Cosmetic Breast and Body Surgery in NYC

Dr. Naidu specializes in helping women regain a more youthful, contoured body. Most of Dr. Naidu’s patients are strong, independent women whose bodies have changed due to aging, weight loss or childbirth. They are distressed by deflated breasts, sagging skin on their abdomen, or excess fat on their thighs. For these patients, plastic surgery is a decision to move forward in their lives and focus on themselves.

Dr. Naidu also works with women in NYC who are seeking breast reconstruction surgery. Whether the reconstruction is precipitated by a mastectomy or a congenital defect of the breast (such as tuberous breast deformity or Poland’s syndrome), Dr. Naidu supports patients throughout the reconstruction process.
