My name is Derek Steinbacher. I’m a plastic surgeon and I focus on refinement, function, and aesthetics in the areas that I treat. I’m a double board-certified surgeon, certified both in plastic surgery and oral and maxillofacial surgery. I treat patients coming from all walks of life and from all over the world. We frequently see national and international patients that fly in for treatment. I focus a lot on regions of the face, so this includes rhinoplasty, corrective jaw surgery or orthognathic surgery, facelift, facial rejuvenation, eyelid surgery, and facial sculpting. I also do cosmetic surgery involving the breast and body, again, focusing on refinement, proportions, aesthetics, and restoration. I also work a lot with children who have facial differences, including cleft lip and palate, craniosynostosis or other skull deformities, jaw deformities, or other areas that they’re born with, affecting the face and head and neck region. Going through the entire process of the surgery and then seeing that result and seeing the satisfaction on their face, the smiles on their face when we’re getting to where we want to be, the happiness, the satisfaction, the improved sense of self-confidence and appearance that these patients and their families have is very gratifying.
