Welcome to my website. I am Charles Thorne, MD, a Plastic Surgeon in New York. I hope you find this website informative and I hope I can help you.
I have been practicing plastic surgery in Manhattan for 25 years and have been lucky to be listed in the Castle and Connolly and New York Magazine "Best Doctor" publications many times. Although I enjoy my position as Chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at Lenox Hill and Manhattan, Eye, Ear and Throat Hospitals and my leadership positions in national plastic surgery organizations, my real interest and expertise is performing surgery and taking care of patients. Making people happy never gets old.
We all have physical features that we don't like and, in some cases, would like to change. I would like to help you. I invite you to explore this site and those linked to it and to contact us. I cannot guarantee perfect results in every patient, every time (be careful if anyone does!). I do guarantee that my staff and I offer a degree of professionalism, concern, honesty, competence and individualization that equals or surpasses any surgical experience in the world.
As is typical for a cosmetic plastic surgeon in New York City, or any major metropolitan area, my practice becomes more specialized as each year passes. My practice now consists of cosmetic plastic surgery and a few highly specialized areas of reconstructive plastic surgery. This website focuses on the cosmetic surgery portion of the practice. You will find links to sites that focus on the reconstructive areas such as ear reconstruction and otoplasty, craniofacial surgery, complex facial bone injuries, and pediatric plastic surgery.
As patients, you should want to know what procedures I specialize in. You know that no one can be the world's expert at every operation. The areas where I consider myself an authority, as good as anyone in the world, are FACES, NOSES AND EARS. I will attempt in this website to expose you to my philosophy, my personality, my biases, my techniques and my results. Please see the link to my credentials.
