Generation Y, or Millennials as they are sometimes called, has been easing into adulthood for awhile. This is the generation that was born between the 1980s and the beginning of the twenty-first century.

Do you have a New Year’s resolution? This is the time of year everyone asks you that question. The old year is coming to an end, and we see an opportunity to “start fresh.” Many people begin every year resolving to better themselves so they will be able to live happier, healthier lives.

It may seem strange to put the words gift and surgery in the same sentence, but many plastic surgeons are noticing an increase both in the number of patients who receive “procedure gifts” and the number who choose to extend their own positive self-improvement experience to loved ones. In a large number of these cases, the procedure in question is s

One of the common impressions people have about liposuction is that it is a magic answer to being overweight. People often think that losing weight can be accomplished simply and easily via surgery, either bariatric or liposuction. But for people who are truly overweight or obese, liposuction is not the answer, and it’s important to understand why.
  The above video from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery beautifully illustrates another reason we hear from our patients about why they are considering breast implants: the difference it will make in how they wear their clothes. Feeling beautiful in your own skin and the clothes you choose to wear is someth
People may think that tummy tucks are only for women or only for women who have had children and wish to restore their pre-baby bodies , but in reality people - both women and men - choose to undergo the abdominoplasty procedure for a number of reasons. Here are five great ones we at Bancroft Feldman hear all of the time: A tummy tuck turns back th
We are all familiar with weight loss in America - both the successes and the failures. Unfortunately for many people, even the most disciplined, diet and exercise will not get rid of the last layer of stubborn fat that remains. To accomplish that they will need surgery; however, patients who are considering liposuction as a way to fix their figure
When a woman decides to have breast augmentation, size of her breasts in the present and the future is a big part of her motivation. She has an idea in her mind of what she would like her improved breasts to look like. But is there a “right” sized breast for any one individual and how do you choose between a “B,” a “C,” or a “DD” implant? There are
