Absolutely AWESOME!!! Lower Body Lift with Fleur de Lis (no lipo) Arm Lift -Dr.Ryan Neinstein NYC

From our initial consultation I knew I found a Surgeon who was a step above the rest. After a massive weight loss, I knew I would require multiple surgeries, and I knew Dr.Neinstein was the Physician who would lead me on my Journey. He was enthusiastic,confident, attentive, positive, reassuring, and informative throughout.I scheduled a lower boby lift. Prior to surgery he was ALWAYS available to answer any questions or concerns. The surgery was life changing! My formerly flabby body was transformed, it was tight and right!!! The results were nothing short of amazing, flat belly, perky booty, I never inagined my body could like it does, but Doctor Neinstein had the vision from our first meeting. Three months later, he did an arm lift, as well as a breast lift and facial fillers...Again nothing short of AMAZING from beginning to end! I look better now at age 46 than I did in my 20's....and Yes, I confidently wore a bikini for the first time ever!! If you are looking for the BEST PLASTIC Surgeon, look no more, you found him with Dr. Neinstein!

What a difference a YEAR makes!

Well I just realized that tomorrow is my 1 year anniversary. This time last year I was counting down to my surgery.. I can honestly say this is when my real life began! I was liberated from my suit of flab, and the true me emerged! I am finally able to celebrate my body, and I have done so by completing 2 half-marathons, one mini-triathlon, and a Century bike ride (100 miles). I am truly in love with my body, flaws and all.....The scars are just reminders of my journey, and I embrace each one of them.... To all the strong, sexy, ladies on this board, I just want to say "YES YOU CAN"...... If you can dream it, you can achieve it!!!

One Year Anniversary

Reflections for the NEW YEAR!!!

Well, another year is about to come to an end.... I feel like the year 2013 was the year of my rebirth! I underwent a massive body overhaul in 2013, and feel like the life I was meant to live finally began. I have been able to manage my 100 lb. weight loss through diet and exercise for the past 20 years, at 5'5 my heaviest weight was close to 230 lbs. today I am 127 lbs.

Even with all the aesthetic issues associated with MWL ( and I had EVERY issue, flab, cellulite, stretchmarks, and an endless amount of skin!), I still LOVED my body, Loved it for being STRONG, for allowing me to run 40 miles a week, to swim, to bike, and to lift weights...I loved my body for being healthy, however I was not as confident as I pretended to be. I always had a fear of my arms being seen above my elbows, or reaching up and having someone see my belly, or being intimate with the lights shining brightly!

Jump ahead to Nov 28th 2012, my surgery date, the day Dr. Neinstein changed my life, and gave me back my self confidence!
2013 has been a dream come true! More challenges, more positive changes, more self confidence....
We all list the cost of our surgeries, but here is how I look at it, loving the skin you live in is PRICELESS!!!

I recently took a trip to Finland, and they have a HUGE Spa and sauna tradition.... ALL NUDE, not a towel or bathing suit in sight. Prior to surgery, the thought of this would have sent me back to my hotel room to cry over one more amazing experience I was to ashamed to participate in, well not this time!
I stripped down, jumped in and felt AMAZING, not self conscious at all....in fact my dream was once to look OK, for someone who had MWL.....But I don't look OK, I look PRETTY DAMN GOOD!!!! ( At least I think so, I'm not 27, I'm 47!)

Wishing all my dear ladies a New Year filled with Heath ,Joy, and Self-Love!!!


Finally I have reached my dream weight and measurements! My dream was to get under 125, and maintain that number, well....I now weigh 124 ( 105 lb total weight loss)!!!! Current measurements 36-26-35.
This has been a very difficult few months for me, after a LONG battle I lost my precious Father on February 5th. He fraught like a warrior until he inhaled his last breath. I am blessed that inherited that quality from him.
I am now training for a full marathon, which I will run in his honor! I pray I have the continued strength to accomplish this goal!

Scars after 16 months

I never thought I would be posting any more pictures at this point, however I realized that my scars have become practically invisible at this point. It is so amazing, Dr. Neinstein is the most amazing surgeon I have ever met!

The " MAGIC'" of Filler!

A face lift is definitely in my future...100lb weight loss+ years of smoking+ years of sun worshiping= one hot mess of sagging, bagging, and the creases usually reserved for the elderly. I am hoping that with my current filler regiment, I can postpone the inevitable for a few years! So far I am THRILLED with the results!

Dr.Neinstein's NEW ( and AWESOME) Website has a FAMILIAR FACE!!!!

