Breast Revision Surgery (and What We Do to Prevent It)

Complications from breast augmentation surgery are rare, but we do see them at the Plastic Surgery Group of New Jersey.

Neck Lift for a Younger, Sleeker Jawline and Neck

The team at the Plastic Surgery Group of New Jersey has frequently observed how the upper and lower face age at different paces.
