Although the services offered by New York plastic surgeon Dr. George Lefkovits at Park Plaza Plastic Surgery are aesthetic in nature, most of our procedures are also surgical and require high levels of accuracy and care backed up by an in-depth education and extensive training.

Recent stories about a Florida cosmetic surgeon linked to two deaths emphasizes the importance of researching prospective plastic surgeons and ensuring that you select a surgeon with proper experience in your particular procedure and who is also board-certified.

The surgeon in question operated a cosmetic surgery clinic where two patients have died in the past year after undergoing fat-removal procedures. Although the surgeon was trained in general surgery and is a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons, he did not undergo the rigorous training that surgeons certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) must pass.

ABPS-certified plastic surgeons receive additional training and hands-on experience and must pass an intensive examination to verify their competence in cosmetic surgery procedures.

Dr. Lefkovits is committed to performing procedures that are safe and effectively meet your aesthetic goals. Dr. Lefkovits is certified by both the ABPS and the American Board of Otolaryngology, and he has more than three decades of experience helping patients from around the globe achieve their aesthetic goals through plastic and cosmetic surgery.
