About the Practice

Practice Philosophy

The single most important factor in the success of aesthetic (cosmetic) surgery if the surgeon you select. That is why you need to know about the training and experience of your aesthetic plastic surgeon.

Dr. Steven Lapidus is a board-certified plastic surgeon located in Poughkeepsie, New York who has been in practice for over 20 years. Dr. Lapidus has been a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and a fellow member of the American College of Surgeons for over two decades.

Every patient is important to Dr. Lapidus. He recognizes that cosmetic surgery represents a deep personal commitment for each patient. He endeavors to communicate as precisely as possible, what might be achieved through surgical intervention. Using state of the art technology and equipment, the keen eye of an artist, and the sound judgment of a skilled surgeon, he attempts to create that change.