Back in January, I received an E-mail fro my surgeon asking if I would participate in a photo-shoot for the new website he was creating to coincide with the opening of his new office in NYC.. I was not too sure, but he explained the concept. He was using 3 actual patients as his "MODELS", in a very natural, editorial style shoot....I of course agreed. The shoot was in February, and if you remember it was a BRUTAL winter....The shoot began at 5AM and continued until 6PM, at various locations in NYC...The NY Public Library, Williamsburgh Brooklyn, Grand Central Station, Soho, and DUMBO. It was a LONG, COLD SHOOT, we were standing in ice and snow, but from the photos you would never know...
This week the WEBSITE went live...it looks FANTASTIC! If you take a look, I am the photo after Dr.Neinstein, in the black and white outfit ( I am standing in front of the NY Public Library). I am THRILLED with the final outcome, and it was great to see meet his other patients... The site is:

Sorry, my computer froze and I can't delete my previous comment!! Anyway, I LOVE your results and you look AMAZING! I have lost a massive amount of weight too and need several procedures as well and I'm going to schedule a consult with Dr Neinstein. Do you think you could do a cost breakdown of the procedures you got? Also, I noticed you had loose skin on your thighs in the before picture (I do too!!!)... did this improve with the LBL?

Thank you so much..I really appreciate your kind words! I have to give all the credit to Dr. Neinstein, he really did a spectacular job, I feel like I won the lottery every day! So you are also a MWL patient? It is so disappointing to put in the hard work, lose the weight, and still be unhappy with your body. I remember I was just hoping for an improvement, and I never dreamed I could look normal, but now I not only feel normal, most days I feel amazing! I still have excess skin on my inner thighs, that would take another procedure and I really am enjoying my new body, flabby inner thighs and all! ( I will probably address them in the future) The LBL definitely improved the front and lateral thighs though. Are you in the NYC area? Have you been on any consults yet? Dr. Neinstein offers complimentary consults, I hope you meet with him and find him as awesome as I do!

Sorry, forgot the prices! There is a 15% discount for multiple procedures even if they are done at different times. LBL is $14,000, BL/BA with silicone implants as well as a repair of the pocket ( from my old implants, one was falling into my armpit!) is around $13,000, and all fillers are $700.00 except Voluma, which is $900 per syringe.

Truly the best transformation that I've seen on here :)) you're pics may be just the incentive I need to trim up my diet as we have the same shape (I've gained a few pounds since surgery and should be working on toning up the hips and butt). As for the fillers, I have just been debating that the last couple of days. Is it costly? You look absolutely fantastic. Congrats!

Thanks SO much for your amazing compliment! It means a lot coming from you, you looked hot before, and you look BLAZING HOT in your afters! I LOVE LOVE LOVE filler! I am trying to postpone a face lift as long as possible, luckily I get a really good result with filler alone. My PS charges $700 per syringe, and I get 2 syringes every 4-5 months. It adds up, but for me, it's worth every dollar!

You are HOT HOT HOT!!! NO I'm not gay....but WOW!!! Not only a beautiful new body but a beautiful face to go with it. I do not think it is time yet for your face lift...you are looking toooo good! What strength, go getter attitude and self love you have. I hope one day to be like you. For me it is a long journey to self love and thinking i am important enough to take care of myself instead of always taking car of every one else and leaving myself in the dust. Guilt is my middle name.

Now it is time to celebrate your accomplishment, and enjoy the body you worked so hard for. I am proud of you, and am so excited for your upcoming journey....you deserve to LOVE the skin you live in!

Thanks! :-) I need a serious breastlift before they reach the floor hahaha!!! I need an anchor lift with possible implants to match my new belly. I've research many doc with many credentials but lacked the skills. I'm still searching. Bariatric life sent me your link and I was amazed. So I'll be checking him out. As soon as I find a doctor I will post pics

I just called. They won't do email consult only in person and is $250.00 consult fee. Breastlift $8,000 to 12,000 out of my budget :'( :'( :'(..I ask if he had more pics in the office but she didn't sound too sure. Did like what I read about moving tissue around to make it look like the pt had an implant.
  • Reply
Yes...he charges for consults, but he spends a LOT of time during consults. He really has the skills when it comes to breast lifts without implants! I remember how I fussed that I did NOT want a lift, boy am I glad he persuaded me!! He is definitely not cheap, but for me it was worth it! I'm sure you will find an awesome Doc that fits your budget!

You don't have implants?!!!! Just a lift??!!!

I have NO breast tissue!!! :( I started with saline implants, (I had them done about 17 years ago), my right breast implant started to migrate into my armpit, it was REALLY uncomfortable. Dr. Neinstein had to revise my breast pocket, and swap out the old saline implants with moderately sized silicone implants. It took a few months for me to LOVE my results, but now a little more than a year later, I am still ecstatic!! They look better than I ever could have imagined...and the vertical scar I was SO worried about is just about invisible.

He did a really good job. I love your result. Thanks for the clarification :-)

Thanks girl! He really is a "bad ass" surgeon! With all that surgery I was very lucky not to require a single revision...I'm 47 years old now, so i am thinking I will probably need a face lift in my early 50's, unless I can get away with fillers and hopefully some non-surgical procedures! Only time will tell... but your eyes and belly look fantastic! Your Doc did a great job as well!
