DR. MARCEL SCHEINMAN
BOARD-CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON
Dr. Marcel Scheinman has been a highly respected plastic and reconstructive surgeon for over 20 years with a loyal patient base who depend on him for, not only the finest surgical outcomes, but for the most compassionate care.
“What motivates my work is the response I get from patients.”
Seeing lives change, watching patients become more self-confident…that is why Dr. Scheinman feels so privileged to be able to achieve excellent results for his patients…from simple injectables…to beautiful body or facial aesthetic results…to the most complex reconstructive cases.
“I understand each patient as a human being, one different from all others.”
During each consultation, Dr. Scheinman spends the time necessary to connect with the patient, to discover their expectations and to be sure he can deliver the results they are looking for. He asks and answers a lot of questions and, as his patients will tell you, is honest about the rewards and the risks. He says, “I am not in favor of extreme makeovers. People want to look natural and like their best selves. If they are looking for an outcome I don’t believe in, I can refer them to another New York Plastic Surgeon.”
“I consider myself an educator too. There is so much misinformation on the internet. I want patients to be informed so they can make educated decisions.”
Dr. Scheinman believes that the web has certainly provided lots of information about aesthetic medicine but people become confused with the sheer amount that’s available. Separating fact from myth is a responsibility he takes very seriously.
“I specialize in Mommy Makeovers and Breast Reduction.”
Dr. Scheinman’s specialty is breast surgery of all kinds, including breast reduction.
Mommy Makeovers are primarily for women in their 30’s and 40’s who have had children and now want to enhance their appearance. They come to Dr. Scheinman, asking, “What could I do to get my body shape back?” Time and again, our New York Plastic Surgeon's incredible skills have been able to achieve just that for his very grateful patients.
“I am not the first to try a new technique. It has to be proven before I embrace it. For me, safety is paramount.”
Dr. Scheinman says that, more often than not, the “latest gadget” will be gone in a year. He chooses the most appropriate and proven procedure and method for each patient based on their goals and their anatomy.
“My staff treats every patient like a member of the family. Patients always praise my staff saying they are the nicest group of people in any medical office.”
Family is foremost for Dr. Scheinman. He is devoted to his wonderful wife and four children. As he says, “They are the center of my life.” But his great heart extends beyond his home to his patients as well. He and his staff believe that their patients’ happiness is as important as any results they can achieve.
