• BREAST AUGMENTATION
Breast augmentation has given women throughout Miami and Florida added confidence in their appearance. Breast Augmentation is one of the most frequently performed procedures in the United States today. Breast implants enhance the size and shape of the breast by adding firmness and fullness. Breast augmentation can be used to enhance body symmetry and self-image primarily or following pregnancy. Breast implants can also be used for correcting asymmetry and for reconstructive purposes. We offer complimentary breast augmentation consultations at our Miami office.

Breast Augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the United States today. Breast implants enhance the size and shape of the breasts adding firmness and fullness while improving body image and self esteem. Breast Augmentation can be performed to make smaller breasts appear larger, balance breasts that are asymmetrical, or restore fullness that has diminished with age or as a result of pregnancy. Breast Implants can also be used for reconstructive purposes.
• BREAST AUGMENTATION CORRECTION
Breast augmentation surgery is more popular than ever, with the vast majority of patients thrilled with their new proportions. There are however many patients that require additional surgery to correct problems with breast implants, to exchange outdated silicone gel implants, or simply to change to different size implants.
• BREAST LIFT
An internationally renowned surgeon, Dr. Sam Gershenbaum is known throughout Florida for his outstanding ability to create beautiful, shapely breasts. At his practice just north of Miami, he performs breast lift surgery for discriminating patients. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to perform the same role as a properly fitting bra, namely supporting the breast in an uplifted position – revealing more fullness, shape, and cleavage. A breast lift generally removes only excess and loose skin, as compared to breast reduction, which reduces the amount of actual breast tissue besides skin reduction.
Many women from the Miami area have choosen to undergo breast lift, particularly those whose breast shape and contour does not fit their self-image. Body image is an important part of feeling good, desirable, and normal. Most women compare themselves to a cultural idea of beauty.
Commonly, women with sagging breasts and breasts with loose, stretched skin are dissatisfied with their physical appearance. These changes can be a result of genetics, pregnancy, weight loss, and aging or any combination thereof.
• BREAST REDUCTION
Miami breast reduction surgeon, Dr. Sam Gershenbaum combines modern technology with vast experience to offer the best breast reduction surgery in Florida.
For many women, the size, shape, and contour of their breasts do not fit their self-image. Women with unusually large, sagging, or uneven breasts are dissatisfied with their physical appearance. Some experience pain and discomfort due to the weight of their breasts and the pressure of bra straps on their shoulders and neck. Excessively large breasts can affect posture, limit physical activity and exercise, and make it difficult to find properly fitting clothes. Ungainly stares and rude comments may further promote a feeling of self-consciousness, limiting confidence and adding psychological strain to the physical symptoms.
• SCARLESS BREAST REDUCTION
Available at the Aventura Center in Miami, Florida, "scarless" breast reduction is yet another modality selected to reduce breast size with virtually no visible scars. Standard breast reduction techniques can produce dramatic changes in size and shape; however, there are usually obvious and noticeable scars. Many likely candidates for breast reduction have avoided the procedure because of these scars. With the use of this relatively new liposculpture-only breast reduction, a virtually "scarless" procedure is available.
Liposculpture-only breast reduction surgery uses the tumescent liposuction technique where saline mixed with epinephrine (a medication to constrict blood vessels) is infiltrated throughout the breasts. Several small incisions (as used in standard liposuction) are hidden in the crease under the breast, in the armpit, and on the border of the areola. Liposculpture then reduces the breasts in the deep, middle, and superficial layers allowing a reduced breast size and a modest elevation of the nipple level.
• ABDOMINOPLASTY (TUMMY TUCK)
In Miami, Florida, it is especially important to look your best. Abdominoplasty or "Tummy Tuck" is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the abdomen, as well as tighten the underlying musculature. An abdominoplasty from our Miami, Florida center will tighten stretched, wrinkled skin, creating a firmer, flatter abdomen and narrower waistline.
A protruding abdomen or an abdomen with loose, wrinkled, or hanging skin and fatty tissue causes distress to thousands of people. Weak abdominal muscles, weight fluctuations, pregnancy, and surgical scars can wreak havoc on our lower midsections. In many people, this area simply does not respond to diet and exercise.
