If you are looking for a breast revision specialists plastic surgeon in NYC look no further. After many years and 4 surgeries (breast augmentation and lift) and being stuck with less than desirable results, I decided that I had to re do my breasts one more time. After 4 prior surgeries (over decades) I certainly wasn’t looking forward to another surgery with wear and tear on my body, not to mention my savings! I made up my mind that this would be my last surgery, period, on my breasts! Researching for a doctor with the experience to do a redo. I found that most doctors can’t, or wont take on this kind of surgery, if they’re honest. With all my experience at least I felt I knew the right questions to ask, to sort out the type of physician I was seeking, during an initial appointment. I met with Dr. Schaffner and decided that he was the right combination of education, experience, direct and honest answers along with attention to detail. I also received the impression that he was a decent and caring person. It’s only 2 months after surgery and I’m very happy with the results. He’s extremely factitious in his work to the point of creating incisions that are virtually seamless (some redness that I’m sure will be gone in a few months). I highly recommend him for anyone seeking a highly skilled and compassionate plastic surgeon. ~ HealthGrades
