As one of NYC’s best plastic surgeons, Dr. Klausner demonstrates a commitment to excellence and keen attention to detail.

“My primary focus is your appearance, safety, and well-being.”

As one of NYC’s best plastic surgeons, Dr. Klausner’s training and background have given her a unique angle to listen to your problems and present you with solutions to your aging health. As one of a select few women in facial plastic surgery, Dr. Klausner is in touch with the modern-day needs of patients seeking natural results. It is the artful use of invasive techniques in combination with noninvasive techniques that gives Dr. Klausner’s patients optimal results. This balance of the surgical with the nonsurgical helps her patients still look like themselves, only better.

“Patients want to look their best without losing the essence of who they are in the process.”

What sets Dr. Klausner apart is her compassion and ability to connect with her patients, listen to their concerns, and formulate a customized plan to address their goals. Her approach centers around providing her patients with treatment options, from noninvasive and minimally invasive to surgical or a combination, so that her patients can make choices that best suit their needs and lifestyle.

“There is a tremendous responsibility that comes with earning a patient’s trust.”

Dr. Klausner believes earning a patient’s trust starts with recommending the appropriate procedures that a patient needs to achieve his or her goals without pushing or selling anything, and continues with doing the best she can to exceed the patient’s expectations.

Reviews

"So grateful that I found Dr. Klausner. She is an amazig doctor and person. After going to numerous doctors/surgeons for my large nasal perforation and saddling she was the only one who listened and diagnosed my problem. She gave me a detailed plan on how to proceed. She was very empathetic, kind and patient through the entire process. My surgery was extremely complicated but I'm happy to report a success! No other surgeon wanted to help me as they all said it was not possible to close such a large perforation. Dr. Klausner did it!!! She has truly changed my life!"

"I met with Dr. Klausner to have a large cyst removed from the bridge of my nose in between my eyes. It had become infected and was very painful. My local ER doctor had sliced it open to drain it and I was left with a big gaping wound on my face. Needless to say, I was distraught and very self-conscious. Dr. Klausner was incredible. She inspected the prior doctor’s work and made a few careful incisions to further drain the cyst. It was clear that it was something that had been under the surface for quite a number of years and Dr. Klausner was very thorough in her inquiry and considered all possible causes. Our first consultation lasted for almost two hours. Because of the location of the cyst, she sent me to have an MRI to ensure that it was not connected to any of the bone. When the infection subsided and it was ready to be removed, Dr. Klausner patiently and carefully excised the whole thing. She has also scheduled several follow-up appointments with me to check on how I am healing. I do have a small scar, which was expected, but it it’s getting flatter and less noticeable every day. I cannot speak highly enough about my experience with Dr. Klausner. Highly recommend."

"Dr. Klausner is hands down the best! She performed a sinus surgery and straightened my septum in 2017 and I could not be happier with the result. Dr. Klausner truly listens to her patients and provides expert guidance and thorough explanations for her recommended approach. When I saw her the day following my surgery she gave me a gentle face wash all around the area and I could've cried it felt so nice. Her follow up with me was impeccable. She took great care of me through my entire recovery journey. Can not recommend Dr. Klausner enough!!"

"I am so thrilled that I chose Dr. Klausner as my plastic surgeon, she is absolutely phenomenal. During my visits for both surgical and non-surgical procedures, she gave me her undivided, focused attention. She attends to the smallest of details - - which is what you want in a plastic surgeon - - and I trust her completely. She and her team have been with me every step of the way during this journey and I cannot imagine seeing any other facial plastic surgeon. I love visiting Dr. Klausner's office and seeing Melissa and Jeslyne, and I am so happy I found the Klausner Institute!"
