DR . STEPHEN T. GREENBERG AS CLOSE TO PERFECTION AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE By Blaire Bass

S

tephen T. Greenberg, M.D., F.A.C.S., the famed celebrity cosmetic surgeon, is something of a legend: In addition to being an author, radio personality, and formulator of his own skincare line, including his newest Plastic Surgeon’s Ultimate Scar Gel, he has performed thousands of procedures. His experience has led him to evolve and advance techniques to achieve specialized results with virtually zero downtime. It is no surprise that he is often called upon as the expert on all things beauty. Social Life Magazine wanted to know what makes Dr. Greenberg tick. You are renowned in your discipline. What sets you apart from others? One of the most important aspects of my practice is my focus on patient experience. I was recently named one of 10 Best Plastic Surgeons for Patient Satisfaction by the American Institute of Plastic Surgeons. That’s a very high standard to achieve. A lot of expectation management must go into that. I am very candid and upfront with my patients and am very specific when I present a patient with their personal and customized plan. It is important for my patients to have as much information as possible, and to have the opportunity to ask questions and discuss their goals prior to surgery. What are the hottest trends in cosmetic surgery right now? The most common request I receive is for breast procedures, specifically my Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation. There are many SocialLifeMagazine.com

new implant options that allow me to provide customizable augmentations to match a patient’s anatomy. I carefully select the materials that I use and am proud to report that textured implants are not on my list. Is liposuction still popular? Liposuction procedures are a close second to breast procedures. I combine lipo with other surgical procedures. With my Plasma Lipo technique, I achieve greater fat removal and better skin retraction. I combine Cellulaze with thigh lipo, to reduce the dimpling effect of cellulite. One of the hottest trends where I yield the most amazing results is by combining lipo with a tummy tuck and fat transfer to the buttocks, lips, face, and even hands. Has the age range of your patients changed at all? Dramatically. Patients seeking facelifts and eyelid lifts are younger than ever before. Due to the demanding schedules of today’s lifestyle, my Mini-Lift has become a favorite of women and men in their 40s and 50s. I am also seeing younger men and women for injectables and fillers in their 30s to delay the signs of aging later on.
