Meet Dr. Gargano

Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon, New York

Dr. Francesco Gargano is one of the few plastic surgeons in the world ever to be certified in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery by both the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and the European Board of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (EBOPRAS). Having trained extensively around the world in the highest accredited institutions from the top international surgeons, Dr. Gargano has learned from the very best. This elite ranking and his numerous international certifications distinguish him in a class by himself.

He has committed his career to excellence and improving Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery results. His unsurpassed attention to individualized patient care combined with his vast knowledge and superior techniques set him apart as a plastic surgeon. Dr. Gargano has pioneered the Yin-Yang technique for breast reduction, mastopexy and augmentation mastopexy that achieves ideal breast shape and stable results over time.

After having met Mother Teresa decades ago, befriending her and ultimately caring for her later in life, Dr. Gargano was encouraged by her to become a surgeon to help people all over the world. He has dedicated his life to serving others and continually sharpening his skills and practice. Constantly embarking on charitable missions globally for organizations including Operation Smile, Dr. Gargano has always treated those less fortunate in need of critical surgeries. His goodwill extends to treating patients in dire financial circumstances or as a result of being turned away by other surgeons due to their complicated conditions.

The rhytidectomy, more commonly known as a facelift, is a surgical procedure created to turn back the clock on the visual signs of early aging, uncovering a youthful appearance.


Closed rhinoplasty or the endonasal approach is the preferred method by Dr. Gargano because it does not leave scars on the columella and the elasticity of the nasal tip is preserved.

Body Contouring

Abdominoplasty is a procedure to reshape the excess skin and subcutaneous tissues of the abdomen. Liposuction is a technique to remove the excess localized fat.

Breast Reduction & Mastopexy

Dr. Gargano is the inventor and pioneer of this new breast reduction technique. He has performed almost one thousand cases so far. The Yin-Yang technique reduces breast size and gives natural and long-lasting results.


Blepharoplasty can correct the sagging of the upper eyelids and the bags of the lower ones, characteristics that make us look older and more tired than we are.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation for a woman improves symmetry and improves the natural contour and shape of the chest.
