Dr. Schneider’s experience has focused on complex reconstructive and aesthetic procedures, including breast and lymphedema surgery. She is a passionate physician and caring mother who tailors her care to each individual patient.
Dr. Schneider graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Summa Cum Laude from Yale University, where she won the prestigious Nicholas Poulin Cup, given to the woman with the highest GPA in her college. She is a strong supporter of women’s rights and ran an organization at Yale called Consent, which helped those with questions or concerns about sexual harassment or assault.
Dr. Schneider graduated in the top of her class from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, earning a coveted spot in the Alpha Omega Honor Society as well as the Gold Humanism Honor Society. While at Columbia, she founded a Women’s Health Interest Group and was the leader of the school’s chapter of the American Medical Women’s Association. Dr. Schneider was one of only two students selected nationwide for training at the world-renowned Institute for Reconstructive Plastic Surgery at New York University Langone Medical Center-Bellevue Hospital. She trained for six years with leaders and pioneers in all fields of plastic and reconstructive surgery, including Dr. Bob Allen, the originator of the DIEP flap. She spent an additional year of training in microsurgical reconstruction at NYU/Bellevue, honing her skills at complex procedures such as finger re-attachments and free tissue transfer. Dr. Schneider’s goal is to provide her patients with the highest level of expertise, so that their decisions – and not their surgeon’s limitations – would drive their care.
Dr. Schneider has been in private practice for seven years, expanding free-flap programs into multiple new hospitals and pioneering the development of a center of lymphedema surgical care. She is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery and the American Society of Reconstructive Microsurgery.

“I have been on this journey of a breast reduction for the last 10 years and have tried everything but with only temporary relief. Dr. Schneider is my surgeon and she put me at ease from the first consult. She answered any questions but is thorough in providing you with information. I’m am 3 days post op and they look great already. I fully recommend the team. They are with you the entire process. I want to give kudos to Yesenia, Kelly, Nicole, Simone, Gabrielle,. Thank you Gabrielle for responding to me on New Years Eve. I really wish I had found this practice years ago. Do yourself a favor if you are contemplating a procedure and just go for a consult. It will change your life.”
“I have always wanted a breast reduction and have had multiple consultations and never felt comfortable until I met Dr. Schneider on my virtual consult. She instantly made me feel at ease, she explained the procedure and answered all my questions. She took the time to get to know me and the why behind wanting the surgery, she wanted to know what I looked forward to the most after surgery and she truly cares. I decided to book the surgery, from there my experience only got better, Simone is the most amazing person ever, all the PA’s Mallory, Liz, they were there every single step of the way, in person, over the phone or answering my text messages post op. I am just over 3 months post op, and am thrilled with the results!! For the first time in my life I was able to wear a strapless dress and not be totally uncomfortable!! Thank you for giving me my self confidence!”
“I’m almost 4 months post op on a breast reduction and couldn’t be happier with the results!! Decided to finally take the plunge after waiting for years and the team at Rowe was so assuring and helpful. Dr. Schneider performed my surgery and made me feel calm and relaxed. Would recommend if you are looking to get a breast reduction. Simone and Lisa are also so amazing!!!”
“I am so, so grateful for everyone at this office! I have had the most incredible experience with my breast reduction thanks to Dr. Schneider, Lisa, Michele and the rest of this staff. I had trouble getting my surgery covered by other offices and I ended up getting it covered through this office. I felt very comfortable and confident in Dr. Schneider after having my consultation with her and am so beyond happy with the results of my surgery! I got my surgery a month ago and Lisa and the rest of the staff have been extremely available at all times for any questions or concerns I was having afterwards. I have recommended this office to many people. They are so amazing!”
“I had an amazing experience at Rowe plastic surgery, from first walking in and dealing with the amazing office manage Simone Web and the countless phone/video calls before and after with physical assistants Elizabeth Janson and Mallory Oxford I have never felt more comfort when getting a surgery. The best part of it all was my experience with Dr. Lisa Schneider who was able to give me exactly what I was looking for. She made me feel comfortable and secure before and after my surgery, she was amazing and I am 100% happy with my results.”
