C.andrew SalzbergAssociate Professor | Tarrytown, New York
Dr. C. Andrew Salzberg is a New York Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who specializes in cosmetic surgery and breast surgery, including breast reconstruction. He is an Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery, and the Director of Integrated Plastic Surgery Services, at the Mount Sinai Health System in NYC and the Chief of Plastic Surgery at St. Johnâ€™s Riverside Hospital at Dobbs Ferry in Westchester. He also performs surgery at the Institute for Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery within the Hudson Valley Hospital Center and The Mt Sinai Hospital. Dr. Salzberg is best known as the pioneer of Direct to Implant and AlloDerm Breast Reconstruction. This type of breast reconstruction replaces the traditional Tissue Expander Method, which required two surgeries with in-office biweekly expansion for several weeks in between. In practice since 1987, his new, pioneered technique (2001) allows him to put in a permanent breast implant, with no need to expand or have a second surgery, because of his approach in using AlloDerm to act as coverage and support of the bottom portion of the implant.