Abdominoplasty is not, however, a substitute for weight reduction, and it is not meant as a treatment for obesity. The ideal candidate for an abdominoplasty is of relatively normal weight with weak abdominal muscles and excess skin and fat of the lower abdomen. Loss of skin elasticity, which frequently occurs with slight obesity in older patients, or extreme fluctuations in weight, can result in loose, stretched, hanging skin, and fat in the lower abdomen. These conditions can be markedly improved with this procedure. If stretch marks are a problem, only the stretch marks on the excess or hanging skin will be removed. Abdominal wall hernias and/or abdominal scars can sometimes be complicating factors that may also be corrected
during abdominoplasty surgery.
At the Aventura Center in Miami, liposuction brings contour and youthfulness to many areas of the body and face. Dr. Sam Gershenbaum utilizes tumescent liposuction with many other procedures, including facelift and abdominoplasty, performed at our cosmetic surgery center in Miami, Florida. Liposuction, also known as liposculpture, can be used for the removal of large or small amounts of fat to add shape and contour to your body, taking years off your appearance, and helping you live a healthy lifestyle.+ Liposuction is an approach to body contouring that removes excess subcutaneous fat through tiny incisions. Liposuction can be used alone or in combination with other procedures for cosmetic, posttraumatic, or reconstructive surgery. The distribution of fat is determined by three factors - heredity, metabolism and diet. Heredity determines the location and number of individual fat cells, which are generally fixed and unchanged after puberty. Your metabolism and diet may increase or decrease the amount of fat in each cell, however will not affect the total number of fat cells or their distribution.
• BUTTOCK IMPLANTS
Many men and women are simply dissatisfied with the size, shape and contour of their buttocks.
Underprojected, flat and/or sagging buttocks do not fit their ideal self-image. Body-image is an important part of feeling good, desirable and confident. For many this surgical procedure can make a dramatic impact in the quest for the body beautiful.
Buttock implants, also known as gluteal augmentation, gluteal implants or gluteoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to add fullness and projection to the underprojected or flat buttock area. This procedure involves inserting a soft high grade, solid silicone implant into the muscular space of the buttock area. To the touch, it has the feeling and consistency of a flexed muscle. Unlike breast augmentation, after this procedure is properly completed and healed, there is no reason to require additional surgery in the future. These implants can be round or oval and come in a variety of sizes. A consultation and physical exam is needed to determine the appropriate size and shape for each individual.
• MALE PECTORAL IMPLANTS
Male chest enhancement, known as "pec" implants, is now more popular than ever. Increasing numbers of men are choosing to enhance their physique, body symmetry, and self-image with pectoral implants. This procedure can be performed to enhance an already shapely physique, or pectoral implants may be used for those who simply do not have the time or desire to spend countless hours at the gym.
Pectoral augmentation, commonly referred to as "pec" implants, is a surgical procedure designed to add fullness, size, and shape to the male chest. This procedure involves inserting a soft, high-grade, solid silicone implant into a space created under the pectoral muscles. To the touch, it has the feeling and consistency of a flexed muscle. Unlike female breast augmentation, after this procedure is properly completed and healed, there is no reason to require additional surgery in the future. Frequently, liposuction of the love handles, abdomen, waist and back or any combination thereof is performed to further enhance the overall shape and contour of the upper torso.
• CALF IMPLANTS
Many men and women are dissatisfied with the size and shape of their calves. Calf augmentation, or calf implants, is a surgical procedure that uses soft, solid silicone implants to increase the size and enhance the shape of the calves. Reasons for calf augmentation vary from cosmetic enhancement to reconstructive. Men and women body builders often use calf augmentation to enhance the fullness, shape and bulk of the calf muscles when exercise falls short on further development. Others choose calf implants to improve proportions, definitions and curves of the lower legs for simple muscular enhancement or to correct the appearance of thin and/or bowed legs. Calf implants can also be used to correct asymmetry in calf muscles from trauma or genetic birth deformities such as in polio, spina bifida and clubfoot.
• LABIOPLASTY / LABIO MINORA REDUCTION
Many women are unhappy with the size of their Labia Minora (inner vaginal lips) which may cause insecurity or embarrassment with a sexual partner, discomfort in tight fitting pants or swim wear or other hygienic problems. Women have became more aware of differences in genital appearance owing in large part to increasing publications of nudity in magazines and nude presentation in movies. When Labia Minora are enlarged or unequal in size, some women harbor feelings of deformity or being abnormal, with loss of self esteem. Most women do not desire the smaller inner vaginal lips to project much beyond the larger outer lips. Many women desire the smaller inner lips not to extend beyond the outer lips at all.
