Wendy Lewis is President of Wendy Lewis & Co. Ltd, Global Aesthetics Consultancy established in 1997 in New York City.  Dubbed “The Knife Coach®” by the media, Lewis is an independent Image Enhancement Consultant.  Her expertise has guided thousands of clients through all forms of cosmetic enhancements from research to recovery throughout the USA and abroad.  Lewis is the author of ten consumer books, including two editions of America’s Cosmetic Doctors & Dentists (Castle Connolly), and her newest title, Plastic Makes Perfect, The Complete Cosmetic Beauty Guide (Orion).  Lewis is also the Co-founder and Editorial Director of MDPUBLISH.COM, a comprehensive medical publishing and marketing group.

Lewis grew up in Forest Hills, New York.  After graduating cum laude from Barnard in 1979 with a B.A. in English after only three years, she attended Fordham Business School.  Subsequently, Lewis managed two successful Manhattan plastic surgery practices for twelve years.  Her intimate work with patients soon led friends and family to seek Wendy’s professional advice about their own cosmetic dilemmas.  The rest, as they say, is history and a unique business was born.

In addition to a busy year-round client schedule in New York, London and Paris, writing is in her blood. Her father served as a correspondent to the Stars & Stripes during World War II. Lewis is a contributor to YOU, the Mail on Sunday, Financial Times, Tatler, Russian Vogue, Medesthetics and other consumer and trade publications.  Lewis serves as an Associate Editor for Aesthetic Buyers Guide and a Contributing Editor to Plastic Surgery Products.  One of her blogs for plasticsurgery.com can be found on her company’s web site: WLBEAUTY.COM. Her newest blog, BEAUTYINTHEBAG.COM, is a joint venture with her teenage daughter.
