Breast lift

Breast lifts are on the rise.  I have been performing two breast lifts with or without implants per week.  Limiting the incision to just around the areola (dark area around the nipple) helps the scar blend in and is harder to discern when healed.  The sensation to the nipple is usually preserved with this technique and the postoperative pain is minimal with patients returning back to work in just a couple of days.  Having a fear of needles myself (can you believe it???) I use absorbing sutures so there are no stitches to remove.  I do not use any drains in my...

Liposuction and the Brazilian Butt Lift Performed by a New York City Plastic Surgeon

Liposuction is the most common cosmetic procedure performed in the United States.  In the right Board Certified Plastic Surgeon's hands, not only can your waistline be made significantly thinner, your buttocks may also be 'sculpted' to appear larger and more shapely.  The "sweetheart" curve at the apex of your buttocks may be recreated with liposuction alone.  The upper portion of your buttocks which is often lost with even the slightest weight gain, may be reshaped and separated from lower back and hip fat.  The inner and outer thighs as well as the  infragluteal areas ( fat below your buttocks crease) may also...

Cosmetic Procedures for Men

Although women continue to dominate when it comes to undergoing plastic surgery, more than ever men are proving that they desire cosmetic enhancements as well. Just like women, they have “problem areas” too – places on the body where diet and exercise do not improve.  Many men are also unhappy with the lines and wrinkles that have come with aging, and realize that over-the-counter products can only take them so far. Although women may be more likely to talk amongst one another about their self-consciousness, men are still going forward with a cosmetic procedure to enhance one or more parts...

Full vs. Mini Tummy Tuck

Many patients are unsure if they should undergo a full tummy tuck (“abdominoplasty”) or a mini tummy tuck to correct a protruding abdomen or excess abdominal skin. Both procedures will provide a more streamlined body contour, and the approaches to both surgeries are similar. However, the full or “traditional tummy tuck” is more invasive and requires a slightly longer recovery time than a mini tummy tuck. It is usually recommended for patients who desire improvement to the entire abdomen. The full tummy tuck utilizes two incisions: one horizontal crescent-shaped incision located beneath the navel which spans the pelvis from hip...
