Plastic Surgery


(718) 486- 4155

Plastic surgeons are available to address the needs of patients who are interested in improving their appearance, also known as cosmetic surgery. In addition, they are trained to provide reconstructive surgery that helps to correct any bodily deformations including cleft lips and tissues injured due to a fire or infection. Plastic surgeons provide surgical treatment of the hand, restoring one of the most valuable instruments that is required to lead a meaningful life as well as being able to work. Cosmetic surgery includes the face such as a face lift or eye lid surgery, breast surgery including augmentation and a breast lift. Liposuction allows the plastic surgeon to contour the body, thereby allowing a more defined appearance for the patient.
