Meet Dr. Salzberg

Founding Partner, New York Group For Plastic Surgery (NYGPS) System Chief, Plastic Surgery, Mount Sinai Health System, NYC

Dr. C. Andrew Salzberg is one of New York City’s most esteemed and experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. At the very top of his 39+ year medical career, Dr. Salzberg specializes in refined cosmetic surgery of the face, breast, and body, as well as advanced breast reconstruction. He is also the System Chief of Plastic Surgery at the Mount Sinai Health System, a position he has held with great honor and distinction since 2016.

Dr. Salzberg is internationally known as the pioneer and innovator of “One–Step” or Direct to Implant Breast Reconstruction, made possible, in part, by the development of AlloDerm, a biologic material. This type of breast reconstruction replaces the traditional Tissue Expander Method, which requires two surgeries (and therefore, two recoveries, a second set of risks, and a prolonged life-disrupting experience, plus several weeks of in-office expansion in between). His work, technique, and recognition in the field of immediate breast reconstruction has allowed him to improve outcomes for patients here in NYC, as well as across globe. As an international clinical educator, he is passionate about teaching the next generation of surgeons, making a career defining impact on raising the bar, in terms of outcomes, for women seeking post-mastectomy reconstruction around the world.

Dr. Salzberg is also well-respected for his work in Revision Secondary Breast Augmentation and Reconstruction. Many patients who’ve had complications or less than desirable aesthetic results come to Dr. Salzberg and NYGPS to help them overcome some of the most surgically challenging cosmetic and corrective issues such as bottoming out, rippling/wrinkling, fold malposition, symmastia, and mastopexy/augmentation. He is also an expert in Autologous Fat Transfer for Cosmetic Breast Augmentation and Revision Reconstruction.

He is a Professor at the University of Southern Denmark.

With nearly four decades of experience practicing refined cosmetic surgery, Dr. Salzberg is a master in achieving artful and natural-looking results. His years of experience offer patients unparalleled safety and predictability. He is especially drawn to surgical refinements of the aging face, as well as the precise placement of Botox and Dermal Fillers for anti-aging prevention.

Although Dr. Salzberg is known for his exacting and natural-looking cosmetic and reconstructive surgical results, he’s beloved for his delightfully human nature. Patients at NYGFP are immediately put at ease by Dr. Salzberg’s warm, sincere, and endearing demeanor. They appreciate the extra time he takes to conduct “New York’s most thorough, educative, and Vectra-assisted surgical consultation.” They also admire his humanitarian work and spirit of global volunteerism, that has spanned nearly four decades.

Dr. Salzberg has been recognized as one of the “Top Doctors for Women from Coast to Coast” (Consumer Guide, America’s Top Doctors, Ladies Home Journal). He is a recipient of the Doctors’ Choice Awards and has held the honor of being named one of the “Top Doctors” in the New York Metro Area.

“Dr. Salzberg and his team all went above and beyond my expectations. He truly cares about his patients. His hard work and wonderful personality made me feel so at ease and worry free! I couldn't have been in better hands!”
