Philosophy

There is a tremendous responsibility that comes with earning a patient’s trust. It starts with recommending the appropriate procedures that a patient needs to achieve his or her goals without pushing or selling anything, and continues with doing the best I can to meet and exceed the patient’s expectations. 

About My Practice:

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 is a useful beauty tip for our readers?

Remembering to exfoliate is key because our ability to turn over skin cells slows down as we age. 

What are some of your most requested procedures?

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

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 do you educate patients?

I take a holistic approach to educating and partnering with my patients. I use my listening skills to understand their motivations, and tools like computer imaging to draw realistic, potential results for the patient. I then recommend different treatment options that are within their comfort zone. Patients should feel empowered by this education, understand what to expect and know that they aren’t alone. It’s a true partnership to reach the set goal.

About Me:

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. 

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. 

Testimonials

Noticeable jaw and chin definition

After a few months, I remarked noticeable jaw definition and chin definition. It took time but improvements are very clear, dramatic and noticeable. A remarkable treatment and Dr. Klausner was gentle, very patient and took a great deal of time.

Couldn't have been happier with my care

Anonymous Patient

Both Lee and Melissa were great and couldn’t have done anything else to help make the procedure and aftercare better. The follow up calls and advice were also above and beyond what I expected. I couldn’t have been happier with my care.

Honest, realistic and very detailed

Anonymous Patient

I am very happy with how this process has gone. Dr. Klausner’s sensitive, more reserved approach made me and my mom feel more comfortable before, during and after the operation. Dr. Klausner is honest and realistic as well as very detailed–all qualities that have made me feel comfortable and calm. Above all, Dr. Klausner is a caring doctor and I’m very happy and fortunate to have her as my surgeon.

Natural and beautiful results

Susan R

Dr. Klausner is the most personable professional doctor I have ever met. She listens carefully and addresses my concerns each time I’ve been to see her. The results of her procedures are the most natural and beautiful. Her bedside manner is so reassuring.

For the past few years I’ve been a patient of Dr. Klausner’s. At first, I took baby steps: a skin regimen to help repair the sun damage, fillers for the naso-labial folds, a little Botox for the furrow between my eyebrows, Ult-therapy to help tighten the skin. It wasn’t long before friends were asking if I had “work” done - the improvement was that good. Recently Dr. Klausner performed an upper lid blepharoplasty and a mini-facelift. The result is spectacular and natural. It has been many years since I have felt this good looking in the mirror. Friends and neighbors do a double-take and then tell me how fabulous I look with the new hair-cut or ask if I lost weight. Ironically no one suspects that I had “work” done. There are many talented plastic surgeons in New York City. Dr. Klausner is not only a talented surgeon but she is committed to her patient’s total well being. She took the time to get to know me and understand my needs. She tailored the surgery to make me look the best that I could. She truly cares. I could not be happier.

Recommends what I need and what is best for me

Elizabeth M

Dr. Klausner recommends what I need, what is best for me and she does it herself. She also remembers what she has done with me and proceeds with a useful, effective regimen.

Effective and non-invasive treatments

Michelle S

Dr. Klausner answer my questions clearly and candidly. The procedures and treatments she recommended were effective and non-invasive. I am very pleased with the results.

Sharon C

Sharon C

I went to see Dr. Klausner when I turned 29 because I was a sun lover. I had uneven skin tone, the surface was not so smooth, and then I started developing freckles I never had. I had Clear and Brilliant laser done. During my consultation, Dr. Klausner was so attentive and answered all my questions and I felt so comfortable with her. Most doctors I have seen in the past rush through the visit and you get you so nervous that you forget to ask important questions. Dr. Klausner takes her time and is huge on patient education which I really value. Quality service and the best bedside manner. I also had Ultherapy done and her staff called the next day to check in on me! LOVE IT!

