LAURA & ISAAC PERLMUTTER
COSMETIC PLASTIC SURGERY CENTER
In 2017, Laurie and Ike Perlmutter contributed $5 million to fund the Perlmutter Cosmetic Surgery Center, which functions as a part of the Hansjörg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery at NYU Langone. The contribution has enabled NYU Langone to care for more patients and to expand the care team, including supporting the recruitment of Dr. Rachel Bluebond-Langner, the Laura and Isaac Perlmutter Associate Professor of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, who is one of the country's notable specialists in providing safe, gender-affirming procedures for transgender individuals. Dr. Rachel Bluebond-Langner is part of an initiative that aims to advance healthcare for transgender and gender-nonconforming people.
Dominique Jackson is an actress, author, model, and reality television personality who currently plays a leading role on the television series Pose, which centers around NYC's downtown ball scene in the 1980s, the issues facing the transgender community and also features the largest number of transgender actors playing transgender characters. Dominique Jackson said to Essence, "I'm so proud to be able to share my story with others who might be going through a similar process with their identity. It's been a long road of self-transformation for me, and I'm so grateful for the care I received at NYU Langone with Dr. Rachel Bluebond-Langer, one of the best transgender surgery specialists in the country. I hope that others will feel less alone after hearing about stories like mine."
