Dr. Ryan Neinstein is a highly respected and experienced plastic surgeon based in New York City. He is also the founder of Neinstein Plastic Surgery, a practice that specializes in helping mothers address physical changes in their bodies after pregnancy. Throughout his experiences, Dr. Neinstein has proven to be a well-regarded doctor in the field and remains a top choice by other plastic surgeons for his clinical and academic expertise.
However, what truly separates Neinstein from others, is how he makes a difference in the lives of his patients and the wider community. The following blog post will consider some specific ways Neinstein and his team make a measurable difference.
Doctors worldwide make a difference by researching and contributing to the ongoing development of innovations and treatments. Like those before him, Dr. Neinstein has introduced several techniques that have helped advance the field of plastic surgery, improving patient care.
In a recent example, Neinstein and the team at Neinstein Plastic Surgery used a combination of subcutaneous heparin and intravenous tranexamic acid in outpatient liposuction procedures. The study aimed to reduce surgical blood loss and the risk of blood clots during plastic surgery procedures. The study found that a combination of subcutaneous heparin and a standard dose of intravenous tranexamic acid reduced the risk of blood clots and blood loss during the procedure and expedited patient healing. The team plans to continue conducting studies to confirm the effectiveness of this same combination, thereby setting a standard across the field of cosmetic surgery as a whole.
Other contributions to the field include authoring studies including Liposuction in Operative techniques in Plastic, Aesthetic, and Reconstructive Surgery, Liposuction in Continuing Medical Education, and Liposuction of the Back, Flanks, and Hips.
Doctors can also make a difference by advocating for their patients regarding their individual needs and broader healthcare issues. Historical examples suggest this includes advocating for better access to care, improved treatment options, or greater support for patients with specific medical conditions.
Dr. Neinstein notes that at the beginning of his career, there was a very set pathway that all young surgeons would follow, which was hierarchical and revolved more around the surgeon than the patient. Neinstein aimed to reshape this by demonstrating a commitment to mental health and a sense of identity for the patient. Although unconventional at the time, Ryan Neinstein has shown that putting the patient first is key to successful plastic surgery outcomes.
Another avenue where Dr. Neinstein is making a difference is by serving as a role model for his patients and the larger community. In addition to his practice's overall commitment to excellence, Ryan Neinstein encourages his medical practice to be more than that. Instead, his team's mission is to promote moral and civic excellence through their charity program, "Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good." Under this program, Neinstein Plastic Surgery is giving back to the community by supporting organizations such as The Archer's Project.
Neinstein Plastic Surgery was proud to participate in The Archer's Project's 3rd annual Backpack Drive, which provides school supplies to underprivileged children in low-income schools in New York City. This year, the organization aimed to fill 200 backpacks, and Neinstein Plastic Surgery made a generous donation that helped to fill close to 100 of these backpacks. In addition to their donation, staff members also donated their time to help pack and distribute the backpacks.
Although just one example, these initiatives allow Dr. Neinstein's practice to give back to the community by using their resources and expertise to impact the world positively.
As a fourth way that this doctor is making a difference, clients have noted Dr. Neinstein's commitment to educating the public. With the mommy makeover core to his practice, Neinstein has spent a significant amount of time in interviews and other promotional avenues, sharing the mental health 1https://www.ft.com/content/03b6968a-5e7f-48a2-875b-b1d254de76d3 benefits of these cosmetic procedures.
As a father himself, Dr. Neinstein recognizes the struggles mothers face once they've gone through pregnancy and the birthing process and aims to educate the rest of the world on the importance of making moms confident in their bodies once again.
