LONG ISLAND, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 04/10/13 -- 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.

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."
