About David P. Rapaport, MD, FACS

My own philosophy is simple. I believe in educating my patients as to their best treatment options, and to individualize my recommendations so that they best address the individual patient's concerns and sensitivities. A natural appearing result is emphasized, and it is always sought with patient safety as my highest priority. No effort or expense will be spared at achieving these goals. In all aspects of his work, Dr. Rapaport emphasizes a sensitivity to each patient's individual concerns, and makes every effort to communicate with and treat every patient with the greatest attention to detail and meticulous care.

Professional Background

Board Certified New York Plastic Surgeon, David. P. Rapaport, son of holocaust survivors, began the study of medicine at Boston University six-year medical program at age 16 before transferring to Israel’s Tel Aviv University, where he earned his medical degree. He trained in general surgery at Boston’s Beth Israel Hospital, a major teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, where he served as Chief Resident. He then did his plastic surgery training at the New York University’s Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery, which is widely regarded as the nation’s top plastic and cosmetic surgery residency program. There too, he was appointed Executive Chief Resident. After a one-year microsurgery fellowship, Dr. Rapaport moved to Florida, where from 1993 to 1997, he was a key faculty member at the University of South Florida. There, he developed a successful and respected practice as a cosmetic plastic surgeon. During his four years in Florida, he also helped craft legislation requiring broader insurance coverage for reconstructive breast surgery, directed the cosmetic surgery education of residents, and did pioneering work in endoscopic and minimal incision breast and oncologic (melanoma) surgery. In 1997, he returned to New York City and opened his private cosmetic surgery practice in Manhattan, New York.

Dr. Rapaport specializes in New York Breast Augmentation, Liposuction, and Coolsculpting. All of Dr. Rapaport’s procedures are performed on-site in his fully accredited office surgical suite on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, New York. Dr. Rapaport also offers cosmetic and non-surgical procedures such as injectable fillers, Botox, earlobe repair, mole removal, and more. Many of these procedures require no down-time.
