About My Practice

Which surgical advances are you excited about?

The surgical options for massive weight-loss patients are remarkable and continue to improve. After patients lose a tremendous amount of weight, and improve their health, they still have a significant amount of excess skin and laxity. The surgeries that can fix this problem have a large cosmetic component to them, and this is an area that continues to see great improvement. Post-bariatric surgery is most gratifying to me, as weight-loss patients are ecstatic about their wonderful cosmetic results. 

What is your most requested procedure?

A lot of requests for procedures are seasonal. In the fall and early winter I perform a large number of facial aesthetic procedures such as facelifts, rhinoplasties and necklifts. As we move into spring, and summer is nearing, patients tend to request body contouring procedures such as breast augmentation, abdominoplasty and liposuction. 

What is your philosophy?

My goal is to help my patients look and feel their best in the most natural way. It requires a certain level of thinking outside the box to attain maximum results. My consultations are lengthy because I want to fully understand what my patients desire, what is most important to them and how I can achieve their goals. I fully appreciate the importance of the decision to undergo surgery in a person’s life. 

How do you show patients you care post-treatment?

I am very meticulous in all of my work and especially in my post-op care. My patients see me very frequently as I monitor every aspect of their healing process and make sure their results are on target with what we expected.

A Minute With

  1. My most unique personality trait
    I care about my patients more than anything else in the world
  2. My favorite surgery to perform
    Rhinoplasty, at any age, improves confidence. This procedure not only changes the shape of a person’s nose and improves one’s look, but also greatly impacts selfesteem and quality of life
  3. When you know you’re ready for surgery
    If a trait begins to bother you and it impacts social decisions, clothing choices, or your overall quality of life, it is reasonable to meet with a plastic surgeon to discuss the issue
  4. Three words that best describe me
    Compassionate, patient, perfectionist
  5. What sets my practice apart
    When we developed the concept of Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC, the idea was to create a comprehensive center that offered a range of treatments from the least invasive to the most involved. We continue to add more options for patients in order to achieve the best results that bring out the natural beauty in everyone
  6. How i make the best first impression
    It starts with sitting and listening intently to a patient’s needs and envisioning what will bring them the greatest degree of happiness and satisfaction
  7. Most memorable patient reaction
    There are so many positive interactions with happy patients after surgery and several patients have reported that they met their spouses following plastic surgery
  8. How do you manage patient expectations?
    Using Vectra 3-D imaging and a fully-detailed consultation, I give patients a preview of the results they can expect to attain.
  9. What new services are you excited to offer?
    AccuTite, the smallest radio frequency-assisted liposuction device is an extremely effective minimally-invasive fat reduction option. By combining AccuTite with FaceTite, Morpheus8 and a multitude of new technologies, I am able to deeply penetrate skin and fat with pinpoint accuracy. This is extremely effective for those in need of a stronger, tighter jawline, neck and lower face, to combat the signs of aging or even to best enhance a rhinoplasty. This technology targets hard to reach areas such as the brows, periorbital and nasolabial folds, and the lower face and neck with precision, in order to create a smoother, tighter and
  10. What are your most requested procedures?
    Rhinoplasty, facelift, browlift, necklift, blepharoplasty, liposculpting, body contouring and breast surgeries.
  11. How do you employ a less-is-more philosophy?
    Aesthetics today affords so many options that it is often difficult for patients to find the right plan. By offering all of the possibilities, we can find the right one for you, allowing us to create the perfect plan to maximize results in the most expeditious manner
  12. How do you show patients you care?
    I, not an assistant, meet with and examine each of my patients at every milestone to ensure the desired outcome. My patients have my full attention.

FAQs

  1. I am in my mid 50's although I workout and am in good shape I wonder if I am too old to consider a butt enhancement
    What our experts say:

    Age alone is rarely used as a criteria today.  Overall health, skin laxity, skin quality and donor site quality are far more important than age when considering body contouring.  If you are interested in buttock enhancement then you should definitely visit with a board certified plastic surgeon to see if you are a candidate for surgery.

  2. I just has a tummy tuck and lipo done six weeks ago, I was wondering if i could get a brazilian but lift now or do i have to wait a certain amount of time?
    What our experts say:

    There is no set rule regarding  timing of surgery. It varies depending on the type of surgery.  Generally, though, waiting 3 months between procedures should be done.  I would recommend waiting at least 6 more weeks before considering surgery.  You should revisit this question in person with a board certified plastic surgeon. 

  3. If you workout a lot will you loss the fat that was just rearranged
    What our experts say:

    Where someone gains or loses fat is unpredictable.  That being said, if one loses considerable weight they will likely lose some volume everywhere….including the area that may have been enhanced with fat grafting.  Generally it is recommended for someone to reach their weight goal prior to undergoing surgery if at all possible. 

  4. Which surgical advances are you excited about?
    What our experts say:

    Hair restoration is another exciting surgical advancement that has come a long way from traditional hair transplant surgery. Conventional hair transplants required surgeons to remove an entire section of the scalp from the back of the head. The scalp extraction created a permanent scar and patients often reported a “tight” sensation post-op. Now, NeoGraft offers a no-stitches, no-incision option to regrow your natural hair. Patients are reporting seeing results as early as three months, which is a great advancement for the treatment of hair loss.
