NY Plastic Surgeon Dr. Leonard Grossman
Dr. Grossman received his medical degree from New York Medical College in 1985. He went on to complete his internship and residency in General Surgery at Beth Israel Medical Center from 1985 to 1988. In 1995 Dr. Grossman completed his Fully Accredited Plastic Surgery Residency at Baylor and the Scott & White Memorial Hospital after the completion of his fellowship in Microsurgery at the Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx, NY in 1990 and Burns and Reconstruction fellowship at Jacobi Hospital in the Bronx, NY in 1991.
Since performing his first Liposuction under all local anesthesia in 1993, Dr. Grossman realized that the only way to get an ideal or “a near perfect” result in liposuction is to have the procedure done with the patient standing. Since that time, with the compliment of excellent intravenous and local anesthesia, Dr. Grossman’s patients do not have any discomfort, anxiety or unpleasant memories of the procedure.
In 1995 Dr. Grossman became the first American Plastic Surgeon to utilize Ultrasound Assisted Liposuction technology that allowed difficult areas on the body (backs and breasts in men and women) to achieve excellent results with minimal down time.
Dr. Grossman strives to help his patients achieve the best results and minimal setbacks, his technique has improved even more with the introduction of Power Assisted Liposuction and the use of extremely small cannulas, which are barely larger than a hospital needle. All of this allows patients, as a rule, to have minimal or no postoperative pain, practically no bruising at all with no need to wear compression garments. As the size of cannulas has been greatly reduced, so has the size of the scar, which has become practically invisible. Dr. Grossman’s patients return to work the next day most of the time, gym work outs are allowed in just three days and going to the beach with open water swimming is allowed in less than a week for the majority of his patients.
Dr. Grossman is one of the most experienced Plastic Surgeons in the world, when it comes to the Transumbilical Breast Augmentation (TUBA) technique, as he has been performing this Celebrity’ Choice for breast augmentation since 1996, offering this wonderful procedure to many of his patients seeking scarless breast enhancement surgery. With this procedure, the incision is placed within the confines of the navel, creating a better augmentation without the obvious scars anywhere near the breasts. Results and recovery are superior to the traditional breast augmentation surgery with by far fewer complications.
Dr. Grossman’s approach to facial rejuvenation through Stem Cell Fat Transfer or Grafting was considered to be radical in 1993 and in fact used to receive much criticism, yet in the last few years has been warmly embraced by the majority of plastic surgeons world-wide. Dr. Grossman does not believe that gravity has much to do with the aging process, but instead, it is the gradual or a sudden loss of volume that is responsible for the “deflation effect” of the aging process of the face. Using the patient’s own fat, Dr. Grossman adds volume in the areas of the face creating a younger, healthier looking face which resembles the way the patient looked when she or he were much younger. This procedure avoids the “wind tunnel face” that patients get after a traditional face lift. Dr. Grossman’s Fat Transfer Technique provides patients with a unique, yet permanent improvement in the face and body. Scarring is nonexistent, bruising is extremely rare and complications associated with a Face Lift are never seen.
This very same, special Stem Cell Fat Transfer Technique has allowed Dr. Grossman’s patients to have Breast Augmentation, Brazilian Buttocks Augmentations, Brazilian Butt Lift and Fill, as well as Calf Augmentations using cells that come from the patients’ own body. Results are extremely natural looking, permanent, scarless and usually painless.
Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty is so different when done by Dr. Grossman, that his patients do not require the use of drain tubes. Patients usually don’t experience postoperative pain and most can drive themselves in less than a week.
