The Award Winning Celebrity Plastic Surgeon Stephen T. Greenberg, M.D., F.A.C.S., has over 30 years of expertise and has performed thousands of surgical procedures. As a 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 from Manhattan to The Hamptons and beyond.

When asked about his philosophy on plastic surgery and beauty, he states, “I want my patients to feel good about themselves. I always strive to provide the most natural-looking results coupled with minimal recovery time. Many of my patients tell me after their procedure that they have newly found confidence, which has prompted them to go for that new job or promotion, get back into the dating scene, and start wearing the clothing they always dreamed of. Often, they tell me that no one can pinpoint that they have had a procedure. They only notice how refreshed, youthful, and vibrant they look.”

Dr. Greenberg is passionate about helping his patients’ outer appearance to reflect their inner beauty. Seeing the uptick of people seeking cosmetic procedures, Dr. Greenberg believes that self-esteem has been the driving force for his patients. “It always amazes me to see the difference in how patients see 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 facelift procedures for both men and women are seeing an uptick, states Dr. Greenberg; “People want to look as young as they feel and are now taking steps towards meeting that goal.” Dr. Greenberg’s offices offer everything from injectables and fillers to laser treatments, breast augmentation, liposuction, facelifts, and nose jobs. These offices are perfect for a lunchtime mini lift or a more extensive, life-altering facial or body transformation.

The doctor pioneered his Micro-Mini Lift performed under local anesthesia. He states that he has his micro-mini and many mini-face lift patients’ restaurant ready in a matter of days. Incorporating a facial fat transfer has resulted in a more dramatic outcome with a youthful glow. “Over the years, I have enjoyed treating thousands of women and men with a personal and individualized approach. I am part surgeon and part artist, and I appreciate the opportunity to play an important role in the lives of my patients.” 

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 worldwide to his practice. His newest outpost in Dubai is where he rejuvenates the UAE elite who have sought him specifically for his contemporary methods. Dr. Greenberg is proud to provide his ultra-modern approach at his state-of-the-art surgical centers, which have met the stringent criteria for AAAASF accreditation.

Dr. Greenberg created his celeb-endorsed environments to maximize comfort and give each patient an exceptional luxury experience. “I want patients to be as comfortable and relaxed as possible. From our first meeting to the weeks following surgery, I want each patient to be happy with their full experience,” states Dr. Greenberg.

He is frequently called upon by various media outlets for his plastic surgery expertise. His roster includes Good Day New York, WABC, CBS, Fox News, NBC, and News12 Long Island. He has also appeared in publications such as Harper’s Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, More, and Elle, as well as in The New York Times, New York Post’s Page Six, and Newsday.

How did you get your start in real estate?
My family owned department stores—and the associated real estate—in Venezuela after they relocated from Italy. I had early exposure to the value of owning an asset, gaining equity, and running a successful business.

After spending my post-college years in New York, I set my sights on Miami. I was lucky to entrench myself in the Magic City before it became a dynamic luxury market. Real estate is a timing business, and that early start has shaped my market knowledge.

Additionally, he is honored to be named Best Cosmetic Surgeon, 10 Best Plastic Surgeons in America, Top Doctor and Expert Injector, and awarded the Patients’ Choice Award, Compassionate Care Award, and Best of the Best. Dr. Greenberg takes great pride in his doctor-patient relationships and sees this connection as key to providing the best patient experience. “After 30 years in practice, I still receive great satisfaction from helping my patients reach their aesthetic goals. Once they are happy with how they look, their entire demeanor changes. It is amazing how important these improvements can be to a patient’s state of mind.

Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg takes great pride in restoring patient confidence by working with each patient to set realistic expectations and create a custom surgical package to provide the most natural outcomes possible. “As a cosmetic plastic surgeon, I work both on the inside and the outside of a patient’s skin every day. I understand their needs and the best method for achieving superior results.”

Today’s patients are younger than ever before. People are living longer and want to look as good as they feel. Men seeking plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures have dramatically increased over the past several years. Patients request various surgical and non-surgical options to improve their appearance and modify areas that affect their self-confidence.

“Many times, it is the combination of surgical and non-surgical treatments that produce the most natural and best results,” states Dr. Greenberg. “It is of the highest importance to me that each patient gets the best results suited to their unique features. I use cutting-edge imaging to help patients visualize their surgical results and mentor them on how a natural-looking and effective outcome will have a significant impact on reaching their goals.”

Dr. Greenberg is a legend to the rich and famous across the globe, as well as his friends and neighbors in Manhattan and on the East End. His achievements garner continual awards for his revolutionary work, where experience makes the difference.
