Botched Plastic Surgery? You Can Trust Dr. Schulman To Repair The Damage

Interviewed as one of New York City's top cosmetic surgeons, Dr. Matthew Schulman told New York's PIX 11 News that about 25 percent of his business is now repairing botched plastic surgery performed by other doctors -- and even con artists posing as doctors. The problem, he said, is that New York State rules allow any doctor to perform any procedure. "Dentists doing lipo, gynecologists doing breast implants. I've seen eye doctors doing butt lifts. It's crazy," Schulman said. And, illegal procedures -- offered at low cost without a licence -- can lead to results that are unattractive, dangerous and sometimes deadly. "It's very common for women to come in and have illegal silicone or other things not approved in the U.S. but allowed in other countries," he said. "They've got infections, hardness, lumps, chronic inflammation, skin breakouts." Elizabeth Hernandez shared her experience in the PIX 11 News story "Botched: When plastic surgery goes horribly wrong — and how you can prevent it." Hernandez reveals an unskilled surgeon left her "totally deformed." She visited Brazilian butt lift surgery expert Dr. Schulman, who skillfully repaired the damage. "I had to undo everything the other doctor did and then rebuild everything to give you this nice shape," he explained. The number of patients seeking help after botched plastic surgery procedures has risen so much that the American Society of Plastic Surgeons was inspired to launch a "Do Your Homework" patient safety campaign to inform the public that not all doctors are qualified to perform cosmetic surgery. The ASPS suggests ensuring your doctor is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (check their Find a Surgeon page) and that they operate in an accredited facility. They list the rigorous qualifications to be an American Society of Plastic Surgeons member. You can trust board-certified ASPS Member Surgeon Dr. Matthew Schulman.

EscarGlow® Your Way To Radiant Holiday Skin

To get ready for the holidays, Haute Living is recommending a visit to the office of Dr. Matthew Schulman, one of New York City's top plastic surgeons. Amanda Sanzone, Dr. Schulman's licensed aesthetician, was featured in their story "Holiday Ready? 5 Fantastic Facials in NYC." Available exclusively at Dr. Schulman's office, our EscarGlow® facial combines micro-needling with the application of a concentrated snail extract to repair the skin and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The publication calls EscarGlow® "one of the hautest new beauty treatments" -- and notes that "this snail secretion is applied during and after the micro-needling to increase penetration and effectiveness." The procedure is recommended for softening fine lines and wrinkles, shrinking pores, brightening the skin, improving the appearance of acne scarring or stretch marks, and overall skin rejuvenation and increased collagen production. For centuries, snails have been used for their unique healing properties. Peptides and growth factors in snail slime have been proven to show a significant increase in the amount of collagen and elastin production in the skin. The snails are not harmed in the process. After the EscarGlow® treatment, it is normal to have slight redness and sensitivity for about 24 hours. For the best results, we recommend three to six treatments -- performed once a month for the most dramatic result. Amanda Sanzone, who has a loyal following of celebrities and New York City's elite, offers a variety of skin and aesthetician services in our New York office. Contact Matthew Schulman Plastic Surgery online or call 212-289-1851 to schedule a customized skin evaluation and treatment with Amanda.

Botox-Assisted-Breast-Augmentation
Now, You Can Add Botox To Breast Surgery To Ease Recovery

One of New York City's top cosmetic surgeons is in the news yet again for pioneering an innovative technique. Dr. Matthew Schulman has added Botox to breast augmentation surgery to give his patients faster, better and more natural-looking recovery time. "During a Botox-assisted breast augmentation, a precise amount of Botox is injected directly into the chest muscle from the inside. The Botox will relax the muscles for about three to four months," Dr. Schulman told Byrdie. Relaxing the chest muscles reduces muscle spasms as they heal, meaning less pain and shorter recovery time. It also improves the look of your new breasts. "Usually after traditional breast augmentation, the implants can appear to be high on the chest for about six months," Dr. Schulman said. "This is normal, but high implants can look unattractive or very fake." When Dr. Schulman uses Botox to relax the muscles, however, the implants drop into a pleasing final position within four to six weeks. One of Dr. Schulman's patients -- 31-year-old Jennifer, who works in Manhattan -- told the New York Daily News about her experience with Botox-assisted breast surgery: "I felt great, like I didn't have it done. I was back to work in a few days. The implants settled quickly." As far as risks go, Dr. Schulman says, "When done correctly, it has no negative effect on the chest muscle and will not interfere with any chest or arm strength." If you are interested in breast surgery in New York City, you deserve the best. To personally experience why Dr. Matthew Schulman has been awarded virtually every national plastic surgery award, including the prestigious "Castle Connolly Top Doctor" and "America's Top Plastic Surgeon," contact our office online or by phone (212-289-1851).

