Dr. Romita has helped pioneer a unique approach to reversing the aging process through keen appreciation of the synergy among medical disciplines. The guiding force of his approach is a concept called "sequential intervention," whereby the early signs of aging are corrected with less invasive techniques for as long as possible. Progressively more complex surgical enhancements are introduced only when they are necessary and when the benefits can be maximized. According to Dr. Romita, "The goal of modern plastic surgery is to preserve a youthful appearance when possible and restore only when necessary to achieve a natural-looking, harmonious result."

Advanced figure restoration: Dr Romita is a pioneer in restoring body aesthetics in women who have had problems with their appearance after mid life weight gain or post partum weight gain with skin excess.  This is especially true in women who have had multiple C-sections with scars and excess midriff skin.  He also specialized in skin excess following bariatric procedures. Dr Romita has done over 200 of these operations in the past three years; he and his team can correct hernias as well as procedures involving liposuction and skin removal.

Due to his extensive experience in reconstruction he can restore a youthful figure in patients who have had multiple births with or without c sections; he can also correct deformities of the breast.  These aesthetic/reconstructive can often be covered by insurance when out of network benefits are available. This can be determined by calling his office for an evaluation.
