Dr. Michael Dobryansky

Dr. Michael Dobryansky joined Long Island Plastic Surgical Group in 2009 and became a partner in 2011. Dr. Dobryansky is a Cum Laude graduate of New York University (NYU) where he majored in Comparative Literature and minored in Chemistry. He continued his studies at the NYU School of Medicine where he completed both his MD and general surgery residency. During his residency, Dr. Dobryansky dedicated an entire year to full-time laboratory research at the NYU Laboratory of Plastic Surgery and Tissue Engineering. The work of the laboratory was published in numerous medical journals and presented at several international meetings. Dr. Dobryansky then went on to the prestigious Cleveland Clinic where he completed a Plastic Surgery residency and a post-graduate fellowship in Aesthetic Surgery. He is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Dobryansky performs a wide range of cosmetic surgical procedures including body contouring and breast augmentation, as well as reconstructive procedures such as breast reconstruction after cancer. In addition to surgical procedures, Dr. Dobryansky specializes in non-surgical facial rejuvenation using the latest injectable methods to restore volume to facial contours and smooth wrinkles. Dr. Dobryansky has published numerous articles and book chapters on diverse topics in plastic and reconstructive surgery. He is also actively involved in the Clinical Trials Division at Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, helping to improve procedures and make them safer.

Dr. Dobryansky speaks fluent English and Russian and is a classically trained pianist.