Looking For A Plastic Surgeon? Make Sure You ‘Do Your Homework’

If you're interested in boosting your appearance and your confidence with cosmetic surgery, your search for a doctor might reveal a wide scale in pricing. As you consider your options, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons has a warning: "Do Your Homework." The number of patients seeking help after botched plastic surgery procedures has risen in recent years, the ASPS reports. More unqualified people are offering treatment, says ASPS President Dr. Scot Glasberg. Their "Do Your Homework" patient safety campaign informs clients that not all doctors are qualified to perform cosmetic surgery. "Sometimes patients will spend more time picking a color for a new car or deciding on a new car than actually investigating a surgeon that is actually taking your life into his or her hands, and that to me is frightening because it's your life. You can replace your car, but you can't replace your life," Glasberg said. Their advice? Make sure the doctor is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery -- the only certifying body in the U.S. -- and that they operate in an accredited facility. Their Find a Surgeon page is a helpful way to find a board-certified doctor. And, here's a handy list of the rigorous qualifications to be an American Society of Plastic Surgeons member. Nafsika Lourentzatos is sharing her story in the "Do Your Homework" patient safety campaign. She'd had silicone injections by unlicenced doctors as a lower-cost breast enhancement, and after years of dangerous complications, had to have both of her breast removed. "Your body is the most important thing that you have. Doing research and finding out as much info as you can … is extremely important," Lourentzatos said. "The trauma, depression and sadness going through with this whole experience, I wouldn't even want my own worst enemy to going through it." For breast surgery in New York City, you can trust board-certified ASPS Member Surgeon Dr. Matthew Schulman.

The Numbers Confirm 2014’s Booty Boom

The 2014 U.S. plastic surgery statistics have arrived. So, was it really "The Year of Booty," as many predicted? It certainly was!The numbers from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that butt procedures were among the fastest-growing cosmetic surgeries in 2014: * Buttock augmentation with fat grafting (11,505 procedures, up 15 percent in 2014) * Buttock implants (1,863 procedures, up 98 percent in 2014) * Buttock lift (3,505 procedures, up 44 percent in 2014) The reasons are both external -- admiring popular celebrity butts like Kim Kardashian's -- and instinctual, as scientists explain the genetic reasons for the attraction. New York City Brazilian butt lift surgery expert Dr. Matthew Schulman performs six to eight butt augmentations a week. Dr. Schulman takes unwanted fat from other areas of your body and processes it to extract the best fat cells to enhance your backside. Superior to implants, this method is safer, more natural looking and longer lasting -- the results will last forever. Dr. Schulman refined the traditional Brazilian butt lift, creating his exclusive SCOOP Lift® procedure, which combines the best aspects of a number of different buttock contouring techniques. View our before-and-after Brazilian butt lift photos to see examples of Dr. Schulman's clients.

Smooth Tuck
Is Our Exclusive Smooth Tuck® The Right Choice For You?

