Meet Dr. Robert M. Freund

Dr. Freund Headshot2Dr Freund is a NYC plastic surgeon with a thriving Manhattan practice that has helped thousands of patients look and feel their very best.  He is the inventor of the teardrop breast lift, a procedure that lifts the nipple, enlarges the breast, and gives it a more natural shape. With minimal scarring and long-lasting results, the teardrop lift is an excellent alternative for some patients looking for minimal scarring and aesthetically pleasing, durable results.

He is uniquely skilled to perform secondary rhinoplasty, the complex operation that fixes a nose that has already had cosmetic nasal surgery. His artful approaches to brow lifts, eye lifts, and other procedures on the face and neck led New York magazine to name him “One of New York’s leading plastic surgeons” in 2003.

Dr. Freund has been in private practice in New York City for 17 years and is a certified plastic surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. In 2003 he won the Best Scientific Exhibit Award from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons for his work on the lateral brow lift, which uses small incisions, does not raise the hairline, and maintains a natural, arched eyebrow.

Dr. Freund is a graduate of Brown University and Cornell University Medical School.


As an innovator and researcher…

Dr. Freund has developed the Viafill technique of fat transfer which restores facial volume lost by age, which is considered the best new way to slow the aging process. In the past, fat transfer methods have been shown to be inconsistent. But new studies have shown that Dr. Freund’s technique may provide as many as 500% more live cells than other methods and that this can lead to more consistent results. This improved method eliminates the need to overfill fat, leading to better results that appear more quickly.
