Meet Dr. Frederick Lukash
Dr. Frederick N. Lukash has consistently been voted one of “America’s Top Doctors,” by the Castle Connolly guide, and by the Consumer Research Council of America. Dr. Lukash is a board-certified cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon who has been in practice since 1981. He joined Long Island Plastic Surgical Group as a senior associate in 2013. 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 in surgery and plastic surgery includes Emory University, Stony Brook State University of New York, and Harvard University, where he held the position of Instructor in surgery.
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.
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” (Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery: 109:6 May 2002). 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” (BenBella Books, Dallas TX). 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.
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.
