Professional Statement

Dr. Steinbrech, described by Forbes as the “Go-to surgeon for men,” is one of the nation’s most sought out experts for men’s surgery, leading the new wave of techniques in the accelerating field of men’s aesthetics. His techniques, attention to detail, and approach to cosmetic procedures have been customized to the male anatomy. Dr. Steinbrech has been recognized as being one of the top plastic surgeons for men in his field by multiple media sources such as The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, New York Times, NBC & ABC. In addition to his busy surgical practice, Dr. Steinbrech in often called upon to speak both nationally and internationally about his techniques and the unique differences he has implemented in his practice to accommodate the desires and body structures of men. Along with an internationally respected team of physicians, Dr. Steinbrech is currently editing the first textbook focused solely men entitled Anesthetic Plastic Surgery for Men. The textbook is expected to be in circulation by Spring, 2019. Dr. Steinbrech is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons and is very active on The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. His passion for male plastic surgery led him to establish The New York Institute of Male Plastic Surgery in early 2016, which provides an educational foundation for current and future physicians to learn about and help further this subspecialty.
