    NEW YORK, NY, January 30, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Darrick E. Antell, MD, has been recognized as a 2024 Castle Connolly Top Doctor — the 24th year he has received the prestigious Top Doctor honor! Only about 7 percent of the nation's licensed physicians are selected annually as Castle Connolly Top Doctors in their regions for their specialties.

Dr. Antell is a highly regarded plastic surgeon in private practice on New York City's Park Avenue. Known for his nuanced "whisper, not scream" approach to plastic surgery, he has unique expertise and anatomical insight because he was trained as both a plastic surgeon and a dentist.

Dr. Antell performs a broad spectrum of sophisticated procedures for the face, breast, and body — many minimally invasive. These range from face and neck lifts, rhinoplasty ("nose job"), and breast reshaping and reconstruction to liposuction, abdominoplasty ("tummy tuck"), and post-cancer scar revision.

He also performs a number of non-surgical cosmetic procedures, including laser resurfacing, dermal fillers, BOTOX® injections, chemical peels, dermabrasion, and microneedling.

He believes that taking an individualized approach to every person and procedure is the key to achieving the most successful, natural-looking outcomes.

"Because everyone has their own unique issues they want to improve, concerns, and constraints, we'd never want to take a cookie-cutter approach to patient care," says Dr. Antell. "I listen to, evaluate, and work with every patient to select the safest, least-invasive surgical option that will do what they want to do, with the fewest risks."

Dr. Antell is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

In addition to his clinical responsibilities, Dr. Antell has served since 2014 as an assistant clinical professor of plastic surgery at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

He is the only plastic surgeon honored in the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, where his research on aging identical twins was featured in the Human Genome exhibit.
Dr. Antell earned his medical degree at the Medical College of Ohio after earning a DMD degree at Case Western Reserve University Dental School.

He completed a three-year surgery residency at Stanford Medical Center and a three-year plastic surgery residency at New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York, where he served as Chief Resident of Plastic Surgery in his third year.

Top Doctors are nominated by peer physicians and selected by the physician-led Castle Connolly research team.

"I am committed to continuous research, keeping myself at the forefront of the latest advancements in medical knowledge to ensure the highest possible outcomes for my patients," Dr. Antell says. "Additionally, I prioritize the importance of actively listening to patients' concerns and wishes, collaborating with them to achieve their desired results."

"By combining empathy with cutting-edge medical practices, I ensure our patients feel cared for and supported through every step of their treatment and recovery."
