"Dr. LeBlanc is AMAZING! I am very pleased with the results of my reconstruction after bilateral mastectomy.

While many women pursue breast enlargement surgery and breast augmentation procedures to improve their figure, many find the ‘implants look’ to be unnatural and can have difficulty adjusting to the size and shape after surgery.
New York Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Kenneth Francis, M.D., F.A.C.S. is a great option for your cosmetic surgery needs.
It can take time to find the right breast augmentation surgeon to perform your breast lift, breast augmentation procedure or breast reduction surgery. You’ll need to review the surgeon’s credentials, learn about the different services he or she offers and review breast augmentation before and after photos to gauge the surgeon’s skill level.
The term “Mommy Makeover” was coined in 2005 and has increased in popularity ever since. To restore your body to pre-pregnancy condition, a Mommy Makeover combines two or more plastic surgery procedures into one, lowering the cost and recovery time.
There seems to be a lot of attention recently about pain-free cosmetic procedures and especially breast augmentation. Most of this surrounds a new promising long-term local numbing medicine that has far-reaching implications. This local numbing medicine, specifically studied with breast augmentation, showed good results with little to no complications. This is potentially exciting to aesthetic patients who often fear discomfort associated with various cosmetic procedures. Often this is the only reason they do not proceed with their desires. However, there has been no study showing that any method of breast augmentation or use of special medicines has led to consistent “painless breast augmentations”.
Loose skin is a common outcome of extreme weight loss, such as after pregnancy, losing a substantial amount of weight from weight loss surgery, medical weight loss or natural dieting. Very few people can successfully get rid of loose skin with diet and exercise; the excess skin does not ‘burn off’ the body in the same way as body fat does, so surgery may be necessary to reshape and contour the body. Body lift procedures provide a solution for managing loose skin; these procedures involve repositioning the skin and removing excess skin folds to completely reshape the area. Plastic surgeons offer a number of different types of body lift procedures for patients who want to sculpt their body and achieve an attractive silhouette.
Because cosmetic surgery is now relatively safe and predictable many people have become relaxed about safety precaution. A lot of emphasis is placed on trusting your cosmetic surgery doctor or board-certified plastic surgery doctor to give you the results you expect. This means many patients find out about their surgeon's qualifications and neglect to find out about the anesthesia or the accreditation of the surgery rooms.
Your cosmetic plastic surgery procedure may leave you with scars, pain and stress during the recovery stages, and planning ahead with the right tools and supplies can make recovery much easier.
