Shaped highly cohesive breast implants may be new, but they’re not new to Dr. Glicksman!
Dr. Glicksman is one of a small number of breast augmentation surgeons in New Jersey and the United States with extensive training and experience with the new Highly Cohesive Gel Breast Implants, known as “Gummy Bear” 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 years of experience with “Gummy Bear” implants, using them for breast augmentation, revision augmentation, and breast reconstruction.
One of only 9 plastic surgeons in the United States and Canada presently on the Allergan Executive Council for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Glicksman strives to improve the outcomes for women undergoing breast augmentation and breast reconstruction. She lectures nationally and internationally and has authored numerous published papers. 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.
Choosing A Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
The field of cosmetic & plastic surgery has evolved over the centuries. From the earliest 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 facial surgery, breast augmentation, liposuction, and body contouring.
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 or Aesthetic Medicine”. In an era where physicians across the country are struggling with falling compensation for their services, there has been 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 office procedures such as fillers, Botox™ 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 surgery and plastic and reconstructive surgery, and then went on to complete a fellowship in cosmetic surgery at the prestigious Massachusetts General Hospital. What distinguishes her practice from these “cosmetic” doctors is not only her comprehensive training, but also over twenty years of experience as a cosmetic and reconstructive surgeon.
If you are considering plastic surgery, or even a non-surgical rejuvenation procedure, be sure that you select a board certified physician.…then ask WHAT board? Be certain to ask if he or she is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
