Breast and Body Cosmetic Surgery Center
As we get older, the effects of nature, weight loss, having children, and the stresses of our daily lives have a physical impact on our bodies. Areas of the body start to sag; it becomes harder to lose excess fat even with rigorous diet and exercise; and we may start thinking more about lifelong issues we have had with our appearance. Breast and body contouring surgery encompasses a number of procedures designed to lift, tighten, and smooth out the skin. Many of these aesthetic enhancement options eliminate excess fat and pull the skin taut, giving you a more youthful, toned appearance that can make you look great in a swimsuit and feel more comfortable about showing off your body.
The Breast and Body Cosmetic Surgery Center, a designated “Center of Excellence” within the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, can address a variety of issues one has with their appearance. With procedures such as breast augmentation, liposuction, and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck surgery), our experienced cosmetic plastic surgeons can meet your individual goals for a more contoured, fit-looking aesthetic. We also offer patients effective breast reduction procedures for both men and women that can take away the discomfort and embarrassment caused by overly large breasts.
Plastic surgeons at LIPSG are known for their commitment and dedication to being the best in their fields. Many of our doctors have specialty-training in specific breast and body contouring areas of plastic surgery at some of the most respected medical institutions in the nation, including Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Duke University Medical Center, and Harvard. Our plastic surgeons hold privileges at major hospitals across Long Island where procedures can be performed in a location most convenient to your needs. LIPSG has also opened two new operating rooms at our Garden City facility, both fully equipped and certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF) signifying the highest standard of care.
We are committed to helping you achieve your goals with breast and body contouring procedures that result in a beautiful, natural-looking appearance, without giving away the fact that you’ve had plastic surgery!
This guide will briefly describe some of the options available, with links to more detailed pages on each of our breast and body contouring procedures.
To schedule a consultation with one of our plastic surgeons, please contact the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group. During this initial consultation, your surgeon will describe all aspects of procedures you are considering and help you determine which option may be best for your needs. You may also have the opportunity to view the possible outcome of your procedure before even stepping foot inside an operating room. With Vectra 3-D imaging technology, you are able to see a computer-generated image of the potential results and get a better idea of how you may look after aesthetic enhancement.
Breast augmentation with implants is one of the most popular aesthetic enhancement procedures today, and is one of our most frequently performed procedures here at the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group. With the placement of silicone or saline breast implants, our plastic surgeons can add volume to the breasts for a fuller, more contoured appearance that’s more proportionate to your body frame.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Many women experience a sagging experience in the breasts due to aging, weight loss, heredity, and other causes. However, breast lift surgery (mastopexy) can eliminate excess skin and tighten the surrounding tissue, giving the breasts a more youthful, “perky” appearance.
Overly large breasts can cause a variety of problems, including pain and discomfort, breathing problems, skeletal deformities, and feelings of self-consciousness. The experienced plastic surgeons at our Long Island practice can perform breast reduction surgery that will effectively reduce excess skin and fat for smaller breasts that are in better proportion to the rest of the body.
For women who have had a mastectomy, or those whose breasts have been affected by injury or genetic deformity, a breast reconstruction from one of our skilled plastic surgeons can recreate the breasts with results that look and feel natural and beautiful. We perform a number of breast reconstruction techniques, including Flap Reconstruction and Tissue Expansion, that can help you meet your goals.
Sometimes, women who have undergone breast surgery from other plastic surgeons are not satisfied with the ultimate results. Our cosmetic surgeons at the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group offer breast revision surgery to correct problems or dissatisfaction caused by a previous procedure.
Inverted Nipple Surgery
Inverted nipple correction surgery repositions tissue to create nipples that face outward instead of inward. This procedure can not only help with self-esteem issues in many women who are affected by the condition, but also can address problems with breastfeeding.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Treatment)
Gynecomastia is a common condition in men that results in the breasts taking on an enlarged appearance. Typically beginning in adolescence, it can cause extreme self-consciousness and even depression. Male breast reduction can reduce excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue to give men a more contoured-looking chest.
Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck Surgery)
Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck surgery, can eliminate excess fat and skin in the midsection for a more firm, fit-looking stomach. A tummy tuck tightens the underlying abdominal muscles and re-drapes the skin with results you may not have been able to achieve with traditional diet and exercise.
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic enhancement procedures available. With safe, effective liposuction techniques such as Vaser LipoSelection® here at LIPSG, excess fat deposits can be eliminated in virtually any area of the body.
Buttock Lift Surgery
One of the most common areas of the body that loses definition and shape because of age and weight loss is the buttock region. At the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, our plastic surgeons can perform buttock lift surgery to eliminate excess skin and tighten the area of the buttocks for a firmer, more athletic appearance.
A Mommy Makeover procedure can help new moms rejuvenate the face, renew the breasts, and recontour the body after the physical rigors of pregnancy have taken their toll. A combination of procedures such as breast lift, liposuction, and injectable cosmetic enhancement can do wonders for rejuvenating your appearance and boosting your self-esteem.
Post Bariatric Surgery
For patients who have had bariatric weight loss surgery, LIPSG offers a number of procedures designed to help you take this new and exciting phase of your life to the next step. Surgical options such as body lift, arm lift, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), and liposuction can help you get rid of excess, loose skin and fat for tighter skin and a more toned appearance.
