Dr. Christine Blaine, a native New Yorker, is a plastic surgeon with offices in both Huntington and Staten Island. She began her medical career by earning a bachelor’s degree in Psychobiology from Binghamton University while working as an Emergency Medical Technician and instructor. It was at this juncture she developed an appreciation for the psychological and emotional facets of patient care. Based on this she believes in treating not only the body but the individual as a whole.
Dr. Blaine has participated in research, most recently concerning a female’s decision making related to breast reconstruction after breast cancer. She is a published author in the Annals of Plastic Surgery and has presented at national meetings including the Northeast Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Of foremost concern for Dr. Blaine is that both her male and female patients feel comfortable with the treatment plan and their entire experience. Her early training in psychobiology has allowed her to gain keen insight into how best to meet their individual needs. She is sensitive to the idea that each patient’s needs, desires and expectations are unique.

I had a breast reduction with Dr. Blaine seven months ago and my experience was outstanding. This procedure was something I had been envisioning for years and Dr Blaine and her staff finally made it a reality. From my first consultation, to the personal phone call Dr Blaine made to my home the night of the surgery, to my last follow up visit, my entire encounter was everything I could have hoped for and more.

Dr. Christine Blaine,
I wanted to say thank you for the work you completed on my son (Austin) within the last month. We rushed to the ER not knowing how deep the cuts in his eyelid were and once you arrived and examined him, as parents we felt at ease with your warm and caring nature.
Holding Austin while you performed the stitches and seeing your steady and confident hand allowed me to also relax.
Thank you for taking care of him and performing the stitches flawlessly.
Happy holidays to you
