Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology would like to extend our sincerest welcome and thanks. Our loyal patients and site visitors continually remind us of the exceptional work that we do and the service that we pride ourselves on extending to all of our patients. Being one of the most successful cosmetic plastic surgery practices in New York, means that we have set high standards while maximizing our patient’s experience.
As we reflect on our past year, and the challenges that were faced around the world due to the pandemic, we consider how far our practice has come and how much further we wish to go.
Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology prides itself on being on the cutting edge of cosmetic surgery and aesthetic procedures. Our goal has always been to provide the very best in care to our patients, but also to help redefine and change attitudes about plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures.
Many people come to our practice to seek help, they want to improve their appearance or correct some issue that has been weighing on their mind. Society’s attitudes towards cosmetic surgery have always had a stigma surrounding them, but we’d like to think that we have helped reduce this stigma through patient education and the sharing of patient stories and testimonials. Patients report that their state-of-mind is greatly improved once they feel better about themselves. When you look good, you feel good!
Our patients come to our practice eager to change some feature about themselves that they feel has gotten in the way of their quality of life. After a consultation with Dr. Greenberg, who has several decades of experience in the field of cosmetic plastic surgery, they’re able to find the right procedure for them and walk away from the procedure with a renewed sense of self and reinvigorated passion for their life.
While Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology has had the privilege and good fortune of having some of the best surgeons on staff here with us, this post is dedicated to the man who has spent the better part of his life helping people and building up Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology to be what it is today.
So, who is Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg?
Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg
Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg, received his undergraduate education as well as his foundational medical education at George Washington University. He achieved the category of Highest Distinction in both his B.S. and his M.D..
After an internship at The New York Hospital-Cornell University Medical Center, he did his residency/fellowship at The Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania Philadelphia, P.A.; Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery—obtaining his license in 1993.
Dr. Greenberg received his first board certification with the American Board of Surgery in 1994, and in 1998 received another board certification with the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Dr. Greenberg’s education stems from the most prestigious educational and medical institutions which have provided a comprehensive foundation of vast medical knowledge. This knowledge forms the basis of his expertise in cosmetic and plastic surgery methods as well as provides the basis of his patient physician relationships, taking a whole-body approach for each patient.
Doctors treat ailments with a certain degree of standard medical protocol and specificity towards those ailments that are concurrent with the accepted body of medical literature and consensus. When it comes to cosmetic surgery, however, the case is not quite the same.
Yes, the bare medical foundational procedures to operate and ensure adequate healing and patient comfort are crucial to any cosmetic surgery practice. However, what separates Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology from other private practices is Dr. Greenberg’s novel approaches to traditional procedures that has given him credit as a skilled cosmetic surgeon capable of performing more advanced versions of standard procedures.
Throughout Dr. Greenberg’s career, he has successfully performed thousands of the most standard cosmetic surgery procedures such as rhinoplasty, facelift, breast augmentation, and liposuction. Procedures such as Smart Lipo, J-Plasma, Cellulaze, Coolsculpting, Emsculpt and Neograft show the practice’s dedication to taking traditional procedures, and offering enhanced versions as part of our ongoing commitment to offer the most advanced techniques combined with the most advanced technology. Many patients may find that standard procedures with competent hands behind it are acceptable, but there is an increasing number who prefer this additional level that Dr. Greenberg can offer.
There are perhaps no better examples than the 24-Hour Rapid Recovery Mini Incision Breast Augmentation, which is Dr. Greenberg’s contribution to the world of breast augmentation. Breast augmentation typically requires a great deal of downtime, but this 24-hour approach utilizes mini-incisions to speed up the process of recovery.
In his 20-plus years of experience in the realm of plastic and cosmetic surgery, Dr. Greenberg has accumulated experience from an array of different positions and memberships to professional societies such as the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, American Medical Association, American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association, and many more.
The expertise gained from this has not only allowed him to grow Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology to be what it is today, but also many main stream news organizations have sought his consult to bring awareness and knowledge of cosmetic surgery and its procedures to the general public.
Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery in the Media
Cosmetic surgery has gradually become destigmatized over the years. What was once a secretive approach to improving a person’s looks is now something openly discussed. There are many reasons for this, but an important facet of it is medical professionals such as Dr. Greenberg going on major television programs such as the CBS Evening News, Good Morning America or Good Day New York.
