A message from Dr. Kevin Tehrani & Aristocrat Plastic Surgery
Dear present and prospective patients:
The emergency order signed by Mayor DeBlasio not to have elective surgery in hospitals or ambulatory surgery centers goes into effect on Friday. I have decided to stop all elective cosmetic surgery as of yesterday in both our Manhattan and Great Neck office based surgery suites until further notice. We have made our operating room and equipment available in the possibility of need in these trying times.
We have applied to receive testing kits and to be a testing center if necessary as needed for our patients. We have also made our urgent services available to noncosmetic emergencies such as lacerations to give our emergency rooms a break and allow them to deal with more pressing matters. Moreover, we have also increased availability of our Super immune drips, which to aid in immunity against coronavirus.
Stay safe and healthy!
Thank you, as always, for your continued loyalty. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Kevin Tehrani, MD , F.A.C.S.

Implementing best practices in our operating rooms and exam rooms in order to minimize exposures to respiratory pathogens for both practitioners and patients. In addition to our high level disinfection protocol and typical aseptic and hygiene standards, we are asking patients to adhere to recommended CDC and WHO standards for hand hygiene.
- Wiping the office common area counters and door handles/knobs with disinfectant throughout the day.
- Wiping restroom counters, handles/knobs, and light switches with disinfectant throughout the day.
- Hand sanitizer is available at the front desk area.
- We have removed all magazines, reading materials, and other objects that may be handled and shared by patients in the waiting area to limit any potential transmission of the virus.
Please wash or sanitize your hands according to CDC and WHO standards just prior to entering the exam room and do not handle your phone after hand washing. We appreciate your diligence as hand hygiene is the first line of defense and is generally considered the single most important procedure for prevention.
