A majority of men and women have one or more areas of their body they wish to improve. Diet and exercise can help you tone muscles and lose weight, but won’t address sagging skin, and many still struggle with stubborn fat. Our cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Basil Pakeman, is passionate about providing natural, attractive and elegant results to our patients in NYC, Manhattan and worldwide. At Manhattan Surgical Care, we can help you achieve the body, breasts, face or skin you’ve always wanted.

We provide a variety of cosmetic surgery services which address nearly all aesthetic concerns from head to toe.

The Brazilian Butt Lift uses your own fat from an area of excess to give natural butt augmentation.

Facial Cosmetic Surgery
Aging takes its toll on your face, but there are other reasons men and women often want to have facial cosmetic surgery such as to reduce scarring from acne or injury and to correct the size or shape of certain areas of your face. Some cosmetic surgeries we provide can address health concerns, for example, drooping eyelids that impede on your vision.
Dr. Pakeman puts a heavy emphasis on cosmetic oculofacial surgery, which requires extensive experience and precision to deliver consistent, remarkable results. Oculofacial surgeries typically involve an eyelid lift (blepharoplasty) that corrects sagging eyelids and under-eye bags. Dr. Pakeman is also a board-certified ophthalmologist which gives him a rare advantage and understanding of both cosmetic surgery and the anatomy of the eye. Asian eyelid surgery is a popular procedure we provide that forms an eyelid crease for men and women of Asian descent who have a single eyelid.
There are several types of face procedures we offer such as:
- Facial Fat Grafting
- Midface Lift
- Brow Lift
- Quick Lift
- Chin and Neck Lift
- Facial Scar Revision
- Contour Threads
- Buccal Fat Pad Removal
Buccal Fat Pad Removal is an emerging popular procedure that addresses what’s often called “chipmunk cheeks,” or fullness in the cheeks. This cosmetic surgery removes all or some of the fat pockets inside your cheeks. These fat pockets are called buccal fat pads and typically thin as you age or after a woman has had children.
Our cosmetic surgeon believes every patient is unique, and your facial procedure will be customized to suit your individual needs and aesthetic goals.
Body Contouring Procedures
Men and women of all ages struggle with areas of their body that retain unwanted fat or a disproportionate figure. This happens for many reasons from age to genetics to pregnancy. The traditional method of diet and exercise may not give you the full results you want and achieving your desired figure becomes harder with age. Dr. Pakeman provides body contouring options to help you reach your goals and improve your appearance.
Liposuction is one of the most common cosmetic surgeries in America. More than 200,000 lipo procedures were performed in 2016. Traditional liposuction is just one of the options available to our patients at our Manhattan office. Other lipo procedures we offer include:
- SmartLipo™: Laser-assisted liposuction liquefies fat cells, making them easier to remove and uses heat to stimulate skin tightening.
- VASER Lipo™: Ultrasound-assisted liposuction uses high-frequency energy to disrupt and melt fat cells using the VASER probe, also making fat deposits easier to remove.
- Tumescent Liposuction: Tumescent fluid is injected into the area where you’re having liposuction. This fluid has a local anesthetic in it and causes fat cells to swell and become firm and easier to remove via cannula.
- Power Liposuction: A vibrating instrument is used for power-assisted lipo to rupture fat cells, which makes fat removal faster and easier.
- LipoDissolve™: A non-surgical procedure that involves microinjections into the area of unwanted fat (typically the jowls, upper arms, thighs and love handles), which causes fat deposits to dissolve and gives you the face or body contour you’re looking for.
Mini Liposuction is another option available for our patients, which involves removing fat from smaller areas such as your chin, elbows, bra area and knees. There are other body procedures such as Cellulaze™ and mole removal available at our Manhattan office as well.
Ethnic Cosmetic Surgery
Ethnic cosmetic procedures are not performed to Westernize your features, but rather to enhance your looks based on your goals and designed to flatter your face, body and other qualities. Your attributes are unique to you and shouldn’t be lost to create a cookie-cutter appearance. Dr. Pakeman has many years of experience and has studied the human form in depth. He understands the importance of improving your looks to give you the results you want while maintaining your cultural beauty and has worked with patients of diverse ethnicities.
Some of the ethnic cosmetic surgeries we offer include:
- Asian eyelid surgery
- Butt Enhancement
Dr. Pakeman is sought by patients from across the world for his surgical skill and ability to tailor results to meet individual goals.
Male Cosmetic Surgery
Many men are choosing cosmetic surgery to improve their looks and reduce signs of aging. One of the most common procedures is liposuction to treat gynecomastia. This condition causes men to develop excess breast tissue or fat deposits in one breast or both. Gynecomastia can present in adolescent boys and men of all ages. While the symptoms may subside for some, many men struggle with overdeveloped breasts, which may be caused by weight gain, medication use, hormonal changes and certain health conditions. Tumescent liposuction is often the type of lipo used to treat gynecomastia.
Dr. Pakeman and our team of medical professionals understand the impact gynecomastia can have on your quality of life and can help you determine if cosmetic surgery is the right treatment for you.
