Restylane Doctor in New York City
What is Restylane?
Restylane is hyaluronic acid which is found in our skin and in our joints that dissipates as we get older. Restylane is synthesized in a lab and it’s used as an injectable material in order to provide volume to the skin where that has diminished, or to provide volume underneath the skin. We used to think that our skin sags and therefore we need to intervene, and what we’ve come to realize is that before the skin sags we lose facial volume. And so with the loss of facial volume there’s loss of support of the skin and then the skin sags. So the approach now to restore facial volume with the use of substances like Restylane is very helpful in delaying progression of aging because we’re restoring the support to the skin, so there…we’re seeing less sagging long-term.
How long does Restylane last?
When one of Dr. Klausner’s patients receive a Restylane treatment in New York City the average rule is it will last about six to eight months. The natural looking results is achieved after a Restylane injections which causes the area to be slow and pliable. After about six to eight months depending on how the body absorbs the filler the injections can be repeated.

Blepharoplasty in New York City | Lee Ann Klausner MD
Blepharoplasty Specialist Video Transcription
Blepharoplasty is an operation performed on the upper and lower eyelids in order to reduce extra skin and prominent fat that may have developed as a result of aging or hereditary factors.
Why do people get blepharoplasties?
People get blepharoplasties because they want to rejuvenate the appearance of their eyes. Very often, patients are told that they look tired all the time or they look angry, and what a blepharoplasty can achieve is it can reduce some of the extra skin that’s weighing down the upper lids or the extra skin that’s creating wrinkles and contour irregularity to the lower eyelids, and have a more open eye appearance and achieve less puffiness around the eyes.
What is the goal of blepharoplasty?
The goal of blepharoplasty is to achieve a natural rejuvenated appearing eye, one where a patient’s eye still able to close and the function as it normally would, and one that has a natural unoperated appearance. And this is achieved in a very individualized way from patient to patient.
Watch Lee Ann Klausner, MD speak about medical background and passion for her patients.
People ask me all the time about when did you know that you wanted to become a doctor? I was a compassionate child and I was the child that helped other children when they were hurt, and I really loved taking care of people. So curiosity for the sciences was something that I realized, and I loved that medicine enabled me to pursue intellectual curiosities in the sciences, and also to have a great opportunity to help people. I went to medical school at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. and did my residency in otolaryngology and head and neck surgery at NYU, and a fellowship in facial plastic surgery with Dr. Russel Kridel. I didn’t know any women surgeons, so that was also a process that I really came to discover as I experienced medical school. I realized that I really thought in a systematic way, the way that surgeons think. And I love that there were problems, and we had very definite solutions, and I love the intensity of surgery. It was such a suitable choice for me because I had this creative background also, and this is the one area where you cannot only employ your, you know, knowledge of the sciences, but also use your creativity to make a big impact.
I have two board certifications, one is in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, and the other is in otolaryngology, which is head and neck surgery. And what board certification means is that I have met very rigorous standards set by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and also set by the American Board of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery. I demonstrate that I have a broader knowledge of all types of conditions and surgical experience involving the head and neck. It’s such a great advantage for me as a practicing surgeon to be able to treat the whole patient and treat in a comprehensive way. Meeting those high standards is a great way in order to ensure high quality results for my patients.
