When I said I noticed there were problems he took no responsibility. I went to dr derosa she knew exactly what I saw and repaired it. She has the kindest personality and her skills are nothing short of magical. She also accepts your phone calls and any. Concerns you may have. Very professional and one of the most compassionate doctors I ever met. But more importantly she is extremely skilled at what she does. I would never recommend a not good doctor. Trust me she is great! Also the staff and nurse are very helpful when I need questions answered I’m able to speak to dr derosa about valid concerns and or the nurse . The nurse is amazing very knowledgeable. She and dr deRosa communicate very well. It is all positive and professional as any surgeons office should be. More

I honestly couldn't have asked for a better experience. After searching for three months and seeing numerous other surgeons (including the last plastic surgeon who did my second rhinoplasty revision), I was convinced no one would take on my case and listen to my story the way I needed it to be heard, let alone agree for me to become their patient. I felt totally disheartened and lost! In comes the DeRosa Canter as my last and only hope. From the outset, Colleen (the admin) and Meg (who handles patient coordination) were incredibly friendly and welcoming on my first visit. Colleen in particular has been FANTASTIC about fielding multiple calls and questions from me before and post-op (thank you so much Colleen!). Meg is cheerful and explains the billing process very thoroughly, and always made me feel confident about my choice to work with the DeRosa Center. I was also able to get my preferred surgical date without incident, which meant a lot considering I am a stay-at-home mom with three kids under 9 years old! And what can I say about Dr. DeRosa - she is a DREAM. She is bubbly, attentive, smart, and such an incredible listener. She let me spend a half hour explaining my previous procedures, where I was unhappy with them, and how I wanted to move forward reconstructing my nose after my son had broken it during playtime over the summer. She MORE than met my expectations. She understood that this procedure was more than just fixing a broken nose, but giving to me the nose I had always wanted as a teenager, and I'm nearing 40 today. She showed me pictures of potential outcomes, and I was thrilled! I booked surgery that same day. The day of surgery I met Dr. DeRosa's husband, who also happens to be her anesthesiologist! He has a lovely calming presence that is especially essential right before surgery. It was a special twist to know that the practice was in essence “family run.” Post-op, the NP Nicole took off my cast and showed me my results, and I was stunned! My nose was perfectly straight again, without divots from being broken, and on top of that, was much smaller and looked SO appropriate for my face. I was THRILLED. I opted to also do some post-op Botox with Nicole right on the spot, which I must say was an added plus - she is a great listener and a very skilled technician. Botox isn’t something to play with, and she did a fantastic job. (Thanks Nicole! I can’t wait to come back!) Overall, I just can’t thank all of the DeRosa team enough for giving me my life back (really and truly). I've waited so long to see the face I've had in my mind’s eye become reality, and this group of people achieved it for me. I would recommend the DeRosa Center for ANYBODY, be it for a surgical procedure or even modest med spa tweaks. I love this group of people!!! From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much. More

I love coming for all my appointments, the staff is always friendly and nurse Nicole makes me feel like I’m her only client of the day. She takes her time explaining everything and prepping me. It’s such a clean and beautiful office, it’s like a mini vaca when I get to Derosa! More

I went to see Dr Derosa at the end of August for a rhinoplasty consult. I’ve ALWAYS hated my nose (large hump, bulbous tip, asymmetrical line in my tip and overall my nose was crooked and veered towards the right side of my face). She was the 5th doctor I had a consult with. When I left her office, I knew she was going to be my surgeon. She has the ability to make you feel 100% comfortable and knew exactly what I was looking for. I had my surgery at the end of September - I’m one month out from my surgery and couldn’t be happier. Her husband is also the anesthesiologist and comes from Mass Eye & Ear to her office to do the anesthesia for her patients. Recovery was a breeze! I experienced little to no pain- honestly it was more uncomfortable than painful (like a bad head cold). I encouraged some friends and even coworkers to book a consult with her! If you’re looking to get a rhinoplasty, I would highly recommend meeting with Dr Derosa. I’ve included a picture of the photo she took during my consult, a picture right after my cast was removed, and a side profile picture from a couple weeks after surgery. More

