Dr. Kornstein – A National Opinion Leader & Educator of Surgeons
Andrew N. Kornstein, M.D., plastic surgeon, is distinguished by his expert medical training, honors and expertise. His innate aesthetic sense provides his patients with the most natural and beautiful outcomes. He is renowned as a “super specialist” in breast reconstruction, as well as aesthetic procedures of the breast and body. He also leads the field in non-invasive facial rejuvenation, the ever increasing choice of patients.
In his early training as a general and plastic surgery Resident, at the prestigious Columbia University/St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, Dr. Kornstein met Sydney Coleman, M.D., an innovator in fat grafting techniques who became his teacher and mentor. Because of this relationship, Dr. Kornstein acquired exceptional knowledge of facial aging with respect to bone and soft tissue changes. He then helped develop techniques to reverse these changes using hand-harvested adipose derived stem cells(fat cells) from one’s own body. As the recognized expert in this technique, he wrote the chapter on “Using Volume Augmentation” in the prestigious Encyclopedia of Aesthetic Rejuvenation.