Nunzio

Nunzio

My eyelids were sagging making my vision impaired and when I checked into the airport I had to pay the extra luggage fee for the bags under my eyes. Dr. Klausner came highly recommended to me. During the consultation she patiently answered all my questions and made me feel completely confident in her aesthetic vision. Dr. Klausner performed the eyelift on me, instantly taking ten years off. my face. The procedure was painless and I only incurred minimal post procedural pain. The healing was remarkably quick. I felt comfortable showing my face in public, without sunglasses after one week. My main concern was appearing too tightly pulled. As a man, I really didn't want to look as if I had undergone plastic surgery.. My eyes look totally natural and no one would ever suspect that I had undergone any cosmetic surgery, yet everyone comments on how well I'm looking. My only regret is that I hadn't done it sooner. I would highly recommend this procedure for anyone who is unhappy with their aging eyes and if you're going to do it, go to the best, Dr. Klausner.

Fabulous procedure

G L

Ultheraphy is a fabulous procedure. It is quick with no down time and unbelievable results. My jawline and neck look ten years younger. I also think it depends who does the procedure. I have friends in Florida who are coming to New York specifically to see Dr. Klausner. Dr. Klaussner is unique. She is warm, caring, so down to earth that it is hard to believe that she is “The Doctor.” My face was devastated by a bacterial infection, in addition to volume loss due to aging. I trust her judgment completely. My son had not seen me in a year, his reaction was “Mom you look better than you did 10 years ago.” I feel like a different person. I now fly back from Florida to see her.

Dr. Klausner encourages a natural look

C K

Amazing! Dr. Klausner encourages a natural look, not a fake, statue look. Personable. Works with you to find something good for you. Tells you about new treatments coming out. Staff is amazing, responsive and confidential. I would refer her for sure.

Follow up was incredible

Lauren R

The follow up after the procedure was incredible. I was back in the office to get decongested almost every day, making me much more comfortable after the surgery. Dr. Klausner was always reachable if I needed her and was willing to fit me into her schedule if I needed to see her after my surgery.

Skin feels smooth and tight

Diane C

There are some immediate results and the rest starts to happen very slowly. The one day people start to tell you “Wow you never seem to age,” you look in the mirror and your skin feels smooth and tight, and you are not sure why. Then you remember that you had the procedure done a few months ago.

Fabulous and caring

G M

Fabulous and caring. Thorough and conscientious. Have trusted Dr. Klausner for years and my beautiful face has her to thank.

Helen

Helen

I've had a wonderful experience with Dr. Klausner. She really gave her time and full attention during our meetings--making me feel comfortable about the procedure. She is very skilled at what she does, meticulous, and gives her all. Most of all, I am grateful for her honesty throughout the entire process and her compassion. I am very happy with the results and grateful to have Dr. Klausner as my surgeon.

Very Natural Result

Personalized Care

A L

Absolutely the best, caring and attentive, personalized care tailored to my needs. Great results, family and friends will remark how good I look or express surprise when learning my age, yet it is not obvious that I’ve had “work done”. Isn’t this what everyone is looking for?

Calm and Peaceful

Atmosphere is calm and peaceful. Staff is responsive and friendly. Dr. K is thorough, exact (specific) and excellent bedside manner.

Everything was great. The staff are so nice—nicer than at any other doctor's office. It’s almost like how doctors used to be: nice, caring, not rushed, nice staff, organized, professional, attentive, etc. Dr. Klausner listened to all my concerns—crazy and normal concerns—with a warmth and kind understanding. She was not rushed. She did not make me feel silly or stupid. I was totally at ease. Also, the work is amazing. I’ve gotten many compliments.

Review from Barbara F.

Each experience with Dr. Klausner is nothing short of wonderful. She has just the disposition you search for in a doctor: warm, confident, a great listener, and precise. I feel extremely fortunate to have found her. As far as my earlobe repair: I never felt one drop of pain, I now have two perfectly shaped earlobes, and the re-pierced holes are perfectly placed. I couldn't be happier!!!

Dr. Klausner is an awesome doctor. I can't thank Dr. Bennett enough for referring me to her. Nervous about having surgery but I know I am in good hands. She is god sent.

Review from J. R.

J. R.

The whole experience was great! Aside from buying extra care tools (q-tips, saline) before my procedure instead of when I ran out a few days after (HA), I wouldn't change anything

Review from Jennifer G.

Jennifer G.

