4 Tips for Choosing Your Ideal Plastic Surgeon

It is important to carefully choose who will perform your plastic surgery – after all, they will not only be in control of your cosmetic changes but your health and safety as well. However, the process of choosing the right plastic surgeon can feel overwhelming. There are so many to choose from that you may not know where to start. Here are 4 tips to help you choose your ideal plastic surgeon. 

  1. A good place to start is by asking around for referrals. Ask friends, family, and people at work – and don’t forget friends on social media. But don’t just get the doctor’s name and add it to your list. Ask what they liked about their surgeon, as well as what they didn’t like.
  2. When you go to their office for your consultation, evaluate the cleanliness of the office, the friendliness of the staff, and the demeanor of the doctor. If the office doesn’t seem very clean, the staff doesn’t seem to care that you have been waiting around for more than an hour after your appointment was supposed to start, and the doctor doesn’t seem to be listening to your concerns, it probably isn’t the doctor for you.
  3. Ask about training and certifications. Board certification means the doctor has undergone extensive training and has met stringent patient safety standards.   
  4. Ask to see examples of their work. Any plastic surgeon you are considering should be able to show you before and after pictures of previous patients. When looking through photos, look for bodies and faces that had a structure similar to yours before their surgery, and check the results of the surgery.

Choosing a plastic surgeon is just as important as choosing a family doctor. Carefully think about what you hope to get out of plastic surgery, and take the time to consider the different doctors in your area. The staff at Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, will be more than happy to discuss your procedure with you – they know you will decide that their office is the right one for you!

A Nose Job for Better Health!

When you think of a nose job (or “rhinoplasty”), you probably think of it as a cosmetic procedure. However, rhinoplasty can also be an important step towards improving your health and your quality of life. 

What happens during rhinoplasty?

Before your nose job, you will, of course, meet with your plastic surgeon to tell him or her what changes you would like to see. The plastic surgeon will develop a plan just for you so that you can see these results. 

Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure. The surgeon will change the size and shape of your nose by adjusting, removing, or adding bone and cartilage.   

How can rhinoplasty help health problems?

A bent or crooked septum (the “wall” between the two sides of the nose) or blockage in the nasal passages can cause both breathing and sleep problems. One sleep issue that may arise is sleep apnea, a serious condition in which the patient stops breathing over and over again throughout the night. This can cause the patient to wake up over and over again, as the body tries to get regular breathing started again. The patient may not even realize they are waking up throughout the night – they just know they are tired all the time. Over years of living with sleep apnea, serious health problems can result. 

Snoring is another sleep problem (for you and perhaps your family members who are kept awake because of it!). Rhinoplasty can be used to remove or adjust cartilage in the nose or to straighten the septum to help stop snoring (however, you should be aware that obesity, asthma, or allergies can also cause snoring, and rhinoplasty won’t help if one of these is the cause of your snoring). 

Rhinoplasty is a great way to change your appearance – after all, the shape and the size of the nose can affect how the entire face looks. But it can also help to improve your breathing, your sleep, and your health. Whether you are considering a nose job for cosmetic or medical reasons, Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center in Chester, New Jersey, can help. Call (908) 879-2222 for an appointment today!
