13.8 million cosmetic procedures were completed in 2011. Cosmetic procedures are more popular than ever - for both men and women!

The chin can dramatically affect the overall appearance of the face by providing balance, definition, and beauty. If the chin is weak or overly prominent, the overall facial appearance may suffer. Chin augmentation, also known as mentoplasty, is a surgical procedure that uses implants to build up a receding or weak chin. Many people seek chin augmentation for aesthetic purposes, though the surgery can also help to correct congenital or traumatic abnormalities.

Dr. Arnold Breitbart is accomplished in the wide spectrum of plastic surgery. From his offices in Manhattan and Long Island, he provides renowned cosmetic surgery services to patients seeking abdominoplasty, Liposuction, breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, face lift, rhinoplasty, blepharoplasty, gynecomastia surgery, and other body contouring procedures. He also offers non-invasive treatments such as Restylane®, Perlane®, BOTOX® Cosmetic, JUVÉDERM™ Injectable Gel, and Radiesse® injections.

Dr. Michelle Hardaway, M.D.,F.A.C.S. has a broad and extensive background not only in plastic surgery but general surgery as well.

Even though the breast augmentation procedure is still one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the United States, it is not without its fair share of complications. Some patients experience a very high level of pain from muscle spasms right around the implant and chest muscles. A new technique using Botox during the breast augmentation procedure can help to reduce some of this pain. It’s known as “Botox-assisted” breast augmentation because the surgeon injects Botox into the muscle at some point during the procedure.

Unfortunately, diet and exercise does not always get rid of those stubborn fat deposits that naturally exists in the tummy, legs, hips, saddlebags, etc. Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that produces great results which ends in a fast recovery.

In the U.S alone, more than 30 million women suffer from pelvic relaxation. Pelvic Relaxation is a condition resulting in a loss of sexual sensation and many times urinary incontinence. Usually, this loosening is the result of childbirth or trauma. In the past, women would dutifully perform hundreds of daily Kegel exercises and buy all sorts of gadgets to help tighten their vaginas, but mostly the result was no real improvement. Now women are discovering new and effective alternatives to tightening their vaginas and regaining control.

The holiday season is approaching quickly and it’s the perfect time to get a touch-up using highly effective fillers such as Restylane® and Juvéderm®. But many patients often hesitate or postpone making an appointment because of the bruising they have come to associate with injectable fillers.

Dr. William Rosenblatt, Director of Lenox Hill Plastic Surgery Center, is now using Exparel, a new local anesthetic formulation that can provide 2 to 3 days of pain-free tummy tuck recovery or "Mommy Makeover."
