Home/Plastic Surgeon in New York City

Meet Dr. Barry M. Weintraub

As a top plastic surgeon in NYC, Dr. Weintraub’s philosophy is less is more. “Results should be conservative and understated with a keen eye toward natural beauty,” he explains. He practices in New York City and East Hampton and specializes in high-quality, detailed cosmetic plastic surgery of the face and body, employing cutting-edge approaches to treatments.

Dr. Weintraub uses the latest minimally invasive, non-surgical and short-incision techniques to provide the maximum benefit to his patients. For example, Dr. Weintraub performs facial plastic surgery, such as facelift and eyelid surgery, by gently suspending tissues and restoring the lost volume of youth with fat transplantation, rather than using unnaturally tight skin traction. In plastic surgery of the nose (rhinoplasty), Dr. Weintraub employs the newest techniques in structural manipulation of cartilage that produce beautifully graceful contours and natural profiles. In post-pregnancy tummy tucks, he uses tedious corset placation to create the natural beauty and small waist of a youthful abdomen.

As a meticulous New York plastic surgeon with Ivy League credentials, Dr. Weintraub is often consulted on difficult cases since his skill set and expertise make him comfortable with every level of challenge. Dr. Weintraub and his staff offer you a warm welcome and invite you to discuss your concerns in a comfortable and educational environment.
