About Dr. Scott Reis

Scott M Reis

Dr. Scott Reis is a cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon who’s experienced in all aspects of plastic and reconstructive surgery. However, one of the things he’s known throughout the Houston area for is his innovative hair restoration process, which gives patients a completely natural look without any scarring, no pain, and minimal downtime.

He believes in improving appearance by enhancing his patients’ natural and individual characteristics in a way that restores the confidence they lacked pre-surgery. Dr. Reis has a special interest in working with patients who are in need of microsurgical reconstruction after trauma or undergoing cancer treatment, as well as patients who want to improve their facial, breast, and body aesthetics in a way that looks natural.

His overall goal is to ensure his patients have an amazing overall experience and get the results they want in the safest and most reliable manner possible. To accomplish this, he uses the most advanced and innovative techniques available to ensure his patients receive the comprehensive care needed throughout their surgery and recovery.

Dr. Reis is a Texas native who found his calling while working on a collaboration between bioengineers from Rice University and plastic surgeons in the Texas Medical Center to improve reconstructive techniques used to help children with congenital ear deformities. Oddly enough, Dr. Reis was actually one of the bioengineer participants — he studied at Rice University after receiving a scholarship, eventually graduating Cum Laude with dual degrees, a B.A. in Finance & Economics and a B.S. in Biochemistry & Cellular Biology.

While collaborating with plastic surgeons to improve the ear reconstruction process for children, he fell in love with the creative and restorative aspects of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Experiencing the artistry and creativity involved in the cosmetic surgery process as well as the life-changing effect of reconstructive surgery changed his life completely.

He went on to graduate from medical school at the University of Texas in the Texas Medical Center. During this time he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society — a prestigious accomplishment only awarded to the nation’s top medical graduates. Then, he completed a six-year plastic surgery residency at the NYU Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgeryin New York City, which is world-renowned and currently ranked as the top plastic surgery training program in the US. Here, he was able to train under true international leaders in the cosmetic and reconstructive surgery field.

When you work with Dr. Reis, you’re working with an elite surgeon in the plastic and reconstructive surgery field. Not only does he use the most up-to-date techniques and procedures in a way that only a true artist could, but he’s also a compassionate person who truly cares about each and every one of his patients — and that’s what really matters.

“Improving appearance by enhancing one’s natural and individual characteristics”

is Dr. Scott Reis’s foremost philosophy as a plastic surgeon. The challenge of optimizing each patient’s unique outcome, while considering both form and function, is what makes plastic surgery such a fascinating and rewarding specialty for Dr. Scott Reis.
