Shaped highly cohesive breast implants may be new, but they’re not new to Dr. Glicksman!
The field of cosmetic & plastic surgery has evolved over the centuries. From the early documented reconstructive procedures of the sixteenth century performed to restore a lost nose, to modern day microsurgery and face transplants; the field of is constantly transforming. Plastic and Cosmetic surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery are credentialed to perform complex procedures such as trauma surgery, burn surgery, reconstruction after cancer, and the reconstruction of birth defects. They also routinely perform elective procedures such as breast augmentation and liposuction.
However, this may not be the case for a rising number of physicians who claim to be experts in the new and expanding field of “Cosmetic Medicine”. In an era where physicians across the country are struggling with falling compensation for their services, we have seen a torrent of new “cosmetic” and “aesthetic” doctors materialize. Straying far from their own areas of board certification, the majority of these practitioners leap into cosmetic practices with very little if any training in cosmetic or plastic surgery. Many of these practitioners may have received certification for procedures such as injectables or laser after as little as a weekend of training. Dr. Glicksman is a board-certified cosmetic surgeon in practice since 1991. She completed her training in general, plastic, and reconstructive surgery, and then went on to complete a fellowship in cosmetic surgery in New Jersey. What distinguishes her practice from these “cosmetic” doctors is not only her comprehensive training, but her twenty years of experience.

A Breast Augmentation Specialist
Dr. Glicksman is also one of a small number of breast augmentation surgeons in New Jersey and the United States with extensive training and experience with the new Form Stable Highly Cohesive Gel Implants, known as “Gummy Bear” breast implants. In 2005 she was given the opportunity to travel to Sweden to receive training on the use of these shaped gel devices. She now has 7 years of experience with “Gummy Bear” breast implants for breast augmentation, revision breast augmentation, and breast reconstruction.
One of only 9 plastic surgeons in the United States and Canada presently on the Executive Council of Allergan, Dr. Glicksman strives to improve the outcomes for women undergoing breast augmentation. She lectures nationally and internationally and has authored numerous published papers on breast augmentation. Her published works can also be found in prestigious plastic surgery textbooks, covering topics including the management of breast implant complications and patient education in breast augmentation.
If you are considering plastic surgery, or even a non-surgical rejuvenation procedure, be sure that the physician is board-certified…then ask WHAT board? Be certain to ask if he or she is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
