Newest Implant Options for Breast Augmentation

Breast implants have evolved quite significantly since they were first introduced in the 1960s. They have gone from thin shells filled with liquid silicone that ruptured frequently and were thought to cause systemic health issues, to thicker shells filled with salt water that still ruptured but the salt water content was thought to be “safer” when a leak or rupture did happen. More recently in 2007, the FDA approved a newer generation of silicone implants. These newer implants had a silicon gel, not a liquid, and were thought to provide a safer and more cosmetic alternative to the older silicone implants. These implants were certainly a huge advance and the surgical results were tremendous. Little had changed since 2007 until very recently. (more…)

Why Women and their men love Big Booties

Every day I am amazed at how many women I see in my office requesting buttock augmentations. For the past 2 years, this has been increasing in popularity and I now perform 6-8 buttock augmentations per week. While plastic surgeons do not disclose their surgical numbers to other plastic surgeons, the anesthesiologists who I work with and are in “the know”, maintain that I perform more buttock augmentation procedures than any other Plastic Surgeons in New York City. I have embraced the title bestowed upon me by my patients and the media – “Brazilian Butt Lift King of New York”. The only thing I would argue is that this title should extend beyond the confines of New York. My patients come from as far away as London, Bermuda, Dubai, Nigeria, and about a dozen other US states including California and Alaska! My northeast patients are now realizing that they don’t need to travel to Miami to get a big, round butt. (more…)

Traveling from out of town for your surgery?

Everybody understands the importance of selecting a qualified surgeon for your cosmetic procedures. Sometimes the best person for you is many miles away. About 20% of my patients live more than 3 hours from New York City. In fact, my patients have come from as far away as Texas, Alaska, France, England, Dubai, Thailand, Ireland, and Bermuda. Our office is very experienced with out-of-town patients. They can set up online and virtual consultations for those who are too far away to come for an in-person consultation. The required time to stay in NYC will vary depending on the specific procedure that you will be having, but most patients stay in the area for 5-10 days. We can also provide information about discounted hotel accommodations. We even have nearby apartments that are available for your stay in NYC as you recover from your surgery. Don’t let the distance prevent you from having the surgery you want. Don’t settle for your second choice just because they are “local”. To learn more about traveling for your surgery, contact our office.

The Biggest Scam in Plastic Surgery – the “Cosmetic Surgeon”

Want to know what is the biggest scam in plastic surgery? It is that a “cosmetic surgeon” is the same as a plastic surgeon. The truth is that a “cosmetic surgeon” is any doctor who has chosen to perform cosmetic surgery. This says nothing about their particular training or what their residency was. They may be general surgeons, obstetricians, or gynecologists. In fact, many “cosmetic surgeons” are not even surgeons at all. There are opthamologists, cardiologists, internists, and radiologists advertising themselves as “cosmetic surgeons” who are performing breast augmentations, tummy tucks, and liposuction. Some would argue that is the patients’ fault for allowing these doctors to perform surgical procedures that are outside the scope of medical training. (more…)

Fat is removed from places you don’t want it, and placed in places that you do want it, such as your buttock and hips. Brazilian Buttock Lifting is a very specialized area of plastic surgery and you must be very selective in the surgeon you choose. Click Here to learn more. (more…)

Breast Enlargement – How to choose the size of your implant

Even harder than deciding to undergo breast enlargement with implants, is deciding what size implant to choose. The implants can range in size from very small to very large. Choosing the actual implant size can be an incredible source of stress for the patient, her family, and the surgeon. There are several ways to choose a size – from photos of other patients, from computer imaging, and by trying on some implants. I feel that the best way to successfully choose an implant size is to try on the implants. I have all my patients come to the office a few weeks before surgery and bring the following items with them – a friend/family member/spouse, a bathing suit top, a tank top, a blouse, and a t-shirt.

What happens if my breast implants are too big?

Many women that undergo breast enlargement surgery with implants want to be very large. It is the responsibility of the surgeon to guide them and let them know if the implant size they are selecting to too big for them. What can happen if the implant is too large? An implant that is too large can cause many problems. These problems may occur soon after surgery or may occur many years later. The incidence of infection, capsular contracture, and implant malposition increases as the size of the implant increases. (more…)

Introducing “SCOOP Lift”, the latest in Brazilian Buttock Lifting

Dr. Schulman is proud to announce the introduction of his new technique for Buttock Contouring, the “SCOOP Lift”. Most people have heard about the “Brazilian Butt Lift.” This is a very popular procedure that removes fat from your body and then re-injects that fat into your buttocks. The goal is to make a larger backside. While increasingly popular, the traditional Brazilian Butt Lift has many deficiencies: The fat doesn’t always last, the buttock may be larger but it oftentimes lacks an appealing shape, and it is not possible in men or women with lack of donor fat. Dr. Schulman has drawn on his years of experience in body contouring and liposuction, to create a procedure that gives predictable and long-lasting results that are more cosmetically pleasing than the traditional Brazilian Butt Lift. “SCOOP Lift” combines meticulous fat removal from very specific anatomic locations and combines it with careful placement of this fat into the buttocks. By removing the fat with the eye of an artist, Dr. Schulman carves, molds, and sculpts the buttock, even before he puts any fat in it. After the fat is placed, the results are even more profound, even in people with minimal donor fat. Results of the “SCOOP Lift” can be dramatic. He can create a larger and more lifted buttock, as well as a narrow waist with lots of curves. The traditional Brazilian Butt Lift often just leaves you with a larger backside but without the desired shape. Dr. Schulman’s technique also gives you his signature lower back “scoop”, or that sexy curve to your lower back. Find out more about this latest technique for buttock contouring and why the media, celebrities, and people from all over the country are falling in love with “SCOOP Lift”. Call 212-289-1851 to set up your consultation with Dr. Schulman.

