About

Bio

Dr. Pastorek is one of the world’s most recognized and experienced Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgeons and has practiced Facial Plastic Surgery in New York for more than three decades. He received his medical degree and surgical training at the University of Illinois and the University of Illinois Hospitals in Chicago, where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. Although he is dedicated to his private Facial Plastic Surgery practice, Dr. Pastorek is also a highly respected medical educator and teacher. For over two decades, he has volunteered one day a week to a facial plastic surgery clinic to educate residents. He feels that teaching young doctors “finds the soul of the surgeon,” and it is “vital to give back knowledge and share wisdom with the profession in order to complete the circle.” His peers have honored him with elections to “The Best Doctors in America” and “America’s Top Doctors” every year since the inception of these guides, which highlight the finest in American medicine. W Magazine listed Dr. Pastorek as one of the five best rhinoplasty surgeons in the world. Town and Country Magazine named him one of the “Country’s Best Cosmetic Surgeons.” He has received both the “Patient’s Choice” and “Compassionate Doctor” certifications, awarded by patients to less than 3% of the nation’s 720,000 physicians.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
