Whether you think it’s too big, too bumpy or even too small, your nose is the focal point of your face, and it’s one feature that many American women are dissatisfied with. Could Rhinoplasty help you to achieve the perfect button nose?
Rhinoplasty can offer a number of benefits to those considering plastic surgery for whatever reason, and it’s great if you’re looking to achieve any of the following:
Many teenagers experience bullying at school due to a large or imperfect nose, and whilst it’s not a great idea to rush straight out for surgery, if it’s severely affecting your confidence and quality of life, then it is worth making an appointment for a consultation to discuss your options.
Is Rhinoplasty right for me?
In order to be eligible for rhinoplasty you should ideally be at least 13 years old (this is to ensure that your face has finished growing), be healthy and a non-smoker, have realistic goals as to what you can expect to achieve from the surgery, and be able to demonstrate personal reasons for rhinoplasty, rather than succumbing to pressure.
Rhinoplasty can help you to achieve a more contoured nose that matches your facial features, but don’t be under the illusion that you can turn up for plastic surgery with a picture of the type of nose you’d like – this is not how it works!

When it comes to the services of a plastic surgeon NY men and women have all sorts of procedures carried out these days. In years gone by, there was a lot of stigma attached to having plastic surgery, but this is no longer the case. People in New York these days have no qualms whatsoever about paying a visit to the plastic surgeon, and having this type of surgery has become increasingly common.
Plastic surgery has become a type of procedure that can really help those who are unhappy about some aspect of their appearance and want to do something to change it. When you feel unhappy about the way you look, it is only natural that you will want to change it. Sometimes you can make changes on your own without the need for surgery. However, there are other changes that can only be made with the help of surgery.
Get the appearance you want with the help of a plastic surgeon
With the help of a good plastic surgeon, you can achieve the appearance that you want, which means that you won’t have to simply put up with the areas of your body or face that make you unhappy. Making these changes can make a big difference to many areas of your life, which is why so many people now opt for this type of surgery.
Using plastic surgery to make changes and improvements can really improve your quality of life. You will feel happier in yourself when you make the changes you want, and you can benefit from increased confidence and self esteem.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the world’s biggest plastic surgery specialty organization, is also one of the most valuable patient resources for those considering cosmetic surgery. Among their many tips, the society also offers several guidelines for choosing a plastic surgeon.
Borrowing from the ASPS, here are 5 Tips for Finding the Right Physician, along with our thoughts on the matter.

Buying into the promise of a luxury vacation mixed with cosmetic surgery, a frightening number of individuals are traveling outside the US as “medical tourists.” While there are reputable doctors throughout the world, some plastic surgery patients are reporting horror stories from abroad. “Nip-tuck holidays” are all the rage, but what’s the reality?” asks Marie Claire AU. “Will you return with the body you’ve always dreamt of – or the scars from botched surgery and a superbug?” Of course, it’s not surprising that a lot of patients are seduced into going abroad. Less-than-scrupulous practitioners seem to be making big promises at suspiciously low prices.
Marie Claire AU profiled one patient who fell victim to just that. According to the article, the patient—who is referred to as “Tyra”—went to Thailand for a host of plastic surgery treatments, including Breast Augmentation and a Tummy Tuck. (Had she gotten the same treatment at home, it would have cost her more than three times as much, but this trip seemed to have cost her something much greater.) “The surgeon botched every single procedure; where her tummy should be flat, there’s now a huge bulge caused by damaged muscles; where she just wanted a few centimetres trimmed off her thighs, the skin is now uneven and lumpy,” says the article. While this only speaks of one patient’s account, it highlights the importance of ensuring quality care before going under the knife.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) also has something to say on the subject. The society lists a few questions you should ask before having surgery abroad. Topping the list are, “Is the physician qualified?” and, “Are the medical facility and equipment safe?” The best way to ensure proper care is to be certain that your practitioner is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. But, as the ASPS points out, “…though there are many skilled and qualified physicians practicing all over [the] world, it is often difficult for patients to assess the training and credentials of surgeons outside of the United States, which leads to an increase in complications.”

Recently, there have been a number of stories in the news that have lead the American Board of Plastic Surgery to remind patients to check on the credentials of their surgeons. What many patients do not realize is that it is possible to be licensed in one region, without being licensed to practice nationally. A credible, reliable plastic surgeon should have all of their certifications in place.
It is important to research any medical professional that you intend to visit. This means checking references (online resources can be very helpful), checking their credentials, and speaking with the doctor to determine how comfortable you are with him/her. Unfortunately, too many patients choose their surgeons based on price alone and that can lead to undesirable results.
Do not be afraid to be thorough – after all it is you as a patient that is paying for the surgery, and more importantly, it is your body. Any big decision should be carefully reviewed and considered.
To begin learning about your plastic surgery options, please make an appointment to speak with Dr. Fiorillo today.

Loss of collagen and elastin are the key reasons why your skin starts to sag as you age. When you lose collagen because of too much sun exposure, an unhealthy diet or from a poor skincare routine, you’ll notice fine lines and wrinkles developing around the eyes and mouth, and loose, rugged-looking skin. These effects can be reversed with skin tightening treatments such as SkinTyte. SkinTyte from Sciton has been featured in the media, and is an innovative way to strengthen, tone and tighten the skin.

If you have spoken to a doctor about whether or not you are a candidate for an elective plastic surgery procedure and have been told that you are not due to your weight, you may have felt discriminated against. This is not the reality. Doctors do not choose to operate on you based on appearance – any decision about candidacy is based on your overall health.
The medical profession has been careful about operating on obese individuals for years. More recently, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine has provided more research that proves there is risk involved with operating on the obese.
According to the report, individuals who are obese face a risk of complications that are 12 times greater than the average plastic surgery patient. The reasons for this include:
It is important that all individuals familiarize themselves with the risks of any procedure before moving forward. If you would like to learn more about your candidacy for a plastic surgery procedure, contact us.

Having a facelift will greatly benefit your overall appearance. It is, however, important that individuals recognize that there is a recovery process involved. Facelifts are often offered on an outpatient basis, but that does not eliminate the fact that it is still a surgical procedure.
When you are going in to have a facelift, you should expect the following:
