Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Taylor are board certified plastic surgeons and Harvard faculty members in the Boston Mass and Cambridge area. They provide reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery to women, men and children at Mount Auburn Hospital, a Harvard Medical School hospital. Their practice provides a very personal feel and they have found the environment at Mount Auburn to be the perfect fit for their practice. With exceptional nursing, and views of The Charles River and the Boston skyline, patients recover in the privacy of a calm and tranquil environment. Since returning to the Boston area, Dr. Taylor and Dr. Sullivan have each year been named amongst the “Best Plastic Surgeons” in Boston by Boston Magazine and Castle Connolly. They often operate together to ensure safety, efficiency, and the best possible plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery for each patient. While the title ”Boston’s Best Plastic Surgeon” is claimed by many, we hope our practice provides an unusually thoughtful and honest approach to patient care.

Awards and/or Certifications:

What’s your background, education and training?

What advice would you give a patient looking to find a provider in your specialty?

Boston magazine provides an excellent list of Topdocs each year and can serve as a guide. Patients should welcome a few opinions with different plastic surgeons and find a surgeon with whom they feel comfort and trust; and also one who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Taylor and I frequently evaluate patients and operate together, to ensure safety, efficiency, and the best possible results. We work together to customize and tailor our approach for each patient with their goals in mind. We are here for a patient when they are ready, and the process should never feel rushed.

What treatments are you most excited to offer?

Non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures such as Botox or facial volume enhancement with fat grafting or fillers have become an increasing part of our aesthetic and reconstructive practice. Less invasive procedures can have dramatic results for patients with asymmetry or cosmetic concerns. Unlike many practices or spas with nurse "injectors" or aestheticians, Dr. Helena O. Taylor and Dr. Stephen R. Sullivan personally evaluate you and perform all cosmetic treatments.

What makes your business stand apart?

We strive to be honest and thoughtful in our patient care. While some centers may hope to maximize patient throughput, our goal is to provide individualized care, which includes a careful patient evaluation, thorough discussion of the risks and benefits, and customized surgical or non-surgical treatment. We see ourselves as physicians first and foremost, here to improve the lives of our patients. Many of our patients will benefit from having both Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Taylor operate together to optimize their outcome.

What do clients have to say about you?

"There are no words to describe what an awesome surgeon Dr. Sullivan is. He is patient, well spoken, extremely informative with explaining the procedure. He takes time to answer every question or concern. Dr. Sullivan does not make you feel rushed. I had a breast lift without implants. He eased my anxiety about the procedure and was very positive. Recovery went well. I am beyond happy with the results. He gave me a renewed confidence about myself. I would highly recommend Dr. Sullivan!"

"Words can’t explain how much I adore Dr. Sullivan and his entire staff. His wife is kind, honest and compassionate. Dr. Sullivan’s staff is the friendliest, most competent and genuine group — especially office manager, Jennifer. She’s the kindest patient advocate I’ve ever met. I’ve gone to Taylor and Sullivan Plastic surgery for several “minor procedures” and a couple bigger ones. The results are perfect. I trust these people like I’d trust my family. They’re artists, perfectionists and also parents. Good parents who glow when they talk of their children. I work in front of a camera, so quality work is paramount for me. Dr. Sullivan’s care, intelligence and interest in his patients proves to me over and over again — that he’s going to do the very best job possible in every procedure — big or small. Thanks to this incredible staff... you’ve truly made me a happier and more confident human being."

"I had a rhinoplasty with Dr. Sullivan earlier this year and he did the most perfect job. I met with another doctor prior and immediately chose him to perform the procedure. He instilled trust easily with his intelligence and friendly demeanor. My nose looks amazing and he had the best bedside manner and follow up care. I would 100% recommend him as a plastic surgeon."