Patients from around the world are traveling to Matthew Schulman Plastic Surgery's New York office to experience the benefits of his one-of-a-kind Smooth Tuck®. Building on his many years of expertise with body contouring, Dr. Matthew Schulman developed the breakthrough procedure to help patients for whom a traditional tummy tuck wouldn't be the right choice. His exclusive technique has been featured on TV (including CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX and "The Doctors"), in magazines and online, earning him notoriety -- and a global client base. So, why all the attention? Smooth Tuck® is less invasive and offers a number of significant advantages that make it more desirable to a wide range of patients, including those considered too overweight for a traditional tummy tuck. Smooth Tuck® combines high-volume liposuction with a procedure similar to a tummy tuck that removes excess skin and contours the body. "A traditional tummy tuck is a skin and muscles operation, the Smooth Tuck® is more about the fat," Dr. Schulman says. He first uses liposuction to remove fat -- an average of 2 to 3 liters. (A standard tummy tuck removes only half a liter or less.) With the improved contour of the abdomen, flanks and bra rolls, the cosmetic results can be superior. "With the Smooth Tuck®, we're able to remove the fat and provide patients who are considered 'too obese' for a tummy tuck with the improved contours they desire," Dr. Schulman explains. Patients typically lose up to 10 pounds and two to three inches around the waist. The Smooth Tuck® does not involve cutting the abdominal muscles, so recovery is faster and less painful, allowing patients to resume their normal activities with less down time. "With the Smooth Tuck®, there is no muscle work. This maintains the blood supply to the abdominal wall. You can't do liposuction to the upper area of the abdominals and do muscle work because you run into wound healing problems. Because we avoid the muscle work, we can do the lipo as well," Dr. Schulman says. For patients who do require a tummy tuck, the stomach muscles are tightened. A traditional tummy tuck can have beautiful results for those who are close to their ideal weight and want to remove loose skin, tighten muscles that are weak after pregnancy and weight changes, and move the belly button to a more attractive location. These patients must avoid heavy lifting and physical exercise for six to eight weeks as their newly repaired abdominal muscles heal. After a Smooth Tuck®, however, patients typically return to work within seven days and may exercise around the two- to three-week mark. Another benefit: No visible external scar around the belly button. The procedure takes place under general anesthesia and can be completed in about 2 hours. If a Smooth Tuck® sounds right for you, our staff will be happy to help you make travel and lodging arrangements for your post-surgery stay in New York City.

Butt Lift Consultation With Dr. Schulman: What to Expect

There's no doubt that a voluptuous backside is the most desired body part these days, with pop-culture commentators declaring 2014 "The Year of Booty" and the huge splash made by Kim Kardashian's naked photo spread. Scientists have explained the genetic reasons for the attraction. For those seeking a curvy booty of their own, cosmetic surgery is an option. American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery statistics show butt augmentation rates increased by 58 percent from 2013 to 2014. Maybe you're thinking about meeting with a plastic surgeon -- want to know what it's like? StyleCaster writer Leah Bourne candidly shared all about her consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon and New York City Brazilian butt lift surgery expert Dr. Matthew Schulman. Bourne says she was "wondering about what could be done to my own not-too-big but not-too-perky pancake-shaped butt if I had a little professional help." Based on stories about other plastic surgeons, she was prepared for the worst when she arrived for her visit: "I've heard the horror stories of plastic surgeons shaming women with a million unsolicited suggestions about things they should do to fix themselves with plastic surgery’s help, and candidly, I was prepared to hear that and then some." She was relieved that Dr. Schulman didn't write on her body with a marker, and that he stuck to the question at hand. Dr. Schulman first asked her to describe what result she is hoping to achieve with the surgery. "The result, he said, wouldn’t be crazy, but would definitely give me a little more volume back there, and help me fill out a pair of pants better," Bourne explains. "The surgery would also help me achieve that 'slope' look that many women are after between the back and the butt." She marveled at before-and-after photos of Dr. Schulman's Brazilian butt lift clients: "Looking at the doctor's work, it was evident that there isn't one type of woman getting this surgery -- some were tall, others petite, some curvy, others slender, and the ethnicities varied tremendously. Bottom line: Butt augmentations have mainstream appeal." The photos also showed her that Dr. Schulman tailors his work to create a custom shape based on his client's unique body. "It's not about producing a bunch of women with the same butt, and that's a good thing," Bourne says. Dr. Schulman performs six to eight butt augmentations a week, including his exclusive SCOOP Lift buttock contouring procedure.

