Dr. Mark H. Weinstein is a an experienced cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon who brings more than 35 years experience to his private practice in New Haven as well as his role as an attending physician at Yale-New Haven Hospital. His training includes an eight-year surgical residency at the University of California, Los Angeles. His vast cosmetic expertise encompasses rejuvenating procedures such as facelifts, browlifts, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), rhinoplasty, abdominoplasty, otoplasty (ear surgery) and breast augmentation. He also offers body contouring procedures including breast reductions, liposuction and skin tightening following bariatric weight-loss surgery. He is skilled in non-surgical options such as Botox and facial fillers to create a more youthful look.
He approaches his cosmetic work with care and sensitivity focused on helping patients achieve their aesthetic goals while establishing realistic expectations and results. “Cosmetic surgery is particularly rewarding work because you are taking a healthy person and helping them make a change that inevitably makes them feel more confident,” he says.
Dr. Weinstein is also skilled in numerous reconstructive procedures for cancer patients, repairing facial trauma after accidents or cancer and upper extremity hand surgery.
Dr. Weinstein is committed to training the next generation of plastic surgeons and engaging in medical philanthropy. Since 2007 he has provided free surgeries to more than 800 patients globally through Changing Children’s Lives (, a nonprofit he founded to bring life-changing procedures such as cleft lip and palate repairs to children and adults in impoverished developing countries. During the last six years he has organized and transported skilled surgical teams to countries including Thailand, Honduras, Brazil, Colombia, Vietnam, Uganda and China. In his role as an assistant clinical professor at Yale, he is actively engaged training surgical residents, who often join him on Changing Children’s Lives missions. “I consider this work like an annuity; it is giving to the next generation of doctors who are having experiences and training they might not otherwise receive doing some very rewarding work.”
