Randall Feingold, M.D. - Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, PC
Randall S. Feingold, M.D., founding and managing partner of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, PC, is a plastic surgeon practicing in Long Island, New York since 1994. Dr. Feingold is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and specializes in aesthetic surgery of the face, breast and body as well as state-of-the-art post-mastectomy breast reconstruction.
Dr. Feingold, a renowned expert in breast reconstruction and microsurgery, utilizes all of the most advanced techniques to provide the most elegant solution possible for each patient. He has been an early leader in offering and refining natural tissue breast reconstruction including DIEP, SIEA, TUG and GAP flaps in breast cancer and BRCA gene mutation patients. He frequently sees patients referred for flap reconstruction to improve upon unsatisfactory attempts at implant reconstruction. Dr. Feingold also offers the full spectrum of implant-based options including the one-step direct-to-implant technique, form-stable implants and the latissimus dorsi flap. He performs prepectoral implant reconstruction in select primary mastectomy patients with suitable soft tissue coverage, and has converted patients from subpectoral to prepectoral implant placement to manage animation deformity and pain associated with submuscular implants. Dr. Feingold recommends implant exchange for women with textured implant surfaces who are concerned about the rare association with breast implant associated ALCL. Patient satisfaction has earned Dr. Feingold sixteen Patient’s Choice Awards since 2008. For his leadership in this field, Dr. Feingold was honored by the American Cancer Society with the 2007 Physician of Distinction Award and serves on the Board of Directors for the American Cancer Society's Eastern Division.
Dr. Feingold is a co-founder of BreastReconstruction.org, a comprehensive web resource for women facing mastectomy. He has lectured on and presented innovative techniques in breast reconstruction at international, national and regional meetings including the International Course on Perforator Flaps and the BC3 Breast Cancer Coordinated Care Conference. He has written multiple articles published in peer-reviewed journals including the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the Annals of Plastic Surgery, as well as textbook and atlas chapters. Techniques that he has pioneered include minimally-invasive approach to DIEP harvest, bipedicle DIEP flaps in the thin abdomen, volume augmentation of the deficient DIEP flap, volume correction after partial mastectomy (lumpectomy) using the DIEP flap,and a reliable repair of abdominal bulges related to TRAM flap breast reconstruction . He was a Principal Investigator in Mentor Corporation's national Adjunct Study that resulted in FDA approval in 2006 of the modern-day cohesive silicone gel-filled implants. Dr. Feingold is currently editing a new textbook in comprehensive breast reconstruction for publication in 2016 that incorporates the state of the art procedures performed in his practice as well as other thought leaders from around the world.

Dr. Feingold is the medical director of our AAAASF-certified state-of-the-art office surgical suite. He performs innovative cosmetic procedures including minimally invasive browlifts, SMAS facelifts, short-scar and mini-facelifts, transconjunctival blepharoplasty, Erbium laser eyelid and facial resurfacing, open rhinoplasty and septoplasty, otoplasty and VASER ultrasonic liposuction. He has extensive experience with silicone gel breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction and abdominoplasty. He performs body contouring procedures for patients who have undergone weight loss (bariatric) surgery including arm-lifts (brachioplasty), circumferential lower body lifts and thigh lifts. His patients have enjoyed success with fat grafting after Vaser liposuction, a process he calls "redistribution of your assets". This use of viable fat harvested from liposuction allows restoring facial proportion and lip volume, breast augmentation without implants, and high definition gluteal scultping/augmentation. Dr. Feingold also utilizes injectable therapies for nonsurgical rejuvenation including Botox Cosmetic for forehead wrinkles, frown lines and crow's feet, Restylane and Juvederm XC for nasolabial folds and lip lines, Juvederm Voluma XC and Radiesse for cheekbone enhancement, and Sculptra Aesthetic. He coordinates patient care in consultation with our Aesthetician to determine the best combination of treatment modalities to maximize results and minimize downtime. These include noninvasive CoolSculpting fat reduction, VASER Shape body contouring and Invasix radiofrequency skin tightening.
