Dr. Lee Ann M. Klausner’s passion and career training is focused on cosmetic and reconstructive issues involving the face and neck. Specializing in rhinoplasty, facelifts and eyelid surgery, she effectively combines her expertise in surgery with the artful use of the latest noninvasive and minimally invasive treatments to yield the most natural-looking results. What sets Dr. Klausner apart is her compassion and ability to connect with her patients, listen to their concerns and formulate a customized plan to address their anti-aging goals. “Patients generally want to look their best without losing the essence of who they are in the process,” says Dr. Klausner. Because of this, her approach centers around providing a variety of treatment options—from noninvasive to minimally invasive to surgical or a combination. This allows patients to make choices that best suit their needs and lifestyle. Her new state-of-the-art Park Avenue office, located near Lenox Hill Hospital, is designed for patients to feel relaxed and comfortable as their cosmetic needs are addressed.

About My Practice

What is unique about your treatment style?

In addition to being a board-certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, I am also a board-certified otolaryngology surgeon, and that is an advantage for my patients. I also demonstrate a commitment to excellence and keen attention to detail. It’s the little things, like where you place incisions and how you close them, that make a big difference.

How would you characterize your office environment?

Bright, clean, modern and uncluttered. It’s more spa-like than clinical looking, but it’s serious and professional, with an increased sense of privacy. Soothing colors and warm lighting make our patients feel calm and confident.

What are some of your most requested procedures?

In the surgical arena, it would be rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery and mini-facelifts.

About Me

Why did you become a plastic surgeon?

I realized in my medical rotations that I thought like a surgeon, and that I enjoyed problem solving. I love working with my hands, and the detail and artistry that comes with plastic surgery. I love that no two operations are the same. It’s also really meaningful to have such a great impact on people’s lives.

How would your patients describe you?

Patients have said that I am an artist because I help them look their best without looking like they’ve had work done. I’m often described as precise, thorough, knowledgeable, personable, patient, trustworthy, supportive and kind. As a doctor it is important to be equally caring and effective.

  1. What's the best way to ensure a natural-looking facelift?
    What our experts say:

    There are three major factors which can yield unnatural facelift results.  The first: incision placement.  Where the incisions are placed and how they are closed might create scars that are highly visible, don't heal favorably or change the natural hairline and/ or shape of the ear lobe of an individual.  Second, operations that pull too tightly on the mid-face may flatten the cheek and make an individual look different than they did prior to their facelift.  Third, an over operated neck- over aggressive fat removal under the chin and over aggressive pulling of neck skin over the jaw line can also yield an unnatural result.

  2. How can Ultherapy benefit cheek wrinkles?
    What our experts say:

    The great benefit of Ultherapy is that it can treat laxity at three levels: the SMAS, the deep level of skin and the more superficial skin where fine wrinkles are found.  Ultherapy delivers microfocused ultrasound energy to these precise levels and in the healing process new collagen is formed and the tissues contract. Cheek wrinkles are improved because of new collagen formation and a reduction of the laxity of the tissues around the wrinkle.   Ultherapy works below the skin surface and by consequence, there is little to no evidence that a patient has had an Ultherapy treatment (=no down time).
