Dr. David J. Pincus
Tell us about your medical practice. What separates your practices from others in the same industry?
Pincus Plastic Surgery is a full service, state of the art surgery center located in Smithtown, New York. The surgery center is supported by the most innovative and current medical technology available. There are no other surgical centers in this area that are built with the same technology or support all of the specialties that I am trained in. In addition to my advanced medical education, I bring years of focused experience, diverse training and medical expertise to this practice. We specialize in breast augmentation, breast reduction, and body contouring procedures including tummy tucks, liposuction, Brazilian butt lifts and more.
We use the latest technology to analyze and treat our patients, including a state of the art imaging system called Crisalix. We use this advanced system to view 3D and 4D images to provide simulations for patients who may be undergoing various procedures including breast augmentation, body contouring, etc. It allows patients to see 3D simulated images of what they will look like after their surgery. We also use a cutting edge laser technology known as Fractora, a fractional skin treatment. Fractora is an advanced fractional radio-frequency treatment that provides anti-aging improvements on skin tone and texture resulting in a more radiant appearance.
In addition to offering consultations and treatments, our office is also a full service surgery center that allows patients to stay and recover overnight if necessary, in a fully staffed medical recovery room.
What are your specialties and what areas of plastic surgery do you focus on?
I specialize in plastic and reconstructive procedures for the face, breasts, and body for both men and women. I am fully licensed and trained in various cosmetic procedures including breast augmentations, breast reductions, tummy tucks, liposuction, Brazilian butt lifts, and other body contouring surgeries. I also specialize in breast implant revision surgery for patients who may not be completely satisfied with the results of their past breast augmentation procedures.
How did you decide to train in the medical field to specifically become a plastic surgeon?
I grew up on Long Island but attended college and medical school in Florida. I earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton and continued my education at the University of Miami, School of Medicine. After graduating medical school, I performed my general surgery residency at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida.
I have always been a science oriented person. I spent many of my clinical training years in the Miami area where plastic surgery and many body contouring procedures were popular and quite common. When I was in medical school, I witnessed how cosmetic surgeons were able to transform people not only physically – but mentally and emotionally. Their work really empowered their patients and the physical alterations to their bodies could actually alter their emotions and behavior in a positive way. It really amazed me and I wanted to help my patients in the same way.
Do you always consider the needs of each patient when deciding whether or not to perform surgery?
I am definitely selective regarding the patients I treat because I want to be sure that every procedure is safe, effective and the right choice for each patient. There are certain patients that I may not treat or perform surgery on because they are not healthy enough or physically or emotionally prepared for the alteration to their body.
Do you have a motto or professional slogan that you follow?
Empowering you through physical change.