My experience with Dr. Klausner has exceeded all expectations. I first came to Dr. Klausner for a consultant on an upper eyelid lift, which I ultimately proceeded with. Her counsel was balanced, and objective and felt very much like receiving advice from a trusted family member. Since then I have gone to Dr. Klausner for injectables. It's important to me to feel I look natural and she has always offered the best advice and approach to help me achieve that. I also came to Dr. Klausner to do the closure for a Mohs surgery I needed on my face in a delicate area above my mouth. The experience of having to have the skin cancer surgery was upsetting and I was very concerned about scarring. She was the only doctor I would have seen to help with the closure because I trusted her implicitly and knew that while I would never be able to avoid a scar - she would help me achieve the best result possible. On a personal note - she's simply a delightful and warm person and regardless of the reason for your visit - she makes it a very positive experience. Her reception staff is lovely as well.

Review from Stefano U.

Body fx is a noninvasive easy and effective treatment . After several treatments on my thighs the cellulite became less visible and the skin appeared firmer. I would also say that it contoured my trouble spots. Dr Klausner is a true professional that takes my well being first and is dedicated to a "less is more " mentality.

Review from PJ

Dr. Klausner is amazing; I trust her and like her. I would not go to anyone else for work done on my face. At this time I only get injections but when it is time for me to have surgery I trust she would suggest the best options and trust her to do the surgery. Very glad I found you and your office staff is super.

Review from Kim S.

Kim S.

I can't say enough about Dr. Klausner and her office! She is an absolutely phenomenal surgeon that has not only helped me but helped a friend of mine as well. Her bedside manner is refreshing compared to most doctors here in NYC. She takes a lot of time going through every little detail with you to make sure you know what will be preformed. I was referred to her by another surgeon and I can't thank them enough!!

Review from Gail N.

Gail N.

Dr. Klausner is one of the best doctors in the world. This isn't a hyperbole either- I have a lot of health issues and have been to top doctors around the world- for reference, in Tokyo, Singapore, and England, ie/ on Harley Street and otherwise, like at the Princess Grace Hospital and the Priory Hospital. I have also gone to a number of notable doctors in NYC and across the country, and many of them I found were, despite the price, negligent. This is not to brag, because having poor health isn't really something to brag about- this is for me to confidently be able to make the statement that Dr. Klausner is better than any and all of them, thus one of the best in the world, with evidence. She has genuinely changed my life for two reasons. The first- Since I was a child, I would get sinusitis near monthly. My final straw was when I had basically one large sinus infection throughout all of my first year of University. I went to an ENT doctor at the university hospital who told me it was one of the worst she's seen. When I got home to NYC for the summer, I looked up ENT surgeons and somehow found Dr. Klausner. This was incredibly fortunate. She was kind, and conscious of everything that would happen before and after the surgery. Since the surgery 4 years ago, I have only had one sinus infection. It is pretty incredible. The second- when I was a child, I started to get painful spots on my legs. My pediatrician at the time referred me to a dermatology clinic. There, I saw a Yale-educated doctor, who didn't really know what it was. I went to her for years, and my condition just got worse and worse. It was painful to walk and sit. It went on like this for most of my life. I even saw a second doctor at NYU who didn't know what it was and told me I should get surgery to cut all the cysts out. I happened to mention it to Dr. Klausner on a follow-up appointment for my surgery, and upon looking she immediately knew what it was- Hidradenitis. She also had previously read about an experimental treatment to help relieve it (which didn't involve cutting up my legs), and we did the treatment together. For the first time since I was 7 years old, I didn't have pain. On top of that, with knowledge of the diagnosis, I found a dermatologist who knew exactly what it was so that we could make a plan on how to alleviate it. My condition has gotten so much better thanks to Dr. Klausner's diagnosis. Dr. Klausner is a kind and knowledgeable doctor who has made my life objectively better. Although she can be pricey, the price is suited for treatment from one of the best doctors in the world. Thanks, Dr. Klausner.

Review from Diana G.

Diana G.

Dr. Klausner is a very thorough doctor who goes above and beyond for her patients. I've had a wonderful experience through the whole process. Dr. Klausner has a great bedside manner and answers any questions I may have.

Review from Eileen M.

Eileen M.

