This content was provided by Dr. Simone "Dr. Armand Simone is a native New Yorker who has been practicing Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Manhattan for more than 35 years. A graduate of Loyola University, Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago, he continued an additional seven years of postgraduate training in New York City, completing full residencies in both General Surgery and Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Simone has worked and taught Plastic Surgery in Italy, France and Russia. He has hosted noted national and international physicians in teaching seminars in the most advanced and current aspects of plastic surgery. Since his entrance into private practice, he has helped train dozens of physicians in formal residency and cosmetic surgery fellowship programs in New York City, teaching the art, science and technical skills of plastic surgery. His role as teacher is both in the operating room and out.Of particular note is his virtually untarnished record for safety and extraordinary patient care as attested by his standing at Lenox Hill Hospital, the community and New York State. Dr. Simone has also earned a reputation for excellence in non-surgical aspects of plastic surgery, instructing graduating plastic surgical preceptors in safe, ethical patient management as well the application and techniques of injectable facial enhancers and skin care.Dr. Simone was one of the first practitioners to routinely use Collagen dermal filler more than 25 years ago and has applied this extensive experience, in conjunction with advanced training, to the newer dermal enhancers such as Botox, Dysport, Restylane, Juvederm, and Sculptra. Dr. Simone, married for 38 years and a father of one son, has always had a great passion for the arts. He is an accomplished painter, having shown his works in art shows and has worked and experimented with different styles including photorealism, impressionism and oriental vignette modes. Though working primarily with oils, he has studied watercolor and pastel techniques. Dr. Simone is an opera and classical music fan with special interest in Baroque music.
