Dr-Douglas-SteinbrechDr. Douglas Steinbrech is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon under the American Board of Plastic Surgeons. Dr. Steinbrech’s NYC practice specializes in cosmetic procedures customized for men, including both surgical and non-surgical options. His passion for male plastic surgery led him to establish The Institute of Male Plastic Surgery in early 2016, which will provide an educational foundation for current and future physicians to learn about and help further this subspecialty.

Dr. Steinbrech is one of a very few surgeon’s in the United States that has a practice that focuses on procedures that are most important to men. His techniques, attention to detail, and approach to cosmetic procedures are customized to the male anatomy. Dr. Steinbrech has been recognized as being one of the top plastic surgeons for men in the New York City area in his field by multiple media sources.

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 a highly skilled team of physicians, Dr. Steinbrech is currently editing the first textbook focused solely on the unique techniques used in cosmetic procedures designed just for men entitled Anesthetic Plastic Surgery for Men. The textbook is expected to be in circulation by Spring, 2017.

Surgical Training:

Dr. Steinbrech underwent eight years of surgical training at New York University in General Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive surgery and was trained at the prestigious NYU Institute of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. This included training at Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital by the icons of the 20th and 21st centuries including mentors McCarthy, Aston, Baker, Tabbal and Pittman.