This review is strictly for my consultation, as I have not had a good time to schedule my surgery just yet. Regardless, I think there is value to a consultation review because for anybody who is looking into rhinoplasty, the process of "feeling out" doctors with consults gets expensive. Dr. Klausner has spent literally hours speaking with me about different approaches to fixing my crooked nose- and she has done so without pressuring me into anything. I really really appreciated that. Dr. Klausner also spoke to me a lot about the parts of my nose that I like and ways to ensure that I would still look like myself after surgery. Other doctors that I've seen were very aggressive and adamant about changing pretty much everything about my nose. I'm sure those doctors are very skilled- there is a reason they have a TON of patient reviews. With that said, for me, I don't want my nose sort of knocked down and totally reconstructed. During my consultation I also saw images of patients who were treated by Dr. Klausner, and their outcomes were refreshingly unique/fitting for each face. I think this consultation was well worth my time and when I make my decision I know I'll be seeing Dr. Klausner.

She is very professional and made me feel very much at ease. Having had experience with several top doctors in the cosmetic space, I was very impressed. She is a very good listener and really takes time to understand your needs and explain things. Not only what I recommend her to others, but I already have.

Review from Terry N.

Terry N.

She was recommended to me by a friend who had seen her for filler and botox- my friend looked extremely natural and was thrilled with the results and Dr. Klausner's care. I have seen Dr. Klausner for other treatments and she is incredibly patient, honest, and caring. She does not over-promise the way some doctors do and she will always take the time to speak on the phone, answer questions etc. I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else.

Review from Katherine B.

Katherine B.

She took her time and explained all my questions. She was very knowledgeable and kind. Her office was organized and had every magazine you would ever want to read in the waiting room... but I didn't have to wait at all so I didn't get to read them. The receptionist, Alysa, was very nice and accommodating.

Dr. Klausner changed my life! After going to multiple doctors who said there was nothing that could be done for me, seeing Dr. Klausner was like a light in my life. She not only took her time to explain everything but also made you feel comfortable when your nerves are at an all time high. Dr. Klausner is an amazing surgeon who pulls off the impossible. I could not be more thankful to have been cared for by one of the best doctors out there. Thank you to Dr. Klausner and her staff for an amazing and life changing experience!

About Me

Expressive Eyelift

This patient had an upper and lower blepharoplasty when she was 43 years old. “Now, at age 51, her results still look great without any evidence of puffiness or lax skin,” says Dr. Klausner.

Expressive Eyelift

This 58-year-old male patient expressed concerns with the appearance of his excess eyelid skin, but did not want to receive a browlift in fear of looking too surprised and feminine. Dr. Klausner performed upper and lower eyelid surgery to give the eyes a more open and youthful appearance.

Nonsurgical Skin Tightener

This 80-year-old female patient wanted to reduce the lax skin on her face and neck and turned to Dr. Klausner for help. “I customized her Ultherapy treatment to include a higher density application of ultrasound energy at varied depths on the face and neck,” says Dr. Klausner. “This result was achieved seven months after treatment.”

Better Balance

This patient was bothered by the bump on her nasal bridge and had difficulty breathing through her nose. Rhinoplasty gave her a more natural look and allowed her to breathe easier.

Nonsurgical Skin Tightener

To reduce the skin laxity on her neck and face, this 55-year-old patient was treated noninvasively with Ultherapy. “I customized her treatment regimen to include a higher density application of ultrasound energy at varied depths on the face and neck,” says Dr. Klausner. “This result was achieved three months after her treatment.” 

The Beauty of Ultherapy

Dr. Klausner recommends Ultherapy as a great starting procedure for anyone who is experiencing lax facial skin and elasticity issues. As an FDA-cleared, noninvasive treatment for lifting and tightening of the face and brows, Ultherapy features micro-focused ultrasound technology that delivers thermal energy at specific depths under the skin. In the healing process, new collagen formation, contraction and tightening of the tissue take place under the surface of the skin. “I am an Ultherapy user, and I do all of the treatments myself,” says Dr. Klausner. “I’ve found that my technique for Ultherapy has evolved with my clinical observations. I’m able to customize the treatment to each patient and his or her needs. I am first and foremost a surgeon, but being able to balance invasive procedures with those that are noninvasive is a great thing for the patient.”

FAQ's

Q. 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.  

Q. 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). 

About Dr. Lee Ann M. Klausner
About Me

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. 

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. 

About My Practice

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 is a useful beauty tip for our readers?