Did Taylor Swift get Breast Implants?

Pictures have recently emerged showing popular singer Taylor Swift looking more “endowed”. The singer is known for her long, thin body and her bustier appearance is spurring rumors that she has been surgically enhanced with breast implants. While I have many celebrity clients (which I will never name), Taylor is not one of them, so I can only comment on the Taylor Swift Breast Implants photographs that have appeared on popular websites like Hollywoodlife.com.

Want to change your belly button? Cosmetic belly button surgery is now possible in New York City

If you don’t like your belly button, you can change it. I routinely perform cosmetic belly button surgery in my New York City office. In fact, this has become one of my popular procedures with patients coming to me from all over the world. I perform about 5 belly button surgeries, or umbilicoplasty, per week. This means that I do more of these surgeries per month, than most board certified plastic surgeons do in their entire careers! There are a variety of changes that I can make to your belly button. I can convert your “outie” to an “innie”. I can eliminate that old belly button piercing that now looks out of place. I can remove a large hood at the top of your belly button. I can make a very small belly button appear larger. I can remove some of the line and wrinkles around the belly button. Maybe you were born with a belly button that you don’t like, or maybe you had a previous surgery on your belly button that made things worse. Many of my patients have had prior umbilical hernia repairs, tummy tucks, or attempts at umbilicoplasty by other less qualified doctors. The procedure is done in the comfort of my own office using only local anesthesia. Most cases take only about 45 minutes and you can go about your usual business immediately. My cosmetic belly button technique has been featured on The Doctors, Good Morning America, and in The New York Post. To learn more about cosmetic belly button surgery with Top New York Plastic Surgeon, call 212-289-1851 to schedule your free consultation.

The Newest Tummy Tuck Alternative – “Smooth Tuck®”

A traditional tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a great operation for the right person. It removes excess skin of the lower abdomen, tightens abdominal muscles that become stretched with pregnancies, and relocates the belly button to a more youthful location. The end result can be a flat and tight abdomen.

While the results can be excellent, there is considerable recovery that is needed after a tummy tuck. There is typically significant pain for 7-14 days, and physical activity will be limited for up to 8 weeks as the internal stitches in the muscle heal. This can be too long of a recovery for many.

I see countless young mothers in my practice that are trying to get back the belly of their youth. Unfortunately, the recovery of a tummy tuck is just too hard and too long. Imagine not being able to drive your child to school and activities for up to 2 weeks, or not being able to lift your 2 year old for 6 weeks. These concerns are one of the reasons why I created a new tummy tuck alternative, the Smooth Tuck®.

Smooth Tuck® is an alternative to the traditional tummy tuck, featuring a more rapid recovery and faster return to work, family, and physical activities. Because there is no muscle tightening, my patients have ½ as much pain and require ½ as much healing time. The majority of my patients are back to work in 7-10 days and unrestricted exercise in 3 weeks!

You might wonder what the cosmetic result of the procedure is, compared to a tummy tuck, if there is no muscle repair. Instead of the muscle repair, I do aggressive liposuction using a variety of methods (including Laser Liposuction). This gives improved contour to the entire abdomen, flanks, and bra rolls. In most cases the cosmetic results are equal to a tummy tuck, and in many other cases, the results are even better using my Smooth Tuck® technique.

Who is a candidate for this procedure? There are several main candidates:

  1. Women who would do great with a tummy tuck but want a faster recovery with a more rapid return to work, family, and physical activity.
  2. Men who have some excess skin of the abdomen from weight loss or aging
  3. Women or Men who are overweight and considered to be “no ideal” candidates for a traditional tummy tuck.

This procedure has been such a breakthrough, that is has been featured on CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, WPIX, Dr. Steve Show, The Doctors, and multiple magazines and internet articles.

Smooth Tuck® is my own personal procedure, created from my long experience with body contouring. Unfortunately, I have not yet taught other doctors how to do it. This is because this is such a great procedure that I am still weary about putting its reputation into other doctors’ hands. But you don’t have to live in New York to have the procedure. My office is experienced with out-of-town patients. In fact, over 35% of my Smooth Tuck® procedures are performed on men and women from outside New York State. I have performed this procedure on people from 4 continents, 15 countries, and 21 states! A 10 day stay in New York City is required after the surgery and my office will assist you in hotel accommodations, nursing care, and travel arrangements.

Is Social Media leading to an increase in Plastic Surgery?

Social Media is all around us. Most people have Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest accounts and this is leading to an increase in plastic surgery procedures. The connection may at first confuse you, but it is not so far-fetched. Many of these social media sites focus on photographs. We are constantly posting photographs of ourself, our friends and families. Whether we like it or not, this is helping to emphasize appearance. Nobody wants to look bad in a photo that is put on Facebook and posted to the world. It naturally makes us self-conscious about our facial and body features because we are seeing them for the first time as others are seeing them. (more…)

Liposuction
Can Liposuction improve your health? High volume liposuction can eliminate health problems associated with obesity.

The common thinking among plastic surgeons is that Liposuction is for body shaping, not weight loss. This is definitely true. The best candidates are people who are not particularly overweight, but have “problem areas” that they would like corrected. Perhaps this is the outer hips (“saddlebags”), flanks, abdomen, or inner thighs. Liposuction is a great way to remove some fat, and improve the shape of your body. (more…)

Breast Implants for $214 per month – Financing your Plastic Surgery in NYC

There are countless procedures to improve your body, but because these are elective cosmetic procedures, they are not covered by insurance or flex-spending accounts. For obvious reasons, plastic surgeons require payment in full prior to the procedure and this can be in the form of check, cash, or credit card. There is another method of payment that is becoming extremely popular – financing. (more…)
