The award-winning, celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg has more than 30 years of expertise and has performed thousands of surgical procedures. He is the founder of Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology and is a respected leader in cosmetic plastic surgery. Dr. Greenberg prides himself on combining his advanced surgical techniques with cutting-edge technologies at his state-of-the-art facilities in Manhattan, Southampton, Woodbury, Smithtown, Scarsdale, Boca Raton, and Dubai. When asked about his philosophy on plastic surgery and beauty, he says, “I want my patients to feel good about themselves, and I always strive to provide the most natural-looking results coupled with minimal recovery time. Many of my patients tell me that after their procedure they have a newly found confidence which has prompted them to go for that new job or promotion, get back into the dating scene, and start to wear the clothing they always dreamed of. Oftentimes, they tell me that no one can pinpoint that they have had a procedure, only that everyone notices how refreshed, youthful, and vibrant they look.” 

Dr. Greenberg is passionate about helping his patients’ outer appearance reflect their inner beauty. Seeing the uptick of people seeking cosmetic procedures, Dr. Greenberg believes that self-esteem has been the driving force for many patients. “It always amazes me to see the difference in how a patient sees themselves from their initial consultation to their post-operative check-up. They walk taller, smile brighter, and I see a sparkle that wasn’t there before.”

Dr. Greenberg is seeing a spike in requests for his ultra-modern Rapid Recovery techniques to reduce downtime for face, breast, and body procedures. Eyelid and face lift procedures for both men and women are especially popular, says Dr. Greenberg: “People want to look as young as they feel and are now taking steps to meet that goal.” Dr. Greenberg pioneered the micro-mini face lift for his younger patients and is performed under local anesthesia. Face lifts many times include a facial fat transfer, allowing Dr. Greenberg’s artistry to result in a more dramatic outcome — restoring youthful fullness and providing a refreshed glow.

Dr. Greenberg’s patients who receive his micro-mini or mini face lift are often restaurant-ready in a matter of days! Utilizing an individualized approach, Dr. Greenberg has expanded the aesthetic arena by delivering exceptional patient care coupled with amazingly natural outcomes. His reputation for employing the most sophisticated medical devices with his deft skills drives people from all over the world to his practice. His newest outpost in Dubai is where he rejuvenates the UAE elite who have sought him specifically for his contemporary approach.