Remembering to exfoliate is key because our ability to turn over skin cells slows down as we age. 

What are some of your most requested procedures?

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

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 do you educate patients?

I take a holistic approach to educating and partnering with my patients. I use my listening skills to understand their motivations, and tools like computer imaging to draw realistic, potential results for the patient. I then recommend different treatment options that are within their comfort zone. Patients should feel empowered by this education, understand what to expect and know that they aren’t alone. It’s a true partnership to reach the set goal.

Insights

Expressive Eyelift

This patient had an upper and lower blepharoplasty when she was 43 years old. “Now, at age 51, her results still look great without any evidence of puffiness or lax skin,” says Dr. Klausner.

Expressive Eyelift

This 58-year-old male patient expressed concerns with the appearance of his excess eyelid skin, but did not want to receive a browlift in fear of looking too surprised and feminine. Dr. Klausner performed upper and lower eyelid surgery to give the eyes a more open and youthful appearance.

Nonsurgical Skin Tightener

This 80-year-old female patient wanted to reduce the lax skin on her face and neck and turned to Dr. Klausner for help. “I customized her Ultherapy treatment to include a higher density application of ultrasound energy at varied depths on the face and neck,” says Dr. Klausner. “This result was achieved seven months after treatment.”

Better Balance

This patient was bothered by the bump on her nasal bridge and had difficulty breathing through her nose. Rhinoplasty gave her a more natural look and allowed her to breathe easier.

Nonsurgical Skin Tightener

To reduce the skin laxity on her neck and face, this 55-year-old patient was treated noninvasively with Ultherapy. “I customized her treatment regimen to include a higher density application of ultrasound energy at varied depths on the face and neck,” says Dr. Klausner. “This result was achieved three months after her treatment.” 

The Beauty of Ultherapy

Dr. Klausner recommends Ultherapy as a great starting procedure for anyone who is experiencing lax facial skin and elasticity issues. As an FDA-cleared, noninvasive treatment for lifting and tightening of the face and brows, Ultherapy features micro-focused ultrasound technology that delivers thermal energy at specific depths under the skin. In the healing process, new collagen formation, contraction and tightening of the tissue take place under the surface of the skin. “I am an Ultherapy user, and I do all of the treatments myself,” says Dr. Klausner. “I’ve found that my technique for Ultherapy has evolved with my clinical observations. I’m able to customize the treatment to each patient and his or her needs. I am first and foremost a surgeon, but being able to balance invasive procedures with those that are noninvasive is a great thing for the patient.” 

FAQ

Q. 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.

Noticeable jaw and chin definition

After a few months, I remarked noticeable jaw definition and chin definition. It took time but improvements are very clear, dramatic and noticeable. A remarkable treatment and Dr. Klausner was gentle, very patient and took a great deal of time.

Couldn't have been happier with my care

Anonymous Patient

Both Lee and Melissa were great and couldn’t have done anything else to help make the procedure and aftercare better. The follow up calls and advice were also above and beyond what I expected. I couldn’t have been happier with my care.

Honest, realistic and very detailed

Anonymous Patient

I am very happy with how this process has gone. Dr. Klausner’s sensitive, more reserved approach made me and my mom feel more comfortable before, during and after the operation. Dr. Klausner is honest and realistic as well as very detailed–all qualities that have made me feel comfortable and calm. Above all, Dr. Klausner is a caring doctor and I’m very happy and fortunate to have her as my surgeon.

Natural and beautiful results

Dr. Klausner is the most personable professional doctor I have ever met. She listens carefully and addresses my concerns each time I’ve been to see her. The results of her procedures are the most natural and beautiful. Her bedside manner is so reassuring.

For the past few years I’ve been a patient of Dr. Klausner’s. At first, I took baby steps: a skin regimen to help repair the sun damage, fillers for the naso-labial folds, a little Botox for the furrow between my eyebrows, Ult-therapy to help tighten the skin. It wasn’t long before friends were asking if I had “work” done - the improvement was that good. Recently Dr. Klausner performed an upper lid blepharoplasty and a mini-facelift. The result is spectacular and natural. It has been many years since I have felt this good looking in the mirror. Friends and neighbors do a double-take and then tell me how fabulous I look with the new hair-cut or ask if I lost weight. Ironically no one suspects that I had “work” done. There are many talented plastic surgeons in New York City. Dr. Klausner is not only a talented surgeon but she is committed to her patient’s total well being. She took the time to get to know me and understand my needs. She tailored the surgery to make me look the best that I could. She truly cares. I could not be happier.

