An investigation by the New York City Medical Examiner's Office has concluded that the death of a 42-year-old Irish woman earlier this year was caused in significant part by face-lift surgery she underwent in the Manhattan office of a doctor who has repeatedly been sued for malpractice.

The woman, Kathleen Kelly Cregan, who came to New York from Ireland to have the cosmetic surgery while keeping it a secret from her family, went into cardiac arrest early on March 15, hours after surgery at the Central Park South offices of Dr. Michael Evan Sachs. Mrs. Cregan was rushed to St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital Center and died two days later, when her family decided to take her off life support.

''The surgery was a significant contributing factor to her death,'' said Ellen Borakove, a spokeswoman for the medical examiner. The office, which spent two months investigating the death, did not elaborate.

Dr. Sachs has settled 33 malpractice lawsuits in recent years, an unusually high number, according to doctors in several fields of practice and consumer advocates who concentrate on the medical profession.

Yesterday, Peter Parcher, a lawyer for Dr. Sachs, said he disagreed with the medical examiner's findings. ''It would appear beyond all doubt that Dr. Sachs performed the operation perfectly,'' Mr. Parcher said. ''It would also appear that Mrs. Cregan was a completely healthy person. That evidence does not in any way support the medical examiner's conclusion.''

Mrs. Cregan's death has attracted attention both because of Dr. Sachs's record, and because of the unusual circumstances surrounding her trip to New York.

Mrs. Cregan told her husband, Liam, a farmer and plumber in Limerick, that she was leaving for a business course in Dublin. Until he was notified by the Irish embassy that Mrs. Cregan was on life support at a hospital in New York, Mr. Cregan was unaware that she had left the country. Mrs. Cregan's family has said it believes she planned to surprise her husband with her new look.

In Ireland, several politicians have expressed concern over the way Dr. Sachs marketed himself there.

Mrs. Cregan, her family said, learned about Dr. Sachs by reading a flattering story about him in the Irish newspaper The Sunday Independent, which detailed a face-lift Dr. Sachs had performed on an Irish woman named Helen Donaghy.

Dr. Sachs provided the face-lift to Mrs. Donaghy free, in exchange for her agreeing to participate in the Sunday Independent article.

The article did not mention the number of lawsuits against Dr. Sachs or note that he had been banned by the professional conduct unit of the New York State Department of Health from performing complex nasal surgery without the supervision of another surgeon.

Members of Mrs. Cregan's family have said she was unaware of Dr. Sachs's record.

A Department of Health spokesman said the agency would neither confirm nor deny whether it was investigating Dr. Sachs's handling of the case.
