Confidence prepares us for our daily interactions with the world around us. It helps us become better communicators, manage anxiety, motivate us to achieve our dreams, and even step out of our comfort zones. But sometimes, it is hard to feel good about ourselves. Our bodies undergo many changes, leaving us dissatisfied with our appearance and stripping our confidence. Dr. Gordon Andan is leveraging technology to restore people’s confidence.
Dr. Andan is a board-certified cosmetic surgeon fellowship trained in general cosmetic surgery for breast, face, and body procedures. Dr. Andan is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery and the founder and CEO of New York Surgical Arts. Through the clinic, Dr. Andan has helped patients improve their appearance and achieve their aesthetic goals, especially after childbirth. New York Surgical Arts offers a wide variety of services, including but not limited to arm lifts, tummy tucks, breast lifts, breast augmentation, breast reduction, face lifts, neck lifts, rhinoplasty, and eyelid surgery.
Dr. Andan’s approach to cosmetic surgery, vast knowledge, and passion for what he does makes for exceptional yet realistic results and have made him one of the most sought-after cosmetic surgeons in New York.
Dr. Andan has been in the cosmetic field for over 10 years and has co-authored multiple peer-reviewed journal articles. He started his journey at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons at Harlem Hospital Center and Columbia Presbyterian hospital, where he did his general residency and an NIH postdoctoral research fellowship. Dr. Andan distinguished himself as an outstanding chief resident in the facility, attracting the attention of industry leaders.
After his general residency, Dr. Andan was accepted into one of the country’s most prestigious cosmetic surgery fellowships, where he worked alongside renowned cosmetic surgery leaders. Dr. Andan has worked under Robert Chad Deal, M.D., and Carey Nease, M.D., the former Vice President of the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.

Dr. Andan is also passionate about patient education. He is using this opportunity to shed more light on cosmetic surgery, the different procedures, benefits, and risks. According to him, most people don’t understand cosmetic surgery, and digital media does not do much to help.
Some of the information online is false, which paints an unrealistic picture for society and patients. Dr. Andan hopes to clear up this misunderstanding and help more people get the correct information that will help them make more informed decisions. He regularly contributes to the online community through cosmetic surgery blog posts, RealSelf answers, and plastic surgery articles.
