Dr. Scott Reis is a native of Texas. He was born in Houston and grew up in Waco. He received an academic scholarship to Rice University where he graduated Cum Laude with dual degrees, a B.S in Biochemistry & Cellular Biology and a B.A in Economics. It was during this time, while collaborating with bioengineers at Rice and plastic surgeons in the Texas Medical Center on novel reconstructive techniques for children with congenital ear deformities, that Dr. Reis fell in love with the creativity of plastic surgery and truly found his life’s calling.

He went on to study medicine at the University of Texas in the Texas Medical Center, where he was elected to the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society for the nation’s top medical graduates. He completed his six-year integrated plastic surgery residency training at the world-renowned Institute for Reconstructive Plastic Surgery at New York University, one of the nation’s oldest, most competitive, and challenging training programs. At NYU, he had the invaluable opportunity of training under many true international leaders in Cosmetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery.

Using advanced and innovative techniques, Dr. Scott Reis strives every day to provide his patients with compassionate and comprehensive care. He specializes in all aspects of plastic and reconstructive surgery, with a special interest in facial, breast and body aesthetics as well as microsurgical reconstruction after cancer or trauma.

While at home, Dr. Reis enjoys spending his time grilling out, reading, and spending time with family and friends, especially his baby daughter Brooklyn, wife Alicia, and their Yorkie Bella.

“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.”
