Before & After Photos
Patient DescriptionA | 26 YEAR-OLD | FEMALE | AFRICAN AMERICAN | NEW YORK, USA
A is a 26 year old lady who suffered constant shoulder and neck strain from the large breasts she was given with. These large pendulous breasts not only caused periodic rashes underneath but also prevented her from finding clothes she wanted to wear. Most of her bra had to be custom-made and she complained the lack of selection and design of those bras.
When she came for consultation, we discussed the size she wanted and the placement of incision and the likely course of recovery. Having done much homework in the past, she asked many good questions regarding details like reduction of areolar size, amount of weight she would like to lose, and the new cup size she would like to be. She signed up for surgery at her first consultation and had a vertical pattern breast reduction. She went home the same day after surgery and was thrilled with her results. On follow up visits, she no longer feels the burden of her heavy breasts, her nipples no longer point down and she is in love with the projection!
What Was Done?
I’ve always had pretty large breast since middle school and they always made me feel uncomfortable. Eventually I started to grow into them, but during college I gained a significant amount of weight and they doubled. I was probably a 36C in high school and jumped to a 36DD after. While everyone said I should be thankful, I didn’t feel that way at all. It was difficult to wear certain shirts, dress and buy coats. I ended up losing about 20lbs and my breast size decreased to a 36D, but I had a ridiculous amount of loose skin and my breast sagged really bad. I started looking into breast lifts and reductions around 22 or 23 years of age and finally, at 26, I found the right doctor at Lenox Hill for a reasonable quote. I’ve had over four consultations and Lenox Hill’s Dr. Lao is probably one of the best surgeons I’ve met. He made me feel so confident and comfortable and he took his time with me. Any questions I had or information I needed, he provided. My surgery was on Friday, but I’m already pleased with my results. No one’s breasts are perfect, but he truly worked magic!

I feel very blessed and fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet such a talented young Doctor. I am 57 year old female. In December 2014, I had a facial procedure done. My eyelids top & bottom and face was lifted. I am 100% satisfied with the results. People see me and they say I look 10 years younger. My confidence level is off the charts. I can’t say enough about Dr. William Lao. He was kind, considerate, compassionate and caring. We had open communication through emails & telephone calls. I felt very comfortable with Dr. Lao, considering I interviewed 8 different plastic surgeons. Dr. Lao, is a graduate of Johns Hopkins Medical School which is one of the finest institutions in the world. Dr. Lao I will be forever grateful. Thank you.

I have uneven eyelids result from a previous double eyelid surgery years ago. One day I decided to have it corrected. Prior to meeting with Dr. Lao, I was on the verge of giving up the idea of surgery since the first Doctor I saw told me that my situation is not treatable. Consultation (which is free) with Dr. Lao was easy and pleasant. Dr. Lao told me that my problem can be easily solved with minimum invasive suture technic. That is exactly what I had hoped for!! As a plastic surgeon, I think Dr. Lao possesses a great deal of aesthetic sense, as well as good medical skills. At the meeting, he pointed out that my upper eyelids are sunken, a fat grafting procedure would enhance my appearance, so we decided to have both procedures done at the same time. I am so glad I did it, because the surgery had transformed my eyes. A couple of weeks after the surgery, the eyes looking natural, the result is beyond anything I had expected. I love my new eyes! This entire process is so easy. I am so grateful!

Dr. Lao’s attention to my hopes for an improved appearance resulted in just the outcomes I desired. I asked for a forehead lift which he executed beautifully. At his suggestion, I also received an eyelid enhancement wherein the area was refreshed with fat from my abdomen to create a more youthful appearance. The results are amazing.
Further, he went above and beyond when I hit a snag in arranging for post procedural care and helped me arrange for a home attendant. His care was thorough, thoughtful and sensitive to my individual needs. I highly recommend his services.
