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 anesthesia
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

Philosophy

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.
