Nicole Psomas, PT,MS, CLT/MLD is a licensed New York and New Jersey Board Certified Physical Therapist and certified Lymphedema Therapist. She graduated with a Masters Degree in Physical Therapy and Health & Science from Thomas Jefferson University in 2003. After graduation she moved to New York City and was hired at the “Top Hospital” NY Presbyterian Hospital Weill Cornell Medical Center... where she works to date.
In the year 2010, she made the decision to have an elective cosmetic procedure done with New York City Plastic Surgeon, Dr. David Shafer, MD. With minimal information on rehabilitation after cosmetic plastic surgery, she instinctually used the skills practiced on a daily basis to facilitate healing and improve her appearance. Dr. Shafer was astounded by her results and asked her to share the secrets for a fabulous recovery. This sparked a referral service where, to date, she’s been treating his patients, implementing techniques and educating individuals on how to take recovery into their own hands. She has developed her own unique recipe for recovery she calls "After The Cut"..."The Psomas Method." She is now the first in her field, a pioneer, in recovery after cosmetic plastic surgery. She has written a book titled "After The Cut: How to Prepare for and Recover From Cosmetic Plastic Surgery." It will hit the shelves February 2019.
Nicole Psomas, PT,MS, CLT/MLD has continued her education, taking courses to advance her skills, and developing a protocol specific to the elective plastic surgery population. Her professional memberships include: American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), National Lymphedema Network (NLN), The Hellenic Medical Society of New York, Hellenic-American Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals, Daughters of Penelope and an Affiliate Member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Nicole understands the journey a patient will embark on after surgery… physically and psychologically. Because this transformative time is a very sensitive one, the confidentiality and discretion she maintains, are amongst the highest factors for ensuring her great reputation. Over the past several years, she has treated patients from all over the world, from high profile executives to Hollywood celebrities. The unique perspective of being a clinician and patient has allowed her to offer the skills and support the patient has needed to achieve the best results possible.
