Professional Statement:

  • Dr. Shafer is Board Certified in Plastic Surgery and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
  • Dr. David Shafer is trained in all aspects of plastic and reconstructive surgery. However, he specializes in aesthetic surgery. He established Shafer Plastic Surgery in Manhattan with one specific goal – to break down the traditional doctor-patient barrier and create an environment where patients feel comfortable and relaxed. Dr. Shafer treats every patient as if they are family. In fact, many patients comment that talking in his consultation room is like sitting around the kitchen table with good friends.
  • Dr. Shafer has quickly made an impact in New York City and internationally. In 2009, he was featured in W Magazine as a “Beauty Talent” in plastic surgery and as one of the “experts soon to be on your speed dial.”
