There for You

Dr. Steinwald truly believes in treating every patient like a friend or family member, and making sure they feel safe, comfortable and heard during every phase of their surgical journey. "My approach is to listen to what prospective patients would like, determine their candidacy through careful assessment, and ultimately partner with my patients to educate and empower them regarding their best options. I then strive to apply the safest, most effective techniques available in a very focused, result-driven fashion, and see my patients through a successful recovery, so that they may enjoy a more confident and fulfilling life moving forward. It is a distinct honor and privilege to be central to this process."

Plastic Surgery Is "In His Blood"

Dr. Steinwald is actually a second-generation plastic surgeon, but was drawn to plastic surgery later in his medical education, through his own discovery of the field's challenging variety and reward for attention to detail. "I recognized early on that very few fields in medicine would allow me to use my head, heart and hands in such equal measure, as well as allow me to pursue optimal, appreciable results." Dr. Steinwald finds it very fulfilling to see the results of the many thoughtful decisions and executions that go into each and every case he performs.

Traditionally Innovative

Dr. Steinwald trained at the renowned UCSF program in San Francisco, CA, and believes in utilizing predictable, proven plastic surgery techniques that reliably deliver soft, natural results. He remains circumspect about the "latest and greatest," most marketable modalities, often promoted by companies rather than surgeons. That said, he has innovated several newer techniques (especially with respect to chest masculinization procedures) based on sound plastic surgery principles, which have proven very safe and effective over many years, and for which patients visit Dr. Steinwald from all over the U.S. (and even abroad).

Bringing It All to Denver

Dr. Steinwald was recruited to join The Center for Cosmetic Surgery in 2014, in recognition of his numerous achievements, as well as his compatible surgical style and personality. Previously, he ran a highly successful solo plastic surgery practice on Chicago's North Shore in Lake Forest, IL, starting in 2000, and served as Vice-Chair of the Department of Surgery at Northwestern Lake Forest Hospital from 2007-2014. He and his wife Laura (and new daughter Audrey) decided to make the move to Denver when it became apparent that he would be able to deliver plastic surgery excellence to his patients even more effectively, in a beautiful, accredited facility with its dedicated and supportive staff and two of Denver, Colorado's finest plastic surgeons. The Steinwalds also were drawn to the healthy environment and inspiration of the nearby mountains, and therefore were quite excited to have been invited to join The Center for Cosmetic Surgery family.

Dr. Steinwald is a man of many outside interests and hobbies, including music, golf, travel, skiing, tropical fishkeeping and the occasional marathon. He is double-board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and the American Board of Surgery (ABS), and is a member of both the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).
