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, Editor-in-Chief of Aesthetic Surgery Journal and Editor of the landmark textbook, The Art of Aesthetic Surgery: Principles & Techniques. 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 Botox®, dermal fillers, and chemical peels, further refining his preferred techniques. Additionally, as a faculty member in the Emory University School of Medicine Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Weinstein was an attending surgeon responsible for teaching plastic surgery residents.

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 and defended a thesis to graduate with research honors.

During residency, Dr. Weinstein recognized that a deeper understanding of clinical research methods would allow him to better evaluate the safety and efficacy of new treatments and always remain at the forefront. This insight led Dr. Weinstein to complete a master’s program 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 undertook a clinical research fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and received the Dr. Jerome P. Webster Research Award for his study on the relationship between preoperative expectations and postoperative satisfaction among breast reconstruction patients.

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 two top plastic surgery journals—Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Aesthetic Surgery Journal—and is an Editorial Board member on Aesthetic Surgery Journal.
