"PLASTIC" in plastic surgery does not mean artificial. Rather, it is derived from the ancient Greek word plastikos, meaning to mould or to give form.
Facial plastic surgery can not only change your appearance but can also boost your self-confidence and help you look as young as you feel. Whether you want to get rid of the hoods or bags from your eyes, smooth wrinkles, tighten sagging skin, or correct a problem resulting from surgery, birth defects or the effects of aging, the wide array of procedures available at our office can help you achieve the appearance you desire.
Our office has a new state-of-the-art surgery center to further patient care in a superbly comfortable, safe and convenient facility.
Meet Dr. Gordon
Dr. James R. Gordon is a board-certified ophthalmologist specializing in oculoplastic surgery (eyelid and facial cosmetic / reconstructive surgery). He has over 14 years of extensive experience including thousands of procedures from simple eyelid enhancement surgery to major reconstructive procedures. Dr. Gordon has a particular expertise in the more challenging cases. He has published numerous articles about facial plastic surgery and has given many lectures on cosmetic facial and eyelid procedures.
The best advice I was given when I joined my father in practice was his saying, "Treat every patient as if they were your own mother."
Dr. Gordon was once again awarded 2013 Castle Connolly's "Top Doctors". Castle Connolly's picks are based on an extensive nomination process; tens of thousands of physicians as well as academic medical centers, specialty hospitals, and regional and community hospitals all over the country are asked to nominate the top specialists both locally and nationally. Each doctor’s educational and professional experience is carefully screened before the final selection is made among those physicians most highly regarded by their peers. Doctors do not and cannot pay to be selected and profiled as Castle Connolly Top Doctors. Dr. Gordon is honored to be recognized as one of New York’s best doctors.