I had the most amazing experience with dr derosa for my rhinoplasty. She is the nicest, most caring doctor I have ever met! Everything was seamless, no issues and the surgery went great. My nose fits my face perfectly and I still look just like me! I am only a month out and love my results. I cannot recommend her enough! More

I am a female in my 20’s, and since I was 12 years old, I KNEW I wanted to change my nose. I currently live in Boston and met with an array of plastic surgeons in the area to discuss my goals. Dr.DeRosa and her staff are the best, and here is why: • Everyone is very professional. I have very high anxiety in general, and everyone in the office dealt with that in a professional way, especially when it came to changing dates due to Covid – 19. Sarah, once of the office managers, handled my anxiety and pestering in a very professional manner. • Dr.DeRosa always has a big smile on her face, has a lot of energy and is very welcoming. My family is far away from me in other states and countries, and that added a lot of anxiety during the operation. Everyone in the room handled things well and calmed me down as I was having a hard time dealing with how I felt ( when you enter the operation room, it gets REAL). I never had any kind of surgery before, I went into the room without experience, but with lots of support from the staff. • The anesthesiologist and the nurse working with me were awesome. • Dr.DeRosa is not after you money – I mentioned my interest in another procedure (in addition to Rhinoplasty), and she told me to hold off until my face is 100% healed to make that decision. • The clinic space itself is very clean and well put together. • The experience is private – so if you are worried about these things – don’t be. • Even though the cast is not off yet, I can see the new shape of my nose ( even though it is somewhat swollen), and it looks fabulous. Dr.DeRosa and I talked about my goals, and she identified several areas of improvement for my nose vs. just giving me a “once size fits most” recommendation. For those of you that want to know this, yes, Rhinoplasty is somewhat painful. Yes, there will be swelling and a couple of sleepless nights. Everyone is different, I saw MAJOR improvement on day four. Dr.DeRosa checks in on her patients regularly, and is open to phone calls/emails you may have during your recovery. She checked up on me a day after my surgery, then couple of days later I called the office with a question, I got a phone call back a couple hours later (once Dr.DeRosa was finished with a surgery), and all my questions got answered. Our check ins did not seem rushed – she took the time to ensure I felt good and got the information I need. Very thankful for my experience. 😊 More

Hi there, I had rhinoplasty done with Dr DeRosa a couple of years ago. I had a few minor breaks as a child as well as a major one in my early twenties. I was depressed and in a bad place for a few years. I saw a handful of surgeons and got a 3d print of the outcome. I booked a consultation with Dr DeRosa. The first thing I noticed was how direct and confident she was. Unlike any surgeon I had seen. Including high profile names in NYC. She took one look at the other print outs and shook her head. And gave me her version. A more realistic less aggressive and natural look. I am Male btw. I decided to go with her. I had major swelling due to my thick skin. I gave Dr DeRosa a bit of hard time. She stayed patient and confident. I ended up with the look I had dreamed of. And didn't even know or expect how amazing the outcome was. She was so nice to me and family. I have seen many Drs and she is second to none. If you are considering this go for it. And definitely consider Dr DeRosa she is a genuine kind person as well. Currently I'm attending school and very happy. Thank you Dr DeRosa you have changed my life and I will forever be grateful.🙂 More

Dr. DeRosa PERFORMED A FANTASTIC rhinoplasty on my nose! First off - my real name is Eddie (Edward)Pros - I wanted a nose job ASAP and she was the fastest doctor to get me under the knife. It only took a week & a half for me to get the procedure done. That's why I went with her.- she is extremely available at all times. Fast responsiveness. - She's an artist. I told her to do what looks best for my nose. I trusted her. She has good judgement, she's the professional, not me.- she her surgeries at mass eye and ear on huntington ave, which has a fully trained medical staff that takes care of you.- she's fairly priced, not the cheapest, however not too expensive. It cost me 8,500 USD- she follows up with free appointments to check up on you :)- she's very nice, pleasant, positive and confident doctor. If I have any more work that I want done.. I'll be going to her! :)cons- I was the last patient at mass eye and ear and I was rushed out of hospital so basically they could go home. Even though I was still in a lot of pain. Not Dr DeRosa's fault, people are people, they have lives outside of work.- She doesn't take health insurance. More

