Our Experience

Profiles & Contours StaffAt Profiles & Contours we perform only plastic surgery in NYC. We are a practice of specialization, not generalization. When you enter our doors you will be in the company of other patients who are going through the same experience and in the hands of specialists. We are here for only one reason: to offer you the highest quality plastic surgery possible.

Many surgeons perform cosmetic surgery as a small part of their overall practice. For Dr. Erlich, cosmetic surgery is a full time concern. Our reputation and specialization have helped us create and maintain a busy plastic surgery center in New York City and another conveniently located in Connecticut for surgical consultations and aftercare. As with any aspect of life, the greater the experience, the greater one's proficiency and that's why Dr. Erlich is so experienced. Dr. Erlich is proficient, experienced and knowledgeable. A higher volume of procedures results in greater proficiency, expertise, and ability. In the past 25 years as a plastic surgeon in NYC, our director Dr. Mark Erlich has performed over 10,000 cosmetic procedures.

No matter what procedure you're interested in, you can be sure that we have probably performed it hundreds, if not thousands, of times. Plus, our cosmetic plastic surgeon in NYC is board certified and is affiliated with, and teaches at, some of New York's most prestigious hospitals and medical schools. Dr. Erlich has the credentials, the experience, the expertise, and the talent to give you the beautiful, natural-looking, results you want.

Our Professionalism

Certificate of AccreditationAt Profiles & Contours, our dedicated facility is certified by the prestigious
Joint Commission, and is specifically designed to make every plastic surgery procedure safer and more effective.

Our state-of-the-art computer imaging system can show you a full-color picture of what you can look like after your procedure. On a color screen, you can see before and after images of yourself and discuss with your surgeon the possibilities your surgery can offer. If you are considering cosmetic surgery, call our Connecticut or New York offices and ask about how computer imaging can be part of your consultation.

Dr. Mark A. Erlich, the founder and director of Profiles & Contours, was the first cosmetic surgeon in the United States to introduce computer imaging into the cosmetic surgery consultation. It is an essential part of your discussion and helps you understand what you can and cannot expect.

We individualize each patient's procedure. And, we take great pride in the natural-looking and beautiful results that follow. Our patients look natural, beautiful and healthy. And many report feeling more confident, self-assured — and happier.

Many of our patients travel from other states, even other countries, for procedures in our facility. For those patients we offer a beautiful and comfortable apartment in the same building as our facility (see photos, above) where patients recover under the care of our staff and receive post-operative visits from their surgeon. Limousine transportation can also be arranged for patients with special transportation needs.

Our Conscientious Care

From your initial consultation through your final post-operative visit, our professional staff will guide you every step of the way, answering your questions to assure your peace of mind. Consultations and aftercare can be scheduled at your convenience at our Connecticut or New York offices, but most surgeries are in New York City.

And rest assured that all of our patients are checked on the evening of surgery and are always provided with 24-hour on-call access.

Everyone from our receptionist to our anesthesiologist is a well-trained professional and a plastic surgery authority. Over the years, they've helped thousands of people just like you.

They are a big part of the reason why our patient satisfaction is so high.

From state-of-the-art surgical techniques and methodologies, to thorough consultations and follow-up care, we make sure that you receive the best care possible.

High Quality Surgery At Affordable Prices

Excited about the possibilities but concerned with the cost? Advancements and refinements in medical technologies have helped to keep the price of plastic surgery down — even while the sophistication and the quality have gone up.

At Profiles & Contours, we pride ourselves on offering the finest plastic surgery at affordable fees. One reason we are able to offer better fees is because we operate out of our own dedicated and fully certified ( AAAHC) plastic surgery centers.

We accept insurance in applicable cases and will, if you wish, contact your insurance company to find out whether your procedure will be covered.