Recommends what I need and what is best for me

Dr. Klausner recommends what I need, what is best for me and she does it herself. She also remembers what she has done with me and proceeds with a useful, effective regimen.

Effective and non-invasive treatments

Dr. Klausner answer my questions clearly and candidly. The procedures and treatments she recommended were effective and non-invasive. I am very pleased with the results.

I went to see Dr. Klausner when I turned 29 because I was a sun lover. I had uneven skin tone, the surface was not so smooth, and then I started developing freckles I never had. I had Clear and Brilliant laser done. During my consultation, Dr. Klausner was so attentive and answered all my questions and I felt so comfortable with her. Most doctors I have seen in the past rush through the visit and you get you so nervous that you forget to ask important questions. Dr. Klausner takes her time and is huge on patient education which I really value. Quality service and the best bedside manner. I also had Ultherapy done and her staff called the next day to check in on me! LOVE IT!

My eyelids were sagging making my vision impaired and when I checked into the airport I had to pay the extra luggage fee for the bags under my eyes. Dr. Klausner came highly recommended to me. During the consultation she patiently answered all my questions and made me feel completely confident in her aesthetic vision. Dr. Klausner performed the eyelift on me, instantly taking ten years off. my face. The procedure was painless and I only incurred minimal post procedural pain. The healing was remarkably quick. I felt comfortable showing my face in public, without sunglasses after one week. My main concern was appearing too tightly pulled. As a man, I really didn't want to look as if I had undergone plastic surgery.. My eyes look totally natural and no one would ever suspect that I had undergone any cosmetic surgery, yet everyone comments on how well I'm looking. My only regret is that I hadn't done it sooner. I would highly recommend this procedure for anyone who is unhappy with their aging eyes and if you're going to do it, go to the best, Dr. Klausner.

Fabulous procedure

G L

Ultheraphy is a fabulous procedure. It is quick with no down time and unbelievable results. My jawline and neck look ten years younger. I also think it depends who does the procedure. I have friends in Florida who are coming to New York specifically to see Dr. Klausner. Dr. Klaussner is unique. She is warm, caring, so down to earth that it is hard to believe that she is “The Doctor.” My face was devastated by a bacterial infection, in addition to volume loss due to aging. I trust her judgment completely. My son had not seen me in a year, his reaction was “Mom you look better than you did 10 years ago.” I feel like a different person. I now fly back from Florida to see her.

Dr. Klausner encourages a natural look

C K

Amazing! Dr. Klausner encourages a natural look, not a fake, statue look. Personable. Works with you to find something good for you. Tells you about new treatments coming out. Staff is amazing, responsive and confidential. I would refer her for sure.

Follow up was incredible

Lauren R

The follow up after the procedure was incredible. I was back in the office to get decongested almost every day, making me much more comfortable after the surgery. Dr. Klausner was always reachable if I needed her and was willing to fit me into her schedule if I needed to see her after my surgery.

Skin feels smooth and tight

Diane C

There are some immediate results and the rest starts to happen very slowly. The one day people start to tell you “Wow you never seem to age,” you look in the mirror and your skin feels smooth and tight, and you are not sure why. Then you remember that you had the procedure done a few months ago.

Fabulous and caring

The whole experience was great! Aside from buying extra care tools (q-tips, saline) before my procedure instead of when I ran out a few days after (HA), I wouldn't change anything

Review from Jennifer G.

Jennifer G.

My experience with Dr. Klausner has exceeded all expectations. I first came to Dr. Klausner for a consultant on an upper eyelid lift, which I ultimately proceeded with. Her counsel was balanced, and objective and felt very much like receiving advice from a trusted family member. Since then I have gone to Dr. Klausner for injectables. It's important to me to feel I look natural and she has always offered the best advice and approach to help me achieve that. I also came to Dr. Klausner to do the closure for a Mohs surgery I needed on my face in a delicate area above my mouth. The experience of having to have the skin cancer surgery was upsetting and I was very concerned about scarring. She was the only doctor I would have seen to help with the closure because I trusted her implicitly and knew that while I would never be able to avoid a scar - she would help me achieve the best result possible. On a personal note - she's simply a delightful and warm person and regardless of the reason for your visit - she makes it a very positive experience. Her reception staff is lovely as well.

