Ponce de Leon may not have succeeded in finding the Fountain of Youth, but we’ve discovered the secret to looking more youthful and refreshed. When you look your best, you feel your best—younger, healthier, and more vibrant, radiating an aura of beauty that stems from within.
This is precisely why many will benefit from Dr. Ari Hoschander’s extensive experience and proven abilities in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Hoschander joined the Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery practice last summer and sees patients in its three offices, located in Woodbury, Manhattan, and Southampton. He is known for his outstanding work in cosmetic plastic surgery and reconstructive plastic surgery.
Dr. Hoschander’s warm demeanor and engaging personality allow him to build a rapport and work with patients of all ages with a broad array of surgical and minimally invasive needs. Dr. Hoschander specializes in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgical procedures, including facial injections, rhinoplasty, facelift and eyelid surgery, breast reconstruction procedures, and skin-cancer procedures.
Dr. Hoschander comes to the practice with extensive training in New York and Miami. He received his medical degree at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2006. After that, he began a general surgery internship at North Shore University Hospital–Long Island Jewish Medical Center, which progressed to a general surgery residency from 2006 until 2011. In both 2009 and 2011, Dr. Hoschander was awarded the Resident Teaching Award from the North Shore–LIJ Department of Surgery for excellence in teaching and pioneering many resident educational programs. In the 2010–2011 academic years, Dr. Hoschander served as a chief resident of general surgery at North Shore-LIJ.
After training in general surgery, Dr. Hoschander entered a prestigious plastic surgery fellowship for three years at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. While there, Dr. Hoschander compiled, edited, and co-authored a textbook on plastic surgery techniques titled Operative Procedures in Plastic, Aesthetic, and Reconstructive Surgery, set to be published early next year. In his highly demanding training for his cosmopolitan Miami clientele, Dr. Hoschander studied techniques and skills under internationally renowned experts to develop and hone his artful approach to reconstruction and cosmetic plastic surgery.
Active members of our community, Dr. Hoschander, his wife, and their three sons reside in Woodmere. He is a graduate of Yeshiva University and grew up in West Hempstead, where he attended the Hebrew Academy of Nassau County.
When Dr. Hoschander does a consultation with a prospective patient, he wants it to be two things above all others: thorough and honest. He will first determine your expectations from cosmetic surgery. Then, he will tell you honestly if you can obtain the results you want and how he can help you achieve them.
For Dr. Hoschander, “It’s all about making people feel good about themselves.” Discussing the growing trend in cosmetic surgery among both men and women, he said, “People have become more open and honest about discussing their plastic surgeries.” Dr. Hoschander views injectables, such as Botox and Juvederm, as an extension and adjunct to a patient’s daily makeup routine.
What Dr. Hoschander finds most rewarding is the positive impact he has on the lives of his patients as he helps them look and feel their best. Speaking of reconstructive surgery, he says, “I find it rewarding when people tell me that they look and feel like themselves again. It’s the final step to getting back to normal after suffering a traumatic injury.”
Under Dr. Hoschander’s expert care at its state-of-the-art Woodbury location, Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery offers a comfortable, upscale environment designed to enhance the cosmetic-surgery experience. The operating rooms and recovery suites provide a relaxing and congenial environment for patients and their families. Overnight suites are also available for patients, if they wish.
The new luxury suites for injectable procedures offer patients a pampering experience: a relaxing manicure, a spa featuring the most technologically advanced lasers, and all-natural spray-tanning for a stunning summer glow all year long that is safe for your skin, sans the sun’s harmful effects.
Rhinoplasty (nose surgery) is still one of the most common plastic-surgery procedures. Typically, it is performed to alter the shape and appearance of the nose, but in some cases, rhinoplasty can improve breathing problems as well. Rhinoplasty is one of the few cosmetic surgery procedures that may be appropriate for patients under 18.
Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery offers a variety of non-invasive treatments to rejuvenate the skin, helping you to achieve a radiant, refreshed appearance. Injectable and dermal fillers gently plump skin and combat signs of aging. The practice offers Botox Cosmetic, Perlane, Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, and Sculptra to safely smooth persistent wrinkles, relax facial folds, fill depressions, and add volume to the face. The result is a young, more rested appearance.
Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery is located at 160 Crossways Park Drive North, Woodbury, New York 11797. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Ari S. Hoschander or for additional information, please call 516-364-4200. v
