Doctor Steinbrech, Kelly and the rest of the staff are amazing! Have the best experience every step of the way... From the consultation to the surgery to the follow up appointments. They spend a lot of time during consultation to ensure they understand what you want, but most importantly what is best for you. I am 43 male, 5'10, 165 work out regularly and have a personal trainer, I just couldn't achieve the "bubble butt" results through exercise as it is heavily depends on genetics. I did my research, read through many reviews and narrowed down to 3 surgeons in NY and finally decide to go to Dr Steinbrech. So glad I chose him. He is an amazing surgeon, knowledgeable, experienced, caring, funny and an artist. He made me very comfortable and confident through out the process. The pain after the surgery from a 1 - 10 scale will be 5. It just feels like a really hard workout and your butt is sore. The most annoying thing is that you can't sit, sleep on your back, bend and the drains. The drains are very uncomfortable as they are stitched onto you so every time you move, you feel the pull. To help picking things up or assist on putting on pants, I recommend using a pair of tongs. After the surgery, one has to take care of the incision and make sure it is clean and dry. After shower, I recommend instead of using towel to dry your butt, use a blow dryer. I highly recommend Dr Steinbrech and his team for any work one might want to get done.
