Education and Training

Dr. Weinstein graduated from Cornell University summa cum laude and earned his medical degree with honors from NYU School of Medicine. Dr. Weinstein then went on to complete an intensive six-year residency in plastic surgery at Weill Cornell and Columbia University Medical Centers of New York–Presbyterian Hospital, where he had the opportunity to learn aesthetic and reconstructive surgery from distinguished faculty, including Dr. David Hidalgo. In his final year of residency, Dr. Weinstein was selected to serve as Administrative Chief Resident for the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship

Following residency, Dr. Weinstein elected to pursue an additional year of subspecialty training in advanced and minimally invasive aesthetic surgery at Emory Aesthetic Center under the leadership of world-renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Foad Nahai. During this prestigious fellowship, endorsed by The Aesthetic Society, Dr. Weinstein performed numerous aesthetic surgeries of the face, breast, and body and nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedures using neuromodulators (Botox®, Dysport®), dermal fillers (Restylane®, Juvéderm®), and peels, further refining his expert techniques. Additionally, as a faculty member in the Emory University School of Medicine Division of Plastic and Reconstruction Surgery, Dr. Weinstein had the privilege of training the next generation of plastic surgeons.

Research

Dr. Weinstein has conducted extensive basic science and clinical research to advance the field of plastic surgery. After college, Dr. Weinstein spent a year in the Laboratory of Bioregenerative Medicine and Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College studying different ways to bioengineer vascularized tissues for wound reconstruction. As a member of the Honors Program at NYU School of Medicine, Dr. Weinstein studied novel therapies to improve wound healing in the Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery Laboratories.

During residency, Dr. Weinstein recognized that a deeper understanding of clinical research methods would enable him to always remain at the forefront of cutting-edge treatments for his patients. This led Dr. Weinstein to complete a master’s degree at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health, where he was awarded the Robert P. Abelson Prize for Excellence. At the same time, Dr. Weinstein pursued a clinical research fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and received the Dr. Jerome P. Webster Research Award for his study on patient satisfaction after breast reconstruction.

Scientific Writing

Dr. Weinstein has authored over 40 research articles in peer-reviewed journals and textbook chapters on aesthetic surgery. He has been invited to present his work at both regional and national plastic surgery meetings and honored with multiple awards, including the coveted American Society of Plastic Surgeons Top Paper award and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal’s Best Overall Cosmetic Paper award for his clinical studies with Dr. Hidalgo. Dr. Weinstein currently serves as a peer-reviewer for the three top plastic surgery journals—Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Aesthetic Surgery Journal, and Aesthetic Plastic Surgery—and is an Editorial Board member on Aesthetic Surgery Journal.