Dr. Greenberg’s appearance on Good Morning America is where he shared his passion for cosmetic surgery and expressed his roots in the idea that “it’s one of the unique fields that allows me to make a patient feel better about themselves and also look better at the same time”
This is not the first time Dr. Greenberg has mentioned his love for cosmetic surgery being patient focused. On the CBS Evening News segment with Dan Rather, they say that the times are changing, and some people and patients don’t care if anyone knows they’ve had work done—they’re proud to flaunt it and strut around with increased confidence.
The work, done by Dr. Greenberg himself, was contextualized by his comments while being interviewed at a cosmetic surgery show.
I think society has kind of changed over time and that I’ve adapted with it.Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg
This attitude reflects the greater trend in society that if people are self-conscious about something, it’s okay to change it and get it worked on. We have no issue with getting a professional to cut our hair in unnatural shapes or to use chemicals to alter the composition of our hair to make it curlier or straighter, or change the color. Celebrity cosmetic surgeons such as Dr. Greenberg contend that cosmetic surgery is no different, so long as the appropriate safety measures are in place for each specific procedure and that patients are spoken to transparently about what they can expect.
In the Press
News segments and interviews aren’t the only places that Dr. Greenberg and Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology make frequent appearances.
Several publications have always asked Dr. Greenberg—a renowned celebrity cosmetic plastic surgeon, for his opinion on new trends and potentially identifying what work a celebrity has had done. While the attitude towards cosmetic surgery has changed, that hasn’t stopped Hollywood from being a relatively secret place when it comes to getting work done.
The information is out there, but agents and publicists certainly do not go out of their way to state what those procedures might be. The fans are curious, however, and many highly successful magazines and publications such as…
- Cosmopolitan Magazine
- Health Magazine
- Harper’s Bazaar
- The New York Times
- The New York Post
…have featured Dr. Greenberg to gain his perspective on what procedures are hot and potentially who may have already gotten them.
Locations Throughout NY and Long Island, State of the Art Facilities
For Dr. Greenberg, the goal with Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology was not only to provide stellar services and treatments, but also to create a brand that was available to those looking for plastic or cosmetic surgery on Long Island, in NYC and the Greater New York area.
From our offices in Manhattan and Woodbury, to our luxurious Southampton office, Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology has been committed to providing a consistent brand experience that can be accessed conveniently for those living in the New York Metropolitan area. Don’t let that confuse you though, many people—including celebrities, opt to fly in to visit Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology every year. Some even prefer to use the practice’s fly-in/concierge service for the ultimate experience in results and comfort.
The realm of cosmetic surgery is not purely reliant on invasive cosmetic procedures. The times have changed! While procedures such as face lifts, tummy tucks, breast augmentations, etc, continue to remain popular, it is the casual injection of dermal fillers and injectables such as Botox that have truly opened up the world of cosmetic enhancement to the everyday person.
While it may seem like a serious matter to consider a liposuction, just about everyone has seen a wrinkle or two and lamented their uncontrollable descent into an elderly aesthetic. What if we could change that elderly aesthetic to one that was a bit smoother, natural, yet better off? Dr. Greenberg seems to think so.
In his popular book A Little Nip, a Little Tuck: An Insider’s Guide to Cosmetic Enhancement, Dr. G tackles the topic of cosmetic enhancement with savvy, compassion, and most of all transparency. People want to look better and feel better, where’s the harm in that? Medical expertise is meant to be restorative, rejuvenating. Keep a look out for his next book, due out this year!
These rejuvenating medspa procedures are a big hit everywhere, including our spectacular Southampton location, where locally it has long since been en vogue to get an array of anti-aging procedures done.
According to Dr. Greenberg, these procedures are no longer the domain of well-to-do socialites but also equally available to the average person. Whether they want injectables in Woodbury or injectables in Manhattan, Dr. Greenberg has an office nearby where people can visit and receive quality care and safe administration of these effective anti-aging solutions.
Best of all, those undergoing surgery will be receiving it in our private state-of-the-art accredited ambulatory centers that allow us to do virtually any procedure with the highest medical protocols for safety, hygiene, and comfort.
