Expertise in Breast Reconstruction
Dr. Lerman's approach to breast reconstruction relies on the aesthetic values of cosmetic surgery, while using the most advanced surgical procedures available. He is highly experienced in microvascular and perforator flap surgery, such as the DIEP flap. These advanced techniques transfer natural tissue to reconstruct the breast mound. In this way, Dr. Lerman can successfully recreate the shape, symmetry, and softness of a natural breast. His main goal for any breast reconstruction procedure is to make his patients feel whole again. Ultimately, breast reconstruction should allow a woman to feel as confident, if not more so, with how she looks and feels than before she underwent treatment for cancer.
Dr. Lerman works closely with a multidisciplinary team at Lenox Hill Hospital’s Institute for Comprehensive Breast Care to offer an impressive spectrum of procedures:
- Nipple-sparing mastectomy
- Natural tissue (autologous) reconstruction
- Single-stage breast implant reconstruction
- Preventative mastectomy
- Gummy bear (form stable) silicone implant reconstruction
- Breast-conserving (oncoplastic) surgery
- DIEP flap, PAP flap, GAP flap, and all other types of perforator flap techniques
Dr. Lerman is also highly trained in procedures to rejuvenate the face and body. He can bring together the best proven, state-of-the-art modalities to deliver results that meet each patient’s unique aesthetic ambitions. For example, he can perform a facelift or tummy tuck with the latest contouring techniques, utilizing fat grafts and ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Dr. Lerman also offers non-surgical therapies, such as laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and popular injectables like BOTOX® Cosmetic. With his meticulous eye for detail, he can recommend a procedure that complements your features, allowing your natural beauty to shine through.
