Reconstructive Breast Surgery: We offer (1) Immediate Breast Reconstruction – working with your breast cancer surgeon in the hospital at the time of the cancer removal surgery to perform immediate breast reconstruction; (2) Delayed Breast Reconstruction – breast reconstruction after your breast cancer surgery; and (3) Revisions of breast reconstructions. It is never too late to consider breast reconstruction or a revision of a previous reconstruction.

  • Areola Reshaping: Individuals may opt to undergo an areola reshaping procedure to correct inverted nipples or enlarged nipples acquired through genetics. The procedure consists of creating a periareolar incision around each areola, then removing the excess skin.
  • Breast Implant RemovalBreast implants removal surgery and replacement is offered for patients seeking to achieve their desired chest aesthetic. Breast implants removal surgery may consist of an en bloc, partial capsulectomy, or total capsulectomy procedure, depending on the patient’s desired post-op result.
  • Implant-Based Breast ReconstructionImplant-based breast reconstruction offers an acceptable cosmetic outcome without using tissue from the body.
  • Nipple (Areola) CorrectionNipple correction surgery corrects problems associated with enlarged, asymmetrical, protruding, or inverted nipples and can be seen in both men and women.
  • Nipple (Areola) Reconstruction: Nipple / Areola reconstruction allows the NYC plastic surgeon to put on the finishing touch for the best possible aesthetic outcome on your breast reconstruction surgery.
  • Partial Breast ReconstructionReconstruction of partial breast defects is often called oncoplastic surgery. Many women are dissatisfied with the cosmetic appearance of their breasts after lumpectomy. Since every lumpectomy defect is unique, the options to reconstruct them vary from patient to patient.
  • Revision Breast Reconstruction: Many breast cancer patients who have reconstruction end up having revision surgeries. Breast revision reconstruction is performed when the reconstructive surgery the patient initially received resulted in an aesthetically disappointing outcome.
  • Secondary Breast Reduction / Lift: Secondary breast surgery is often performed on patients who desire corrective or revisional alterations to a prior surgery. Issues that may arise as a result of an insufficient breast reduction or breast lift surgery include sagging breasts, uniboob, bottoming out, asymmetrical breasts.

Cosmetic Breast Surgery (Plastic Surgery):

  • Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants)Breast augmentation plastic surgery, or augmentation mammoplasty, uses breast implants to increases breast size, which improves symmetry, enhances appearance, and restores a confident self-image.
  • Breast Lift | MastopexyA mastopexy lifts and reshapes breasts. Weight loss, pregnancy, and aging all can cause breasts to droop and lose their shape.
  • Breast ReductionBreast reduction plastic surgery involves an individualized approach, which is tailored to each patient, to improve the size, shape, and appearance of an overly large breast.
  • Nipple ReductionNipple reduction surgery aims to change the size and shape of the areola (height and width) and restructure it to align its appearance with its pair. The main goal for nipple reduction surgery is to restore a more balanced and attractive chest contour, while making every effort to preserve nipple sensation.
  • Revision Breast AugmentationBreast implant removal, correction, and replacement are offered by the best in class NYC plastic surgeon.