I am a mom to a 15 year old girl, who has always hated her nose. Although I found her to be beautiful just the way she was, she hated her nose and always talked about changing it. She dealt with mean kids at school and avoided pictures as much as possible. We first started looking into rhinoplasty when she was 14 years old. We found Dr DeRosa and made a call. Over the phone we were told that Dr. DeRosa would not consider surgery until my daughter was 15. We waited a year. She had her 15th birthday on a Sunday so we called to schedule the consult the very next day. Dr. DeRosa's office was so quick to get us in so we made the 3 hour trip south. The consultation was wonderful and Dr. DeRosa made us feel so comfortable. The amount of work needed for my daughters nose concerns to be fixed, was a lot! The total cost for us was going to be a little over $12,000 (this fee includes the hospital fees). My husband and I were very hesitant and considered other consultations but after revisiting the pros of Dr DeRosa, we decided to go with her. We are sooooo thankful that we made this decision. On the day of surgery my daughter was a little scared and tearful. Instead of just rushing her through the process, Dr. DeRosa spent time with her in pre-op reassuring her and comforting her. She was amazing! After the surgery she came out to speak with me and again was amazing. Her bedside manner is unlike any other. In my opinion she treated us like she would treat a good friend or a family member. We are only one day post op but the changes are already noticeable (even through the nose cast). I highly recommend Dr. DeRosa. She was worth the long car trips and I have no regrets about this decision. I am so thankful that we found her. More

My nose was always something that bothered me my whole life. It was too big for my face and had a large high bump in the middle of it. I was bullied in middle school and in high school because of having a larger than normal nose. I knew I always wanted to have it fixed but was scared of the procedure. One summer I accidentally hit my face off a door which caused my nose to look even worse! From the accident I got a deviated septum and needed to have that fixed so I figured while the dr was fixing my septum he could fix my hump on my nose. He told me he worked with a plastic surgeon named dr derosa and that she is someone I could talk to about having a rhinoplasty. I set up an appointment for a consultation to meet with her to discuss my case. She came in and talked with me about what I would like to have done, answered all of my questions I even brought in photos of what I would like my new nose to look like! I am now 9 months post op and couldn't be anymore happier! My new nose fits my face perfectly and is symmetrical with my face. She is truly an artist I'm so grateful that she was my surgeon! Oh and my recovery was great I was out shopping the very next day with very little swelling and only had slight bruising. I would highly recommend Dr Derosa! Xoxo Angelica More

Where do I even begin with all of the amazing things about Dr. Derosa? Let me start with my story. I am a 33 year old woman who had my first rhinoplasty in 2001 (15 years ago) to remove a large dorsal hump. This surgery removed the dorsal hump but I was left with a very prominent nose that was raised too high and was crooked. I hated my nose every single day. I would always find ways to turn my face so people couldn't see my profile and when driving would get anxiety every time a car was next to me. After 15 years I finally decided to look into a revision rhinoplasty. I had originally went back to my original doctor 12 years ago which I realized was a bad idea and never followed through with a second surgery. I went to other doctors who would not operate on me at all. I stumbled upon Dr. Derosa on google and spent hours on her website. I watched all of her videos and testimonials and knew I had to meet her! Her secretary Cassandra is absolutely amazing! She made my consultation appointment very quickly and was always knowledgeable in any question I had. Her friendly personality is the most wonderful addition to this office. The first time I met Dr. Derosa she came flying into the room with the biggest smile and happiest personality I have ever witnessed. She listened to all of my concerns and then looked in my nose and told me what she could do. She took before pictures and used a computer program to give me an idea of what she would be able to achieve. She spent one hour with me at my consultation when most doctors spend 5-10 minutes. Before I left I had all of the quotes and information that I would need to make my decision. I booked my surgery a week after my consultation. My surgery was on June 27th and everything went perfect. The hospital staff was amazing and I cannot say enough great things about the whole process. Dr. Derosa herself called me the next day to check on me and make sure I was doing well. I saw her a week later for the cast/stitches removal and she was just so comforting and gentle. I did not feel a thing and I had stitches in three places. I also got a chin implant and she had to take rib cartilage. If you are someone who is unhappy with their nose go see...no RUN to see Dr. Derosa. She is an expert in this area and she is extremely skilled in her craft. My results are INCREDIBLE and I am only 1 week post op right now and still have a lot of swelling. She fixed my deviated septum (that the first doctor created), brought my nose back down where it needed to be and widened my very thin nose. I have the most amazing profile that I have dreamed of for over 20 years!!! My surgery was 5.5 hours and was not an easy task. I also drove 1.5 hours to Boston just to have Dr. Derosa for my doctor because no one in my state could perform what she could. For the first time in my life I am confident and LOVE my nose! Family members didn't even know I had surgery because she takes a very natural approach so that you look like yourself which was very important to me. Feel free to ask the office to speak with me if you are considering this surgery. They set you up with past patients to help you with your decision and it really helped me during this process. Thank you Dr. Derosa for changing my life. I have no idea what the few negative reviews are about because you are a miracle worker! Yes, she is a little expensive, but you get what you pay for!!!! I did get a little discount because my insurance paid for the functional part of my surgery which was a plus! Regardless, she is worth every penny! Good luck to those of you who are considering rhinoplasty. :) More

