LONG ISLAND, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 21, 2014) - Long Island Plastic Surgical Group (LIPSG) has announced the addition of its newest plastic surgeon, Dr. Richard Reish. As part of the LIPSG team, Dr. Reish will be performing a variety of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures, including rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, abdominoplasty, liposuction, facial implants, and breast reconstruction. He looks forward to continuing the LIPSG mission of providing high quality, compassionate surgical care to patients. Dr. Reish will also be seeing patients at LIPSG's newly-established division, New York Plastic Surgical Group, located on Manhattan's Upper East Side.
Dr. Reish earned his undergraduate degree from Tulane University, where he graduated summa cum laude as Valedictorian. He then attended Harvard Medical School and earned his M.D. degree with Honors. Dr. Reish completed his plastic surgery residency in the Harvard Combined Plastic Surgery Program. He served as the Chief Resident of Harvard Plastic Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital.
As noted in LIPSG's blog post, "LIPSG Welcomes Dr. Reish to Team," the inspiration to become a plastic surgeon began when Dr. Reish was 13 years old. His brother had been diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease, and throughout the following nine months of treatment, Dr. Reish did his best to help his brother in his battle with cancer and ultimately get better.
Since watching his brother successfully overcome cancer, Dr. Reish has been passionate about surgery -- to this day, he continues to practice the same compassion, focusing on breast reconstruction and participating in nationally recognized and award-winning research. "From having supported my older brother through his grueling battle with childhood cancer, I am intensely aware of what patients and their families are going through when they are diagnosed with cancer and what they need in their surgeon."
Whether a patient visits LIPSG to cosmetically enhance their appearance or to restore their youthful aesthetics, Dr. Reish strives to offer high quality care and additional emotional support. He recognizes that surgery, despite the reason, can be an intimidating process and does his best to help patients make an informed decision about their care. Dr. Reish will be treating patients at the Garden City and Manhattan locations of LIPSG.
