Breast augmentation surgery is not a minor procedure. Not only does this surgery require high-level surgical skills and modern techniques, the plastic surgeon must have an “X-factor:” a discerning eye for balance, harmony, and natural beauty. Finding a breast augmentation surgeon who is held in high esteem by his or her peers is an effective way to find a surgeon you can trust and who you are confident will help you achieve your personal aesthetic vision.
We have developed a list of the best breast augmentation surgeons in the U.S.A., who are recognized for their accomplishments in the field of breast augmentation surgery, and who Dr. Teitelbaum has worked with and respects their skills and ability to handle a wide array of cases:
Dr. Caroline Glicksman, New Jersey Plastic Surgeon
If you live in New Jersey, make an appointment to meet with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Caroline Glicksman. Her qualifications and experience make her one of the most sought-after breast augmentation surgeons in the U.S.. She lectures both nationally and internationally on the latest developments in breast augmentation and reconstruction and is a highly-respected member of the medical community.
Cohesive gel implants (or gummy bear implants) may be new to some plastic surgeons, but Dr. Glicksman was one of the few plastic surgeons to travel to Sweden and become trained in these advanced implants in 2005. She has over a decade of experience in these state-of-the-art, softer, more naturally-shaped breast implants. Her professional life has been dedicated to serving women who want to enhance breast size, shape, or projection, or restore breasts that have been lost due to a breast cancer diagnosis. Her professionalism, compassion, and focus on the most advanced surgical techniques has made her a leader in the field of breast augmentation in New Jersey.
