5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

I HEART Dr. Steinbrech and His Team - New York, NY

Before coming across Dr. Steinbrech via this site, I was considering going to Costa Rica for my abdominoplasty. All doctors that I contacted said that they weren't willing to do the surgery because of how invasive the procedure is. Thank goodness for this because I would never have met Dr. Steinbrech and his wonderful team of professionals. My consultation lasted about 2 hours and was informative from the moment I sat down. All involved were genuine and this left such an impression on me such that I when I left, I knew that I wanted to move forward with Dr. Steinbrech.He took the time to explain that, in my specific situation, I would need to continue to eat right and exercise and that we would do this as a team (he will hold me accountable). Following my surgery, the nurses, patient advisor, practice manager were supportive, responsive, and positive. They, including Dr. Steinbrech, responded to my concerns as soon as possible. I'm 7 weeks post op and can confidently say that Dr. Steinbrech is truly skilled. Although I'm still swollen, my incision looks fantastic and my belly button is uber-cute! I haven't had any noteworthy complications thus far and I'm full steam ahead to continued recovery and additional weight loss.

I had a great experience and learn about different procedures every time we speak.

Arriving to his office it's always good to see Dr Steinbrech because he is very interested in my questions and concerns and always comes off with a great vision of the final result. Also, offering other skills and procedures I would not have even considered, but with his presentation I am sold. Using the images is very helpful to determine the look that we are going for. Can't wait to work my...

Superb Second Time

After an issue with my original saline implants (from another Dr) I was nervous & upset about going through the procedure for a second time. I was very self conscious about how unevenand obvious the defect became. The recovery time was so much easier (the first time I dealt with all the stretching) it did not compare to my first time around. I remember not being able to open a water...

An artist!

Excellent. Dr Steinbrech is very thorough with his work. He tells you what to expect during and post-surgery. He takes a lot of pride on his work, and is a bit of an "artist" when it comes to working to get the best results possible given any limitations. I had a tummy tuck, lipo, ab etching, and chest implants in two separate procedures. He was very good about making sure I understood the...

Amazing Lips

Today I received filler in my lip from Dr. Steinbrech. His knowledge, bed side manner, and kindness far exceeded my expectations. He recommended where the filler should go, I trusted him, and bam! gorgeous lips. Between the professionalism and the perfect new lips I am so grateful. Thank you for making me feel so comfortable, can't wait to go back!

37 Yo Daddy Make over ,hi Def Lipo with Fat Transfer. - Los Angeles, CA

Hands of gold!! about sums it up to how talented and amazing this doctors skills are in sculpting your body , the passion and level of professionalism that this doctor has is out of this world . The staff has been amazing and accommodating answering questions and replying promptly even on weekends . The initial consultation was over Skype with Joseph from the New York office , he answered every question I had and going over every little detail about the procedures I was inquiring about and explaining me what the process entails. The procedure was done in LA as it's where I reside and Dr Steinbrech has a clinic here which was great ! I only got to personally meet the Dr in person the day of surgery although I saw him on Skype and we spoke over the phone prior to surgery , Dani from the New York office has been amazing coordinating all the follow ups and pre and post surgery details . Dr Steinbrech has changed my life , for the first time I feel great about the way I look, this has been a very painful journey for me as I always struggled with the way my body looked no matter how much I worked out and ate right , Dr Steinbrech and his team gave me a new body that I absolutely love! I can't and I won't stop raving on how amazing this doctor has been with following up and calling to check on me even late at night ( EST vs PST time zones) to make sure I'm ok . Please check my profile for many before and after pics that I will keep updating as proof of how amazing my transformation has been . I'm truly lucky and grateful to have been under Dr Steibrech care. All the best Dave
