As a professional researcher, one patient knew that she had some work to do in order to find the best plastic surgeon to perform her breast augmentation. Women should only trust their bodies to the best, making sure they select someone with extensive experience and training. One way to be sure that your doctor has these qualifications is to make sure they are Board Certified. Other important factors are finding a doctor who will listen to your concerns, explain all of your options, and individualize your procedure so that it’s customized to your needs and lifestyle. This researcher turned patient shares her experience researching Board Certified plastic surgeons in NYC to find the right one for her personal breast augmentation.
“I did tons of research. Being in New York, we have the best of the best here, and I made sure that I found the best and after this experience, I’m confident that it was Dr. Rapaport.”
NYC Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, David P. Rapaport, studied medicine at Boston University and then transferred to Israel’s Tel Aviv University, where he earned his medical degree. He later did his plastic surgery training at the New York University’s Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, which is widely regarded as the nation’s top plastic and cosmetic surgery residency program. After gaining experience and pioneering work in endoscopic and minimal incision breast surgery in Florida, he moved back to New York City and opened his private cosmetic surgery practice in Manhattan, New York. Dr. Rapaport specializes in breast augmentation, liposuction, and coolsculpting. All of Dr. Rapaport’s procedures are performed on-site in his fully accredited office surgical suite on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, New York.
Now that she felt confident in choosing the best of the best out of the Board Certified plastic surgeons in NYC, this patient moved on to researching exactly what she wanted. Wanting to be informed and make the right choice for her body and lifestyle, this patient made sure to do her research on what type of implant to get as well.
“Going back to the research-that’s actually what I do for a living-I work at a research company. I did my homework on this, because I knew it was going to be a part of my body and I would have either chose something that had been on the market for a while or something that was innovative, brand new, state of the art technology, and I was very confident that [the IDEAL IMPLANT] was something that I would put into my body.”
Wanting the feel of a silicone gel implant without having to deal with the worry of a possible silent rupture and frequent MRI visits, she decided to go with the IDEAL IMPLANT. As a member of an exclusive group to now offer the IDEAL IMPLANT, Dr. Rapaport stood out amongst other Board Certified plastic surgeons in NYC. This patient had the peace of mind going into her surgery that the type of breast implant she chose has the lowest risk of rupture rate. She knows that if the implant does rupture, she will be able to tell right away, and the saline solution inside the implant will be harmlessly absorbed by her body. Because of its multi-layered shell structure, the IDEAL IMPLANT is known for keeping it’s natural looking shape and feel. With the IDEAL IMPLANT becoming more well known, women are starting to realize it is the obvious choice when considering types of breast implant.
Something this patient loved about Dr. Rapaport was that he did pioneering work in endoscopic incisions, meaning smaller incisions and even smaller scarring. She elected to have Dr. Rapaport perform an endoscopic incision in her armpit. Grateful that she chose this method, she explains:
“It’s very subtle, nobody ever notices and it feels so comfortable. I can’t even remember what it’s like not to have [implants] in.”
This patient trusted Dr. Rapaport because he was Board Certified and a breast augmentation specialist. She knows that the best and safest procedures are performed by doctors who have received the extra experience and education to become Board Certified plastic surgeons. In NYC it can be overwhelming to find someone you trust and feel comfortable going to. Just knowing that Dr. Rapaport was Board Certified made her decision that much easier. She felt comfortable asking him about the IDEAL IMPLANT and knew that he would address any questions she had as well as help her choose the proportional, natural looking size implant she desired.

This cutting-edge implant contours to the curves of the chest beautifully, effectively mimicking the appearance of natural breasts. In fact, because it is made of saline instead of silicone, it has a unique structure that controls movement and supports implant edges. The implant is made to minimize any sort of folding or winkling, creating instead a naturally curvaceous look women love.
“NYC Board Certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rapaport is one of only about 250 doctors nationwide that are offering the IDEAL IMPLANT today. Trained at Harvard and New York University, he is a skilled plastic surgeon with 25 years of experience in the field.

“Beyond the benefits of a natural look and feel, the IDEAL IMPLANT also comes backed by years of research and testing, contains no silicone gel or new materials and was approved by the FDA in 2014. What’s more, unlike silicone implants that can rupture silently, Ideal Implants are designed to reveal the rare case of a rupture immediately and easy, simply by looking in the mirror so patients never have to worry about unknown damage.”
