Ko Plastic Surgery has been offering superior surgical and nonsurgical techniques to enhance the beauty of its customers since opening in January.
The practice offers a wide range of services from face lifts and eyelid surgeries, to tummy tucks and breast implants.Dr. John Ko also uses state of the art “laser resurfacing” technology to rid the body of unsightly birthmarks and other blemishes.
In addition, Ko offers non surgical treatments, like Botox and Restylane, to rejuvenate the aging skin, and a full line of skincare products for patients to use before and after surgery.
For people recovering from an accident or illness, Ko offers reconstructive surgery to help patients resume life the way they are accustomed to living it.
While there are many plastic surgeons in Queens, Dr. Ko is one of the few to speak fluent Mandarin—a vital skill for a surgeon to have in the diverse neighborhood of Elmhurst. But what sets him apart most is his commitment to his community.
“I grew up down the street from where I work,” Ko said. “Sure, I had the option of joining a practice in Manhattan, and that would have been fine. But I thought it was important to return to my first home, see old friends, and help a community I’m part of.”
Dr. Ko boasts an impressive set of credentials.He received his undergraduate degree from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his medical degree and doctorate from Boston University. He trained in both general surgery and plastic surgery at Mount Sinai Medical Center in Manhattan. He remains a faculty member there as well as at Elmhurst Hospital.
Ko added: “Plastic surgery was considered nonreachable 10 or 20 years ago, but today I think it’s become something everybody can use to add new optimism to their life.”
