Ary Krau MD, FACS
About the Practice
In practice since 1995, Dr. Krau and his staff are committed to taking patient care to a whole new level of personal service from the initial consultation all the way through post operative visits.
Dr. Krau says he has performed thousands of breast augmentation surgeries. However, when it comes to breast lifts, he says his specific technique leaves patients with LESS SCARRING AND A BETTER SHAPE. "While the traditional breast lift is done with an anchor incision, the technique I use, a vertical mammaplasty, does not require that long horizontal incision," says Dr. Krau. "Not only do patients have one less scar, but the shape of the breast is better and the longevity of the lift is longer." Dr. Krau explains that, TRADITIONALLY, SURGEONS HAVE RELIED ON THE SKIN to reshape and support the breast. However, he adds, we recognized over the years that the skin is a very poor structure for breast support. "If you rely on the skin and put too much tension on it, it will stretch and you will be back to square one," says Dr. Krau. "The vertical technique relies on the internal structure of the breast or FASCIAL FRAMEWORK for support. "That, we know, does have strength and does hold, leaving little tension on the skin itself, less scarring and faster healing."

A former reconstructive surgery instructor at the University of Miami, Dr. Krau favors intricate procedures such as rhinoplasty. "Most plastic surgeons consider this the most difficult type of surgery," says Dr. Krau. "It's an operation where you’re dealing with fractions of millimeters.
You have to be meticulous and have a feel for what you’re doing." His attention to detail, personal approach and closely knit office staff has South Floridians and others flocking to his practice. "Our practice has grown dramatically because our patients recommend us to their family and friends."

Plastic surgery financing makes procedures affordable to those who might otherwise not consider surgery an option. Because most cosmetic surgery procedures are not covered by health insurance, plastic surgery financing is often the only means by which patients can afford the more expensive procedures. Many plastic surgery financing alternatives are available, from installment plans arranged through the doctor's office to credit from outside sources. By shopping around, patients should be able to find the best plastic surgery financing for their specific needs and financial situation.
Dr. Krau accepts VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS, and most major credit cards.
