Dr. Andrew Kornstein’s Aesthetic Surgery Practice Sees an Increase in Consultations for Elective Mastectomies and Breast Reconstruction Surgeries
Date:5/30/2013

New York City, NY (PRWEB) May 30, 2013

New York City plastic surgeon, Dr. Andrew Kornstein is a board certified plastic surgeon practicing cosmetic and reconstructive surgery in Manhattan for over 20 years. As a breast specialist he has had a ring side seat studying and applying the latest procedures in both enhancement and reconstruction. “Angelina Jolie announced her decision to have a double mastectomy as a preventative measure against breast cancer after testing positive for the BRCA1 gene bringing her risk to a daunting 87%. The surgery from which Jolie has now recovered reduces her chances to 5%. From a physician’s point of view this was not only a bold and courageous choice, but a smart and pragmatic one,” says Dr. Kornstein.

While Dr. Kornstein is not Jolie’s plastic surgeon, nor does he know the details of her surgery, he is very familiar with the newest option available to women—single stage skin and nipple sparing mastectomy. Whether a woman finds herself at high risk, or has actually been diagnosed with cancer, this procedure has influenced some fortunate women who are made aware of the facts to regain their health and retain their appearance. Kornstein seizes every opportunity to alert the public because of the prevalence of misinformation. “Many women are under the mistaken impression that a mastectomy is a major surgery with an extended recovery that spells the end to one’s self-esteem and femininity. This is no longer the case,” says Dr. Kornstein.

Former patient, Isabel Stoltzman is testimony to that fact. Having been diagnosed with a small cancer, stage 1 seven years ago, Stoltzman
