Dr. C. Andrew Salzberg is a New York Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in cosmetic surgery and breast surgery, including breast reconstruction. He is the Chief of Plastic Surgery Services, at the Mount Sinai Health System in NYC.
He is also the Chief of Plastic Surgery at St. John’s Riverside Hospital at Dobbs Ferry in Westchester. He also performs surgery at the Institute for Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery within the Hudson Valley Hospital Center .
Dr. Salzberg is best known as the pioneer of Direct to Implant and AlloDerm Breast Reconstruction. This type of breast reconstruction replaces the traditional Tissue Expander Method, which required two surgeries with in-office biweekly expansion for several weeks in between. In practice since 1987, his new, pioneered technique (2001) allows him to put in a permanent breast implant, with no need to expand or have a second surgery, because of his approach in using AlloDerm to act as coverage and support of the bottom portion of the implant.
An internationally renowned speaker in the field of plastic surgery, Dr. Salzberg specializes in the use of Strattice for Secondary Breast Augmentations. His renowned expertise with Strattice allows him to overcome some of the most challenging cases such as bottoming out, symastia, rippling and wrinkling, fold malposition and mastopexy/augmentation; Dr. Salzberg is also an expert in Autologous Fat Transfer for Revision Breast Reconstruction and Breast Augmentation.
