CAROLINE A. GLICKSMAN MD
For over two decades, the focus of Dr. Caroline Glicksman’s New Jersey plastic surgery practice has been women’s breast health. In the late 1990′s, Dr. Glicksman fought to mandate insurance coverage for breast reconstruction, and for 15 years worked nationally with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), as well as the manufacturers of breast implants, to bring safe gel implants back to the United States.
As a clinical investigator, she is one of a handful of clinical investigators nationwide who received training in 2005 on the use of the newest shaped silicone breast implants, sometimes called, “Gummy Bear” breast implants. As an investigator for five breast implant studies, her collected data is reviewed and submitted for publication. In addition, she has worked with two breast implant manufacturers to develop breast augmentation teaching materials for plastic surgeons who are not familiar with the newest generation of highly cohesive gel breast implants.
Dr. Glicksman’s commitment to all breast augmentation patients means that each and every patient is assured long-term follow-up. No breast implant patient is ever discharged, and even when a patient moves out of New Jersey, they are offered yearly follow-up exams for their breast implants. Only by following patients over the years can a surgeon improve their outcomes.
Honesty, warmth and experience are the foundations of Dr. Glicksman’s New Jersey plastic surgery practice. As a child of a radiation oncologist and an ER nurse, she grew up with an understanding of both the science and art of medicine. As a wife, and a mother of four teenagers, she has a unique connection with patients that only a woman and mother can provide.
Dr. Glicksman’s practice is based on the philosophy that an educated patient will make better, safer decisions, and she personally spends a great deal of time with every patient. She believes consultations should be informative, pleasant, and without pressure to schedule a procedure.