Cosmetic Surgery Is Just As Safe For Seniors, Study Reports

Medical advancements and expanded knowledge about how to stay healthy and vibrant with lifestyle changes are allowing more and more people to live active and fulfilling lives as they age. And, with that, comes the desire of seniors to look as young and radiant as they feel. But many might be wondering whether their age makes undergoing cosmetic surgery procedures more risky. Well, according to a study presented at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons' annual scientific meeting in Chicago, there's no need to worry. "Our study demonstrated that patients over 65 years old can safely undergo cosmetic procedures with a complications rate similar to younger patients when surgery is performed by board-certified plastic surgeon," explained Dr. Max Yezhelyev, who wrote the study. Researchers found that older men and women are at no greater risk than younger patients of having complications with cosmetic surgery. As the average age of the U.S. population climbs, the study shows that seniors can take advantage of the opportunity to rejuvenate their appearance without added concern. Published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the study -- called Safety of Cosmetic Procedures in Elderly and Octogenarian Patients -- reviewed information gathered from 2008 to 2013. A look at the numbers: Despite the seniors' increased risk factors (higher incidence of diabetes and a slightly higher average Body Mass Index), the difference in their post-surgery complication rate was statistically insignificant compared to younger patients, 1.94 percent compared to 1.84 percent. Even for those age 80 and older, the rate was only 2.2 percent. Seniors were more likely to choose facial procedures: 62.9 percent, compared to 12 percent. Only abdominoplasty indicated a higher complication rate: 5.4 percent to 3.9 percent. The most common postoperative complications in older patients were hematoma, infection and problems with the healing of wounds. If you would like to reverse the signs of aging, schedule a consultation with Dr. Matthew Schulman, who is highly sought after as one of New York City's top board-certified plastic surgeons. Dr. Schulman offers face lift, eye lift (blepharoplasty), neck lift and forehead lift / brow lift, alongside a variety of non-surgical treatments, including Botox, to restore your youthful glow.

What’s Coming Up in Plastic Surgery for 2015? [Part 2]

Looking ahead to the new year, cosmetic procedures are expected to continue growing in popularity. Continuing the list we started in our previous blog post, here's what the world of plastic surgery may see in 2015: The Eyes Have It The eyes are the major focal point of the face and a popular area for rejuvenation. Major advances in eye lift surgery (blepharoplasty) have made it easier than ever to improve the delicate eyelid area. A variety of non-surgical treatments are also available for the eyes, for those who would rather not have surgery. Keeping the Fat Refinements in harvesting techniques will continue to fuel the boost in fat grafting. Surgeons like it as a facial filler because it lasts longer and looks more natural. Dr. Matthew Schulman attracts patients from around the world with this exclusive SCOOP Lift buttock contouring procedure -- his take on the popular Brazilian butt lift, which uses your body's own fat to enhance your backside. Breast augmentation can also be performed using a patient's body fat. Using your own fat is safer, looks more natural and lasts longer than artificial implants. Don't Sweat the Small Stuff More patients are requesting minor procedures that can give them a major boost in their confidence -- little tweaks such as ear reshaping surgery (otoplasty), injectable fillers, the removal of moles or birthmarks, and upper-lip lifts. So, What's Next? Exciting new medical advancements are always being developed, especially in the field of plastic surgery. Next on the horizon, surgeons are hoping the FDA will soon approve fat-melting facial injections that can help reduce the appearance of double chins. A new topical form of Botox is also waiting for FDA approval. If you're looking to improve your appearance in 2015, visit one of New York City's top board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Matthew Schulman. Dr. Schulman's exquisite work attracts celebrities and other patients from all over the world.

What’s Coming Up in Plastic Surgery for 2015?

What will 2015 bring in the world of plastic surgery? As medical advancements make surgery easier and safer, interest in cosmetic treatments is expected to continue to climb. Top New York City board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Schulman can help make this the year you achieve the look you've been dreaming of. Looking forward to the year ahead, the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery revealed its predictions for 2015:

Doubling Up on Benefits

Patients are expected to combine cosmetic benefits with reconstructive/functional surgeries, and vice versa, as the line between the two fades in 2015.

"Stacking" for Success

This year could also see a rise in "stacking" procedures, in which treatments are combined to increase their efficacy. The benefits of these treatments can increase exponentially versus when they are used alone. For example, when Botox or other neurotoxins are used along with facial fillers, the fillers can target tissues more accurately, with longer-lasting results. Also, drugs can be delivered using lasers to ensure that the active ingredient reaches its target.

Smile, Your Face Is On Camera

Pervasive camera phones and photo-centric social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have just about everyone viewing -- and judging -- the appearance of their face now more than ever. From teens to seniors, photographs are more plentiful and more public. Those wanting to improve their appearance in closeup photos and "selfies" are turning to rhinoplasty, eye lift surgery (blepharoplasty), neck lift and other facial plastic surgery procedures.

