Open any workout magazine and you will see articles about how to sculpt your butt through diet, exercise, or clothes designed to give your body pleasing contours. While diet and exercise may give you the sort of results you are looking for, these can take a long time to show up, and are difficult to predict. You may find that too much exercise ends up removing your curves and giving you a flatter, less attractive butt.

When the American Society of Plastic Surgeons released its numbers earlier in the year, buttock augmentation was the real headline-grabber. The butt-enhancing procedure was growing faster in popularity than any other plastic surgery operation.

The increase in augmentation procedures was attributed to the increasing popularity of celebrities with prominent buttocks. The most popular method of buttock augmentation is using fat. Silicone implants are less desirable because they are... More

Many of the male patients who visit our practice in New York City come by to ask about gynecomastia - male breast reduction surgery, which gets rid of excess breast tissue in men. If you are a male and have discovered your breasts getting disproportionately larger, you may wonder what is going on with your body.

The truth is, there are several potential reasons for gynecomastia. The condition is fairly common among young men during puberty as their hormones change, and will often... More

One benefit of plastic surgery is that it can fix the parts of your body you feel insecure about. Many of our patients are generally happy with how they look, but have one or two areas that they would like to improve.

Of course, there are patients who would prefer to make some major corrections, especially if the shape of their bodies has drastically changed. After delivering a baby, women find that their bodies have undergone a major transformation, and understandably, many are not... More

If you have been researching liposuction on the internet, chances are you've come across articles explaining the different types of liposuction procedures available. The version we offer in our New York City plastic surgery practice  is tumescent liposuction.

As women get older, breast cancer becomes a serious health concern. It is recommended that you get a mammogram every year once you turn 40, or, if you have had breast augmentation surgery, once you turn 35.

Many women considering implants are concerned about the effect they may have on their mammogram results. Mammograms look for lumps of dense tissue growing within your breast, and current technology is unable to distinguish these lumps from your breast implants, which have a similar... More

Losing weight is supposed to make you look healthier while boosting your self-confidence. If you lose a great deal of weight, however, you may find that your belly, thighs, buttocks, and other areas of your body now have loose skin that wasn't there before. Needless to say, this isn't the look you were hoping for. To fully get back your tight, skinny body, you may get better results by combining a tummy tuck with a liposuction procedure.

Both tummy tucks and liposuction are surgeries... More

If you are a man who has started to develop breasts, it's natural to wonder why this is happening to you.

People can be too trusting when they pick a doctor to perform their plastic surgery. Often, this is due to our past experiences with surgeons. If you have surgery on a broken leg, it goes without saying that your orthopedic surgeon is certified by a medical board, so it's logical that the same should be true for anyone who practices plastic surgery, right?

Sadly, this is not always the case. Doctors with no special training or proven skill will often open practices and advertise... More

One important decision when considering breast augmentation is the material you want to use for your implants. While several options exist, Dr. Lefkovits works with the two materials that have been approved by the FDA for breast augmentation surgery: saline and silicone. The material you use will depend on your physical characteristics and plastic surgery goals.

Saline breast implants consist of silicone pouches that are inserted into your breast and filled with sterile salt water.... More
