NewBeauty Top Doctor Since 2019

Craig A. Baldenhofer

Plastic Surgeon
115 West 27th Street, Suite 1001, New York, NY, 11001
No two procedures are the same because no two patients are the same.


Patients of board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Craig A. Baldenhofer may come from different backgrounds and have varied aesthetic needs, but they all have one thing in common. They’ve found a surgeon who knows the advantages that come with a meticulous approach and a truly customized experience. “I’ve been practicing in New York City for more than eight years and what I’m most proud of about my boutique practice, is the way in which I’m able to give the amount of personal attention needed to each and every patient,” he says. “Because of this, they know I am available for them anytime.” Ensuring that he himself performs every aesthetic treatment, rather than a nurse or physician’s assistant, adds a personal touch that keeps his longtime clients coming back. “My career highlights are the thanks I get from patients who say I have transformed their lives.” The cherry on top for Dr. Baldenhofer is that most of his new injectable and breast surgery patients are referred from his existing happy patients.

A Minute With

  1. Why do you place a strong emphasis on body contouring?

    Tummy tucks and breast surgeries
    are my favorite procedures because
    patients see an immediate, dramatic
    result and are so grateful

  2. What is your approach to breast augmentation?

    I think it is important to draw the
    line between obviously done and
    totally natural-looking. There are
    fewer women requesting the buxom
    look and now more are seeking a
    subtler, more age-appropriate look.
    I believe smaller, more naturallooking
    implants have become
    increasingly popular

  3. Why do you employ a less-is-more philosophy?

    My personal aesthetic preference is
    for natural-appearing results. It’s easy
    to take a little more, but it is much
    more difficult try to put it back

  4. How do you provide the safest environment for your patients?

    Depending on their needs and
    health, I can offer my patients
    surgery in the hospital under
    general anesthesia with boardcertified
    anesthesiologists, in a
    hospital affiliated with an outpatient
    surgery center, under IV sedation
    in my AAAASF-certified operating
    room in my office, or simply in
    my procedure room under local

  5. What’s the best way to restore a post-pregnancy figure?

    The first step is to get to your ideal
    weight via diet and exercise, then
    you can identify what procedures
    would be best for you. Those may
    include a breast lift with or without
    implants, a mini or full tummy
    tuck and liposuction. Every patient
    is different and many may want to
    enhance their post-pregnancy body.
    A lot can be achieved through both
    addition and subtraction