Staying Young

Today's active seniors can look as young as they feel. A recent study shows that cosmetic surgery patients over the age of 80 are at no higher risk for complications than younger patients. This news could encourage even more seniors to improve their appearance in 2015. *** Look for more predictions to come in the next blog! ***

2014: The “Year of Booty”

As 2014 came to a close, pop culture commentators focused their attention on celebrities who displayed the year's most popular body part: a big, round booty. Billboard referred to 2014 as the "Year of Ass," and MTV News made a list of their favorite "2014 Biggest Booty Moments." Their lists include eye-popping visuals such as rapper Nicki Minaj's record-breaking "Anaconda" video and the single's cover photo, Beyonce as "Bootylicious" as ever in her MTV Video Music Awards performance, Taylor Swift showing some cheek in a short romper on the VMA red carpet, Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea rubbing their famous derrieres together as they teamed up for their "Booty" music video -- and, of course, no one could forget the image of Kim Kardashian's naked bottom on the cover of Paper magazine. Brazilian Butt Lift NYCTo achieve a voluptuous behind of their own, women visited plastic surgeons. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, buttock augmentation was the fastest-growing plastic surgery in 2013, increasing by 58 percent over the course of the year. (Statistics for 2014 should be coming soon.) Dr. Matthew Schulman, New York City Brazilian butt lift surgery expert, performs six to eight butt augmentations a week, including his exclusive SCOOP Lift buttock contouring procedure.

Tummy Tuck
To Keep The Weight Off, Shed Your Old Skin

You have been successful in your quest to drop a lot of unhealthy weight you had been carrying around. Great job! But, one thing may be left hanging (excuse the pun!) -- unattractive loose skin. Plastic surgery to reshape and tighten your new body can give a tremendous boost to your appearance and your confidence -- and, studies show it can also help you keep the weight off. Tummy Tuck New York CityResearchers from Henry Ford Hospital -- who presented their findings at the annual conference of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons -- discovered that formerly obese patients who lost massive amounts of weight after bariatric surgery were much more likely to maintain their weight loss if they had follow-up body contouring procedures. "Bariatric surgery has a measurably significant positive impact on patient illness and death," explained Dr. Donna Tepper, senior author of the study. "However, even with the technical and safety advancements we've seen in these procedures, their long-term success may still be limited by recidivism. There is a high incidence of patients who regain weight after the surgery." The study tracked the results of 94 patients who had bariatric surgery at Henry Ford from 2003 to 2013 -- 47 of whom followed their weight loss with body contouring procedures. The researchers recorded each patient's Body Mass Index (BMI): a weight-to-height ratio used to determine degrees of obesity. In the patients who underwent contouring surgery, their BMI decreased an average of 18.24 at 2.5 years after the procedure. In those who did not, the change in BMI dropped just 12.45. "As plastic and reconstructive surgeons, we are encouraged by the idea that improved body image can translate into better long-term maintenance of a healthier weight, and possibly a better quality of life for our patients," Dr. Tepper said. For weight-loss patients, Dr. Schulman Plastic Surgery offers a wide range of procedures to remove the excess skin and tissue left over from your formerly overweight body, including facelift, neck lift, arm lift, breast lift, thigh lift, tummy tuck / Smooth tuck, SCOOP Lift buttock contouring and Brazilian Butt Lift in New York City. Examples of some of Dr. Matthew Schulman's many satisfied clients can be viewed in our lower body lift before-and-after photos and upper body lift before-and-after photos.

