About Our Practice


At the Ridgewood Plastic Surgery Center, we have the following priorities: safety, achieving a natural, unoperated look, and attaining the most improvement possible with the least surgery. Dr. Sternschein performs surgery exclusively at fully accredited facilities, using only board certified doctor anesthesiologists. He will assess your medical condition and recommend cosmetic surgical procedures that are safe for you. He uses techniques that have a significant "track record" of safety and effectiveness.

Dr. Sternschein feels that achieving a natural, unoperated look is essential. Because he believes a natural result is so important you will see this goal noted many times when you explore this web site. During your consultation Dr. Sternschein will assess your condition and listen to your cosmetic concerns. He will suggest procedures or treatments that will give you the best results with the least surgical intervention. For many patients non-surgical options are best. For others surgical procedures will be the only way to achieve their goals.

To ensure safety and the best result, you need to be certain you are choosing a genuine specialist in cosmetic surgery: a board certified Plastic Surgeon with the highest quality training, superior skill, and extensive experience. Dr. Michael Sternschein is a Columbia University trained, board certified Plastic Surgeon with over 30 years of experience. Dr Sternschein's extraordinary reputation in the community and with his colleagues is demonstrated by the fact that he was Director of the Department of Plastic Surgery at The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, New Jersey for a maximum allowed term of eight years. He was also the Director of the Department of Plastic Surgery at Pascack Valley Hospital from 1998 until 2007. He is the founder and director of The Ridgewood Plastic Surgery Center.

In addition, Dr. Sternschein is known for his friendly and relaxed manner with patients. He will take the time to discuss all of your questions and concerns during your consultation. You will experience this same caring, attention, and availability after your treatment or surgery. When you visit our office you will never feel rushed or pressured. Every member of our medical and support team wants to help you gather the information you need to make the best possible decision regarding plastic surgery. We take great pride in our tradition of providing safe, honest, ethical, and compassionate care.

At The Ridgewood Plastic Surgery Center, we offer a full range of cosmetic services from the most advanced, state of the art surgical procedures to simple but effective non-surgical office treatments.