• VAGINAL REJUVENATION
Vaginal Rejuvenation is designed to increase and/or restore sexual gratification. Over time, the vaginal muscles can lose strength, tone, and most of all, control and support. The inside and outside dimensions can also increase. These changes can cause a decrease in sexual feeling and gratification. Vaginal rejuvenation is designed to correct the anatomic deformities, and thus increase and restore sexual pleasure for women (and men)!
Add looks to your years... A facelift can improve the most visible signs of aging by sculpting and tightening the deeper structures and foundation of the face and neck. During the natural aging process, the effects of gravity, sun exposure, weight fluctuations, smoking, heredity, and the daily stresses of life begin to reveal the passage of time in our faces. Facelift surgery can
bring youth back to your face. In youth, the face is firm and smooth due to good skin elasticity
and proper positioning of normal facial fat. During the aging process, skin elasticity and muscle tone weaken, and facial fat descends, causing prominent skin folds, deep creases between the nose and corner of the mouth. Jowls become prominent along with fat deposits and loose skin in the neck.
• BROW LIFT
Miami brow lift surgeon, Dr. Sam Gershenbaum, provides expertise in creating the youthful, more awake appearance that brow lift surgery offers. The contour and position of the skin, fat, muscles, and brow around the eyes is largely responsible for facial expression. Wrinkles and lines often first appear in the brow and forehead area along low positioned eyebrows and heavy lids, which all become more prominent as time goes on. Sun exposure, genetic influences, weight fluctuations, and smoking can be contributing factors that together produce a tired, older, and even sometimes a scowling appearance.
• EYELID SURGERY
At the Aventura Center for Cosmetic Surgery, located just north of Miami, eyelid surgery is one of our most highly requested, and most satisfying procedures. Dr. Sam Gershenbaum uses an advanced approach to this life-changing procedure, and has become known as a leader for eyelid surgery in the Miami region. Eyelid surgery at our center is performed only with the latest techniques and technology, because we understand that the eyes are responsible for an important part of facial expression; they project the feelings and emotions of happiness, sorrow, anger and fear. Many feel the eyes are the "windows to our soul." Yet, the eyes themselves are essentially expressionless structures. In actuality, it is the contour of the skin, muscle, fat, brow and lashes around the eyes that produce expression. Wrinkles, lines, loose skin and fatty bulges slowly develop and become more prominent as time goes on. Sun exposure, genetic predisposition, weight fluctuations and smoking can also be contributing factors that together produce a tired and older appearance.
Rhinoplasty, or nasal surgery, is popular among men and women who are dissatisfied with the size and/or shape of their nose. Being such a prominent feature, the size and shape of the nose may be the most defining characteristic of one's face. Dr. Samuel Gershenbaum performs rhinoplasty for both cosmetic and functional (breathing) indications at our facility in Miami, Florida.
Rhinoplasty surgery frequently involves the external appearance, as well as the internal structure and breathing apparatus.
• FACIAL IMPLANTS
Dr. Gershenbaum offers a wide range of facial implants to enhance facial features for Florida residents. Facial implants can be used alone, but are often incorporated with other facial cosmetic surgery procedures such as a facelift, rhinoplasty, brow lift, or eyelid surgery.
Facial implants add contour to the facial structure and create more attractive proportions. They are commonly used for the chin, jaw, and cheeks. Facial implant surgery is performed on an outpatient basis at our state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery center in Miami, Florida. A similar procedure is performed for most facial implants: a small incision is made (often inside the mouth) near the location of implant, the implant is inserted, and the incisions are sutured for healing. Normal activities may be resumedapproximately one week following surgery. Strenuous activity is not recommended for at least one month.
• LIP ENHANCEMENT
Lip enhancement, including lip augmentation with implants, can change the size and shape of your lips, increasing fullness and overall appearance and feel. With the use of safe injectables like Restylane®, collagen, and fat injections, Dr. Gershenbaum can give you the pouty, sexy lips you’ve always wanted. Lip enhancement with injectables must be repeated over time because the body will eventually absorb the substance injected. These non-surgical lip enhancements are convenient because you can return to your normal activities immediately. Lip augmentation is a popular, safe procedure that offers a permanent solution utilizing synthetic lip implants to
create full, sexy lips.
• OTOPLASTY - COSMETIC EAR SURGERY
Otoplasty cosmetic surgery, also referred to as ear shaping or ear pinning, can correct protruding or deformed ears for children and adults. Many parents choose to have their children’s ears pinned at an early age, usually between four and fourteen, to prevent ridicule during adolescence. However, many adults also request otoplasty to correct misshapen or oversized ears.