We Like Big Butts: Science Explains Why

Last month, Kim Kardashian's naked Paper magazine spread garnered some serious attention. Just what it is about the combination of a tiny waist and a large, round bottom that men find so attractive? Well, it's instinct based on genetics and survival, of course.   Brazilian Butt Lift New York CityEvolutionary scientists explain it as "the perfect waist-hip ratio." Women with narrow waists -- a low waist-hip ratio -- have higher fertility, according to a 2004 study published in Proceedings of the Royal Society: Biological Sciences. This body type signals fertility and health because these women have higher levels of the hormones necessary to get pregnant, researcher Dr. Grazyna Jasienska explains. Live Science says research has revealed that men prefer a waist-hip ratio of 0.7 or lower when looking for a mate: Playboy centerfolds tend to have a ratio of 0.68.   Psychologist Devendra Singh said the hip ratio is a signal of whether the person will have enough energy to care for an offspring. The distribution of fat on the body is determined by sex hormones. The desirable waist-hip ratio indicates a woman is producing the proper amount and mixture of estrogen. And studies have shown that women in the ideal ratio range have an easier time conceiving and are less susceptible to cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes.   A separate study found curvy hips to be associated with intelligence. Published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior, the 2007 study found that women with ample backsides scored better on tests -- and so did their children. The researchers speculated that fat around the hips and thighs holds higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for the growth of a fetus' brain while in utero.  American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery statistics show butt augmentation rates increased by 58 percent from 2013 to 2014.  Plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Schulman, New York City Brazilian butt lift surgery expert, performs six to eight butt augmentations a week, including his exclusive SCOOP Lift buttock contouring procedure.  To see some of Dr. Schulman's satisfied clients, visit our Brazilian butt lift before-and-after photo gallery.  Contact Matthew Schulman Plastic Surgery online or call at 212-289-1851 to find out more or to schedule a private consultation.

Kim Kardashian’s Naked Photos Prove Booties Are Back, Big Time

Booties are back, big time! Although Kim Kardashian's naked Paper magazine spread didn't "break the Internet" as the publication predicted, there was some major hubbub over her full-frontal nudity photo -- and another in which she shows off her voluptuous derriere. Kardashian's pictures are the latest proof that our culture has become obsessed with ample bottoms -- following Nicki Minaj's record-breaking "Anaconda" video and the release of Jennifer Lopez and Iggy Azalea's music video for "Booty," in which they rub their curvy leotard-clad buns together. Widely recognized as an expert on Brazilian butt lift surgery, New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Matthew Schulman told the New York Daily News: "Kim's butt is one of the most requested. People want her large butt and round hips." He said patients want to look like Minaj, Lopez and Kardashian's sister Khloe. The question on everyone's mind seemed to be: Is the backside Kim Kardashian so brazenly displayed in Paper natural? Curves like that "almost never occur naturally," Dr. Schulman said. "In my experience, from seeing thousands of women, a large round behind is almost never attached to a tiny waist," he said. "Over the years, Kim's butt had gotten bigger while her waist has gotten smaller." Schulman also opined that computer tricks might have been used, sharing on his Twitter page: "Not sure what screams #photoshop more, the 12-inch waist, or the solid color background?" Buttock augmentation was the fastest-growing plastic surgery in 2013, increasing by 58 percent over the course of the year, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The Brazilian butt lift uses your body's own fat to lift, augment and contour your backside. Dr. Schulman has refined the traditional Brazilian butt lift to create his exclusive SCOOP Lift buttock contouring procedure. As Dr. Schulman told the New York Post, he performs six to eight Brazilian butt lifts a week, up about 25 percent from a year ago. "Five years ago, I never made a butt bigger," he said. "Everyone wanted their butt smaller." View Brazilian butt lift before-and-after photos of some of Dr. Schulman's satisfied clients.

Experience “EscarGlow™”, the hottest new beauty treatment

Dr. Schulman, a New York City Plastic Surgegon and his licensed medical aesthetician, Amanda Sanzone, are excited to introduce “EscarGlow™”, the hottest new beauty treatment.  This non-invasive specialty facial combines the unique healing and anti-aging powers of the snail with collagen-inducing microneedling to improve the health and appearance of your skin.

 Snails have been used for centuries for their unique healing properties that are attributed to the peptides and growth factors of the snail slime.  We combine the anti-aging properties of the snail slime with the collagen-inducing microneedling device. The microneedling device utilizes tiny needles that stimulate collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the appearance of stretch marks and acne scarring. The combination of these two powerful anti-aging techniques is the reason why “EscarGlow™” is one of the hottest beauty treatments around.

 The facial begins with a gentle cleansing to remove surface impurities. Next, the highly purified and potent snail slime extract is applied to the face and the microneedling device helps deliver these anti-aging molecules deeper into the skin. This treatment is non-invasive and clients feel nothing more than tingling. Next the face is soothed with a hydrating serum and your are back to normal business, looking fabulous!

