Professional statement

*IMPORTANT NOTICES:* - After requesting your appointment, the office will be contacting you for additional information necessary to secure your appointment. Please respond in a timely manner in order to confirm your appointment. - Cosmetic Surgery consultations are complimentary; however, please note that a valid credit card is required to schedule your appointment. ------------------------------------------------------------------ Recognized as an innovator with his work in body image issues with children, adolescents, and teens, Dr. Lukash 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 to a landmark article “Children’s Art as a Helpful Index of Anxiety and Self-Esteem with Plastic Surgery”. This authorship led to a writing of the position paper on teenage plastic surgery for the American Society for 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”. It is a break-through 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.