This surgery removed the dorsal hump but I was left with a very prominent nose that was raised too high and was crooked. I hated my nose every single day. I would always find ways to turn my face so people couldn't see my profile and when driving would get anxiety every time a car was next to me. After 15 years I finally decided to look into a revision rhinoplasty. I had originally went back to my original doctor 12 years ago which I realized was a bad idea and never followed through with a second surgery. I went to other doctors who would not operate on me at all. I stumbled upon Dr. Derosa on google and spent hours on her website. I watched all of her videos and testimonials and knew I had to meet her! Her secretary Cassandra is absolutely amazing! She made my consultation appointment very quickly and was always knowledgeable in any question I had. Her friendly personality is the most wonderful addition to this office. The first time I met Dr. Derosa she came flying into the room with the biggest smile and happiest personality I have ever witnessed. She listened to all of my concerns and then looked in my nose and told me what she could do. She took before pictures and used a computer program to give me an idea of what she would be able to achieve. She spent one hour with me at my consultation when most doctors spend 5-10 minutes. Before I left I had all of the quotes and information that I would need to make my decision. I booked my surgery a week after my consultation. My surgery was on June 27th and everything went perfect. The hospital staff was amazing and I cannot say enough great things about the whole process. Dr. Derosa herself called me the next day to check on me and make sure I was doing well. I saw her a week later for the cast/stitches removal and she was just so comforting and gentle. I did not feel a thing and I had stitches in three places. I also got a chin implant and she had to take rib cartilage. If you are someone who is unhappy with their nose go see...no RUN to see Dr. Derosa. She is an expert in this area and she is extremely skilled in her craft. My results are INCREDIBLE and I am only 1 week post op right now and still have a lot of swelling. She fixed my deviated septum (that the first doctor created), brought my nose back down where it needed to be and widened my very thin nose. I have the most amazing profile that I have dreamed of for over 20 years!!! My surgery was 5.5 hours and was not an easy task. I also drove 1.5 hours to Boston just to have Dr. Derosa for my doctor because no one in my state could perform what she could. For the first time in my life I am confident and LOVE my nose! Family members didn't even know I had surgery because she takes a very natural approach so that you look like yourself which was very important to me. Feel free to ask the office to speak with me if you are considering this surgery. They set you up with past patients to help you with your decision and it really helped me during this process. Thank you Dr. Derosa for changing my life. I have no idea what the few negative reviews are about because you are a miracle worker! Yes, she is a little expensive, but you get what you pay for!!!! I did get a little discount because my insurance paid for the functional part of my surgery which was a plus! Regardless, she is worth every penny! Good luck to those of you who are considering rhinoplasty. :) More

My experience with Dr. DeRosa and her staff excellent.I have a chronic illness and have seen many doctors over the years,so I feel I am a good judge of quality care. That being said Dr. DeRosa is right at the top of my list.My crooked nose had bothered me for years and after much research I decided on her.Right from the beginning to the last followup appointment I was treated so well.She and her staff were attentive and gave me all the help and information I needed to make me feel comfortable.The surgery,recovery,and results were great,my nose looks fantastic! I highly recommend Dr. DeRosa and her wonderful staff. More

