Long Island, NY — Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, PC (LIPSG), the largest and longest-running private academic plastic surgical practice in the United States, has announced the addition of Frederick N. Lukash, MD, FACS, FAAP as its 18th member physician.
A long time resident and surgeon on the North Shore, Dr. Lukash will be bringing his 32 years of experience to the New York plastic surgery practice and working with the offices in Manhasset Americana and Manhattan. As a highly-trained plastic surgeon, he is experienced in a number of cosmetic treatments and procedures ranging from breast augmentation to nose reshaping.
Consistently voted one of “America’s Top Doctors” by the Castle Connolly Physician’s Guide and by the Consumer Research Council of America, Dr. Lukash maintains a strong commitment to both adults and children. He is certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and he is a Fellow in the American College of Surgeons and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Currently, Dr. Lukash is an Assistant Clinical Professor of Surgery at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the Hofstra University School of Medicine.
Dr. Lukash received his college and medical degrees from Tulane University. His postgraduate training includes Emory University Affiliated Hospitals, Nassau University Medical Center, and Harvard University where he held the position of Instructor in Surgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital. He is an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the American Association of Pediatric Plastic Surgeons, and the prestigious American Association of Plastic Surgeons.
Dr. Lukash has published more than 25 academic papers and contributed chapters to four leading textbooks in the field of reconstructive plastic surgery. Additionally, he holds a patent in microsurgical instrumentation.
Recognized as an innovator with his work in body image issues with children, adolescents, and teens, Dr. Lukash says he understands that these age groups may have difficulty in emoting feelings regarding their looks whether congenital, traumatic, or aesthetic. He has used art as a non-verbal vehicle before and after surgery to “understand and appreciate their angst.”
Together with specialists in child psychiatry and art therapy, an analysis of 30 years experience led the New York plastic surgeon to write a landmark article: “Children’s Art as a Helpful Index of Anxiety and Self-Esteem with Plastic Surgery” (Journal of Plastic Surgery: 109:6 May 2002). This authorship led to a writing of his position paper on teenage plastic surgery for the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Currently, Dr. Lukash’s collection is in a traveling exhibit called “Operation Art.”
In 2010, Dr. Lukash published the critically acclaimed book, “The Safe and Sane Guide to Teenage Plastic Surgery” (BenBella Books, Dallas TX). It is regarded as a breakthrough publication appealing to both professionals and consumers on the topic of plastic surgery among adolescents and teens.
His strong commitment to community service has resulted in volunteering his time and expertise to “Surgical Aid to Children of the World” and “Operation Smile,” as well as local foster and adoption agencies so that “young innocents may have a better quality of life.” In addition to being honored by the Chief Executive of Nassau County for this service, Dr. Lukash was also recognized by the United States Olympic Committee for service at the summer games.
Additionally, Dr. Lukash holds staff appointments at Long Island Jewish Medical Center, Cohen Children’s Hospital, North Shore University Hospital, St. Francis Hospital, Winthrop-University Hospital, and Lenox Hill Hospital where he treats both adult cosmetic and pediatric/adolescent body image patients.

Non-surgical ultrasound treatment offered at Long Island plastic surgery practice’s Aesthetic Center is FDA-approved to lift skin on the neck, brow, and underneath the chin
Long Island, NY – Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, PC (LIPSG) announced that Ultherapy – the only non-invasive procedure FDA-approved to lift skin on the neck, on the brow, and under the chin – will now be available at all four of their Aesthetic Center locations: Garden City, Manhasset, Babylon, and Manhattan.
Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure for the face and neck that stimulates the body’s own natural healing process to lift the skin over time. The New York plastic surgeons at LIPSG say the use of FDA-cleared ultrasound technology enables providers, for the first time, to see and then treat the deepest support layers of the skin – typically addressed in cosmetic surgery – without cutting or disrupting the surface of the skin.
“Ultherapy represents a whole new category within aesthetic medicine,” says Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh, Medical Director of Long Island Plastic Surgical Group’s Aesthetic Centers. “It is an ideal cosmetic procedure for those looking for natural yet noticeable results.”
According to the LIPSG surgeons, a treatment can take 30 – 90 minutes. They say patients do not need to take any special measures and there is little to no down time post treatment. Additionally, they highlight that with just one Ultherapy treatment, the lifting process is initiated, but the effect will build gradually over the course of two to three months, as new, stronger collagen and elastin are created. Further improvements can even appear up to six months following a procedure as this collagen-building process continues.
While the results do not duplicate those of surgery, the LIPSG surgeons say Ultherapy’s gradual improvements make it a compelling option for people who have mild to moderate skin laxity, as well as those who want to “stay ahead of the game” and those looking to prolong the effects of cosmetic surgery.
Aesthetic Center at Long Island Plastic Surgical Group will be holding an Ultherapy introductory event in their Garden City office, located at 999 Franklin Avenue, on March 27th from 7:00-9:00 PM. Special pricing will be available for attendees. To attend the event, RSVP to RSVP@lipsg.com or call 516-535-6704.
