Professional Statement:

  • Recognized as an innovator with his work in body image issues with children, adolescents, and teens, Dr. Lukash understands that these age groups may have difficulty in emoting feelings regarding their looks whether congenital, traumatic, or aesthetic. He has used art as a non-verbal vehicle before and after surgery to understand and appreciate their angst.
  • Together with specialists in child psychiatry and art therapy, an analysis of 30 years experience led to a landmark article “Children’s Art as a Helpful Index of Anxiety and Self-Esteem with Plastic Surgery” (Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery: 109:6 May 2002). This authorship led to a writing of the position paper on teenage plastic surgery for the American Society for Plastic Surgeons. Currently Dr. Lukash’s collection is in a traveling exhibit called “Operation Art.”