I was originally referred to Doc DeRosa after taking a slap shot to my nose during a floor hockey game - there was significant damage to my septum causing breathing issues, which it turned out, needed major reconstructive work. My only request was that I end up with the same nose I started with! Four years later, I've had people compliment my nose, and when I tell them it was reconstructed they are shocked. All credit to Doc DeRosa for her exceptional attention to detail, thorough planning and creative approach to the reconstruction. At each step of the process she made sure I thoroughly understood what to expect, why she recommended the approach, and took plenty of time to answer my questions and address my concerns on pros/cons of different actions. I was so pleased with the results and confident in Doc Derosa that when I considered some more cosmetic, age-related fixes, she was the only person I considered and trusted to consult with. If you want a surgeon who is going to really listen to you, take the time to understand your needs and concerns and will deliver as expected - I highly recommend Doc DeRosa. More

After my unfortunate experience with a general plastic surgeon that had tried to fix my broken nose, I knew I wanted to find a skilled surgeon that specialized in facial plastics. As I had been to Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary before, I started to ask several surgeons for recommendations on who to go to for a rhinoplasty revision. Time and time again, I was told that Dr. DeRosa was the best surgeon in Boston for the job, and she truly was. During my consultation, Dr. DeRosa spent more than an hour with me. She gave me her time and attention. This was truly astonishing, as I was used to physicians rushing in and out of examination rooms. I told her that my primary concern was that I was unable to breathe through my nose and that I wanted to fix it without drastically altering its appearance. Dr. DeRosa listened to me and told me that we could improve my breathing and fix my nose in a way that was very natural looking. That is exactly what she did! The morning of my operation, I was feeling anxious prior to surgery. The always bubbly Dr. DeRosa came out to see me in preop and instantly made me feel better. She again went over with me exactly what she was going to do. My surgery went perfectly. Dr. DeRosa had me come in the next day for a quick check in, and told me that if I had any issues or concerns at all, that I could contact her. She made herself extremely accessible. I saw her a week later to have my cast and stitches removed. As the stitches were removed, my eyes slightly watered because of a few small pinches. Other than that, I experienced no pain. I was so pleased to see my nose and was shocked that I already had a tremendous improvement in my breathing. Though there were small changes to my nose, I still looked like myself. Needless to say, I was (and still am) so happy to have had Dr. DeRosa as my surgeon. She is truly as exceptional of a surgeon as she is a person. More

Dr. DeRosa is an extraordinary surgeon. After several disappointing and worsening experiences with prior surgeons, Dr DeRosa gave me the ability to believe that things could change. She is not just a gifted surgeon, but she has the rare ability to connect with a patient on a personal level, which I believe promotes not only the healing of the body, but the whole person. I would highly recommend her. More

My experience five years ago with Dr. Jaimie DeRosa was beyond exceptional. She skillfully corrected two botched nose surgeries that I had by two other Boston-area, Harvard-trained, and "certified" surgeons who purportedly were expert in their field. It turned out that those two surgeons were not expert. The second one, in fact, after he performed a surgery that he then later admitted he should not have done, referred me to Dr. DeRosa, who adroitly fixed my problem. She was amazing. Because of the nature of the surgery, she had me visit with her several times post surgery so that she could examine me to ensure optimal healing. I would be so happy to talk with anyone about Dr. DeRosa and to share with him/her my wonderful experience with her. I would also be happy to talk with anyone about doing the right research about surgeons, so as to avoid the bad outcomes from the other two previous surgeons that I had who damaged my nose. More

My experience with Dr. Derosa was extremely positive, and I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. After an extensive search for the right surgeon, I chose to go forward with Dr. Derosa. A friend of mine had recently undergone a rhinoplasty with Dr. Derosa that fit the exact description of what I wanted for myself. I wanted something natural-looking that could also improve my breathing. I suffered a minor fracture at a young age and felt as though my nose never looked the same. I also experienced chronic sinus infections for a number of years. From my first appointment, Dr. Derosa made me feel comfortable and confident that I would experience great results. She carried herself with a wonderful combination of professionalism and affection. After a smooth recovery with no complications, I can honestly say I look back at my experience with Dr. Derosa with no regrets. Her talent and compassion for her patients are second to none. More
