New York City Plastic Surgery
Hello, welcome to my website. I am Dr. Donald Roland and I'd like to introduce you to my practice and my philosophy on cosmetic enhancement surgery. I have been in practice on the Upper East Side of Manhattan for over ten years and during this time I have been fine-tuning the process a patient experiences, from the initial consultation to the final result.

My body has really taken a hit from having my three kids. Do I need one big surgery or a few individual ones?
First, and foremost, combination surgeries can only be done on patients who are medically healthy. Once this is established certain surgeries can make a lot of sense to combine. This is due to the ability to benefit from one recovery instead of several, and for the financial savings. The cost of splitting the procedures is higher due to paying for anesthesia and operating room fees twice.
The most common combination procedure is any breast surgery with a tummy tuck. This combination is called a "Mommy Makeover" and is designed to restore a woman's figure back to her pre-childbirth state. Breast surgeries here are customized to what's needed, and can range from breast implants, to lifts, to reductions. The tummy tuck removes the extra skin and stretch marks, as well as tightening the abdominal muscles beneath. Patients should plan on taking ten days to two weeks off from work while recovering from this procedure.
I want larger breasts, but I’m afraid of looking like a porn star.
Most women looking to undergo breast enhancement mention this type of fear during the initial consultation.
In actuality prospective enhancement patients are more likely to state what they don't want their breasts to look like, than what they do want them to look like. This apprehension is probably because, we humans, notice extreme examples of Plastic Surgery more often than more subtle examples. As such, we begin to feel that these examples are the norm among enhancement patients, and we fear that by becoming a patient our Plastic Surgeon will want to make us too large.
Nothing could be further from the truth. The majority of mainstream Board Certified Plastic Surgeons aim to give patients a natural look, with the patients concerns at the forefront of their surgical planning. However because these post op patients aren't as easy to notice, even though they far outnumber the DD group, people tend to think breast enhancement equals large breasts.
Almost every Plastic Surgeon has a system to determine what the patient has in mind in terms of size. Steps are taken during the consultation, and any subsequent office visits, to size the patient to ensure a predictable surgical result that the patient will be happy with.
As always, make sure your breast enhancement surgery is being performed by a Diplomat of the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