I can't say enough about Dr. Klausner and her office! She is an absolutely phenomenal surgeon that has not only helped me but helped a friend of mine as well. Her bedside manner is refreshing compared to most doctors here in NYC. She takes a lot of time going through every little detail with you to make sure you know what will be preformed. I was referred to her by another surgeon and I can't thank them enough!!

Review from Gail N.

Gail N.

Dr. Klausner is one of the best doctors in the world. This isn't a hyperbole either- I have a lot of health issues and have been to top doctors around the world- for reference, in Tokyo, Singapore, and England, ie/ on Harley Street and otherwise, like at the Princess Grace Hospital and the Priory Hospital. I have also gone to a number of notable doctors in NYC and across the country, and many of them I found were, despite the price, negligent. This is not to brag, because having poor health isn't really something to brag about- this is for me to confidently be able to make the statement that Dr. Klausner is better than any and all of them, thus one of the best in the world, with evidence. She has genuinely changed my life for two reasons. The first- Since I was a child, I would get sinusitis near monthly. My final straw was when I had basically one large sinus infection throughout all of my first year of University. I went to an ENT doctor at the university hospital who told me it was one of the worst she's seen. When I got home to NYC for the summer, I looked up ENT surgeons and somehow found Dr. Klausner. This was incredibly fortunate. She was kind, and conscious of everything that would happen before and after the surgery. Since the surgery 4 years ago, I have only had one sinus infection. It is pretty incredible. The second- when I was a child, I started to get painful spots on my legs. My pediatrician at the time referred me to a dermatology clinic. There, I saw a Yale-educated doctor, who didn't really know what it was. I went to her for years, and my condition just got worse and worse. It was painful to walk and sit. It went on like this for most of my life. I even saw a second doctor at NYU who didn't know what it was and told me I should get surgery to cut all the cysts out. I happened to mention it to Dr. Klausner on a follow-up appointment for my surgery, and upon looking she immediately knew what it was- Hidradenitis. She also had previously read about an experimental treatment to help relieve it (which didn't involve cutting up my legs), and we did the treatment together. For the first time since I was 7 years old, I didn't have pain. On top of that, with knowledge of the diagnosis, I found a dermatologist who knew exactly what it was so that we could make a plan on how to alleviate it. My condition has gotten so much better thanks to Dr. Klausner's diagnosis. Dr. Klausner is a kind and knowledgeable doctor who has made my life objectively better. Although she can be pricey, the price is suited for treatment from one of the best doctors in the world. Thanks, Dr. Klausner.

Review from Eileen M.

Eileen M.

This review is strictly for my consultation, as I have not had a good time to schedule my surgery just yet. Regardless, I think there is value to a consultation review because for anybody who is looking into rhinoplasty, the process of "feeling out" doctors with consults gets expensive. Dr. Klausner has spent literally hours speaking with me about different approaches to fixing my crooked nose- and she has done so without pressuring me into anything. I really really appreciated that. Dr. Klausner also spoke to me a lot about the parts of my nose that I like and ways to ensure that I would still look like myself after surgery. Other doctors that I've seen were very aggressive and adamant about changing pretty much everything about my nose. I'm sure those doctors are very skilled- there is a reason they have a TON of patient reviews. With that said, for me, I don't want my nose sort of knocked down and totally reconstructed. During my consultation I also saw images of patients who were treated by Dr. Klausner, and their outcomes were refreshingly unique/fitting for each face. I think this consultation was well worth my time and when I make my decision I know I'll be seeing Dr. Klausner.

She was recommended to me by a friend who had seen her for filler and botox- my friend looked extremely natural and was thrilled with the results and Dr. Klausner's care. I have seen Dr. Klausner for other treatments and she is incredibly patient, honest, and caring. She does not over-promise the way some doctors do and she will always take the time to speak on the phone, answer questions etc. I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else.
