For a woman seeking breast revision, only an expert surgeon will do.

That’s because, first of all, you deserve only the best care, NJ resident or not.

You also need an expert because a second surgery in the same body area presents greater challenges than the primary surgery: such as the need to remove or work around breast implant scar tissue and more.

An expert breast surgeon must not only rectify your breast implant problem and replace your implants, but, if possible, prevent the same problem from recurring.

You’ll find some of the most talented breast surgeons are here in NJ and, even if it means you must travel, choosing the best will be well worth the trip.

Breast Revision in NJ: See a Surgeon Who Can Empathize

Successfully dealing with the complexity of corrective breast surgery requires top surgical skills, excellent anatomical knowledge and judgment and a keen aesthetic sense. This task requires years of experience combined with expertise on the latest breast surgery techniques.

As a woman – and a plastic surgeon focused on breast surgery, including reconstruction, I’m in a unique position to both understand what you’re going through and to use my skills and experience to help.

Helping women regain body confidence after a prior augmentation surgery is incredibly gratifying for me. I consider it a calling and devote much of my practice to these cases. Consider a visit to Bergen County NJ for a consultation about breast implant replacement.

I do not charge for the consultation because I know that too many women suffer needlessly with painful breasts (physically or emotionally) due to cost concerns. If this describes your situation, you owe it to yourself to see if you’re a candidate for breast revision. You are paying a price, remember, every day that you don’t address the problem.

Dr. Cohen Shares: Why I Specialize in Breast Revision and Reconstruction

Reshaping the breasts or repairing complications that can occur with aging implants (or problems due to poor surgical technique on your first implant surgery) can make a huge difference in your quality of life.

I feel that, through breast revision, I’m helping to improve lives, or at least make lives much more comfortable for women. I enjoy strategizing, finding the best surgical solutions to solve breast implant problems.

I enjoy connecting with women and I love seeing those smiles when the bandages come off.

Breast implant problems like the following can be solved. (I will name just a few here as they are discussed in other blog posts on our website):

  • Capsular contracture (breast hardness and shape distortion due to scar tissue).
  • Size change desired (it’s fairly common to change your mind about breast implant size over time).
  • Ruptured breast implants (This is a health issue and should be corrected immediately).
  • Visible distortions or ripples in or surrounding your breasts.
  • Implant ruptures.
  • Rippled implants.
  • Painful implants.
  • Heavy implants.
  • Old silicone or polyurethane implants.
  • Improperly positioned implants.
  • Symnastia, where your implants have melded into one, connecting in the middle.
  • And more.

Travel to NJ for Breast Revision: Get New Implants in Bergen County

If you live outside NJ, you may be hesitant to travel for surgery. Unfortunately the likelihood of finding a top breast surgeon in your neighborhood might not be so good.

NJ is the home of some of the best plastic surgeons in the country. (There are a few great surgeons in NYC as well, but plastic surgery in NY is very stressful and may be overly expensive.)

For those patients who need to travel in to NJ, breast revision surgery lends itself well to this, because it typically requires close monitoring post-surgery for only 24 to 48 hours.

After that, your follow-up visits are spaced well apart for your convenience. Of course, you may contact your surgeon at any time, 24/7, if you have a question or concern after your surgery.

Cohen/Winters Makes Traveling to NJ Easy

Here at Cohen/Winters in Bergen County, our practice makes it simple to travel for breast revision surgery. We have lots of women coming from out of state on a regular basis for breast surgery.

My staff can help with arrangements for you to stay at the nearby Hilton Hotel and we can connect you with a private nurse. This is especially important if you don’t have a relative with you to stay for the first 24 to 48 hours after your procedure.

Your surgeon will thoroughly examine you before releasing you to go home and go over all post-surgery instructions for your home care. (We explain it all before surgery as well, and give you the instructions in writing to take with you, to ensure that you heal quickly and with minimal discomfort.)

Vanguard Surgical Center in Maywood NJ

Our state-of-the-art Vanguard Surgical Center is adjacent to our offices and the entire experience is very private. The surgery center is the site of almost daily breast surgery and offers an excellent and well monitored recovery experience.

There are no crowded waiting areas and no huge office complex or high-rise building to deal with. If you prefer, you may spend your first night after surgery in one of our Vanguard recovery suites attended by our dedicated medical staff as you recover from anesthesia and get some sleep.

As an alternative, for more extensive or insurance-covered procedures, we can same-day admit you to our affiliated hospital, Hackensack University Medical Center. (We maintain surgical privileges there but typically perform procedures in our accredited Vanguard Surgery Center.)

For a Safe Breast Revision: Check Surgeon Credentials and Board Certification

If you are considering breast revision, in NJ or elsewhere:

  • Be sure to confirm state licensure and board certifications.
  • Acceptable certification must be from the American Board of Plastic Surgery. It is the only board authorized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) to provide certification to plastic surgeons.
  • An expert plastic surgeon should have board certification in general surgery and plastic surgery for the highest skill level.
  • Avoid a doctor certified in “cosmetic surgery,” which is not an officially recognized medical specialty. Physicians with only this credential might be dermatologists or gynecologists with little plastic surgery experience from brief, limited scope courses in basic breast surgery. This could be dangerous for a patient requiring complicated surgery like breast revision.
  • Ideally, your chosen breast surgeon should have reconstructive experience – for truly in-depth surgical knowledge and experience.
