Dr. Abraham specializes in rejuvenation of the face and neck (facelifts, eyelifts, laser skin treatments). He has considerable research and clinical expertise in the latest minimally invasive and non-surgical techniques (BOTOX®, Restylane®, Thermage™, Photofacial™ & Coolsculpting™). Given his dual experience and training, Dr. Abraham is uniquely qualified to shape the nose and ears, while improving function. He provides computer image modeling to his patients, providing a preview of expected results. It is Dr. Abraham’s philosophy and goal to use his talent and the latest technology to help patients achieve balance, so that they may be comfortable on the inside about their appearance on the outside.

Having survived ethnic violence as a child, Dr. Abraham is committed to humanitarian work to make the world a better place. He has been involved with International Medical Mission work for several decades, and sits on the Board for Healing The Children North East. He leads two to three medical teams each year to help children with facial deformities, and has been recognized as a Surgeon Honoree for his dedication and commitment. Dr. Abraham is the current Chairman of the Face to Face Committee, the humanitarian arm of the American Academy of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. He was a recent recipient of the Academy’s 1887 award given to an individual member who has "gone the extra mile," and was named to the Founders Club. Through Face to Face, Dr. Abraham has been involved with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV) and was integral to designing a database to better connect victims of domestic violence who needed facial reconstruction to volunteers surgeons within the Academy. In his new role on the NCADV’s Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery Advisory Council, Dr. Abraham looks forward to further improving the process to help victims of domestic violence overcome physical reminders of abuse so that they may go on to live fulfilling lives.

Dr. Abraham is Associate Director of Otolaryngology at the MidHudson Regional Hospital.  He is Past President of the New York Facial Plastic Surgery Society, and has been elected President of the Dutchess County Medical Society.  He has received numerous awards and has been consistently chosen as a Top Doctor.