 The “EscarGlow™” facial is exclusive to Dr. Schulman’s Park Avenue office.

 While benefits can be seen after only one single treatment, the true benefit is seen after a series of “EscarGlow™” treatments. To learn more about this exclusive treatment, or to schedule your “EscarGlow™” facial with Amanda Sanzone, call us at 212-289-1851.

Do You Suffer From “BOOT-BULGE”?

Boot Bulge New York CityAs temperatures cool and you slip into your Fall boots, do they feel a little snug? Are you having difficulty zipping up those knee-high or thigh-high boots? If you answered “yes”, then you may be suffering from “Boot-Bulge” and we have your solution – “Boot-Bulge” liposuction. Careful liposuction can be performed on the lower leg and calf area. This can reduce the overall size of your calves and improve the shape of the entire lower leg. Dr. Schulman is an innovator in the field of “boot-bulge” liposuction, having been featured on The Doctors TV, ABC News, CBS, and countless internet sites for this procedure. The procedure involves careful liposuction of the lower leg through very small and hidden incisions. Improvement can be seen within a few weeks and full improvement can be seen after a few months as the swelling decreases. This procedure can be done alone, or in combination with other areas of liposuction. This procedure is increasingly popular as fashion styles change and boots get slimmer and taller. Boot Bulge NYCWhile one benefit of this procedure is better fitting boots, the goal should be improved overall shape and appearance, and not necessarily just better fitting footwear. Dr. Schulman cautions that any procedure, no matter how minor it appears, can have potential risk. Calf liposuction is a very specialized procedure that most plastic surgeons do not perform, so make sure that you select a surgeon like Dr. Schulman who is experienced with this procedure. To schedule your consultation with Dr. Schulman to learn about “Boot-Bulge” liposuction, call us at 212-289-1851 or contact us here.

What Did Joan River’s Death Teach Us?

The tragic passing of Joan Rivers has again raised awareness surrounding the dangers of medical procedures. Without getting into specific details about Joan’s case (many of the details are still emerging and a lot is still unknown), I would like to comment generally about the safety of medical procedures, particularly ones that utilize general anesthesia or sedation. In general, when performed in a certified and accredited facility, medical procedures under general anesthesia or sedation are extremely safe. Certification means that the facilities meet high standards for safety. They are required to have medical equipment and a well-trained staff that can respond to any medical emergency that may arise. This will enable the outpatient or ambulatory facility to stabilize the patient so that he or she can be transported to a nearby hospital for more specialized emergency treatment. There are a variety of surgical procedures that can safely be performed at an outpatient facility, even when general anesthesia is used. I personally perform 500 surgeries per year in an accredited office operating room. All my patients are given deep intravenous sedation or general anesthesia and are discharged home a few hours after the procedure when they are medically stable. I have a Board Certified Anesthesiologist on staff whose sole responsibility is to monitor and care for the patient. Under no circumstance, should the plastic surgeon be the one responsible for the sedation or anesthesia. This is accepted standard of care and many procedures ranging from cosmetic surgery to endoscopic procedures are performed in this way. The idea that an elderly patient must always have a procedure done in a hospital is not always true. Age itself is not the only factor. Many 80 year olds are in better health than some 40 year olds. More important in deciding where to perform a surgery is the patient’s overall health and the risks of the actual procedure being performed. In accredited ambulatory facilities, every patient is required to have a physical exam to determine health. If the patient ahs significant medical issues, than the physician may require that the procedure is performed in a hospital. Also, if the planned procedure carries significant risks for complications, than a hospital may be the more appropriate setting. This enables that in the event of an emergency, there are many specialists in the same building who can quickly respond if needed. Also, it allows for the patient to be more closely monitored after the surgery, and even kept overnight or for a few days. The key to all this is that safety is the ultimate goal, in some cases, safety concerns warrant that a procedure be performed in a hospital. This unfortunate and tragic case should not initiate calls to stop all outpatient or office-based surgeries. Hundreds-of-thousands of procedures are safely performed every year in outpatient or office facilities. As the details of Joan River’s case come out, we may learn that things were done improperly or perhaps we will learn that the standard-of-care was followed and that this was simply a one-in-a-million complication that could have happened anywhere, even in a hospital. At the very least, this should expand the dialogue between patients and doctors about the risks surrounding any medical procedure.
