About Our Practice

Welcome to our special, comprehensive, private, and personalized practice. Here, we believe that individualization and personal attention are the keys to achieving natural-looking effects.

People are born with unique faces, eyelids, chins, and noses. They shouldn’t all have the same facelift, eyelid surgery, nose job, or even Botox® injections.

Dr. Kane is dedicated to treating each patient as an individual. He does not believe in “cookie-cutter medicine.” In addition to medical training and his multi-decade experience performing aesthetic procedures, Dr. Kane has studied at the Parsons School of Design and attended film school at NYU. This broadening, image-focused training has helped Dr. Kane sharpen his eye toward accentuating and restoring the natural attractiveness particular to each patient.

As a plastic surgeon, Dr. Kane draws from his full range of medical knowledge, surgical skills, and sense of aesthetics to address each of his patient’s needs, in all areas of the body. His sensitive, patient-focused approach brings about both successful, satisfying outcomes in every surgery, as well as a comfortable experience through all stages of the process.

Dr. Michael Kane is an aesthetic plastic surgeon who has been practicing in New York City for over fifteen years. From his offices on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Dr. Kane performs a wide variety of cutting-edge cosmetic procedures, facial rejuvenation, and injections. Dr. Kane has been in private practice since 1992, and frequently lectures on topics relating to aesthetic plastic surgery.

From 1989 to 1991, Dr. Kane participated in a plastic surgical residency at Wright State University in Ohio. Following this, he completed an additional fellowship in aesthetic surgery at NYU, based at the Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital. There Dr. Kane studied under several of the nation’s preeminent cosmetic plastic surgeons, and also operated on his own patients. When Dr. Kane opened his practice in 1992, he had extensive surgical and clinical experience.

Dr. Kane is known for his work with Botulinum Toxin A, or Botox®. He pioneered the use of Botox® for cosmetic purposes while a fellow at the Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital. Over the past twenty years, Dr. Kane has taught thousands of physicians how to properly inject Botox®through lectures and live demonstrations.

Dr. Kane is also a distinguished authority on correcting the tear trough and lower eyelid area using fillers. He authored the first scientific paper on this technique, and continues to lecture worldwide on the subject.
