A good plastic surgery procedure is one that provides not only an improved appearance but one in which the rest of the world wouldn’t be able to tell that anything had been done.

How do you judge a good nose job?

A good plastic surgery procedure is one that provides not only an improved appearance but one in which the rest of the world wouldn’t be able to tell that anything had been done. The surgeon that can provide this has to be a good artistic plastic surgeon and not merely a plastic technician. It upsets me when I walk through a grocery aisle and see the tabloid magazines pointing out how this celebrity or that celebrity had a bad cosmetic procedure- as if all plastic surgical procedures turn out badly. The way I respond to my patients is that the vast majority of procedures turn out fine, that they would be surprised how many of their neighbors have had procedures, but they might never know it because they turned out well.

Ashlee Simpson reportedly had a nose job in April 2006

A good example of what I am talking about is Ashlee Simpson. Simpson reportedly had a nose job in April 2006. When asked about it in an interview in May, Simpson neither confirmed nor denied it. In the May 2007 issue of Harper’s Bazaar, she said that she was not insecure about her appearance and had not been beforehand. She later stated that “as long as people have two eyes” they could determine for themselves whether she had a nose job.

Here is a celebrity starlet who underwent the procedure for her own reasons… probably because she didn’t like the appearance of her nose. And regardless of the reasons for her procedure, some people needed to speculate whether she had the procedure at all. And finally, there is no doubt that the appearance of her “new” nose is attractive, natural, and improves her overall appearance. Kudos to her plastic surgeon.

Rhinoplasty procedures can be one of the most satisfying and life-changing procedures in cosmetic surgery. I have patients that range from 17 years old to 70 years old who come in with complaints about the appearance of the nose. The nose is after all, the central feature of your face.  Rhinoplasty procedures are becoming one of the most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons.  Typical complaints include:

• my nose is too large
• my nose is too small
• my nose has a bump
• my nose has a drooping tip
• my nose has a big tip
• my nose is too large
• my nose is crooked

What most people don’t realize without coming in for a consultation is that not all of these procedures require a surgical nose job.  Some of these issues can be addressed non-surgically.  I was one of the first plastic surgeons according to one of my filler representatives to use cosmetic fillers such as Juvederm, and Restylane to address the cosmetic appearance of the nose.  To some degree, all the complaints can be addressed with one of these fillers, without surgery, and no need for recovery. Juvederm and Restylane can last up to 1 year.

At least half of my patients benefit more from a Surgical Nose Job.  The goals, of course are to provide an improvement that appears natural.   If you look at my before and after pictures on my website ( www.GoToBeauty.com ), you will see that I attempt to provide my patients with an attractive appearance and an appearance of never having had a rhinoplasty.  I spend a lot of time performing revision rhinoplasties on patients from other offices where the results are not as natural.

The first step is an initial consultation which is complimentary.  During your consultation, we will discuss your image with some digital imaging software.  We will discuss your complaints and desires come up with a plan that fits your desired image and lifestyle.  Sometimes this means a non-surgical option, and sometimes it means a surgical rhinoplasty.


Most frequent questions and answers

Acne is the most common skin condition in the U.S. affecting nearly 50 million Americans at any time. Acne is caused when hair follicles become clogged with oil and dead skin cells. It can often be persistent and unsightly.

The Acne Clear BBL is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without expensive creams or toxic medicines…

Brown sun and age spots are some of the first signs of aging and sun damage.

Treatment options include

  1. Creams such as hydroquinone and retin A.  Hydroquinone is a bleaching agent while Retin A increases cellular turnover.  Over-the-counter creams will generally not have high enough concentrations to be effective.
  2. Forever Young BBL – Cutting edge technology providing the most powerful and effective IPL option.

The Forever Young BBL uses Broad Band Light to alter skin melanin and rejuvenate cellular DNA.  Instead of spending time and money on ineffective skin care products many of our patients have turned to the Forever Young BBL to make their skin more vibrant and youthful; reducing brown and red pigmentation problems, promoting collagen, and rejuvenating cellular DNA. It is the most popular laser treatment in our clinic.

What to expect from the Forever Young BBL:

  • Treatments take 20-30 minutes
  • Up to 80% improvement after a single treatment.
  • Most patients will benefit from adding a Micro Laser Peel and a Profractional Laser Peel ( Triple Laser Package )
  • Fine facial lines and wrinkles are a result of UV sun damage, the breakdown of collagen, and a decrease in skin hydration. The Micro Laser Peel and the Profractional Laser are ablative lasers designed to reverse these changes.

    • The Micro Laser Peel precisely ablates the surface skin in order to remove UV damaged skin
    • The Profractional Laser ablates deep columns of skin that can reach to the deep dermis. This allows for skin contraction but it also encourages new cell grown and organizes new collagen

    Results depend on the depth of treatment. Recovery from a maintenance treatment can be as little as a day; but recovery from aggressive treatments can be as much as 7 days. Many patients will benefit from the addition of the Forever Young BBL ( Triple Laser Package ).
