A Treasure! - New York, NY

Dr. Y is a plastic surgeon, but she doesn't think everyone needs surgery!! Sounds simple, but I can assure you that doctors like her are next to impossible to find. If you want expertise, information and all options addressed, she is the one. Her results (non-surical and surgical) are impressively natural!

Personal Statement

I am a facial plastic surgeon in NYC who has been providing an integrated approach—to beauty, aesthetics, ear, nose, throat, voice, and facial medicine—since 1990! This means taking the best of multiple disciplines and combining them to deliver patient care that’s greater than the sum of its parts.

Consultation Fee

The doctor will spend at least 45 minutes with you directly. You will not be with a nurse or medical assistant. All options will be discussed including alternative, holistic, non-invasive, laser, injectable, and surgical ones. The doctor will share her recommendations.
