Surgical Genius

“It seems to me, that in discussing Dr. Weintraub, we are necessarily discussing surgical genius or at least the work of one such virtuoso. He is equipped with a kind of dual aesthetic judgment and technical ability, which is to say, that the good doctor is able to keenly observe and correct minute details while accounting for the overall aesthetic presentation and never sacrificing one for the other. He’s not only a keenly skilled technician but also a more generally talented artist. While most surgeons fall victim to perceiving in a very mechanistic way, causing a loss of resolution in the overall work, Dr. Weintraub seems to work in greater detail but with a conscious fluidity that allows him to execute what he, in agreement with his patients, find aesthetically pleasing.

As an artist myself with a recognized career in music, I imagined that I would be among the more difficult of the surgeon’s clients. Having studied visual art and being a recognizable image of peoples’ expectations (i.e., when fans see me), I knew immediately that the work to be done would be under great scrutiny and would require great subtlety. Despite all of my reservations, I knew if any surgeons would find themselves able, it would take someone as masterful as Dr. Weintraub to pull it off.

Today, no one has remotely noticed that I have undergone surgical rhinoplasty. Instead, people continue to stop and stare as they had before and those closest to me admire the symmetry, lines, and angles of my face. We all fall subject to our own vanity, it’s undeniable not to acknowledge that appearances give us an edge in today’s highly competitive world. Dr. Weintraub’s work is a brilliant paradox in that it documents a phenomenal improvement but in a wildly subtle manner.”

The “Da Vinci” of Plastic Surgeons

“Dr. Weintraub is the “Da Vinci” of plastic surgeons. I love my facelift and I’m recommending him to my friends. His skillful eye restores and sculpts youth and beauty by discussing all options available without any pressure. He not only performed my facelift but improved other areas of my face that we both agreed needed improvement….

I was starting to feel self conscious about my appearance, as unlike years ago, I was now the oldest person in my department and was getting tired of people telling me I looked tired first thing in the morning, even when I wasn’t!

I was looking for a natural looking uplift that wouldn’t appear obvious I had work done, but instead would look like I just came back from a long vacation and had that refreshed, “you look great!” appearance again, and most of all, I didn’t want to look different…. The same “me”, but ten years younger.
Dr. Weintraub’s approach and philosophy appealed to me. When I discussed my concerns, at first, I asked for restylane, as I didn’t have much in the way of cheek bones and thought that would do it. It looked great, but he did tell me that if I wanted a permanent fix, surgery was the way to go, as I was no longer in my 40’s but well past late 50’s.

As with any surgery, I visited 2 other plastic surgeons, one recommend for his low prices. Both had lower prices, but when I saw the before and after photos of past patients, well, to be totally frank, I wanted to run out of their offices! Their patients faces were so “tugged” and unnatural looking. In one photo of an eyelid lift, the woman looked “startled”….

I knew neither surgeon was for me and price should never be a determining factor when deciding on something as precious as your physical appearance, especially your face!
I went back to Dr. Weintraub and discussed my experience with the other surgeons. He made some suggestions and after looking through books of before and after photos of his previous patients, I knew Dr. Weintraub was the only surgeon I would let perform my facelift, and I scheduled my appointment.
The day of my surgery the nurse who greeted me couldn’t have put me more at ease. Her kind and caring manner made me feel I was in the best of hands.

Dr. Weintraub went over everything with me beforehand and made sure I had no additional questions. His delicate and caring manner was exactly what I was looking for as I was confident that I would come out looking natural and not overdone or fake.

Surgery went great, and after following his post op instructions I was up and about and loving my new refreshed look! I even had him fix my nose that before drooped when I smiled, and that little adjustment also made such a difference and made me look younger and my profile so much better! I love my nose now!!
We also discussed having a mole removed on the side of my eye. He was right, removing it made my eyes look much more appealing and bright!!

So what more can I say about the kind Dr. Weintraub and his staff…. Wonderful!! My facelift was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, it not only improved my image, but also my self confidence. Best of all, no one says I look tired anymore, even when I am!”

A great Transformation

“It is very gratifying to decide to improve one’s looks and to have that decision prove to be a good one. Even better than good. Great. I had a neck lift with Dr. Weintraub. Before, my neck hung over my shirt collar like it was reaching to shake hands with my tie. Now when I dress in the morning, I see the neck I had 20 years ago. A great transformation.”

