Procedures Offered by Dr. Reish

Dr. Reish has extensive training and is experienced in a full range of cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. His specialties include:



Rhinoplasty, or nose surgery, can change the shape and size of the nose for a more refined and balanced appearance. Rhinoplasty can also serve a functional purpose to help improve breathing and sinus issues.



Facelift surgery can rejuvenate your appearance for a more refreshed, relaxed, and youthful look. Dr. Reish is experienced in a variety of facelift techniques, including full-facelift and mid-facelift as well as neck lift surgery.


Breast Surgery

Dr. Reish is highly experienced in a range of breast procedures, including breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, breast revision, and breast reconstruction surgery. His approach to breast surgery includes scar minimizing techniques and treatments.



Many people wish for a more toned stomach, but what if diet and exercise don’t deliver results? Abdominoplasty, commonly known as a tummy tuck, can reduce or eliminate stubborn fat or excess skin for a flatter, tighter midsection.


Liposuction and Fat Transfer

Dr. Reish offers an array of body sculpting procedures to help patients achieve a slimmer, more youthful figure. Liposuction can remove fat deposits from any area of the body. Fat transfer procedures can utilize excess fat to provide volume to the buttocks, face, or breasts.


Non-surgical Rejuvenation

Dr. Reish offers minimally invasive injectable treatments, including BOTOX and dermal fillers. Expertly administered injectables can be used to reduce visible signs of aging, as well as reshape the contours of the face without surgery.
