Derek Steinbacher (FACS, FRCS (Ed), DMD, MD) is cosmetic plastic, rhinoplasty, and maxillofacial surgeon and Professor of Plastic Surgery at Yale New Haven Health in Connecticut.[1] He is also the chief of the Dental Department and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Yale New Haven Health.[2][3] He is known for his clinical work, research and incorporation of 3D analysis and printing into jaw surgery, craniofacial surgery and rhinoplasty.[4]


Steinbacher obtained Masters in Physical Anthropology and the Dental Medicine Doctorate from University of Pennsylvania. Later, he went to Harvard Medical School, where he graduated with honors, and completed Surgical and Oral/Maxillofacial residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital. He completed his Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery training at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, and the Craniofacial Fellowship was completed at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.[5]


Steinbacher's field of work and research interests includes tissue engineering and regeneration, fat grafting, distraction osteogenesis, stress shielding, and 3-dimensional analysis and planning.[6][7] He uses a 'surgery-first' approach in his orthognathic surgeries where he does the jaw surgery before much orthodontia to achieve a good outcome for his patients in aesthetic and functionality.[8]

He also holds a CAQ in pediatric craniomaxillofacial surgery. He treats children with facial differences like cleft lip and palate, skull abnormalities (craniosynostosis), small or disproportioned jaws, and TMJ ankyloses (fusions).[9][10]

Steinbacher is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and the Academy of Facial Plastic Surgeons. He is actively involved in national and international organizations including the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Rhinoplasty Society.[11] His lectures include topics such as the interplay between nasal function and aesthetics, aesthetic optimization of orthognathic surgery, fat grafting for cosmetic improvement, and use in rhinoplasty and jaw surgery.[12]
