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...

5 out of 5 stars Volbella

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...

After consulting with Dr. Steinbrech and hearing more about his...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Implant Removal

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!

Calf Liposculpture

This was my first ever liposuction procedure and I know I made the right choice with Dr Steinbrech.

44 Yo Wanting to Look Refreshed -New York City

I went to Dr Steinbrech's office for a consultation seeking to correct the effects time has on everyone's face. Although I feel great, I noticed that I always looked tired. Winkles, sagging skin, loss of volume and tone, all of them causing a mismatch between the man I felt like and the man people were seeing. Though a detailed consultation and actual dialog, we developed an a mazing...
