Robert H. Gotkin, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties to certify plastic surgeons, Dr. Robert H. Gotkin is a premier cosmetic surgeon renowned for his expertise in liposculpture, body contouring and aesthetic facial surgery – including the use of lasers, Botox® and filling agents for facial rejuvenation.  

Dr. Gotkin is a pioneer in the use of the FDA-approved Smartlipo™ laser, which is a world apart from traditional liposuction.  Smartlipo (laser lipolysis) is a minimally invasive procedure ideal for treating areas of unwanted fat, such as saddle bags, inner thighs, tummy, love handles, arms, full necks, double chins, upper arm batwings and male breast enlargement (gynecomastia).

Dr. Gotkin also uses Smartlipo to treat more challenging areas, such as the lower legs and ankles, and to produce a flatter, tighter abdomen with "six pack" muscle definition.  With Smartlipo, there is less bruising, less discomfort, less downtime and fewer side effects than traditional liposuction.

Dr. Gotkin is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and an active member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the International Society of Clinical Plastic Surgeons.  He is also a Fellow of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery, and serves on the Medical Council of The Skin Cancer Foundation.

Dr. Gotkin has been named “a Top Doctor in the New York Metropolitan Area” every year since 1998 in the Guide to the Best Doctors in New York (Castle Connolly) and has been named one of America’s Top Surgeons by the National Consumer Research Council.

He is an Attending Plastic Surgeon affiliated with numerous teaching hospitals in Manhattan and on Long Island.  Dr. Gotkin is also the director of a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center at Cosmetique, which is accredited by the American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc.

He has been a source of information for health and science feature articles in The New York Times and Newsday, numerous magazines, as well as a variety of television and radio programs.  Dr. Gotkin is co-author of the book Instant Beauty:  Getting Gorgeous on Your Lunch Break.
