Surgical Office and Staff Bloomfield
At Youthful Images, the focus of the practice has always been the patient. For that reason, we are a cosmetic center that caters to a wide variety of patient needs, both in plastic surgery and non-surgical cosmetic procedures. As well as providing quality care and a wide variety of procedures for our patients, our office is also designed to offer a comfortable and friendly, yet professional atmosphere.
In order to give the highest quality of care, the staff of Youthful Images is comprised of highly qualified medical professionals, that have had extensive education and training in the field of plastic surgery. In addition, staff education is ongoing, with Dr Felice updating and training his staff in the latest advances in cosmetic medicine.
Nancy, RN, BSN, NE-BC Clinical Administrator
Nancy graduated from Barry University in Miami, Florida. She joined Youthful Images in 1997 as Clinical Administrator, prior to which her background had been in oncology, nurse consulting and hospital administration. She has been a Board Certified Nursing Executive since 1998 and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery Nurses, The CT Association of Ambulatory Surgery Centers/Patient Safety Organization as well as the National Association of Professional Women. Nancy is responsible for patient education, development and implementation of clinical protocols and procedures, as well as being an active member of the operating room team. One of her main roles is overseeing patient care and assisting patients through the surgical process. By answering questions and providing all the necessary information needed to make an informed decision, patients can then determine if plastic surgery is right for them. Every surgical patient meets with Nancy preoperatively, so she can further explain the procedure, review preparation for surgery, as well as what to expect postoperatively. In the operating room, Nancy’s role is to ensure the highest level of care is maintained throughout the surgical process. Her follow-up continues after discharge, where she speaks to every surgical patient the first night after their surgery to answer questions, review postoperative care or just offer reassurance. Patients can feel comfortable contacting Nancy with any questions or concerns they may have regarding their procedure. This attention to patient care is what we feel sets Youthful Images apart from other practices.

Sarah, MHS, PA-C
Sarah was born and raised in a small Connecticut town and first discovered her love for aesthetics and skincare working as an esthetician assistant in high school. She obtained her bachelor’s degree in Applied Exercise science from the University of New England in 2014 and went on to work in Cardiac Rehabilitation as an Exercise Physiologist at Saint Francis Hospital. She quickly learned that although she enjoyed promoting healthy lifestyle habits and helping patients implement exercise into their daily lives she wanted to expand her medical practice and went on to obtain her Masters of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from the University of Bridgeport. During her clinical rotations she fell in love surgery, specifically finding herself drawn to the plastic & reconstructive specialty. Given her aesthetic nature and eye for design she found plastic surgery to be the marriage between both medicine and art. She graduated in 2017 and began working as a General Surgery PA at Saint Francis Hospital initially specializing in Vascular, Breast, and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery. For the last 2.5 years she worked exclusively in Plastic & Reconstructive surgery and has refined her surgical skills within the specialty having first assisted on everything from microsurgical technique for free flap reconstruction to liposuction. Given her passion for Plastic Surgery and her artistic eye she is thrilled to join Youthful Images where she will continue to employ her surgical skills assisting Dr. Felice in the OR and return to her roots in aesthetics.
In her free time she enjoys interior design, building and refurbishing furniture, sewing, and spending time with her loving family and friends.
