Nerve Pain Risk

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

Hello, You ask an interesting question, and we are sorry to hear about your past difficulties with nerve pain. It is completely understandable that you should have concerns considering your history. In Dr. Rapaport's 30 years of experience performing this surgery, he cannot remember a single patient that has had chronic nerve pain issues following a breast augmentation. He understands this to be a very rare and unusual complication. He however recommends that you speak with your neurologist to confirm that there is nothing in your anatomy that places you at higher risk for this particular complication. If you are local to NYC, you are more than welcome to schedule a virtual (then in-person) consultation with our office to further discuss your concerns and speak face-to-face with Dr. Rapaport. We wish you the best in your journey!

Bad Profile

Chin Surgery

Member Response:

Hi LadyBelle, This is a relatively common problem, and many people start to notice these kinds of changes as they age. It appears that you do not have very good definition between the border of your jawline and your neck. This may well be caused by a small relative excess of fat in your neck. You would be amazed at how little fat it takes in that area to cause this kind of problem. The great thing is that liposuction, which can be done under local anesthesia and with very small pokes, has the potential to really improve your situation. I suggest you reach out to a local board-certified plastic surgeon near you with whom you could schedule a consultation, during which you could also discuss any concerns you have about your nose. Thank you for your question, and I wish your luck in your journey!

Wondering my options

Injectable Fillers

Member Response:

Hi Magaly, What you are describing is a very common problem that many women struggle with. When a board-certified plastic surgeon takes a look at you, they will primarily be analyzing the position of the nipples and breast tissue in relation to the fold under your breasts. From this analysis, they could then determine if a breast lift or implants are the best option for you. If the nipple position is significantly below the fold and you have lots of extra skin, a lift could be what is recommended. However, if there is overall sagginess or emptiness but the nipple position is not too low, the best option for you could be implants. I recommend you obtain a virtual consult with your local board-certified plastic surgeon. If you are interested, we are based in New York City but would be more than happy to schedule you for a virtual consult. I wish you the best of luck on your journey.

Uneven eyes

Eyelid Surgery

Member Response:

Hi Nate, You ask a great question. Usually, everyone has some degree of asymmetry, and many people are bothered by the same thing you are bothered by. Our asymmetries are all over the body and face, and relate to slight differences in bone, muscle, and soft tissue. Fortunately, with botulinum toxin, it is frequently possible to treat asymmetry around the eyes. Your next step would be to find a board-certified plastic surgeon near you to whom you could send photos of your eyes. You would then be able to see how they could help you address your problem - there is a very good chance they would be able to do so in this way. We are based in New York City, but our office would be able to schedule you in for a virtual consultation if you are interested. I wish you luck on your journey!

Absolutely AMAZING ! I have been working out all my life but never could get my abs to look the way I wanted ...always carried that excess fat in my love handles. Cool sculpting was the answer. Now my waist looks the best it ever has. It was painless with NO downtime....Couldn't be happier!
I visited Dr. Rapaport several weeks ago in need of several facial stitches after a sports injury. I was awed by the professionalism and care the good doctor exhibited. His beautiful office and the relaxing classic rock he played while operating completely calmed my nerves. He talked me through the entire procedure, explaining exactly what he was doing and why in each step. Dr. Rapaport's calm demeanor and expertise made for a quick and painless operation, and I am so glad I was referred to him. When I had the stitches removed and at my follow-up, I was similarly awed by his office staff. I would recommend him to anyone, anytime!
I'm a 39 y/o mom of 4 ages 8 and under. Prior to breastfeeding, I was a 34 D. However, breastfeeding left my breasts deflated and saggy. I exercise regularly and live a healthy lifestyle at 5' 8" and 130 lbs. I visited several doctors in NY area for consultations with split recommendations of just implant vs. implant with lift. I did not want the scars of a lift. Dr. Rapaport was confident that I could have full breasts with just an implant and, based on his pictures and reviews, I believed him. Surgery was on a Friday at 9 am and I was out of the office by noon. Recovery from anesthesia was better than expected- actually laughing and feeling very good. I was in pain and needed pain meds until Sunday (2.5 days). I followed the massage technique instructed by Dr. Rapaport. By the second f/u visit at 11 days post surgery, my breasts looked WONDERFUL!!! You cannot wipe the smile from my face. I am so happy with my decision to have this done. The results look exactly as predicted by Dr. Rapaport. My husband was never a breast man... until now!