As Nice as he is Talented

“Thanks to Dr. Weintraub for fixing bad results from two procedures I had in Europe and UAE with surgeons who said they specialized in plastic surgery but nearly ruined my face, leaving me thinking there wasn’t any solution until I found Dr. Weintraub on the internet. I sent photos and spoke to Dr. Weintraub who is as nice as he is talented! He was super compassionate and suggested certain surgical techniques to correct the surgery I had before, and I was confident I had found the right doctor to improve things! I travelled to New York in March and had surgery two days later, with all my appointments made for me by Dr. Weintraub’s staff who are very helpful, scheduling my appointments around a parade on Fifth Avenue so I didn’t get stuck in the traffic. Dr. Weintraub came to visit every day at my hotel across the street and called and emailed after I returned home to make sure I have healed well. I am absolutely thrilled and super satisfied with my experience. They were so instrumental making it all happen seamlessly and successfully, so from the bottom of my heart, I thank him sincerely.”

I look good from every angle

“I had a rhinoplasty with Dr. Weintraub and am very, very happy with my new nose! He took a lot of time with me during my consultation and answered all my questions and showed me many before and after pictures. I liked that his patients all had noses that were appropriate to their faces, not like he only knew how to make one kind of nose. I also spoke to one of his previous patients who said he did a secondary rhinoplasty on her, which apparently is more difficult than doing a primary rhinoplasty. She is very happy with his work and so am I. I now look good from every angle! He also did many followup visits with me, and taking off the splint and then the tape he did with absolute gentleness, and he did many more followup visits to ensure that I was healing well. I recommend his skill and personable bedside manner and his medical professionalism to everyone.”

I could not have asked for a better outcome

“I’m a patient of Dr. Weintraub. Last year I had my upper and lower eyes done as well as a chin implant. Professional, meticulous, amazing aesthetic sense, kind, concerned and patient are some of the words I would use to describe him. I was 44 at the time and my results were simply terrific, very subtle and natural. I conducted extensive due dilgence on plastic surgeons in NYC. I encourage anyone comtemplating this serious step to do so and after completion, it is highly probable that you will end up at Dr. Weintraub’s office like I did. Not one single person asked me the proverbial “Did you get work done?”, they do, however, ask me how I never seem to age. I could not have asked for a better outcome.”

Dr. Weintraub is an incredible surgeon

“I am 19 years old and I have wanted rhinoplasty since middle school. My nose was my biggest insecurity and my parents finally let me start to see doctors after I finished college.

I found Dr. Weintraub online and left the consultation with my dad with a surgery booked the next 3 weeks. Dr. Weintraub is not only an incredible surgeon, but he is SO kind, is extremely patient with all of the questions I had, and is so easy to talk to. His staff is also amazing and his office is beautiful. During the consultation, he wrote down everything I didn’t like, so that during surgery he makes sure to hit each point. I also brought in pictures a week before surgery to show him what I like and dislike in other noses. He does not break noses which made me feel more comfortable too.

The day before my surgery I almost backed out because I was so nervous but I am so glad I didn’t. I had my surgery done in his 5th Ave location so it was private and not in a crazy hospital. I had 0 pain after surgery and didn’t have to take the pain killers once. My bruising went away after 5-6 days, and my cast was off within a week. I had a million questions to ask with each visit after surgery and he took the time to answer each one.”

Dr. Weintraub is probably the most sincere and respectful person I know

“Hands down, Dr. Weintraub is the only surgeon I will turn to for any procedure. After having undergone breast augmentation with gorgeous results, and having received regular Botox treatments that have consistently exceeded my expectations, I can say I am a true testament to Dr. Weintraub’s exceptional talent. He is a master of medicine with an intuitive understanding of beauty, and he works wonders by merging these two areas of expertise. Dr. Weintraub is also probably the most sincere and respectful person I know. Undergoing elective surgery puts one through a very physically and emotionally vulnerable period. Dr. Weintraub and his wonderful staff members made sure to provide a very secure environment where my comfort and dignity was top priority. I feel very fortunate to be under the care of Dr. Weintraub and his entire office.”
