With the latest aesthetic advancements in his arsenal, celebrity plastic surgeon Stephen T. Greenberg, MD, FACS, is here to give us all the life we need now.
While dimples on babies are darling, those on our derriere we often find less so. Enter QWO, the latest game changer to shift the cellulite conversation. “Cellulite affects 80% to 90% of women and many times cannot be eliminated without a cosmetic procedure,” shares celebrity plastic surgeon Stephen T. Greenberg. QWO offers the first and only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment for cellulite—but Greenberg deploys the innovative product in a multilayered technique that utilizes all the latest technology to remedy any problem areas. “My breakthrough treatments include QWO, the first and only injectable that breaks down the bands that cause cellulite and stimulates collagen synthesis to improve tone and texture,” he says. “The treatment is quick and painless, and my patients are seeing exceptional results.”
Greenberg also recommends Morpheus8 technology for patients to remodel their tissue and collagen deeper in the dermis. “Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency with microneedling to restructure and retexture thighs and buttocks. Many times I combine liposuction with Cellulaze, which is a laser that releases the fibrous bands that cause cellulite and provides a smoother contour,” he shares. “I enhance hips and shape using Sculptra, an injectable that stimulates collagen, as well as a fat transfer—and sometimes a combination of the two.”
Greenberg uses Morpheus8 technology for other challenging areas as well, like the knees. “The skin above the knees is difficult to tone up, no matter the extent of exercise or number of lunges done,” he says. “I was motivated to create ‘The Greenberg Knee Rejuvenation System’ to revive this challenging area. The system starts with the Morpheus8 microneedling and radiofrequency treatment to improve skin tone and texture and tighten the skin above the knees. I then incorporate PDO threads, which act as a scaffold to the weak tissue above the knees in order to provide a lift. I complete the system with Sculptra injections to contour the knee and further increase collagen production for a firmer, more contoured knee.”
Need a refresh that will give you a lift on Zoom and IRL? “My triple-threat system incorporates the Morpheus8 to improve skin quality, texture and laxity,” Greenberg says. “Ultherapy to lift the jowls, brows, neck and decolletage, and IPL photorejuvenation to remove brown spots and unsightly veins.” Greenberg also offers more invasive surgeries with maximum impact and minimal downtime. “Surgical and nonsurgical facial options that include face-lifts, mini face-lifts, eyelid lifts, neck lifts, plasma lifts and my micro mini face-lift result in a refreshed and more youthful appearance quicker than ever before. Liquid face-lifts include a restore to contour the cheeks, jowls, lower face, lips and eyes—many times with immediate results.”
