- Plastic Surgery
A plastic surgery specialist is a physician with extensive training in the execution of plastic surgery procedures.
Plastic surgery is the use of surgical procedures to rebuild or reshape injured or misshapen body parts. Congenital defects, such as a cleft lip or palate, can be corrected by a plastic surgery specialist. Injuries sustained during auto accidents also may require the services of a plastic surgery specialist. These procedures fall under the category of reconstructive plastic surgery.
The other category of plastic surgery is cosmetic plastic surgery. Plastic surgery specialists often perform procedures like breast augmentation, face lifts, tummy tucks, liposuction, and lip injection as elective surgeries for patients who wish to make aesthetic improvements.
- Surgery of the Hand
Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.
- Plastic Surgery within the Head & Neck

- Breast Implants (Breast Implantation)

Please try to avoid this doctor if possible. The office staff has no courtesy and exhibited poor professionalism. They scheduled something in the morning. We scheduled everything based on that appointment/surgery. In the evening, they called and rescheduled a different time. When asked the rationale behind it, they had no excuses and started giving us weird reason with nasty attitude, lacking adequate professionalism.
I had an eye lift with Dr. Kraft I am so happy! The office staff were very professional, and Dr. Kraft was unbelievably knowledgeable, courteous, & professional. He answered all my questions, and did an amazing job! The incision was meticulous, you can barely see it, and I would consider doing more procedures with him in the future. I will definitely refer all my friends and family to him. Thank you Dr. Kraft!
Dr Kraft is a spectacular plastic surgeon. He is patient, wise and sincere. He listens, doesn't rush and is honest. No hype, no sales pressure--the genuine article. I can't recommend him more. No reason to go to Manhattan when there is a Yale educated, board certified plastic surgeon who doesn't rip you off on Queens Blvd. The King of Queens.
Dr. Kraft is a very good doctor, always answer all my questions. He seats and listening to me.He always giving me good treatment. I have no complaint about him what so ever.
