Our blog is dedicated to those who would like to learn more about the latest news in surgical and non-invasive cosmetic procedures. At New Look New Life, we try to provide real-time information about a rapidly evolving field of plastic and cosmetic surgery.
If you’re looking to trim your stomach fat, pinch your waist, or otherwise enhance your body contour as we move into the new year, you’ve probably looked into cosmetic surgery. Two procedures that people are often confused about are tummy tuck and liposuction. It can be difficult to know which procedure you need, as on the surface they perform the same task of reducing fat in order to create a better body shape.
Breast augmentation is the single most popular plastic surgery procedure in America. It can help improve the size and shape of your breasts, creating a more shapely figure that is nicely symmetrical and well-proportioned.
Typically, breast augmentation does not involve the nipples. However, many women are bothered by inverted nipples. If you have nipples that dip inwards at the center, we can perform inverted nipple surgery to correct the shape of your nipples at the same time as your breast augmentation.
If you are ready to take the first step towards the beautiful, feminine figure you’ve always wanted, contact NYC plastic surgeons Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega at New Look New Life by calling 646-559-2854 today.
Do You Have Inverted Nipples?
Inverted nipples are normal, with up to 10% of women having at least one inverted nipple. If you’ve always had inverted nipples, it’s nothing to worry about medically, although it might cause self-consciousness or embarrassment in situations where others may see your nipples. However, if you notice a change from a regular nipple to an inverted nipple, see a doctor just in case.
Inverted nipples are either flat against the areola, or sink inwards instead of protruding outwards. There are different grades of nipple inversion, progressing from mild to severe. During your consultation, we can assess your nipples and let you know if you are a candidate for surgery to correct your inversion.
Why Have Inverted Nipple Surgery with Breast Augmentation?
Nipple correction surgery is a fairly simple procedure with immediately visible results and very little downtime. If you are planning to have breast augmentation surgery and want to correct your nipples at the same time, it makes sense to have both procedures done at once.
Benefits of breast augmentation with nipple correction surgery include:
- Larger yet still natural looking breasts
- Beautifully erect nipples that complement your new breasts
- Symmetrical, nicely shaped breasts with symmetrical, nicely shaped nipples
Beautiful breasts deserve beautiful nipples, and our patients find that nipple correction surgery with their breast augmentation lifts their self-confidence and enhances their overall quality of life. Most patients with inverted nipples who opt for corrective surgery are very satisfied with their decision.
Cost of Nipple Correction Surgery with Breast Augmentation
The cost of your inverted nipple surgery with breast augmentation will vary depending on a number of factors, including the degree of your nipple inversion and the complexity of your procedure. We will be happy to provide you an exact quote during your consultation.
We know that cosmetic surgery can be a large expense, so we provide financing plans to help each of our patients fit their surgery into their budget. We accept CareCredit and United Medical Credit, both of which provide flexible options with low to no APR plans. We can help you decide on the plan that works best with your budget and lifestyle, and help you apply if needed.

By Board Certified Cosmetic Surgeon, Victoria Karlinsky, MD
With so much misinformation being written about liposuction and body sculpting in general, Dr. Victoria Karlinsky decided it was time to provide the FACTS for those considering body sculpting.
Here it goes:
MYTH #1: Liposuction is a great tool for weight loss
THE FACT: Liposuction is not designed for weight loss. Rather it is intended to re-contour areas of your body where fat is resistant to diet or exercise.
MYTH #2: Once you have liposuction, the fat does not return
Liposuction can be performed anywhere on the body. The most popular areas include the arms, stomach, back, and thighs.
THE FACT: If you overeat, fat will return but it will be distributed differently and, most likely, stored in other areas of your body. My advice to patients is to protect your investment in improving how you look and feel…and eat wisely to maintain your beautiful new figure.
MYTH #3: Liposuction is painful
THE FACT: While there may be some mild discomfort after your treatment, we perform the most advanced and modern-day liposuction at New Look New Life Cosmetic Surgical Arts, which is not painful. In fact, we offer “Lunchtime Lipo” when only one area is being treated where patients can go right back to work. With treatment of multiple areas, you can resume your normal activities after a few days.
MYTH #4: After liposuction, you’ll have to wear a compression garment for three to six months
THE FACT: Liposuction used to require long-term compression garments but not anymore! Today, I recommend patients wear a compression garment for one-week day-and-night and another week part-time and then taper off.
MYTH #5: All liposuction requires general anesthesia
THE FACT: When one or two areas are being treated, local anesthesia is recommended. For multiple areas, I do use general anesthesia.
MYTH #6: Liposuction causes lumpy or puckered skin irregularities
THE FACT: Puckering is rare. The key is for the provider to not be overly aggressive and to remove all the fat in an area completely. This takes training, artistry, and experience. A skilled professional will leave the skin smooth and beautiful.
MYTH #7: Liposuction is dangerous
THE FACT: Of course, any surgical procedure carries certain risks but modern-day liposuction is extremely safe in the hands of a trained professional.
MYTH #8: Non-surgical fat reduction treatments are just as effective as liposuction
THE FACT: I have chosen liposuction as my body sculpting method of choice. While non-surgical fat reduction methods certainly have their pluses, they often require multiple treatments whereas liposuction only requires one treatment per area. Liposuction also has a more predictable outcome since it can more specifically target exactly what areas of fat will be removed.
