With the go-go-go of summer in the rearview mirror, now is the perfect time to consider three

popular post-summer treatments: breast augmentation, rhinoplasty or a mommy makeover. At the

Mount Sinai/New York Group For Plastic Surgery, we think fall is the perfect opportunity to take the

time to do something for yourself, before the stress of the holidays kicks in. Since all three

procedures require a bit of recovery time, this makes fall the perfect season to enhance your

appearance and have you ready to shine by the holidays.

1. Breast Augmentation

It is normal for our breasts to lose volume and shape as we age. Pregnancy, breastfeeding and

hormone fluctuations further promote these changes. Breast augmentation eliminates sagging and

flatness, returning breasts to their youthful shape and fullness. At the Mount Sinai/New York Group

For Plastic Surgery, our highly-trained surgeons will evaluate your current breast tissue, listen to

your concerns and help you choose from the following breast augmentation techniques:

Breast Implants

Silicone or saline breast implants are placed under your current breast
tissue to enhance your breasts. Both implants have an outer silicone shell and are filled with

either silicone gel or saline. We typically recommend silicone breast implants for most of our

patients, because silicone implants look and feel more natural than saline. Both are

considered safe and are approved by the FDA. However, your surgeon may recommend

saline breast implants if you have substantially uneven breast tissue because the implant can

be placed and then manually filled to create more accurate symmetry. Our experienced

surgeons will help you navigate these decisions to find the implant that will offer you the

best possible results.

Fat Transfer

This new procedure uses liposuction to remove fat on your abdomen, hips or
buttocks. After the fat is extracted, it is purified and inserted into your breasts. Fat transfer is

recommended for women who are seeking a modest increase in breast size (a cup size or

less) or who want to enhance their breasts without looking like they have had work done.

Some patients prefer the fat transfer process because the fat is harvested from their own

body, eliminating the chance of an allergic reaction. Other patients love the added benefit of

having fat removed from a troublesome area. In addition, fat transfer uses small incisions to

place the fat into the breasts, thus scarring is minimized and the recovery is faster.

2. Rhinoplasty

The nose is front and center on our face – often the first thing we notice about others and the facial

feature we are the most self-conscious about. A rhinoplasty can help you feel more confident about

your nose and transform your facial features by:

  • Bringing your nose into proportion with the rest of your face
  • Reshaping your nose
  • Eliminating bumps or deformities
  • Straightening the slope of your nose
  • Reducing nostril size

In addition to being accomplished cosmetic surgeons, our doctors are also skilled reconstructive

surgeons. With their training and expertise, your surgeon can improve the function of your nose by

removing obstructions that interfere with breathing and correcting abnormalities in the structure of

the nose.

3. Mommy Makeover

Many physical and hormonal changes occur during and after pregnancy that can leave a woman’s

breasts, face and body soft and saggy, with stubborn pockets of excess fat. The mommy makeover

combines multiple procedures into one surgery to transform your post-pregnancy body:

Tummy Tuck

This area of a woman’s body undergoes the most strain and stretch during

pregnancy, leaving loose skin and pockets of fat after childbirth. A tummy tuck removes

excess skin and fat tissue from the abdomen, tightens abdominal muscles and sculpts the

waist to reveal a trim and tight figure.


Pockets of fat often develop during pregnancy and are challenging to shed

after childbirth. Liposuction will permanently remove stubborn fat on your stomach, sides,

hips and thighs, leaving those areas smooth and slender. Liposuction can also remove the fat

that causes a double chin and revitalize the appearance of your face.

Breast Augmentation

Pregnancy causes breasts to lose their shape and volume. Breast

augmentation returns breasts to a youthful fullness and perkiness. Our surgeons use

implants (silicone or saline) or fat transfer to enhance your breasts. You can also choose to

get a breast lift or reduction to further enhance your breasts.

Our patients at the Mount Sinai/New York Group For Plastic Surgery love how each of these

procedures can transform their appearance and give them renewed confidence. If you are interested
